ROSEHILL

RACE ONE
Punters got off on the right note in the SKY Racing Active Handicap (1500 metres) with Montefelia landing some decent investments.
The David Payne-trained runner was the second most popular runner in the race but held half of what Dancing Gidget ($3.10-$2.80-$3.10) did.
Finishing best down the centre of the track with Glen Boss in the saddle, Montefilia defeated Papal Warrior ($4.60-$5.50) and Rothenburg ($11-$9.50).
BETS: Montefilia $2,000 @ $5 TWICE, $1,000 @ $5 MULTIPLE TIMES
BETS: Dancing Gidget $2,000 @ $3.20, $1,000 @ $3.20, $1,000 @ $2.80

RACE TWO
New King was specked as early as markets opened with the confidence paying off in the Everest Carnival On Sale Handicap (1500 metres).
TAB went up $14 about the Matthew Dale runner with as much as $15 offered at one stage. A few savvy punters snapped up those quotes with bets of $1,000 e/w @ $14/$3.50 and $1,000 @ $10 being taken.
Today, $8 was on the table and with further specking he came into $7. Overpowering Frosty Rocks ($4.40) near the line, New King beat the fast-finishing Word For Word ($7) with the leader holding third.
Royal Banquet ($2.30-$2.25-$2.60) went around as the most popular runner with a tick under half the total investment.
BETS: Royal Banquet $3,560 @ $2.60, $3,500 @ $2.60, $3,000 @ $2.60 TWICE, $2,000 @ $2.60 MULTIPLE TIMES, $1,000 @ $2.60 MULTIPLE TIMES
BETS: Frosty Rocks $1,500 @ $4

RACE THREE
The TAB Highway Class 2 Plate (1800 metres) was a blowout for punters with Tavion Prince nosing out the rank outsider in a thrilling finish.
Tavion Prince ($21-$16-$19) put his nose down where it counted to beat Tuscan Light ($151) by a nose with Bajan Gold ($4.80-$6.50) close up in third.
Most of the attention here was on Group Think ($4.60), Total Recall ($4.60), Boom Gate ($10-$5.50-$7.50) and Men In Tights ($13). 
BETS: Group Think $4,000 @ $4.60
BETS: Total Recall $3,510 @ $4.60

RACE FOUR
Wandabaa ($4-$3.60) handled the going best and ran right up to the support for it in the De Bortoli Wines Handicap (1200 metres).
The Kris Lees-trained runner held the most money in the race but it was fairly competitive in the holds, with Heart Of The Oak ($2-$2.90) and Outback Diva ($3.60-$3.10-$3.20) not that far behind.
BETS: Heart Of The Oak $2,800 @ $2.90, $2,500 @ $2.90, $1,500 @ $2.90 MULTIPLE TIMES, $2,000 @ $2.80, $1,000 @ $2.80, $1,000 @ $2.70, $2,000 @ $2.60
BETS: Outback Diva $2,400 @ $3.20, $1,000 @ $3.20, $1,100 @ $3.10, $1,095 @ $3.10, $1,000 @ $3.10 MULTIPLE TIMES

RACE FIVE
Desert Path was the subject of a good push in the Clubs NSW Western Metropolitan Region Handicap (2400 metres).
The gelding was backed from $8-$5 on the day and carried some decent eachway support.
Nash Rawiller had to get everything out of the Chris Waller runner to get the better of stablemate Birth Of Venus ($11-$7.50) while the leader, Shangani Patrol ($13) ran a cheeky race out in front and battled on for third.
BETS: Desert Path $4,000 @ $5.50, $1,000 @ $5.50
BETS: Loveseat $1,640 @ $5.50, $1,000 @ $5.50, $3,570 @ $5, $5,000 @ $4.40, $1,500 @ $4
BETS: Birth Of Venus $2,000 @ $7.50

RACE SIX
Favourite backers launched into Anders and were repaid in spades after being impressive in the Schweppes Rosebud (1100 metres).
The Ciaron Maher & Dave Eustace runner was hammered throughout the afternoon and went around as one of the popular runners all day - at any track!
Going $3-$2.40, Anders gave Jason Collett a hassle free time as the pair booted clear in the straight for a comfortable win.
The son of Not A Single Doubt held approximately 55 percent of the total investment.
Ole Kirk ($7) was the second most popular while The Face ($15 on Wednesday) was the subject of a strong move late, firming into $4.40 after being $6.50. 
BETS: Anders $1,000 @ $2.90, $1,000 @ $2.80, $2,500 @ $2.40, $1,500 @ $2.40, $1,100 @ $2.40, $1,000 @ $2.40 MULTIPLE TIMES, $4,000 @ $2.35, $3,200 @ $2.35, $3,000 @ $2.35, $2,000 @ $2.35 MULTIPLE TIMES, $1,500 @ $2.35, $5,000 @ $2.30

