BEST BET 🏆
Race 3 No. 4 ONELOLLY’SENUFF – ($6.60)
We’ve got the Rochelle Milnes factor on ONELOLLY’SENUFF who we can make as our best of the day. Laura trainer Bryan Holtham has found steady improvement out of his lightly-raced mare. She pinged the lids to lead off the inside draw over 1200 metres here last time out. Callan Murray has a beautiful pair of hands on a horse and it took all of his best efforts to get Onelolly’senuff to relax underneath him. She did oblige after some gentle coaxing and came back under the speed set by Miss Diamantina. Murray eventually worked her off the fence as the leader fell back into his lap only to find the bird had flown in Augusta Power. Onelolly’senuff is coming back to 1100m while drawn slightly off the fence which should suit. Milnes can roll into a forward position before testing her own skills in asking the mare to give and race generously underneath her too.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 1 No. 1 I’M KENNY – ($2.70)
Darren Magro & Aimee Bush look to go back-to-back with their Port Augusta Racecourse track specialist I’M KENNY on Sunday. The training duo have booked Caitlin Tootell to ride I’m Kenny in the opening race of the card as Nichola Yuen sticks with Sir Toop for the Aaron Bain yard. Yuen went to work early on I’m Kenny as the pair found his favoured front-running role here last meeting. I’m Kenny fended off the challenge from top local horse Augusta Rock before coming away for a good win over the mile. He has won six starts at this track, including two over this trip. Tootell will undoubtedly be adopting similar tactics for the Magro and Bush stable and I’m Kenny can prove hard to get by once again.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 8 No. 2 SANDSATION – ($7.10)
Campbell Rawiller makes the trip to the state’s West Coast with a good book of rides. We’ll be looking towards Campbell to send punters home a winner as he partners SANDSATION. Another Port Augusta Racecourse specialist, Sandsation will enjoy the weight relief on Sunday after lumping 63kg last start. He has been bested twice now by Classy Banner who he meets in this. Sandsation has drawn for a comfortable run in transit and can be turning the tables under Rawiller at a genuine each-way price.
