Moree Tips 14/03/2023

Our form expert provides Moree tips for today’s horse racing at Moree Racecourse and gives his best bets.



Race 2:  No.3  MY DIAMOND BOY  ($3.60 with BlueBet)

Tamworth galloper MY DIAMOND BOY sees the Moree track for the first time today and looks well placed for a forward showing. Last start, the Casino Prince gelding came off his Maiden win on his home track then stepped-up to Class 1 company where he finished fifth (of 13) over the mile trip, beaten just over two lengths on the line. He ran that out, 6.1 lengths slower than benchmark, setting a new personal best and the best last-start effort here. The winner of that event was Norman, who we tipped at Coonamble on Sunday where he won again, so he brings good form into this contest. Chelsea Hillier is back for her third attempt at winning on the four-year-old and from gate five, he maps to settle just off the pace where he can keep in touch with them. In peak condition after seven starts this preparation, he can take this out today.



Race 4:  No.2  ARRABBIATA  ($4.40 with Palmerbet)

The Tamworth-based ARRABBIATA was impressive on debut and looks well placed here to go one better today. The Cable Bay filly had her first start at Armidale three weeks back and did well to beat all but one home in a Maiden Plate over 1100m. She settled in the box seat and then chased them all the way to the line, finishing a neck away from the first prize that day. She is an unknown quantity on wet tracks but her opposition here have no real results to boast about either so we will take her on trust in this contest. Fitter and more experienced after that debut performance, she looks as much a winning chance as the rest here today.



Race 6:  No.8  PULL THE TAIL  ($11 with Ladbrokes)

We’ll finish with some value here as the Sue Grills-trained PULL THE TAIL is first-up today and looks a worthy contender at odds for this contest. Last start, the Starspangledbanner mare gave a big hint that she was ready for the paddock when she failed to fire in a BM58 Hcp over 1280m at Muswellbrook. Even with Ben Looker on board, the mare was done on the home turn and ended up behind all of them, beaten 12 lengths in the 14-strong field. She was spelled immediately and has been out of work for 19 weeks now. She is already a first-up winner and both career wins have come on wet tracks so (currently) double-figure odds here look too tempting to resist. After the claim, she comes in with 55.5kgs which is 3kgs less than she carried last start, so we are happy to run with her each-way today.
