Sanders Fodder Maiden Plate Tips (Race 2)
Gawler Roughie - Race 2 No. 13 Miss Miduki
From a fast family is this filly by Bel Esprit, a three-year-old that is out of the dam Azna, a half-sister to tough front-runner Periduki who won 25 races over a long career which included a victory at Listed level.
Her jump out on June 4 was a good piece of work, landing straight on the speed and travelling well throughout an 800m heat that she easily could've taken out and now returns to her home circuit for trainer Gary Searle.
While she did fold up late in that debut assignment at Murray Bridge, leading against the off-speed pattern of that event on a Soft 7 surface wasn't exactly easy and with natural improvement, could be a big improver at huge odds.
GJ Civil Handicap Tips (Race 5)
Gawler Best Bet - Race 5 No. 10 Miss Mucinni
Although it was only a midweek Murray Bridge affair, there was plenty to like about the debut victory from this filly back in March when soaking up early pressure and sprinting away late for a very professional win.
Trainer David Jolly elected to tip the daughter of So You Think straight out and she has been sighted ahead of this return defeating La Richesse (71 rater) in a Gawler jump out on June 28, again working effortlessly.
With mostly Country/Provincial Maiden and Class 1 form through this line up, it doesn't look a strong three-year-old race and with tactical speed from gate four, she looks well placed to progress further on Saturday.
Terrace Function Centre Handicap Tips (Race 6)
Gawler Next Best Bet - Race 6 No. 6 Great Diviner
Eased right backed early from a wide draw in his May 22 return here despite jumping well, Great Diviner was just there to get back and hit the line first-up, which he did in restricted room against more seasoned rivals.
The knock was staying at 1000m off that great return and that's proven to be correct, but only just, with his turn-of-foot almost him there over Tanja's Dream on June 5, a filly that completed a winning hat-trick in the process.
The son Shamus Award relished the extra furlong on June 19 when landing good bets for us despite getting home in the inferior ground, defeating Munster (won last week) and Motell, a progressive middle-distance galloper who was enormous last Saturday.
Gawler Equine Pool Handicap Tips (Race 8)
Gawler Value Bet - Race 8 No. 2 Li'l Hank
A winner over this track/trip and grade in January when carrying an extra kilo as to what he is here, this gelding is projecting for another win if the first-up effort on the Parks circuit was any indication.
In a Benchmark 72 and on what is a notoriously hard circuit to make ground on, Li'l Hank flashed late for second behind Midnight Storm, a useful sprinter that is rated well above anything in this line-up.
Although plain when backed into favouritism second-up, he didn't look at all comfortable on that Heavy 9 surface, so if we can forgive that recent flop, he's a big chance here at a fair price now dropping further in grade.
