Flemington Race 6 K A Morrison Hcp 1200m.
Mighty Like was a winner this t/d when resuming at this meeting last year, good effort when first up in June and fresh for this. Ruettiger also went well here this time last year, could be working up to a win. Divine Mr Artie won at this t/d when resuming late last year then not disgraced in The Standish. Kirani placed at this t/d before a spell, fitter now and can go well here.
Summary: Divine Mr Artie($4.6) looks suited here, plenty of place chances including Mighty Like ($16), Ruettiger ($5) and Kirani ($21).
Flemington Race 7 George Watson Hcp 2000m.
Killarney Kid has a very good record at this t/d and looks suited this time. Extra Zero is still racing well at 10, why not rate at least a place chance again? Kilimanjaro resumed with a solid third running on, extra trip suits. Magic Consul is going well, has placed at this t/d so trip suits. Pacodali was an on pace winner here last start, going well.
Summary: the imported Kilimanjaro ($3.3) might have a touch of class, next best Killarney Kid ($4.8), Extra Zero ($9), Magic Consul ($5.5), Pacodali ($5.5).
Flemington Race 8 Domain Plate 1400m.
Moonlites Choice won but pulled up lame last start which is a slight concern. Invictum Domina likes to lead, 2 runs in so far have been good. Princess Of Queens faded here at the end of last preparation, good effort when resuming. Special Diva led throughout to win at Caulfield then fourth with 57 over a mile here last time out, chance. Good Oh is racing well and a beaten favourite last start at Sale, could manage a place. Queen Annabel resented the tongue tie last time, won maiden with confidence and could pay to forgive.
Summary: liked the run of Princess Of Queens ($7.5), have to go wide in the exotics and consider Invictum Domina ($8.5), Special Diva ($11), Good Oh ($18) and Queen Annabel ($27).
Flemington Race 9 Flem. Event Staff Hcp 1100m.
Typically open race to finish the card, Highland Beat was a narrow winner here last start and should go well again. Invincible Al finished a long way back but gets a gear change here with might make the difference. Knowable was a winner here over 1400 and led to win when last resuming, could be hard to catch. Misty Girl won her maiden by 6 lengths and not bad at Lakeside, blinkers go on. Tahi led to win her maiden by more than 3 lengths, straight here to headquarters shows a bit of confidence in his ability.
Summary: Highland Beat ($6.5) is expected to race well again, others also rate highly including Invincible Al ($5.5), Knowable ($5.5), Misty Girl ($10) and Tahi ($9).
Have a good weekend, happy punting.
