Moonee Valley Tips 23/02/2024


Race 5 No. 3 MOVEFORLEX ($4.60) 

MOVEFORLEX can go close in Race 5 of the evening at Moonee Valley. He returned at Caulfield off a 10-week break on February 3 and tackled the 1800m, closing off steadily in the straight for 4th behind El Soleado in a BenchMark78. The Patrick Payne-trained galloper thrived when getting out to the 2000m at his last preparation, finishing runner-up at Caulfield before winning over the 2400m at that venue. The son of So You Think drops in grade for this assignment and draws to get the gun run from barrier 3. 




Race 1 No. 7  GUNS ABLAZING ($7) 

GUNS ABLAZING can open up proceedings with a win. The stayer from the Amy & Ash Yargi camp hasn’t been too far away in his four runs this preparation and jumped up to the 3000m at Sandown on January 17, finishing runner-up behind Border Leicester. He led that day before being reeled in late. The nine-year-old should be ready now with the fitness in the tank and is a previous track and distance winner. Look for him to head forward and take some catching.
