Flemington Quaddie Preview

Track/Weather – Rail has gone out 9m. Track should play fair.

Race 6

#3 Murphy’s Reward (D. & B.Hayes & T.Dabernig / S.M.Thornton)
Returned from spell in career best form. Drawn out wide which may be an advantage.

#5 Leodoro (M.C.Kent E.Brown)
Racing well this prep. Steps out to 1200m, suits better.

#6 Handsome Thief (IRE) (D.K.Weir / C.Williams)
Good thing beaten first up. Can improve here.

#9 King River (J.W.Price / D.Oliver)
Two runs back form along spell. No luck last start. Can improve dramatically here.

#11 Sheriff John Stone (A.J.Purcell / B.Stockdale)
Good win at big odds last start. Has run well down the straight in the past.

#12 Tykiato (J.W.Price / M.J.Dee)
Racing consistently. Should be there abouts.

#13 Just Hifalutin (E.Jusufovic / B.E.Thompson)
Unlucky over further last start. Comes back in trip to distance that has a good record over. Will be strong late.

#15 Manolo Blahniq (NZ) (A.W.Noonan / B.Allen)
Racing well without winning. Drop signifcantly in weight here.

Race 7

#4 Nature Strip (R.Hickmott / R.Maloney)
Resumed off short break with rating that would’ve made it competitive in a group 1. If returns a similar figure here it will be far too strong.

Race 8

Field

#1 Flamberge (M.Ellerton & S.Zahra / D.M.Lane)
Old timer resuming. Was a terrific horse fresh in the past. Market will be the guide.

#2 Amber Sky (M.Ellerton & S.Zahra / M.J.Zahra)
Former HK galloper. Resumes here off long break. Has trialled well leading into this.

#3 Lord of the Sky (R.E.Laing / B.J.Melham)
Enigmatic galloper that won first up. Comes back in distance here. Has good claims if the right ride turns up.

#4 Saracino (NZ) (M.D.Moroney / D.Oliver)
Won dwon the straight as a 3yo. Best form clearly good enough here. May not have come up in the spring. Has trialled well leading into this.

#5 Thermal Current (D.K.Weir / C.Williams)
Consitent type, on a quick backup. Never in the right part of track last week. Can bounce back here.

#6 Husson Eagle (P.Payne / B.Allen)
First up here. Did win first up last prep. Has run well down the straight in the past.

#7 Rock ‘n’ Gold (M.Ellerton & S.Zahra / C.D.Symons)
Had freshen up since last run. Has claims here.

#8 Itz Invincible (M.Seyers / P.Gatt)
Adelaide galloper who has good record over this trip. Has claims here.

Race 9

#3 Wise Hero (J.W.Price S.M.Thornton)
Led and dictated race first run this distance. May get similar run here.

#6 Curragh (NZ) (T.Busuttin & N.Young / M.J.Zahra)
Resumes here, unbeated first up in the past.

#8 Star Stealer (D.K.Weir / J.M.Allen)
Absolutely walked in last start producing massive spike. Expect rating to drop here but still expect to be competitive here.

#10 Malaise (J.Cummings / D.M.Lane)
Ran on nicely last start over this distance. Did produce peak career rating at this distance.

#11 Toy Boy (G.Eurell / N.Beriman)
Had excuses last start. Previous runs are good. First run this trip.

#12 The Avenger (C.J.Waller / D.Oliver)
Hit line good first run in Victoria. Should be competitive here.
