PENTIRE’S SPIRIT on debut here following from a nice Barrier Trial performance, finishing as runner-up to the well-tried Short Stories. We stopped short of dedicating him to the Black Book on that occasion, instead highlighting the run of Hello Ladies who just ran well on debut in town on Wednesday. We just took note of where Pentire’s Spirit for where may pop up and the Jolly team seem to have found a nice kick off point for him here at Balaklava. Don’t mind the wide draw out of the chute as he’s a big leggy horse who’ll be happy with a bit of room. Hopefully he can cross to somewhere handy for stable apprentice Caitlin Jones without being hustled along and I’m sure Pentire’s Spirit will be finishing off well.

KITTY DAMOUR crossed the Queensland border to join the stables of Steven Schrader for shrewd operator ROI Bloodstock. His Benchmark numbers over there are pretty good, though he had been going around in Race Tips which can be a slight advantage to those who can run in them. Tips were removed in favour of Race Plates and he caught the eye running strongly through the line behind Trip at Morphettville Parks on his debut run in South Australia. Something had gone wrong because Race Plates came off with Bar Plates being applied to the front which only occurs when there’s an issue that needs managing. His last start run while back in grade at Gawler was just a pass mark while ROI Bloodstock have now transferred the training to Grant Young. Bar Plates coming back off while staying to BM58 Provincial grade tells me that backing Kitty Damour can be on for a one run deal. Stable apprentice Sophie Logan takes the mount, and we’ll roll the dice that he can run right back up to his previous good figures here.

EXALTED LAURETTA gains a run as third emergency in an opportunistic late nom from Grant Young. First thing you learn as an owner a country/provincial galloper in SA is to watch those late noms! We can of course transfer that info into our punting to help us find a betting edge too. Fresh off a four-week break, Exalted Lauretta was forced to lead from the death seat outside the leader Rock Hard 1100m Strathalbyn. Brave, though it was Rock Hard with the cheaper run who kicked back inside her to score while the pair fended off the challenges of the rest. Jacob Opperman has been entrusted with the ride and I would expect the pair to make light work of the sticky gate 12 early to cross and lead. Has a win and a second placing from two starts at Balaklava and she should be right in the finish again.
