Port Augusta 02/07/2023


Race 3 No. 3 DIVINA SHOW – ($3.60)

Morphettville trainer Chris Bieg has DIVINA SHOW backing up from her luckless run a week ago. Trialed aplomb behind Aadelad at Murray Bridge before looking in bad need of the run when resuming over 1300 metres at Bordertown. Comes out of a fast run race second-up here when running third behind Sir Toop who ran them along to win by a space. Divina Show rightfully knocked-up late and took plenty of benefit into her race last week. We chose to make Divina Show our best bet of the day only to find her strung up and looking for a run when needing to build momentum. 



Race 6 No. 2 SAHARA SONG – ($4.40)

Port Augusta Racecourse trainer Bryan Holtham goes for the Rochelle factor as Milnes takes the ride aboard local galloper SAHARA SONG. Milnes guided the mare home over this track and trip three runs back as Sahara Song turned the tables on Mysticano from their previous meeting. She has been around the mark in both runs since, including her latest effort when crossing the line with the placegetters over 1200 metres. Sahara Song had endured a wide run with Callan Murray going to them very early. Coming back to the 1100 metres with some pace on suits, and Milnes can stalk the early pressure from an outside draw.



Race 2 No. 2 INNER SANCTUM – ($6.25)

All-round horseman Danny Penna has been gracing the form guide of late from his training base at Clare. His enigma INNER SANCTUM decided to put on a bucking exhibition when racing first-up two starts ago. Ordered to go back to the trials, Penna ensured his charge only did the minimum while earning his chance to race again. Inner Sanctum became trapped three wide no cover the entire on his resumption take two. They didn’t go hard with the leader Petra’s Girl getting it all her own way in front. Inner Sanctum threatened the leader deep into the straight with perhaps only race fitness telling. Will strip fitter again and has drawn to prominent for a long way.
