Tonight Melbourne’s Moonee Valley Racecourse will host another bumper twilight race meeting with a cracker eight-event programme set to light up the track and here the Races.com.au team list our insider Friday Night Racing Tips for Moonee Valley.
Racing at Moonee Valley this evening is due to kick off with the $30,000 Fisher & Paykel Plate (1519m) at 6:45pm (AEDST) and in the opening race we are tipping #6 Almindoro despite their wider draw, the Redoute’s Choice three-year-old a Group placegetter and second-up for the season
For racing fans that love a genuine staying test, Moonee Valley Race 3 the $30,000 Beauty Mate Handicap (3000m) at 7:45pm (AEDST) is shaping up as a beauty.
We are tipping the Patrick Payne-trained Dave The Dude (no.3) to claim an upset win over favourite Montahlia, after their last start second at this track and distance on January 28.
The following event, Race 4 the $55,000 Essendon Mazda 55 Second Challenge Heat 13 (955m) at 8:15pm (AEDST), should also produce a good show and for the win we fancy another upset with #2 Royal Bender to thrive with the drop back in class here from their last two Group race starts during the spring.
Below we have listed our top picks from all the Moonee Valley race fields tonight so you can get in on the Melbourne autumn racing action.
