Cranbourne R2 #9 Flamingo Flame - well bred type with a good speed pedigree by Stratum out of a Rory's Jester mare, showed signs of above average ability with a high merit trial 3rd to Mighty Ginseng at Cranbourne prior to debut in a field of 11, tried to make all at Moonee Valley on debut but wilted in the stretch to finish 4th, ran 3rd at Cranbourne last time out having 2nd career start but got back to last in a field of 5, made up good headway but obviously more effective being ridden for speed, expected to go forward here and prove hard to run down now over the 1200m especially considering it is now 3rd up from a spell at peak fitness.
