Third time lucky?

Cape South will be hoping its third time lucky for her in Adelaide on Saturday when she lines up in the Team Solutions Training Handicap (2250m).

The mare has raced twice in the City of Churches during her career without winning.

“She didn’t have much luck at Morphettville last start as she was held up at a crucial stage," Danny O’Brien’s assistant trainer Gerard Tesoriero said of her 5th placing on June 19.

"Her first run at Morphettville was in the Group 3 SA Oaks in April 2008 and she found that class and distance (2500m) a bit too much for her at that stage of her career,” he said.

Cape South is having her fifth start this preparation on Saturday and so far she has been thwarted by wet tracks this campaign.

“The surfaces at Morphettville of late have been much better than any in Victoria and she is going very well, so we have taken her across to give her another chance at winning a metropolitan race,” Tesoriero said of the city-winning mare.

Leading jockey Paul Gatt, who is just three wins behind in the SA metropolitan premiership, will ride the five-year-old.
