Racing continues at Morphettville Parks this Saturday, where the feature race is the $100,000 Listed Birthday Cup (2000m). The weather is fine, the track is good (4) and the rail is out three metres from the 1000m-Winning Post; True for the remainder.
Race One (13:44) : Schweppes Handicap 1000m:
Back Me: 2 Call Me Curtis (Best Odds: $2.20) resumes here for Craig Curtis. She last ran on Pakenham Cup Day when winning a handy maiden race over 1200m, beating home a subsequent multiple and several placegetters, so the form reads well and he should improve big time with the preparation under the belt as well as an outstanding trial win here recently.
Big Danger: 1 Signor Gaetano (Best Odds: $1.75) has been given a three week freshen up since winning over this trip on the course proper, showing good toe to go most of the way. He will be up on speed again, and that is the place to be on this track.
Roughie: 4 Miss Murra (Best Odds: $13.00) in for third…but she won her maiden at $31+ first up. She is the best between her and Point Drummond. Look towards the two mentioned above.
Race Two (14:19) : UBET Handicap 1550m:
Back Me: 4 Battle Brewing (Best Odds: $2.80) had been bursting to win his maiden for some time, but he did it emphatically a fortnight ago over 1200m on the course proper. Lindop sticks and now he has that winning feeling, he can go right on with it.
Big Danger: 6 Mail It In (Best Odds: $4.80) is a 10 start maiden who ran over the mile last time out and tried hard but could only manage third to in form youngster Ask Me How I Know. Another that is knocking on the door and could well breakthrough here.
Roughie: 5 Times Past (Best Odds: $4.80) has had a couple of runs for Kylie Huxtable after formerly racing with Godolphin. He was awesome in winning at his SA debut before being unlucky in that Ask Me How I Know race mentioned above. Better luck here and he can threaten.
Race Three (14:54) : Hughes Chauffeured Limousines Handicap (70) 1000m:
Back Me: 2 Snip Of Magic (Best Odds: $9.00) comes back to SA after racing over the short course at Moonee Valley last time out when running a game fifth to Aunty Mo, beaten just under two lengths. Looks the leader here and should take some beating without doing too much to cross over.
Big Danger: 1 Calianco (Best Odds: $2.60) drops big time in grade after contesting stronger races in all three runs this time in, and has performed quite admirably. Rises 4kg in weight, which isn’t easy, but the big, big drop in depth suits.
Roughie: 8 Ardere (Best Odds: $51.00) was wide no cover throughout when racing here a fortnight back when finishing down the track behind Wilander Princess. She draws much better now, so she can run a much improved race at big odds.
Race Four (15:33) : UBET Adelaide Cup March 14 Handicap (70) 1250m:
Back Me: 2 Bay Road (Best Odds: $3.50) was heavily backed when racing over 1200m on the course proper three weeks back and led all the way to win impressively. Looks the leader again and Jones sticks. Hard to beat.
Big Danger: 7 Loqueteux (Best Odds: $4.80) is on the back up from last Saturday when racing over this 1300m here when racing a close up third to Rowdy Richard. Gate one is a big advantage for this horse because he won’t be as far back as normal.
Roughie: 1 Duckworth (Best Odds: $7.00) ran here a fortnight back and nearly fell, and virtually took no further part in the race. His win prior was excellent, and this looks a very winnable race.
Race Five (16:13) : Chad Hancock Cancer Foundation Handicap (90) 2400m:
Back Me: 2 Stimulatte (Best Odds: $3.30) kicked on very strongly to win last time out over 2500m on the course proper when fending off the challenge of the gritty stayer Tunes. Drop back in trip suits and Josh Cartwright has won numerous city races on this horse.
Big Danger: 3 Tunes (Best Odds: $3.60) loomed to beat Stimulate in that race mentioned above and he tried his heart out, as he always does, but the winner was too good. The horse loses nothing with Tourneur going aboard and his Parks track form is very good.
Roughie: 4 Celtic Prince (Best Odds: $12.00) was a bit unlucky not to win last time out at Moonee Valley when running fourth to Real Jazz, beaten two lengths. Returns back to SA and I am surprised to see him at the $13 mark.
Race Six (16:54) : Medallion Homes Handicap 1200m:
Back Me: 1 Riziz (Best Odds: $2.40) is the clear class runner engaged here, so he goes on top. He performed very well during the Spring, with the Penny Edition win being the highlight. Looks extremely well weighted after the claim, he flies fresh and excels on the track.
Big Danger: 3 Essay Raider (Best Odds: $6.00) hasn’t really set the world on fire this time in, with the latest outing being a seventh to Sirbible over this track/distance. Lindop jumps back on, and he should be at peak fitness now.
Roughie: 8 Fastcar (Best Odds: $13.00) was first up for over a year when racing in that Sirbible race mentioned above and worked home strongly without threatening to run fifth. He could race flat second up, which is the worry, but the run was too good to entirely dismiss.
Race Seven (17:33) : Holdfast Insurance Birthday Cup 2000m:
Back Me: 11 Tidy Prophet (Best Odds: $12.00) looks a great each-way bet IMO at the $13 mark. She finally got the win she deserved last Saturday over 1950m on the Parks track, aided by a lovely steer from Matty Neilson. Love the fact she is on the seven day back up, Neilson sticks, on the limit…gee she looks hard to beat.
Big Danger: 2 Gamblin’ Guru (Best Odds: $4.40) has been excellent in two runs this time in, both resulting in seconds, the latest over 1800m here when second to Kushadasi after sitting wide no cover throughout. Draws much better here and should be ready third up from a break.
Roughie: 1 Kushadasi (Best Odds: $7.00) was given a beaut steer from Paul Gatt to win that race mentioned above, sitting out the back and surging out wide to win impressively. He will only improve with fitness and the extra furlong, and Gatt sticks.
Race Eight (18:12) : MAC Drinking? GROW UP Handicap (75) 1550m:
Back Me: Very interested to see how 6 It’s Fred (Best Odds: $11.00) shapes up here. He has been the real find of the Summer in South Australia, winning three on the bounce in Vo Rogue-esque fashion, bowling along in front and keeping on keeping on. He trialled well last Friday, and I am tipping if he runs well here, which I am sure he will, he could be going to Melbourne to join stablemate Happy Trails.
Big Danger: 2 Boys Getaround Him (Best Odds: $5.50) ran over this trip on the course proper a fortnight back and was very impressive in winning, and he would have been a good thing beaten had he not won given he was held up badly in the straight. Neilson jumps on now and he likes racing on the Parks track.
Roughie: 8 On A Dream (Best Odds: $14.00) nearly fell over 1200m on the course proper a couple of weeks back when finishing well down the track behind Miss Adele. Suited up in trip now, draws well, Lindop sticks. Could be an improver.
BEST BET: Race Seven Number 11 Tidy Prophet
NEXT BEST: Race One Number 2 Call Me Curtis
VALUE: Race Three Number 2 Snip Of Magic
