Spring Carnival is here and we kick off a week of great racing at Flemington with the time honoured Derby Day whilst in Sydney we see the $7.5m Golden Eagle take place at Rosehill Racecourse for the four year olds

Derby day tips and best bets

Our focus remains on Flemington and the Derby Day card, where an action packed 9 race card takes place on a Good 4 surface.

Flemington Race 2 - Great House $2.60

Last chance for entries into the Melbourne Cup and Great House looks hard to beat with the combination of James McDonald and Chris Waller teaming up to tackle the Hotham Stakes.

Both Daggy and Beaver looked through the field and kept circling back to Great House with nothing else looking likely to turn up in the race.

Back Great House to win

Flemington Race 3 - Kapalua Sunset $9.50

Was spruked as the next Winx when heading to the track last start and nothing went right on that occasion when finishing 8th in the Ethereal Stakes at Caulfield.

Before that she had won by 7 lengths when trashing a field at Kyneton and with Damien Oliver onboard as well as a solid barrier draw she should be going close and is great value at close to $10.

Back Kapalua Sunset to win

Flemington Rac 6 -  Gunstock $4.40

A lot of good chances in the race but Gunstock for the Mick Price and Michael Kent Jr stable appears to be getting better with every run and with freshness on his side looks to be going best and is a deserved favourite.

Won the lead-up race to this by nearly two lengths over 2000m on a rain affected track and with conditions set to be very similar will be right in the mix again. 

Back Gunstock to win
