#1 – Knightstown @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Knightstown owns two wins from five starts, including a fresh up performance at Morphettville Parks.
The three-year-old is unbeaten in two starts on this track and that bodes well coming into this race. He should dictate play off the inside draw, so knowing the track is important.

#5 – Perfect Route @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old gelding scored impressively last time out on this track, where he owns four wins from five attempts.

Jessica Eaton rides and she is in good form.
Race 3. (14:08) G.H. Mumm Maiden (1000m)
#4 – Jaazeb – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Richards/Moyle-trained gelding is getting close after notching two placings from two career starts.
He ran 1.2 lengths behind the winner on debut at Murray Bridge before going close last start, which should be a good form guide.
It’s not a strong field and he could capitalise.
Race 4. (14:43) The Junction BM76 (2250m)
#3 – Slipintothis – Bet @ Sportsbet
Slipintothis is a four-time winner from 13 starts and his record also features five placings, so he’s rarely far away from the prize.

Race 5. (15:18) Dominant BM60 (1000m)
#3 – Gaze Grise @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The David Jolly-trained four-year-old is a two-time winner from eight starts, including a fresh up start last preparation.

Most of the early money has come her way in betting markets.
Race 6. (15:58) Pike & Joyce BM86 (1250m)
#5 – Extra Time – Bet @ Sportsbet
Extra Time has improved his form nicely this preparation after scoring at Morphettville fresh up. The 1.8-length win holds him in good stead.
He followed it up with a second placing behind Lombardo, who takes on tough opposition at The Valley on Friday night. It wasn’t a close finish, but it’s still a good run.
56kg is ideal and puters should get value odds.
Race 7. (16:38) Barossa Fine Foods BM68 (1300m)
#2 – Stay Gold – Bet @ Sportsbet
Danny O’Brien lines up the talented mare who scored consecutive victories to kick off her last campaign.
The daughter of Toorak Toff finished third behind Hasstobegood at Flemington last start before heading for a lengthy spell.
She finds her best form quickly, so punters shouldn’t be put off by the lack of fitness.
Race 8. (17:18) Grand Syndicates BM72 (1000m)
#7 – Larkham – Bet @ Sportsbet
Value could be with Larkham, who has had his chances this preparation, but he’s worth another chance.

Barrier five is ideal and it’s his time to strike now.
Race 9. (17:55) Weslo Security BM68 (1400m)
#1 – Copper Fox – Bet @ Sportsbet
The former Kiwi has had mixed success in Australia, but he showed his ability when winning at Geelong three starts back.

It could pay to overlook his most recent start and stick with him.
