Tips for Flemington quaddie 

Should play even, although we may get significant rain Friday night. There’s a chance of getting 8ml which would make a bit of a difference.

Race 6 (1400m – Mares Grp 2)

#1 I Am A Star (Nichols / Oliver)
Group 1 winning mare who has had two runs back in better company. Better suited back here amongst the mares. Maps well.

#3 Oregon’s Day (Price / Zahra)
Ran well 2nd up and should be fitter for this. Can run to best.

#7 Sword Of Light (Ellerton & Zahra / Lane)
Not really suited 1st up when resuming. Can improve here on home track out to 1400m.

#10 Schism (Maher / Mertens)
Been up a long time but keeps running well. Good record this track and distance. Maps well.

#11 Swampland (Dwyer / Symons)
Arguably should have won last start. In career-best form. Good record this track and distance.

Race 7 (1600m – WFA Grp 1)

#1 Hartnell (Cummings / McEvoy)
Terrific 1st up. Should roll forward here and own this race.

Race 8 (2500m – Listed)

Lloyd x Lloyd x Lloyd x Lloyd

#1 Almandin (Hickmott / Olver)
Ran well 1st up sitting wide entire trip. Should be able to run well off that. Class runner of the race.

#4 Aloft (Hickmott / Melham)
Good run 1st up over shorter trip. Has had 6 weeks between runs but stable has a habit of doing it in the past. Has solid claims.

#6 Hans Holbein (Hickmott / Mertens)
One paced 1st up then got too far back last week. Comes here on quick back-up. Two highest ratings are from races around this distance range.

#13 Crocodile Rock (Hickmott / McEvoy)
Caught on the line last start over similar distance. Should be fitter 3rd run in and does drop 6.5kgs on its past two runs.

Race 9 (1700m – Open Hcp)

#3 Amelie’s Star (Weir / Lane)
Ran well 2nd up over this trip and should strip fitter here and sit closer from inside draw.

#7 Hardham (Brideoake / Nolen)
No luck last start 1st up. Held up in straight. Better suited here out in trip.

#9 Nozomi (Freedman / Mertens)
Produced peak figure at massive odds 1st up and was sound 2nd up. Has claims.

#10 Cool Chap (Hayes & Dabernig / Williams)
Ran well 1st up for new stable. Can improve off that rating. Williams goes on. Can roll forward.

#11 Gallic Chieftain (Weir / Yendall)
Resumes off 77 day break. Should have some residual fitness. Has claims.

#12 Jacquinot Bay (Hayes & Dabernig / McEvoy)
10yo who has seen better days, but is well graded here and maps to roll forward.

#13 Mihany
Returned to form last start. Should be able to cross them here despite wide draw. Some chance.
