We're backing up again, and looking to close out the racing week with a bang, as Luke Krahe brings you his best bets from around the country this Sunday. We head to Moonee Valley and Grafton for his racing tips of the day. Check them out below!
(7) Legend Of Zorro has been to the races three times, improving at both runs this campaign. He resumed at his home track of Ballarat in mid-June, settled mid-field but was pushed very wide when the runs came and made ground late in a busy finish in a race that has produced a subsequent winner. He then went to Wangaratta two weeks ago, settled handy and although he got into second, he really made no impression on the impressive winner. He has gone around again in town in a much harder race since (beaten out of sight but there was obviously an issue). He looks to handle the heavy track well enough - here at the Valley the Heavy rating can play very differently to at Sandown and Caulfield for example. Up in trip, he should be straight behind the speed and too sharp third-up.
(1) Bastyan has been a model of consistency in his 7 career starts, only missing a place at one of them. His maiden win was second-up as he is today, he was very heavily backed at Moe and sat outside the leader doing all the work and was way too good. He resumed at Donald five weeks ago and was very solidly supported into favourite late, after settling behind the speed he was held-up from the top of the straight until just inside the furlong pole. He got out and chased hard but was no match for the winner. It has proven a good form reference with the third horse coming out and winning next start and then running well in town, the winner wasn’t beaten far at its subsequent run also in town in a much harder race. Bastyan maps to get a gun run on the rail behind the leader, will only need even luck here at the Valley when they start to swoop, getting off the rails.
(1) In Fiore has the 63kg to cart around which is a factor, but one that I am willing to overlook. His record at this track is fantastic winning three of four. The only time he has tasted defeat here was last start a fortnight ago. He was a Class 3 winner here two back and then was again at that level last time out. He was poorly away and was a mile back in the big field, cramped up on the rails. He was getting into the clear when he had to steady off heels, his last 200m was really good to get within 3 lengths at the finish. There doesn’t look to be a lot of speed and with the smaller field, I expect him to be settling closer and taking his winning record here at the track to 80%.
(1) Flying Euros is still a maiden after 10 starts and the son of Eurozone has burned us on more than one occasion here on this site. So those that see his name and pen him immediately, it is hard to argue with you, but I will make my case, nonetheless. He is on his home track that he has placed at 4 of 6 and no doubt they would love him to get the monkey off his back and get that first win here at the back end of the carnival. Last start he was mid-field and off the rail, held up when the runs came before getting out and hitting the line well into second beaten just under a length. He handles the soft, will get back and run on again and I promise, if he is still a maiden after today, you won’t see him here again! There looks to be plenty of speed in the race - one of the reasons I am staying away from the likely favourite (9) Les Amoureux. She will race on the speed but from the inside draw, do you really want to be on a 20-start maiden that is no moral to find the top?
