Gawler Tips 21/09/2022   


Race 5 No. 1 DEEVINE ($2.80)

We’ll stick with our #SABlackbookers horse in DEEVINE as he lumps the top weight here. Trainer Ryan Balfour secures the three kilo claim for stable apprentice Alana Livesey to get him in. Deevine has won the two races this prep, both over this track and distance whilst racing in this class. The first of which was a barnstorming win on the heavy track as Jason Holder rounded them up from the tail. Livesey claimed the second of such races on Deevine as Balfour gave him a class relief from town. Deevine again settled towards the rear of the field before Livesey let him rip up the middle. Both wins came in similar conditions as expected here on Wednesday with some good pressure being applied out in front.



Race 1 No. 3 ALPINE FUN – ($4.20)

Good race to start the card where ALPINE FUN meets Pretentious Lass for their return bout. We were on the latter as she became held-up slightly for a run with Alpine Fun building from wider out. The former found a clear run through from the top of the straight and looked the winner. Alpine Fun continued to build however and knuckled down into the straight to hit the line dead-locked with Pretentious Lass. Whilst the other mare has raced since, Alpine Fun is only a slightly built mare who will have taken plenty of benefit from the run with a month between. Jason Holder has drawn perfectly inside of Pretentious Lass and should gain the right run on the back of impressive maiden winner Baby Alex.



Race 2 No. 2 BARDOUTES – ($9)

We saw good gate speed with subsequent early pace from BARDOUTES through the jump outs last prep. He was surprisingly sent around a double figure quote for his debut run where he was first out of the machines here. He was soon set upon by the winner Glacius and these two made most of the early running. Glacius got the better of Bardoutes into the straight with the latter weakening inside the 100m into third place. We chose to follow Tony Montana out of the race who flew late for second and that horse has gone onto better things since. Glacius also caught the eye of punters at his following start with his fast finishing second to Taunting at Murray Bridge.
