With Pleasure (Darwin Race 3 No. 2)
This five-year-old mare has four wins from her 12 starts.She finished 5.5 lengths 7th over 1550m at Morphettville Parks on 18 July on a soft track and then came to Darwin where she missed the kick and worked home steadily from a long way back for 3.7 lengths 6th over 1200m at Darwin on 4 September. She should go well and be very hard to beat.
Salty (Darwin Race 4 No. 1):
This eight-year-old Bel Esprit gelding ran on well out wide for 0.8 length 2nd over 1300m at Darwin on 3 August, then rushed home late from well back in the field for a length win over 1200m at Darwin on 4 September. On the basis of his last two starts he looks a good each-way bet.
