RACE 1 - 12:46PM Fleurieu Milk Company Handicap (Heat 6 Happy Trails Series) (1400 METRES)
RENEGADE was very good last week pulling ground off an impressive stablemate The Difference. He’s drawn a touch wide but has the right form for a race like this. JACIN TALEE is an interesting runner, she’s been placed three of her past four on the Pakenham Synthetic and did tackle the Tivette Final won by Cordilla at Flemington back in July. BOTTOM LINE was good winning at a price at Murray Bridge on debut before following that with another good effort chasing home talented stablemate Quietly Discreet last time. He draws the inside and will be thereabouts. MISS HARONIUM was heavily back and won easily at Penola last start and is a winner here. Watch RENEGADE'S last start second here.
SELECTIONS: RENEGADE, Jacin Talee, Bottom Line
RACE 2 - 1:21PM Dominant Handicap (Heat 7 Happy Trails Series) (1400 METRES)
YOU HADME AT HELLO has had plenty of chances but did run well first-up from a spell making good ground behind Beeokay. Fitter and out to 1400m with the claim for Jess Eaton looks ideal and she’s not going to find too many weaker city races than this. CASHIN’ CHEX was good first-up at Morphettville behind Deep Speed coming from a long way back. He draws a nice gate and should settle just behind the speed. BIANBARNIE has won four races, three of them at 1400m and could measure-up here. NEVER DOUBT US had some specking at big odds at Murray Bridge in the Cup last week, MONRAAJ was a winner back in class two starts back. Watch YOU HADME AT HELLO'S last start second here.
SELECTIONS: YOU HADME AT HELLO, Cashin’ Chex, Bianbarnie
RACE 3 - 1:56PM Terry Howe Printing Three-Year-Old Maiden Plate (1000 METRES)
SIYAADEH is a McEvoy debutant who looked pretty good winning a Gawler trial recently. She draws a nice gate and has the addition of the blinkers here and looks well suited in a race like this. ECHOES OF ETERNITY looked smart winning a Murray Bridge jump-out in September but is drawn a touch wide here. The stable is flying and she’s firm in the market. LONGDUAN is the interesting runner a $195k yearling purchase who debut in the Magic Millions Classic race at Ballarat back in November NALEIGH was in the market and ran OK behind Dantree at Murray Bridge last week. MR TEE KAY wasn’t knocked around in a Penola trial. I’M KENNY has had three trials for his debut and draws a nice gate. Watch SIYAADEH'S trial victory here.

Race 4 - 2:35PM AAMI Handicap (1550 METRES)
DEEP FORCE looks an improver here he drifted in betting first-up and was never a factor behind Beeokay. He draws a nice gate and should improve and looks each-way value. EXALTED TRAVELLER is racing well and has five placings from 10 starts here on the Parks track. He doesn’t win out of turn but will make his own luck from the gate and give them something to chase. MR STYLISH should appreciate the drop in weight from a good gate with Todd Pannell booked to ride. CANNOT BE SERIOS was a Morphettville winner three starts back and will appreciate the drop in weight here and draws a nice gate. RIKIBOBBY has won eight races and has been runner-up his past couple of starts including a good run behind Vancity Gem which is a good form for this. FLORIANO is more than capable on her best.
SELECTIONS: DEEP FORCE, Exalted Traveller, Mr Stylish
RACE 5 - 3:15PM Furphy Handicap (1000 METRES)
Really open race. HARPUNA is a horse with upside he led throughout at Ararat on debut before starting favourite in town behind Array Of Sunshine. He ran well behind Rock Harbour at his last run back in May. Draws a good gate and can give this a shake. FEARLESS VISION was a good winner here first-up from a spell before chasing home Mileva last time out. She draws the inside and can bounce back to winning form. SALOME was OK behind Party Hack last week and had jumped out well previously, the blinkers go on along with some other gear changes so expect improvement second-up for Will Clarken. LORD VARYS was placed twice behind Seemingly Discreet last campaign and was a winner here over the 1000m. Drawn wide which hasn’t helped. MAGNO resumes but was placed at his last four and has claims despite a tricky gate. SIDESTREET has placed at both runs here both fresh, SANBUCK was a Geelong winner two back and was placed fresh. Watch HARPUNA's last start third here.
