While we do not have a jump out or trial to go on this time in, we expect TAVIKAT (Best Odds Currently $2.30 with TAB) to remain well-supported. Blinkers going straight on here leads us to believe that trainer John Hyam will have him well prepared for a first-up tilt. First-up last time in tried to lead all the way on the back marker friendly Murray Bridge track. Graceful Eagle had got to him late over the 1200 metres that day and Tavikat now resumes over the shorter trip distance. Balaklava has played to those up on the speed over the past few meetings, which is where we’d expect to Tavikat early.

We took the double figures about BYWATERS ROAD (Best Odds Currently $6.50 with PlayUp) last start and we’re keen to follow-up. We had him marked as a horse to follow after beginning slowly with the blinkers on first time. He became held up for clear running on entering the straight here at Balaklava before catching the eye late. We let him go around without us in town where he found excuses on a leader dominated day. He did surprise us by sitting outside the leader when we backed him in a high rating maiden at Murray Bridge last time. Tired late to just miss the placings into fourth and should strip fitter again.

Trainer Emma Hubbard has her team up and about and can strike again with MR RANGER (Best Odds Currently $3.80 with Palmerbet). Ran home well along the fence over 1200 metres here two back as Bignota slipped away with a winning break. Followed up that run by pushing forward from off the track to sit outside the leader at Strathalbyn. Mr Ranger continued to extend strongly through the line at the end of the 1350 metres. Looks well placed staying to class and has drawn a treat for Barend Vorster to find the gun run.
