Individual Tips

Flemington R2 #10 Accountablity
Win 5 units $4.00

Waller stayer who off winning two back to back 2400 mtr races given freshen up and set for this, latest 3rd at 2400 Caulfield when needing the run and not suited on tighter turning track, once balanced up on straightening flew home late (3rd) running very slick final 200 splits, should further improve off that run, big track suits and Oliver stays on

Flemington R4 #6 Skyman
Win 4 units $5.00

Has promised to win a nice race this prep but has found some strong form around him and yet to do so, such form behind the likes of Viral, Floating Artist and Mr Brightside, now drops back a few levels in grade and also drops in weight, open race, gets its chance today

Flemington R6 #4 Enthaar
Win 5 units $3.40

Very smart and fast sprinter with Maher stable who looks to have been set to target this race for some time, won her first two race starts over this trip (1000 mtrs) then fav for Blue Diamond, put away for lengthy spell, been back in work for some time in prep for this, should sit and stalk the likely lead / speed behind Profiteer and then get her chance late

Melbourne Cup – Flemington R7

My Top 3


#7 DELPHI
Import stayer with quality Anthony Freedman team, forgivable run last start off strange pressure ride, wet track and 7 day back up, looks to peak here, will sit forward with nice run, joc and trainer very good at winning these big races

#22 FLOATING ARTIST
Another import with local Maher stable (win 26% in staying races), 3 wins and two placings last 5 runs in Oz, gets in very low at the weights and has prior outstanding UK form around some of their best stayers, looks to be peaking for this

#2 INCENTIVISE
Local hope and fav, won last 9 straight, killed them in Caulfield Cup (which was the main target race), up further in the weights and warm fav, likely gets lovely run to sit behind the lead and give it a big shake on straightening
