Horse Racing Tips at Flemington

Read through our best bets at Flemington this Saturday.

Best WIN Bet: Snitzepeg (Race 1, No. 1)

WIN: $7.00 at William Hill or PricePump at $8.00
In the first of the day, Snitzepeg is a nice value bet for the win. He’s coming off back to back wins at Caulfield and Flemington. So he’s aiming for the hat-trick. The punters are also taking a liking as he’s come in from $9.50 to $7.00.


Best WIN Bet: Bring Me Roses (Race 2, No. 1)

WIN: $3.80 at William Hill or PricePump at $4.20
Bring Me Roses is the favourite here and will be hard to catch. He won at Flemington last start and has shown impressive form in her early career. Mark Zahra is a quality jockey and we’re tipping he’ll lead her to victory.


Best PLACE Bet: Desert Lashes (Race 3, No. 4)

PLACE: $3.00 at William Hill
In an open race, we like Desert Lashes to place. She’ll be fitter third up and has been great at this distance. At the sprint distance of 1100m, she’s won 5 of 6 starts and hasn’t finished outside the top two. So based on her distance record, she’s a great value bet for the place.


Best WIN Bet: Aloft (Race 4, No. 4)

WIN: $5.50 at William Hill or PricePump at $6.50
Aloft was disappointing last start, finishing 9th of 10 at Caulfield. But he does have a better record at the track, winning 2 of 4 starts. He also rode a close third to Melbourne Cup favourite Almandin at Flemington last start. So he’s good value at $5.50 for the win.


Best PLACE Bet: Catchy (Race 5, No. 16)

PLACE: $2.90 at William Hill
The Coolmore Stud Stakes is an open race so we’re looking at Catchy to grab a place. She’s shown impressive form at the distance, winning 2 of 3 starts. She’s finished third in two straight races, including the Caulfield Guineas last start. A 89% place rate record is good enough for us to back her to place.


Best WIN Bet: Shoals (Race 6, No. 16)

WIN: $5.00 at William Hill or PricePump at $6.00
Shoals has been a strong performer in her early career. She’s won 4 of 6 starts and won at Flemington (1200m) in her first start here back in March. She has finished a close second in two straight races so we’re backing her to get over the line this time. She’ll be fresh from a 3 week break after the 1000 Caufield Guineas as well.


Best WIN Bet: Ace High (Race 7, No. 1)

WIN: $6.00 at William Hill or PricePump at $7.00
In the Victoria Derby, Ace High is the favourite and his form is hard to back against. He won at Randwick last start and will be coming off a month break. He races well after a spell and should enjoy the extra distance (2500m). He won at 2000m last start and will be hard to beat.


Best WIN Bet: Tosen Stardom (Race 8, No. 1)

WIN: $6.00 at William Hill or PricePump at $7.00
Tosen Stardom is our favourite for the Kennedy Mile. He won the Toorak Hanicap last start and he’s been in good form against quality runners. He came second to Palentino in March at the track and distance. So we’re backing him to go one better this Saturday.


Best WIN Bet: Rich Charm (Race 9, No. 11)

WIN: $6.50 at William Hill or PricePump at $7.50
In the last on Derby Day, we like Rich Charm to win this race. He beat Keen Array last start at Caulfield and has a good record at Flemington. He’s had 2 wins from 4 starts and also has 5 wins from 9 starts at the distance. He’s third up from a spell and should be even fitter for the run on Saturday.
