The weather in Melbourne today is fine and without any rain on the radar the current Good (4) Flemington track rating looks set to stay across the afternoon.

Flemington racing gets underway at 12:20pm (AEDT) and the nine-race card continues through until the last at 5:20pm (AEDT).

Punters are in for a triple shot of Group racing for Black Caviar Lightning Day starting with Race 5 at 2:45pm (AEDT) with the three-year-old fillies facing off in the Group 3 $160,000 The Vanity (1400m).

The 2021 The Vanity field features all nine original final acceptors and the latest markets at Ladbrokes.com.au have the progressive Zou Dancer ($3) as the top elect ahead of Lindsay Park’s resuming VRC Oaks winner Personal ($4.60).

The three-year-old colts and geldings later face off in Race 7 at 4:05pm (AEDT) in the Group 3 $160,000 CS Hayes Stakes (1400m), with Grande Pope and the popular Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Aim both scratched – the latter due to an elevated temperature on Friday.

Updated CS Hayes Stakes 2021 odds online favour a win by the Caulfield Guineas runner-up Aysar ($4.60).

The meeting’s marquee race is next-up with the Group 1 $750,000 Black Caviar Lightning (1000m) running as the penultimate event on the program at 4:45pm (AEDT).

A small but class field of eight do battle in the 2021 Black Caviar Lightning, betting for which is led by Godolphin’s returning VRC Classic champ Bivouac ($2.50) and the talented Chris Waller-trained sprint star Nature Strip ($3.70).
