Sullo Says – Michael Sullivan’s Tips for Stakes Day
EMIRATES STAKES TIP – LUEN YAT FOREVER – Race 6 TAB No. 14 [Flemington].
Has been a non-winner in Australia but I think the prospect of a hard track has him on his favourite surface with no weight on his back. Gets his chance to break through.
BEST BET – SKYERUSH – Race 7 TAB No. 5 [Flemington].
Loved her run on Saturday and she looks nicely in. In-form trainer and jockey combo only adds to the confidence.
BEST VALUE – OUTLANDISH LAD – Race 9 TAB No. 9 [Flemington].
Has won here and another that does his best work on firmer tracks. I think this is his best distance and he’s great each way odds.
LAY – COUNT ENCOSTA – Race 3 TAB No. 3 [Flemington].
Has only won three races in his career and always seems to flash home and catch the eye. Has an awkward barrier and think he’s a false favourite.
BEST BACKED – BAUER – Race 8 TAB No. 1 [Flemington].
Well backed in Cup all-in markets and punters are looking for some consolation. $2.30 into $2.10 with bets including one of $50,000.
