The five-year-old mare snared back-to-back victories — and showed she’s primed for a feature-race assault — when she finished powerfully to win a quality-laden Horsman’s Plumbing Handicap (1250m) on the Parks circuit on Saturday. “She’s a bit of an eccentric horse and I’m most probably a bit eccentric myself, so we get along well,” Clarken said. Eccentricity and all, Sudden Wealth has certainly returned to racing in peak form. Starting second favourite at $3.70, she settled in the second half of the field for regular jockey Todd Pannell as Jessica Payne set up a big early break on Victorian visitor Meridian Star ($16). Sudden Wealth worked into contention from the turn and proved a touch too strong over the final 100m to win by a half-neck. The favourite Chapel City ($2.70) continued his solid form, running on stoutly on the inside to claim second, a nose ahead of Meridian Star. High-class mare Have Another Glass ($3.80) was always a long way back and struggled to make ground on the leaders, beaten 4½ lengths in sixth. Clarken now plans to test Sudden Wealth at Listed level in next Saturday’s $100,000 City Of Marion Stakes (1200m) at Morphettville. “She’s raced well on the back-up before, so we’ll see how she goes,” the Morphettville trainer said. “She was a little bit fresh the other day ... but she took a lot from that run and she improved again today. “Hopefully if she can run to her best next week and sneak into a place, the owners will be very happy. I just wish she’d come out of the gates a bit softer and settle straight away. That could be the half-length she needs in those better races.” The $1000,000 Listed Christmas Handicap (1200m) on Boxing Day shapes as another black-type option if Sudden Wealth performs to expectations next weekend. MORPHETTVILLE RACE-BY-RACE REVIEWS RACE 1 THE WINNER: Stout effort by CRUISING, who sat outside the leader Dexter You Devil and fought plenty in the straight to score in a slugging finish. THE WATCH: The favourite TAN TAT FLAME sat third and made steady ground to be beaten in a three-way finish. Don’t give up on her. WORTH NOTING: The small field and slow tempo meant this race turned into little more than a dash up the
