FLEMINGTON

RACE ONE
The first two across the line defied betting drifts in the Cup Week Radio Trophy (1600 metres).
Mandela Effect ($3.70-$4.80 eq fav) along with Ranier ($3.60-$4.80 fav) got out in the market as support came for a few others including Good n Fast ($9.50-$7-$7.50), Hunamosa ($21-$11) and Mr Exclusive ($11-$9).
BETS: Mandela Effect $1,000 @ $3.60 TWICE
BETS: Ranier $2,500 @ $4.80, $2,000 @ $3.80, $1,748 @ $3.60

RACE TWO
It was an upset in the second event of the day with Savvy Oaks ($21-$19) getting the money for Damian Lane in the Very Special Kids Pin & Win Plate (2000 metres).
The Busuttin & Young runner was the least popular runner outside $34 shot El Don and only held a fraction of what race favourite Grinzinger Star ($3.20-$2.60-$2.90) did.
The fav was responsible for 44 percent of the money and held more than the second and third picks in Wetakemanhattan ($4.80) and Starcaster ($5) did combined.
BETS: Grinzinger Star $1,500 @ $2.90, $1,100 @ $2.90, $1,000 @ $2.90

RACE THREE
Banquo was the only horse that had any real support to knock over the favourite, Knickpoint.
The World Horse Racing Springtime Stakes (1400 metres) was dominated from a betting perspective by the Godolphin runner, which went around as a very popular $2.40 favourite. Knickpoint was four times as popular as anything else.
Banquo opened the day at $5 and jumped a clear $4.60 second pick while Regimental Band, which was also $5 earlier today, blew out to $7.50.
BETS: Banquo $2,000 @ $4.60, $1,000 @ $4.60, $1,000 @ $4.40
BETS: Hilo $2,000 @ $9.50

BETS: Mister Yu Shu $1,000 @ $23

RACE FOUR
True Self was one of the best backed runners across the country today.
The UK galloper got out to $2.10 at the jump in the Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2600 metres) after being $1.80 this morning. TAB had gone up $2.40 when the fields were released on Wednesday and she was the first horse supported.
True Self accounted for 55 percent of the total investment and was nearly four times as popular as second pick in the market, Carif ($5-$5.50).
BETS: True Self $1,200 @ $2.10, $2,500 @ $2, $2,250 @ $2, $2,000 @ $2 TWICE, $3,500 @ $1.95, $2,000 @ $1.95, $1,800 @ $1.95, $5,000 @ $1.80 PLACE, $60,000 @ $1.22 PLACE
BETS: Red Cardinal $1,000 @ $13
BETS: Carif $1,000 @ $5.50, $1,000 @ $5
BETS: Top Of The Range $2,000 @ $9

RACE FIVE
Nature Strip was $4.40-$3.70 in the Darley Sprint Classic (1200 metres) and landed some nice bets.
Despite being a firmer in betting, he was still shaded in terms of the hold by Santa Ana Lane ($2.25-$2.15-$2.25) which was nearly 10 times as popular as the winner.
In fact, Santa Ana Lane went around as one of the most popular horses in terms of hold in the country today.
Loving Gaby ($6.50) held more than the winner with only Santa Ana Lane in front of her in that regard but again, it was only a fraction of what the Anthony Freedman runner held.
BETS: Nature Strip $5,500 @ $3.80, $4,500 @ $3.80, $2,292 @ $3.80, $5,500 @ $3.70

BETS: In Her Time $1,000 @ $11
BETS: Loving Gaby $2,500 @ $6.50

RACE SIX
Oceanex had some eachway money riding on her in the TAB Matriarch Stakes (2000 metres).
She was $15-$19 on the day but attracted some good investments, however, most of the money here was with Girl Tuesday which was a big firmer.
Girl Tuesday opened up at $4 this morning and was crunched into $2.90 favourite, going around with more than twice as much money as anything else in the event.
Greysful Glamour ($9) attracted some big bets while Rondinella ($4-$5.50) was the next best backed outside the favourite.
BETS: Oceanex $500 e/w @ $18/$4.20
BETS: Rondinella $2,000 @ $6, $5,000 @ $5.50, $2,000 @ $5.50, $25,000 e/w @ $5/$1.95

RACE SEVEN
Reykjavik went back out to double figures in the Network 10 Chatham Stakes (1400 metres) after being the subject of a move early in the week.
The Lindsey Smith runner was $9.50 on Wednesday and into $6.50 this morning, however, went out to $10 at the start of the race despite going around as the fourth most popular runner in terms of money held.
Admiral's Joker was the firmer on the day after going $4.40-$3.60. Noble Boy, in a similar tale to the winner, was $10-$5 earlier in the week but jumped at $8.50 today. Iconoclasm went around as clear second pick after being backed from $4.60-$3.80.
BETS: Admirals Joker $5,000 @ $3.60, $2,000 @ $3.50
BETS: Noble Boy $2,000 @ $8 MULTIPLE TIMES
BETS: Streets Of Avalon $12,000 @ $8.50

RACE EIGHT
The big move for Magic Wand paid dividends in the Seppelt Mackinnon Stakes (2000 metres).
Aiden O'Brien's runner was $10 this morning and crunched into as low as $4.40 before getting back out to $5 late. She was a clear second pick behind race favourite Melody Belle ($3-$2.80-$3.80) which got the blows in the final half hour of betting.
Melody Belle attracted big money and was the second most popular runner of the day, anywhere, behind Santa Ana Lane.
Outside of this pair, Hartnell ($9.50) and Kings Will Dream ($10-$6.50) had their share of support as did Humidor ($10-$12) and Aristia ($26-$19).
BETS: Magic Wand $10,000 @ $4.40, $5,000 @ $4.40

