Some Names to Circle

RAPOSO is a shortening favourite for the 1600 metre Jeep Handicap. He opened at $2.70 with Bookmaker.com.au but continues to decrease in price. The 4 year old has had 3 victories and 2 seconds from 10 starts while he boasts a triumph at the track and won his only attempt at this distance in his last outing. Chad Schofield rides him 5 kilograms better at the weights and could be sitting on an easy winner. DIGITALISM is second in the betting, the track specialist has 3 wins at Moonee Valley, 2 over the mile. Jockey Craig Newitt will be aboard the 6 year old.

STREETS AWAY is at big odds despite 1 win form 1 start at this course and distance. He made a solid return at Flemington a fortnight ago and has a strong second up record with 4 victories and a second from 9 goes. The Peter Moody trained SINO EAGLE could be in the finish. She’s 1 from 1 at the Moonee Valley course but is untested against the boys and is unproven at 1600 metres.
