30/11/19 Moonee Valley Tips and best bets

Feature race previews and best bets

Victorian metropolitan racing returns to The Valley this Saturday, with a competitive nine race card giving punters plenty to ponder.

The track is currently rated a Good 4 and the rail is in the true position. 

At this set-up, the track should play fair and give all runners their chance.  


Mark has had 4 profitable tipping days from his last 6.

The Valley Race 6 Ladbrokes Cash In Handicap 1200m

Three Beans, Magnetism, Alburq, Somals and Ponga will make sure this is a truly run race.

Jumping from barrier 8, Rubisaki will be back in the field but has a tremendous finish on her.

Going by her previous form, she will continue to improve as she gets up in distance. With so much speed engaged, I expect her to finish over the top of them here.

Cosmic Rhapsody (10) will have to overcome the wide draw if he's to make it four-in-a-row and once again carries top weight. This gelding is flying and although there are some negatives, he is a clear second pick.

Somals (6) is two from two and won at the Valley over this distance last start. Must include.

Horse Racing Tip  Mark's Race 6 Tips

1st Rubisaki (Best Bet)

2nd Cosmic Rhapsody

3rd Somals


The Valley Race 7 Ace Seating Handicap 1600m

Esposito Gold is the likely leader here, with Something Silver and Tata Da Goose likely to pair off behind her.

Vanuatu (2) was very close in Group 3 company two starts back, before getting too far out of his ground last start.

Stepping up to 1600m from barrier two, jockey Clayton Douglas can take a forward position and be poised to strike on turning for home. 

Snogging (1) was admirable in Group Three company last start and has been very close in all of her three runs this campaign. She will appreciate the 3kg claim and soft barrier draw. With even luck, she can win.

Sure Knee (6) is the class runner here and her win last start at Flemington was full of merit.

However, this is a more difficult assignment given the tight Valley track coupled with her ugly speed map which will see her settle towards the rear.

She'll be forced to carry an extra 5kg with an apprentice aboard and looks a genuine risk at $2. 

Horse Racing Tip  Mark's Race 7 Tips

1st Vanuatu

2nd Snogging

3rd Sure Knee


The Valley Race 8 Kingsville Manor Lakes Handicap 2040m

Pissaro likes to lead and you can expect the likes of Gundown, Etana and Secret Blaze to provide him company out in front.

Savaheat (10) won two on the trot this campaign, before coming home strongly from back in the field to run a very good fourth behind Pacodali.

She comes here fifth-up with fitness on her side and has found a very winnable race here. If she holds her form, she can win this. 

Rupture (9) has been impressive this prep. He won by 4.25 lengths in Swan Hill, before romping home by 6 lengths in the Hamilton Cup. He then finished a credible sixth in the Bendigo Cup behind Top Of The Range.

The Valley should suit him to a tee and if left alone in front, will prove mighty hard to run down.

Secret Blaze (11) won well over the mile in Adelaide last start and the extra journey here suits. He has form over this distance range and is right in this.

Horse Racing Tip  Mark's Race 8 Tips

1st Savaheat

2nd Rupture

3rd Secret Blaze
