AJ Moir Stakes Betting

The Group 1 A.J. Moir Stakes is a weight-for-age sprint race contested on a Friday night under the lights at The Valley in late September.

Traditionally held on the Friday night prior to the AFL Grand Final, the short-distance feature runs over 1000m and was elevated to its current elite level status for the first time in 2013.

Many legendary sprinters have won the A.J. Moir Stakes over the years including Manikato (1982), Schillaci (1992), the undefeated superstar Black Caviar (2010, 2011) and brilliant Queensland galloper Buffering (2012, 2014, 2015) who took the race out three times.

The A.J. Moir Stakes serves as a nice Melbourne Spring Racing Carnival lead-up to other Group 1 sprint races including the VRC Sprint Classic run down the famous ‘Straight Six’ at Flemington during the Melbourne Cup Carnival.

Which Horse Will Win The  AJ Moir Stakes in 2020

The best way to pick who will win the AJ Moir Stakes is to take into account the form, assess the barriers, consider the weight the horse will carry, among other factors.

Additional form factors to take into consideration include: 

  • The Valley: Moonee Valley Racecourse features a notoriously tight circuit and horses proven at the track make the best bet in the Moir.
  • Short Distance Specialists: With the race run over just 1000m the Moir is best suited to gallopers with a good record at the distance with even 1200m horses sometimes finding the Moir too short.

AJ MOIR STAKES FAVOURITES

The early AJ Moir Stakes 2020 favourites include first-up specialist Fabergino, McEwen Stakes winner Bella Vella and Godolphin star Trekking.
