RACE 1 - 10:57AM Festival Hire Handicap (1200 METRES)
KARACASU strips fitter for two runs back, he was good behind Silver On Red first-up before being unsuited when back on a slow tempo in the Tobin Bronze behind Seradess and the form out of that race is very good. QUEMAN has won his past two at Morphettville and draws a nice barrier. VALROCK has won three of seven. MISTER ME competed in the Sandown Guineas and was good winning first-up at Ballarat. LAKEHURST comes off a Gawler maiden win while Victorian NIGHTSTICK finished off well behind Sempreinte at Pakenham last time and won an Ararat maiden on debut. Blinkers go on here.
SELECTIONS: 1 KARACASU, 3 Queman, 2 Mister Me, 5 Valaroc
PLAY: Keen on KARACASU to find winning form.

Just one of these has race experience. TEST THE LAW who was good behind Aitch Two Oh at Morphettville on debut. There has been some early money for Victorian I’M OVER DANCING who is a half to Hong Kong galloper Master Eight. He's won three of his four jump-outs. The McEvoy debutant JAY JAY FLYER trialled only fairly but has jumped out well at Ballarat since winning under a hold. MORE REWARD looked very good winning a recent jump-out here beating GOLDEN AKEED. LADIES LUNCH jumped out OK at Morphettville back in January. CLUB PUNTER won a recent jump-out here and the Roslyn Day stable is enjoying a good run. THANKS BRUCE won a jump-out on the same day.

RACE 3 - 12:07PM Elders Livestock & Wool Maiden Plate (1200 METRES)
STARTS WITH HELLO made good ground form a long way back when 2nd behind Gloved on debut. He draws a nice barrier and should take some beating here. FONSALETTE has been bursting to win a race and made good ground behind Queman last time. She draws out but should run well here on her home track. SIR ARMINIUS made good ground from the back behind Smiling From Above at Gawler and looks an improving type who will appreciate the extra trip. LEGLESS LADY resumes and showed ability in some handy races.
SELECTIONS: 7 STARTS WITH HELLO, 12 Fonsalette, 6 Sir Arminius, 13 Legless Lady
PLAY: Watching on here.
RACE 4 - 12:42PM Carlton Draught Maiden Plate (1200 METRES)
VAIN FOX was runner-up at Morphettville back in February on the Parks track and resumed with an OK effort at Ballarat running 4th behind Heavenly Eagle after racing on speed. The blinkers go off, but he should run well. SEGAL could be an improver here. He's been specked at his past two starts in early markets before being scratched. LADY DE LUNE wasn't asked to do a lot in a recent jump-out here. ANJOPIN was a big drifter in betting before being narrowly beaten behind Kasami here on debut in January. JEDIAH trialled well behind Londrex.
SELECTIONS: 7 VAIN FOX, 2 Segal, 12 Lady De Lune, 3 Anjopin
PLAY: Something each-way SEGAL.
RACE 5 - 1:17PM Mulch N More Handicap (2500 METRES)
IRISH BUTTERFLY is a winner here and liked the way he ran through the line running 2nd behind Sound Of Cannons at Sandown last time. He draws out but gets in well and looks the one to beat. TOYETIC has won three of his past four and was too strong for Ammo Loco at Gawler last weekend. This is a step up in class. YOUNG HOSTESS has sound Victorian form winning at Geelong and Warrnambool before thrown up in class and running well behind Pesto at Flemington last time. That's good form for this. Stablemate PRINCE ZIGGY has been around the mark, running 3rd behind her stablemate at Warrnambool two runs back and gets the claim. ARROWTOWN GIRL is another Victorian who brings some good form here chasing home Water Into Wine at Geelong last time, the winner tackling the SA Derby.
SELECTIONS: 2 IRISH BUTTERFLY, 4 Young Hostess, 7 Arrowtown Girl, 3 Toyetic
PLAY: Keen on IRISH BUTTERFLY.
RACE 6 - 1:52PM Mckechnie Concreting Handicap (1000 METRES)
Good race. David Jolly has the key here with four runners. SILVER ON RED was good winning two starts back before he led and was only gathered late behind Rushaway Lad in a strong race. HOWL comes out the same race and was travelling well before he was blocked for a run. His overall record is very good. MR HAVE A CHAT trialled nicely before being well beaten at his SA debut behind I Am Bene, but this looks a suitable assignment and he was scratched from Wednesday for this. HUNTLEY LADY is the fourth of the Jolly runners and she was a good winner here back in November and was placed behind Lady Dunmore at Morphettville before a break. SIDEARM is a talented horse. He was good behind I Am Bene first up from a spell and could be the swooper late and is an appealing price. THE GOV is a watch a former Kiwi first-up for Shayne Cahill. He draws out but is sure to measure-up in SA. REJINSKY is an interesting runner first-up in SA for John Macmillan and was a Tamworth winner three starts back and was short in the market at the Gold Coast last time. Victorian REWARD WITH RETURN has an OK fresh record and comes out of some good 955m races at Moonee Valley last time in. MY RUBY was good running 3rd behind Sunny Green
SELECTIONS: 2 HOWL, 9 Sidearm, 1 Silver On Red, 11 The Gov
PLAY: Keen on HOWL, saver on SIDEARM.
