Saturday @ Morphettville:


1:12pm R3 #8 HASSLEFREE
2:22pm R5 #2 LA DRAGONTEA
2:57pm R6 #1 DOUCEUR (Best)
4:17pm R8 #20 GENERAL BEAU
4:55pm R9 #2 BLESS HER

:one: 1:12pm R3 #8 HASSLEFREE

This bloke is going much better than form initially reads since joining new Stable. Actually thought his last start 4.2L seventh was full of merit after racing four wide no cover throughout against a very similar line-up. Maps to enjoy a much more favourable run stalking the pace and at the big odds is worth more than an each-way throw at the stumps. Given no scratchings, shapes as more than a double overlay value selection given we have him rated $10.

:two: 2:22pm R5 #2 LA DRAGONTEA

Imported galloper that is a recent addition to the Anthony & Sam Freedman Stable. First-up was in the Group 2 Queen Of The South Stakes over 1600m and thought this mare was so game in defeat despite running 6th beaten 2.5L after racing no closer than four wide without cover throughout. Certain will strip much fitter for having now had first run in Australia whilst overseas form suggests she will be much better suited over this longer trip. Again has the services of Jamie Kah whilst one would expect her to give this mare a much better run from this draw. Given no scratchings rates a good bet at $4.50 or better.

:three: 2:57pm R6 #1 DOUCEUR (Best)

Patrick Payne travels this filly across the border again and presents her as the days best bet! Thought her run in The Australian Oaks was full of merit when beaten just 2.2L after being made to cover plenty of extra ground final 600m. Outstanding placing 2nd-up against G3 company over unsuitable 1600m. Only two ‘failures’ has had plenty of excuses. Only run this trip gave an almighty sight before being grabbed late in the Kennedy Oaks. Not at all concerned by wide draw as expect Michael Dee to push forward and settle on-pace. Given no scratchings rates clearly on top at $2.50.

 :four: 4:17pm R8 #20 GENERAL BEAU

Concede this Matthew Ellerton trained 3yo colt was a fraction disappointing on face value last start when runner-up behind Seradess when appeared to have every chance. Just however don’t think he appreciated the sit and sprint tactics of the race hence forgiving. Form previous outstanding including beaten less than a length behind Extreme Warrior two starts back despite sitting three wide no cover throughout. Meets the favourite here also 4kg better for that effort! Prior to that placed 3rd behind September Run in the G1 William Reid with 56kg. With Daniel Moor doing the steering think this bloke presents as a terrific each-way roughie given even luck….rates $15.

:five: 4:55pm R9 #2 BLESS HER

Not hard to forgive a bad run when failed on a Heavy 10 at Warrnambool last start. Run prior finished just 1.05L behind Extreme Warrior (rightful Goodwood fav!) at level weights despite also not having much luck late. Now gains the services of Jamie Kah who should have this mare mapping ideally sitting just off pace from her good draw. Shapes as the likely sharp improver and terrific each-way value play. Given no scratchings rates a good bet at $6 or better.
