Races.com.au’s 2011 George Moore Stakes Tips

Considering the above the Races.com.au team is tipping Excellantes to score their first win for the season after two narrow seconds. They have the consistency, draw (barrier six), weight (53.5kg), 1200 metre record and previous Heavy track win to make them the definite form horse to back at Luxbet.

Havatryst should make a good return from a minor injury and put in a brave run, lots in their favour but on the rails on a Heavy track isn’t advantageous, add them into your Luxbet exotics.
