Pike & Joyce Handicap Tips for Morphettville on Saturday 12th December 2020
- Is this a Damascus Moment?
Pike & Joyce Handicap Tips (Race 5)
Morphettville Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 6 Damascus Moment
Although I'm very wary of the returning Westport who is the most talented galloper in this field if right, the favourite hasn't quite come up via her last few campaigns and with more in this mare's favour, she does appeal as the safer option.
The key for this daughter of Magnus is staying away from wet tracks, which she hasn't been able to avoid in her last two attempts but the trial prior to November 29 return at Warrnambool indicated she'd returned well and first-up, only peaked on her run late with 60kg on a Soft 6 and the winner completed a hat-trick in the process.
Damascus Moment is unbeaten from both second-up tilts to date and looks much better placed coming back to the 1100m where she drops four kilos off that last run and under Jason "Stubby" Holder, can lead or take the box-seat given there is some speed drawn out in this field.
