Moe Tips 14/10/2022
BEST BET 🏆
Race 9 No. 7 SAVANNAH CLOUD- ($2.80)
SAVANNAH CLOUD can end the day with a win. The Phillip Stokes-trained galloper has found one better in I Am War at her two runs this time in and did it tough out wide when resuming at Geelong, filling the exacta, before again landing in that slot at Moonee Valley last time over the 1200m. Third up last time, the five-year-old was a noted improver on benchmark figures when runner-up at Flemington, while she has performed well on Soft ground in the past. Daniel Moor rides and the pair draw barrier 4.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 4 No. 10 STARLEA- ($6)
The fillies and mares line up at BenchMark 64 level in Race 4 over the 1000m and STARLEA can kick off her preparation with a win. The four-year-old was solid in some city races at her last preparation after claiming her Maiden at Benalla. She was placed three times before producing an eye-catching run in a BenchMark 78 at Caulfield over the 1100m before spelling. The Matthew Ellerton-trained galloper produced some tidy figures in the majority of her runs last time, including when placing first up at Bendigo. This is a winnable race for her.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 5 No. 7 PERCEPTIVE- ($4.20)
PERCEPTIVE can go one spot better than a first up effort that saw her finish runner-up at Bendigo on September 21 over the 1300m. That came on a Heavy track and she is likely to get similar conditions here. Form out of the Bendigo race has been solid with the winner, Mister Me, and the 3rd placegetter, Syrocax, going on to claim their next races. The daughter of Written Tycoon has a win and a runner-up performance to her credit from her two second up runs. From barrier 4 and with Ethan Brown on board, she can get the job done.
BEST VALUE 💰(EACH-WAY)
Race 7 No. 3 PRIX DE TURN- ($9.50)
The Moe Cup pits some handy types up against one another and looking for a bit of value here with PRIX DE TURN. The Alister Clark Stakes (2040m) winner from the autumn was solid in his first two runs this time in before botching the start at The Valley in the recent JRA Cup (2040m), working hard to recover before fading late. This looks easier and it is worth pointing out he was also poor when third up last time before his win at Group 2 level.
