Mornington - Race 1 12.35pm AEDT
Matty showed plenty of talent as a younger horse and he returned from a lengthy stint in the spelling paddock with a second place finish behind Sprightly Lass at The Valley. There is no horse with the quality of Sprightly Lass in this field and Matty should be able to return to winning form.
Mornington - Race 4 2.25pm AEDT
Freehearted had excuses when she was beaten at The Valley last start and before that she won at Ladbrokes Park in very impressive fashion. She does have a turn-of-foot and it shouldn’t be a huge issue that she will get a long way back from the wide barrier draw as she still has the class to finish over the top of her rivals.
Mornington - Race 6 3.45pm AEDT
This is an open edition of the Ladbrokes Hareeba Stakes and Stellar Collision does appeal at his current price of $6. He has been in very consistent form so far this preparation and he was only narrowly denied last start in the Maurice Stakes. He maps to get a lovely run just behind the speed and will be in the finish.
Mornington - Race 8 5:10pm AEDT
I am very surprised that there is such juicy odds available for Peruggia to win the Mornington Guineas and it would not surprise if he was very well-backed over the next 24 hours. He has shown plenty of toughness to record back-to-back wins at The Valley and he is a horse that makes his own luck right on the speed.
