4/7/20 David Gately Flemington & Randwick Forgive Files

Flemington Racing

Racing was at FLEMINGTON on Saturday. The track went from SOFT-7 to SOFT-6 with the rail TRUE. There was no mad pattern evident, perhaps edging away from those inside lanes as the day wore on was preferred. 

Run of the Day

Thanks for voting, massive 1462 votes and SIRCCONI won with 39% of the vote from CHERRY TORTONI (32%) and the impressive HANDSPUN (19%).

Randwick Racing

In Sydney it was RANDWICK and the track was a HEAVY-9 with the rail out 4m. Many declaring on-pace bias here but I doubt there was any sinister pattern.

In all nine races at least one of the trifecta came off midfield and in one of those races the quinella sat last and second-last. Let’s say it was no DISADVANTAGE to be handy.
