Gawler Tips December 19

Holdfast Insurance Benchmark 68 Handicap Tips (Race 3)

Gawler Best Bet - Race 3 No. 2 Taken Off

We were with this five-year-old when he was resuming on the December 5 Morphettville program where he was well supported and had every chance, when simply just finding one better in Just Chipping Away who sailed past in the best part of the track.

It is worth noting that winner had defeated Trip the start prior who arrived to that off a winning hat-trick and just missed at Listed level at her latest, so the form is there and this son of Toorak Toff improved off the first-up effort last preparation when defeating Thompson's Reward, who has since won twice in much stronger grades.

This doesn't appear to be any harder with his biggest threat the favourite Tully's Gold who is yet to finish outside the top two from seven attempts, but will likely be working early from a wide gate and at his best, Taken Off is the more talented galloper of the two.

Cornerstone Stud Sir Prancealot Series Final Tips (Fillies & Mares Benchmark 64)(Qualified Horses) (Race 7)

Gawler Value Bet - Race 7 No. 8 Tinny Bar Blue

Although recent history (last 12 months) doesn't reflect it, local trainer Gary Searle is traditionally very strong on his home track and I'd be surprised if this Sir Prancealot series final wasn't the target for this four-year-old who should be close to her top now third-up from a spell.

Tinny Bar Blue has a lack of first-up form and needed the gallop fresh in what a still definite pass mark before heading to Balaklava on November 28, where she looked to peak late when chasing the leader, but found again and ultimately just lacked the turn-of-foot of Icecrusher who is no slouch.

Barend Vorster remains in the saddle on this grey mare and from barrier two where they'll get a soft run in transit, she is firmly in the each-way calculations with a little more improvement predicted this Saturday.

Adelaide Plains Bloodstock Benchmark 58 Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Gawler Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 5 Free Hand

With the two favourites in Sylvan Crest and Nakheell drawn out, it gives this lightly raced mare a decent chance in this contest who returned with a first-up win at Strathalbyn and was a month between runs prior to the second-up tilt there.

Working home against the on-speed pattern of that affair, that effort from Free Hand was full of merit as by far the pick of the closers and whilst the seven-year-old has obviously had issues over the journey, a lack of ability hasn't been high on that list.

Trainer Sharon Hayes looks to have the daughter of Written Tycoon in a good space currently and with a positive jockey change via veteran hoop Simon Price taking the reins, Free Hand does look well placed in a race that does lack quality.
