The whole of Melbourne is looking towards BOM, sorry, the bureau for track conditions by the team at BetDeluxe is full steam ahead with a preview of all the best action from The Valley.
MOONEE VALLEY Race 1
#6 count your pennies
We start Cox Plate Day with The Inglis Banner for the two-year-olds.
Count Your Pennies will be on speed after three impressive jumpouts. The well-bred filly looks ready for a first-up tilt despite the price. Can win.
Arkansaw Kid won a recent Flemington jumpout against several runners lined up here. It could be the correct form guide despite drifting in early markets. Sailor’s Rum will be thereabouts with the inform Jamie Kah aboard.
Suggested Bet: Count Your Pennies @ $18.00
MOONEE VALLEY RACE 7
#1 BERKELEY SQUARE
Berkeley Square bombed the start but still savaged the line in The Group 1 Caulfield Guineas. The start prior was brilliant when winning the Exford Plate at Flemington from an impossible position. The Valley is a slight concern but he is still the one to beat.
Pericles looks talented and has been well supported in both starts to date. Stable is in form and this looks a winnable race for the son of Street Boss. Sir Bailey is coming off a forgive run and can figure at odds.
Suggested Bet: Berkeley Square @ $2.35
MOONEE VALLEY Race 8
#11 Francesco Guardi
Francesco Guardi was fantastic last start in The Group 3 Bart Cummings at Flemington. Narrowly missed picking up the winner, Lunar Flare, after clipping heels and nearly falling. Can make amends here.
It’s almost D-Day for Grande Promenade, who would have started odds on against this field 12 months ago. Can peak here third up from a spell from a plumb inside draw (3).
Persan is the class on route to another Melbourne Cup, while Desert Icon is too consistent to leave out.
Suggested Bet: Francesco Guardi @ $4.20
MOONEE VALLEY RACE 9
Suggested Bet: Anamoe @ $2.35
