Moonee Valley Friday Night Racing & Tips

Victoria’s Moonee Valley Racecourse will be home to a stellar eight-race programme this evening kicking off at 6:45pm (AEDST) with the $30,000 Mitchell Property Management Handicap (1600m).

Our tip for opening Moonee Valley event is #3 Lady Of The Lamp, Peter Moody’s speedy Fastnet Rock filly coming off a close second at this track and distance on February 4 and drawn well in barrier two.

Moonee Valley Race 4 is another quality fillies-only race on tonight’s card, the $55,000 Essendon Mazda 55 Second Challenge Heat 14 (955m) due to jump at 8:15pm (AEDST) and for the win the hot favourite #1 Umgeton is hard to go past.

The other headline event not to miss here is Race 7 – the $30,000 LF Signs & Designs Handicap (2500m) at 9:45pm (AEDST) where we are tipping #3 Montgomery to win their third straight at the track.

Canterbury Friday Night Tips & Race Programme

The Sydney racing action is top-class tonight with Canterbury ready to run an exciting seven-race Friday night programme getting underway at 7:00pm (AEDST) with the $27,000 Bowermans Recycled Office Furniture Handicap (1900m).

In Canterbury Race 1 we are tipping #4 Prince Of Essex to return to form and score an upset at good odds.

The second event on the Canterbury card is the $27,000 Bowermans.Com.Au Handicap (1250m) due to jump at 7:30pm (AEDST) and here we are sticking with favourite #4 Gai’s Choice, David Pfieffer’s General Nediym filly coming off two impressive wins in Sydney and then Queensland this year.

Our other top Canterbury Race Tips for tonight are:

Back #5 Halfwaytolondon with the inside running in Race 5 – the $27,000 Bowermans Office Furniture Handicap (2800m) at 9:00pm (AEDST)

Follow that up in Race 6 – the $27,000 Envirobank Recycling Handicap (1100m) at 9:30pm (AEDST) with a big Win bet on #3 Go Diva Go who is at juicy double figure odds despite their impressive form and ideal draw

Sunshine Coast Friday Night Betting & Tips

The Sunshine Coast Turf Club is due to run tonight’s third TAB meet with the first of seven races, the $10,000 Bridge Seafoods Class 1 Handicap (1600m), kicking off the action at 7:37pm (AEDST) and for the win we like #1 In His Image.

Sunshine Coast Race 4 – the $12,000 JPG Design & Print Colts, Geldings & Entires Class 3 Plate (1400m) at 9:07pm (AEDST) is a wide-open affair with lots of value for punters and we have our money on #5 Nero’s Fire.

The next event on the card is also worth checking the Luxbet odds for with Race 5 – the $12,000 C H U Underwriting Fillies & Mares Class 3 Plate (1400m) jumping at 9:37pm (AEDST) and for the win #5 Figasaurus has the form and draw.
