Racing Tips – Saturday Best Bets for Moonee Valley

Moonee Valley generic

The last Saturday race meeting for the year comes from Moonee Valley where fine conditions and a perfect track can be expected. Our best bet is a smart stayer from the Patrick Payne stable.

Best Bet

1. Dunkel
Moonee Valley R5 (2.30pm)

Dunkel is a very talented horse that can win again. The Patrick Payne trained gelding boasts a formidable record having won six from nine including at black type level. He showed first up with a fast finishing second at Caulfield that he has come back as well as ever this prep and Billy Egan just needs some luck from the inside draw.

Recommended Price: $2.30
Confidence Level: 4.5/5

9. Imapagethree Girl
Moonee Valley R4 (1.55pm)

I don’t think this filly appreciated the deteriorating going last time at Ballarat and prepared to give her another chance on a firmer surface. Her two wins prior to that were both excellent and this is a class drop as well. Favourably drawn and looks well placed here.

Recommended Price: $7.50
Confidence Level: 3/5

4. Space Tracker
Moonee Valley R6 (3.05pm)

Space Tracker was a flop first up at Ballarat but that’s another run that can be attributed to the wet track. You go through this horse’s form from earlier this year around horses like Attractable and Cepheus and it looks outstanding for a race of this kind. Damian Lane has been booked and you can expect a big turnaround here.

Recommended Price: $4.00
Confidence Level: 3.5/5

3. Recreant
Moonee Valley R8 (4.20pm)

Recreant has gone from strength to strength since joining the Dane Smith stable and can go close again. The gelding has won three of his four starts this prep and his last win at Warrnambool was the most impressive of all. This is a step up in class but in present form he looks well over the odds.

Recommended Price: $10
Confidence Level: 3/5

4. Port Albert
Moonee Valley R10 (5.40pm)

Port Albert returns to Moonee Valley after having his last two runs in Sydney and Adelaide. Both were good, but getting back to the track where he was a dominant winner three back could be the winning formula for him. Rhys McLeod will press forward on him and take plenty of catching.

Recommended Price: $8.00
Confidence Level: 3.5/5
