Best bets for Saturday racing at Randwick & Flemington by Matt Buckland
There are two cracking race cards lined-up for punters on Saturday, with some exciting match-ups featured in both Sydney and Melbourne.
At Randwick we are currently racing on a Soft 6, with the rail in the true position for the entire circuit. Sunny, warm weather is forecast for Sydney, so the track will likely be in the Good range by Saturday. With the rail in this position, expect a fair surface.
We are on a Good 3 at Flemington, with the rail in the true position for the entire circuit. It’s been a nice sunny week so far in Melbourne but a few showers are forecast for Saturday. It doesn’t look like being enough to affect the surface however and should play fairly with every runner getting their chance.
Below are my best early tips for Randwick and Flemington. If you'd like to see all of my selections for this Saturday's meets, you can get them on my tips page.
Race 5 Tip #2 Pierata $3
Returns after a brilliant win here six weeks ago. He’s low flying as always and has never finished outside the top three over this trip. He will be just off-the-speed on the turn and will be very hard to beat.
Race 7 Tip #6 Pretty in Pink $6
A highly rated filly who was excellent in the Furious and should only improve off that effort. Look for her to be storming home late and prove too strong for them.
Race 2 Tip #7 Smart Melody $2.90
Is one to look out for having won all three starts to date and gets the chance to step up in grade here. All her wins have been on softer surfaces, but expect her to go to a new level once she hits a good track.
Race 9 Tip #15 Furrion $2.60
He’s flying having won four from five so far. His win at Geelong when first-up two weeks ago proved that he has returned in fantastic order. Will take some holding out from the good gate with only 54kgs on his back.
