The Group 2 2009 Carlyon Stakes at Moonee Valley tonight to be honest… is the first race since December that has really, really interested me. Lets be honest, the Carlyon Stakes field of 2009 is an absolute bloody cracker!!! I mean come on El Segundo and Light Fantastic first up, racing against in form horses like Lucky Secret (a proven Moonee Valley performer) and Mind your head; what a thrill!!!
With such quality horses racing first up, the form in this will be harder to read than Braille, and imo as wide open as Paris Hiltons legs 😛 I’m going to have to go with proven MV performer Lucky Secret. From the 1 barrier with Newitt aboard he should jump straight to the front, and around the tight Moonee Valley track, I just don’t think any of this lot will catch him.
