Say From SA: Morphettville – 11th December 2021

Thinking there is some value around the Adelaide card this week as they hold the Christmas Handicap meeting.

In that main race, He's A Balter looks well placed on his Melbourne form coming back home.

The 5yo has raced through the Spring carnival races, all at Caulfield and the majority of them excellent efforts.

Remember that Caulfield is a very similar track to Morphettville with the chute start and he won't be meeting the standard of some of those opponents.

He won a good sprint in September then took on a much too tough Caulfield Sprint before being close up in the Doveton Stakes.

This is the first time he's been back to 6 f in a very long while and at the odds, he's a real each way play.

For the main play, I Am News is another heading over from Victoria with good form angles for this type of Benchmark racing.

He was going around in BM58s but then stepped up to the mile at the midweeks in town and led all the way.

The gelding has clearly been looking for ground and so the mile and a quarter is right where he'd want to be.

Given how the strategy went last time, they'll likely roll forward from the outside draw and try to control the race.

He might even run shorter on the day.
