Darren Weir continued his "love affair'' with Adelaide racing this season with his first city treble at Morphettville last Saturday. He won with Maunatrice, Le Bel Away and Perian Moon taking his tally to eight wins from 13 starters there since August 1.

Last month he won at twice with Gotta Keep Cool while his other Adelaide winners have been Gunbei, Shiny And New and Bohika. The win of Maunatrice was her first for over 2 1/2 years. After winning impressively at Moonee Valley as a three-year-old in May 2008, she went to Brisbane and was favourite for the Queensland Oaks but had to be scratched due to a foot abscess. She had one more start in the Queensland Guineas but suffered a suspensory injury which sidelined her for over a year. Her career was further curtailed following a series of knee problems.

The three winners on last Saturday had to make the long way to Adelaide after severe floods in Western Victoria. They had to go via Mount Gambier, adding about 300kms to their trip before arriving safely at Mick Huxtable's stables in Murray Bridge, 80km south-east of Adelaide. Saturday's treble was the second within the week for the stable.

On Monday at Ararat, the Weir stable won the last three races of the day with Streaky Fella, Owner's Priority and Love My World who held out stable mate Jimmy Shiraz to provide the stable with a quinella.
