Moonee Valley plays host to Saturday metro racing in Victoria.
The BetDeluxe team has gone through the best bets on the nine-race program.
Moonee Valley Race 1
Friend of the site, and champion jockey, Michael Walker has been very impressed with Duchy of Savoy.
The filly from Team Hawkes looked good resuming in a maiden win at Sandown.
Under Jye Mcneil she’ll again try to sit on the speed and looks the biggest threat to the toppy.
Nonetheless, our team can’t look past Unflinching in this one.
Unblemished so far and regains the services of Damien Thornton.
Sired by I Am Invincible, this Colt is one to keep your eye on this weekend and going forward.
Suggested Bet: Unflinching win at $1.9
Suggested Exotic: Quinella 1 & 5
moonee valley race 3
#1 good idea
Drops down two kilos on his last start, after finishing fourth in Flemington over the 2800m.
Peaking in fitness and gets a great barrier here.
He’s the son of So You Think and classy mare Faint Perfume who has always performed well at this distance, particularly under Damian Lane.
Suggested Bet: Good Idea at $3.7
Moonee valley race 5
#2 yulong command
Yulong Command was unlucky not to win last start at Flemington, when carrying the big weight, succumbing to Scorched Earth.
He’s a consistent Gelding with a knack for delivering strong performances when fresh.
Form reads well for him and he’s a class above most of this field.
Best of the day!
Suggested Bet: Yulong Command at $2.2
moonee valley race 8
#8 pioneer river
Two wins a row for this Maher and Eustace Gelding and we’re hoping to make it three here.
There’s a lot of competition with #1 Curran and favourite, #11 In The Boat, both strong threats.
But at the price we can’t look past Pioneer River.
Known more as a straight track specialist but he seems to have a real soft spot for the Valley, nice draw helps too.
Suggested Bet: Pioneer River each way at $7 the win and $2.5 the place
Suggested Exotic: Boxed Trifecta 1, 8, 11
