Horse Racing Tips - Saturday, December 12th, 2020

Flemington Race 5 (Market)

This is simply a case of if (2) Fabergino turns up at her best, she wins. She’s the best horse in the race but has had an interrupted preparation. Her original target, the Moir Stakes, was over after 100m when she missed the jump, but her run in the Caulfield Sprint over 1000m was excellent when conceding weight to and running 2nd to Graff. I’m prepared to forgive last start in the VRC Sprint where she finished last, because 1200m at that elite level definitely sees her out. The 5 weeks between runs is a huge positive as she races best fresh, and her win down the straight over this distance in fast time was very good. Plenty of other good horses here but if Fabergino brings her A game, she’ll be mighty hard to beat.

Flemington Race 9 (Market)

In an open race to finish the card, two horses at big odds make appeal. The first is (16) Standoff who ran very well last start at Ballarat, actually running a faster last 400m than The Astrologist, who is a handy horse and has won a good race since. Back to Flemington is no issue at all- she ran well here as a 2yo and drawn the outside she should get every chance to build momentum down the outside. The other at big odds is (7) Uptown Lola. She steps up in grade here, but never underestimate a mare in form, and she’s flying having won her last three. She puts herself on speed and gives a kick, and at $35/9 she’s a good roughie.


(16) Standoff


Value: (7) Uptown Lola - $36 at Sportsbetting

Randwick Race 4 (Market)

Pretty keen on (8) Accountability here for Chris Waller and Tommy Berry. This horse won two straight over 1800m and 2000m, and was a huge run last start at Rosehill over 2000m, making up a stack of late ground behind (7) Significance who was able to pinch a break. Accountability gets a very nice 5.5kg weight swing on the winner for a 0.7L defeat, and the step up to 2400m looks to suit.

Randwick Race 7 (Market)

He’s one of mine, but (2) Tactical Advantage just looks a big price again. He’s going much better than the form guide would suggest but hasn’t been suited in most runs this campaign. He was held up along the inside last start in The Hunter and should’ve gone close to winning, finishing 4th to Sweet Deal. He draws better here in barrier 5 and Jmac takes the ride, which is a big positive jockey change from Andrew Gibbons.

Ascot Race 8 (Market)

Pikey isn’t riding in the last, so we’ll have to take advantage of his services in the penultimate event, because his mount (9) Midnight Blue looks exceptionally hard to beat. They opted for 3kg claimer Carleen Hefel last start, with Pike sticking with Adornment down in the weights, but the run of Midnight Blue was huge from near last, steaming home late to miss the stablemate by a nose. He drops down to 54kg here, Pike opts to ride over stablemate (3) Royal Command, who he won on last start, and I can’t see them holding out Midnight Blue late. Looks close to the best of the day anywhere in Australia.
