Moonee Valley Race 1 – Webb Australia Handicap (1200m)
- Tip: #1 Anguissola from #7 So Nonchalant – Bet now a Luxbet
Just seven horses left in the race, hard to go past the clear favourite based on their form, but they have a big weight so for an upset the lightly-raced So Nonchalant looks a chance.

- Tip: #4 Two For Tea from #2 Pento Diablo – Bet now at Luxbet
Waterhouse’s classy gelding Two For Tea is the favourite for a reason – Melbourne Cup horse of the future?
