This girl faces her easiest assignment to date following two disappointing efforts in the Blue Diamond Prelude for the Fillies and the Magic Night Stakes. After the Blue Diamond Prelude, she was found to be lame and ended up going back to the trials. She was specked in the Magic Night Stakes which wound up too tough, especially with the track conditions mixed with the opposition. She has had two nice trials this time in, is drawn well, and gets the winkers off. With the likelihood of a soft track, she should get every chance to be in the finish.
I don’t mind this girl to round out the afternoon at Newcastle at nice each-way odds. Two runs backed she smashed her opposition in a benchmark 66 at Taree before dropping back to the 1200m at Scone and being beaten by almost four lengths back in third. She goes back up to 1300m, drops back to her own sex and she has drawn the inside barrier on her home track. She will be in front a long way, so she will give us a big sight!
Best Bets Our Devonport Horse Racing Tips for the weekend. Boom Dot Com (Devonport Race 6 No. 3)/ Rebel Factor (Devonport Race 6 No. 5) Think this is a race in two, despite FREELANCER likely coming up short. I can’t have it. Keen to be with both BOOM DOT COM and REBEL FACTOR. BOOM DOT COM resumed in an unsuitable race on a wet deck at Launny and really found the line.

Best bet | Race 2 #5 Ice In Vancouver I’m surprised he’s not clear favourite here. There’s so many positives in his favour, most notably the fitness edge on his rivals and the super lightweight. Apprentice Angela Jones can get down to 52kg for this ride and it means he’ll carry 6kg less than main rivals Ef Troop and Racecourse Road. He comes here off two impressive wins to start his preparation and has only been defeated once from six starts at this 1000m sprint trip. In the small field
Best Bets Our Morphettville Horse Racing Tips for the weekend. The feature race is the Group 3 Spring Stakes (race 7).
