Race 3 – 2:16PM FLEURIEU MILK COMPANY HANDICAP (1600 METRES)
DEBT COLLECTOR gets arguably the best hoop in SA aboard and I’m looking forward to seeing what he can do at peak fitness with Barend Vorster taking the reins. He produced a personal best fifth-up last campaign when going 11.7 lengths better than BM as he flashed home to finish 2nd at Flemington over 1400m. He’s had two extremely poor rides at his last two starts and has still smashed the clock late. This horse needs a quick tempo, yet Teodore Nugent was happy to settle at the rear with him in what was his slowest ever sectionals to the 600m – he gave the horse no chance as the stable he rides for most took victory. Next is was apprentice Teagan Voorham who let him go 7.6 lengths slower than BM to the 600m which was the third slowest he’s ever gone early. Debt Collector’s three best performances have come when he goes better than BM to the 600m, so if Vorster actually lets him use to early speed, and I believe he will, Debt Collector will just win.
Race 7 – 4:56PM Schweppes Southern Speed Series Final (2046 METRES)
What a massive run from EPERDUMENT last start. He ran the 35th quickest final 600m of the meeting, and the 28th quickest final 400m, but he ran the fifth fastest final 200m, and the only horses that went quicker where in 1050m or 1100m races. He was only third-up and surely has a stack of upside which should allow him to sit a bit closer before producing that big finish.
Race 4 – 2:51PM AAMI HANDICAP (1050 METRES)
EXALTED MAXINE did all the donkey work last start and towed the field up to I’m Too Hot who went too quick. Exalted Maxine got there too early and was left exposed for the entire straight, and she did a great job to keep battling second-up. That was a career best BM performance as she went 4.3 lengths better than BM, and she should still have upside being third-up on Thursday. Senior rider goes aboard, and the pair will prove hard to beat.
Race 5 – 3:31PM SCHWEPPES HANDICAP (1800 METRES)
EXALTED DEE runs so well off the quick back-up and looks to do it again here. She was never in doubt two starts back at Gawler on the four-day back-up, and she then beat all bar Coffee Amour who was carrying 6kg less. Jason Holder sticks with her and will give her every chance from barrier 3.
Result (Won – $4.60)
Race 7 – 4:51PM ADELAIDE GALVANISING ALCOPOP SERIES FINAL (1600 METRES)
NASEEB loves this track and trip and has three wins and a 2nd from five attempts. He bounced back to form stepping up to the mile last start winning in a time of 1:36.74 which rated 3.1 lengths better than BM on the day. The in-form Enki won at the track and trip in 1:37.07 last start and now goes up 5kg while Naseeb gets a claiming apprentice and drops 3.5kg. Tongsai Boss was beaten 1.8 lengths by Enki and also goes up in weight here, so with peak fitness fourth-up, Naseeb looks a weighted special compared to the other market leaders.
