Port Lincoln Tips 19/02/2023

BEST BET 🏆  

Race 4 No. 3 EXALTED MAXINE – ($3.10)

Laura trainer Bryan Holtham brings EXALTED MAXINE back home to the track and distance she races so well at. She’s won three from four here by pouncing to the front and showing blistering pace from the get-go. Cleared out from Zakybree in a benchmark 62 back in November before besting that time when beating Strawberry Swing two starts later. Came back from a race in town while tasked with some weight when too fast again last start. Exalted Maxine is up in class in a race with a bit more pressure on, however gets in on the minimum. 

  

NEXT BEST 🥈  

Race 3 No. 3 KUBLAI – ($4.80) 

John Dunn & Krystal Bishop are back on their “home deck” and have brought over a massive team including KUBLAI. The training duo have given this horse plenty of time to mature prior to his debut and showed during a recent trial. Kublai was away with them at Strathalbyn before coming back underneath the rider in Samuel Payne. The pair travelled close to the speed before taking the shortcuts on the turn. Kublai showed himself to be beautifully balanced with a nice low action which can only help him around Port Lincoln. Gave us a great sight at a price when well backed on the day as Sophie Logan had Kublai finishing strongly on debut.

 

BEST VALUE 💰  

Race 9 No. 10 ISA SECRET – ($6.50)  

Kayla Crowther can guide us home in the last on the Simon Drewitt trained ISA SECRET. The mare trialled aplomb leading into the season and has maintained good form all prep. She was a winner over 1210 metres here four starts back when Sairyn Fawke gave her the gun-run the fence. Isa Secret did enough to beat a lower class field where the form has stood up since. Loved the way Isa Secret hit the line late for third in this class over 1000 metres behind Exalted Maxine. Should find this trip more to her favour and Crowther can give Isa Secret a nice run from the draw.
