The Money Trail – Moonee Valley, March 17
Racing and Sports finds the best-backed runners in early betting on Friday’s meeting at Moonee Valley.
Explosive Witness (Race 1) opened as an equal favourite but now stands alone at the head of the market at $2.40 having firmed more than a point. The Star Witness two-year-old debuts for Greg Eurell off a close third in a recent trial and the market push must be respected.
Wangaala (Race 4) is now well into the red at $1.70 having firmed close to a dollar since betting commenced. The filly bolted in by 5.5L in a maiden last time and while she takes a step up in grade looks hard to beat again off that effort.
Ruthven (Race 7) opened at each way odds but is now second pick in the market at $3.30 after tightening more than two points. He missed by a nose at Pakenham last time so should be peaking third up and showed his ability when a nose second in the Sandown Guineas last spring.
Exocet (Race 8) has taken over at the head of the market at $4 after shortening a point-and-a-half. She resumes after showing good promise last campaign, winning two in a row and running fourth in a Group 2.
