Moonee Valley Tips August 1

Support Living Legends Horses' Birthday Handicap (Race 1)

Moonee Valley Best Bet - Race 1 No. 6 Victoria Star

Short but sweet this geldling looks in the opening race.

He was tremendous four weeks ago, on a pace bias track where he was five weeks between runs, stepping up from 1400m to 1600m.

He comes into this mile event with the mile run under his belt and some of the strongest winter form lines in Victoria.

The track of Moonee Valley seems to hold a bit of give in it which suits this horse if the track comes up in the good range.

His last run on a good track was at Caulfield, where he ran third behin Heptagon who would be as short as this horse is in this race.

If not him, the race looks open, but we are confident that Victoria Star can kick us off as a winner as the best bet of the card.

Jockey Celebration Day Handicap (Race 2)

Moonee Valley Roughie - Race 2 No. 7 The Cruiser

This 2YO Colt from the Frankie Stockdale stable is a full brother to Headway, a Golden Slipper place getter and Coolmore Stud winner as a 3YO.

Coming from a country stable, he will be automatically looked over in the betting but he does seem to posess some ability based on his trial and jumpout.

He trialled in February at Cranbourne, running second when coming down the outside, showing a strong turn of foot.

The question over him is will he be run off his legs early and better off suited over 1200m?

We are happy to take $26 to find out.

Remembering Mark Goring & Adrian Ledger Handicap (Race 4)

Moonee Valley Next Best Bet - Race 4 No. 4 Brooklyn Hustle

This filly is by far the best horse in the race but is yet to produce a run as strong as the first win of her career at this track.

Thsi is the first time she sees Moonee Valley since the day she beat Yes Yes Yes, and has had a quiet jumpout in preparation for the race.

The 1000m suits, as does the expected hot pace from Iknewshewasmine, Fill The Flute and A Good Yarn.

Barrier four looks favourable and looking back on last preps first-up performance against much stronger company, she was brilliant when fifth in the Poseidon Stakes, making up ground against the pattern of the day.

Chandler Macleod Handicap (Race 9)

Moonee Valley Favourite - Race 9 No. 9 Proper Rogue

The favourite in this race is the fifth emergency so we are not execting him to take his spot which will leave this horse as the favourite.

First-up he should have won at Caulfield when luckless along the inside before a run that was possibly 'second-up syndrome', running well below market expectation at Flemington.

He is drawn to receive all the favours in barrier four and fitter third-up, he will be right in the finish with even luck in running.

As the day goes on, hopefully horses start coming off the fence which will give this horse the best chance of winning.
