Summer racing continues this Saturday at Moonee Valley. Find out who our experts are tipping to take home the cash on the competitive nine-race program.
Moonee Valley Race 6
Pitchanun was only grabbed in the shadows of the post last start. She always runs well here, and she looks ready to win. I expect her to get the gun run from barrier 2, and Jamie Kah is now riding winners for fun.
Not A Problem is running exceptionally well this campaign without winning. If he can stay in touch with the leaders early, he could come over top of them late. He looks over the odds in an open field.
Motamayiz will be thereabouts despite the horror barrier draw. He has been specked in early betting.
Suggested Bet: Pitchanun @ $3.50
Moonee Valley RACE 7
Ceasar will peak here third-up from a spell. He chased home a smart one last start, and he will get his chance to go one better with a dream run from barrier 1. I am excited to see him over the mile; he will look the winner as they charge around the final bend.
Riverplate is the one to beat after two impressive wins this preparation. He is going through his grades nicely, and the mile looks ideal at this stage of his campaign. He has been crunched in early betting.
New Choice can run well here at a reasonable price. He should be fitter for two runs back, and I loved how he hit the line at his latest outing.
Suggested Bet: Ceasar @ $6.50
Moonee Valley Race 8
#12 Wahine Toa
Wahine Toa can get a soft lead jumping from barrier 1. She can stack them up early and pinch some cheap sectionals. I expect her to be fitter for two runs back, and this looks like her race with the light weight. 2500m is advantageous; she will be there when the whips are cracking!
Wertheimer will run well here after an impressive performance in the Werribee Cup. He has form around High Emocean, who subsequently placed in the race that stops the nation. This race may be an afterthought.
Kaituku will join in when they are making their runs. He can fight, is tough, and will look the winner on turning. He is a very determined customer.
Suggested Bet: Wahine Toa @ $5.00
Moonee Valley Race 9
#14 Social Conscience
Social Conscience significantly jumps in grade here after two solid wins this campaign. The 3kg apprentice claim will help his case, and he should get the ideal run from a middle gate. He looks excellent each-way value in a very open Benchmark 70.
Blood Oath looks like the class runner. He has trialled well coming into this event and performed well fresh in the past. The weight and wide barrier are the primary concerns.
Magnum Bullet will sit on top of the speed. He chased home the talented Quraysha at his latest outing, and he was game in defeat. He could pinch this at the top of the straight. He looks well placed despite the class rise.
Suggested Bet: Social Conscience @ $8.00
