Melbourne Racing Tips Group 1 –  Newmarket Handicap

Melbourne Racing tips takes us to a sprint classic for this Saturday Racing tips with the Newmarket Handicap. The Newmarket Handicap is a Group 1 Open Handicap race held in March at Flemington racecourse during the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival. It has prize money of $1.25 million and is the major feature sprint race for the Carnival. Our Expert Melbourne Racing Tips analyst Pete Brinkywill prominently feature analysis of the Newmarket Handicap along with the other feature Group 1 race for the Super Saturday Melbourne Racing, the Australian Cup over 2000m.

The Flemington ‘Straight Six’ 1200m course is a straight track with no turns and horses with proven records at the course and distance are ones to look as strong chances. Our Expert Melbourne Racing tips analyst Pete Brinky will cast his eye over the numbers for our Melbourne Saturday Racing tips for our analysis of the Newmarket Handicap.

The Newmarket Handicap is the premier handicap sprint event held at Flemington and is run down the 1200m straight. The race has been won by many of our finest sprinters over the years such as Black Caviar (2011), Schillaci (1992) and the mighty Redkirik Warrior (2017/18). Our Melbourne Racing Tips Expert Pete Brinky famously had Redkirk Warrior as our top selection in 2017 in a brilliant win at the handsome odds of 31-1.

The Lighting Stakes and Oakleigh Plate are the lead up races as form guide for this race with the Oakleigh the most important of the two.

It is s very important when assessing the form to give the 3 year olds consideration. They generally get in with a featherweight and they have won nine of the last eighteen Newmarket Handicaps so respect is a must.

Bart Cummings is not only the Melbourne Cups King but the Newmarket King as well having won the race a record 8 times.

The winner and placegetters of the Newmarket Handicap will likely then make their way north for the riches of the Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival and suitable races such as The Galaxy over 1100m or the TJ Smith Stakes also over 1200m.
