Moonee Valley horse racing tips
Race 1. (17:30) MVRC Membership On Sale BM64 (1200m)
#3 – Passionate Lass @ $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Passionate Lass made a good start to her career with a win at Mornington. The Hawkes-trained filly scored by 1.8 lengths against a capable maiden field.
The daughter of Sebring showed good form at the trials prior to her debut run, so it was good to see her put it all together.
Drawing barrier two is ideal and Craig Williams takes the ride.
Race 2. (18:00) Renew Your Membership Maiden (1600m)
#9 – Mimi’s Award @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lindsay Park lines up the three-year-old filly that finished second on debut behind Vibrant Glider at Pakenham.
The daughter of Shamus Award is much shorter in the betting her debut run, and punters will likely to come for her throughout the week.
She only needs a touch of luck from the draw.
Race 3. (18:30) MVRC Club 100 Membership BM64 (1600m)
#4 – Rolls @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Rolls continues to give punters a headache, but we’re sticking with the four-year-old gelding.
He has finished second at his last two starts and although beaten, he hasn’t done much wrong in the run.
We are hoping he doesn’t find one better here, as punters are getting odds worth taking.
Race 4. (19:00) Ladbrokes 55 Second Challenge BM78 (955m)
#5 – Meteorite @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Returning to Moonee Valley will help the three-time winner and two of those wins have come on this track.
The McEvoy-trained son of Deep Field scored by five lengths over this distance three back, which was then backed up at Sale.
Running fourth at Flemington is a good form guide and he should be tough to hold out.
Race 5. (19:30) MVRC Corporate Membership C1 (1200m)
#2 – Helavabel @ $9.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Helavabel was a shade disappointing at Sandown last start but his form prior was impressive.
The Greg Eurell-trained four-year-old looked good winning on debut at Mornington before running third on this track.
Punters are getting value odds and with Damien Oliver riding, he could find a spot from the draw.
Race 6. (20:00) Heartkids Hero BM70 (1600m)
#8 – Tragic @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Tragic has been living up to her name after posting five consecutive placings heading into this race.
Despite the lack of winning form, the Freedman-trained mare is more than capable of taking out this race. She gets the inside draw and 2kg off her back, so there won’t be any excuses.
The mile suits and punters have come for her throughout the week.
Race 7. (20:30) Seppelt Wines BM78 (2040m)
#2 – Thought of That @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
It wasn’t long ago when Thought of That was running at shorter odds in much stronger fields. Despite a lack of recent winning form, he should have every chance to win.
The son of So You Think is a winner of almost $300,000, which shows the strength of races he has competed in.
He is likely to roll forward from the draw and give them something to catch.
Race 8. (21:00) Ladbrokes Blended Multi BM64 (1000m)
#11 – Vowmaster @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The debut win of Vowmaster was impressive and he is a gelding that could be worth following this season.
Trained by Chris Waller, the son of Written Tycoon won by 1.8 lengths at Kyneton and he had plenty in hand at the line.
Drawing barrier four is ideal and having a strong rider in the saddle helps.
