Mornington Tips


Mornington hosts Victorian racing on Thursday with a promising eight race program. 

There should be a few horses going around that progress onto better things this preparation. 

The rail is out four meters for the entire circuit so watch out for an on-pace bias early on in the meeting. The track will be rated as either a Soft 5 or a Good 4 depending on the weather overnight. 

Mornington Best Bet 


Race 7 No. 5 Heyington Station

It’s hard to see anything beating this Phillip Stokes trained Gelding and that’s why he is our best on the program. 

This galloper, by Star Witness and out of Unapologetic debuted at Pakenham on the synthetic where he was a certainty beaten after having no room in the straight. 

The horse that beat him by 0.5 lengths was Stand to Attention who will race in the Group One Caulfield Guineas on Saturday. 

Heyington Station then went to Moe for an easy kill, winning by three lengths eased down on the line. 

The way he races suits Mornington down to a tee. He will jump from barrier five and either lead or sit on the speed and if all things are being equal he shouldn’t have any problem beating this field who have all struggled in similar grade recently.

Race 1 No. 4 Boreas

This Filly, by Medaglia D’Oro and out of Gybe has opened up well over the odds in what is a conservative maiden.

Boreas trialled up brilliantly in a small field at Wodonga, showing a brilliant turn of foot to win it by three lengths without too much pressure being applied. 

She debuted at Tatura and it’s fair to say that nothing went right. She missed the kick slightly and by the time that happened she was back in the ruck without anywhere to go. 

Craig Williams has come out to Mornington for two rides and even though she is considered a lesser chance than his other ride, he still must think she has a good chance of winning this race. 

She draws a better barrier today (4) and the David Hayes and Tom Dabernig polish has to be respected in these country maidens. She is a great each way play.

Verdict

We are pretty confident with our two selections today. Heyington Station is a very smart Gelding and we think he will only come in from his current price. 

We’re taking a gamble with Boreas, but she’s in a very weak maiden and has plenty of natural ability.
