Lincoln Moore's Saturday Preview

Race by race preview by Lincoln Moore.

RACE 1 - 12:17PM Thomas Farms Handicap (1100 METRES)

SHE DANCES is a Victorian who won at Sandown on debut and made good ground form the back of the field when beaten 3.3 lengths behind Aitch Two Oh at Flemington in the Red Roses. ZUFASTA got back and was wide before he only battled behind Kiki Express in the Rebel Raider Final last start, he was impressive winning his previous start and maps to get a nice run here. PRECONI won her maiden on the Ballarat synthetic before leading when 2nd behind Sun Samurai at Ararat last time. She draws out but should run well. NOBLE MAGNATE was a good winner on debut, likewise stablemate HEAVEN'S WISH was a winner on debut before failing on a soft track last start. LUCKY FORTUNA was a smart winner on debut before failing in the same race last time. TEST THE LAW resumes and was a Murray Bridge winner four runs back, he went to the paddock after an OK effort behind He's Heaven in the Oaklands Plate.

SELECTIONS: 2 SHE DANCES, 3 Zufasta, 5 Preconi, 1 Test The Law
PLAY: Something small on ZUFASTA who looks over the odds.

RACE 2 - 12:52PM Furphy Handicap (1600 METRES)

OH MO hasn't had much go right his past couple, he flashed late behind Hopon Harry and looks the one to beat here. LAKE'S FOLLY was good running 2nd behind My Khalifa last start after being specked at odds. MAGNETIC EDGE is another who caught the eye last time and maps to get a gun run here. SPLASH SOME CASH was brave behind Montign after leading last time and will take some running down with the light weight.

SELECTIONS: 3 OH 5 Lake's Folly, 6 Magnetic Edge, 4 Splash Some Cash
PLAY: Keen on OH MO.

RACE 3 - 1:27PM Twilight Races at Morphettville - Friday December 16th Maiden Plate (1100 METRES)

CROWN MOSHE comes off a good effort when 2nd behind Hot Sparky at Murray Bridge and was scratched from midweek for this. FLY THE LINE ran well at odds in the same race and must be respected. ARTY MISS led and was run down by Zufasta here on debut before again showing good speed before stopping late behind Foxy Femme at Gawler. She will give a bold sight. SHEMA had some support at odds when narrowly beaten at her local debut behind Victory Time at Balaklava and should run well. Victorian SHOURI LAD had handy Victorian form before running down the track here behind Fleurieu Flipper but does get blinkers for the first time. JEDIAH is another who gets blinkers and was specked at big odds at Swan Hill last start.

SELECTIONS: 7 CROWN MOSHE, 6 Arty Miss, 8 Fly The Line, 10 Shema
PLAY: Not a race I am keen on.

RACE 4 - 2:02PM The Junction Handicap (2500 METRES)

DESIGNS looks perfectly placed. She was a dominant winner here back in April and was 2nd at Moe two starts back before she flopped on a heavy track at Bendigo. Her best is good, she draws the inside and is the horse to beat. SEBONNA is the danger. He's come back well beating Wolf Prince two starts back before The Map was too smart for him last time. He gets the claim and looks the danger.  ROBE RAIDER was luckless in the home straight last week when she probably should have won, running 5th behind Wolf Prince. She'll get a nice run here. OATH OF OMERTA was a winner here three starts back and his latest at Ballarat was OK behind Fifth Position. Back to 1 9⁄16 m looks ideal. SO BENE is another suited out in trip and is going to knock over a field like this at some point.

SELECTIONS: 2 DESIGNS, 1 Sebonna, 9 Robe Raider, 3 Oath Of Omerta
PLAY: Backing DESIGNS and something on ROBE RAIDER at big odds (1/4).

RACE 5 - 2:42PM Grand Syndicates Handicap (1050 METRES)

WINNING REVOLUTION is a former Victorian now with Jon O'Connor. He was placed here behind Aitch Two Oh in the Without Fear on debut before winning a Sale maiden. He hasn't raced since he was last in a field of six on a heavy track at Moe in October but looks very well placed here despite a wide gate and has jumped out nicely. BAJAN BELLE raced on speed and was far too good for rivals at Gawler last start. She maps to roll forward and give this a big shake. THE MAGISTRATE is going well and defeated The Gov last time out. He draws a sticky gate but must be respected. FIELDS OF ATHENRY defeated Rich Gina two starts back before chasing home Chosen Blonde last time. She draws wide but is more than capable. Stablemate HONGBAO was a Geelong winner in March and has trialled nicely for his return to racing. LEBANESE TRADER is a watch at his Australian debut for Shayne Cahill. He's been in the money at 7 of 11 starts and was well beaten in a Morphettville trial back in August.

