RACE SEVEN – MCKELL CUP

Opening at $5 in the morning and bottoming out at $4, he would jump a $4.80 chance and was popular with eachway backers.
Noted wet-tracker Wu Gok ($5.50-$7-$6) held the most money while Approach Discreet ($5.50-$5) was a noted firmer all week after opening at $10.
Yonkers ($6-$10-$8) came in form late support once double figures were on offer.

One of the more popular results at Flemington today was Express Pass in the Murray Cox Handicap (1000 metres).
A little soft early in the day going $2.90-$3.20, the late money for the
Express Pass saw it back into $2.90 at the jump.
Overall, he held nearly three times as much money as anything else.
BETS: Express Pass $2,000 @ $3, $5,000 @ $2.90, $3,500 @ $2.90
RACE SEVEN – CRESWICK STAKES
It was a blowout here with Free To Move scoring at triple figures.
One of the roughest in the field (with only The Cruiser @ $201 longer), Free To Move wasn’t fancied at all at $101 on TAB Fixed Odds.
Most of the money here was on Curran ($3.70-$3-$3.10) who was nearly twice as popular as the next best in the market, Snickerdoodledandy ($4.60).
RACE SEVEN – IPSWICH CUP
Happy Go Plucky only had light specking for the TAB Ipswich Cup (2150 metres).
Drifting from $19-$26 on the day, Happy Go Plucky was one of the least favoured runners in terms of money held.
So You Win ($4.20) was the most popular in front of Humbolt Current ($8-$4.40-$5) while In Good Health ($4.40-$3.30-$3.60) went around as favourite.
BETS: In Good Health $2,500 @ $3.40
RACE EIGHT – EYE LINER STAKES
Snitch was a quiet speck throughout the day for the running of the City of Ipswich Eye Liner Stakes (1350 metres).
The Tony Gollan-trained galloper opened the day a $9.50 chance and jumped at $8, however, it held just a fraction of the money that the favourites did.
Amish Boy ($3.50) was easily the most popular and held 40 percent of the total investment while Axe ($3.70-$3.20) was next best but held half of what that galloper did.
BETS: Snitch $1,000 e/w @ $9/$2.70
RACE NINE – GAI WATERHOUSE CLASSIC
Lillemor did the right thing by her backers by taking out a thrilling edition of the Gai Waterhouse Classic (1200 metres).
The John O’Shea-trained mare opened the day at $4.20 and bottomed out at $3.80 before jumping at her morning quote. She spoiled the move for Intrepidacious ($8.50-$6.50) which had consistent eachway support all afternoon.
Boomtown Lass ($4-$6) was a drifter but was the only horse in the race to hold six figures.
BETS: Lillemor $2,000 @ $4.20, $1,000 @ $4.20 MULTIPLE TIMES, $1,000 @ $4, $1,700 @ $3.80
BETS: Boomtown Lass $3,000 e/w @ $6.50/$2.40
