The weather in Melbourne today is fine and sunny ahead of next week’s predicted rain meaning there is unlikely to be any change to the current Good (4) Flemington track rating.

Flemington racing gets underway on Super Saturday with the Group 3 Thoroughbred Breeders Stakes (1200m) at 12:35pm (AEDT) where #12 Winnertakesitall (5), #13 Habeebati (2) and #15 La Danseuse Rouge (14) come out off the two-year-old fillies’ showdown.

The action continues at 1:10pm (AEDT) with the Group 3 Matron Stakes (1600m) for the mares and #2 Yes Baby Yes (1) and #7 Promise Of Success (5) are both out in favour of a run in Sydney’s Group 1 Coolmore Classic (1500m) this afternoon.

There’s a quality field of two-year-olds engaged in the Group 2 VRC Sires’ Produce Stakes at 2:20pm (AEDT) where betting at Ladbrokes.com.au has the rails-drawn Sir Bailey as the narrow favourite.

The three-year-old fillies with an eye on bigger upcoming races in Sydney are next in the other Group 2 support act, the 2022 Kewney Stakes field down to 10 with #8 Pretty Amazing (11) out and markets led by the progressive Argentia.

There’s a double-shot of elite level racing on the program of course and the first is the Group 1 $1.5 million Newmarket Handicap (1200m) down the famous straight at 3:40pm (AEDT).

The 2022 Newmarket Handicap field has 17 hopeful sprinters and markets are a two-horse affair between last start Black Caviar Lightning winner Home Affairs and fellow and the John O’Shea-trained Lost And Running.

The weight-for-age Group 1 $1.5 million Australian Cup (2000m) is slated for Flemington Race 7 at 4:20pm (AEDT) and features an equally top-class field led by the ultra-consistent Think It Over.

The last of the Group status races and penultimate event on the card is the Group 3 Shaftesbury Avenue Handicap (1400m) at 5:00pm (AEDT) and #2  Groundswell (9) and #8 Aim (6) have come out.

See below for the complete Flemington Super Saturday race program and scratchings before heading to Ladbrokes.com.au for the autumn’s top racing odds and offers.
