A full field of 16 starters will face off in Flemington Race 6 on Saturday, the $150,000 Listed VRC / CRV Winter Championship Series Final (1600m) set to take centre stage at 3:35pm.

Winter Championship betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au are currently a very tight affair with six in the field paying between $5 and $8.50 to take it out.

Narrow $5 favourite and the market mover is Henwood, Glen Boss’s mount drawn in barrier 11 but likely to jump from nine.

The John Sadler-trained Savabeel five-year-old has run fifth in both Heat 3 and Heat 6 leading up to the weekend’s final and are out to improve as they step up to the mile for the first time here.

Sadler is confident they’ll improve with more distance and rate them a top chance as they get in with 55kg.

Also at single figures are the likes Akavoroun ($6.50), of 60kg top weight The Cleaner ($7) coming off a Moonee Valley win on June 21 over the 1600m with 58kg and Leon Corsten’s Heat 3 winner  Tried And Tired ($7.50) in gate three with Nicholas Hall to ride.

With so many livewire chances and plenty of good value roughies, including the widely drawn Eximius ($16), the Races.com.au team has done the hard work for you going over the form for the below Winter Championship Final tips.


#4 Akavoroun ($6.50)

Drawn well in nine which will become seven, a perfect position for Ciaron Maher’s four-year-old who is only lightly raced with six career starts. They’ve won five of those, and run second in the other over 1500m at Moonee Valley two back, and have been progressing through the ranks this season. Last start was a win in Heat 6 by nearly a length over Kiwi raider Ringo on June 28 over 1410m. First look at the mile but that’s the only question with the rest of the form to stack up and Flemington a good track for them.


#1 The Cleaner ($7)

Mick Burles’ Tasmanian visitor will likely be right up on the pace and if they can hold their spot and keep it up over the mile with the weight is a genuine chance. The Savoire Vivre six-year-old was runner-up to Limes in the series’ opening heat over 1400m at Flemington two back before thriving when stepped up to 1600m at Moonee Valley carrying 58kg to victory on June 21. Good space between runs, barrier is wide though and weight is heavy so need to be at their best.


#12 Ringo ($7.50)

Mike Breslin-trained New Zealand raider caught the eye in their Aussie debut last start when under a length away second to Akavoroun. Have Group 2 and mile form back home in NZ, will have improved after a run down under, step up in distance will suit and get in on the 54kg minimum with Dwayne Dunn to ride from gun barrier four draw.
