March 16

SCHILLDORA will be the anchor in most multis on Saturday and she should simply be winning this. Heaven’s Deal is a gifted mare that disappointed before going for a break, and she couldn’t get near Schilldora last preparation. In two runs this time in, Schilldora won by three lengths at Morphettville and was then beaten two lengths in the Group 3 Typhoon Tracy Stakes (1200m) at Moonee Valley. She seems to peak third-up, and only bad luck will stop her winning. 
Result (scratched)

UNFAIR DISMISSAL looks a class above these, and while the 1400m first-up is a query, you have to respect the stable’s decision to do so instead of heading to a 1200m fresh. The All Too Hard colts is a Listed winner at this track and trip and way only 2.5 lengths from Brutal in the Exford Plate (1400m) at Flemington. He beat Cosmic Alert in a recent barrier trial where jockey Jason Holder sat motionless while Cosmic Alert was having the sink thrown at it. That galloper was runner-up to Lockdown Jack last Saturday, so the trial form looks ok. 
Result (4th)

I’ve never really been a fan of MISS CUOCO but think she’s found the right race to be winning. Three starts back she was runner-up to Tiara Star, and two starts back she worked home strongly with 58.5kg in a 1250m BM70 and finished half a length from Everyday Lady. Last start she stepped up to 1400m and didn’t finish it off behind Amberdi who is clearly one of the state’s brightest starts. The drop back to 1250 is ideal, and she’ll carry less weight in this BM64 than she was carrying in BM70 grade due to the claim from in-form apprentice Justin Huxtable.
Result (unplaced)

I’m a big fan of Blue Hope who has won his past three for us, but you really can’t go past the Tony McEvoy-trained ALLUSION here. The Not A Single Doubt gelding sweated up on debut but strolled to a six-length victory, and Chris Casserta eased him up with 75m to go and celebrated with a fist pump at the 50m mark. He ran three lengths quicker than the Class 2 event that day, and his winning time is marginally slower than So We Are who defeated Kemalpasa at the track and trip last start. So We Are goes up 4kg on that run and Allusion carries the same weight, and the latter surely has far more upside. The extra trip shouldn’t pose any problems and he should be too good for them. 
Result (3rd)

Race 2 - 1:46PM TAB HANDICAP (1000 METRES)
These two-year-old races can be hit and miss but I’m confident Peter Hardacre’s Helmet filly, ROSE TIARA, can make it back-to-back wins. I know the Maher and Eustace stable have a good opinion of a Street Boss filly named Odaline and I was keen to load up on her on debut. Odaline showed good speed to lead and fought on well for 2nd but she was just no match for Rose Tiara who extended beautifully through the line to win by nearly three lengths. The second favourite, Mayan, was only fair in a recent barrier trial, and I think Gucci Guy can run 2nd, but Rose Tiara should be winning this. 
Result (3rd)

March 2

Race 1 - 1:16PM Schweppes Handicap (1100 METRES)
I have an opinion of Dancer’s Kin, and although she looked to have trialled well, I think Lady Young went better in that trial heat and she won a maiden at Balaklava which is a lot easier than Dancer’s Kin will face at Morphettville. She may need another run so I’m leaving her alone first-up. Exalted Maxine has won two in a row but may find Ken Keys’ filly, WRITE ENUFF, too sharp. She finished 2.3 lengths from Sunlight and Humma Humma in the Quezette Stakes (1200m) and then weakened to finished 3.5 lengths from Thrillster and Humma Humma when trying to lead in the Atlantic Jewel Stakes (1200m) which didn’t suit. I think she’d had enough at that stage and she looks to have returned in great order with a trial win at Cranbourne where she ran good time and did it under a strong hold. 1100m first-up looks ideal and she can race anywhere in the small field and still out-muscle them late. 
Result (2nd)

Race 6 - 4:21PM TAB Cinderella Stakes (1050 METRES)
My patience has run thin with LADY NATURALISTE but Matt Cumani has attracted the services of Raquel Clark and that’s worth a couple of lengths at Morphettville. Quite simply, she can win this if they are smart with tactics. She sat outside Lady Lupino when both horses where on debut and just couldn’t pick her up in the straight. She looked home at Sandown and was claimed right before the line, and last start she went to Sydney for the $2 million Inglis Millennium and was beaten six lengths by Castelvecchio and co who go around at Randwick on Saturday. She hit the front early in the straight but found the trip and class a bit too testing. If Clark sends her to the front on Saturday and uses her fitness to fend them off as she drops back in trip, she should be too strong for them. 
Result (1st - $4)

Race 7 - 5:01PM 13CABS Lord Reims Stakes (2600 METRES)
I think BONDEIGER is a standout in the staying feature of the day. With three weeks between his runs this campaign, he’s gaining fitness slowly and was probably a bit underdone stepping up to 2500m third-up. Considering he has a stack of improvement to come but only finished 1.4 lengths from Vengeur Masque who I rate a far superior stayer to any of Saturday’s rivals, he’s clearly the one to beat. 
Result (1st - $3)
