Chooks Little Tours Benchmark 54 Handicap Tips (Race 5)
Strathalbyn Best Bet - Race 5 No. 5 Hilumiere
While she doesn't exactly win out of turn, this mare isn't exactly the easiest runner to place and via the fifth from Strathalbyn on Wednesday, it looks the perfect chance to record win number six.
A locally trained runner that has a good second-up record, Hilumiere was hard to miss first-up on May 29, an event where she was tardy away before storming home late for second behind Carbone.
She brought up a victory only last spring here on a Soft 7 over Li'l Hank and Stryke In Style, two gallopers that are rated well above anything in this field with her biggest threat here being Grafton Avenue, who is set for start six in just his first racing preapration.

Strathalbyn Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 8 A Knight In Paris
This five-year-old has been building quite well over his last few performances and down in grade while up in trip on the seven-day back-up, he's found a very winnable assignment here.
A Knight In Paris has placed multiple times over prior campaigns at Metroplitan level via much tougher Benchmarks than he faces on Wednesday, but the low rating due to two career wins sees him quite well in for a race of this nature.
Catching the eye last week with a third behind the in-form Crypto Currency and Don't Dismiss when he was specked at a long price, this is clearly easier while from two attempts over the 2050m at Strathalbyn, he has a win and a second to his name.

Strathablyn Value Bet - Race 8 No. 3 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 1600m, 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) in his one attempt at this circuit, but did find the 1100m too sharp before defeating Mug's Game over 1500m, a mare that bolted in on May 16 when breaking through.
