Moonee Valley Cup 2012 Tips

Taking place on Saturday at Moonee Valley as part of 2012 Cox Plate Day is the Group 2 2012 Moonee Valley Cup (2500m).

For many it represents a final chance to gain a start in the 2012 Melbourne Cup and as such has attracted a reasonable field.

Top of the market is Lloyd Williams-owned import Midas Touch ($4.60) who is only slightly ahead of Ibicenco ($5.00), an international raider from the Luca Cumani stable, and the Bart Cummings-trained Precedence ($5.00).

In what a is a fairly cluttered market, Gerald Ryan’s veteran Ironstein ($6.50) is not too far away nor is Moudre ($8.50).

But the chances don’t stop at single-figure prices, with Metropolitan third placegetter being offered at $11.00 and emerging stayer Vatuvei at $14.00.

Unsure who to back in the race otherwise known as the 2012 Drake International Cup? Don’t worry, the hard work has been done for you by the experts who deliver to your our expert selections.
