A final field of 12 gallopers are set to face off in Morphettville Race 8 at 4:35pm (SA time) on Saturday, the $115,000 Group 3 DC McKay Stakes (1100m) closing the card.

Sitting top of the DC McKay Stakes odds at Ladbrokes.com.au currently is four-year-old Henrythenavigator gelding Yesterday’s Songs paying $3.80 to score back-to-back wins.

Last time out the Melbournite won over 1100m at Geelong in a Benchmark 70 by an easy two and three-quarter lengths, Saturday a step up in class on that for the consistent sprinter who has won three of his six starts to date.

He did it from out wide in gate 12 of 12 in that April 8 run and should get an easier go from the inside alley when he has his first run at the track.

Three other runners are also at single-figures to take out the DC McKay Stakes, which is a traditional lead-up for the $500,000 Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) back at Morphettville on May 16.

Occupying the second line of betting for Saturday’s clash at $4.80 is the widely-drawn Thermal Current who is still popular with the punters despite a barrier 11 draw for the Peter Moody-trained four-year-old to overcome.

The Exceed And Excel gelding hasn’t won a race since a Group 3 at Moonee Valley back in October of 2013, but was only defeated three-quarters of a length when second behind Politeness, who runs in the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes on Saturday, in the Listed Bel Esprit Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield on April 18.

The next best fancied are then Streetcar Isabelle ($5.50) and Minaj ($6.50) drawn in barriers six and 12 respectively.

Jason Holder stays on the David Jolly-trained Danerich mare Streetcar Isabelle who comes off back-to-back autumn wins around South Australia with the same hoop in the saddle.

Two back in February the four-year-old won over 1100m at Gawler before her last start victory over Riziz in the Listed Oakbank Stakes (1100m) on April 4.

Minaj meanwhile is in the outside draw for her hoop Ben Melham, the Lee & Anthony Freedman-trained Commands four-year-old coming off a second to Miss Promiscuity over the same distance at Caulfield on April 18.

Saturday is her third run at Morphettville, a track she won the Listed Redelva Stakes (1050m) at defeating Blue Diamond Stakes winner Miracles Of Life last April.

The mare also ran in last year’s DC McKay Stakes but could only manage to finish four lengths away fifth behind Essay Raider, a run she’s out to improve on 12 months later.

The best of the double-figure hopes lining up in the last include Jolly’s other runner Spirits Dance ($12) drawn a treat in gate two for jockey Craig Williams, Manihi Stakes runner-up at the track two back Vatican ($12), Leon Macdonald & Andrew Gluyas’s last start Group 3 RN Irwin Stakes winner Daytona Grey ($15), the Team Hawkes-trained Agent ($15) and last year’s runner-up Karacatis ($17).
