Oaks Day at Flemington is here!
The weather looks fine, and the track will play in the good 4.
Darley Ottawa Stakes – Group 3 Set Weights. 2YO. Fillies. $200k.
Looks like a smart filly.
Won’t be going overly crazy in a field of mostly first starters
#5 YES YES TESS is the knockout play.
TCL trophy – Benchmark 70 Handicap. Fillies and Mares. $150k.
#5 CITY OF LIGHTS
Beware the Sydney raider.
Looks to have plenty of ability this mare and was ultra-impressive last time out.
Can surprise and take the next step up
Good Friday Appeal Trophy – Benchmark 80 Handicap. $150k.
Many chances in this field.
#12 GLITTER ‘N’ GOLD is an interesting placement for Lindsey Smith.
Has the ratings to give this a good old shake with the weight.
Happy to speck each-way.
#10 TOMMY is going well, will also be backing this gelding.
Inglis Bracelet – Open Set Weights & Penalties. 3YO+. Fillies and Mares. $350k.
Believe the winner will come from either #2 FOXY FRIDA or #6 CLIMBING STAR
Leaning more towards Climbing Star at the weights.
G.H. Mumm Century Stakes – Listed Set Weights & Penalties. 3YO+. $175k.
Gee, what a tough race to unpack.
Many winning chances here.
#6 GENERATION & #2 CANNONBALL are the standouts

Wide open race.
#17 VON HAUKE & #6 ROGUE ROCKER
The Bachelors Red Roses Stakes – Group 3 Set Weights & Penalties. 3YO. Fillies. $300k.
Another extremely hard race to assess.
Will be specking some roughies.
#8 INHIBITIONS & #10 ADITI
Race 8 (The Oaks)
Kennedy Oaks – Group 1 Set Weights. 3YO. Fillies. $1m.
#7 BASILINNA is an interesting runner
Flashed home late last start when running against TROPICAL SQUALL
Looks to eat up the 2500m.
#8 AETHELFLAED can upset also after flashing home behind AMAZONIAN LASS and ZARDOZI
Cirka Trophy – Benchmark 90 Handicap. 4YO+. $150k.
Will do us just fine in the get-out.
