Saturday @ Morphettville:


1:47pm R3 #8 UNLACED
5:03pm R8 #6 ROCK THE RING (Best)
5:44pm R9 #9 KAYSERI

:one: 1:47pm R3 #8 UNLACED

Michael Hickmott trained mare that despite being comfortably held was still far from disgraced when seen doing best work late first-up in what was a leader dominated race. As a rule improves out of sight second-up with only defeat coming since coming to Australia when presented on a Heavy 10! Expect settles a lot closer here from the ideal draw and must play each-way at the opening $7.50….rates $6.0.

:two: 3:47pm R6 #9 STARSPANGLED SAGA

Although every chance thought this mare was so game when narrowly missing last start behind the speedy Tanja’s Dream. This no tougher whilst only carries 0.5kg extra mapping to again enjoy another very similar run on leaders backs. If able to replicate that same rating expect is in this right up to her ears. Justin Potter has a good affiliation with this mare and absolutely worth specking on an each-way basis at opening $8.50….rates $6.

:three: 4:27pm R7 #1 CAPRICORN RIDGE

Country trained four year old gelding that has returned as well as ever, firstly scoring with authority when fresh before narrowly missing second-up behind the in-form Lake’s Folly. Placed all three previous third-up runs whilst steps up to ideal trip of 1800m. Maps to lead these on his ear in what is a slightly easier grade. More than happy to oppose the McEvoy favourite just out of maiden grade and think the opening $4.80 reads extremely generous….rates $3.50.

 :four: 5:03pm R8 #6 ROCK THE RING (Best)

McEvoy trained four-year old that progressed though the grades sharply when last in work producing a winning hattrick before narrowly missing in Listed company when a certainty beaten! Maps to enjoy the ideal trail sitting just off clear leader (Spanish Heirloom) and down on the minimum expect him to be simply too strong for these. Comes into this off a terrific recent trial when running Kemalpasa to 0.5L despite covering a stack of extra ground throughout. More than happy with the opening $3.80….rates $3.0 best bet!

:five: 5:44pm R9 #9 KAYSERI

Rock hard-fit gelding, lining up for his third start in three weeks, where he has enjoyed absolutely no favours in any of those starts. Maps ideally here sitting just off solid tempo whilst now drops sharply, 4kg in weights with senior rider going back aboard. Really think this race profiles very similar to his last win in December, where he beat Picargo and Lady Dunmore (carried 57.5kg on that occasion) whilst also settling a lot further forward. At the opening $9.50 simply must be played each-way…rates $6.0.
