Flemington 4B – Top pick #6, Second pick #2, Third pick #10, Fourth pick #13
#6 INNOCENT HERO has a good enough record and may well appreciate the stretchout in distance from 5 furlongs to 6 furlongs. Solid speed rider Stephen Baster is aboard and I expect a top effort from horse and rider.
#2 OLTRA FINO (NZ) has an excellent record and should have enough pace to keep up going down the straight. Drew post 1, which is usually a negative, but may have the talent to overcome the post draw.
#10 PRINCE HUSSAR has always finished in the top three placings and should get a nice trail off the speed. Has been facing softer but has the speed figures to be competitive in this spot.
#13 SALUTE TO JUDE is second off the layoff, has a lot of speed too and is ridden by talented newcomer Chad Schofield. This one does tend to tire late, however.
