Race 1. (13:16) Fleurieu Milk Company (rs0mw) 1400m
I’ve got time for 3 Bottom Line (Bet Now: $3.30). He looks a progressive type that should appreciate a fast run 1200m and will be strong late that if that eventuates. He tried hard a few weeks back but was no match for stablemate Quietly Discreet. If it’s a sit/sprint, no chance, but if the tempo is genuine, he comes right into play.
2 Renegade (Bet Now: $2.25) is on the seven day back up for the McEvoy camp after racing last Saturday. He was three and four wide no cover for the trip yet kept coming and was game in defeat I thought behind stablemate The Difference. Think that form reads okay for a race like this. Will just need luck in the run from the draw.
1 Bramfield (Bet Now: $5.00) is a ripping mare that is getting towards having too high of a rating to race on her home track at Port Lincoln. Resumed over 1000m on the home track there and worked home strongly when a close up fourth to Artful Rambler, who ran well in town the start prior, so the form reads well and she has a fab second up record.
Race 2. (13:51) Dominant Handicap (rs0mw) 1400m
3 You Hadme At Hello (Bet Now: $1.70) should love the rise to 1400m. Team McEvoy trained mare that resumed over 1200m on the course proper here two weeks ago where she got back in the run and finished off strongly when second to Beeokay. Will love the rise to 1400m and hopefully can sit a pair or two closer in the run.
6 Cashin Chex (Bet Now: $3.90) is still a maiden, but overall, this is an awful 0MW race and he’s right in this. Provided of course he runs up to his first up effort, which was an absolute beauty from two weeks ago in a maiden here when back near last in the run and closing off with real purpose late behind Deep Speed. He’ll go close if he produces that effort here.
5 Monraaj (Bet Now: $16.00) should be suited on a firmer track. Ryan Balfour trained gelding that found a very wet track last time out at Gawler. Loomed to win, but when asked for the big efforts, his wheels started to spin, so be forgiving of that effort. Given the lack of depth engaged here, I think he’s a live threat against these.
Race 3. (14:26) Terry Howe Printing Mdn 1000m
Market will be the main guide here, but I want to take a chance with 7 Echoes In Eternity (Bet Now: $3.70). When I first looked up her name, couldn’t find a jumpout, but you have to go back to September 11, Heat 4 at Murray Bridge to find her, and she won the jumpout with some good mid race change up speed. If she can overcome the gate, she’ll take some beating for an in form stable.
13 Siyaadeh (Bet Now: $3.90) looks one of the hardest to beat. Daughter of Written Tycoon for the McEvoy that comes here off the back of a strong trial win last week at Gawler, albeit the margin was narrow, but she looked to go about her business well enough. The inside gate is such an advantage for her at the 1000m start.
11 Naleigh (Bet Now: $7.50) looks the other key winning hope. She resumed at Murray Bridge when back near last in the run and never really a winning threat, but loved the way she closed off late in a good effort. Blinkers go on to sharpen her up and senior jock takes over, so keen to see how she goes against this lot.
Race 4. (15:05) Aami (bm64) 1550m
Fitter and up to 1550m are two big ticks for the Team McEvoy trained 6 Deep Force (Bet Now: $7.50). He resumed over 1200m on the course proper here two weeks ago where he was back near last in the run and never really a winning threat, but liked the way he finished his race off late, suggesting a rise in trip will suit, and that is what he gets here.
4 Mr Stylish (Bet Now: $5.00) is a winning chance for sure. Phillip Stokes trained gelding that was wide no cover last time out at Gawler but loomed large to win when Crowther pushed the button. Just the last 50-100m, his run peaked and he tired late. Convinced he’s going well and a win here wouldn’t shock at all. Hard to beat.
2 Cannot Be Serios (Bet Now: $6.00) can bounce back here. Ran on the Parks track a few weeks back when near the speed throughout and tried hard, but was a beaten horse at the top of the straight and faded late behind Pearl Bandit. His best is good enough to figure here, but he’s a hard horse to catch, so I’d say one for multiples.
Race 5. (15:45) Furphy Hcp (c2) 1000m
9 Fearless Vision (Bet Now: $2.40) deserves another chance. Very sharp win first up at this track/distance before going to the 1100m on the course proper two weeks ago when backed as if unbeatable, but she was very disappointing in the straight, not letting down at all like she did fresh. I’ll give her another chance to bounce back.
