Weir Raider Has Bookies Snookered In Adelaide

Friday, 10th August 2018

The contempt with which Darren Weir’s runners cut a swathe through much of Australia’s East coast last season has bagmen looking for shelter in the second on Morphettville’s 8-race card tomorrow. Albeit the curiously named Red Choux’s is stepping up to a benchmark 84 after winning a BM 82 and BM 70 at Morphettville and Sandown, respectively, that's offset by a handy drop in the weights. Without wishing to denigrate his opposition in the 1550m event, it kind of tells a story when his closest rival in the market, By The Grace, was sent off in his past three starts at $101, $151 and $100. The $1.65 offered at the time of writing looks like stealing money even if the ominous Adelaide weather forecast messes with the best laid plans of mice and men.
