Flemington Race 2 Horse Racing Betting Tips

TIME LORD - I am always wary of these unheralded Kiwi horses that arrive in Brisbane during the winter carnival. History shows that once they get a bit of Queensland winter sun on their back they can more than make their presence felt in strong company. Often their trainers like to start them off in provincial company for a soft kill and Time Lord could be an example. Trained by Richard Collett, Time Lord has only had eight career starts but has the highest official rating in the race and has placed in Group company at two of his past four starts over longer trips of 2000m and 2100m. Two starts back he was beaten narrowly in a Benchmark 75 over 1600m at Pukekohe and with 55.5kg and Michael Cahill to ride on a big track that form is good enough for this class three.

RADIANT CHOICE - Choisir three-year-old Radiant Choice will be having his third start for Armidale trainer Stirling Osland in the Allsopp Signs Class 3 Handicap (1400m) after two preparations with Hawkes Racing. It’s almost a year since Radiant Choice won a race winning a Wyong maiden in May last year with the gelding’s subsequent eight runs yielding placings at Warwick Farm twice and Hawkesbury. Osland took over the training of Radiant Choice at the start of the current preparation and there has been nothing wrong with his two runs for the new stable hitting the line strongly when a half-length fourth at Armidale resuming before again doing his best work late when less than two-lengths from the winner at Tamworth last start. The blinkers back on looks a significant gear change with two of Radiant Choice’s best runs coming with the shades on, running third at Hawkesbury over 1300m before finishing 1-1/2 lengths from the winner in a Saturday metropolitan three-year-old benchmark 71 handicap over 1400m won by Bull Market. Osland is an astute trainer and it would be no surprise to see a steward’s announcement suggesting Radiant Choice will be more forward in the run on Tuesday and could even lead. The 1400m looks perfect third-up and Radiant Choice is ready to win.

SIR MAGIC - The Angela Davies-trained Sir Magic looks well placed in the Goodwin Kenny Benchmark 65 Handicap despite being asked to shoulder 61.5kg after the 1.5kg claim for apprentice Chris Williams. A winner of four races and a genuine provincial class horse with three of the victories coming on the provincial circuit it is worth noting Sir Magic’s only start away from the provincials resulted in a four-length maiden win at Muswellbrook. Sir Magic will be second-up on Tuesday after having a chequered path in the straight at Gosford resuming and the gelding is twice a winner at the same stage of a preparation. Perfectly drawn in barrier one and back to country grade, Sir Magic looks set to give Davies her first Tamworth winner.

POINT FORWARD - Point Forward was originally with Kris Lees and won trials at Gosford and Newcastle but never made it to the races and has been moved on to Olivia Cairn’s stable. He was heavily supported at his Townsville debut but lost all chance at the start when slowly away and after that the rider showed very little interest in proceedings. Point Forward has had a three-week break since, gets a rider change in Chelsea Jokic and working on the principle of ‘where there’s smoke there’s fire’ I am prepared to give the Charge Forward three-year-old on his home track some support.

MEGA D’ORO - I tipped him last start in a Benchmark 60 and was correct in my race assessment in that they would try to replicate his successes in Victoria by setting up a big lead and defying the others to run him down. Unfortunately, over the 1560m Mega D’Oro was caught late but did hang on for third. He may find this shorter 1300m trip to his liking and the 2kg drop in weight plus the inside gate will help. Lachlan Dodds stays on and with the experience of last outing can rate him to suit. Mega D’Oro is now having his fourth run for Tracy Simmons, should be at peak fitness and if the same tactics are adopted will be hard to run down.
