Racing Tips – Friday Night Best Bets for Moonee Valley

Night Racing - Horse Racing Tips

We’re back at Moonee Valley just six days after the Cox Plate for a night meeting that kicks off a massive weekend of racing.

Best Bet

6. Long Tycoon
Moonee Valley R4 (6:45pm)

Long Tycoon comes down from Sydney and looks well placed to break his maiden. The Waterhouse/Bott trained gelding placed at Warwick Farm two starts back before going down narrowly at Kembla last start. Blinkers go on for the first time and Damien Oliver has been booked for the ride.

Recommended Price: $3.50
Confidence Level: 4.5/5

7. Powerful Eagle
Moonee Valley R3 (6:15pm)

Powerful Eagle drops back from a BM70 at Caulfield and the form out of that race looks strong now with the winner, Zoe’s Promise, winning at Group 2 level last Saturday. Powerful Eagle should get the gun run from barrier four and rain affected ground seems to hold no fears.

Recommended Price: $2.50
Confidence Level: 4/5

4. Calla Dream
Moonee Valley R6 (7:45pm)

Calla Dream can cause a minor upset here. The mare was only just beaten first up at Morphettville Parks when held up at a vital stage and in inferior ground. Typically she takes a run to find her best form and she should be ready to peak here. Crucially, she has drawn inside the favourite Elite Icon and that could make all the difference.

Recommended Price: $5.00
Confidence Level: 3.5/5

5. Coolth
Moonee Valley R7 (8:15pm)

Coolth has been a hard horse to catch but his best form wins this race. The key to his chances here is that he has drawn a wide barrier, perfect for him given he is a big horse who needs a lot of galloping room. Jamie Mott will likely get back in the run, but if they are capable of making ground by this time of night he can storm over the top of them.

Recommended Price: $4.00
Confidence Level: 3.5/5

1. Idon'tgetit
Moonee Valley R8 (8:45pm)

Idon’tgetit looks really well placed third up and back on wet ground. The Peter Chow trained gelding comes off a last start fourth in a good race on Geelong Cup day run in slick time. This is easier and getting back on to a wet track (he is two from three on heavy) is very much in his favour.

Recommended Price: $5.00
Confidence Level: 4/5
