The 2020 Moir Stakes looks set to be an ultra fast 1000m sprint with a boom 3YO expected to take his place.

Hanseatic was the second place getter in the Blue Diamond Stakes last Autumn and the benchmark 2YO in Victoria.

He has drifted in the market due to an inconclusive run first-up but best to be forgiving.

Bella Vella was tremendous first-up in the McEwen at this track where she beat Brooklyn Hussle and Hanseatic, form that would see her go close to winning this race.

2020 Moir Stakes Tips

Moir Stakes 2020 Best Bet - Hanseatic

He opened up at a crazy price of $9 when markets first opened which was quickly snatched up by the punters out there but has drifted now out to double figures.

He was beaten first-up this prep in the McEwen, but was shunted wide on the turn when you needed to be closer to the pace.

His three career wins have been electric to date, including wins in both the Blue Diamond Prelude and Preview.

He has a finish on him like Extreme Choice did when he won this race in 2016 as a 3YO when beating Chautauqua.

Being a WFA race, he is well treated at the weights with 52kg, which is why we are seeing him as one of the main chances in the race.

Moir Stakes 2020 Next Best Bet - Bella Vella (Tipped at $13)

This mare was the winner of the Group One Robert Sangster Stakes at her last start before a spell in Adelaide.

She is a brilliant front running mare around Moonee Valley, having won three and placed once in reasonably strong races, including the McEwen Stakes last start.

She shocked a lot of people when strongly running out the 1200m at the end of last prep, but being an older mare now she may just be losing that speed edge she has always shown.

What I like about her coming into this race, is that she has been kept fresh and had just the one run before this assignment.

Moir Stakes 2020 Roughie - Diamond Effort

She is an owners dream having won her last five, inluding her first-up run in The Heath over 1100m.

The quality of horses she is facing over the 1000m journey is her question mark, seeing as she has not been tested at this level before besides a scond placing to Pippie in the spring last season.

She is a mare in form though, who is holding it and is certaily worth a little gamble if she can get to double figures.
