2017 Darley Classic: Tips and Race Preview

Going for the Stradbroke winner in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2017 Darley Classic. Impending brings in fresh form.

Not as much speed as we might expect for a race of this quality. Vega Magic and In Her Time are prominent on the far side and Redzel can control the pace on the stand side.

IMPENDING can tag Redzel throughout here. Got back and powered home first up at Randwick behind In Her Time and given that he was conceding her race fitness there we can expect to see him take the most improvement from that run. Formline looks very solid.

REDZEL won the Everest on the same day and continued his fantastic run of current form. VEGA MAGIC was very plain at Moonee Valley but he ran a cracking race behind Redzel in the Everest without any luck and his Memsie win prior was high class. Horse to beat if bouncing back to his top.

In Her Time has form around all the right horses. Run well again here.

1st – 6 Impending

2nd – 2 Redzel

3rd – 3 Vega Magic

4th – 12 In Her Time

2017 Emirates Stakes: Tips and Race Preview

Taking the Cox Plate form in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2017 Emirates Stakes. Folkswood has been very good down under and is $5 at Sportsbet.

Cliff's Edge should be keen to get moving early and lead them up with Gailo Chop and Folkswood right on his hammer. Who knows where Sir Isaac Newton will be today?

FOLKSWOOD lands in a good spot, working across from out wide, and both his runs since coming to Australia have been terrific. Best of the rest in the Cox Plate and think he can produce an even better run in this which is going to see him in the finish.

CLIFF'S EDGE has produced a couple of very smart performances from the front of late and will look to try the same here. No easy task but beaten by a very smart one last time and the time stacked up okay against the Cox Plate on the same card.

Think TOSEN STARDOM is looking for this trip now. No tempo last week went against him but he sets him up well for this. Tom Melbourne is a hope through the same race but has no interest in winning.

1st – 7 Folkswood

2nd – 15 Cliff’s Edge

3rd – 4 Tosen Stardom

4th – 6 Tom Melbourne

2017 Queen Elizabeth Stakes: Tips and Race Preview

Thinking Darren Weir has the winner in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2017 Queen Elizabeth Stakes, Gallic Chieftain Horseform has been solid at $4.40 at Sportsbet.

Grey Lion can lead with Qewy to his outside. Vengeur Masque will be up there somewhere and we should get a genuine test at the trip.

GALLIC CHIEFTAIN probably had his chance at Geelong but he was certainly strong through the line just behind Vengeur Masque and he can turn the tables in a truly run 2600m here. Gives the impression that he will not only stay but relish the extra test of stamina.

No stamina concerns with QEWY and his record in Australia demands respect. Just first up at Bendigo so should have more upside than Kiwia out of that race without wanting to rule Kiwia out entirely.

VENGEUR MASQUE backs up from last week where he backed up his Geelong win with another strong effort. Goes close again.

1st – 6 Gallic Chieftain

2nd – 1 Qewy

3rd – 3 Kiwia

4th – 4 Vengeur Masque

2017 Matriarch Stakes: Tips and Race Preview

Going for value in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2017 Matriarch Stakes, Savapinski is a chance at $7.50 at Sportsbet.

Token Of Love leads them with Savapinski, Prompt Response and Tahanee all close by. Expect a strong tempo.

SAVAPINSKI took a big step two starts back and followed it right up at the Valley last time chasing home a slick winner in good overall time. Formlines all read well here and with the stable in terrific form she makes a lot of appeal. Trip looks sure to suit now.

FALIKA is up in class but has a lovely sense of timing about her into a race that she appears to have been targetted towards all along.

HEAVENS ABOVE has the class to win it and tipping the trip suits on the back up from a sound effort last week. Prompt Response comes off the same race. Big run last week but not sure the trip is what she wants.

1st – 10 Savapinski

2nd – 6 Falika

3rd – 1 Heavens Above

4th – 2 Prompt Response

2017 Maribyrnong Plate: Tips and Race Preview

Plenty of hopes show up in the Tips and Race Preview, Bionics will be around the mark and is $5 at Sportsbet.

Agent Pippa led on debut in WA and can be prominent here with Bionics.

KING trialled up impressively and looks well above average based on what we saw there. Blinkers are on for a smart stable who have started the season on fire with their juveniles and could claim to be the best juvenile yard in the land. Big profile.

ENCRYPTION ran really well on debut and get the impression he will be much better getting to the bigger track now. Has jumped out well down the straight.

BIONICS ran well on speed on Cox Plate Day and the winner has since won again. Have to respect the formline.

1st – 6 King

2nd – 4 Encryption

3rd – 1 Bionics

4th – 3 Run Naan
