Friday night we head to Money Valley for the Group 2 William Hill Alister Clark over the famous Cox Plate distance of 2040m.
MOONEE VALLEY - RACE 6 @ 9:15 PM (AEDT): A decent field has accepted with STRATUM STAR the clear favourite @ $2.20+. Big fan of him and also FIREHOUSE ROCK who is also right in the market, but unfortunately don't believe either represent good enough value to consider a betting proposition.
Instead, think best value lies with two runners at juicy each way odds in BERISHA @ $21+/$5.44+ (LUXBET) and TRIPLE GOLD @ $23+/$5.89+ (LUXBET), both representing excellent each way value in a much more even affair than the market suggests.
Everything went wrong for BERISHA last time and you always seem to get overs after a horse gets done after starting in the red. Had the audacity to still hit the line well after doing a stack of work and seamingly going backwards on the turn. Has had a break and is good enough to win this if the stable have him fit and ready for this trip. At $21+ worth the gamble to find out.
As for TRIPLE GOLD, has not done much wrong in short career and put pay to a provincial field first up as expected. Has form against very good opposition and hopefully is ready to fire second up. Both suggestions are in this up to their eyeballs at great each way prices. For those keen on one of the faves, feel free to play 1x4 (1 unit the win, 4 units the place) or simply back them the place as current $5.44 and $5.89 place dividends more than good enough.
SUGGESTION: BERISHA @ $21+ (EACH WAY), TRIPLE GOLD @ $23+ (EACH WAY)
