Saturday Racing Review

     Turnbull Stakes Winner Kings Will Dream


Here is a review of the weekend for our Melbourne Racing Tips and Sydney Racing Tips as we steamroll through the Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival and Sydney Spring Racing Carnivals. It was the big Turnbull Stakes Meeting at Flemington, the final Metropolitan at headquarters before Melbourne Cup Week.


We sent an email to subscribers Friday morning noting that Hearty Lass had been a duel acceptor for Moonee Valley Friday night and Saturday Flemington. Hearty Lass was a third selection tip on our Saturday Melbourne Racing Tips form sheet at Flemington and when our Expert Melbourne Racing Tips analyst Pete Brinky got wind it had been withdrawn from Flemington and was a certain starter at Moonee Valley we moved into action. She looked very well placed at the Valley and we put Hearty Lass as a 1 unit each way chance.

Pete rated Hearty Lass and duly came home with the goods to salute at the healthy price of $9.50, nearly double our rated price. Hearty Lass wasn’t the only duel acceptor to salute on the weekend as Verry Elleegant was in at Sydney and Melbourne, scratched from Melbourne and saluted in Sydney as a heavily backed $2.50 fav to rocket back into Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival calculations for the big Cups races and the Cox Plate.

We will keep an eye out on these duel acceptors as should you and a great result on the Melbourne Racing Tips Friday night for what was a precursor to a tough Saturday.


In our preamble to Saturday Racing Tips, we stated that these big race days can at times be tough with quality horses running creating multiple winning chances. We further stated to be careful on these days, bet to your Betting Bank and Staking Plan. This way if it goes against you at least you have money managed to minimise losses.

It was a tough day Flemington with a $50 pop and 3 other double figure winners making it a tough day for the punters. Sunlight ($2.15) led them up down the straight and had a solid kick at the 300m to hold off the fast finishers at bay. Surprise Baby ($2.50) was a 3 unit Best Bet a nice result. It was a big effort stepping up from the 1700m to the 2500m and winning in fine style.


The Turnball Stakes is a major feature Group 1 race for the Melbourne Racing Tips Spring Carnival. Many of the horses from this race will participate during the Carnival as we look at the runs of the main chances.

KINGS WILL DREAM amazing story snapped pelvis Cox Plate day last year nearly dies and comes out to win a Group 1 in fine style had great run and on to the Cox Plate now.
FINCHE backed up its last run very nicely had the good run throughout and really strong to the line, really strong to the post.
HARTNELL what a marvel, sat outside the pace did the bullocking work and stuck on to the line like the star that he is, having a super preparation with no luck!
MYSTIC JOURNEY got badly cluttered up and then held up in the home straight probably entitled to do more but not sacking just yet.
MR QUICKIE really bad!! Jockey too worried about Mystic Journey and the horse just didn’t stretch out at all, either something wrong or “second up syndrome” and too bad to be true.


Our Sydney Racing Tips in the Sydney Spring Racing Carnival continued with the running of the Group 1 Epsom Handicap and was ably supported by the Group 1 Metropolitan and the Group 1 Flight Stakes.

Our man Blaazing Ben Perkins had a nice day tipping 7 winners for the day. It was no surprise that it was a great day also for one of Blaazing Bens fav jockeys James McDonald.

Dealmaker ($3.50) had a nice smother back midfield the fence and some J Mac magic saw it get into the clear at the right time and prove to good. Funstar ($1.75) was too good leading all of the way in a strong effort to the line. Brutal ($5) was another nice find by Blaazing Ben and we started to see a real advantage being near the speed on this track, was VERY strong to the line first up in nice win.

We commented in our Saturday Sydney Racing Tips that is was about to be her day. And so it was with Verry Ellegant ($2.50), settled last and unleashed a very nice run to the turn and was strong to the line and defied the track bias on the day.

in the Sydney Racing Tips Epsom, Kolding ($5.50) enjoyed a nice run in the feature and proved a little to strong for the Kiwi Te Akau Shark who unleashed a big run. The last 2 winners of the day were able to travel wide with cover and get the job done, Come Play with Me ($8.50) travelled into it sneaking runs early in the straight before a really powerful finish and the last winner Signore Fox travelled into it well wide to the turn and went on to cap another nice tipping selection day for Blaazing Ben Perkins!!!


Our Melbourne Racing Tips Spring Carnival really ramps up with the 1st day of the 2 Day Caulfield Cup Racing Carnival with the running of the Group 1 Caulfield Guineas. The Caulfield Guineas is the “pinnacle” for the sprinter/miler 3yo and a set weights race run over 1600m. It really rams home the stud potential for Colts if they are able to win this one. It’s a MASSIVE day with 3 other Group 1 races on the card the Group 1 Toorak handicap over the 1600m on a set weights and penalties is really one of the top mile races in the country, the Group 1 Thousand Guineas over 1600m for the 3YO fillies and the Group 1 Ladbrokes stakes that can be used as a final hit out for any Melbourne Racing Tips Cox Plate aspirants run at WFA over the 2000m.

Not to be outdone our Sydney Racing Tips Spring Carnival sees the running of the Group 1 Spring Champions Stakes. This is Sydney’s premier distance race for the 3YO’s run at set weights over 2000m. It’s a real indicator to the possible Derby contenders as they stretch out over extra ground. The day also includes the Sydney Racing Tips Group 2 Roman Consul for the 3YO sprinters run at set weights over 1200m and to top off the massive day for the 3YO is also wees the running of the Group 2 Stan Fox stakes which is a Set weights race for the 3yo over 1500m.
