Say From SA: Murray Bridge – Saturday, 27th May 2023

With the Goodwood and the Adelaide carnival in the rear vison mirror we head to Murray Bridge on Saturday where a competitive nine-race card has been assembled.

After what was a thrilling Autumn carnival in South Australia, we are back at Murray Bridge for Saturday racing and while we are without black type competition there is still plenty of intriguing betting options on the table for punters.

For our best of the day, we are putting our faith in the Prince of Pakenham, Peter Moody, and his speedy gelding Outback Action (race 6).

The progressive four-year-old has shown plenty of promise in his eight career starts to date and that was on full display at the latest when failing to give his rivals a sniff, in a dominant pillar-to-post victory at Mornington.

Shouldering a terrific record over this journey, expect in-form hoop Jason Holder to waste little time finding the front and proving too sharp for them.

As for the best each-way chance for the day's action, we look to thr penultimate race over the 5 f where I'm keen on the Andrew Noblet-trained Moon And Back.

The Exosphere mare has been unwanted by the market in her two runs back, but it was her last start effort at Mornington that peaked my interest.

After being slowly away and making the turn last the fence, Moon And Back was forced to weave a passage in the run home but once balancing up savaged line for fifth. Beaten 2.1L, the winner (Fasuto) has subsequently narrowly missed in a competitive bm90 at Flemington.

That form reads favourably for this bm68 contest and striping fitter third-up Moon And Back should be ready to find her peak at a juicy quote.



Best: Race 6 #7 Outback Action @ $2.10

Best Each-Way: Race 8 #6 Moon And Back @ $17/$5
