The MSC Signs Hand­i­cap (2040m) at Moonee Val­ley tonight looks the per­fect race on pa­per for the Leon McDon­ald­trained WAG­ING WAR.

It was an ex­cel­lent run last start when specked at odds in the Group 1 Toorak Hand­i­cap, fin­ish­ing 3.65L off Land Of Plenty. He went around at Caulfield over 1800m on Tues­day morn­ing, clock­ing 2.12.58 and 37.45 for his last 600m split. He’s go­ing to be at his top on the day.

AS­SERTIVE PLAY rep­re­sents Stokes camp in the Listed Crock­ett Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Val­ley to­mor­row. It was a fair run last start and she’ll be spot on for this race. On Tues­day morn­ing, she worked with MU­SIC BAY (Group 2 Aquis Clas­sic) at Moonee Val­ley over 800m, clock­ing 51.70 and 24.27 for his last 400m hard up on the steel.

Last start win­ner CAUSE­WAY GIRL went 800m, home last 400m in 25.0 at Caulfield Tues­day morn­ing.

Re­cent Cran­bourne Cup win­ner OCTABELLO heads to Moonee Val­ley to con­test the Sch­weppes Mile.

He has come through that run nicely and wasn’t pushed hard on Tues­day, work­ing over 1200m in evens and last 400m in 24.73, with sta­ble­mate BINT CHERO­KEE.

It’s worth not­ing PRIZED ICON was fly­ing at Caulfield be­fore be­ing scratched last week and he is a big watch here.

MISS AD­MI­RA­TION will rep­re­sent the Price sta­ble in the Moonee Val­ley Gold Cup (2500m) and is over the odds my opin­ion.

She made ground late in the Her­bert Power and will con­test this in tip top or­der.

On Tues­day morn­ing, she worked at Moonee Val­ley over 1600m in 1.56.06 and come home in 26.16 for her last 400m. Take her on both totes.

A crack­ing gal­lop at Moonee Val­ley on Tues­day morn­ing has HOUTZEN’s con­nec­tions brim­ming with con­fi­dence go­ing into the Group 1 Manikato Stakes un­der lights tonight.

She didn’t have much luck last start and gets her chance here from bar­rier 4.

She was clocked over 800m in 50.56 and a slick 23.21 last 400m.

All sys­tems go!

The Stokes pair of MORE THAN EX­CEED (Red An­chor Stakes) and NODOUBTABOUTIT, who will line up as some sort of hope in the 55 Sec­ond Chal­lenge un­der lights tonight, worked very well to­gether when part­ner­ing up on Tues­day morn­ing on the Moonee Val­ley.
