Flemington Race 8: Flemington Event Staff BM90 1600m

22/07/2016: Tasmanian galloper Jerilderie Letter has the perfect 4 wins from 4 runs when racing 4th up and later and I'm expecting he keep that record intact at his 4th run into this preparation. A triple Listed winner at home, both runs on the mainland have been good and firmer track here looks a plus. Beaten by in form mare last time and should take a power of beating here. Expect sharp improvement from Refulgent who has a strong record this track and distance. Failed on heavy ground last time and expected drier track here is a big plus. Will also strip much fitter for last run after a 47 day break. Spreadeagled has let backers down at last 2 runs after winning at Sandown, but might appreciate the more expansive Flemington track. Draws the inside and looks to have genuine each way claims. Royal Rapture won over this course 2 runs back prior to an inexplicable poor effort last time out at Caulfield. Has to overcome wide draw but return to Flemington looks a plus and no surprise to see him recapture winning form. Victory Downs has won 6 from 12 including 3 of last 4 outings. Is proven this level and must rate on current form. Keep an eye on the big bets.

PACE COMMENTS In races where there is no consistent front runner we often have a problem with defining the likely leader but in this race I feel it is safe to assume my on pacers, though Lord Durante is a concern, will assume positions near the lead. This is not a difficult race for any of them to lead and on the basis of keenness early from the four prospects I am going to assume the pace will good enough for the mid fielders to make their presence felt late in the race but the get back types are another story.
