Moonee Valley horse racing tips

Race 1. (11:55) Quentin Wallace Handicap (1000m)

#1 – Epic Proportions @ $6

tradiebetLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

Epic Proportions didn’t lose any admirers with another second placing last start, so we’re taking the odds.

The three-year-old has yet to finish worse than second from three starts, and having experience at this track is ideal.

$6 is an excellent price.

Race 2. (12:25) James Miller BM70 (1000m)

#9 – Roussillon @ $3.20

tradiebetLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

James Cummings lines up the three-year-old who won well at Gosford two back before finishing sixth at The Valley.

The son of Exceed and Excel wasn’t far behind Title Fighter and Epic Proportions, so use the opening race as a good guide.

Barrier five is ideal, so put him on top.

Race 3. (13:00) Frances Gibson BM78 (1600m)

#6 – Pitchanun @ $6

tradiebetLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

Pitchanun was good enough to win consecutive races earlier this preparation, which is a good form guide.

The six-year-old mare loves running at The Valley, with six starts for a win and four minor placings.

We expect her odds to shorten on race day, so take the value available.

Race 4. (13:35) Maureen Salter BM70 (1600m)

#11 – Okay Cupid @ $4.60

tradiebetLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

Okay Cupid looked good winning his last two starts, including wins at Geelong and Sandown.

The four-year-old defeated a handy midweek type last start, and although meeting a stronger field here, it has more upside.

Barrier four is ideal and he should be strong to the line.

Race 5. (14:10) Gwenda Fitzgerald BM84 (1200m)

#1 – Recommendation @ $2.40

picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET500'Check Offers
tradiebetLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

Our recommendation is to back Recommendation, who ended last prep with wins at Canterbury and Sandown.

The Maher/Eustace-trained gelding by Shalaa won narrowly last start before heading for a spell, which should have strengthened it up nicely.

1.5kg comes off his back to help with the weight.

Race 6. (14:45) Ladbrokes R.C. Challenger BM70 (2040m)

#2 – Wascaly @ $5

betrLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

tradiebetLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

Wascaly didn’t have all favours when running sixth at Sandown fresh up, but punters should expect a better run.

The six-year-old looked good when winning at Benalla, and although this is a much harder race, it looks to have good upside.

Take the each-way odds in an even race.

Race 7. (15:20) Xtreme Freight BM100 (2040m)

#1 – Floating Artist @ $4

tradiebetLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

Floating Artist is taking his sweet time to get back into the winners’ circle, but we’re sticking with him for one more run.

The eight-year-old stayer ran fifth at Flemington behind Young Werther last start, but Moonee Valley has been a better hunting ground.

He gets some weight relief, so put him on top.

Race 8. (15:55) Ladbrokes Odds Surge BM78 (2500m)

#5 – Mathew @ $4.80

tradiebetLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

Mathew is already a two-time winner this preparation and he’s good enough to add another.

The five-year-old son of Tavistock scored easily at Sale last time out, which shapes as a good form guide for Saturday.

Punters get each-way odds to snap up.

Race 9. (16:35) Steveos Scamper BM100 (1000m)

#4 – Omni Man @ $2.60

betrLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

tradiebetLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

Omni Man gripped on for victory last time out at Rosehill, but he’s going to love racing at The Valley.

He showed blistering barrier speed, which is always a positive around this track, and with seven wins from 13 starts, he demands respect.

Getting the inside draw is just another positive.

Race 10. (17:10) Ladbroke It BM70 (1200m)

#10 – Helix @ $3.40

betrLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

tradiebetLogin to View Offers!Check Offers

Helix won on debut at Pakenham before placing at Pakenham and Sandown.

The four-year-old son of Flying Artie was only a length behind a smart type last start, which should be a good form guide.

Barrier two is ideal and the odds appeal.
