CHAMPAGNE AFFAIR impressed enough first up to go into the book following the Saturday Review. Desiree Stra was kind to her in the trial leading up in okay time then jumped from out wide on resumption on the tight turning Morphettville Parks track. She was brave to not go away and we mentioned that a bigger track would suit and perhaps even over slightly further. Does have natural pace to roll forward, really just want to see her out of the chute where she stretch those big legs early without being rushed along. No easy races on Balaklava Cup Day, yet I’d expect an improved showing from CHAMPAGNE AFFAIR against a good lot.

KORUTO is one we’ve been waiting on. Couple of jump outs when last in work around the likes of stablemate’s Shojiki and Lady Dunmore, didn’t look out of place and was well respected on debut. Didn’t have the pace to go with The Great Leveller and Distillate which has turned out to be a handy form reference. One more run then tipped out and has since shown good speed in a jump out to comfortably hold Smokin Val who was the subject of a successful betting plunge at Murray Bridge plus an acceptor for Group race up the Flemington straight. KORUTO has trialled in good time since, jumping well from out wide before coming back underneath the now suspended Kayla Crowther before finishing too strong. Jake Toeroek can carry the stick in the left hand which may be ideal up the long Balaklava straight.

Clash of the Titans between BALF’S CHOICE and SAVATOXL! Pretty much declared the Top End Champ Savatoxl off his barrier trial at Gawler and while the barrier draw won’t be enough to dent the confidence of those from the Territory, it’s enough to make me want to come back to a Saturday Review where we identified BALF’S CHOICE as being on target to pick up his second Balaklava Cup. Following a year long layoff, he’s had the three trials and come through the traditional Balaklava Cup lead up’s in the G3 Spring Stks followed by the Listed Leon Macdonald. No gut busting runs, just coming along nicely. For those who like to profile their horses, the Ryan Balfour stable is a must to follow as his runners tend to be consistent from one prep to the next. Rated as a BM84 galloper when winning the 2017 edition, he had the winkers go on that day. Since ran a career peak performance as a BM90 horse carrying WFA in the 2019 All Star Mile, Blinkers being applied for that race on a Good 3 surface. I love the pairing with Dom Tourneur now having a couple of steers on him already, likely to be positive from around a middle gate and with the blinkers going back on.
