24 August 2019 (Racing at the Valley - Moonee Valley)

Racing returns to THE VALLEY with the penetrometer reading 4.8, so currently looking at a SOFT (5) surface where I’d expect it to remain, with an off chance of an upgrade later.

RAIL: +4M (ENTIRE CIRCUIT). We head to THE VALLEY with the rail out +4M. I did walk the track this morning and don’t see any issue with the rail or near rail especially from the 400m mark to the winning post. Ground quite even in the straight itself however on and prior to the bend you don’t think it’s a day to be making long, sustained, wide sweeping runs. Hence, am basing all on an advantage to those closer to the pace/rail, however always pace dependant.

Average odds $14.05+ per suggested runner!

BEST OF DAY @ $3.80+ & @ $3.50+

BEST LONGSHOTS @ $16+ , @ $23+ & @ $51+

Racing returns to ROSEHILL with sunny but windy weather (westerly), penetrometer 4.75, hence looking at a GOOD (4) surface.

RAIL: TRUE (ENTIRE CIRCUIT). We head to ROSEHILL with the rail back to the TRUE position.

Racing returns to ROSEHILL with wintry and windy weather forecast for race day. Currently looking at a HEAVY (8) surface with the penetrometer reading 5.93.

RAIL: +3M (ENTIRE CIRCUIT). We head to ROSEHILL with the rail out +3M. Given the conditions, very important to keep a close eye early on how track is playing.