SELECTIONS: 11 WINNING REVOLUTION, 4 Bajan Belle, 2 The Magistrate, 9 Fields Of Athenry
PLAY: Happy to watch on.

RACE 6 - 3:22PM The Fotobase Group Handicap (1600 METRES)

MOUNTAIN RANGE draws a wide gate but was very good when 2nd behind Boolcunda King at his local debut. He finds a winnable race here. WILD IMAGINATION was 2nd at her first two runs back from a spell before another good effort beaten 1.1 lengths behind Calla Dream last start. She gets an inside gate and should be fighting out the finish. EXALTED FIRE has been in good form and was on speed when 5th behind Boolcunda King last time. RESIDUE was a winner here two starts back and maps well from a middle gate. MOTELL was a Murray Bridge winner first-up from a spell and has a good record here. DR DEE DEE has been in good in two runs back form a break, the latest when 2nd at Donald and should be in the mix. Fellow South East galloper WILD WILLY wasn't beaten far last time out.

SELECTIONS: 9 MOUNTAIN RANGE, 11 Wild Imagination, 7 Exalted Fire, 6 Residue
PLAY: Backing MOUNTAIN RANGE each-way.

RACE 7 - 4:02PM Transliquid Services Handicap (1200 METRES)

PARAMEDIC had market support and got back before making good ground behind Manage The Cycle first-up in He jumps from the 5 f to 5 f and should give this a shake. LAST GIRL LOVE was narrowly beaten by Miss Langtry here in April before stepping up in class running 6th behind Illation in the Adelaide Guineas. She's first-up for Jon O'Connor and looks nicely placed first-up. WHO'S CLANG was a winner at the Parks on debut but draws a sticky gate here. LI'L PIPER was good winner at Gawler last time out and should get a nice run.

SELECTIONS: 4 PARAMEDIC, 3 Last Girl Love, 8 Who's Clang, 11 Li'l Piper
PLAY: Keen on PARAMEDIC each-way.

RACE 8 - 4:42PM City Of Marion Stakes (1200 METRES)

Good race with some mares on the up taking on the seasoned sprinters. CALLA DREAM won't know herself with 119lbs after winning well with the big weight last start. RICH GINA is another who has been in great form winning consecutive races before she was narrowly beaten last start. KEEP READING maps well from the good barrier and was perfectly ridden to beat Struck By last time. The best version of CHAMPAGNE DREAMS would be right in the mix here, she won the Redelva in April and should be ready to improve here and is way over the odds. MANHATTEN TIMES is a good horse who still finished hard behind Keep Reading last time and he has the ability to get over the top of them here. OUTLAW'S REVENGE hasn't raced since the Spring Stakes and he won this race last year, he has placed at 2 of 3 first-up runs. ASHFORD STREET ran well behind Jigsaw at Cranbourne last time. MORVADA can run a cheeky race. HE'S A BALTER maps well from the barrier and must be respected.

SELECTIONS: 9 CALLA DREAM, 8 Manhatten Times, 11 Champagne Dreams, 13 Rich Gina
PLAY: Something on CHAMPAGNE DREAMS at big odds (1/4).

RACE 9 - 5:30PM Happy 40th Matt Clemow Handicap (1100 METRES)

Only a few who can't win. SILVER ON RED has a good record and claimed the scalp of Extremely Lucky in April. His fresh record is very good and he maps to get a perfect run. ASTON RAPOVA is going well and was too good for Magic Max first-up from a break. He gets the claim and a good gate to be in the finish again. SMOKIN' VAL has a good record and looked ready to win before fading behind Ocean Reward last start. LADY SIMONE is another racing very well and she just missed behind Calla Dream last start. TAHNEE TRADITION has a good first-up record and Barend takes the ride. RUSHAWAY LAD won well first-up from a spell and he draws wide but gets a claim. OUTPOST will be on speed from the good barrier. He was a winner two starts back and more than capable back in class.

SELECTIONS: 6 SILVER ON RED, 1 Aston Rapova, 10 Smokin' Val, 12 Lady Simone
PLAY: Backing SILVER ON RED each-way.
