Morphettville stages a good card today, highlighted by the Group 2 Adelaide Cup (AR7). That is not the only good race on the card however, with the Listed Cinderella Stakes (AR4)Listed CS Hayes Stakes (AR6) and Group 2 Euclase Stakes (AR8) also on the program. 

Adelaide Cup (AR7) – Former Luca Cumani galloper Drunken Sailor gets his chance to win this race despite being burdened with 59.5kg and having to jump from the widest gate. He has been impressive at his three starts in this campaign, winning impressively under 60kg over 2600m last time out. Hanks is likely to be the biggest danger, having excelled over staying trips this time in. He has won his last two starts and represents the powerful Moody/Nolen combination. Norsqui deserves respect after beating the top pick in the Mornington Cup last week and winning during the Melbourne Cup carnival, while Rialya and Enchanting Waters are the best of the locals.
Selections: Drunken Sailor, Hanks, Rialya, Norsqui
