Moonee Valley Tips for January 15

Cliff Wood Memorial Plate Tips (Race 3)

Moonee Valley Best Bet - Race 3 No. 1 Aminatu

This galloper was heavily supported last week at Cranbourne, but got caught three wide on the speed and was never going to win.

I like the week back-up and the step up in trip to the six furlongs where there does not look as much opposition for a forward position.

Her form was franked at Flemington with Zesty Belle winning, the filly that this one finished runner-up to at Mornington first-up.

If Aminatu gets the luck from barrier 11, this is the weakest maiden she has faced so there will not be a better opportunity to flick the duck off of her.

Ladbrokes 55 Second Challenge Heat 10 Tips (Race 5)

Moonee Valley Value Bet - Race 5 No. 3 The Commoner

A sprinter that suits Moonee Valley, winning at the track and trip two back in this grade with more weight. 

Arguably, that race was a little weaker than what she faces today, but it is hard to forget how strong to the line she was with some pace on up front.

Now coming into this off of a seven week let-up, her fresh stats real amazing having four runs for two wins and two placings.

She will get back from the gate and over the 955m scamper, watch right down the outside as that is where this fast five-year-old mare will be.

Seppelt Wines Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Moonee Valley Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 13 Real Gun

Real Gun has been in great form this prep, running second to Sayumi two starts ago where he was left in front a long way from home, just struggling to hold off the winner.

Last start that form was well and truly franked with a dominant front running ride from John Allen at Caulfield, kicking on the turn and running away by almost three lengths.

He now has his first start out of Maiden grade in a benchmark 64, not the strongest we have seen either, so gets his chance to record win number two at start five.

Drawn barrier two, this gelding should find the front or sit outside of Sasayuri, who is drawn to his inside.
