Flemington Race 8: Wimmera & Murray Mallee Handicap 2500m

24/06/2016: Now that that the runner in the Queens livery Bold Sniper has broke through for his maiden win in this country we'll roll the dice here in another ordinary affair and suggest he can put two wins together. Raced right up on the pace last time and was too good for Master Of Arts over 2400m at Sandown. Master Of Arts is second selection so a repeat of that Quinella is tipped. Neither runner has raced for a month with Master Of Arts recently being trialled over the jumps to sharpen him up. Both runners draw well. Ungrateful Ellen shouldn't be too far off that pair and is a mare who has offered more than she has delivered. Drops in grade here from last start Listed placing in Adelaide. Yet to win past 1800m but has been placed both runs this distance. Only 3 wins in 23 to date is why she needs to annex another win. Ginger Boy comes off a last start hurdle placing but is more than capable on the flat and rates a genuine each way prospect in this. Has won this track and has also won this distance. Streaming By is a last start winner at Sandown over 2400m and despite rising in grade here is relatively lightly raced and may have some upside against many here who have reached their mark.

PACE COMMENTS On all exposed form it certainly looks like Survived will lead and the jumper Gingerboy to sit in his slipstream. It’s possible Bold Sniper will head Gingerboy for the B position in running and even Like A Carousel sometimes kicks up early. All told I think the pace will be solid enough for the mid fielders but I would be wary about the odds taken for the back markers. Typically in these distance races there is a relaxed few hundred metres after the initial 200-300 metres and if it is too relaxed this is where the back markers are at a disadvantage.
