The Valley - Race 3 7:30pm AEDT
Bella Martini was beaten as favourite last start at Ladbrokes Park, but there was still a lot to like about that performance. She is a consistent mare that is yet to produce a poor run during her racing career to date and if she performs at anywhere near her best form she will be tough to beat in what is not the strongest race.

Our Luca was stepped up to 1300 metres last start and clearly didn’t handle it. I like the fact that they have dropped him back to 1000 metres and her win over this distance at Mornington was nothing short of outstanding. He should have no issues taking up the running from barrier six and he will be tough to beat.

Camila Lucinda won at The Valley last Friday night and I like the fact that she is on the quick back-up. Stephanie Thornton took her straight to the front a week ago and there is little doubt that the in-form apprentice will employ similar tactics this evening. This isn’t the strongest edition of the Ladbrokes 55 Second Challenge and she will give her rivals something to catch.

There has been an avalanche of early money for He’s A Moral, but he is still a value bet in what is not the strongest race. He was given a poor ride by Dean Yendall last start and he got way too far back before he rocketed home in the concluding stages. With even luck in running he can finish over the top of his rivals.
