There are 11 hopefuls left in the field for this year’s $115,000 Group 3 Seven News DC McKay Stakes (1100m) following the early scratching of the Doug Harrison-trained Tudor (9).

Leading the latest DC McKay Stakes betting odds at Ladbrokes.com.au is the rails-drawn Yesterday’s Songs in from $3.80 to $3.70 to post back-to-back wins this time in.

Michael Moroney’s four-year-old won over this distance at Geelong at the start of April, and three weeks on he’ll make his black-type debut in the DC McKay looking to salute from the punters as he enjoys a drop back from 60.5kg to the 55kg minimum on Saturday.

The biggest dangers according to the bookies are then Dwayne Dunn’s mount Thermal Current ($5), the in-form Streetcar Isabelle ($5.50) after her third straight win and the market mover Minaj ($6.50 into $6).

So will one of the single-figure hopes salute or is there value to be found in an upset from the likes of last start RN Irwin Stakes winner Daytona Grey ($16) or the Richard Jolly-trained Karacatis ($18) who was runner-up to Essay Raider in this race 12 months ago?


#5 Thermal Current ($5)

Plenty of boxes ticked by Peter Moody’s Melbourne raider here who is one of the fastest out the gates and setting the speed in this. Will be second-up on Saturday after the Exceed And Excel four-year-old returned on April 18 with a nice second, beaten less than a length, by Politeness in the Listed Bel Esprit Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield. Second-up his record is solid and the distance suits, so expecting improvement and another good run at Morphettville where he ran second in black-type company at just his third start back in 2013.


#1 Karacatis ($18)

Good price on offer for the likely improver of the pack, Jolly’s Hussonet six-year-old looking to improve on the first-up RN Irwin Stakes fifth. His record at the track is excellent (16-4-5-3), the distance is his pet (10-4-3-0) and from nine starts over the 1100m at Morphettville he’s won four and run second three times. Second-up record is solid (5-1-2-1) and really think he’ll be ready to fire at a juicy offering in the markets.


#6 Streetcar Isabelle ($5.50)

Coming off back-to-back wins, David Jolly’s mare is in top form and won in black-type company at Oakbank last time out. She’s been freshened-up since and is ready to shoot for her third win from as many starts over this distance. The Goolwa-based daughter of Danerich hasn’t raced at the course proper before but has experience at Morphettville Parks and after her all-the-way effort last start, can’t leave her out.
