The Sportsman Midweek - - Trackwork - — Greg Splet­ter

There’s a crack­ing lit­tle race at Mor­phettville on Box­ing Day and SAVATAG (R7) can re­turn to win­ning form. He kicked a goal for us first-up last month, beat­ing a sim­i­lar qual­ity field over this course and dis­tance be­fore dis­ap­point­ing a lit­tle when push­ing out to 1950m. He dropped back to 1500m here a fort­night ago and was strong through the line, and up to the mile where he is un­beaten he looks real threat.

LUCKY FLIPPER (R1 No. 3) can start us off on the right note with a win over the girls in the first. She has looked very good in three runs this cam­paign and car­ried 59kg to vic­tory at Strathal­byn last start in a Bm64. With the claim for Anna Jord­sjo she drops down 54.4kg on Wednes­day and against mod­er­ate line-up should win again.

TILDY LAD (R4 No. 1) cleaned out the pipes with a good run in be­hind Zal­mona first-up and will be im­proved for the run. He did a bit wrong although beaten a length or so by As­cen­dance that day I think back on top of the ground he can turn the ta­bles.
