BACK (WIN) #1 Clarence for 2 units

CLARENCE resumes from a spell and showed above average ability with some handy places and a win against a metro horse in SOAMES. Has had a couple of nice trials in lead up to this and might just have more ability.

LAY (WIN) #8 Flying Yank for 1 unit

Ran 2nd on a leader bias Balaklava at $101 two back before doing nothing here last start with the featherweight and good barrier draw. Senior takes over but lugs an extra 5kg in weight.

RACE 1 | SELECTIONS

1. CLARENCE
3. LADYMEANS BUSINESS
4. THE CREED
2. ANDREWS MEMORY

CLARENCE resumes from a spell and showed above average ability with some handy places and a win against a metro horse in SOAMES. Has had a couple of nice trials in lead up to this and might just have more ability.

LADYMEANSBUSINESS showed promise with a MDN victory then was only fair at metro level before a spell. Is coming into this from a hot form trial and the drop back from metro level should help.

THE CREED is hit and miss with form but is one of those horses that can bob up at odds. Draws for a softer run here.

ANDREWS MEMORY returns from a spell. He’s dropping back from metro level here. Probably wants further but his ability should take him a fair way.

RACE 2 | SELECTIONS

3. GALLUM
7. DEVILS DEXTER
1. ARTISTIC GIRL
10. STREET NEEDS

GALLUM  resumes from a spell and didn’t do a great deal in the winter months. They have tinkered with gear here and Todd Pannell takes the reigns from a soft draw. Given a long break so hopefully that’s the recipe it needs to show his best. DEVIL’S DEXTER is another returning from a break and showed some ability with a couple of nice closing placings at Strathalbyn. Has a good record at the trip and a senior goes on for the fresh run. ARTISTIC GIRL ran well enough on SA Debut for Justin Pickering. Was fair last start but can improve here. STREET NEEDS comes from a 3rd at Kingscote when favoruite with stable apprentice Dakota Gillett aboard. That form is only fair for a race like this but in the right yard for big improvement and senior takes over.

RACE 3 SELECTIONS

7 . THE PENSKE FILE
11. UNDER THE CONE
4. HOLMES
1. APACHE STATION

THE PENSKE FILE comes up from the South-east where he has been completely luckless in all 3 runs this prep. Deserves a win and certainly has the ability to do so. 1600m suits and should appreciate the wider surfaces on Murray Bridge.

UNDER THE CONE ran very well on debut but then was a bit slow away last start and lost all serious chance. Still got home well for 6th when it was all over. Forgive that and should enjoy the mile here.

HOLMES has given a sight at both runs back but has found 1 better at both. Never missed a place at 3 starts at this track and is going well with Todd Pannell aboard.

APACHE STATION started a despised outsider but got home well for 5th fresh from a break. Draws well. Extra trip suits.

Betting Strategy

BACK (E/W) #7 The Penske File for 1 unit each

THE PENSKE FILE comes up from the South-east where he has been completely luckless in all 3 runs this prep. Deserves a win and certainly has the ability to do so. 1600m suits and should appreciate the wider surfaces on Murray Bridge.

RACE 4 | SELECTIONS

8. SOLESUN
5. A SAMURAI MIND
4. THE BIG CHUNK
7. KALBARRI

This is a really good race with a couple of potential horses for the future here. SOLESUN was met with heavy market support on debut but did a few things wrong and was never a factor. Given time to mature and has looked very promising in two recent trials under no riding. Should be ready to fire fresh.

A SAMURAI MIND has looked solid at recent trials. Unseen race day but the stable generally have their juveniles up to the mark for the debut run.

THE BIG CHUNK has run two massive for the Jordan Frew stable. Likes to get back and run on so the big Murray Bridge track will suit.

KALBARRI was held up at stages but ran a really good closing 3rd from the tail. Will be fitter for it and Jake Toeroek takes over.

Betting Strategy

No Bet.

RACE 5 | SELECTIONS

1. SANDASTAN
2. WARRANDYTE ROAD
5. EIGHT ON THE DOT
6. APEROL SPRINT

SANDASTAN keep winning and winning and even when poorly weighted vs key rivals it just keeps finding. Very tough horse. Looked to be headed by EIGHT ON THE DOT last start but found something and was dominant late. Building a good record with S.Fawke aboard. Can win again.

WARRANDYTE ROAD closed OK behind SANDASTAN last time out. Now meets that horse 4kg better off at the weights. Ran OK in the Strath Cup with limited luck on Friday.

EIGHT ON THE DOT is racing well without winning. Doesn’t know how to run a bad race but just lacks the finish to get over the line first.

APEROL SPRINT comes across from the Kelvin Bourke stable. Ran 4th but was still beaten out of sight, Had a 3 wide trip that day so can be forgiven.

Betting Strategy

BACK (E/W) #2 WARRANDYTE ROAD for 1 unit WIN, 2 units PLACE

WARRANDYTE ROAD closed OK behind SANDASTAN last time out. Now meets that horse 4kg better off at the weights. Ran OK in the Strath Cup with limited luck on Friday.

RACE 6 | SELECTIONS

6. LITTLE RICH BOY
7. SHIKANIC
5. BEERS WITH CLINT
1. TYDEUS

No bet race. Shocker. Not interested in this at all. If you want a bet perhaps watch market moves.

LITTLE RICH BOY was thereabouts vs city bound RUNAWAY BELLE. This is probably easier and goes well at Murray Bridge.

SHIKANIC is first up in SA for Peter Nolan. They have tinkered with gear. Watch for any market moves.

BEERS WITH CLINT won a trial in lead up to this in-front of LUCILLE ROSE. That horse has come out and won at Strath on Friday. That’s a good form reference for this.

TYDEUS mixes form but best is good enough.

Betting Strategy

No Bet.

RACE 7 | SELECTIONS

5. ONE SKY ABOVE US
8. RUE BUNGAN
1. HOBO BOB
9. VEREZNAY

Tricky little race to end the day with many chances.

ONE SKY ABOVE US was a surprise winner here at Murray Bridge at $101. Then did a bit wrong on a tricky Strathalbyn track. Forgive that. Gets back to the track where he won impressively and has had a mini freshen into this.

RUE BUNGAN has been a bit stiff the past two. Won at this track/distance 3rd up last campaign and could be the one at odds.

HOBO BOB is running very well this prep. Was met with market support at City grade last start but raced too keenly in the run and knocked up. This race is easier and go on previous form.

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) #5 One Sky Above Us for 1 unit

ONE SKY ABOVE US was a surprise winner here at Murray Bridge at $101. Then did a bit wrong on a tricky Strathalbyn track. Forgive that. Gets back to the track where he won impressively and has had a mini freshen into this.

BACK (WIN) #8 Rue Bungan for 1 unit

RUE BUNGAN has been a bit stiff the past two. Won at this track/distance 3rd up last campaign and could be the one at odds.
