Moonee Valley horse racing tips
Race 1. (18:30) Fisher & Paykel Maiden (1200m)
#7 – Nerone – Bet Now
James Cummings lines up the three-year-old colt which has been around the mark throughout his career.
He has had three starts for three placings and it doesn’t often take long for Godolphin runners to break their maiden status.
Gets the inside draw and a senior rider in the saddle.
Race 2. (19:00) Crown Resorts BM64 (1600m)
#6 – Tragic – Bet Now
Tragic is another Godolphin runner, this time trained by the in-form Anthony Cummings.
The three-year-old filly is dropping back in grade after running eighth behind I Am Eloquent at Caulfield last start.
Form out of that race looks likely to stack up well this season and she should be able to put her best foot forward against this opposition.
Race 3. (19:30) Dynamic Print BM78 (3000m)
#6 – Da Deputy – Bet Now
Da Deputy was a gallant winner over 3800m last time out and dropping back in distance shouldn’t be a concern.
The Lindsay Park-trained stayer has been given a soft barrier trial for this and drawing barrier three will ensure a soft run throughout.
Should be paying each-way odds in an even field.
Race 4. (20:00) BNCA Pink Lady BM70 (2040m)
#4 – Saddle The Sun – Bet Now
Punters have been patient with Saddle The Sun this season and he could reward those loyal punters this Friday.
The Matt Cumani-trained six-year-old won his first three races before suffering an injury. He hasn’t come back the same horse, but he was always going to need more time.
With four runs under his belt this preparation, he has fitness under his belt and could return to the form of old.
Worth backing for at least one more start.
Race 5. (20:30) Ladbrokes 55 Second Challenge (955m)
#13 – Peak – Bet Now
Peak looked good winning at Newcastle over 900m last start and the extra distance is going to help his chances.
The Team Hawkes-trained three-year-old scored by 1.5 lengths early last month and he looks to have a nice career in the making.
Drawing barrier 10 makes it tough, but he has speed outside of him and he could dictate the pace here.
Nice chance in an even field.
Race 6. (21:00) Blossom Rose Cider BM78 (1600m)
#2 – Aristocratic Miss – Bet Now
Aristocratic Miss has form behind some quality types and that appears to be good form for this.
The McEvoy-trained four-year-old ran third at Caulfield behind Shared Ambition last start and she has form behind Rox The Castle, Tavirun and Fabric.
She doesn’t win all that often with only three wins from 25 starts but she’s the clear class runner of this field.
Race 7. (21:30) Pink Lady Coffee BM64 (1200m)
#9 – Three Beans – Bet Now
Team Hawkes lines up the three-year-old colt which was too good for them on debut at Ballarat.
He was the $1.50 favourite to win on debut when scoring by 1.5 lengths and he was quickly spelled following that win.
That’s always a good sign and the son of Deep Field has found a winnable race upon return.
It’s good to see Dwayne Dunn in the saddle as he rides The Valley well.
Race 8. (22:00) Piper-Heidsieck Bm70 (1000m)
#13 – Can’tforgetyou – Bet Now
Can’tforgetyou resumed with a good win at Mornington and she looks a good chance of going back-to-back.
The Andrew Noblet-trained mare scored by 2.3 lengths after storming home down the outside and a repeat would take her close.
That echoed her first two starts where she settled back and ran home nicely. It’s a good sign of things to come so include her at each-way odds.
