An early look at Morphettville - September 21st

James Jordan from has provided us with an early look at racing at Morphettville for Saturday September 21. 

The rail goes out to the 3m position for Saturday's meeting and there is some rain forecast on Friday. At present, the track is a Good 4 and if the rain arrives it's likely to be in the Soft 5 range. Either way, I'm expecting it to race fairly.

Race 2 No.1 - Beauty

This mare has done the bulk of her racing in Victoria but returns to SA for her first-up run. I really liked her recent Cranbourne trial win, which was in good time and by a big space. She's drawn gate 1 and will just about hold the lead if she jumps cleanly. Happy to back her Best Of The Best.

Race 6 No.5 - Zarace

Quite an intriguing race to assess. There maps to be quite a lot of horses in midfield positions and there is a chance those getting right back will encounter traffic problems. I'm looking at on-pacers in this and have settled on Zarace. On his day he's a nice horse capable to running a rating to beat these. He's had 21 days between runs but has performed well off similar breaks in the past. Happy to back him each way and take the $8.50-$9 currently on offer.

Race 8 Nos.3/7 - Dexter You Devil/Cannot Be Serios

Keen to back two horses in this. I thought Dexter You Devil returned impressively this preparation and then ran a credible race in the Balaklava Cup when he was poorly weighted. Cannot Be Serios is a last-start winner on the seven-day back up and comes out of a couple of fast-run races where he's performed well. The stake ratio I recommend is 75/25 with the larger bet on Dexter You Devil. Also happy to take the early prices of $3.60 and $11.
