Yarra Valley Tips for December 18

United Petroleum SV 3YO Maiden Plate Tips (Race 2)

Yarra Valley Next Best Bet - Race 2 No. 1 Amfissa

This debutant from the Chris Waller stable looks ready to rock first-up after a Werribee jumpout win, where he settled back and came home over the top of them to win.

Being by Mongolian Khan, he will improve as he steps up in trip, but has shown good ability in the short course jumpouts, a positive sign leading into his debut.

Drawing barrier two allows the horse to do zero work in the early stages of the race, possibly even taking a closer position to the speed which would be ideal around the Yarra Valley circuit.

Power Edge Electrical Maiden Plate Tips (Race 4)

Yarra Valley Value Bet - Race 4 No. 9 Charming Adeline

Her first two starts held a lot of merit to them, showing great speed and managing to kick off the short course bends in nice form races.

First-up this time in, she found nothing on a day where the fence may not have been the right spot to be at Mornington and here, and the in-form Daniel Moor takes the reins on Friday.

This girl will likely lead and Yarra Valley will suit with that the tight bend so if she's sound, then this three-year-old can give a big sight at good odds.

CHP Management BM58 Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Yarra Valley Best Bet - Race 5 No. 10 Mosscon

From the David Brideoake stable is Mosscon was good in defeat last time out when beaten comfortably by Quesadilla who looks to have plenty of ability. 

In third spot there was Fudging, a subsequent winner in this class of race, so the form has stood up and most of her opposition are battling, which gives her a great opportunity to record career win number two on Friday.

She has some second-up and drawing to do no work in barrier two under Beau Mertens, this four-year-old has good claims as the best bet on the program.
