Sat July 10 Young Guns Day Benchmark 54 Handicap Tips (Race 4)
Gawler Best Bet - Race 4 No. 1 Honey Go Lightly
Down in class and now with three runs under her belt this preparation, this mare has found a very winnable assignment at Gawler on Wednesday following a runner-up finish last start.
Honey Go Lightly competed at Strathablyn in that May 26 contest, which can be a horses for courses circuit and she found The Publikin too sharp late on that occasion, a galloper that was due to peak that day on his home track.
Winning on her stable debut before a third in Saturday BM60, the daughter of Wandjina was fair on resumption following that over the Warnambool Carnival and in a BM54 with just 56kg after the claim, she gets her chance here from a low draw.

Gawler Roughie - Race 7 No. 6 Promesa D'oro
Given he is first-up having not raced since breaking the Maiden at Gawler April 4, they have opened this gelding at a long price off no public trials or jump outs, but he's seemingly one of the few with upside in this field.
With the blinkers going and resuming at 1500m, it would be a somewhat of strange move to set such a lightly raced galloper this task at just start four if he was underdone, especially given the debut was over 1000m in a Saturday Maiden at Morphettville.
Promesa D'oro was good following that behind Koruto (subsequent city winner), but did find the 1100m too sharp before defeating Mug's Game over this track and trip, a mare that bolted in on May 16 when breaking through.

Gawler Value Bet - Race 8 No. 2 Pretty Glass
After winning six of her first 11 starts and then tipped out following a competitive effort at Group Two level, the future did look bright for this mare, but off a long spell, she never quite found that 2019 level again.
Pretty Glass has still managed to produce multiple competitive efforts at Metropolitan level as recent as last spring, in much tougher company to what she faces here and her two runs this campaign have both had merit at BM68 level.
The seven-year-old did a stack of work first-up in a fast run affair where she was only beaten a few lengths and in her May 20 attempt, was badly held up at a key stage in the straight and again, has only been defeated two lengths on the line.
