Mornington Mail - March 24

It might be Golden Slipper day but the Victorian meeting heads to the Peninsula for Mornington Cup day.
We’ll touch on that race but there are also some promising horses on the card. It could be a day for big prices.
For the value let’s go first to the Cup and give Golden Mane an each way play.
He keeps running honest races from around the speed over the 1 1⁄4 m. Finally he steps up in distance which has to help.
Not over this trip for two years, he brings in that Homesman/Almandin form line from the Mornington Cup Prelude.
Given how those two ran in the Australian Cup, just a little improvement could be enough.
Racing down on the limit now at 1 1⁄2 m won’t hurt much either and you take on Lindsay Park in a Cup race at the moment at your peril.
We will also get a good price about Silent Command who takes on the Mornington Guineas.
He goes first up at the mile but that can be a positive decision as his two wins are over that journey.
Back in the September he won the Morphettville Guineas. In that he defeated Bring Me Roses by a head so that stands
They’ve secured Linda Meech so hoping he rolls over the field and gets on the pace which is rarely a bad idea at this track.
EACH WAY PLAY (1): Race 7 #8 Golden Mane @ $14
EACH WAY PLAY (2): Race 8 #3 Silent Command @ $23
