Race 7 No. 7 Sir Johnson

The Gary Searle-trained gelding looks like a good bet here. 

He turned the corner three starts back when he had no luck against Swipe Me Right at Morphettville - who has went on to win in better company since - before beating Artistic Focus in a close finish two starts back. 

His run last start behind Vahash was brilliant. They went really slow up in front that day which went against him. He should relish the step up in distance to 1600m. 

Sir Johnson drops in weight, draws well from barrier three, and goes up to the mile which he has been crying out for.

Race 3 No. 13 Fountain Of Youth

It’s a rule of thumb not to bet in maidens, but there’s always an exception and we've found one here in Fountain Of Youth. 

This three-year-old filly is bred terrifically, by Turffontein and out of Lassetoile, and I liked her trial at Murray Bridge leading up to this race. 

She trialled behind a horse called Roccabascerana, who is now two-from-two after beating the talented Hafaawa last-start. 

They ran a really quick time in that trial and she finished fifth, hardly being touched to the line. 

They’ll go quick up in front in this race and she maps perfectly from barrier seven to get a nice sit on them, and then overpower them in the straight.
