Consistent Calla chasing black type success

In-form mare Calla Dream chases a deserving black type victory in Saturday’s $107,250 Listed City Of Marion Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville on Saturday.

The Ron Daniel and Trish Stanbury-trained mare continued her rapid rise through the grades winning the Viddora Series Final last time out and won't know herself dropping 16lbs in the weights.

"She was there to be beaten the other day, but she's tough,'' Daniel said.

Calla Dream hasn't finished out of the first three in her past eight starts and Kayla Crowther takes the ride from barrier eight.

Crowther won the Gytrash Series Final aboard the Richard and Chantelle Jolly-trained Keep Reading who will be ridden by Jake Toeroek in the feature.

Barend Vorster rides promising mare Rich Gina who comes off a narrow defeat behind Ocean Reward in the Riziz Series Final.

"It looks a nice option for her'' co-trained Peter Blanch said.

"She's down at the weights and deserves a crack at a race like this,'' he said.

And trainer Ryan Balfour will be hoping lightning can strike for a second time in the feature with Outlaws Revenge.

Last-year's winner resumes from a short break with Dom Tourneur to ride.
