Makybe DivaSOME would say the bookies have done some spring cleaning this Melbourne Carnival, but at least they’re joining in on the act by giving up their best bets of the day.

This Saturday they have focused on the Group 1 $1 million Emirates Stakes (1600 metres) where our bookmaker friends have given us their valued opinions.

There is a good spread of tips for Saturday’s card, especially at Flemington where the Group 1 Darley Classic is also on the menu.

They also give us their days best, value runner and the lay of the day. The bookies are prepared to lay a few quality horses which should make for interesting reading.

Join Sportsbet and if your horse finishes second in the Emirates Stakes, you get a refund of up to $100.

Bookmaker Emirates Stakes tips

WilliamHill.com.au selects Bow Creek at $4.80

“Hard to miss his Australian debut when a slashing second in the Crystal Mile. Gets a weight turnaround on the winner and has a sense of timing here. Looks the testing material.”

Sportsbet.com.au selects Rock Sturdy at $18

“Drops 7.5kgs on his last start second where he raced wide with no cover for the entire race. Drawn to come out wide which should help and has handled tracks with the sting out.”

Bet365.com.au picks Bow Creek at $4.70

“Couldn’t miss him with his solid finish into second in the Crystal Mile Last start at Moonee Valley. Can only improve on that run which was his first in Aus. Very hard to beat.”

CrownBet.com,au picks Lucky Hussler at $8

“Was a victim of the track bias at Moonee Valley, carries 58kg here but won with that weight in the Toorak. Will get back and need luck but Darren Weir is the man of the moment so expect him to be spot on.”

Days best, value runners and lay of the day

Sportsbet.com.au:

Days best – Divan ($2.80) at Flemington, Race 2
“Very progressive stayer that was fantastic in running second to The Offer last start. Think he maps to sit just behind a moderate speed and Olly does the steering.”

Value runner – Timeless Prince ($17) at Flemington, Race 9

“Has run some very good races on rain-affected tracks in NSW and Queensland. Another horse drawn out wide and will appreciate the services of Craig Newitt.”

Lay of the day – Magic Artist ($6) at Flemington, Race 7

“Even the pigeons in the grandstand at Flemington blackbooked this horse after his run on Saturday. We think the bias helped a lot and won’t get the favourable run on Saturday.”

CrownBet.com.au:

Days best – Ngarimu ($4) at Flemington, Race 4

“The win on debut at Seymour was full of merit, finished off like a good horse. Is bred to be a Group horse and this race looks the perfect next step.”

Value runner – Trade Commissioner ($31) at Flemington, Race 5

“Ciaron Maher has his team going super and despite being a while between wins, this old timer could just perform at a big price. Second up last prep ran close behind Amorino and Under The Louvre.”

Lay of the day – Lucia Valentina ($5.50) at Flemington, Race 8

“Better suited here against the mares after attempting glory at the highest level this campaign, the barrier will prove to be a major challenge and the weight will also be a big test.”

Bet365.com.au:

Days best – Reldas ($4) at Flemington, Race 9

“The step up to 1400 looks ideal after rounding the field and coming away with a solid win over the 1200 last start. Doesn’t look to be much more depth here. Look for him swooping late.”

Value runner – Imperial Lass ($15) at Flemington, Race 8

“Form hard to fault and she probably should have won by a larger margin last start and Moonee Valley. Third up last prep was third behind Winx in the Group 1 Queensland Oaks.”

Lay of the day – Ngarimu ($4.20) at Flemington, Race 4

“Looks to be a nice type but a big jump in grade from his first start maiden win at Seymour. Runs into much better quality here. Hard to entertain the $3.80.”

WilliamHill.com.au:

Days best – Better Not Blue ($4.60) at Canterbury, Race 9

“Handy performer that should be fitter for his first-up run when hitting the line well. Comes in well with the claim and loves soft tracks. Should take holding out here.”

Value runner – Inspector ($11) at Flemington, Race 5

“Impressed when stepping out to this distance range for the first time last start. On the quick back up here and appears good value at his current quote.”

Lay of the day – Dandino ($2.70) at Flemington, Race 3

“Old timer who has been racing well but hasn’t won for almost two and a half years. Up against a worthy opponent here and worth risking at his current quote.”
