Tips will be updated before the Saturday and Monday meetings.
Race 3 - 1:40PM Adelaide Hills Insurance Brokers Class Two Handicap (1100 METRES)
Gun apprentice Maggie Collett takes the ride on SHOWUSYOURMOTOR (Best Odds Currently $5.50 with Bet365). Trainer Kristi Evans has found the perfect race back in class and utilizes Collett’s 2kg claim to stamp herself a massive winning chance. Small field certainly helps too, as Showusyourmotor often likes to find her feet early in her races. Saturday’s racing pattern saw the winner’s coming almost along the outside fence, shades of Showusyourmotor’s recent win at Strathalbyn. Collett will look to have her mare balanced down the hill and within striking range as soon as they straighten.
Race 6 - 3:40PM Magain Real Estate Maiden/Class 1 Plate (Heat 8 Provincial Super Series) (1900 METRES)
#SABlackbookers horse HARBELLE (Best Odds Currently $16 with Bet365) won her maiden at Balaklava following a slashing effort in town. Trainers Leon Macdonald & Andrew Gluyas have since raised the bar with their promising filly, sending her around at Listed level over the mile. We’ll put a line through the run as she was forced to race wide without cover throughout while being handy to the speed. Walked out of the gates at her most recent attempt while staying to trip in town. She appeared to want to drop her head and relax before getting onto the heels of the horse in front. Did well into the straight to continue to build from the back off that slow tempo and looks well placed here back to provincial grade.
Race 7 - 4:20PM Stateliner Community Club Cup Benchmark 60 (Heat 6 SA Sprint Series) (1050 METRES)
Rob Wilkinson sent ARAY OF SUNSHINE (Best Odds Currently $11 with Bet365) around as the race favorite when resuming last prep. That was a race in town which was won by Hills who covered ground that day as Aray Of Sunshine peeled out to run on into second. Not sure Hills is going as well this time around and Aray Of Sunshine has opened here at triple the price that day. She did win a jump out in early March, followed by a handy enough barrier trial. Wilkinson has given the nod to Lachlan Overall for the ride, giving the 4kg claimer a big chance for a win at Oakbank on the Easter Monday.
