The team at Love The Punt have had a scroll through the early markets and found a couple of runners that we are happy to have an early play on.
Flemington Race 1, No. 8 Dollar For Dollar
Absolute forgive last start on the heavy 9, gets back on top of the ground here. He’s a High Chaparral gelding that the McEvoy stable have been very patient with, I think they’ve got big plans for him, he’s drawn a bit sticky, with Currie more than likely having to go back from the gate. He’ll balance up in the long Flemington straight and be hard to hold out.
Flemington Race 2, No. 1 Hell Or Highwater
I was really impressed with this girls run last start in the Leilani Final, where she was beaten a tick over 2L. Usually takes 3 or 4 runs to reach her peak, she looks like the only leader in this, if she gets an easy time on front, they’ll find her mighty hard to catch. 2/2 at the mile, looks value at $4.60.
Flemington Race 8, No. 11 Good Oh
I recon they’ve got this girls price a touch wrong, she’s come up huge odds at $19. Closed off nicely last time out, her last 100m was the best of her race, fitter now and there looks to be genuine tempo. Will have the whole Flemington straight to balance up and get through her gears. I’m happy to be on her at the price.
Randwick Race 3, No 7 Clipper
