Race 1 - 5:15PM Ladbrokes Bet Ticker Maiden Plate (1200 METRES)
Some promising three-year-olds feature in the opener at Moonee Valley and I am keen on LAFARGUE ($6.50 with Bet365) at his third career start. The Danny O’Brien-trained galloper showed good early speed when resuming over the 1325m at Geelong on September 17 and can cross from the wide barrier in the early stages. In his recent run, he led them up before just being run down late by Euro Dandy, who heads to the Super Impose Stakes (1800m) at Flemington on Saturday. Lafargue went 2.2 lengths faster than standard, which are the second best figures that any runner in this race has produced. Dio achieve a slight higher mark when battling against the big guns in the Poseidon Stakes (1100m) at Flemington. With any luck from the wide gate in the early stages he can take this out.
Race 3 - 6:15PM Moonee Valley Park Handicap (1000 METRES)
This looks to be a suitable assignment for BEATRIX ($10 with Ladbrokes). The Tony Noonan-trained galloper has had four runs this time in and led them up before finishing 3rd a couple of runs ago at Cranbourne over the 1200m. She then dropped back to the 1000m and ran 5th in a BM70 at Sandown, beaten just over two lengths. The daughter of Smart Missile was off the scene for just under a year and showed some talent last year after a few runs, winning at Sandown before placing at Caulfield behind Bless Her in Saturday grade. She will be suited by the possibility of a wet-track at Moonee Valley and should find a spot in the front half from barrier 6 early on.
Race 6 - 7:45PM TOTE Bar & Dining Handicap (1600 METRES)
I don’t mind BALLET MASTER ($10 with Palmerbet) at a bit of a price in Race 6 of the evening. The eight-year-old has a tendency to mix his form but was very solid here on September 4, leading before fading late into 4th position behind the promising Mr Brightside. The form out of that race has held up and he went 9.2 lengths faster than standard, which are the best last start figures of any runner in this race. He has some excellent form over the 1600m this time in and was luckless at Caulfield three starts back, while he won in this grade five starts ago on the Soft at Caulfield, going 12.6 lengths faster than standard, which are the best figures that any other horse has produced in the past two years. His only other run at the Valley came over the unsuitable 1200m. He should push forward from the barrier and if he can find the lead early on he will be suited with the rail out 7m.
