Angle Park – Adelaide Cup Heats – Thursday, October 1st

Adelaide Cup Heat 1

#1 Aston Silk

She is having her first start at the track which isn’t an ideal preparation for this series. I have personally found her very hard to catch and I thought she had every conceivable chance in a recent race at Sale over 520 metres where she was leading clearly and was run down fair and square.

That was a much weaker race than this. Wooden Tiger, Sweet on Me and Zipping Zarbo all look great winning chances and I think one of them can get the job done here.

Adelaide Cup Heat 2

#3 Golden Night

He was enormous last week in the Match race series where he ran equal time to Catch The Thief in 29.58 and was adjudicated to have run second in the event by .002 seconds. It put everyone on notice that this chaser is a serious Adelaide Cup contender. The start before the Match race he led all the way in 29.56 and the 29.58 last start was in wet conditions, so the run had plenty of merit.

The map here looks decent for him as American Man and Zipping Ted can be only moderate away and will look to shift off the track. So, if Golden Night can clear those two rivals early and find the rail, he could be off and gone here. One of his main rivals, It’s A Riot has only raced once since its start on July 16th and may start unders in the market.

BACK (WIN) — Golden Night for 2 units at > $2.15

Adelaide Cup Heat 4

#1 Mepunga Isla

Angle Park is a circuit that can take some getting used too, so it was great planning by her connections having her trial around the track before her winning run here last week. Although she only ran 29.94, it was the way she went about it that impressed me. She lost some ground early taking a left hand turn at box rise but she quickly made up that lost ground and zoomed through at the first turn and gave nothing else a chance thereafter.

It was also in wet conditions. Now, with her third look at the venue, I think she can kick into another gear here. Cawbourne Madox really caught the eye in the same race but the wide draw here could be costly, which makes me lean to Mepunga Isla.

Oakvale Blue tends to head right out of the boxes so this looks a sensational map out of the boxes.

BACK (WIN) — Mepunga Isla for 2.5 units at > $2.60

Adelaide Cup Heat 5

#8 Coorong Lucy

She has always been well suited off wide draws but there looks to be two issues for her here. Firstly, she is resuming off an injury-enforced spell and hasn’t raced since July 16. I would rather be on a chaser at peak fitness rather than first up. I could see her tiring late here. Secondly, Golly Gumdrops could pose a problem for her crossing the field cleanly. She has been showing consistent early zip and uses plenty of the track in her races.

This could ensure the inside brigade get a great run through at the first turn. I think any of Lektra Theory, Air Marshall, Danyo’s Greta or Master Chaos are more than capable of winning this

LAY (WIN) — Coorong Lucy for 1.5 units at > $3.30

Adelaide Cup Heat 6

#1 Kipling

He looks well suited to the inside draw here. In his last four starts at Angle Park, he has started from Box 5 and Box 7 and two of these races were over the unsuitable 388 metre trip. His two recent starts over 515 metres he has saluted the judge in 29.97 and 29.79 respectively and he has a much better draw this time around.

Obviously being a Cup heat it is a stronger field than his most recent runs but compensating for that is the fact this looks to be one of the weaker heats.

BACK (WIN) — Kipling for 2.5 units at > $2.50
