Best Bets – Sat 2nd March

Australian Guineas

FLEMINGTON RACE 8 (1600m) 4:15 pm

KING COLORADO should be peaking now third up and looking for the mile of the Guineas distance here. He chased Riff Rocket all the way down the straight and seemed to hit a flat spot around the clock tower and just couldn’t peg him back. At the odds I’ll give him another chance to turn the tables and back him each way.

Blamey Stakes

FLEMINGTON RACE 9 (1600m) 4:55 pm

BERKELEY SQUARE took his time to get warm last time out here but once he got some clear room, he went to the line super. He is a second-up winner previously and from the low draw should get a decent run just off the speed. Hopefully, he will find some room down the straight and be the one running all over them late.

Lex Piper Stakes

ASCOT RACE 7 (1600m) 4:11 pm

Looking at A LOT OF GOOD MEN to bounce back into the winners column today after a string of luckless efforts and placings in his past couple of campaigns. Three starts back got beat 1.5 lengths in the Northerly and he was luckless fresh at Pinjarra, then battled away well for a third last week at Ascot. He is a class act and should be right in this race.

BM78 Handicap

EAGLE FARM RACE 5 (1400m) 2:33 pm

Going with the very consistent mare in AFRICAN DAISY. She is racing very well and deserves to break back into the winners stall. Although she has drawn wide, she will press forward and sit on speed. Look for her to work to the front straightening for home and she can hold off the swoopers.

BM68 Hcp

EAGLE FARM RACE 10 (1600m) 5:47 pm

OCEAN ZAR has had a couple of weeks off since an impressive win here over 1400m pulling clear to win by 3 lengths. The 1600m looks perfect for her now being third-up and peaking at this stage of her campaign. Hopefully she can get a cart into the race and be too strong for them at the finish.
