One of the final races to take place at Flemington for VRC Crown Oaks Day this afternoon is Race 8 – the $150,000 Listed Swisse Vitamins Stakes (1100m) scheduled to start at 4:45pm (AEDST).
The 2010 Swisse Vitamins Stakes field features 14 gallopers after the scratching of #5 Orbit Express, #6 Cocinero, #11 Keano, #12 Perturbo, #17 Varenna Miss and #19 The Fugitive, giving emergencies The Handsome One and Dad Knows Best a start.
Current favourite to win Race 8 at Flemington today is Avenue paying $3.90 at our preferred online bookmaker Luxbet.
Peter Moody’s classy Anabaa mare Avenue is in sensational spring form, coming into today’s race after winning back-to-back 1200m sprints at Caulfield.
Both victories were excellent and despite not having run over the Flemington straight before, her consistent form throughout her 13 race starts makes her a genuine chance today and the Races.com.au team are sticking with the favourite.

More value and bigger winning dividends can be found by getting in on the exotic markets online at Luxbet, and to help you back the right runners in your Trifectas and First Fours we have selected the three other top picks from the field.
Grand Duels is backing up from a strong win at Morphettville and their impressive form over the straight puts them right into the equation.
Mick Price’s Show A Heart six-year-old Rightfully Yours is tipped to pull off great late sectionals today and hit the line hard. They finished second to stablemate About Ready last start at Morphettville, but if you forgive this run and if they handle the straight can finish in the money.
The other runner to include in all your multiples is the Greg Eurell-trained The Handsome One, sneaking into the field after a number of other runners were withdrawn this morning.
The Handsome One is resuming racing today after a 12 week spell, but an impressive trial back in early October has caught the eye of punters and the Shamardal four-year-old should be able to get right up there in this especially with wet track form.
