Brideoake Warming to Morphettville

The David Brideoake trained Warm Love will more than likely be scratched from the TCL Electronics Handicap at Flemington on Saturday, with the trainer preferring to send her Adelaide instead.

Warm Love produced an eye catching turn of foot in the Monash Stakes at Flemington last weekend to finish third behind Secret Flyer, however Brideoake has decided that she will be more suited to the Reliance Petroleum Stakes at Morphettville on the last day of the racing season than going around at Flemington again.

“It is a massive temptation to run her again this week at Flemington because she has pulled up so well but I think we will head to Adelaide instead,” Brideoake said.

“I would have loved to have gone to Flemington with her because she is very much proven over that course, but I reckon the Adelaide is an ideal opportunity for her.

“It gives her two weeks between runs which is not a bad way to go.”

Warm Love has now had 13 race starts and finished outside the top three on just two occasions. However in those 13 starts, she has never been extended beyond 1200m. However after her impressive performance in the Monash, Brideoake is convinced that the three year old filly well run out a strong six furlongs.

“I thought it was a great effort last Saturday. First up at 1100 meters she was always going to be a bit vulnerable so I was really happy with her run,” Brideoake said.

“She settled well and was pretty strong at the finish, and has come through it well.”

Warm Love is currently a $3.10 favourite for the TCL Electronics Handicap, however she is an unlikely starter.

The Reliance Petroleum Stakes is better known as the Dermody Stakes and is run over a distance of 1050. What makes that race unique is the fact that it features both two and three year old horses. Two year olds normally only race their own age group in Australia, however this race is the exception, because it is held on the last day of the racing season.

If Warm Love can produce her best (she finished third behind Black Caviar and Hay List in the Lightning) she should be very hard to hold out at Morphettville.
