2021 Australia Stakes: Tips And Race Preview
Godolphin holds the aces in the Tips and Race Preview for the 2021 Australia Stakes at Moonee Valley on Friday night and Viridine is short at $1.85.
Tavisan has good early speed and can set a genuine tempo. VIRIDINE (3) is a much travelled galloper who had good form down in Melbourne during the year. Stats at The Valley may not read well, but they were both over 1000m and he is much better placed at this trip. Should go close.
STREETS OF AVALON (1) returns from a short break after racing in tougher company during the spring. Yet to win first-up, but small field at weight-for-age suits and a forward showing is expected. WIDGEE TURF (2) is coming off an unsuccessful spring campaign. Has loads of ability and stable is in excellent form. Expected to give this a shake while fresh.
TAVISAN (5) can be a difficult proposition to follow but he does race well here as a rule with a win and three placings from five runs. On his best figures he is too dangerous to ignore.
