Flemington will be hot and dry. With the rail +7m I expect it to play fair and tempo will be a bigger factor then genuine bias. If you missed Peter Ellis speak on racing.com about track bias, it’s a must watch piece of content so view it here.

Flemington R7 | March Stakes | 1400m Hcp | 4:30pm 

Mask Of Time jumps off the page here. A 4yo European import in his second preparation for Aaron Purcell who ran within 2.2 lengths of Tosen Stardom in last years Group 1 Toorak Handicap over a mile at Caulfield.

Will roll forward for Ben Melham with the big Flemington track more likely to suit him. The favourite Theanswermyfriend trialled well but has glue on shoes. Nozomi was good over this track and distance last start but looking at it’s best figure its every chance to now be wanting further with only two weeks between runs.

Wyndspelle is a forgive from the G1 Futurity Stakes when a mile out of her ground. Blinkers first time might be a last gasp hope to switch her on and the market is likely to risk her but wouldn’t shock me. Overshare has a nice set up three weeks between runs rising to 1400m on the minimum. If aggressive from Barrier 1 and can run out the distance deserves to stay hard in the market. Big if the 1400m question though. Rising Red looks a Flemington horse and trialled well, just not sure he’ll be sharp enough at this trip and look for him out to 2000m.
