Port Lincoln Tips 18/12/2022


Race 4 No. 9 BUT BEAUTIFUL – ($10)  

We backed BUT BEAUTIFUL to make it three from three at Bordertown when racing first-up last Sunday. We didn’t have any jump out info to go on so we took her on trust. She does boast a good record first-up and ran a big race over 1430 metres when resuming at Naracoorte last time in. Callan Murray made an early move to put But Beautiful into the race that day which meant she was off the track for much of the contest. The mare put two wins together to begin her previous prep, the first of which a last-gasp win over this trip at Bordertown. She struck a day that raced very leaderish and was one of the notable closers of the meeting. Wily Trainer/Trader Roslyn Day has sent But Beautiful to follow in the footsteps of former stablemate Goodarchie to go racing in Port Lincoln.



Race 3 No. 8 POCKET PENNY – ($5)  

Wayne Drewitt has former Port Augusta local POCKET PENNY flying this prep. She generally takes time to wind up into her races and found the line strongly first-up. That was here over 1000 metres against a handy maiden won by Sir Grumpy. She did the same again when racing over 1210 metres second-up, finding the line late behind Opal Beach. Punters jumped on board, sending her around as the short elect when coming back to 1000 metres. Predictably, the sharpness had come out of her sprint with Pocket Penny labouring behind the placegetters. Drewitt has her fully fit now and Pocket Penny can show her best out to the 1350 metres. 



Race 1 No. 3 BUILDING CASTLES – ($26)  

The commanding Port Lincoln stables of John Dunn & Krystal Bishop can deliver their apprentice Rochelle Milnes with her first race winner on Friday. The pair leg Milnes aboard BUILDING CASTLES who ran a cheeky race on debut back in April this year. Angus Chung sent the horse forward over 1000 metres here before Building Castles faded late in a strong maiden behind Perfect Zed. The stable tipped their charge out shortly afterwards and have trialed him three times since in preparation for return. The latest of which saw Milnes go to work on the horse on the soft 7 at Strathalbyn. The pair got a long way off the pace when we backed them on resumption before making ground into the straight.
