Here are our Strathalbyn racing tips for today.

There’s a touch of it’s her day today about GOGOLF GURU who gets the blinkers on first time. On resumption the filly came well back over the 1000m at Murray Bridge. Thought she was okay running on behind Three Tears who gave them a bath. On face value I found her disappointing second-up on the same track, this time over 1200m. She over raced early and then didn’t let down well enough. Up in trip over the Gawler 1500m at latest where she again over raced. Did well in the end to poke along the non-preferred inside section and stick on okay. Fitter now third-up in what seems a weaker maiden than she’s faced recently. Key for her now is to settle with the blinkers and being slightly further into her prep.


Progressive stayer MASTER OF ZERPRISE mixed things up a bit by rolling forward from a wide barrier here. In taking the field up to the leader, The Red Sea, Master Of Zerprise showed plenty of vigour to hold out the challengers. Made it two in a row at Murray Bridge when he reverted to his usual pattern of lobbing towards the tail early. The speed was on over the 1800m and Jess Eaton found a response in the long straight as pulled the whip through to the left. Ended-up a comfortable victory in coming away once he found his stride. Beaten by a smart front-running ride on a leaderish track in town last time and lost no admirers. Can score chalk-up win on the board in what is a good race.


The forgotten horse surely CLEARY ADONIS. Trial was okay, certainly alright for a typical Provincial 58 Class anyway. First-up record is also better than it reads on paper. This horse debuted in the Listed Queen Adelaide Stakes, where he finished around 4L from the winner Absolute Flirt. First-up last time in. Cleary Adonis jumped well from wider out, restrained to find a spot and ended up drifting to worse than midfield. Despite over racing, he was strong through the line even though the first two home had established a winning break. He will want slightly further at some stage, however these won’t likely get away from him up the hill. Metcalfe takes a couple off and can get Cleary Adonis over the top of them late.
