Mornington Cup 2022 Tips


Mornington Cup 2022 Best Bet - Pondus

I would be in Crystal Pegasus' corner if it were not for the win of Pondus at Flemington last week, where he relished a strong tempo and was just so strong through the line.

He ran well in a Moonee Valley Gold Cup last prep over 2500m, so we know he is going to run out a strong 2400m, while he has enough tactical speed to make the most of gate three.

At Mornington, where it is always better to sit somewhere near the pace, Pondus deserves favouritism and I feel will only shorten as we approach jump time.

Mornington Cup 2022 Next Best Bet - Crystal Pegasus

This stayer looks to have been set for this event off the back of three straight wins, including a dominant effort at Flemington last start beating the subsequent Adelaide Cup runner-up.

Crystal Pegasus should be able to grab the back of Pondus in the run and could well loom as the winner on the bend.

The five-year-old just lacks the proven class that Pondus has, but the advantage he gets with that is 3.5kg off the favourite.

Mornington Cup 2022 Value Bet - Dadoozdart

Off the back of a Canberra Cup second, he has the race fitness on his side to prove a competitive force, although is still yet to record a win in Australia.

I do not believe that he has the x-factor that the top two in the market have, but does come from the camp that won this race last year, so they know what it takes.

Improvement is certainly necessary to win, but with momentum and if for some reason. things do not go right for the market leaders, Dadoozdart can cash in.
