The meeting will review another active year featuring the popular Anzac Day and Deniliquin Cup fixtures.
There will be light refreshments at the conclusion of business.
Two Moonee Valley winners seem destined for Group success in the autumn.
Three year-old Behemoth at his fourth start outclassed his rivals while two year-old Brooklyn Hustle produced a stunning performance on debut.
Behemoth followed an Adelaide Maiden win with a 31⁄ lengths margin in a Benchmark 70.
His 1:10.28 was the fastest of three 1200m races.
Brooklyn Hustle began slowly and swept past nine rivals in the last 300m to score by two lengths in the Plate (1000m) for two year-olds.
Plans are for the filly to have a brief spell before being prepared for the Blue Diamond Stakes.
A Wagga win in August paved the way for High Mode’s dominant win in the $292,000 Jerico Cup (4600m) at Warrnambool on Sunday.
The Benchmark 90 race for Australia and New Zealand bred horses celebrated the 100th anniversary of Australian Light Horse men racing over three miles at Jerico in Palestine.
High Mode qualified for Sunday’s marathon when successful in the Riverina Cup over 3800m.
Follow - Behemoth: Four starts for two wins and highly impressive at Moonee Valley.
Coming winners: Brutus Maximus, former Perth four year-old, resumed with Sandown third at his fifth start.
Vainstream has won three from eight starts and began slowly when third at Cranbourne.
Demolition, a Caulfield winner in July, resumed with second at Moonee Valley.
They race at Moulamein tomorrow.
