What Moonee Valley Races
Where Moonee Valley Racecourse – 1 McPherson St, Moonee Ponds VIC 3039
When Friday, December 8, 2023
First Race 6:15pm AEDT

Moonee Valley Racing Club will host another night meeting this Friday night, with eight competitive races set down for decision. Warm and dry weather is forecast for the rest of the week in Melbourne, so the track should firm up to a Good 4 rating by the time racing kicks off at 6:15pm. The rail will be in the +5m position for the entire circuit.

Best Bet at Moonee Valley: Setosa

At her second career start, the Phillip Stokes-trained Setosa went around at Ballarat on November 6 and broke her maiden in fine style. The three-year-old filly settled behind the speed and let down with a strong finishing burst to bring up a dominant 2.3-length victory. Zac Spain rode her on that day, and with him sticking aboard, expect this daughter of Capitalist to settle in a similar position from barrier five. With even luck, Setosa should be able to replicate that previous win and record back-to-back victories.

Best Bet

Race 3 – Silks#3 Setosa (5)

3yo Filly | T: Phillip Stokes | J: Zac Spain (57.5kg)

+270 with Picklebet

Next Best at Moonee Valley: One Last Kiss

After being narrowly beaten at Sandown over 2100m on her last start, One Last Kiss from the Dan O’Sullivan stable will drop back slightly in distance to 2040m fourth-up. This four-year-old mare has finished in the top two in all three runs this preparation, including a tight victory over 1600m at Ballarat on November 6. In her latest start, the daughter of Toronado settled behind the speed and let down in the final 200m to drive at Sea Speedwell, just missing in a photo finish. Harry Coffey has ridden this girl in her last three races, and with him sticking again, expect One Last Kiss to go one better.

Next Best

Race 4 – Silks#5 One Last Kiss (5)

4yo Mare | T: Dan O’Sullivan | J: Harry Coffey (58.5kg)

+420 with Dabble

Next Best Again at Moonee Valley: Moon And Back

Moon And Back returned from a 22-week spell with a credible third-place finish behind Scuderia and Mamaragan at this track and trip on November 3. Taking a lot of benefit from that tough run, she should be nearing peak fitness for this. From barrier two, John Allen will be able to settle midfield off the fence and get into the three-wide running line from the 400m mark. With even luck and clear galloping room in the straight, Moon And Back will be hitting the line hard.

Next Best Again

Race 7 – Silks#4 Moon And Back (2)

5yo Mare | T: Andrew Noblet | J: John Allen (60kg)

+500 with Bet365
