Gawler Tips January 2

Thank You Phil Mueller Maiden Plate Tips (Race 3)

Gawler Next Best Brt - Race 3 No. 5 Montepulciano

From the Richard & Chantelle Jolly stable is this three-year-old who was well supported in a good maiden on debut ($5.50-$4.80) but was a little plain and was sent straight to the paddock as result (tongue-tie now on, so possibly choked down).

That event was taken out by a handy stable mate in Alleboom (winner at Flemington on Melbourne Cup Day) with So You Can in second (since won two in town) and following a pair of third-placed finishes to begin this preparation, she went to Melbourne and caught the eye late behind Beltoro (since placed behind the very smart Ayrton) and Field Of Roses, who had won his prior two outings in Victoria.

That reads superbly coming back to a Maiden in South Australia and providing Montepulciano can get the breaks from barrier one under Jake Toeroek, then she should be hard to beat off those aforementioned form lines.


Adelaide Plains Bloodstock Handicap Tips (Race 6)

Gawler Best Bet - Race 6 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, but simply just found 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 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.

Taken Off was a tragedy beaten via his last start on December 19 in a messy watch for his supporters and finding a similar contest here along with firmer footing, he has to be given a chance to make amends.

Terrace Function Centre Handicap Tips (Race 9)

Gawler Value Bet - Race 9 No. 9 Love From Lucy

A winner over this track and trip back in May, Love From Lucy has been ticking over fairly in four runs this preparation and here in what's by far the easiest assignment she's faced this time in, this mare is an each-way hope in the last from Gawler.

After finding line okay at 1250m and then over two efforts at a mile, this four-year-old attempted the $100,000 Alcopop Series Final where from an impossible position at the rear, was doing her best work late in a leader-dominated affair and was it was far too big of an ask to finish any closer under those circumstances.

She should find this much easier back to a rather modest Benchmark 60 and with senior hoop Sairyn Fawke taking back the reins this Saturday, this John Hickmott-trained galloper is capable of figuring in a race of this strength.
