Shumpty’s Punt: Friday night best bet

It is Australian Stakes night at Mooney Valley tonight and I am quietly confident that it is going to be a good night Glen Boss.  My best bet of the night is the Boss mount in Race 5 Maroon Bay (Number 4).  it has been absolutely smashed in the early betting and I think that early money is right on the money (pardon the pun).

Best Bet: Mooney Valley Race 5 Number 4 Maroon Bay

As always: good luck and good punting and please gamble responsibly.
