Racing Tips – Friday Night Best Bets for Moonee Valley

Racing on Friday night is at Moonee Valley for an eight race card on a likely soft track.

Best Bet

3. Mr French
Moonee Valley R3 (7:15pm)

Mr French is an emerging stayer who finds a very winnable race here. The gelding was completely dominant leading throughout at Bendigo last time and the form out of that race has been good. The market is (correctly) dominated by Mr French and Platinum Spirit, but Mr French gets a 2.5Kg swing vis a vis Platinum Spirit despite having beaten him last time. Also, Mr French likes to lead, never a bad thing round the Valley.

Recommended Price: $2.20
Confidence Level: 5/5

More Racing Tips

1. Master Bartholdi
Moonee Valley R5 (8:15pm)

Master Bartholdi was beaten a fair way in the Tatura Cup but can improve significantly here. The gelding was off five weeks between runs there and should strip fitter here. Critically, he looks the likely leader here and so often at Moonee Valley, that proves decisive.

Recommended Price: $5.50
Confidence Level: 3/5

8. Kev's Girl
Moonee Valley R6 (8:45pm)

Kev’s Girl resumed from a brief freshen last start with a dominant all the way win at Terang. The form out of that race has proved outstanding, with three subsequent winners. Expect Kev’s Girl to take up the running here and take a lot of catching.

Recommended Price: $5.50
Confidence Level: 3.5/5
