Lincoln Moore's Gawler Preview








RACE 1 - 12:10PM LJ Hooker Maiden Plate (1719 METRES)

SEA OF SECRETS was a big drifter betting but ran well beaten half a length behind Lights Of Broadway at Balaklava last time. He’s had a few chances but won’t find many better to win opportunities to win than this. FREDDY THE EAGLE was OK placed behind Eaglelou at Murray Bridge last timeout and was placed at his only start here. CHARTIN ran 3rd in the same race at big odds and could be an improver again. SALUTE THE STARS was runner-up behind Thirty Two Guns at Strathalbyn last time but draws the car park.

SELECTIONS: 4 SEA OF SECRETS, 1 Freddy The Eagle, 5 Chartin, 3 Salute The Stars

PLAY: Happy to watch on.


RACE 2 - 12:45PM Wolf Blass Wines Museum Class One Plate (2121 METRES)

SOUTHERN SWOOP was a winner here in April and got well back before making ground behind Malinong Club at Strathalbyn last time. She draws a nice gate and looks the clear top pick. KING OF AVALON looks the danger if there is one placed at three of four starts here and comes off a handy run behind Lights Of Broadway. DANRENA was a winner here three starts back and his latest at Casterton was OK. AMBER HAZE placed four of six here while RAPID RIDE was $41 into $10 last start at Port Augusta. HALLAROSTE has been specked early but would need a quick turn around on his effort at Mount Gambier on Strathalbyn last week beaten 24 lengths after leading.

SELECTIONS: 11 SOUTHERN SWOOP, 9 King Of Avalon, 1 Danrena, 6 Amber Haze

PLAY: Keen to back SOUTHERN SWOOP but she’s short enough early and one for multis.


RACE 3 - 1:20PM Pure Wine Co Maiden Plate (1200 METRES)

BARBALINE has been bursting to break through She was runner-up behind Magic Max first-up from a spell at Morphettville back in March and placed at her subsequent two behind Vampire Slayer and Queman. That’s good form for this, she draws poorly but looks to have the class to offset a poor barrier. WILD SONNET was placed at Nhill last year and has trialled well for her return to racing. LUCKY BLUE went around big odds when runner-up behind Bajan Belle on the Parks last time. He draws wide but has Todd Pannell. SEAFARING has been placed his last two the latest behind Remarkables at Strathalbyn and must be given some thought. EL ROYALE was good running 2nd behind Prefer Us here back in February and is worth some thought. PORTATION drifted sharply in betting but was good on debut behind Belvidere Prince at Murray Bridge but draws wide. NOTA SINGLE SECRET showed some improvement last time.

SELECTIONS: 9 BARBALINE, 8 Wild Sonnet, 1 Lucky Blue, 2 Seafaring

PLAY: Keen on BARBALINE breaking through here.


RACE 4 - 1:55PM Terrace Function Centre Maiden Plate (1200 METRES)

EXOPIPI made very good ground on debut at Mildura. He draws out but looks a horse with upside and hard to beat here. LADY DE LUNE was good on debut at Murray Bridge behind Segal and should run well here. WILLASTON was good on debut at Balaklava when big odds. PERLUBIE BEACH is a 2yo who debited behind Aitch Two Oh at Morphettville in December. She has trialled OK and can measure-up here. SHIVER won a recent Murray Bridge trial. TUPOLEU has shown some ability.

SELECTIONS: 7 EXOPIPI, 9 Lady De Lune, 4 Willaston, 11 Perlubie Beach

PRINCE JOFRA has won two of his past three and was good behind Garrire at Murray Bridge last time out. RISING LEGEND was runner-up in the same race. He’s placed at his past couple and should give this a big shake from the inside draw. EAGLELOU went around good odds to win his maiden at Murray Bridge on the same day and did run quicker time. DANCING STREAM draws well has won two of her past four starts. LONRODEX was a winner here before being placed behind DAWNBURST at Balaklava who has been has specked at a price.

PLAY: Something each-way PRINCE JOFRA.


RACE 6 - 3:05PM Coopers Brewery Benchmark 54 Handicap (1200 METRES)

Tricky race. BETTA EDDIE comes off a Balaklava placing behind Jive Baby and has been placed at two of six starts here. He draws a gate gets the claim and his chance to find winning form. CHEH CHEH CHARLIE can run well at a prince. She has made ground her past couple and gets out in trip with Todd Pannell to ride. VENUSIAN was placed behind Pivotal Force at Strathalbyn last week. ZEDUKI was a winner here two starts back and followed with a good run behind Jive Baby. RUSTYDUSTYSUNSHINE races well here on her home track.

RACE 7 - 3:40PM Wolf Blass Wines Benchmark 58 Handicap (1100 METRES)

Open race. MAGIC PHANTOM is a three-time winner on a heavy track and is a two-time winner here. He draws a good barrier and looks very well placed. He opened big odds and has been very well found by punters. MYSTICANO has a good record here on his home deck and was good beating Gold Bundle two starts. He opened big odds and was quick to firm, he eases to a backable price from a good gate. CHEVITE is another local with five from 12 here and likes the sting out of the ground. He likes to race on speed and gets the claim. TEXAN WINDSTORM ran a string of placings before winning his maiden at Bordertown beating Boolcunda King who performed well during the carnival. He was spelled and has trialled OK. DEEVINE was a Murray Bridge winner three starts back and has never missed a place in four soft track runs.

TIZA was an Oakbank winner last September and has good heavy track form, She could be the big improver here second up. SAWTELL was placed at Balaklava before battling on OK behind Fight For Freedom at Strathalbyn last week. MOSS THE BOSS was specked at big odds and stuck on OK n the same race last week. READY FORA MOET is hard fit and worth some thought. APPLIED is a winner here and has claims on a Murray Bridge placing three starts back.
