Best bets and expert tips for The Valley races Friday

News Corp form analyst Brad Waters looks at Friday night’s meeting at The Valley.


JUSTIFIABLE AWARD (Race 3 No.4 – $3.40)

Justifiable Award is racing in terrific form this time in with wins at both runs to earn a chance in town. She can notch a hat-trick on Friday.


BRISTLER (Race 4 No.8 – $5.50)

Bristler raced on the speed in a good effort at Flemington last time out. A similar effort will make him hard to run down around The Valley.

ANDOUILLETTE (Race 5 No.1 – $3.50)

Andouilette has been dominant in both wins this time in and will be fitter for those runs. He can make the transition to city racing.


ZOUPURRING (Race 7 No. 7 – $9.50)

Zoupurring was well backed and got the money in an easier race at Cranbourne. He’s back to 1200m and can show up at odds.



Jockey Jamie Kah has a book of seven rides at The Valley. HARMONETT (Race 1 No.10 – $26), TAKARA (Race 2 No.11 – $10), BORN HUSTLER (Race 3 No.8 – $5.50), SENEGALIA (Race 4 No.6 – $6), KAIDO (Race 5 No.11 – $10), SPICY MARGS (Race 6 No.6 – $5.50), HAZEL BABY (Race 8 No.8 – $10).