SEELECTIONS: HARPUNA, Salome, Fearless Vision
RACE 6 - 3:56PM Chris Young's 50th Handicap (Heat 7 Skybeau Series) (1950 METRES)
Another open race I‘m going to stick with ALLUSION who got back in a leader dominated race behind Darlamax last time when it was hard to come from the back. There looks to be some speed on paper and he could be too strong late. DR DPENDABLE could be one of the leaders from barrier two he was solid behind Somerset Maugham last time and has a good record here. CLASSIC WEIWEI ran really well behind Aqueduct first-up from a break. He’s drawn tricky but is pretty smart on his day and is a winner second up. MUNTHAM MISSILE is going super and was too good for Bertwhistle winning the Hamilton Cup last time out, that’s good form for this and he draws a nice gate. JAGUARY is another who will be handy to the speed, ACE OF CLUBS has done nothing wrong recently and will have to make his own luck from a tricky wide gate, STAR STATUS drawn to get a good run in the race. Watch ALLUSION's last win on the Parks track here.

RACE 7 - 4:31PM TAB Create your Spring Calendar Handicap (1250 METRES)
I’ve been with MAGNA BELLA at both runs back from a spell and she’s be good and this certainly does look her chance. She was game behind Tequila Time last start and draws a good gate. She did win her only start around the Parks track. HANKSTAR had good form through the carnival in better races and was sent out favourite first-up but never a factor behind Party Hack. He’s been placed at his only two starts here and sure to give this a shake. LEFT HAND MAN was solid behind One More Jack last time around and is aided by the claim but poorly drawn. GOOD THERAPY ran well at a big price last time. MISS JANE has two wins and two 2nd’s from seven starts here and she’ll run well down in the weights with the claim. CROWN HARMONIUM has trialled well and has the blinkers on. Watch MAGNA BELLA's last start second here.
SELECTIONS: MAGNA BELLA, Left Hand Man, Miss Jane
RACE 8 - 5:11PM Leconfield Viddora Series Final (Benchmark 76 Hcp)(Qualified Horses) (1300 METRES)
Really good race and the barrier draw has only made it tougher. TRIP is airborne but faces a tricky wide gate. If she can get across early she’s going to give them plenty to chase. OH PLEASE DIANNA maps really well from barrier six and there was plenty to like about her effort last week when she was only nailed by HEARTY LASS late. HEARTY LASS is drawn off the track and is going to have to work this week. I think DAZZLING DAMSEL is value at the $9 mark, she made good ground first-up in SA for Will Clarken last week and the blinkers go on. LADY BETHANY is another drawn a touch tricky but races well and POYSED TO REIN probably should have finished closer last week. Watch OH PLEASE DIANNA'S last start second here.
SELECTIONS: OH PLEASE DIANNA, Dazzling Damsel, Trip
RACE 9 - 5:51PM Accolade Wines Handicap (Heat 8 Riziz Sprint Series) (1000 METRES)
HARD ROCK GIRL looks the speed from the inside gate and her two-year-old form should measure-up pretty well here. She won the Cinderella Stakes and was placed behind Forever Free and Extra Time. She drifted sharply at her first run back in August when beaten 4.1 lengths behind Brimarvi Vehero, but that looks pretty good form for this. VIDUKA looks a danger, even from a sticky wide gate, he has been runner-up behind Streetcar Stranger and Instant Celebrity at his past two and makes his own luck early. DIMAGGIO maps to get a good run here and his past two runs have been solid for a race like this. AKKACAN goes well this circuit and has the blinkers back on. Watch HARD ROCK GIRL's latest trial here.
