Horses To Follow - 3 Horses to follow from the racing at Flemington on Saturday July 8

  • Blackbookers from Winter Finals day at Flemington on Saturday July 8
Royal Symphony bolted in at Flemington

Racing was at Flemington on Saturday July 8 for the finals of the Winter Championship Series and there were a number of gallopers that produced eye-catching runs. 

Here are three to follow from the day. 

Race 4 - Taj Rossi Series Final (1600 METRES)- Anchor Bid

It was all about Royal Symphony in the Taj Rossi Series Final and the Tony McEvoy-trained galloper is the obvious horse to follow, destined for bigger and better things. Behind the unbeaten two-year-old was Anchor Bid, who ran on strongly from the back of the field to grab 2nd, beaten four lengths. The Darren Weir-trained galloper was coming off a 7th at the same venue behind Royal Symphony over 1400m a fortnight earlier and showed a clear appreciation for the step up to the 1600m. The son of High Chaparral should be better over even further ground and is one to keep an eye on later on. 

Race 8 - All Victorian Sprint Series Final (1200 METRES)- Duke Of Brunswick

The Mick Price-trained Duke Of Brunswick made his return on Saturday, finishing 2nd to Ability and showed that he is in for another winning campaign in the process. The five-year-old was held up from the 400m mark until the 150m and may have almost won the race if it were not for the bad luck. One that has been in the money in 21 of his 28 starts to date, Duke Of Brunswick is super competitive at distances between 1200m and 1400m and may even be better away from Flemington. He will be hard to beat in anything he contests this campaign, particularly if he's strikes a soft track. 

Race 9 - Silver Bowl Series Final (1600 METRES)- First Approach

The last event of the day was for the three-year-olds over the 1600m journey and it was Willi Willi that just ran down the race favourite, Urban Ruler, who carted 5.5kg more than the winner. Urban Ruler can win again but is likely to head for a spell. The one to follow may be the 3rd placegetter, First Approach, who stepped up in class for Darren Weir and ran home nicely from the back of the field. The son of New Approach endured a few hiccups earlier in the race when he was inconvenienced, while he also raced a tad greenly. His effort to run on was admirable and given the fact that he comes from a leading yard, a win at his next few starts would not surprise.
