STUART Gower will take a trio of chances to TAB Finals Day at Morphettville on Saturday.
The boutique Morphettville stable has qualified three horses for $105,000 Finals, led by promising three-year-old Anotherhouse in the Rebel Raider Final (1200m), Master At Arms steps out in the 1600m Happy Trails Final while Left Turn Clyde runs in the Riziz Final over 1100m.
“It’s obviously a program we target,’’ Gower said.
“We’ve only got eight or nine horses in work so to qualify three horses for Final’s Day is good for the stable and they’ve all got to be chances,’’ he said.
Anotherhouse landed some good bets at odds winning at Morphettville two runs back before being placed behind Kinetic Jewel last time out.
Despite being bred to get over ground, Gower said Anotherhouse might be a horse to watch during the Adelaide Racing Carnival next year.
“He’s a lovely horse,’’ Gower said.
“He’ll be better in the autumn. He’s bred to be a 2000m plus horse, but he might have too much brilliance for that,’’ he said.
The stable produced a metropolitan double on the Parks recently with Master At Arms and Left Turn Clyde successful and Gower said both horses would appreciate getting out on the bigger track on Saturday.
“Master At Arms is definitely an outer track horse,’’ Gower said.
“Winning the other day was a bonus and you should see a better horse on the main track.
“He’ll just need good speed in the race,’’ he said.
Left Turn Clyde claimed the scalp of the highly rated Press Down last time and Gower said he couldn’t fault the horse, but he was still weighing up who will ride with regular jockey Jason Holder committing to South East galloper Delcredere.
“I think he’s improving each run,’’ Gower said.
“I’m still trying to work out who will ride, and I’d prefer him at 1000m, but I might even go with an apprentice and claim off him,’’ he said.
Gower takes one runner to Balaklava on Wednesday, Hisway who will be ridden by Holder.
“It looks a nice race for him,’’ Gower added.
“I run him over 1200m first-up, he raced a bit fierce with the blinkers on and he should run well,’’ he said.
