Murray Bridge Best Bet - Race 2 No. 2 Outlaws Revenge
Ryan Balfour looks to have a nice galloper on his hands in Outlaws Revenge, who had excuses on debut where he was a tardy away which proved costly, but he caught the eye late behind the very impressive Zoushine who franked that with a big win at Caulfield on Boxing Day.
With natural improvement at start two along with jumping cleaner, the son of Reward For Effort made it a one act affair at Gawler when bolting into score over the 1100m, completing that journey in around seven lengths faster than the Benchmark 58 that card and compared to the strong Benchmark 82 taken out by Terbium, it stacked up very well for Maiden class (near identical last 600m).
This three-year-old has been kept up to the mark with a nice jump-out win at Morphettville on Tuesday and with tactical versatility, jockey Dom Tourneur has options from barrier eight on this bigger Murray Bridge circuit, which he should relish.

Murray Bridge Value Bet - Race 3 No. 2 Von Costa Glass
After securing a second-up win in August prior to a fifth-placed finish in town, this veteran was set some decent asks with a hat-trick of appearances at Listed level and was quite competitive in the last of those efforts with a two-length defeat on October 31 before been given a freshen-up.
Von Costa Glass returned on December 5 and with a little late support at a good price ($18-$15), put in a nice performance for second behind the very consistent Ritratto who recorded his fourth win for the campaign in that ten-furlong contest at Morphettville.
The nine-year-old was again sound in his latest attempt on Boxing Day when sustaining a long run from the rear and this Saturday at Murray Bridge, he does look better suited in this smaller field with a senior hoop now on.

Murray Bridge Each-Way Bet - Race 5 No. 6 Can'tforgetyou
Victorian trainer Andrew Noblet isn't a frequent interstate visitor, so respecting the first-up placement with this lightly raced six-year-old who had some nice form prior to her three runs last autumn, where although she was thereabouts either side of a Soft 7 flop, just didn't quite come up that campaign.
Can'tforgetyou had previously shown at the very least city class potential, with back-to-back victories at Moonee Valley in the back end of 2019, nailing a subsequent Group One winner in Bella Vella via her latest triumph, which was over the five-furlong journey she faces in this return assignment.
No knock on the favourite Sizzlefly who had to go up short by default as the next runner home after Terbium on December 19, but coming all the way down to 51kg after the Alana Kelly claim, this mare is at a double figure price and brings some fresh legs in a race that otherwise that doesn't have many angles for the punters.
