Previous Tips:

December 7

I’m very keen on TATOOSH here. After being tested over 1800m in September, trainer Will Clarken took the foot of the accelerator and gave him a bit of a break before resetting and lining up in a 1000m. He then went to the China Bowl (1300m) at Ararat before contesting the City Of Marion Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville. He was snagged back to last from the wide gate and found traffic on the bend and early in the straight, but his final 600m rated 6.3 lengths above BM and he was hitting the line hard. He looks perfectly suited stepping up to 1400m and drawing barrier 3 in the small field of seven is ideal. Todd Pannell gets back aboard and will give him every chance. 
Result (unplaced)

WHITE KAPS won at this track and trip last start carrying the same weight, and his performance rated 9.1 lengths above BM which was the strongest performance of the entire meeting. Kayla Crowther sticks and will utilize his early speed from the wide gate as she did last start. And as long as he hasn’t gone backwards from last start, he should be winning this. 
Result (unplaced)

Race 5 - 3:41PM AAMI HANDICAP (1250 METRES)
KENYAN WONDER was scratched from Gawler on Wednesday where I had her as my Racing Bet of the Day, and I can see why the stable have opted for this race. For a Saturday race, her last start performance of 3.6 lengths above BM rates more than four lengths better than anything else in the field. She missed the start by three lengths last time, and I think her effort was far better than it looked. As long as she can step cleaner, she looks hard to beat on the Parks circuit where she is yet to miss the placings in four starts. 
Result (unplaced)

Regardless of whether they go Slow, Even or Fast in this race, I can’t see them beating RIDGEWOOD DRIVE. His benchmark (BM) figures off any early speed are far superior to his rivals in this, and he could spot them four lengths on the bend and still win. Trainer Anthony Freedman has entrusted local hoop Jason Holden with the job, and I think this is a good move as the experienced, in-form Holder won’t be dictated to. The small field of four leaves no traffic obstacles, and although the son of Sebring is at short odds ($1.65) this is a very generous price. He also peaked at his seventh run last campaign when getting out to 2000m, so being sixth-up here at his second go at 2000m this preparation looks ideal. He’s fit and is the class runner, and he should be winning the opener. 
Result (1st - $1.75)

Happy to side with EXALTED TRAIL who won at this track and trip two starts back and then was unsuited dropping back to 1000m last start with three weeks between runs. He still ran 3.6 lengths above BM last start which is 2.4 lengths higher than the next best last start performance of any other runner. He went 7.1 lengths above BM in his previous run at the track and trip, and on the one-week back-up, I’m expecting a similar rating performance here. 
Result (1st - $6)

Race 3 - 2:22PM AAMI HANDICAP (1250 METRES)
The Dan Clarken and Oopy MacGillivray-trained ENOUGH SWAGGER looks like the best bet on the card following an impressive 2nd placing last start that rated very high. The four-year-old mare has continued to improve with each run this time in, and in her last four starts, she had gone 4.4 and 4.9 lengths below benchmark (BM) and then 2.4 and 7.4 lengths above BM. That last start rating of 7.4 lengths above BM is by far the strongest in the race, and she just needs to hold that form to be beating these comfortably. The small field of seven means less traffic issues than last time, and I expect her to finish over the top of them.
Result (1st - $2)
Race 4 - 3:02PM TAB HANDICAP (1400 METRES)
I tipped MORVADA last start off a strong BM performance, and despite being beaten, he still improved on his previous effort going 6.8 lengths above BM. I did mention last time that his peak was fourth-up last prep and he was only third-up last time, so I’m still expecting him to improve or at least hold that rating. Debt Collector won’t line up here as he’s going to Ballarat, so early punters will cop deductions, but it’s worth it as Morvada will shorten far more without Debt Collector in this field. Crockett will be favourite but I’m willing to take him on following a narrow win with a light weight at Mount Gambier. 
Result (1st - $10)

I also tipped CRAFTY DEVIL last start to defeat the $1.20 favourite and he got the cash for us. However, I do think he has more upside and there is no reason to jump off him now. They went extremely slow last time but there should be a bit more pace here, and I can see Crafty Devil landing just behind the speed. Kayla Crowther rode a very smart race last time and I’m expecting the same from the in-form hoop. 
Result (2nd)
