|Saturday, December 2, 2023
Saturday racing in South Australia heads to the Parks track at Morphettville for a 10-race meeting that kicks off at 11:47am local time. Despite there being no black-type events on the card, competitive fields are the theme of the day. With consistent rain in Adelaide throughout the week, the track is rated a Soft 7, but with a friendly forecast ahead of the meeting, the surface should be improving throughout the day. The rail is out 9m from the 1000m to the winning post and then out 6m the remainder.
Best Bet at Morphettville: Lights Of Broadway
Lights Of Broadway strung together a couple of smart victories before an average effort as favourite over 2028m on November 4. She gets a favourable setup in this 1950m affair, with Covered Call, Night Cruiser and Don’t Dismiss all looking to set the pace. The slight query is that she is yet to win in six goes on rain-affected ground, but with three placings under her belt, Lights Of Broadway should be able to run over the top of her rivals on Saturday.

Next Best at Morphettville: Anjopin
The Sue & Jason Jaensch-trained Anjopin has been impressive this campaign. He was beaten by the barest of margins at the Morphettville Parks 1400m on November 11, and now he gets his chance to go one better at the track and trip. He is proven on firmer going and wet ground, so the conditions should not be too much of an issue for the son of Danbird. If Margaret Collett can have him jump cleanly from barrier 13, he looks the logical leader and should prove hard to run down.

5yo Gelding | T: Sue & Jason Jaensch | J: Margaret Collett (a3) (63kg)
Best Value at Morphettville: Secret War
An improving track is a must for Secret War, but based on his win at Moonee Valley on November 17, the speedy galloper will take some running down in the final event of the day. The eight-year-old gelding managed to dictate terms perfectly on that night and put 1.3 lengths on arguably a tougher field than this. He will need to overcome barrier 13, but if Kayla Crowther can get him across the front of the field without spending too many tickets, Secret War will look to break his rivals’ hearts.
