Best Bets – Sat 9th March

Sires' Produce Stakes

Flemington Race 4 (1400m) 2:30 pm

STAY FOCUSED was really good last time out in the Blue Diamond. Had to do all the work out three wide and held on when the swoopers came over them late. The 1400m here at Flemington should suit him and he expect he will race up on speed. With ounce of luck last 200m should be in finish.

Newmarket Handicap

Flemington Race 5 (1200m) 3:05 pm

Looking for some value in the Newmarket Handicap in ESPIONA. She has won three times second up in the past and her run against Imperatriz was full of merit first-up. Looks well weighted at 54.5 kgs and the favorite Imperatriz has to carry a weight that hasn’t been successful in this race since 2012 when Hay List won. She could very well be the one running all over the and well worth a ticket each-way.

Kewney Stakes

Flemington Race 6 (1600m) 3:40 pm

MOLLYNICKERS is a lightly raced filly from the Moody/Coleman camp and she is full of potential. She was super in The Vanity three weeks back when running home solidly for a solid placing over the 1400m. She should have taken plenty of improvement from that outing and she looks very hard to beat here at the mile.

Bunbury Cup

Bunbury Race 8 (2000m) 4:47 pm

Although the favorite Maracchino looks hard to beat he has never won over 2000m, so I’m tipping CASINO SEVENTEEN to get over the top of him on the line. This gelding won the Perth Cup on New Years day and the step up in journey looks perfect for him at this stage of his campaign. Can’t go wrong having something each-way on him.

Military Rose Plate

Gold Coast Race 7 (1100m) 3:08 pm

CHINNY BOOM should be able to bounce back into the winners stall here after a couple of placings in much harder class than she faces here today. From the low draw, she should get a soft lead or camp just off them and prove too good for them at the finishing line.