BETS: Turncoat $1,000 @ $12
BETS: The Face $3,500 @ $6.50, $2,000 @ $4.60 TWICE, $1,000 @ $4.60

RACE SEVEN
The money was spot on in the Iron Jack Missile Stakes (1200 metres) with Eduardo able to lead throughout.
Backed from $3.20-$2.30, it was one of the best betting moves on the day for Eduardo. Such was the support for Eduardo that he was backed into favouritism.
While the Joe Pride runner was a big firmer, the exact opposite applied to Melody Belle which was $2.50 favourite in the morning but drifted out to $4.20 at the jump.
Of the others, Flit ($3.50-$4.20) was very popular with TAB customers and attracted slightly less money than Eduardo.
BETS: Eduardo $1,000 @ $3.20, $1,500 @ $3.10, $1,700 @ $3, $1,200 @ $3, $1,000 @ $3, $1,800 @ $2.80, $2,500 @ $2.40 TWICE, $2,000 @ $2.40, $1,800 @ $2.40, $5,500 @ $2.30
BETS: Melody Belle $4,000 @ $4.20, $2,000 @ $4, $1,500 @ $2.70

RACE EIGHT
Any price was a good price for Tailleur when it came to the running of the Rosehill Bowling Club Handicap (1200 metres).
One of the best supported runners on the day went around as a very hot $1.60 favourite, bottoming out at $1.55 just minutes before the jump.
TAB had $1.70 on offer in the morning but $2.30 was available when markets first opened on Wednesday.
Jumping straight to the front for Kerryn McEvoy, the James Cummings runner never looked in danger of defeat with the pair streaking away to beat Minted ($5-$7-$6.50) which came from last to fill second spot.
BETS: Tailleur $1,500 @ $1.70, $6,000 @ $1.60, $5,000 @ $1.60, $4,000 @ $1.60, $3,000 @ $1.60, $2,400 @ $1.60, $2,000 @ $1.60, $1,986 @ $1.60, $1,405 @ $1.60, $1,000 @ $1.60 MULTIPLE TIMES, $3,500 @ $1.55, $1,000 @ $1.55 MULTIPLE TIMES
BETS: Lancaster Bomber $2,000 @ $8, $2,000 x $6,000 e/w @ $8/$1.85, $1,000 @ $8
BETS: Minted $1,000 @ $7, $12,650 @ $1.65 PLACE

RACE NINE
Fender went $5-$4.60 late and proved too strong in the TAB Handicap (1200 metres).
The Brett Cavanough-trained runner was one of the most popular runners in the race along with Partners ($4.80-$4.40) while Perigord ($7.50) carried some good investments along with Valdostana ($3.80).
The final event on the card was probably the most competitive betting affair of the day at Rosehill.
BETS: Fender $5,000 @ $4.80, $1,000 @ $4.80 MULTIPLE TIMES, $2,000 @ $4.60
BETS: Partners $5,000 @ $4.20, $1,000 @ $4.20 TWICE
BETS: Perigord $4,000 @ $6
BETS: Valdostana $2,800 @ $3.80
BETS: Discharged $2,000 @ $5.50

FLEMINGTON

RACE ONE
The heavily tried South Pacific was a costly conveyance for punters in the TAB Handicap (2530 metres).
Going around with 72 percent of the total investment, South Pacific ($2.20-$1.90-$1.95) opened $2.90 on Wednesday and was smashed through multis too.
After sitting outside the leader and subsequent winner Exemplar ($7-$6.50-$7), South Pacific missed the place in a sit-sprint affair.
The winner opened $8 during the week and was the third best tried runner in the race, however, held less than 10 percent of what the fav did.
BETS: South Pacific $4,000 @ $2.20, $3,200 @ $2.20, $1,000 @ $2.20 MULTIPLE TIMES, $5,000 @ $2, $4,000 @ $2, $3,000 @ $2, $2,000 @ $2, $3,000 @ $1.95
BETS: Blandford Lad $3,610 @ $10, $2,000 @ $10

RACE TWO
Fatigues landed a nice move in the Lexus Plate (1410 metres).
The Godolphin runner was $7-$4.60 on the day and attracted strong support since 9am. Finishing best down the centre of the track, Fatigues did the job for trainer James Cummings and his backers.
Galactic Fury ($2.80) and Yes Baby Yes ($2.30-$3.10) held the lion's share of the total investment.
BETS: Fatigues $3,000 @ $4.60, $1,500 @ $4.60
BETS: Yes Baby Yes $3,100 @ $3.10, $2,000 @ $3.10, $1,300 @ $3.10
BETS: Galactic Fury $3,250 @ $2.80, $1,500 @ $2.80 TWICE, $1,400 @ $2.80