2 Harpuna (Bet Now: $4.00) is a Peter Hardacre trained four year old that resumes. This gelding hasn’t raced since May 23 when a solid third at Murray Bridge a then in form Rock Harbour. Impressive winner on debut/first up last prep and thought the recent jumpout was more than encouraging, so keen to see what the market does.
5 Sanbuck (Bet Now: $13.00) is big odds here. He’s a handy four year old from Victoria who brings with him some solid provincial form, including a last start fifth to a Saturday class horse in Wicklow Town. 1000m fresh suggests he might need the run, but in terms of value, he is clearly it, so watch the market and see what it does.
Race 6. (16:26) Chris Young's 50th (rs2ly) 1950m
I reckon a fairer track here will suit the Team McEvoy trained 9 Allusion (Bet Now: $6.00). This will be said a lot in this preview, but be very forgiving of his run on the Parks track three weeks ago. It was a meeting where you had to be either on speed or near the rail. Those back and forced to make a run wide pretty much had no hope. Allusion was in the latter category and did a good job in defeat behind Darlamax. He’s hard to beat on a much fairer track.
2 Dr Dependable (Bet Now: $4.50) is trying hard for the Macdonald/Gluyas stable. Not far off a win I’d suggest. He ran on the course proper here two weeks ago and he did try hard, but Somerset Maughan had it way too good in front and he spanked them. Dr Dependable is going well and a win I don’t think is too far away.
6 Jaguary (Bet Now: $16.00) is one I could see as a sneaky knockout hope. Travis Doudle trained gelding that ran last Wednesday at Penola and with a 60kg impost, he battled away pretty well I thought when second to proven city performer Campobasso. He’s been out of form for some time, but the last start was encouraging.
Race 7. (17:01) Tab Create Your Calendar-rs1ly 1250m
6 Mysticano (Bet Now: $11.00) is a Darren Magro trained eight year old that can run an improved race at odds. He ran over 1100m on the course proper here two weeks ago in a much stronger race than this and I thought he was far from disgraced in defeat behind Kayseri. Little while between wins but I give him a knockout chance.
5 Miss Jane (Bet Now: $3.90) is five weeks between runs for the Seater stable since racing over 1100m here where she did work to get across on speed but gave a really good kick under Sophie Logan. Just couldn’t quite finish the job when beaten a lip by Thompson’s Reward. That form reads well enough for a race like this.
4 Good Therapy (Bet Now: $6.00) could be worth a speck here at a price. Had his first run for Heather Lehmann on September 19 here and worked to the line pretty well I thought when a close up fourth to Thompson’s Reward. He has good city form from Melbourne when trained by Clinton McDonald, so he deserves a crack here.
Race 8. (17:41) Leconfield Viddora Final-bm76 1300m
David Jolly has 5 Trip (Bet Now: $3.20) flying and she should prove hard to beat here. I think you have to pour some form of cold water on her win on the Parks track three weeks ago given she had the A1 run in transit with the track pattern in her corner. She duly used it to advantage and bolted in. Harder here, but deserves a crack.
2 Hearty Lass (Bet Now: $6.00) is on the seven day back up for the John Hyam team after an impressive win on the course proper here last Saturday. Put into a lovely spot just off the speed under Caitlin Jones before getting the inside split and in a driving go, finished best. Harder here, but she’s plenty of room for improvement.
1 Pretty Glass (Bet Now: $19.00) comes through the race last Saturday won by Hearty Lass. She was having her first run for Jess Giles and ran a beauty I thought despite being one of the rank outsiders when a close up fifth. She has class/quality when right and that resumption was more than encouraging. She goes in all multiples.
Race 9. (18:21) Accolade Wines (bm72) 1000m
2 Dimaggio (Bet Now: $2.40) is a leading chance here. Team McEvoy trained gelding that was resuming over 1000m a few weeks ago on the Parks track where he was chasing throughout and tried very hard, but couldn’t quite finish it off and had to settle for a close up second to Saorsa. He’ll come on from that and is hard to beat.
3 Viduka (Bet Now: $2.35) is a Ryan Balfour trained gelding that has been kept on the fresh side, having not raced since September 12 when leading and giving a really good kick. It took a brilliant finale from subsequent Thousand Guineas placegetter Instant Celebrity to get past him. That form has to read well for a race like this.
11 Akkacan (Bet Now: $18.00) is a bludger but I think there a couple of positives that I think can see him run a much improved race. Firstly, the Blinkers are back on to sharpen him, try and get some form of improvement out of him. Next positive is a senior rider taking over. He just hasn’t fired successfully under apprentices. A strong senior rider could spark improvement.
