Form analyst, SCOTT MCDONELL, previews Saturday’s Mornington meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 9 races. Good luck, punters!

Track Condition: Good 4

Rail Position: True entire circuit

I think BRAZEN SONG looks really nice each way odds in this. She found the class in Group 3 company a little too hot last start but back in this class looks ideal.

LA ROCQUE is another coming back in class after taking on the G3 Typhoon Tracy last start. She will roll forward and on her home track looks tough to beat.

CIRRINA only just missed at The Valley first-up. She will be much better from that outing and already a winner this track/distance.


YAKI ISHI made good late ground in maiden on debut then thrown in deep end when went to Sires Produce and ran a cracking race when placed. He should be too good for these.

DO IT LA is another that comes out of the Sires’ Produce when beaten less than 2 lengths. Drawn to get the perfect run in transit and no reason she will not be in the mix.

SKYPHIOS is the big query making his debut on home track. Bred to be better when he gets over further than this but may run a cheeky race on debut.


FOREVER FREE has a super first-up record (3:2-0-1). Drawn to get the perfect run in transit and she looks nice each way value in this.

DESTINATION resumes from spell. He is another that has won a couple fresh from a spell. Two trials will have him ready for this and cannot leave out.

MIDWEST just keeps winning. Won all five straight this time in and no reason she will not add to that picket fence on his home track.

LUNAR HERO just wanted to overrace at Echuca last start and did not finish the race off well enough. Previous form had been strong for this and would not dismiss.


JUMP THE BROOM is an unbeaten mare from the Hawkes stable. She was dominant at The Valley two starts back then went to Sydney and relished the heavy. Hard to leave her out.

TYPHOON HARMONY resumes from spell. He is yet to miss a place in two first-up tries and he is juicy each way odds for supporters.

GINGER JONES has just battled in his three runs back from spell but he will make his own luck rolling forward and can sneak a place in this.


WYCLIF won with something in hand at Morphettville two starts back then he went to Caulfield and was well backed but did not finish race off. He can bounce back in this.

ROUSSEAU was dominant at The Valley three starts back. Relished the heavy track and won at Rosehill last start and he can win again.

DIVINE DIOSA looks ready to win coming off two sound minor placings. Drawn touch wide but can sneak into a minor spot again.


CRYSTAL PEGASUS has been dominant winning his last three starts. Gave them a galloping lesson when let down at Flemington last start and he can win again.

PONDUS found return to form with an easy win at Flemington last start. Now he has returned to winners stall he may go on and win again.

SACRAMENTO looked the likely pace maker. If they leave him alone he will make it into a true staying test and may steal this from the 600m.

DEFIBRILLATE was impressive winning the Prelude first-up at Caulfield then he was doing his best work final stages at Flemington last start. Will sit back but watch for him late.


Going to have something each way on LA MEXICANA. She is yet to miss a place first-up (4:2-1-1) and although awkwardly drawn certainly has the ability to get away with this.

SUPERIUM has been threatening to win a race like this. Placed at Flemington two starts back then went to The Valley and was beaten less than 2 lengths. He looks well placed.

SANSOM is a little bulldog. Brave at Morphettville first-up when only tired late. Has wide gate to contend with but expect he will look winner at some stage in straight.

THE ASTROLOGIST has been racing competitively in Group 1 company of late. Outstanding placing in the Newmarket last start and from ideal barrier he can win this.


ANCIENT GIRL controlled the race from the front and dashed away to win as she liked at Morphettville last start. She is smart and can go on with it here.

JUNGLE MAGNATE resumes from spell. Placed in Group 2 company before battling in the Victoria Derby before break. Will be better when gets over further but can run cheeky race fresh.

DAILY BUGLE was just getting warm when race was all over at Flemington first-up from a break. Sure to strip fitter and expect he will be an improver.


SAVANNAH CLOUD is such an honest gelding. He chased home the smart Yonce and in-form Gentleman Roy at Flemington last start. This looks right race for him.

BASARWA won two straight then he finished just in behind Savannah Cloud at Flemington last start. Only needs to hold that form and will be right in the mix.

TROSETTEE is the big query making his Australian debut for Patrick Payne stable. Won his last four starts before crossing the Tasman and if any money about must consider.
