Christmas is in the air and racing heads to Moonee Valley Racecourse on Saturday for a ten race program to be run on good going. Our best bet is an in-form sprinter.
In-form gelding Philosopher looks primed to make it three wins in a row. The gelding has been dominant in back to back victories at Mornington and Cranbourne, showing good early speed to lead and give nothing else a chance over 1000m. The inside draw is perfect for him, he can go straight to the front and take all the catching.
Recommended Price: $3.30
Confidence Level: 4.5/5

Gitalong has a very good chance of making it three straight wins here. The Hawkes gelding has put together solid back to back wins in Sydney over 1000m, leading all the way in both. With a race fitness edge over key rivals, he should take plenty of beating. Don’t expect Jye McNeil to lead but he should hopefully sit outside the leader.

Change Is Coming is an intriguing runner. The ex-Darwin galloper has been sent down to renowned barrier guru Julien Welsh to fix his manners at the start and his recent jumpout suggested that has done the trick. He looked terrific against some top horses including Rey Magnerio and Rose Quartz. Capable of running slick time, he should be in the finish here.

Sandy Prince brings a very strong formline into this race which is his last start second placing behind Boldinho at Ararat. That horse came out and bolted in at Caulfield last Saturday. It was an enthralling head to head battle between those two horses. Sandy Prince finds an easier contest here and his on pace style will be suited.
