Goddess to double up at The Valley

The concluding race on Moonee Valley’s eight race card is a competitive looking 1200m Benchmark 64 contest. The scratchings of Cobblestone Way and Rossman means a field of ten are set to do battle on a good 4 surface.

Pretty Tavi made an impressive start to her racing career when saluting by in excess of four lengths in a 1200m maiden at Mornington on debut in October. Anthony and Sam Freedman’s charge disappointed when encountering a wet track for the first time when ninth over this track and trip on a heavy 8 surface subsequently however. It’s worth overlooking that effort given the filly encountered issues with the bit that day.

Freshened since that effort she returns to the track on the back of a barrier trial triumph at Cranbourne earlier this month. Our Goddess is preferred for the Clinton McDonald team in this contest with the filly having shown up well in four starts to date.

Runner-up in all three starts in her first spell the filly broke her maiden at the fourth attempt when taking a 1000m maiden on a good 4 track at Mornington last month. Racing first up on that occasion the daughter of Shalaa finished strongly on that occasion and looks ready for a return to 1200m.

Quraysha to score at Canterbury

The hat-trick seeking Brudenell is expected to have his supporters ahead of the eighth race on the Canterbury card. The race in question is a 1250m Benchmark 72 contest with a soft 6 surface forecast. Trained by Kris Lees the gelding completed a double when winning a Benchmark 64 event over 1000m on a heavy 8 track at Wyong last month.

Claimer Dylan Gibbons mount tackles a stronger contest here with Quraysha the pick for the Ciaron Maher and David Eustace team. The four-year-old filly has won twice already this spell including in impressive fashion in a Benchmark 64 event over 1200m at Moonee Valley three starts back.

Followed that up with a close second at Benchmark 70 level over the same track and trip prior to a below par effort when fifth in a similar contest. The daughter of I Am Invincible handles wet tracks and is selected to return to winning ways with Tim Clark up.

Missile to register Sunshine Coast success

Mishani Missile is a dual winner at this venue this spell including when delivering a near three-and-a-half-length victory in a Class 1 over this track and trip earlier this month. The Kelly Purdy-trained gelding was tackling this trip when delivering an impressive victory on a good 4 track on that occasion.

The Show A Heart gelding was putting a disappointing seventh over 1710m at Ipswich behind him that day. Jockey James Orman boasts an impressive 26% strike-rate (60/231) at Sunshine Coast in the last year and keeps the ride having been on board for the picks two previous victories here.

The wetter track forecast should be no issue for the three-year-old having shown up well on heavy tracks in his first spell. Well drawn in three here Mishani Missile looks capable of recording a third career win.
