Brother’s Shadow (Morphettville Race 1 No. 1)
This two-year-old gelding trained by Travis Doudle at Morphetville has had a great start to his career with two wins from two starts. He got a good trail and ran on late for a 0.2 length win over 1100m a Gawler on 23 January, then led most of the way and held on for a 0.5 length win over 1000m at Morphettville Parks on 13 March. Expecting him to make it a hat-trick of wins.
Zoist (Morphettville Race 3 No. 3):
This three-year-old Zoustar gelding has two wins and a place from four starts. At the end of last campaign he raced up to take the lead at the 150m and drew clear for a 1.2 length win over 1400m at Murray Bridge on 20 September. Following a 23 week spell he improved then went stride for stride with the leader and got the bob in for a 0.1 length win over 1400m at Morphettville Parks on 6 March. He looks a nice bet at each-way odds.