RACE THREE
Cafe Rizu was a losing result for TAB when it narrowly saluted in the Grinders Coffee Roasters Plate (1800 metres).
Going $4.40-$3.90 on the day, the Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr-trained runner was the most confidently supported galloper in the event and landed some nice bets.
Of the others, Reuber ($7.50-$10) nearly defied the drift to score while Flinders River ($2.90-$3.70) and Royal Filly ($4-$3.90-$4.20) all carried significant investment.
The winner held 31 percent of the market.
BETS: Cafe Rizu $3,000 @ $4, $2,000 e/w @ $3.90/$2
BETS: Flinders River $2,000 @ $3.70 MULTIPLE TIMES, $1,000 @ $3.60 MULTIPLE TIMES, $20,000 @ $1.95 PLACE

RACE FOUR
Tavidance did the job for favourite backers in the Seppelt Wines Trophy (1720 metres).
Giving Mick Price & Michael Kent Jnr a running double, Tavidance ($2.50-$2.25-$2.40) went around with more than four times the investment than any other runner.
Five Kingdom ($6-$6.50-$5.50) was best tried outside the winner while Winning Partner ($4-$3.90-$4.40) had plenty of admirers.
BETS: Tavidance $4,000 @ $2.40, $1,000 @ $2.40 MULTIPLE TIMES, $5,000 @ $2.30, $3,200 @ $2.25, $1,000 @ $2.25
BETS: Winning Partner $1,500 @ $3.80, $3,000 @ $3.60

RACE FIVE
Punters were once again on top in this one when Coming Around saluted in the G.H.Mumm Plate (1410 metres).
The son of Gingerbread Man held just over half the market and was three times as popular as the second pick in the market which was Laburnum ($4.20).
After leading, Laburnum couldn't hold off Coming Around ($2.60-$3) which had the sit on it throughout.
BETS: Coming Around $2,000 @ $3 MULTIPLE TIMES, $1,350 @ $3, $1,250 @ $3,  $1,000 @ $3 MULTIPLE TIMES, $1,000 @ $2.90 MULTIPLE TIMES
BETS: Reflectivity $1,000 @ $10

RACE SIX
Home Of The Brave defied a slight drift in the market to take out the Aurie's Star Handicap (1200 metres).
The James Cummings runner well supported but due to the backing for a number of other runners, went $4.40-$5 on the day.
Great Again ($3.80-$4.20) held the most money in front of Home Of The Brave and Widgee Turf ($5.50) while So Si Bon ($$7.50-$6.50) and Game Keeper ($12-$9) had admirers at the price.
BETS: Home Of The Brave $2,000 @ $5, $1,000 x $3,000 e/w @ $5/$1.85
BETS: Game Keeper $2,500 @ $9
BETS: Widgee Turf $5,000 @ $5.50, $1,000 @ $5.50, $1,000 @ $5

RACE SEVEN
The most popular runner in terms of money held proved too strong for his rivals in the Furphy Lager Trophy (2000 metres).
Skyman ($2.80-$3.60) went around with a quarter of the total investment on the race and although starting favourite, did get out in the market slightly.
Crimson Ace ($8.50-$5.50) was a decent go in the race as was Denero ($6.509-$7-$5.50).
BETS: Skyman $2,000 @ $3.60, $1,000 @ $3.60
BETS: Crimson Ace $6,000 @ $5.50
BETS: Denero $1,500 @ $5.50, $1,000 @ $5.50 MULTIPLE TIMES
BETS: Cadre Du Noir $2,000 @ $4.60, $1,000 @ $4.60

RACE EIGHT
All the big money was with Octane as punters delivered yet another blow to TAB this afternoon.
Going around as a dominant $3 favourite, Octane was three times as popular as anything else in the race and was a popular anchor leg for multi players.
Rock Prophet, which wound up second, was $17 on Wednesday and today went $7.50-$4.60.
BETS: Octane $2,000 @ $3, $2,800 @ $3, $1,500 @ $3, $1,000 @ $3 MULTIPLE TIMES, $2,000 @ $2.90 MULTIPLE TIMES, $1,677 @ $2.90, $1,000 @ $2.90 MULTIPLE TIMES

RACE NINE
Jittery Jack provided punters with a rough way to end the day at Flemington.
Jumping a $23 chance in the Rubaroc Handicap (1410 metres), Liam Riordan took the John Matheson-trained runner straight to the front and the pair were never headed.
Most of the attention here focused on Savvy Lad ($4) and Lord Markel ($5) which together held 52 percent of the total investment.
BETS: Savvy Lad $1,000 e/w @ $4.20/$1.80, $1,000 @ $4.20, $1,000 @ $4 MULTIPLE TIMES
