Best Bets – Sat 7th October


FLEMINGTON R8 (2000m) 4:25 pm

Looking forward to seeing the Hong Kong champion in ROMANTIC WARRIOR making his debut here at Flemington. Although his target is the Cox Plate in a few weeks, his class should get him through the Turnbull especially at his pet distance of a mile where he has won 5 out of 6 starts and only beaten by Golden Sixty earlier in the year. All reports are that he is ready to kick off with a win.


FLEMINGTON R4 (1600m) 2:05 pm

Going to forget that last start loss by LEGACIES three weeks ago when she looked the winner on straightening before fading late and pulling up lame. She did do some work early in that race and I’m going back to her brilliant win last time in, when she raced away with the Anzac Day Stakes at Hillside after having a nice sit early. Hopefully she can find some cover from the draw and produce that turn of hoof she has shown prior.


FLEMINGTON R5 - Danehill Stakes (1100m) 2:20 pm

Going to stick with one of my faves here in DON CORLEONE who was only beaten 2 lengths in the Golden Rose by stablemate Militarize. He had a nice trail in behind them and was held up down the straight when the swoopers appeared. He should get every chance down the open spaces of the Flemington straight course and appears to be a good each way play.


EAGLE FARM R8 (2400m) 4:57 pm

DESERT ICON ran a ripper last time out in the Colin Stephens at Rosehill a fortnight ago behind Athabascan. Has also been around the mark in the Wyong and Newcastle Cups recently and seems ready to break back in the winner’s stall here in the Queensland Cup.


KALGOORLIE R8 (2300m) 7:25 pm

VILLEINS won the Boulder Cup impressively last time out with Pike aboard and meets a very similar field here in the XXXX Kalgoorlie Cup. Chris Parnham takes over this time around and this up and comer, should be winning again.
