RACE 1 - 6:30PM E.J. WHITTEN TIME TO TEST HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
Best Bet 🏆No. 1 TREPORTI $2.10 Bet Now!
The opener sees the two-year-olds tackle the 1200m and TREPORTI is the one they have to beat. The Danny O’Brien-trained galloper comes out of the recent Talindert Stakes (1100m), which was taken out by the eventual Blue Diamond Stakes (1200m) runner-up, Ingratiating. He stuck on well to finish 4th in that race and is the only horse in the field that has produced positive benchmark figures in their careers to date. Damian Lane rides and with the rail out 6m he will look to push up from barrier 5.
RACE 6 - 9:00PM E.J. WHITTEN FOUNDATION HANDICAP (2040 METRES)
Next Best 🥈No. 10 HOLSTER $3.70 Bet Now!
Race 6 of the evening is a BenchMark 70 over the Cox Plate distance and HOLSTER gets his chance to chalk up the second win of his career. The four-year-old broke through in Maiden grade three starts ago and was unlucky over the 1600m at Sandown after that before leading and running 3rd over the 1800m behind Larrikin at Hillside on a week ago. The son of Tavistock is on the short backup and meets the winner 2.5kg better at the weights, while the benchmark figures out of the recent race are superior to the last start figures of any runner. He should be suited at Moonee Valley, particularly if Jamie Kah opts to roll forward again.
RACE 7 - 9:30PM RANVET SUMMER SERIES STAYERS FINAL (2500 METRES)
Best Value💰No. 1 FANCIFUL TOFF $6 Bet Now!
The stayers stretch out over the 2500m and FANCIFUL TOFF can get the job done for the Maher/Eustace stable. The six-year-old has had two runs this campaign and battled over the 1700m a Warrnambool when resuming before stepping out over the 2040m at Moonee Valley on February 5 and finishing runner-up to Outlandos. In that race he didn’t enjoy much room as they approached the bend before pushing out very wide and producing the fastest last 400m. He steps out to the 2500m and produced some solid performances over the distance range at his last preparation in stronger company than what he meets in this race. From barrier 3, he shouldn’t be too far away in the run and with Jye McNeil on board he can get the job done.
