The carnival has ended and we move away from Morphettville to the wide expanses of Murray Bridge.
Our bets are toward the end of the day with the best of them in Race 9 with Calypso Reign in fine form.
The 5yo gelding, who has never missed the placings here, has come back to racing in a very nice fashion.
He was excellent finding the line first up over 1200m and then stepped back in ground to just miss in a tougher grade.
Back down in weight after the claim, he can sit midfield and wide but with cover and surge up the centre which is the track pattern at Murray Bridge.
Given the field size and the fact there are several given hopes, we should get better odds on the day.
Over to the last where Bolt By looks great each way odds going off his first run in six months.
At this very course and distance, he was back near the tail around halfway but then began to move into it.
Not that far away on the corner, he worked over the top of them and was drawing clear late.
There was support for him in that race and this seems almost the same circumstances where he can be the strongest on the line.
The odds have already gone but still happy to play him each way.
