Best Bets

Our Flemington Horse Racing Tips for the weekend.

Cherry Tortoni (Flemington Race 3 No. 1)
I wouldn’t normally make a two-year-old a best bet, but this chestnut gelding looked something special when he won last start. Unbeaten in two runs he ran on strongly out wide to charge clear over the last 75m and win by 1.5 lengths over 1200m at Sale on 27 May. Then he came to town and charged to the front at the 200m to win by 1.5 lengths over 1420m at Flemington on 20 June. He should win again.


How to pick a winner

Each Way

Great Again (Flemington Race 5 No. 1):
This Viscount gelding has won 10 of his 23 starts and has a great record on soft tracks. He resumed from a spell with a 0.1 length win in the Listed Straight Six over 1200m at Flemington on 23 May, then he kept fighting to the line but pulled up lame when 2.05 lengths 6th over 1200m at Moonee Valley on 13 June. He should be over that issue and is worth an each-way bet at the current price.


Best Lay

La Tigeresa (Flemington Race 6 No. 5):
This Street Cry mare is the early favourite in this 1400m race. She has met trouble at her two most recent starts as she was held up from the 300-50m when 3.1 lengths 8th over 1200m at Flemington on 23 May, then she was held up from the 400-100m when 4.5 lengths 8th over 1200m at Moonee Valley on 13 June. She is due for a change of luck but has no wins from 3 runs at Flemington and has some very good opposition here so is far from a sure thing.
