Penola Tips September 8

L & S Fencing Contractors Maiden Plate Tips (Race 3)

Penola Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 2 Dale's Rocket

Knocking on the door via three runs in his first racing preparation, this gelding showed no signs of going backwards on return at Naracoorte, catching the eye with a slashing run from just off the speed to grab second over the 1000m.

Forced to retreat at a key stage which cost him three lengths and arguably the win. Dale's Rocket wasn't suited by the early tempo of that five-furlong affair, as he couldn't settle and then balance up, so the step up to 1300m looks ideal, especially from gate two.

Ammor Amor is the favourite and brings the slightly stronger form lines overall, but he has drawn out in gate 10 which is a knock on this turning circuit and now four runs into his campaign, has certainly has chances whereas this five-year-old is still building.

The Midfield Group Benchmark 54 Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Penola Value Bet - Race 5 No. 9 Red Roof

Although beaten over three lengths, there was good money for this four-year-old on resumption at Murray Bridge ($14.00 - $9.00) where over the 1400m, she made late inroads for second behind American Trouble, who is challenging for favouritism here.

There's a 4kg weight swing in Red Roof's favour from that August 25 affair, as still a Maiden runner, albeit it's still only a Benchmark 54 and some of the more fancied runners in the market are either Maiden runners themselves or have poor overall strike rates.

On the seven-day turnaround over 1500m at Gawler last Wednesday where she was fair in a midfield finish, there really was no intent on that occasion, but now getting to 1700m and backing up for the third week in a row, I would expect them to be more positive now.

Adrian Thomas Industrial Benchmark 68 Handicap Tips (Race 6)

Penola Best Bet - Race 6 No. 5 Thrill Kill

On their day, some of the runners accepted for the penultimate at Penola on Wednesday are genuine city class gallopers in Adelaide, so despite the moderate 21k purse and somewhat modest Benchmark 68 grade level, this is far from being a field of walkers.

One of the more progressive runners is the Peter Hardacre-trained Thrill Kill, a four-year-old that could well be back in town soon enough, having won his Maiden over the 1200m at Morphettville on Boxing Day, a much better victory than what the margin suggests.

Going hard from the start along with a rival who was beaten seven lengths, he was entitled to be run down, while following that with a 64 win in Victoria and recording two Adelaide placings along with a third over the Bool' carnival, this gelding clearly has some ability.

Dale's Rocket is a leading chance in Race 3 and in Race 5, Red Roof makes some each-way appeal at a big price.
