A final field of 12 sprinters are set to face off in this year’s $120,000 Group 3 David Coles AM Spring Stakes (1200m), the weight-for-age feature jumping as Morphettville Race 7 at 4:08pm (local) on Saturday.

Drawn the outside alley hasn’t stopped the bookies keeping Sweeney’s local Zariz seven-year-old Riziz safe in betting, the gelding last seen running a disappointing ninth to Miss Promiscuity in the Group 3 Sir John Monash Stakes (1100m) at Caulfield on July 4.

He returns home to a track and distance he boasts five wins from 12 previous starts over this weekend and sits top of the latest Spring Stakes odds at $4.80, jockey Jamie Mott looking to guide the defending champ to victory after Riziz won the race first-up last August.

Five other runners are under double figures to the current Spring Stakes betting markets including two $6 second picks in Richie’s Vibe and Daytona Grey drawn in barriers three and six respectively.

The Paul Beshara-trained Danerich six-year-old Richie’s Vibe ran fifth three times on the trot back during his summer – autumn season including to Chautauqua in the Group 2 Rubiton Stakes (1100m) in mid-February.

He has had four previous runs over the 1200m at Morphettville for two wins and drops from 60.5kg last time out at the track when fifth to Runway Star in the Listed Matrice Stakes (1200m) in early March, to 58.5kg this weekend.

Daytona Grey meanwhile represents Leon Macdonald & Andrew Gluyas and has barrier six with Jason Holder riding, the Artie Schiller gelding having won at Gawler in the wet two back before a fifth to Whitlam over 1100m at Morphettville on July 25.

At $7 the next two best in betting are then Happy Trails (barrier four) and Go Indy Go (barrier seven) who has last year’s winning hoop Clare Lindop in the saddle first-up.

Stablemate to Dom Tourneur’s mount Richie’s Vibe, Happy Trails is also prepared by Beshara, the Good Journey eight-year-old third to Spillway in the Group 1 Australian Cup (2000m) back in mid-March.

After that he ran 12th in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) before a last start seventh to Criterion in the Group 1 Queen Elizabeth Stakes (2000m) at Randwick on April 11.

His first-up record is only fair with one win from 10 starts but his form at the Morphettville track is very good (8-2-3-0).

Go Indy Go is the other chance in the race for Macdonald & Gluyas, and is the best fancied female galloper in the race.

A four-year-old daughter of Bernardini, the Group 1 winning mare took out Randwick’s Champagne Stakes as a $6 chance during an excellent autumn season last year and was last seen running seventh to Set Square in Melbourne’s Group 1 Crown Oaks (2500m) last November.

Rounding out the single figure fancies is the Richard Jolly-trained last start Moonee Valley winner Alcohol ($8), the Bianconi seven-year-old having saluted over the mile in Melbourne on June 20.
