Mornington Tips, Betting Preview & Best Bet for Thursday, September 12

It's the R U OK? Day race meeting today where Mornington play host to an eight race card. 

The track should race soft and possibly leader biased with the rail out eight metres, but I still think if you are good enough you can make up ground. 

There looks a possible Guineas horse early in the card with the R U OK Handicap the highlight.

Race 4 No. 3 Grinzinger Allee

This three-year-old colt was very impressive first up beating Streets Of Suemori at Cranbourne by two and a half lengths. There was talk after the race of a possible tilt at the Caulfield Guineas this preparation which may not be out of discussions just yet.

He will likely lead the small field from the good gate and try and run them into the ground with the rail out. He has had a trial in between runs at Cranbourne on September 2 which he won on very heavy ground so he will not have lost any fitness.

This will not be the only race this son of Reliable Man wins as he steps up in trip for bigger and better races.

Mornington Next Best Bet

Race 5 No. 6 Spensierato

She stepped out to the longer trip last start at Geelong for the first time and was good from the back to run third. A step back to the 2050m for this event looks a good one for me, especially at Mornington with the shorter straight and she can probably utilise her turn of foot a bit better.

The form from three back looks incredibly strong behind Benitoite who has since won and finished not far behind Super Titus in a Group race.

She comes into the race with 57kg and Ben Melham aboard who is a good pickup.

She enjoys the soft conditions and can make her presence felt late in the piece.
