Daralina Belle (Warwick Farm Race 6 No. 4):
This four-year-old Deep Field mare trained by Matthew Smith is unbeaten in three starts. She was slowly away and knuckled down in the last 200m to take over in the final 100m for a good 0.4 length win over 1400m at Nowra on 22 August, then hit the front at the 275m and raced away for a 4.3 length win over 1400m at Scone on 7 September. Will be hard to beat.
Your Too Good (Warwick Farm Race 8 No. 13):
This three-year-old Your Song filly trained by Mark Newnham has a win and three places from five starts. She led early but was winded late for 2.7 lengths 6th over 1200m at Gosford on 22 September, then went clear at the 250m but was nailed late for 0.2 length 2nd over 1100m at Warwick Farm on 4 October. Has the speed to overcome her wide draw and looks a nice each-way bet.
Sound Of Cannons (Warwick Farm Race 5 No. 4):
This five-year-old Nathaniel gelding trained by John O’Shea is the early favourite in this BM 72 handicap over 2400m. He kept chasing for 3.1 lengths 7th over 2000m at the Rosehill at Kembla Grange meeting on 11 September, then made some ground for 5.1 lengths 7th in the Group 3 Colin Stephen Quality over 2400m at Rosehill on 25 September. He carries 6kg more than last run. With only one win from 19 starts I am willing to risk him here.
Best bet – Race 9 # 1 Cristal Breeze Keen on this 6yo who is third-up in a much easier race. He was entered for a race up here last week, but from memory they scratched because of a sticky draw. They haven’t fared any better here as they’ve come out with the widest barrier this time. However, the map reads ok as he can come across with likely leader Barney’s Law drawn just inside him. He could sit outside the lead or one-out, one-back. His form in Sydney just looks

Kapalua Sunset (Caulfield Race 4 No. 10) Three year old daughter of Tavistock who is trained by Danny O’Brien.

Best Bets Our Morphettville Horse Racing Tips for the weekend.
