20 Minutes until WINX and the 2017 W.S. Cox Plate. 
16:06 28 Oct


I wasn’t going to play this race until Jungle Edge came out. The speed now looks less hectic and I’m happy to be with BURNING FRONT. Religify should be the only other horse up front with Burning Front. He did enough over his first two starts and then we saw a very good performance behind stablemate Ulmann who just showed a better Sprint on the day. He is on the quick backup, goes to the Mile from 1400m and should be nearing peak fitness now. The favourite It’s Somewhat will need the runs from the inside gate and if the inside is worse ground then he may find things difficult. I wouldn’t take a much lower price than the current $5.00 on offer at the moment, but I still think it represents good value.

HUGE WIN by FIRSTHAND at Randwick. Almost ran up the back of Chalk while To Excess had all the momentum, still drove and beat it on the wire.
15:26 28 Oct


WINX looking ready for action. Under two hours until history. 
15:24 28 Oct


BLAKE SHINN is doing what he pleases at the Valley, three winners already. 
15:10 28 Oct


BIG DUKE looked like Weir is training him right up for 3200m, don't think he was there to win today. 
15:06 28 Oct


WHO SHOT THE BARMAN bobs up and wins the Moonee Valley Cup ahead of Libran and Cismontane. The two top both ran on off a slow tempo. 
14:51 28 Oct


Interesting Race here the Moonee Valley Cup. Big Duke looks the obvious class, however Cismontane should go forward and lead and I think is the one over the odds.
14:31 28 Oct


Leaders have been extremely advantaged in the last three races at Moonee Valley. 
14:29 28 Oct


LUBITON leads all the way at The Valley. First three on the fence are the first three home. Savapinski and Invinciblella fill the placings.
14:20 28 Oct


With Oregon's Day here. We should know more about the track after this race. 
Want to have something E/W on Savapinski too. 
13:44 28 Oct


13:22 28 Oct


The Track looks to be playing well early. First two horses game 3-5 lanes wide, third horse hugged the rails.
13:17 28 Oct


WOW! What a win that was, EPTIMUM leads, rails and is far too good for his rivals. The Sydney horses filled the placings. 
12:45 28 Oct

Moonee Valley Track Update

The first two winners have both covered Ground. 4-5 wide seems the best Ground so far. 
12:43 28 Oct


GUN CASE covers ground with the big weight and is too tough to score from Danuki and Badajoz. 
12:43 28 Oct


We're on CAMILA LUCINDA in the first race at Yarra Valley.
12:33 28 Oct


The Bookies have this price wrong in my opinion. SIRBIBLE should be much shorter in the market than a $5.50 third favourite. The six-year-old Gelding flies fresh and flies at The Valley. He has had five career first-up runs for three wins and two seconds, he has had seven starts at Moonee Valley for three wins and two placings. The last three times he has been first-up have all been at The Valley. Those three runs have resulted in two wins and a third beaten a head behind Beau Rada and Sunday Escape. He ran 54.8sec over the 955m when first-up in November defeating Runson, he’ll Jump, lead and be very hard to catch.
