An eight race program has been assembled for Morphettville this Saturday. The weather is overcast, the track is good (4) and the rail is out nine metres from the 1200m-Winning Post; Out six metres for the remainder.

Race 1. (13:32) TAB Handicap (70) 1200m

Back Me

2 Poet’s Landing (Bet Now: $1.75) for me. Really good looking prospect for Will Clarken who debuted at the Twilight meeting here a couple of weeks ago where he got into the 1/1 spot under Jamie Kah and once he popped out three wide on the turn, he put them away really quickly and won like a good horse. A really good horse. Confident he can measure up against some nice types.

Danger

1 Ocean King (Bet Now: $4.50) is a Darren Weir trained three year old who looks progressive. Solid debut at Echuca behind The Running Man in a race which has produced two winners. He then raced on the bog at Horsham where he was Winx odds and won accordingly, bolting up. Harder here, but I like these progressive Weir runners who come to South Australia.

Long Shot

6 Yulong Star (Bet Now: $4.40) looks a talented filly for Tony McEvoy who ran in a maiden here during the Twilight meeting where she was never really looking like she was going to pick up the stablemate Vietti but she lifted late under Caserta to nab it on the peg. Bit more depth here and she isn’t push button, but looks to have talent and shouldn’t be ignored.

Race 2. (14:07) 13CABS Handicap (82) 2035m

Back Me

7 Reset Me I’m Wild (Bet Now: $5.50) is the best horse in the race but it’s just hard to know where he is at. He was dreadful here last Saturday, the market said he had three legs and ran accordingly. Vet found nothing but the stable have elected to back him up. Obviously must have pleased the stable to go around again so soon, and at his best, I think he’s better than these.

Danger

4 Aagas (Bet Now: $3.00) is a Ryan Balfour trained gelding who has been around the mark better than Josh Hazlewood. Was rewarded for his consistency with a narrow but strong win a fortnight back over 2100m at Gawler (Metro) under a lovely steer from Jamie Kah. I reckon 2100m+ sees him out so slightly back in trip will suit and he has to be respected against these.

Long Shot

5 Costa Lante (Bet Now: $16.00) is a Sue Jaensch trained mare who did a great job to win the Bordertown Cup last time. Lorensini made the move before the turn to get her near the leaders with momentum and she was probably out of petrol tickets with 200m to go but she lifted late to get the win. Seems to be a 2000m specialist and overall, this race looks thin.

Race 3. (14:47) AAMI Handicap (70) 1529m

Back Me

I think you have to believe what you saw when it came to 2 Yulong September (Bet Now: $2.60) and his simply stunning win on debut at Sandown. He looked in a hopeless spot at the top of the straight but once Ethan Brown gave him clear air, gee he lengthened hard and won impressively. Extra trip looks perfect and he ran 33.5 for his final 600m, finale speed that is lengths better than these. Just needs to handle the trip over, clear air and he’ll be winning.

Danger

1 Shark In The Water (Bet Now: $3.30) is a Hayes/Dabernig trained filly who is putting together a tidy little record. Ran over this track/distance last time and I think put the win down to getting a very soft time of it on speed and dashing well enough late. More depth here, not sure she can hold out the Weir runner, but will be on speed and perhaps dictating.

Long Shot

3 Wentworth (Bet Now: $11.00) is a son of Eurozone for Mick Price who had jumped out well prior to debuting at Werribee where he was wide no cover on speed and despite doing the work in the run, he finished best and proved too good. Off that, he should have no trouble up to 1500m and stable should always be respected when they come over to South Australia.

Race 4. (15:27) James Boags Handicap (82) 1200m

Back Me

8 Columbia (Bet Now: $2.25) gets another chance. Hard luck story two back at Ballarat behind Bel Sonic before going to Gawler (Metro) last time and I thought Pannell rode a very poor race on him. Just waited far too long to get going in a race dominated by those on speed. Did a great job to get as close as he did. Great record here at Morphettville and with weight relief, I’m keen on his chances.

Danger

1 So You Too (Bet Now: $5.00) is on the quick back up for the Macdonald/Gluyas team after racing in the Christmas Handicap last Saturday where he was far from disgraced I thought behind impressive winner Princess Of Queens. Like him on the quick turnaround and back in grade, plus the claim for the in form Lucinda Doodt certainly sees him well in at the weights.

Long Shot

2 Arkham Knight (Bet Now: $9.50) has to be rated highly against these. He comes through the City Of Marion where he got back in the run but finished off well against the tempo in a race won by Illustrious Lad. This is one of the easier races he has contested in some time and that was his first run in six weeks so there should be room to improve and is a proven weight carrier.

