The Darren Weir-trained Platelet is a $5.50 favourite at Sportingbet for Saturday’s Sportingbet Classic at Morphettville after drawing favourably in barrier 5 for the Group 1 over 1200m.


Platelet is favourite at in front of Shamal Wind ($6), Villa Verde ($6.50), Gregers ($7) and Politeness ($7.50).

“It’s an incredibly talented field with a number of legitimate chances and it will be interesting to see which one of them the punters come for,”’s Andrew Brown said.

“Platelet looks to be going as well as she was before she won last year but you have to respect the recent group 1 form of Gregers and Villa Verde.”

In the Schweppes Australasian Oaks, Girl In Flight is a slight $4 favourite at ahead of May’s Dream at $4.20 with Scratchy Bottom a $6 third favourite. Classic (Robert Sangster)
