The Wolf’s best for Saturday was a good thing beaten last start. Here are Saturday’s racing tips.


Shop Til I Drop was a good thing beaten in the key lead up to this race and is well suited here at set weights and especially getting out to 2000m. The Tony and Calvin McEvoy trained mare has placed second at both runs back from an 18-month spell and should be at peak fitness now. Barend Vorster should position her back of midfield and be flying home over the top of them.

Larmier Street has to overcome the wide draw but if Jamie Kah can do that, he will take plenty of beating. Having his first start for new trainer David Jolly, he trialled most impressively at Strathalbyn in the lead up to this and looks to have returned the form that saw him win at stakes level as a two-year-old. This is more than winnable on his best form.

Platinum Invador was held up for clear running at a vital stage last start and had the breaks gone his way, could well have won. The extra trip, drop in weight and soft ground are all big positives for him. If he can get in early from the wide draw he should be right in the finish.

Flexible could have won the Group 1 Australasian Oaks with a bit of luck and she gets her chance to atone here in the Group 3 Fillies Classic. She was terrific in the Adrian Knox Stakes in Sydney prior and that form has held up well. She will just need a touch of luck from the wide draw but should be too good if she gets it.

Persan was grossly disappointing last start but if he finds anything like his best form he should be too good here and win automatic qualification into this year’s Melbourne Cup. The Maher/Eustace trained four-year-old ran fifth in last year’s race and his form prior to last start was every bit as good. From barrier four, Mick Dee should give him every chance.

Fiteuse won first up on this program last year and looks well placed to repeat the dose. The John Thompson trained mare flies fresh (First Up: 3:3-0-0) and her recent trial suggests she has come back as well as ever. She will get back in the run but by this time of day, the better going will likely be out wide.

Confidence Level: 4/5

Eduardo has gone to a new level this campaign and should prove a class above in this year’s Doomben 10,000. His first two runs this year resulted in wins at Group 2 and Group 1 level, defeating the cream of Australia’s sprinters in the process. Last start he finished third in the TJ Smith and he has trialled well since. Nash Rawiller should press forward and take all the running down. Wet ground holds no fears.

Gytrash is a superstar sprinter who should be too good in the 2021 Goodwood if he brings his best form. The Gordon Richards trained gelding comes here first up which is some query, but he has an excellent fresh record and has trialled very well in preparation for this. Jason Collett should give him the gun run from barrier four.
Recommended Price: $3.00
Confidence Level: 4/5

San Fabrizio did enough on debut at Bendigo to suggest he should be hard to beat here at Flemington. The Hawkes trained import comes off a second placing at Bendigo and given how that stable typically train their horses, he should take good improvement from that. From barrier seven and with the two kilo claim, he looks well placed.
