Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:26) Terry Howe Printing BM62 (1050m)
#1 – Yule My Hero – Bet Now
Yule My Hero was a quality winner last start and he could score another upset again. The two-year-old will likely run at shorter odds this time around and a market move could be telling.
The son of Kaphero stays at the same weight and although facing a competitive field, he’s worth sticking with.
Race 2. (13:01) Blaze Aid Sa BM78 (2500m)
#1 – Turf Man – Bet Now
Turf Man has had a mixed campaign this season but he did enough two starts back and that bodes well.
The five-year-old gelding won by 1.5 lengths after hitting the line with power. He didn’t follow it up at Morphettville last start but it was still a solid effort.
He just needs to turn around his form on this track to figure in the finish.
Race 3. (13:36) Tab BM86 (1600m)
#1 – Charossa – Bet Now
Charossa is warming up nicely this season and his form comes out of tough races. He finished second at Caulfield last start and that’s high-quality form for this race.
The five-year-old is a professional seven-time winner that will need to carry a big weight, but he’s the class type.
Each-way odds could be on offer from bookmakers and they’re worth taking.
Race 4. (14:11) AAMI BM60 (1600m)
#10 – Lisette – Bet Now
Lisette is backing up after scoring comfortably by two lengths last start. It was her second consecutive win and she has her confidence up now.
The daughter of Ambidexter was a consistent type last campaign and has improved significantly this time in. Both wins have been good efforts and she gets every chance from barrier three.
It’s a tough field so expect value odds.
Race 5. (14:51) Holdfast Insurance BM78 (1050m)
#6 – Non Paear @ $6 – Bet Now
It has been a while between drinks for Non Paear but she has been knocking on the door and punters are getting nice odds.
The mare is a five-time winner, so the class is there, and she went within a short margin of scoring last start.
The $6 is a good price and it could firm come race day.
Race 6. (15:31) Furphy Irwin Stakes (1100m)
#7 – Sunlight @ $2.40 – Bet Now
Sunlight is the class horse of the field and we’re surprised that she’s not the favourite. She has won over $6.2 million and yet she’s not the favourite.
It’s good news for punters that want to back the 11-time winner. Her form was a little mixed last time in work but she ran second behind Kolding last start.
It’s terrific form and she should lead and give them something to catch.
Race 7. (16:11) Winning Edge Present Redelva Stakes (1100m)
#6 – Garner @ $5.50 – Bet Now
Garner didn’t enjoy being on the rails last start and he’s much better with a drag into the race. From barrier 10, he should settle a touch wide and get a nice cart into the race.
He’s a three-year-old gelding that has yet to finish worse than third. He’s not the best horse in the field, but he gets ideal conditions.
$5.50 is a price worth taking.
Race 8. (16:51) Schweppervesence Stakes (1800m)
#6 – Snapdancer @ $5 – Bet Now
Snapdancer went close at Moonee Valley last start and that form should hold up nicely for this race. She settled on the pace and was beaten late, so the rise in distance is appealing.
It’s the three-year-old filly’s first run on this track, but she should be able to handle it. Her natural speed is an asset and 55kg helps.
Race 9. (17:30) Adelaide Festival of Racing BM78 (1200m)
#14 – Lassiter @ $3.70 – Bet Now
Lassiter is unbeaten after three starts and she could make a winning return. Drawing barrier 20 makes it tough but punters have to be impressed with her wins to date.
She’s from the Team McEvoy stable and early money has come her way despite the barrier. Take the $3.70 as it could continue to firm.
