Best Bets – Sat 4th November

VICTORIA DERBY

FLEMINGTON R7 (2500M) 4:20 pm

Hard not to be impressed with the way RIFF ROCKET demolished them in the Super Impose Stakes at this track two starts back then he started odds on a Caulfield but was just bit dour late and missed out. Back to the bigger track at Flemington and think he is just a class above most of these.
James McDonald stays aboard and he is winning everything of late. Expect he will add to his Group 1 winners in the Derby.

COOLMORE STUD STAKES

FLEMINGTON R6 (1200M) 3:40 pm

Going to stick with STRETAN ANGEL at the nice juicy each way odds. She chimed in at the right time and got the prize in the Danehill Stakes down the Flemington straight last start. She gets out to the 1200m which looks like it will suit and she goes on top.
Liked the barrier draw close to the outside rail and third-up from spell she should be primed. If Daniel Stackhouse gets the right gaps last 200m she can win this.

EMPIRE ROSE STAKES

FLEMINGTON R8 (1600M) 5:00 pm

PRINCESS GRACE has been so consistent this prep in Australia that she deserves a win. Meets the girls on level weights here and that could be the difference. She has been chasing home Mr Brightside at weight-for-age earlier this campaign and that form good enough for this.
They may elect to ride her a bit quieter from her awkward gate and that may suit her to produce a sprint at them over last 200m.

QUALITY HANDICAP

EAGLE FARM R8 (1400M) 6:10 pm

EKATERINA was given a gun ride last time out and took all the gaps when they appeared, to get money to remain undefeated second up. Will have taken further benefit from that outing and from the soft draw appears to be the one they will all have to beat.

PRINCE OF WALES STAKES

ASCOT R7 (1000M) 7:20 pm

RED CAN MAN looks extremely hard to roll again here second-up. Last time out he sat off the speed and reeled them in easily, holding off a late charge late. He should get the gun run again and with even further fitness on his side, he should be winning.
