Australian Guineas Day 2012 Flemington Fields & Schedule

The elite racing action of the Melbourne Autumn Racing Carnival continues at Flemington this Saturday with the 2012 Australian Guineas Day program to feature eight top races, the highlight of course being the $750,000 Group 1 Australian Guineas (1600m).

Helmet

2012 Australian Guineas favourite Helmet is the headline horse racing at Flemington this Saturday

Due to run as Flemington Race 6 at 4:00pm (VIC), the 2012 Australian Guineas field is a cracker, a capacity number of acceptors to face off including clear Luxbet favourite Helmet.

Although defeated first-up, Helmet is well-liked in the Australian Guineas betting and if he can stay out of trouble from his barrier five draw (into four without emergencies) he may just be able to hold off his main threats including his last-start conqueror in the CS Hayes Stakes That’s The One and Crown Oaks winning filly Mosheen who has a tough ask from the extreme outside gate.

After the Australian Guineas is run and won punters have another Group race clash to bring the Flemington racing action to a close at 5:20pm, the $150,000 Group 3 PFD Food Services Stakes (1400m) where a wide-open Luxbet market is narrowly led by last weekend’s Mannerism Stakes runner-up I’m Discreet ($5).

Also on the Australian Guineas Day program punters are treated to a quadruple shot of Listed racing to get their Luxbet accounts nice and full.

The opening Flemington race and the first of the black-types runs at 12:40pm with the $100,000 Listed Streets Ice Cream Stakes (1000m).

This is followed by Race 2 the $125,000 Listed Roy Higgins Quality (2600m), a genuine staying showdown where 2012 Adelaide Cup hopefuls including Perth Cup winner Western Jewel, Drunken Sailor and Persian Star will stake their claims.

The two other Listed features are then the $100,000 VIC TAB Guaranteed $2m Quaddie (1400m) running as race five, and race seven the $100,000 Bob Hoystead Handicap (1000m).

See below for the full Australian Guineas Day fields, race times and early Luxbet favourites.