RACE 7 - 2:27PM Northpoint Murraylands Handicap (1200 METRES)
Keen to see the return of EN FRANCAIS who created a big impression at Gawler on debut before she was narrowly beaten by She's Stylish and then Exalted Fire here when she led. She has shown a lot of promise and drawing out wide can work in her favour. JUSTAKIDD has a nice record and finished off well behind Mac 'N' Cheese two starts back and then as a couple of months between runs before running on strongly behind Queman at Morphettville. The jump in trip suits and he gets his chance. KOLOKAR made ground behind Queman first-up form a spell and should be thereabouts. LIANNE is back in trip but is two from two here on her home deck.
SELECTIONS: 11 EN FRANCAIS, 10 Justakidd, 4 Kolokar, 5 Lianne
PLAY: EN FRANCAIS might be too good for these.
RACE 8 - 3:07PM Magic Millions Handicap (1800 METRES)
RAPID RAISER was a good winner here over the mile two runs back before closing nicely from a mile back behind Morty last time. He draws a nice barrier and can bounce back to winning form. RESIDUE has been very good his past two in good races running 4th in the Chairman's behind Jungle Magnate before he dropped back in trip and was beaten 1.5 lengths behind Illation in the Guineas last time. He draws a good barrier and gets his chance. THRILL KILL is going well and chased home Rapid Raiser tow starts back before another solid effort behind Morty in a good quality race.TILL IT’S OVER was good winning at Mt Gambier showing a nice turn of foot which could be lethal in a race like this. KING OF PHAROAHS was a Bendigo winner three starts back before being beaten 20 lengths behind Jungle Magnate in the Derby. The drop in trip should suit. INSAAF was a good winner back in class at Strathalbyn last time while PRINCE OF FENCES was heavily backed behind Does It at Morphettville last time.
SELECTIONS: 12 RAPID RAISER, 13 Residue, 2 Thrill Kill, 6 Till It's Over
PLAY: Having something on TILL IT'S OVER at odds.
RACE 9 - 3:47PM Premi-Air Refrigeration and Air Conditioning Services Handicap (1200 METRES)
CALYPSO REIGN was a good winner at Morphettville beating Point Blaze two starts back before he finished hard behind Rushaway Lad last time. He's never missed a placed here with two wins from four starts and looks well placed. NONAME LANE is a winner at his only start here and he was solid behind Munster first-up from a spell. He should get a good run here from the gate and looks a major player. MAGNETIC EDGE maps well from a good barrier and his recent form is solid for a race like this. LEFT HAND MAN is another who races well here and comes off a solid Sandown effort. TOFF LOVE defeated Howl at Oakbank before a handy effort behind Rushaway Lad. EXTRA TIME was good making ground from a long way back behind MUNSTER last time who draws a good barrier. SOLAR GALE return from the Pioneer Sprint, his trial leading in was very good. BOLD STAR was very good two starts back an gets some weight relief from the inside barrier. EXTREME THRILL draws wide and hasn't raced since chasing home Lighthouse at Flemington in December.
SELECTIONS: 4 CALYPSO REIGN, 14 Noname Lane, 7 Magnetic Edge, 6 Left Hand Man
PLAY: Betting around CALYPSO REIGN each-way.
RACE 10 - 4:25PM Cox Electrical Handicap (1400 METRES)
SACRED ARMOUR was an eye-catching effort behind stablemate Rushaway Lad at Morphettville. He has a very good record will get a nice run from a middle barrier and could be the horse with the most upside. CASTLE OF KINGS resumed with a soft win at Gawler. He's a horse who has always shown ability and will give a race like this a shake. IRONEDGE had specking and won well first up for Clayton Douglas and can run well here from a middle barrier. BOLT BY comes off a good win beating subsequent winner Insaaf at Murray Bridge. He should get a good run here. LACRIMA draws well and was good behind Skilled Bunch at Morphettville last start. BOOM BOOM STREET wasn't beaten far first-up from a spell and the stable has a great record when the bring horses here. JAAMINT raced very well last time in work and plenty to like about her return behind Sunny Green.
