That's becoming a bit of a familiar story for him but give him one more chance here. Same goes for MASSARUA (3), who has been drawing wide and working in fast run races of late. He's running out of opportunities to rewards his backers but is up to winning this. Same goes for BLADE OF GLORY (5), who was beaten only 5.6m by Scruffy Murphy last start. That was from a stand and he's drawn wide here but he hasn't done much wrong in the past month. MANHATTEN BRIDGE (4) hasn't won since May but is at least a place chance here, while THREE OCLOCK ROCK (7) is going super but has lucked out in the draw.

She doesn't have the best of the draw here but won from gate 10 last time and is a talented horse. BE WATCHING (5) is an obvious danger having won two of her four South Australian starts. She was a mile too good for them at Port Pirie last week but it's hard to imagine she'll turn the table on GAME HILLRAY here given she had the pole and the suck run when they last met. RAISE THE HAND (1) and AMBERLU GIRLS (2) are both going well and perfectly drawn. Both will be in the firing line throughout. RAISINA RUCKUS (8) worked early then faced the breeze when 2nd here last week and he'll be very hard to beat if he can trail in just behind the speed. BOXNDICE (10) has ability and wasn't far behind RAISINA RUCKUS in 4th last start but the draw is a concern.

He was super impressive last campaign and unfortunately has just found one better each time this prep, although he did cover ground last week. His biggest concern is the probably the draw. DEE KAYS LA FEMME (8) was restrained in the early stages recently and the result was possibly a little disappointing but he is well worth another chance especially on an each-way basis. HAVE A SWIG (10) is likely to find this a tougher proposition from this second row draw but he does loom as a definite place prospect. PADDY MOREAU (4) can improve after pulling hard and getting a flat tyre a couple of weeks back. From the pole DREAM POWER (1), who does have gate speed, might be suited by the 1800m.

He was wide early on last start before sitting outside the leader on the bell lap to just go under from a similar gate. UNLIMITED WARRANTY (6) is also in reasonable form having won and been placed in his past three starts. He led throughout two starts ago then had a good trail and boxed on well last week from the inside of the second row. He is deserving of another chance. CULLYNDAL (10) is meeting tougher company but northern winning form is sound. She does have good gate speed and will need it from this draw but can still measure up. SHES THE SHIZZEL (8) needs things to go her way in the run but if able to get a good run behind from inside the second row is capable of running into the placings. NUTHA LIGNUM (5) resumes and had good form withuot winning last prep. SELECTIONS: UNLIMITED WARRANTY (6), Cullyndal (10), Nutha Lignum (5), Shes The Shizzel (8) Q1 5 Pace 8.52 2230m. $6500.

He'll need all of his gate speed to cross them from this gate and you suspect he'll have to do some work to find the top. Having said that, it's not the hardest field he'll encounter, with CLARENDEN SERENE (8) the obvious threat from the second row. She's raced handy at her last couple after drawing the front row but might drift back here to avoid getting jammed on the pegs. She ought to be finishing hard. CARNIVAL ROSE (4) was back to something like her best last start at big odds and was only 2.2m behind SEAFIELD CULLEN. She gets the better of the draw here, although she'd need to be at her top to turn the tables. ROCK THE BOAT (3) ought to run well from the nice draw, while MEGA HAUL (1) is a must for the multiples. THE JAZZ MAN (5) is worth some place consideration after running into all kind of trouble at Whyalla last start.

MISS WINFREY (3) has gate speed and is the logical selection from her good draw. She was well beaten by Ryans Journey over this trip two weeks ago but they rated 1.57.8 and he would most likely start odds-on in this race. HEZA MAN IN BLACK (4) posted his first local win here on Monday. It was in a weaker grade but he did it tough making a three-wide move without cover on the bell lap and should be fitter for only his second run in a year. SHADOWS OF A MAN (1) and IN JET MODE (2) both have gate speed and are drawn to be in this for a long way, while INNER PEACE (5) and DOCTOR TEN CC (6) are awkwardly drawn but going OK - particularly the former. Put a line through the last run of WIDE LOAD (7) and he has to be considered for the multiples as well.

LONGTAN SAFARI (3) sat outside CONTE DE CRISTO (6) and beat him fair and square last time out. He's drawn to take up a forward position from the outset and ought to be very hard to beat. CONTE DE CRISTO has stacks of gate speed but will he be able to cross these from the outside gate? Last week's win at Port Pirie showed he's still very capable of running good times and it would be no surprise to see him bounce back to winning form. SCRUFFY MURPHY (5) won on the weekend off 30m from the stand for the first time since returning to SA last month. He has his work cut out from the draw so look for him to be driven cold and have one crack at them. If a couple get keen in front, he'll be finishing hard. DOOLAN JACK (4) is a proven performer in this grade whose form this time in is solid. It would be a suprise if he won but you wouldn't keel over with shock.

She backed up that win with a solid 2nd behind ONEAKWEER STREET (6) from the mobile last week and she is probably better from the stand. At her best, the 20m wouldn't be a problem. ONEAKWEER STREET (6) finally broke through here last week and it would be no surprise to see him go on with the job here. He's won or placed at 30 of 38 starts from the stand and has missed a place just twice in 22 starts at this track. Fair to stay he's likely to be in the finish. SUELAURIAN (1) made light of a 40m handicap to win in weaker company three starts ago. She's raced more tractably recently and is a player starting from the front. BOLD MOVER (5) has run OK at two starts since a spell and is a place contender along with WREKOGNIZE (4). STEFANJAZ (2) is also worth thought after an eye-catching effort against the pacers last start at Port Pirie over the sprint trip. His form in trotting races prior to that was only ordinary though.
