BEST BET 🏆
Race 4 No. 3 BADONKIDONK – ($3.10)
We’ll be scanning the scratching’s come Friday morning hoping to see local trainer Darryl Dodson allowing BADONKIDONK to race on his home track. He will be right amongst the finish of this race going on his latest run. Badonkidonk pushed onto the unfamiliar role of pacemaker after Kayla Crowther could not get in from their wide draw. Hasta La Prince made the midrace move to go up and inject further pace in the race in response to Crowther easing the tempo. Badonkidonk was essentially caught napping as Hasta La Prince opened a winning break. Rochelle Milnes is booked to take the ride on Badonkidonk on Friday with the horse also dual accepted for Finals Day at Morphettville on Saturday.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 5 No. 5 FINAL CHANCE – ($4.80)
Strathalbyn trainer Scott Whittle found the much needed overdue win for FINAL CHANCE when his horse stormed home over the top of them to score over 1350 metres. The win followed a luckless effort when running third to the stable mate Archway To Heaven over 1200 metres here the start prior. Followed the breakthrough at Strathalbyn by being caught off the track over this distance as the Bomber’s Kiss got a lovely run to score. Final Chance kept coming to finish third before rolling forward and landing once again over 1350 metres at Strathalbyn. Final Chance is racing in rare form at the moment and can turn the table on Bomber’s Kiss with some luck in running.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 1 11 VOILA LA VALSE – ($10.20)
The record on paper of VOILA LA VALSE does not speak to the mare’s true ability, nor to the fact that she has rarely run a bad race. The mare was okay when beaten around seven lengths over 2000 metres second-up in a benchmark race at Mildura. Took plenty of fitness work from that run into her home track of Murray Bridge as local trainer David Huxtable kept her to trip in a class one. Voila La Valse was one of the few to make ground in that race as she got home late for third behind the two leaders who had cleared out from the rest of them. Voila La Valse has the benefit of race day experience on this tricky circuit, and will appreciate coming back to maiden grade as senior rider Callan Murray takes the ride.
