⚡ Stakes Day ⚡

🟥 RACE 2.

Looks a race custom made for the talented 4YO-  #5 TUVALU ($1.80).. 

He made a mess of them first up at Wbool and both the 2nd and 3rd horses (who he thrashed) have since come out and won.

From his 6 career starts, he's already a 4x time winner with 2 x 2nds on his resume...  Those two x 2nds were to the hands of G1 star "I'M THUNDERSTRUCK" 👀...  

It's very good form and you'd think he's still on an upward spiral this horse!? 

My one slight query with him, is that he is 4 weeks between runs??? Issue??! 🤔

He's a deserved favorite and all being well with him, he should beat these..? 

#7 GENTLEMAN ROY ($3.6) is the lay of the weekend in this race for mine.. I don't think he can win..

He's had a good campaign, but what has he beaten? He jumps from B70 grade here where he's had things on a platter, up to B84 grade...!??

I'd be taking him on "ALL DAY/EVERYDAY" at that price..!!!

#10 THREEANDFOURPENCE ($16) is the value runner in the race and the quinella horse with Tuvalu in my opinion. 

He was given a 15 out of 10 ride by Jye McNeil last time, and from gate 2 here Saturday he will get all the favors in the run... He was only 2nd up last start and he looks ready to peak here 3rd up.... He's best efforts are very good and if Tuvalu has a day off, he's the one I want to be with at the price! 

⭐Suggested Bet⭐

Back #5 TUVALU ($1.8) straight out and save on #10 THREEANDFOURPENCE ($16) each way (More so the place) and in quinella's. 


Nice race for the 2YO's here, up the 1100m Flemington straight..

#14 IM LOVIN'YA ($6) & #12 WALTZ ON ($5) were both terrific on their debuts in the Blue Diamond Prelude. 

 I'M LOVIN'YA in particular was excellent after bombing the start and really letting down nicely late in what has already proven to be a good form race...  

The big overs in the race for mine is the debutante  #9 LATVIAN ($19)...  

I thought he jumped out really nicely in preparation for this behind another very smart unraced one (Zamborghini)  and I thought at the $19, he looks very good each way shopping! 

The other horse in the race that looks to be big overs is #6 DEMON AWARD ($18)... 

He draws a sticky gate in 13, but he had no luck on debut and still ran exceptionally well, all things considered.... He's not out of this!!

⭐Suggested Bet ⭐

Work around #14 I'M LOVIN'YA ($6) & #9 LATVIAN ($19) both each way.

🟥 RACE 5- Group 3- THE VANITY.

Nice enough race for the 3YO's here over 1400m.

#5 BARB RAIDER ($4.2) is the class filly in the race and she looks ready to go off here first up going off her most recent jump out where she looked VERY SHARP! She's a very nice horse and also excels fresh! 

#1 CARDIGAN QUEEN ($5.5) was brilliant first up sweeping down the centre and winning like a filly in for a big campaign!!

She also looked like she would improve from the parade, so expect another big run here 2nd up! 

#10 GENUINELY ($35) was impressive at Pakenham last start and the form around that race has already looked ok since.... 

If there was a 'blowout', she could be it!??

⭐Suggested Bet ⭐

#5 BARB RAIDER ($4.2) looks a super each way bet in this!! Save on #1 CARDIGAN QUEEN ew ($5.5).


WOWIEEEE!! What a race! 👀💥

One of the strongest editions of this race in some time.. Absolutely no doubt!!! 

Clearly #1 NATURE STRIP ($2.6) is the one they ALL have to catch..  

We all know he's near unbeatable on his day, but he's certainly not bulletproof! That we also know! 

With both #2 EDUARDO ($4.4) & #6 THE ASTROLOGIST ($46- Outclassed) both noted speedsters, the tempo should be above genuine! 

I like the chances of #3 MASKED CRUSADER ($8.5) to bowl them over late in this..  He's a proper, proper G1 horse this bloke and with a good tempo ensured, he could just snipe them late here with his electrifying turn of foot! 💥

I liked the way he jumped out up the straight recently and he's the clear X-Factor in the race for mine, along with the outstanding 3YO-  #8 HOME AFFAIRS ($6). 

He could be anything HOME AFFAIRS! 👀

If there was too be a possible boilover in the race, #7 SWATS THAT ($46) & #5 THE INFERNO ($34) shouldn't be left out of your quaddies!! 

SWATS THAT in particular jumped out "SUPER" recently and she is a horse that has always run her best races up the Flemington straight.

⭐Suggested Bet ⭐

Like #3 MASKED CRUSADER ($8.5) each way in this. Small savers on #7 SWATS THAT ($46) & #5 THE INFERNO ($34).

🟥 RACE 8. 

My best each way bet of the day comes up in this. #2 JUNIPAL ($18)

He looks ridiculous overs for mine... Especially for a horse who's down in class and had 3 jump outs in prep for this first up run! 

 He's very good fresh over this track and trip and I loved the way he jumped out recently, in what was a star studded trial.  (Hitotsu, Forgot You etc)

⭐Suggested Bet ⭐

Back #2 JUNIPAL ($18) each way.


🟩 RACE 8.

Really like the Danny O'Brien trained #3 EMBOLISM ($2.9) in this.

He was right in the market in a much stronger race at Flemington, but they have opted for a far easier assignment across the border in Adelaide. 

He looks to have come back well going by his jump outs and he certainly looks to have had enough work poured into him, to let rip first up here! 

Two starts back, he ran 5th,  finishing under 2.5 lens off I'm Thunderstruck, Tofane and Superstorm!  👀

He brings 'anything' close to that form here and he blows these off the park!! 

     Good Luck! 🥷👊
