RACE 2 - 12:12PM LJ Hooker Gawler/Barossa Handicap (1700 METRES)

ASPEN COLORADO handles all conditions and comes off a solid effort when beaten 1.5 lengths behind New York Hurricane at Bendigo. He draws a perfect gate and should run well here. TEST THE LAW was back to winning form at Murray Bridge last time when he fought off Smokin’ Princess to win by 0.3 lengths. He has a great record here with two wins and three placings from six starts and should be in the finish again. EXALTED FIRE was a good winner on the Parks two runs back before being beaten 1.9 lengths by Test The Law at Murray Bridge. He has two wins and a 2nd from four runs here and gets some weight relief. OUTTA COMPTON has won two of his past four, was too good for Maracourt two runs back and when beaten 3.2 lengths by Name Dropper at Sandown.

RACE 3 - 12:47PM Holdfast Insurance Brokers Handicap (1700 METRES)

RESERVOIR DOG was well ridden off the speed before he came with a well-timed run to narrowly beat Wine Barron here last time. SAINT MICHAEL comes off a fighting Balaklava win and draws a handy gate. DELTA TANGO is a horse who likes the soft and heavy conditions and draws a nice barrier for his SA debut for Travis Doudle. ROCKBARTON ROAD was a winner here last time beating Weekend Warrior

RACE 4 - 1:22PM Kingsford Hotel Handicap (1500 METRES)

EXTRA HOT was beaten by Jive Baby first-up here before proving too good for Tupoleu last time at 1200m. She jumps in trip and has given the impression that should suit.

FLYING ASSASSIN comes off a big run here when beaten 0.6 lengths behind Reservoir Dog when he made a long-sustained run and did well to hang on. OUR DIVINYL was solid in the market when beaten 3.9 lengths behind Chambers Bay here last time.

He looks hard to beat again. SWEET BABY BOOM was a good winner on the Parks two runs back and then followed up with a good effort when beaten 0.6 lengths behind Episodic at Morphettville. That’s good form for a race like this. Stablemate SIXTEEN REASONS is a good mare who has finished top two in both runs here. She was placed behind Sweetened on the Parks back in April and was 3rd in the Klabel race at Murray Bridge last time. The third of the Clarken/O’Shea stable SILENT DON resumes, is a winner fresh, but is best suited over further.
