The weather in Melbourne is fine and with no signs of any rain on the radar looking ahead to this evening, the current Good (4) Moonee Valley track rating should remain making for perfect racing conditions.

Moonee Valley night racing gets underway for the twilight meet at 6:15pm (AEDT) and the quality eight-race card is scheduled to continue through until the three-year-old fillies face off in the Group 3 Alexandra Stakes (1600m) at 9:45pm (AEDT) where #11 Extreme Emotion (11) has come out.

Punters are treated to three Group status races in total tonight starting with Race 4 at 7:45pm (AEDT) where a quality line-up of fillies and mares run in the Group 2 $300,000 Sunline Stakes (1600m).

It is a diminutive but class Sunline Stakes 2022 field gathered with all seven original acceptors still in the mix led in betting at Ladbrokes.com.au by Flying Mascot at an odds-on quote to make it three straight wins.

Of course, the event all the punters are waiting for is the Group 1 $1 million William Reid Stakes (1200m) set to run as Race 7 at The Valley at 9:15pm (AEDT).

Two horses have been scratched from the 2022 William Reid Stakes field with Cliff Brown’s galloper #3 The Inferno (7) withdrawn due to a sore foot and the widely-drawn youngster #13 Marine One (13) out for the Maher/Eustace stable.

Ciaron Maher & David Eustace are still dually represented with the market mover Generation heavily backed in from $26 to $8.50 in William Reid Stakes betting along with the odds-on favourite Marabi ($1.75).

Marabi is undefeated coming off a seven-straight winning streak that includes a strong last start performance in the Group 1 Oakleigh Plate (1100m).
