Ladbrokes Friday Night Lights Preview – 15th January

Ladbrokes Friday Night Lights is back and we are set for another huge night of racing at The Valley.

We have analysed every single race on the card and our complete Ladbrokes Friday Night Lights tips can be found below.

Race 1 - 6:30pm

All-Star Mile On Sale Monday Handicap (1600m)

Yukon is a lightly-raced gelding that still has plenty of upside.

He won on debut at Wyong in impressive fashion and he backed that up with a couple of good efforts at Kembla Grange and Ladbrokes Park Sandown.

Will Price will be able to ride him aggressively from the inside barrier draw and he will give his rivals something to catch.

3 Units Yukon


Race 2 - 7:00pm

MVRC Membership On Sale Now Plate (1600m)

This is one of the most open races of the night and there are a host of winning chances.

Stella De La Realm showed good speed on debut and Michael Poy might be able to control this race, which doesn’t have a huge amount of speed on paper.

I am happy to gamble on the lightly-raced mare in what is such an open race.

1 Unit Stella De La Realm


Race 3 - 7:30pm

Cliff Wood Memorial Plate (1200m)

This is another competitive race and it is a contest I don’t want to get too heavily involved in.

Aminatu will need some luck in running from the wide barrier draw, but she does have early speed and Damien Thornton will be able to ride her aggressively.

She was tough at Cranbourne last start and should take good improvement from that performance.

Race 4 - 8:00pm

MSC Signs Handicap (3000m)

Peter Robl has sent Power Of Attorney to Melbourne for this contest and he does look well-placed to record back-to-back wins.

He beat a stronger field than this to win at Randwick last start and gives the impression that the step-up to 3000 metres will suit.

The wide barrier draw isn’t ideal, but he does have the benefit of Damien Oliver in the saddle and he should be able to slot in during the run.

Race 5 - 8:30pm

Ladbrokes 55 Second Challenge Heat 10 (955m)

This is a strong edition of the Ladbrokes 55 Second Challenge and it is another contest where there are a host of winning chances.

I am interested to see how The Mobot performs in the Ladbrokes 55 Second Challenge.

She started her racing career with four straight wins and on her best form I think that she does have a genuine edge over the rest of this field.

The Uncle Mo mare has generally raced in stronger company than this and she maps to get a lovely run right on the speed from barrier four.

1.5 Units The Mobot


Race 6 - 9:00pm

Visit Living Legends Handicap (2040m)

There isn’t a huge amount of speed in this contest and Damien Oliver should be able to find the front fairly comfortably on Dance Date.

Her first-up effort at Ladbrokes Park Sandown was excellent and a poor jump cost her last start.

I am confident that she is a better mare than that effort suggests and this looks like a nice race for her.

Race 7 - 9:30pm

ADAPT Australia Handicap (1500m)

Glassey Miss returned to the races with a classy win at Warrnambool and she has now recorded four wins from her ten race starts.

She simply doesn’t produce a poor effort and the scary thing for her rivals is that she still has the upside to improve.

The Glass Harmonium mare makes her own luck right on the speed and she will be in the finish.

1.5 Units Glassey Miss


Race 8 - 10:00pm

Seppelt Wines Handicap (1200m)

There is plenty of early speed in this contest and it shapes as one of the most interesting races of the day.

Torched is a horse with x-factor and I am happy to have a gamble on him at the current price.

He has the speed to burn and Will Price will be able to ride him aggressively from the wide barrier draw.
