There are two quality night meetings to bet on this Friday night with racing from Moonee Valley and Canterbury.
We have done the research to find our best tips across both venues and it should be a great evening of racing action.
Moonee Valley free tips & form
Race 1. (18:30) Schweppes We Get Golf Maiden (1000m)
#8 – Loving Gaby @ $2.80 – BET NOW
The Maher/Eustace-trained two-year-old looked pretty good at the trials and there has been solid support for her in the betting.
She’s a filly by I Am Invincible who is bred for speed and after opening at $3.80, she has already tumbled into $2.80.
That’s a fair move for a debutante and money could do the talking here.
Race 2. (19:00) Salsas Fresh Mex Maiden (1200m)
#8 – Sequitur @ $2.50 – BET NOW
Another runner on which has been well backed in the early betting markets. The three-year-old filly which ran second behind Alexandra Dreaming has a good form guide to go on and the inside draw won’t hurt its chances.
She opened at $2.90 and has firmed nicely into $2.50, which is a respectable move in the betting and one worth following later in the week.
Race 5. (20:30) Ladbrokes 55 Second Challenge BM78 (955m)
#3 – Crown Witness @ $2.65 – BET NOW
Showed plenty of speed when winning her first three starts and although her form went off the boil a touch, she has the class to run a quick time here.
The Henry Dwyer-trained mare by Star Witness ran fourth behind Formality in a tough race two back and although she hasn’t been seen since November, she should be able to hit the ground running.
Inside is key for the 55 Second Challenge so put her on top at solid odds.
Race 7. (21:30) Schweppes Stayers Series BM70 (2040m)
#12 – Mosh Music @ $4.20 – BET NOW
Four-year-old mare which scored consecutive wins at Geelong before running a solid third at Sandown last time out.
The well-regarded daughter of Moshe has a tricky draw of 11 to jump from but that shouldn’t matter too much over this distance and she should enjoy the rise in distance.
Punters are getting good each-way odds.
Race 8. (22:00) Adapt Australia BM64 (1200m)
#9 – Age of Chivalry @ $3.20 – BET NOW
Three-year-old He’s Remarkable gelding which broke through for the win last time out at Sandown by 1.8 lengths.
He was strong to the line and it suggested more wins would be in store for the talented type, which says at the 1200m after pushing out to 1412m at Geelong when running fourth.
Drawn to get a nice drag into the race.
Canterbury free tips and form
Race 1. (18:15) Tab Rewards Maiden (1550m)
#2 – Tactical Formation @ $5 – BET NOW
Nice each-way money on offer for the Gerald Ryan-trained gelding which has been around the mark in six of his eight career starts.
The son of Mossman is coming off a second placing at Warwick Farm behind Belladeel and prior to that he showed form behind the likes of The Fire Trap and Temeyez.
This is an even field but he’s a value runner.
Race 3. (19:15) The Agency Real Estate BM70 (1550m)
#5 – Judge Judi @ $2.40 – BET NOW
This was a tough decision between Judge Judi and Navigator but the market told us everything we need to know.
The Kim Waugh-trained mare was a tough and classy winner at Gosford last start and she should be able to build on that. That came after almost scoring an upset win at Kembla Grange, which was a nice pipe opener.
Drawn well and should be tough to beat.
Race 4. (19:45) Canterbury Night Sprint BM72 (1100m)
#3 – Tonsor @ $2.30 – BET NOW
Matthew Smith lines up the lightly-tried five-year-old which has finished in the first three in all four starts and he’s coming off a close second placing at Warwick Farm.
The son Redoute’s Choice scored a recent trial win by 2.3 lengths to prepare for this and the royally-bred gelding could be simply too strong for them here.
Race 6. (20:45) Kia Evening Star BM72 (1250m)
#2 – Safado @ $1.65 – BET NOW
Punters are going to have to take the shorts on offer here but they look safe. The four-year-old son of Lonhro was a two-length winner at Gosford last start and his only defeat to date was a close second placing behind Resin.
He scored by 3.3 lengths on debut at Hawkesbury and we’re expecting something similar in this and he looks the goods.
