THE BEST BET
One other Greenback (race three), the Queensland Oaks runner-up to Youngstar final season, resumed with an excellent fourth to Greatest Of Days at Randwick earlier this month. The 1400m was too brief for this promising mare however she closed her race off strongly. She might be improved by the run and is suited at 1600m. Drawn the within gate and will get the correct run – she simply wants a bit of luck from the flip.
Eawase (race 9) created an enormous impression late final season profitable successive races at Randwick and Doomben, the latter a dominant effort at stakes degree. She is resuming right here off an easy trial and has drawn out large. She is going to settle again early however she finishes her races off very strongly. Good each-way probability.
R4: THE SHORTS (1100m)
Peter Snowden (coach) Redzel: “It is difficult to win all the time but a horse like him, while he’s not a Winx, he’s very genuine. He tries so hard every time he goes out. He handles it wet and dry, good gates and bad gates, the variables that stop other horses.’’
Sally Snow (TAB): “The excitement is certainly building, with four Everest contenders lining up here. Whilst English has to be respected, I have to stick with Redzel who looks to have race conditions to suit and will have improved witness wise from its dominant first up win. Suspect it will hold favouritism in the Everest market after this race.’’
Glenn Munsie (TAB): “This races sets up beautifully for Winx with Religify, It’s Somewhat, Le Romain and even Ace High setting up for her to stalk, ease to the centre of the track and blow them away from the 250m. Sit back & watch in amazement. Stablemates to follow her home with Egg Tart next. Watch the old boy Who Shot Thebarman run a race!’’
Grant Palmer (bookie): “Redzel was terrific first-up and maps to get the same run here. Closest rival in the betting is Invincible Star who I can’t see turning the tables on him. English is the best of the rest but has been unplaced the past two years in the same race.’’

R6: GEORGE MAIN STAKES (1600m)

Sit again and watch in amazement. Stablemates to comply with her house with Egg Tart subsequent. Watch the previous boy Who Shot Thebarman run a race!’’
Grant Palmer (bookie): “Appears to be a procession for the good mare Winx. Unforgotten and Le Romain will look to battle out second place and I’m excited to see the return on Who Shot Thebarman who seemed nice on the trials.’’
Blake Johnston (bookie): “Winx is as soon as once more the one to beat. She is the most effective I’ve seen and at wfa there isn’t any purpose to go towards her. Egg Tart might be the quinella horse.’’
Terry Kennedy (Sky Sports activities Radio): “It’s arduous to think about, however Winx is best than ever and can make it 27 consecutive wins. To make a quid, go to the Winx out market and take the beneficiant odds on supply Unforgotten.’’
R7: MAKYBE DIVA STAKES (1600m)
James Cummings (coach) Kementari: “He’s the fittest he’s been this marketing campaign and his work on Tuesday morning mirrored that. His gallop on the course correct at Flemington was what I needed to see, he’s tightened up properly. He picked up properly from the six furlongs and was filled with operating on the road, suggesting to me that he’s coped properly together with his very spectacular Memsie Stakes run. Because the Caulfield race he’s been actually shiny.’’
Sally Snow (TAB): “The place to look! In some of the aggressive betting races of the day I’m completely satisfied to be play bookie this race, the place you might make a robust case for over half the sector. If I needed to tip one on prime it will be Kementari after flying house final begin within the Memsie two weeks again. It has the category edge on these and Craig Williams ought to place it completely within the run and be too good late.’’
Glenn Munsie (TAB): “Half the sector comes out of the Memsie however we get to Flemington which might see some enhance dramatically. A type of is Grunt. Like to see him ridden positively and put himself again there as a critical carnival horse. Stretching to 1600m will assist him as nicely. Like the very fact we’re getting double figures as nicely. Humidor is one other Flemington lover with a gentle draw.’’
Grant Palmer (bookie): “I’m sticking with Completely satisfied Clapper. He was solely truthful within the Memsie however I feel his type is rather more suited to Flemington and will take enchancment second up. He completed lower than a size behind Winx second up final prep and repeat of that may see him win this.’’
Blake Johnston (bookie): “Kementari seems to be the one to beat after his close to Group 1 win within the Memsie after sitting extensive with no cowl. He can be higher suited at Flemington and appears exhausting to beat.’’
Terry Kennedy (Sky Sports activities Radio): “Completely satisfied Clapper was ‘not so happy’ at Caulfield however I’m tipping he’ll leap out of the bottom right here, he’s a superb second-up horse and can love the large surrounds of Flemington.
