Moonee Valley horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:45) Dominant Cleaning BM100 (2040m)
#2 – Not Usual Glorious @ $3.40 – Bet @ Neds
The former New Zealand runner loves the wet track conditions and he has won three of his last four starts.
He comes off a win at Caulfield in fine style and he drops slightly in weight with Damien Oliver in the saddle off the inside draw.
Everything points towards another strong showing.
Race 2. (13:20) Luna Hand Care Handicap (955m)
#1 – Alpha One – Bet @ Neds
Alpha One comes off back-to-back wins in New South Wales and that form could stack up nicely in Melbourne.
The two-year-old colt battled best at Hawkesbury last start, and although he faces a much harder field, he’s clearly up to the task.
Barrier four is ideal and it could pay to follow positive betting moves.
Race 3. (13:55) Ladbrokes Mates Mode Handicap (955m)
#3 – Va Via – Bet @ Neds
Va Via comes off a trial win at Hawkesbury and that should top her off nicely for her return.
The James Cummings-trained two-year-old won her only start at Sandown before running fourth behind Ruthless Dame at Flemington.
It’s solid form for this level of racing and she could pounce fresh up.
Race 4. (14:30) Dominant Plant Power Cleaning (2040m)
#10 – Farhh Flung – Bet @ Neds
The Danny O’Brien-trained three-year-old comes off a dominant 2.3-length maiden win at Cranbourne and he’s worth sticking with.
He paid only $1.35 on that occasion and punters will get much better odds this time around. Not everything went right for him either, so it was a quality win.
Rising in distance should be right up his alley.
Race 5. (15:10) Easy Foam Hand Wash BM78 (2500m)
#6 – Mimi’s Award – Bet @ Neds
Mimi’s Award has been teasing punters with some solid efforts and we’re sticking with her once again.
The Hayes-trained four-year-old is talented at best with three wins and seven placings, including a second placing at her only Valley run.
2kg comes off her back and it could make the difference.
Race 6. (15:50) Mia Kleer Hand Sanitiser BM78 (1600m)
#5 – Good and Proper – Bet @ Neds
We haven’t seen the best of Good and Proper this season but she only needs a rise in confidence.
The daughter of Shooting to Win went close enough behind Not Usual Glorious last start and that form could be franked earlier in the day.
Punters will get value odds throughout the week.
Race 7. (16:30) Ladbrokes Handicap (1600m)
#3 – Jimmy the Bear @ $4.20 – Bet @ Neds
Jimmy the Bear is usually underrated in betting markets but he has been well-backed this time around.
The Patrick Payne-trained three-year-old was only 1.5 lengths behind the winner last start and it should be a good form race.
Take the $4.20 available as those odds could firm.
Race 8. (17:05) Ranvet T Harrison Cup BM100 (1600m)
#11 – Thought of That – Bet @ Neds
Thought of That is a slick customer on his day and he enjoys racing around The Valley.
The five-year-old son of So You Think owns a win and two placings at The Valley and he’s helped by pressing forward and kicking clear.
He handles wet conditions and odds should appeal.
Race 9. (17:40) Dominant BM70 (1200m)
#1 – Gold Spark – Bet @ Neds
Gold Spark should be another value runner for punters after finishing only 1.9 lengths behind the winner last start.
The six-year-old son of Akeed Mofeed gets a valuable 2kg off his back and he owns a win in soft track conditions.
We fancy his chances at value odds.
