Stats what I'm talking about - Flemington

In the past three years Craig Williams is striking at 37.14 per cent on two-year-olds starting $5 or shorter in the betting.

Williams rides Sun City ($4.20) in the first two-year-old race in Victoria this season and it will be worth keeping an eye on how the market assesses his chances late in the betting.

Excluding four victories on Winx, Hugh Bowman is 1/44 on horses starting $5 or shorter in Victoria in the past two years.

Winx ($1.16) aside, Bowman has the key rides of Ranier ($2.70) in Race 2 and Invincibella ($4.80) in Race 9 at Flemington on Saturday.

From 28 rides at Flemington on horses starting $10 or shorter, John Allen has ridden one winner.

Allen has a great book of rides including key chances Crack Me Up ($6), Extra Brut ($5.50) and Verry Elleegant ($4).

In the past 12 months Leon and Troy Corstens have trained one winner from 20 starters at Flemington.

Team Corstens will saddle two runners on their home track on Saturday with Thunderdome ($10) in Race 4 and Mamzelle Tess ($61) in Race 9.

It has been 1274 days since Winx was last beaten by Gust Of Wind in the 2015 ATC Oaks.

Chris Waller's champion mare is the $1.16 favourite in Saturday's feature Turnbull Stakes.

In the past three years John P. Thompson has trained one winner from 33 starters in Victoria.

That victory was First Seal's triumph in the 2016 Tristarc Stakes at Caulfield. Thompson saddles key chance Dreamforce ($6) in the Gilgai Stakes.

In the past 12 months Glyn Schofield is striking at 52.38 per cent on horses starting shorter than $3 on metropolitan tracks.

Schofield rides the favourite Avilius ($2.20) in the Group 3 The Bart Cummings (2500m).

In the past 12 months Darren Weir is striking at 41.93 per cent at Flemington with horses starting shorter than $5.

Weir has key chances Plein Ceil ($4.60, R3), Savoie ($3, R4), Amphitrite ($3.50, R8) and Verry Elleegant ($4, R8) at Flemington on Saturday.

In the past 12 months Team Hawkes has trained two winners from 33 starters at Flemington.
