2019 Flemington Finals Day Tips & Preview

There is plenty of money on offer for owners at Flemington on Saturday however we will be looking at making some ourself on the punt.

There is a number of quality races with plenty of ‘good orses’ and we look to take advantage with our tips and preview of the full card at HQ below.

Leilani Series Final (1400m)
ORGANZA

Despite the big weight, organza looks to have a lot more class than every other runner in this race. She has been a perennial place-getter in her career however he runs in Queensland were full of merit and she can return to the winners stall with a win in this race.

VRC-CVR Cup Tour Trophy (2000m)
SECOND BULLET

I go into this race with no confidence whatsoever and if you like one I say go ahead and back it! Second Bullet is a consistent performer and he was left for dead last time out at Caulfield in the race won by Pacodali. He was never a chance in that race the way it was run however he hit the line well. He is better suited over slightly further but he meets Pacodali much, much better at the weights and is a nice price.

Silver Bowl Series Final (1600m)
BUFFALO RIVER

Buffalo River is a very talented young horse and he gave his rivals a lesson at his second Australian start at Ladbrokes Park. He had one to chase in the straight and he powered past and was eased up on the line. I think he will win this race and go on to a better grade of racing in the Spring if Mike Moroney and connections so chose.

Banjo Paterson Series Final (2600m)
FLOW METER

I’m perplexed at the price of Flow Meter in this race. Age is but a number for the nine year old gelding and he is clearly handling the step up in distance just fine this prep. He meets Last Week 3.5 kgs better at the weights for beating him last start and Chouxting The Mob 5.5kg better! I’m not sure he will win but he is by far the best betting play in this race.

Listed Taj Rossi Series Final (1600m)
PANCHO

Rubisaki was fairly dominant in her last start at Flemington however Pancho represents some value in this race in my opinion. He didn’t get it all his way or find his fastest gear in that race and he meets Rubisaki 2.5kgs better at the weights.

The Mahogany Challenge Final (2500m)
PEACE BROTHER

Peace Brother looks overs here. His past two runs have been very promising and I think he’ll appreciate Flemington as well as the step up in distance at this stage in his prep. I think he is better suited just off the pace like he was a Sandown and Beau Mertens should have that option from barrier one.

All Victorian Sprint Series Final (1200m)
HOLY BLADE

Holy Blade was narrowly denied down the Flemington straight last start and like a lot of my tips today, meets a couple of them much better at the weights in this race. the 1200m is a slight concern having had two goes for no placings however I’m willing to back that he handles it at his current quote of $7.50 at publish. 

Listed VRC-CVR Winter Championship Series Final (1600m)
HELLOVA STREET

This is another very competitive race and I’m leaning towards the proven and very consistent Hellova Street. He is now eight years of age but his record at the mile in races around this level of racing is extremely good. If he steals some cheap sectionals in front, you just now he will be fighting out the finish.

Rivette Series Final (1600m)
SURE KNEE

I’m happy to be with the Chris Waller trained favourite in the last. She is clearly a talented filly and she is a last start winner at this track and distance against some handy ones. Finish the day with a winner hopefully!
