Say From SA: Murray Bridge – 1st January 2022

We begin 2022 away from the main track with the SA meeting at Murray Bridge.

Big sized fields means there should be some value for the punters.

Early in the day, Sheezabigdeel heads over from Victoria and is ready to win stepping up in ground.

The daughter of Dundeel has gradually increased in trip but over the 2500m, she won't get run off her feet and could in fact take up the running.

Setting the tempo to suit herself could well be the winning move anyway and the Cumani stable are best with these strong staying types.

Not sure what price she ends up but happy to back her here.

Another Victorian heading over for the metro opportunities is Modear for Patrick Payne and this mare is dropping way back in terms of depth.

The 5yo has been taking on Saturday grade and been right around the mark in those and even won a Flemington race back in May.

After the claim for Jacob Opperman she is well placed again and you'd expect there would be enough tempo to let her charge late as is the pattern often at Murray Bridge.

Thinking she could well tighten up late here but taking the each way odds seems safest.
