Racing Tips – Saturday Best Bets for Flemington


Flemington hosts a meeting for the second straight Saturday with ten races set to commence at 12.15pm.

Best Bet

10. Kiko
Flemington R3 (1.20pm)

Kiko took longer than most anticipated to break her maiden but she finds an ideal race to go back to back in. There was no fluke about the win either as she ran terrific time compared to the better class race on the night. The Jim Conlan trained mare was group placed as a two year, if she’s getting back to that form she can account for this field with 51Kg on her back after the claim.

Recommended Price: $3.50
Confidence Level: 4.5/5

2. Bermadez
Flemington R1 (12.15pm)

The market has this as a race in two between Superazi and Bermadez – and fair enough – but the latter should be much shorter. His recent form is quite clearly superior and he maps to get the better run. Following three straight seconds, he looks primed to break through.

Recommended Price: $1.65
Confidence Level: 5/5

1. Austmarr
Flemington R4 (1.55pm)

Godolphin filly Austmarr is building a formidable record with two wins from five starts and should prove very hard to beat here first up. She was terrific in her recent jumpout at this track, winning by a big margin. Respect the Sydney filly Stefi Magnetica, but this is a tougher assignment than winning at Orange.

Recommended Price: $4.00
Confidence Level: 3.5/5

4. Dehorned Unicorn
Flemington R7 (3.40pm)

Dehorned Unicorn has been racing most consistently in Sydney of late and finds a nice race to break through in down in Melbourne. Trainer Joe Pride is highly astute when it comes to placing his horses and his stable has been flying of late. The booking of Blake Shinn is a nice push as well.

Recommended Price: $4.60
Confidence Level: 3.5/5

2. Heart of Puissance
Flemington R9 (5.00pm)

Heart of Puissance is worth a small throw at the stumps here. The gelding has a lot of talent but has also had a lot of issues, but I really liked the way he ran through the line under no pressure at his most recent jumpout. If he can find some old form here he is capable of showing up at huge odds.

Recommended Price: $31/7.50
Confidence Level: 2.5/5
