5/10/2019 Flemington tips and best bets: Gilgai Stakes

Everest rivals clash

Distance 1200m
Grade Group 2
Track Rating Good 4 
Prizemoney $300,000
Class 3yo and Up, SW + P
2018 winner I Am Excited ($4.60)

This year's edition of the Gilgai Stakes has attracted two prominent Everest contenders in Santa Ana Lane and Sunlight.

Both runners will use this race as their final hit-out before tackling the Grand Final in Sydney and I expect them to have this field covered.

I lean slightly in Santa's favour due to his run-on profile, in what looks to be a fast run race with plenty of early tempo.

Sunlight has been backed in early betting and is now $2.80 after opening at $3.00. She now shares equal favoritism with Santa Ana Lane.

All other runners remain steady.

 

Horse Racing Key Runners

#1 Santa Ana Lane $2.80

Finally arrives at the races, after dodging the wet tracks in Sydney.

The Everest is the main target, however I suspect that the stable are here to win this and show that the campaign is on track.

Look for him to get well back, before storming home to collar them late. Goes on top. 

  

#4  Zoutori $6.00

Won at this track and distance last start against much weaker opposition.

Expect him to find a number of these far too sharp. Outclassed.  

 

#5 Tyzone $14

Finished off last prep strongly with an excellent second in the Stradbroke Handicap, where he was only beaten 1.75 lengths behind the smart Trekking.

First go down the Flemington straight is the query, however he does have a nice hold up and run-on profile which will suit. 

He flies under the radar and should be taken very seriously in this. One of the main hopes.     

 

#6 Vital Silver $17  

Perth visitor who is seeking east coast riches and has shown enough in the west to warrant the trip.

I just feel that he strikes a very strong race here and will be best suited in easier grade. No. 

 

#7 Sunlight $3.00 > $2.80

Gun sprinting mare who won the Group 1 Newmarket Handicap over this course and distance last prep.

She is very well placed in this race and is still on track for her Everest tilt, following the close up 3 of 15 in the Moir Stakes. 

Third-up (3:3-0-0) is perfect and screams Yes! 

Sunlight

 

#9 I Am Excited $16

Returns to defend her 2018 title, when she was very dynamic and charged home to win by a whisker. 

She showed enough first-up in the Sheraco to suggest that she has come back well and the second-up stats are good (5:2-0-1).

Will get back and be charging through late. Yes. 

I Am Excited

 

Of The Others

#12 Bella Martini put in an even effort first-up in the Hay Now at Caulfield, where she had the support in betting to suggest that she's showing something.

Watch betting and follow if the pro money comes late.
