Betting Strategy:

Flem R8: I'm Thunderstruck 0.5 units win

Just the one bet for me. Would have backed Lunar Flare but cannot be confident she is over her injury. I'm Thunderstruck lost the Cox Plate at the barrier draw and was valiant in defeat. Anamoe does seem to be a horse that needs to build so Flemington should suit more but I am guessing this race will not be ran at a genuine tempo. This will suit I'm Thunderstrucks turn of foot and happy to be with him at those odds.