Race 5. (16:07) Darley Handicap (Class 2) 1100m

Back Me

2 Crown Fontein (Bet Now: $3.40) looks a good prospect for John Hickmott. Good resumption over 900m at Murray Bridge behind No Ties before stepping up to 1000m and despite being challenged, he responded and in the end he drew right away to win by five lengths. Think he’s above above average and I’d be surprised if he didn’t run well against this lot.

Danger

3 Good Luck Chuck (Bet Now: $3.90) is a lightly raced seven year old for Kristi Evans who was hard in the market when resuming here at the Twilight meeting and he loomed large to win but just found one better in Miss Labelle, who had hard race fitness under the belt and a good time of it on speed. Good second up record and this race doesn’t look that much harder.

Long Shot

1 Florid (Bet Now: $6.00) is a former Godolphin galloper who had his first run for John Macmillan over 1000m here on November 17 where he was completely unwanted in betting and ran accordingly in a disappointing effort behind Kabini. Form has been good from that race and I think he’ll improve with that under the belt. Just want to see what the market does.

Race 6. (16:47) Hughes Limousines Handicap (64) 1600m

Back Me

He’s a bit hit and miss but the best version of 1 Naseeb (Bet Now: $2.70) is certainly good enough to beat these. Sue Murphy trains this gelding, who was quite plain two back at Naracoorte before racing at Stawell in a harder race where a lovely steer from Luke Williams saw the four year old prove too good. Got room to improve and always respect the stable when they come to town.

Danger

3 Polar Vortex (Bet Now: $5.50) is a model of consistency for the Travis Doudle stable who is bursting to win a race but just keeps finding one or two better on the day, the last run being at Balaklava when a narrow second to Euro Gold. Has run well in town before and this looks a thin race, so he really only has to maintain his recent endeavour to be around the mark.

Long Shot

5 Pass The Glass (Bet Now: $12.00) is the unknown. Handy mare for Sue Jaensch who was outstanding first up at Stawell before being given six weeks off and racing at the Bool where she was awful behind Vellastar, and the market said she had no hope. She has shown before she can run well in town and this isn’t the strongest race going around. Potentially a sharp improver.

Race 7. (17:27) Holdfast Insurance Handicap (70) 1200m

Back Me

2 Danger Deal (Bet Now: $2.00) for me. He has been a handy galloper since day one but had only registered the one win. Tipped out and resumed at the Twilight meeting here where I thought Stubby gave the four year old an absolute peach and the horse was just too classy for his rivals in a Class One, with the gelding being a proven city performer without winning. I think he can repeat the dose.

Danger

5 Marina (Bet Now: $5.00) is two weeks between runs for the John Hickmott team after running over 1200m at Gawler (Metro) where he settled near the speed and battled away well in defeat in an on pace dominated affair won by Pamela Joy. I reckon he’s wanting a tad further, but if they go hard in front, I’m sure he’ll be strong at the end of this 1200m contest.

Long Shot

4 Street Life (Bet Now: $7.00) is a Karen Byrnes trained gelding who I liked at odds last time at Gawler (Metro) and he looked the winner when he loomed up to hit the front then the nag itself Alaskan Jade decided to be genuine, savage the line and nab him on the peg. Still haven’t recovered. That was his first run in six weeks though so there should be room for improvement.

Race 8. (18:05) Schweppes Handicap (70) 1529m

Back Me

2 Pretty Glass (Bet Now: $1.60) looks the good thing on the program. Very progressive mare for Sue Jaensch who was excellent first up at Warrnambool before going to Gawler (Metro) where she was a hard fav and under a lovely ride from Emily Finnegan, she drew clear and won with a touch of arrogance on the line. Can only see upside with her and should be winning.

Danger

1 Tahnee Tiara (Bet Now: $5.50) is a Peter Hardacre trained mare who has been around the mark for a while now and should be respected back to mares grade. Ran at Murray Bridge last time where she had the good sit just off the speed and tried hard as she always does when third to Wanted By All. Creeping up in the weights, but she’s tough and rarely runs a bad race.

Long Shot

4 Exalted Lauretta (Bet Now: $8.00) is somewhat of an iron mare for Grant Young who has had a couple runs back from a near month freshen up. Just ran out of puff two back behind France’s Boy before racing on Bordertown Cup Day when wide no cover on speed yet fought on really well when third to Splash Some Cash. Think she’s a provincial class mare but will be on speed and fighting.
