Nudge Bar looks to be a touch of overs in betting ahead of Race 5 at Moe today ($15 at publish), and we can have an each-way play.
The Peter Gelagotis-trained gelding finished at the tail of the field over 1400m at Ballarat when resuming, but he was far better when fourth over a mile at Mornington last time out.
He is a horse that tends to improve noticeably with a couple of starts under his belt and he’ll get some relief in the weights today under Tianni Chapman.
Rising Sphere hasn’t been seen at the races since February, but he is a proven fresh performer and boasts a class edge over the lion’s share of these rivals.
The Exosphere gelding returned to the races last time for a close-up second behind Dickin Medal at Geelong and recorded an impressive win in Wednesday company at Sandown; ultimately ending his prep at Flemington.
He returned an eye-catching effort in a Tatura trial last week and looks ready to strike.
Charm Offensive has stripped fitter for two starts back this time and is ready to win at Kembla Grange this afternoon.
The Dalghar gelding finished fifth, beaten just over two lengths here when fresh, and he was last seen filling the minors behind Already Blessed in BM68 company.
This route looks to be his best trip and he might not get a better opportunity to win.
Rambeau strikes a very winnable race at Moe this afternoon.
The Brazen Beau colt has been a good horse for the Busuttin & Young yard since making his debut, and he returned to the races this time to break his maiden at Pakenham.
He has returned two competitive efforts in the wake of that performance, filling the minors in consecutive Wednesday races at Sandown.
He’s rock-hard fit and is drawn to receive a lovely run.
