Moonee Valley Markets R1 – 8

R1 Cox Plate Charity Pin Mdn | 1600m | 6:30pm

This is a low standard race with plenty of winning chances. Heather Honey presents with the best profile though after a particularly good run last time when she made up good ground from back in the field against a slow pace bias. A good draw up to 1600m allows her to settle a little closer here.

Bullish Stock has been very consistent this preparation, producing a string of solid ratings that give him an edge over this field, including last start over this track and distance. From Barrier 4 he looks likely to get an ideal run just off the pace.

R4 Stud/Stable Staff Awards BM64 | 1000m | 8:00pm

Brugal Reward comes off a solid second at Sandown (1000m) first up last start with a rating that is right in the competitive zone for this. The key is that she has scope to improve significantly from that mark towards ratings from two runs over this distance last preparation that put her comfortably on top of this field.

R5 Inglis 55 Second Chall HT BM70 | 955| 8:30pm

Patient comes off an impressive debut win at Echuca over 1000m last start which returned slick figures and a big margin spread behind to endorse the quality. That’s the best form heading into this race and after just one start she still has plenty of scope to improve.

R6 McMahon’s Dairy BM64 | 1600m | 9:00pm

This is a competitive race with plenty of chances, but Vantaggio comes off two rock solid performance this preparation with ratings that make a rightful top pick. The step up to 1600m, blinkers for the first time and C Maher’s ability to continue improving his horses into their preparation offers an appealing profile.

R7 Ascend Sales Trophies BM64 | 2040| 9:30pm

Doncella improved noticeably last start when second at Swan Hill with a rating that is very competitive here. While her likely position of back in the field is far from ideal, Weir has a good record of getting these type of runners to maintain and even improve their form and Doncella does have some even better ratings over this distance from last preparation she could progress to.

R8 William Hill BM70 | 1200m | 10:00pm

Ozi Choice only won narrowly at Dunkeld last start, but the figures are right up to winning this race and there was a big margin spread back through the other runners, which is always a positive sign. He’s on a nice pattern of improvement this preparation under Darren Weir, which presents the potential for him to improve again.
