Moir Stakes 2022 Field & Odds

Moir Stakes 2022 Best Bet - Extremely Lucky

Although a beaten favourite in the Carlyon at this track and trip last start, I am not convinced that he handled the heavy surface all that well, and although we are getting some rain on Friday, this track will not be any worse than soft.

Extremely Lucky has a potent turn-of-foot as he showed in his first-up win in the Lightning Stakes, and being kept fresh for this race looks perfect to keep that explosiveness in him.

Set to peak in this race all prep, this son of Extreme Choice gets his chance to shine on the big stage, and given the spruiks he has always had, tonight is where he lives up to them.

Moir Stakes 2022 Next Best Bet - Paulele

This is the horse who can go to the next level coming into this race off back of a Brisbane prep where he finished second in two Group One races.

Paulele was a dominant winner on debut at this track, so the Moonee Valley box does not need to be ticked, while he has also trialled up twice in prep for this.

Now a four-year-old bull, it is a question of whether he needs a run or two at the races to get his fitness up to scratch, but all reports from the stable are that he is ready to fire.

Moir Stakes 2022 Value Bet - Coolangatta

This filly was a touch disappointing in the McEwen when a short priced favourite, beaten fair and square into third.

Coolangatta carries the same weight once again given that she is a three-year-old, so 8.5kg off of her main rivals and this time gets the luxury of barrier one.

Expect the stable to have her at her peak for this race after last start's disappointing effort, wound up and ready to sustain that sprint for a bit longer, so she will be leading and the one who is in front on the bend.
