Flemington Race 4: #7 Americain Angel @ $4.20

Despite going down by the barest of margins first-up from a four-month spell, we are happy to butter up again with the Danny O’Brien-trained Americain Angel. The four-year-old mare was only beaten a nostril by the progressive Bella Rouge, and considering she probably would have won with an extra 20m, she will appreciate that little bit extra on Saturday when she steps out over 1420m. From barrier 13, Daniel Moor will look to have her settled towards the rear of the field, which will suit her get-back-and-run-on racing pattern. With a second-up record of 3: 1-2-0 and a 5: 2-3-0 record on rain-affected ground, we know she is going to handle the occasion. The $4.20 on offer from online bookmakers for Americain Angel is a ridiculous price and one we are willing to take.

Rosehill Race 6: #11 Glittery @ $7.00

The $7 on offer with Palmerbet for Glittery is absurd. The James Cummings-trained three-year-old filly was terrific when fresh on May 18, winning well on the Kensington track when defeating Deep Romance and a dominant subsequent winner in Po Kare Kare. The daughter of Medaglia D’oro has a terrific record over 1100m, with all three of her career wins coming over this trip. Hugh Bowman can get the best out of this three-year-old as she shoots for consecutive victories.

Ipswich Race 6: #6 Coco Rox @ $3.60

Matt Dunn’s filly Coco Rox has been all over the countryside this preparation, winning at Doomben first-up before running third at Scone and Caulfield respectively. She now returns to Queensland and lines up in a very winnable race, especially if the current favourite, Uncommon James, gets scratched – which is very likely. Barrier five is going to give gun hoop Ryan Maloney every opportunity to either lead or be thereabouts on the daughter of Better Than Ready, who will now be rock-hard fit coming into the race fourth-up. She can take her record to four wins from eight starts now.

Murray Bridge Race 6: #4 Hanabi @ $2.35

Having not been seen at the races since October 9, 2021, the Phillip Stokes-trained Hanabi will only build on what she does on Saturday, but she simply looks too good for this lot. The three-year-old filly has trialled up a treat in the lead up to this, winning her two outings by 4.7 lengths and 12.8 lengths respectively. She finished second in both of her previous first-up runs in her career, but from barrier 10 and with a genuine want to lead the field up, Hanabi should be putting a space on this lot. Kayla Crowther has been aboard the Pride Of Dubai filly in both of the trials and sticks on board here, which is a massive push. The $2.35 available ia the perfect price for Hanabi in the opening leg of the quaddie.

Belmont Race 1: #1 Rumour Says @ $1.70

Sometimes, little fish are sweet, so we are more than happy to take the short price about the first horse in the race book, Rumour Says. The Luke Fernie-trained filly was an arrogant winner on debut over 1000m here at Belmont, pulling clear to win by nearly two lengths. Clint Johnston-Porter is in the saddle yet again and barrier seven allows the pair to cross over, be handy and then sprint away. She looked pretty smart when winning on debut and we expect her to now go on with it. Horse Racing Multi for June 18
