EYE Of The World couldcause an upset at double figure odds and win the $50,000 Port Lincoln Cup at Ravendale Racecourse on Friday.
PREPARED: Going for a dip before the cup was Ronnie Bell on Hard At It, Tyson Bird-Balek on Spalding Cove and Darryl Carrison on Rooboy.
The Brian Lear-trained seven-year-old has done everything right here in his three runs since transferring from the Hayes-Dabernig stable.
Weighted well he gets the favours from the inside gate (unlike recent starts) with the expected early speed battle of Ustinov’s Fury and Rooboy.
On an each-way basis he is the top selection.
Ustinov’s Fury and Rooboy are both out and out leaders and expect fireworks early.
Montalto has found her true form as she gets up in trip.
Atruly run race will see her strong late and Hard At It is a must include on his prelude run.
Tips: Eye Of The World 1, Ustinov’s Fury 2, Montalto 3, Hard At It 4.
Race 1 -Maiden 1210m
Punters can get the money early with Phantom Date the best bet on the card.
The Mick White-trained four-year-old was terrific on debut when he chased hard, just failed to pick up Washerwoman.
The wide barrier is a slight concern but this one is smart and can do work in the run and still win.
The Darryl Carrison pair Insky and Halls Bay finished alongside Phantom Date in that same maiden and must be respected.
Tips: Phantom Date 1*, Halls Bay 2, Insky 3.
Race 2 – Benchmark 56 1390m
Letsava Win looks ideally placed for the Will Clarken stable.
The son of Savabeel closed off nicely when fresh at Morphetville and will prove too good to this lot.
Casino Exit and Sandhill Jett are place chances.
Tips: Letsava Win 1, Sandhill Jett 2, Casino Exit 3.
Race 3–Benchmark 56 1390m
Tough race so it might be good time to visit the buffet. Heza Gunn has raced well this season and can measure up against these limited older horses.
Look for Tassie to be ridden forward and give a sight.
Tips: Heza Gunn 1, Tassie 2, More Than Most 3.
Race 4 – Benchmark 64 1750m
Artful Diva could have been competative in the Port Lincoln Cup so she goes in as top pick in this. There looks enough early tempo for her to unwind late.
Joseph Arnold hardest to beat with Savanero next best.
Tips: Artful Diva 1, Joseph Arnold 2, Savanero 3.
Race 5 – Benchmark 64 1390m
Point Drummond can mix his form but going on his dominant last start win you have to include him in the main chances, especially if the rail is the place to be.
Heza Hussler, Divadebeer and Copper Coast Raider are racing well locally.
Wind Spirit and Bel Streak (threefrom threeat this track) are also winning chances in a high quality benchmark 64 event.
Tips: Point Drummond 1, Heza Hussler 2, Wind Spirit 3.
Race 6 – Benchmark 64 1000m
Tintagel Rocker has 62 kilograms to contend with but if he ends up in the one-one position in the run you would haveto give him a chance to bring up the hat-trick.
Nippy Lippy and Heavens Flight are consistent local performers while Geordie’s Second and Bold Senator could be blowouts if the track is racing favourably and they can pinch a break on the home turn.
Tips: Tintagel Rocker 1, Bold Senator 2, Nippy Lippy 3.
Race 7 – Flying 1210m
Debeersonus returns to his home track and won’t know himself with only 54kg on his back.The Simon Drewitt-trained seven-year-old has only missed a place once in 17 starts at this track. Each-way all day.
Hank’s Nephew, Killawarra, Propshaft and Black Barra draw the inside four gates. Who gets the luck will decide their fate.
Tips: Debeersonus 1, Killawarra 2, Propshaft 3.
Race 9 – Benchmark 60 1210m
The get-out stakes, the final race of the Port Lincoln season, sees exciting three-year-old Galaxy Falls return after a freshen up. He will have to be at his best giving the older horses weight.
Looking for value to get out of trouble or pay for dinner at the pub leads us to Rocky Valley.
