The 2022 Moir Stakes is a quality 1000m WFA event, run at Moonee Valley on AFL Grand Final Eve.

Paulele (barrier six) returns to the races first-up off the back of two trials in between now and his Brisbane prep. During that campaign, he was placed in both the Group One Doomben 10,000 & Group One Kingsford Smith Cup, so he is the quality.

Rothfire (barrier five) was a track and trip winner first-up, taking out the Group Two McEwen Stakes, although was afforded every opportunity.

Bella Nipotina (barrier 11) defeated Extremely Lucky (barrier 12) in the Carlyon Stakes last month, of which both horses have been kept fresh for this race.

Zoustyle (barrier nine) placed behind Rothfire in the McEwen Stakes last start and has the tactical pace to put himself into the race once again.
