BEST BET – DECORATED SOLDIER (FLEMINGTON – Race 2 No 5): The Key – under-rated Sydney-trained horses heading to Melbourne to compete against over-rated Victorians. Decorated Soldier was sharp winning on debut at Beaumont then tackled a strong line-up at Canterbury when right on the heels of the placegetters. The second and third horses are competing at Randwick but Peter and Paul Snowden have opted to head south and the 1400m around Flemington looks ideal. Shopping $4.60!
BEST BET – ULMANN (FLEMINGTON – Race 5 No 6) : Should be right at his top now and he was a dominant winner last start. Find himself in a similar race, and will drop 3kg after the claim. Well placed and at his peak. $3.50
