Savvy Dreams was a $14 chance when scratched at the barriers before the running of the Group 1 $500,000 Schweppes Oaks (registered as Australasian Oaks) (2000m) at Morphettville last Saturday after dislodging jockey Craig Williams behind the starting gates.

The Chris Waller trained Egg Tart continued on her winning way to take the honours in the Schweppes Oaks in a close finish over Darren Weir‘s filly Kenedna.

The Guy Lowry and Grant Cullen trained New Zealand filly was ordered by Thoroughbred Racing South Australia Stewards to pass a barrier test before being allowed to start again.

Kiwi co-trainer Guy Lowry said that Savvy Dreams was on her best behaviour on Tuesday morning when she was cleared to run after an incident free 1500m jump out in front of stewards.

“She worked over 1500m with three other horses in a jump out (on Tuesday morning), and she worked really well, she didn’t put a foot wrong,” Lowry told racing.com.

“The Schweppes Oaks and South Australian Derby were always her goals, but to miss out on the Oaks was really disappointing.

“She’s a fragile filly, particularly behind the gates, but she is absolutely fine (after flipping over on Saturday).”

Savvy Dreams is one of three fillies running in the South Australian Derby and was given the visitor’s draw with barrier nineteen in the original draw but could jump from the outside gate when the field is reduced to the final sixteen with three of the four emergencies drawing inside of her while the other one has barrier twenty beside its name.

Craig Williams looks likely to miss out on competing in another Adelaide Festival Of Racing Group 1 race with his South Australian Derby mount, the Lee and Anthony Freedman trained Adatto, being relegated to third emergency.

Savvy Dram is rated a $26 chance for the South Australian Derby at Ladbrokes.com.au who have the Mathew Ellerton and Simon Zahra trained Odeon as the $3.60 favourite ahead of Mick Price’s Netherfield at $6.50.

Early market order for the South Australian Derby at Ladbrokes.com.au: $3 60 Odeon, $6.50 Netherfield, $7.50 Ruthven, $8 Volatile Mix, $10 Rockstar Rebel, $11 Grand Chancellor, Waging War, Anaheim, $21 He Ekcels, Sedanzer, $26 Lycurgus, Savvy Dreams, $34 Dornier, Gun Guru, Adatto, $51 Wheal Leisure, Fontein Lad, Bedford, $67, Casta, Docker Pav.