RACE NINE
The final event of the day, the Seppelt Drumborg Grand Handicap (1100 metres), was a sensational betting affair with a number of horses coming in for attention.
Halvorsen was a huge drifter in betting. Opening $4.60 earlier in the week, today he went $7.50 out to $14.
Esperance and Poised To Strike jumped as equal $6.50 third picks with the latter firming from a $10 quote. Tahitian Dancer ($5.50) had backing throughout betting but it was Morrissy that was a big firmer. Today, he went $6-$3.80-$5 after being $9 on Wednesday when markets opened.
BETS: Halvorsen $500 @ $12 MULTIPLE TIMES, $500 @ $11 MULTIPLE TIMES

ROSEHILL

RACE ONE
Favourite backers got the day off to a great start in the Shopper Media Handicap (1100 metres).
Over 60 percent of the money was riding on the odds-on favourite Lucicello, which had opened at $2.15 on Wednesday prior to scratchings. Today, it was $1.65-$1.75 and went around with nearly three times the money than the second pick in the market, Invictus Salute ($4.20).
Sophiella ($8-$5.50) was specked.
BETS: Lucicello $5,000 @ $1.75, $4,000 @ $1.75, $8,000 @ $1.70, $2,200 @ $1.70

RACE TWO
The move for Hit The Target ($9-$5.50) came off in the TAB Highway Handicap (1500 metres).
Opening at $11 on Wednesday, the Stephen Jones-trained runner was clearly the most notable mover today and landed the money.
Two Wrongs Dont was the subject of a long range move which commenced earlier in the week when $18 was on offer. Today, it was solid around the $8-$8.50 mark.
Southern Appeal ($4.20-$5) held the most money in front of Acquittal ($5-$4.40-$5).

California Longbow was a losing result for TAB in the Ranvet Handicap (1800 metres).
The Peter & Paul Snowden runner went around with the most money in the race and hovered around the $6-$6.50 mark for most of the day after being $10 on Wednesday.
Pressure, $10 opening price, was the most dramatic firmer as it started $5 favourite while Falcon Island ($5.500 and Eugenes Pick ($7-$8.50-$7.50) had admirers.
BETS: California Longbow $1,000 @ $6.50, $1,000 @ $6

RACE FIVE
There was a very late push for Ready For Danger which came off in a big way in The Country Classic (2000 metres).
The Matty Dunn-trained runner was $7-$5.50 in the final five minutes of betting and was one of the best supported runners to beat the very popular Maid Of Ore ($2.25-$2.50), which got out late.
Maid Of Ore was heavily tried and went around with 56 percent of the money while Emanuela ($5-$3.80) caught the eye of punters throughout the day too.

RACE SIX
Dame Giselle caught the eye of eachway backers in the Golden Gift (1100 metres).
Although going from $11-$14 after being $9 on Wednesday, the Team Snowden runner defied the betting drift to land the cash in sensational fashion.
Tanker went around as the dominant pick with TAB customers with the $3 favourite responsible for a tick over 50 percent of the money.
Blaze A Trail ($4.80-$4.40) and See You Soon ($8-$7) had their share of support too.
BETS: Dame Giselle $1,000 @ $12
BETS: Tanker $20,000 @ $3.10, $5,100 @ $3, $10,000 @ $2.80

RACE SEVEN
Punters were clearly on top after the Hyland Race Colours Hot Danish Stakes (1400 metres).
The heavily tried Reelem In Ruby landed several large investments with the Peter and Paul Snowden runner delivering a losing result to TAB.
She was nearly three times as popular as anything else. Dyslexic ($10-$4.40-$5) firmed up dramatically throughout the day but got back out late.
BETS: Reelem In Ruby $1,035 @ $3.90, $1,000 @ $3.90, $2,500 @ $3.80

RACE EIGHT
It was an upset in the eighth with Stephan getting the money at $31 on TAB Fixed Odds.
SKY Racing's Lizzie Jelfs' had the Canberra-based galloper as her pick of the yard, however, he didn't attract a great deal of support at the price.
Trumbull was a sensational go which started on Wednesday and was $4.40 at that point. Today, he was $2.70-$2.60 and easily most popular in front of Roosevelt ($6.50) and Echo Jet ($8-$6.50-$7.50).
One TAB customer would be cursing their luck in the photo finish after riding Americana Magic ($19) to a potential collect of $72,000.
BETS: Stephan $500 @ $31, $350 x $500 e/w @ $31/$6, $300 e/w @ $31/$6, $500 @ $26
BETS: Trumbull $3,000 @ $2.80, $5,000 @ $2.60, $6,000 @ $2.50, $4,000 @ $2.50
BETS: Roosevelt $2,500 x @ $6.50/$2.10
BETS: Americana Magic $4,000 @ $18

RACE NINE
Sausedge repaid her followers in the Eden Brae Homes Handicap (1400 metres).
The Matty Dale runner was $9-$7 on the day and one of the better supported runners but she didn't hold anywhere near as much as other runners.
High Shine ($5.50) was three times as popular as the winner while Pandano ($4.80-$3.8) was backed into clear favouritism.
BETS: Sausedge $3,000 x $900 e/w @ $7.50/$2.50, $1,000 @ $7
BETS: Pandano $2,000 @ $4
BETS: High Shine $5,000 @ $5.50
