Sat. 19 Jan. 2019 – Fixed odds prices from Sportsbet Friday.
Flemington Race 6 1400m Hcp.
Mastering ($2.9) got the job done last start, can’t fault runs this time in but odds are not generous. Rib Eye ($12) placed at this track and distance in May, usually runs well fresh. Set To Sparkle ($6) won at this t/d in mares grade last start and gets a little extra weight here, can get into a place. Hay Now ($8.5) beat Set To Sparkle at her previous start, also might be better off in mares grade but include in exotics. Mount Kilcoy ($6.5) resumes and rarely puts in a bad run, pulled up lame and spelled but should be ready to show best again.
Flemington Race 7 1000m Hcp.
Thermal Current ($7) posted his last win at this t/d, can figure in the finish. Champagne Cuddles ($2) has a good record first up and Group form. Glenall ($3.9) resumes, was a winner of a recent trial and has won first up. Not much else to recommend.
Flemington Race 8 1800m Hcp.
Black Sail ($8) did just enough to win last start, has placed at this t/d. Five Kingdom ($5) led to win at this t/d last start, down in weight here and another win would not surprise. Kentucky Breeze ($9.5) set the pace at the last 2 starts and has placed here, can be in the finish if they go forward again. Kilmacurragh ($8) placed at 2000m at Caulfield and drops a few kg here, looks suited. Laure Me In ($2.3) came up much shorter than I expected in the early market, at least a place chance but wouldn’t take the short odds to win.
Flemington Race 9 1200m Hcp.
Tricky race to finish out the card. Just Hifalutin ($10) ran on late when resuming at Caulfield, goes well at this t/d. Streets Of Avalon ($11) had a narrow defeat when resuming, should go well while the track remains dry. Intuition ($5) will be fitter now and could be ready to show something in Melbourne. Columbia ($13) was a last start winner at Morphettville and the jockey travels to Flemington with them, up in class but could be value. Langhro ($3.1) rarely misses a place and will be fitter for the first up run, likely to place again.
Have a good weekend, happy punting.
