Racing Tips – Saturday Best Bets for Flemington and Rosehill

Expect soft going at Flemington and a heavy deck at Rosehill.

Best Bet

1. Francesco Guardi
Rosehill R5 (1:30pm)

Francesco Guardi is looking for three straight wins and looks well placed to achieve it. The Waller trained gelding does everything right in his races, and should get the right run once again here. Happy to risk Lord Ardmore jumping from 1300m to 1800m off five weeks break and Comme Bella Fille’s racing pattern makes her a lay.

Recommended Price: $3.20
Confidence Level: 4/5

More Racing Tips

1. Cacofonix
Rosehill R3 (12:20pm)

Cacofonix is an ex-Kiwi on debut for Kris Lees and he certainly showed plenty back in his homeland, winning twice and finishing midfield in the G1 Levin Classic in four runs. Suspect he will be better over further but class might be enough to get him over the line here.

Recommended Price: $7.00
Confidence Level: 3.5/5

2. Sweet Thomas
Flemington R4 (1:45pm)

Sweet Thomas ran second in this race last year and can go one better here under 4.5Kg less. Forget his latest effort on heavy ground in the Caloundra Cup, there was very little between him and the short priced favourite Through Irish Eyes in the Brisbane Cup. On a firmer surface, he can bounce back.

Recommended Price: $7.00
Confidence Level: 3/5

1. Alcyone
Rosehill R6 (2:05pm)

Alcyone has a terrific fresh record which he can build on here. The Godolphin galloper was dominant first up last spring in a handy form race and last time he raced at this sort of trip he finished second behind Mr Brightside. Hugh Bowman should give him the perfect run from barrier two.

Recommended Price: $5.00
Confidence Level: 3/5

8. Miss Dior
Flemington R6 (3:00pm)

Squid Game is a dominant favourite here but his racing pattern is problematic. He will be giving them a big start over 1000m. One horse that will not be giving away a start is Miss Dior. The Sydney filly will go to the front from the outside draw and coming back 100m in distance from her first up run looks ideal. Can go close at big odds.

Recommended Price: $7.50
Confidence Level: 3.5/5

15. Incredulous Dream
Flemington R8 (4:47pm)

Incredulous Dream has always had plenty of ability and the booking of Jamie Kah is a primer to a big first up run. She has jumped out very well for this and typically runs a big race first up (4:2-1-0). Looks an excellent each way chance.

Recommended Price: $6.00
Confidence Level: 3/5
