The Parks track at Morphettville will play host to a seven race card on Monday. The weather is fine, the track is good (4) and the rail is in the true position for the entire circuit.
Race 1. (15:06) Fleurieu Milk Company (bm68) 1550m
1 Frankie Pinot (Bet Now: $3.00) should prove hard to beat back to SA. He ran over 1700m on Geelong Cup Day in an on pace dominated affair and stuck on pretty well in defeat, although he had his chance behind Serengeti. That race was much stronger than what he faces here, and on prior form, does look the pony to bet on.
Third up now and getting towards peak fitness, looks a lovely race for the Team McEvoy trained gelding 2 Deep Force (Bet Now: $3.00). Thought he was an eye catcher late fresh behind Beeokay before stepping up to this track/distance where he was a notable drifter in betting but loomed to win. Just think a lack of fitness brought him undone when second to Cannot Be Serios. Looks really hard to beat here.
5 Rapid Raiser (Bet Now: $8.50) has been up a while for Jake Stephens but is racing well and should be around the mark once again. Ran over 1700m on Gawler Cup Day where he was just off the speed throughout and tried hard when a close up second to Meadows Young Buck. Think back to 1550m will be okay and is one of the leading chances.
Race 2. (15:46) Holdfast Insurance (rs2ly) 1550m
I find the rise to 1550m with 3 Magna Bella (Bet Now: $3.00) fascinating, but class wise, she does have a bit on these. Andrew Clarken trained mare who is over a year between wins, but has been around the mark more often than not this prep despite not greeting the judge first. If she can get an economical run to see out the trip, clearly the one to beat.
4 Tubby Two Tracks (Bet Now: $3.80) isn’t badly treated at the weights here for Chris Bieg. She only goes up 2.5kg from her tough win last time out in the Gawler Cup, fending off her rivals late to cling on and win in good, tough fashion. Loves racing on the Parks track and overall, this is a significant drop in depth for her.
5 Extreme Thrill (Bet Now: $4.50) is a track/distance winner from three back and I think he’s a sleeper if he can get things to suit near the speed. Ran in the Gawler Cup where he was near the speed throughout and battled okay in defeat behind Tubby Two Tracks. Small field, think they go forward and prove hard to hold out.
Race 3. (16:26) Schweppes Hcp (c2) 1000m
Looks very good placement by Ryan Balfour with 1 Viduka (Bet Now: $2.20). Ran over this track/distance a fortnight back in a Benchmark 72 when wide no cover for the trip and he didn’t really fire a shot in a disappointing effort, but was found to be lame post race, so there were clear excuses. He’s better than that, so giving him another chance.
9 Dantree (Bet Now: $6.00) is an Andrew Clarken trained filly that has had two career outings, both coming over 900m at Murray Bridge. Led at a strong clip last time out and though getting the staggers late, she was able to fend them off and cling on in a gutsy effort. Should be near the front throughout and trying hard…last bit may test.
2 Lord Varys (Bet Now: $13.00) can run an improved race here at odds. Gary Searle trained gelding that resumed here two weeks ago in the Mrs Hyde race. Just looked in need of the run but was more than sound in defeat behind the speedy mare. Was good in defeat second up last prep, so think he’s one to include in multiples.
Race 4. (17:11) Licola's 40th (bm64) 1400m
Looks a lovely race for the Team McEvoy runner 2 Whykayoh (Bet Now: $5.00). Was 1600m back to 1200m when racing last Saturday on the course proper here and I really liked the way he closed off late in the piece when fourth to Gougers. He’s fitter now, back up in trip, and the overall depth isn’t strong. Think he’s the one to beat.
6 Dazzling Damsel (Bet Now: $2.30) looks the most obvious to knock off Whykayoh. This mare contested a Series Final here two weeks ago and surged hard late from off the speed, just missing out on picking up the in form Trip. Gets run of the race from from the inside gate. Interesting that the Ear Muffs go on pre race, so keen to see how she parades.
Very wary of 5 Kyshaka (Bet Now: $9.00), resuming for the Peter Hardacre camp. This mare has showed good promise throughout her career, winning three of her eight outings and nearly established herself as a city class horse. First up last prep resulted in a spank job over 1400m, so 1400m fresh is fine and wasn’t asked for much in a recent Penola trial.
Race 5. (17:56) Adelaide Galvanising (bm75) 1400m
Tricky race but in the corner of 8 You Hadme At Hello (Bet Now: $4.20) for the McEvoy camp. She found a very weak 0MW race at this track/distance two weeks ago and duly saluted, bolting up under a confident front running steer from Jess Eaton. She was only second up there, so you’d like to think there is room for improvement fitness wise.
9 Skilled Bunch (Bet Now: $6.00) is a talented mare who can measure up here. Pulled up lame two back behind Kayseri at Balaklava. Freshened up and raced on Murray Bridge Cup Day where she was a drifter in betting, but found plenty under pressure to just get the better of a tough nut in Exalted Traveller. Saves her best for 1400m and I think is hard to beat.
1 Farooq (Bet Now: $13.00) is a very interesting runner. Returned as a gelding at Naracoorte where he was a notable drifter in betting but class got him home and was too good, surviving a protest in the process as well. His form from last prep was really good in town. Does he want further? Perhaps, but has a touch of quality.
Race 6. (18:32) Tab (bm58) 1300m
2 Like A Heartbeat (Bet Now: $3.70) is a lightly raced four year old that is on the seven day back up after racing on the course proper here last Saturday where he got back in an on pace dominated affair and given the race shape, he had little chance, but loved the way he found the line to just miss out on picking up Storm Voyager. More genuine tempo here and he can take this out.
Up to 1300m I see as a big positive for 3 Wounded Soldier (Bet Now: $4.60). Ran over 1100m on Gawler Cup Day where he got back and was never a really winning factor but liked the way he found the line late in the piece, looking like a horse that would appreciate more ground, which is what he gets here, and hopefully can sit closer in the run from the good draw with Pannell sticking.
5 Miss Mosh (Bet Now: $9.00) has been a very consistent mare for the Jaensch stable and I think is hard to beat here. Loved the way she knuckled down to win two back at Naracoorte before going to Penola where the market didn’t want a bar of her and it was proven right. She had the suck run behind the speed and couldn’t go on with it behind Miss Harmonium. Yet to really prove herself in town but back to 1300m I do like.
Race 7. (19:07) Terry Howe Printing (bm82) 1000m
Any hint of on speed bias and 10 Mrs Hyde (Bet Now: $2.90) comes right into play. This Salade mare only knows one way to run and that is flat out fast, which is what she did when a dominant winner at this track/distance two weeks ago, her first run since May 30. Ran fast overall time that day. Harder here, but she’ll look the winner for a long way.
1 Star Hills (Bet Now: $3.20) is an absolute beauty for Bob Richard that has been kept fresh, having not raced since recording his fourth win on the bounce when winning at this track/distance. Interestingly was nominated for a race in Melbourne not long after, but was saved and instead runs here. Has to be hard to beat.
The map horse is 6 Saorsa (Bet Now: $10.00). He draws to get the perfect sit off potentially two speed demons and get last look with a break in the straight. Three weeks between runs since sitting wide with cover and failing to come on behind Exalted Maxine. Draws perfectly here and I think is one of the hardest to beat.
