bet365 Say From SA: Morphettville Parks – Saturday, 2nd March 2024

3 minute read

Rattling home into second in the City of Marion last weekend, My Khalfia looks primed to go one better on the Parks track this Saturday.

Returning in near career-best form just seven days ago, when catching plenty of eyes with his barnstorming finish behind Snapped in the Listed City of Marion Stakes, the G Richards & D Moyle-trained My Khalifa picks himself as this week's bet365 best bet.

Usually given at least a couple of weeks between his first and second up runs, the partnership is trying a different tactic to counteract the five-year-old's poor second up record.

Producing a Racing and Sports rating of 103 in his return in the Listed feature, just four pounds off his career peak, the son of Pride Of Dubai steps out to preferred trip on the short back up, where seven of eight career wins have come over.

After drawing 14/14 last weekend, My Khalifa is drawn much kinder this time and has shown to be able to hold a prominent spot when drawing low.

Dropping back to BM84 grade, My Khalifa only rises a kilo with the 2kg claimer engaged in Margaret Collett and if the pair can utilise the barrier, they are sure to take plenty of stopping.

As for the best each way play, we head to the last where Dale's Rocket looks value in a tight contest.

In a race brimming with in-form horses, Dale's Rocket is certainly one of those and looks to have been slightly missed by the market in early betting.

Finishing in the top two in his last four outings, including two victories, the Vanessa Hutchinson-trained gelding posses plenty of early dash and is drawn to advantage from the inside pillar.

With a handful of ratings matching those much firmer in the market, including early favourite Tahnnee Treasure, there's plenty of positives in favour Dale's Rocket to suggest he will be in this for a major portion of the race and at the price is an irresistible each way prospect.
