Racing Tips – Thursday Best Bets for Mornington

Racing heads to Mornington Racecourse on Thursday for the traditional holiday meeting. The track is currently rated good.

Best Bet

4. Scream
Mornington R7 (4.00pm)

The Yargi stable have a great record on their home track and they can get another winner here with Scream. The ex-NSW galloper has struck a rich vein of form and his recent run at Moonee Valley was his best yet, finishing less than a length off the winner. He should sit midfield off a hot speed and be too strong late.

Recommended Price: $2.70
Confidence Level: 4/5

9. Sunflower Gift
Mornington R2 (1.30pm)

Sunflower Gift contines to improve with more racing and as the distances get longer, and the mare looks well placed in this thin maiden over a mile and a half. She comes off a close last start second at Werribee with a huge margin to third. From barrier four she should find the perfect spot and fight out the finish.

Recommended Price: $3.50
Confidence Level: 3.5/5

10. Edge of Seventeen
Mornington R5 (3.00pm)

The gap in the betting between Edge of Seventeen and Amigo seems far too big here based on their recent jumpout. There was not much between the pair and the former went to the line in front under very little pressure. There is no reason why that can’t be repeated on raceday.

Recommended Price: $4.00
Confidence Level: 3.5/5

8. Valenki
Mornington R9 (5.00pm)

Valenki is knocking on the door to win a race and gets his chance here. The locally trained gelding has gone down in narrow finishes at his last couple of starts but maps to get a comfortable lead here on his home track that can prove the difference. The favourite Spirit Beast is the more talented horse but his racing pattern makes him vulnerable.

Recommended Price: $4.60
Confidence Level: 3/5
