Timeform Aus SmartPlays: Morphettville, Saturday April 28

Strong fancy We're Gonna Rock

Timeform's Australian team bring you their three best bets for Saturday's action at Morphettville...

"The McKay Stakes brings the curtain down on what is essentially ‘Black Caviar Day’ in Adelaide with We’re Gonna Rock (08:00) poised to send punters home in good spirits.

Dubawi mare Zubbaya runs in the 05:25 (BST) at Morphettville with a genuine favourite's chance having run well in each of her three runs this campaign and with the Freedman stable in such good form of late, she looks well placed to keep the ball rolling.

Empress Rock is the current favourite for the Schweppes Oaks due off at 06:05 despite weakening for fifth last start in the Schweppervescence behind a number of rivals she faces again on Saturday. The Bart Cummings-trained filly meets her opposition better at the weights however there must be queries over the daughter of Fastnet Rock's stamina after her latest performance over 1800m. She comes from a sprinting family which includes the likes of Silent Witness and Sister Madly so laying Empress Rock at her current quote might be a worthwhile option.

The McKay Stakes brings the curtain down on what is essentially 'Black Caviar Day' in Adelaide with We're Gonna Rock (08:00) poised to send punters home in good spirits. He's always had plenty of talent and it seems the ultimate gear change, gelded prior to this campaign, has his mind on matters on the racecourse. He beat many of those reopposing with something to spare last start and now meets his main opposition better at the weights. He should prove too smart again.
