Moonee Valley Tips 28/10/2022
BEST BET 🏆
Race 2 No. 3 INVINCIBLE CAVIAR- ($2)
INVINCIBLE CAVIAR can make it three wins on the trot when she steps out in Race 2. The daughter of Black Caviar resumed with a strong win at Sale on October 5, defeating Blistering by just under a length. The Peter Moody-trained galloper 2.9 lengths faster than standard and looks up to the step to BenchMark 70. Look for her to lead or box seat with Luke Nolen on board.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 1 No. 6 DAKARAI– ($5)
DAKARAI can break the maiden in the opening event of the evening at Moonee Valley. The Wendy Kelly-trained galloper has had four career starts for three minor placings and stepped out at Sale on October 5 over the 1108m, running on to fill the exacta behind Over Shady. She went 1.7 lengths slower than standard benchmark, which are the best last start figures of any runner. Damien Oliver sticks on board and the pair draw much better this time around.
BEST VALUE 💰(EACH-WAY)
Race 5 No. 8 STARRING ROLE- ($9.50)
STARRING ROLE shapes as an each-way player in Race 5 of the evening. The six-year-old was solid off what was a tough run at Hillside when resuming over the 1400m, finishing 5th behind Picarones. She was caught deep that day but stuck on well. At her last preparation the Max Hinton-trained galloper improved nearly 10 lengths on benchmark figures when second up and rising in distance. She gets the 3kg claim for Celine Gaudry and is likely to settle handy.
