Horses to follow and blackbookers who caught the Blackbook.com.au team's eye at the Morphettville SA Derby Day meeting on May 8.
Race 1 - Pentire's Spirit (sixth). Was never in winning calculations in a leader dominated affair but resuming at big odds over 1200m at just start three, it was a definite pass mark for this three-year-old that should get over more ground and is still a Maiden runner. A drop back in grade second-up with a rise in trip can see him breakthrough.
Race 5 - Lady Pavli Chenko (fifth). Shared the fastest last 800m/600m of this 1200m contest with the winner before rattling off the quickest last 200m with the blinkers being applied following a freshen-up. Developing a poor strike rate but that gives her a very low rating now of just 56. The BM60 (1200m) at Murray Bridge on May 22 looks about perfect for her.
Race 9 - Toff Love (third). Best horse in the race that arguably should've won after being held-up at the top of the straight before being badly checked at the 300m. Has still recorded the fastest last 400m and 200m sectionals of the entire race and was holding his form prior to this, winning strongly at Oakbank before finishing off in a leader dominated on April 17.
