Our Black Book: Horses You Must Follow From Flemington 11/11
November 15, 2023
Our analyst has reviewed the sectional times, ratings & replays from last Saturday’s Flemington meeting & has placed four horses you must follow in our black book below.
Michael Kent Senior demonstrated his training prowess with his victory in the Matriarch Stakes with Deny Knowledge and he could also land a nice race in the weeks to come with this former English mare. She was first-up and finished third behind Watadeel over 1600 metres and the way she finished suggested she’s looking for further.
Charlotte Littlefield has a promising three-year-old gelding on her hands. If he wasn’t slow to begin and then checked early in the run he would have made the race interesting against Schwarz. That was only his third start and he is also looking for longer than 1400 metres.
She’s bursting to win a race. Great effort to come from well back on a day which played to on-pacers to finish third behind Deny Knowledge. She was only second-up and a distance further than 2000 metres will suit her.
Not much went right for her in the final race. She didn’t get a lot of galloping room until late in the race and by then the race was over. She recorded the seventh fastest last 200m for the meeting of 12 seconds.
