Lindop won her only Adelaide Cup when she steered the Jim Smith trained Exalted Time to victory in 2006 and she is very keen to break the eleven year winning drought in front of her home crowd.

“I’m really excited. I love the thrill of these distance races,” Lindop told The Advertiser.

“This is something I always look forward to.”

Lindop has been Mail It In’s regular rider and has only missed one mount in his last nine outings when apprentice Eran Boyd took over the reins when second in an 1800m BenchMark 82 Handicap at Morphettville Parks on January 14

Lindop has had plenty of success in the past with Leon Macdonald and will team up again with the veteran trainer and his co-trainer Andrew Gluyas with Mail It In who has been around the prizemoney at his last three starts, all at Morphettville, with the premiership winning jockey in the saddle.

Three starts back Mail It In was beaten a nose when second to Letmedonegently in $50,000 Rain Lover Plate (1800m) on February 4 followed by a win in the Listed $100,000 Birthday Cup (2020m) on February 18 before being beaten a lengths last start when fourth behind Adelaide Cup rivals Master Of Arts, Puccini and Jim’s Journey.

Mail It In has been allocated 55.5kg for the Adelaide Cup, 1kg less than he carried in the Lord Reim Stakes, and will meet Master of Arts 1kg better with the Darren Weir trained stayer to carry the same weight, 56.5kg, as he carried to victory when they last met.

The Peter Blanch trainer Jim’s Journey will also drop 1kg today while Puccini is up 0.5kg and will carry 55.5kg in the Adelaide Cup.

Mail It In is currently marked at $11 for the Adelaide Cup with Ladbrokes.com.au who have Master Of Arts as the $3.80 favourite.

Master Of Arts has come in for some solid support this morning and has firmed in from $4.60 to be the clear top pick in the market order ahead of the top weight Chance To Dance at $6, Annus Mirabilis at $7.50 and De Little Engine at $8.

    I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious
    what all is needed to get setup? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would
    cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not
    100% sure. Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
