bet365 Say From SA: Morphettville – Saturday, 12th August 2023

Analysis and suggested bets for the nine-race card at Morphettville on Saturday.

It's Behemoth Stakes Day at Morphettville on a Saturday where a competitive 12-horse field has been assembled to tackle the Group 3 6 f contest.

Formerly known as the Spring Stakes, the name change has come this year after the big bustling bay gelding has since been retired after going back-to-back in the race in 2021/22.

The talented R & C Jolly mare See You In Heaven heads the market, last being seen at Flemington back in February when beaten narrowly the Group 3 company.

Boognish from the W Clarken & N O'Shea stable is the most lightly raced horse in the field and presents as a value pick following her eye-catching finish in the Listed Lightning Stakes here a fortnight ago.

As for my bet365 best bet of the day, I look a few races prior (Race 6) where I'm siding with another horse from the Clarken & O'Shea team in Sixteen Reasons.

After shedding the maiden tag with a fair bit up her sleeve when resuming, the four-year-old mare produced a brave chase to the line last start when finishing just shy of her stablemate (Boognish) in the Lightning Stakes.

She enjoys some weight relief as she takes on the older horses in what looks an easier assignment and it's hard to not see her playing a major role in the finish.

Another one I'm keen on the chances of comes the race beforehand (Race 5) with the Charlotte Littlefield-trained Cable Dancer.

The four-year-old son of Cable Bay was below his best first up at Moonee Valley when always well back on a heavily leaders' biased day of racing.

Striping fitter with that run under his belt, Cable Dancer is drawn favourably with Todd Pannell piloting. Expecting him to prove tough to stop.
