There were some pretty impressive efforts the Flemington jump outs on Friday, including a couple of Group l winners who are off to Royal Ascot. Find out down below who caught our eye the most.
Flemington- Friday, May 29, Weather Fine, Track Good.
Heat Four- Indulge (1st):
Smart filly for Danny O’Brien who made the trial watch file a couple of weeks back and she’s made it again here after a brilliant win, sitting out wide on speed before dashing clear in the straight to win under a hold. Best of the morning and she’ll be definitely winning races this time in.
Heat Eight- Zahspeed (3rd):
Handy galloper who hasn’t raced since the Autumn Classic at Caulfield behind Alpine Eagle, but he looks on track for a good winter prep after this jump out, where he attempted to lead all the way, and though beaten off late, he looked to travel beautifully and wasn’t knocked about.
Heat Nine- Spatsizi (1st):
Unraced colt for Chris Waller who made the trial watch file a couple of weeks back and he was at it again here. He sat wide on speed throughout but was under a hold from the rider and ambled to the post, winning narrowly. Looks above average and should go close to winning on debut.
Heat Fourteen- Brazen Beau (1st) and Wandjina (2nd):
Both horses are off to Royal Ascot and both will leave Australia in great form. Brazen Beau led all the way under Craig Williams and won narrowly under no pressure while Wandjina was eased to the outside fence and was niggled at by Ollie, but he responded very and closed off strongly.
