Moir Stakes Betting Preview

Proven big-time performer eyeing another Group One.

Wed, 25 Sep, 12:00 AM

Race Shape:

There could be fireworks early with Ball Of Muscle (3) capable of pinging to the front easily while Nature Strip (1) can burn out of the gates too. Those two look the likely leaders while Sunlight (10) and Miss Leonidas (7) could slide across to take up a prominent spot.

The Key Runners:


11. Sunlight L.Currie: $6*:

Outstanding mare Sunlight shapes as the one to bet on here. Finished fifth behind Redzel in the Concorde first-up but is three-for-three when racing second-up so you would expect significant improvement for this. Has already won a feature sprint here at the Valley and has captured the Coolmore, Newmarket and William Reid. Goes forward from 10 and will be very hard to beat.


3. The BostonianD.Lane: $11*:

This guy dominated the Queensland Winter Carnival with wins in the Doomben 10,000 and Kingsford-Smith Cup. Comes into this first-up since June, he absolutely flies fresh and has won all five starts at the beginning of a prep! Barrier 13 is sticky but any horse with his record has to be respected.


12. Booker D.Oliver: $18*:

She is the fastest Oakleigh Plate winner in history so that alone suggests she is capable of taking this out. Drawn four and has early speed so expect her to be up in the firing line throughout. No luck first-up so may pay to forgive.



  1. Sunlight $6*
  2. Nature Strip $5*
  3. The Bostonian $11*
  4. Booker $18*

Betting Plan:

You are getting value in this race if you are opposing the favourite (Nature Strip) which we are. Just when you think he is going to be Australia’s best sprinter, he becomes his own worst enemy again. Go for Sunlight at the odds because you know what you get with her.

The Bostonian and Booker are just two that you can have a saver on but most of these can win without surprising.
