2019 Group One Moir Stakes Tips, Betting Predictions & Best Bet

The Moir Stakes is the only Group One sprint run over 1000m under lights in Australia, and what a field we are expecting.

The nominations are headed by Nature Strip, the short course specialist and Sunlight, Australia's sprinting darling and multiple Group One winner.

Up and coming filly Exhilarates may be looking for a Group One next to her name if connections partake in the race.

Moir Stakes Best Bet

Moir Stakes Best Bet - Nature Strip @ $2.80

He is bomb proof over 1000m when he is give his head and can stride free. He was a beaten favourite first-up in the Concorde Stakes when trying to travel in behind runner which clearly he is unable to do.

The only reason I can see him coming undone is if a horse such as Ball Of Muscle decides to match motors with him which would would imagine is highly likely to gas him.

When he is at his best, there is no horse in Australia that can match it with him over 1000m and hopefully on Friday we get to see the best of him,

Moir Stakes Value Bet

Moir Stakes Best Value - Bons Away @ $9

If they go hard in front, this is the horse that can come home over the top of them.

He needs everything in the race to pan out perfectly for him as he only has one short sprint, but if that pace is hot he can come home late.

He was very good first-up on August 24 before running second in the Mcewen in which he looked like the winner on the turn.

Third-up he is a winner and can make his presence felt is everything works out perfectly during the run for him.

Each-way special.
