Free racing tips from Michael Gannon
Flemington Race 3 Tip #1 - Osbourne Bulls $3.10
Produced a career-best performance at his last start when running third in The Everest.
This is a significant drop in grade with the Godolphin gelding meeting a far inferior field this time around.
The James Cummings trained galloper has drawn perfectly in barrier 11.
Expect jockey Hugh Bowman to ride patiently near the rear of the field, before heading to the outside rail and flying over the top of them late.
Rosehill Race 2 Tip #5 - Brazilica $2.75
The Chris Waller trained filly impressed on debut with a dominant 2-length win over the 1100m at Randwick-Kensington.
She ran a nice time on a Soft track on debut and is drawn to get the perfect trail on the fence behind the leaders.
She's a high-class filly who returns to her home track, drops 1.5kg and has been well supported in early markets. Yes!
