The Wolf’s best had no luck first up at Moonee Valley. Here are Thursday’s racing tips.


Scream Dream had no chance first up at Moonee Valley after blowing the start and getting held up around but ran on strongly nonetheless. The Shamus Award filly showed plenty in her first campaign including being competitive with the likes of Rainbiel. From barrier one tonight, she should be awfully hard to hold out.
Recommended Price: $3.00
Confidence Level: 4.5/5


Going with another debutant here in the form of Arctic Stone. It was hard not to be impressed with her recent jumpout where she was competitive with a number of metro grade horses despite being put under very little pressure. Lady Cumberland has shown good speed in a recent jumpout but Arctic Stone can stalk her and hopefully prove too strong late.
Recommended Price: $4.00
Confidence Level: 3.5/5

The Midnight Shift has clearly come across from NZ as a jumping prospect but it would not surprise if he was able to be more than competitive here. The five year old’s flat form at home isn’t great, but he jumped out impressively recently. This is Jamie Kah’s only ride of the day and it is a very winnable race. 
Recommended Price: $3.50
Confidence Level: 3.5/5

Dixon Bay was very disappointing first up but has been back to the trials since and looked much better. Interestingly he wears blinkers for the first time here – gear he did not carry in the trial – and that could certainly spark further improvement. Ideally drawn, he is worth consideration at a nice price, given his sound overall record of two wins and a second from four starts.
Recommended Price: $12/3.40
Confidence Level: 3/5

New Choice looks over the odds here at Pakenham. The Vidotto/Beasy trained gelding put three in a row together last campaign and the form out of those races has been strong. First up at Moonee Valley he had no luck at all when covering plenty of ground but stuck on well. He looks better suited here at a big price.
Recommended Price: $13/3.80
Confidence Level: 3/5
