Here are our Moree Tips
Back in distance today, Gunnedah galloper SHE’S SPICY (best odds $10 with Ladbrokes) looks more at home here and is capable of giving this contest a real shake at odds. Last start, the Real Saga mare finished fifth in a BM58 over 1300m at Scone. That day, she took over inside the final 200m but was swamped soon after as her final burst of speed ended prematurely in the heavy going. She ran the trip out, 3.3 lengths slower than benchmark, still the best here by more than 4 lengths. Today, trainer Sally Torrens has dropped her back sharply in distance which just might do the trick. She has placed twice previously from five starts at the 900m trip and gets a dry track as well where both her career wins have been recorded. With a ton of early speed here, drawing gate two looks a real bonus as she maps to settle just behind the battle up front and settling near the fence, she could secure an inside passage, saving ground and having some fuel left for the run home. She looks great value here, currently at double-figure odds and is well worth an each-way ticket today.
In great touch this time in, the Mark Stewart-trained FORTNITE (best odds $1.85 with Sportsbet) holds the aces here and lines-up the best of the day. Last start, the War gelding made it two wins from his three starts this preparation as he accounted for a BM58 over 1000m at Tamworth. He ran that out, 1.7 lengths slower than benchmark, the best here by more than 2 lengths. Georgina McDonnell has been aboard for all three rides this prep. And sticks with him here. This is a little tougher today but after McDonnell’s claim, the five-year-old drops 8.5kgs (or more than 18 pounds on the old scale) which will surely be telling point here. Ideally drawn in gate three, he maps to settle just off the pace and with that big weight advantage, surely just bad luck will rob him of career win number six today.
The early market suggests there are just a few winning chances to face the starter in this year’s Cup and nestled amongst those is the Scott Singleton-trained RICH AND SHAMELESS (best odds $3.40 with Bet365) who looks worthy of some thought today. Last start, the Shamus Award gelding was given the perfect ride by Rachel Murray when he took out the Black Nugget Cup at Mudgee. Settling in the box-seat soon after jumping, Murray remained calm until they straightened, then asked him for a final effort. He obliged and finished too strong in the end with some to spare. There is insufficient benchmarking data available here to assess the field on their latest efforts, however, the five-year-old ran a personal best 5.3 lengths quicker than benchmark when he won a Class 2 Highway Hcp at Randwick last preparation which is the best in this field. Already a winner when third-up, Billy Cray returns for his sixth ride on the galloper and he will be all-out to bring up his first victory on him as the last-start winner makes his Moree debut today.
