Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:41) M&J Chickens Breeders’ Stakes (1200m)
#6 – Charm School – Bet Now
Charm School made a big impression when winning on debut at Sandown. The Anthony Freedman-trained filly hit the line nicely to score and she looks a nice type on the rise.
She’s by Redoute’s Choice, so any rise in distance is welcomed and although facing a tough ask second-up, she’s capable of handling the pressure.
Race 2. (13:16) Anzac Day BM64 (1000m)
#4 – Fortune Follows – Bet Now
Fortune Follows scored a win on debut at Morphettville before running 1.8 lengths behind the winner second-up.
He was quickly spelled following that defeat and he should be able to come back in fine order. He’s trained by Will Clarken and he usually gets his youngsters ready for race day.
Drawing barrier five helps and he should be right around the mark.
Race 3. (13:51) M&B Stewart’s 62nd Anniversary BM60 (1250m)
#8 – Seven Letters – Bet Now
Seven Letters didn’t show too much from his first three starts but he turned that all around when scoring at Murray Bridge.
The three-year-old won by over a length after settling on the speed and another tidy effort looms this Saturday.
Punters should get value odds and he could run well again with some luck.
Race 4. (14:26) Peggy McKinnon’s 100th BM78 (1300m)
#4 – Sky Punch – Bet Now
Sky Punch is looking to go back-to-back after scoring impressively last start. The five-year-old scored his fourth win from 20 starts and he’s rarely far away from the prize.
His best form comes on this track with four starts for a win and two placings. It bodes well for a big run here and drawing barrier three should see him settle on the speed again.
Race 5. (15:01) H C Nitschke Stakes (1400m)
#8 – Night Express @ $3.60 – Bet Now
The Henry Dwyer-trained Victorian scored with ease when winning at Morphettville last start and she could go back-to-back.
She scored by four lengths after leading throughout and it was an encouraging performance. Her form in Victoria was fair leading into that race and she has seemingly found her grade.
She gets barrier one and a light weight on her back.
Race 6. (15:36) TAB BM78 (1000m)
#9 – Seemingly Discreet – Bet Now
Form is with Seemingly Discreet, which has rattled off three consecutive wins. The three-year-old filly is in a winning mood and she could handle the rise in class.
Trained by Phillip Stokes, the daughter of Sepoy hit the line with power last start and she has many more wins to come.
Expect bookmakers to have her firm in the betting.
Race 7. (16:11) Festival of Racing BM68 (1400m)
#5 – Jacobite Prince – Bet Now
Jacobite Prince owns three wins from five starts and he scored by 1.5 lengths on this track last time out.
It was a good performance from the son of Choisir and he’s more than capable of winning again. The rise back up to benchmark 68 shouldn’t worry him and he’s more mature now.
It’s a harder field but he runs well at each-way odds.
Race 8. (16:46) Holdfast City of Adelaide Stakes (1400m)
#3 – Waging War @ $4.80 – Bet Now
Waging War can find it tough to win races but he is a seven-time winner that has been facing some quality fields.
The six-year-old owns form behind the likes of Fierce Impact, Dalasan, and Widgee Turf to name a few. It’s not an easy field he faces here but we wouldn’t be ruling him out.
Early money has come his way.
Race 9. (17:25) Furphy Chairman’s Stakes (2035m)
#2 – Dalasan @ $1.85 – Bet Now
Dalasan was always going to be too good for that field last start. He faces a much harder task here but he owns six wins from 13 starts and he’s all class.
Despite facing a harder field, Warning appears to be his only serious challenger. He should enjoy getting out to this distance and although punters have to take short odds, bookmakers have him well-placed in the market.
