Rooboy to dictate on track

The Darryl Carrison trained Rooboy can return to the winners’ circle at the Port Lincoln Racing Club’s family day this Sunday.

The six-year-old will relish stepping out to this trip for the first time this preparation in the benchmark 80 1750-metre event and with very little early speed engaged he can go forward and dictate.

Never Doubt Us is four wins from five starts since joining the Des Courtney stable; another forward showing is expected.

Hard At It, Eye Of The World and Zipalang are all capable of winning.

Benchmark 64 1210m

Lake Jackson was a massive return to racing when a closing second behind the inform My Lesson over 100 metres, while still looking for further a repeat of that first up run will see him winning this. Best bet of the day.

Artful Rambler is the main danger but is another get back type, which makes for an interesting race as to who gets the favours up the front.

Benchmark 60 1390m

Star Mover showed enough at her first run here to suggest she will win races for the Shylie Williams yard. 

Covering plenty of ground throughout she stuck on well to run third.

Last Dip wasn't disgraced at Morphettville and might just be getting back to his best, continued improvement sees him in the finish here.

Slide Of Hand, Ticket To Paris and Heza Hussler are always a chance at this level.

Class Two 1210m

Patriot Code looks to have come back in good order this time in. He has finished his runs off nicely and in what looks a very even race he may be the way to go on an each-way basis.

Rocky Valley goes better than his form suggests and Oblique Line is a knockout hope.

Benchmark 56 1750m

Hand To Hand can go on with the job here after his breakthrough win at this track and distance last start for Julie Branford. He looks the one with the most scope for improvement.

Joken Jim and the dually-nominated Heza Hussler have won 19 races between them, while in the twilight years they must be respected in this grade.

Benchmark 56 1000m

Liverpool Striker usuallly gives a sight over the sprint trip; at the value he goes on top in a race with very little confidence.

Sandhill Jett with the right run in transit can play a part and Get Pronto could certainly win on his best form. 

Maiden 1210m

Equidant and Flash Hussy will start fancied runners but probably under the odds.

A big watch on Truffle Hunter from the Gary Searle stable who has a lot of early speed and must be respected.

Three-year-old maiden

Visiting horse Futago has a few tricks but with his explosive early toe expect the grey to pinch a break on the other fancied runner Bramfield. That advantage should be enough to see him hold on for the win.

Bramfield is the obvious danger if within striking distance with first starter Wicked Kid to finish third.

Final fields and race starting times will be declared today.
