Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:22) Spring Carnival at Morphettville Handicap (1100m)
#1 – Free of Debt @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Free of Debt got back to his best form at Murray Bridge last start and the confidence could turn his career around.
The five-year-old scored by a half-length and it was his third win from 15 starts, so the talent is there, and he handles all track conditions.
$4.80 is a value price and it could firm on race day.
Race 2. (13:02) The Junction BM72 (1200m)
#2 – Extra Time @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Extra Time has been tough to follow over the years, but the four-year-old took on tough opposition last campaign.
He ran in open company at Morphettville last start and he should appreciate racing against this level of opposition.
Barrier one is ideal and the 2kg claim adds to his appeal.
Race 3. (13:37) Accolade Wines Maiden (1200m)
#2 – Castle of Kings @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Castle of Kings should have broken through for the win at his first three starts, but we’re sticking with him on Saturday.
The Will Clarken-trained son of Castledale ran second at Murray Bridge last start, which came behind Manhattan Times. It was a solid effort and suggested he won’t take long to win.
Barrier 11 isn’t ideal, but this race is there for the taking.
Race 4. (14:17) Fleurieu Milk Company BM68 (2025m)
#2 – Adonis Kick @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old scored last time out and that has proven to be a good form guide this season.
He is a son of Scissor Kick that owns two wins from 10 starts and one of those wins came at this distance.
Punters get each-way odds to enjoy and he should give them a good sight.
Race 5. (14:57) South Beef 0MW (1050m)
#3 – Silver on Red @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The David Jolly-trained five-year-old doesn’t know how to run a bad race and punters get value odds on Saturday.
He comes off a win at Balaklava by five lengths and that was a terrific effort. The son of Barbados owns two wins and four placings from seven starts, so he only needs luck to win.
Barrier 15 doesn’t help over this distance, but the class could take him a long way.
Race 6. (15:37) Furphy BM78 (1600m)
#1 – Not Usual Glorious @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The winning run of Not Usual Glorious came to an end last start when running second behind Mahis Angel at Gawler.
The former Kiwi had won four consecutive races prior to that defeat, and he won his only start at Morphettville, so that bodes well.
He loves wet track conditions, and he can handle this field.
Race 7. (16:17) Rex Brennan BM60 (1600m)
#4 – Melody Man @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Jake Stephens-trained five-year-old has yet to win from three starts this preparation, but he’s knocking on the door.
He finished second in back-to-back races at Murray Bridge before running a close fourth last time out. All three runs were encouraging, and he meets an even field on Saturday.
Barrier four is ideal and he’s drawn to get every chance.
Race 8. (16:52) Grand Syndicates BM68 (1050m)
#9 – Mutinous @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Travis Doudle-trained four-year-old is searching for three consecutive wins after scoring at Balaklava and Gawler.
He is a talented son of Rich Enuff that scored by 3.8 lengths last start, which was a credible effort and it suggests that he can rise through the grades.
3kg comes off his back and that helps.
Race 9. (17:27) Barossa Fine Foods BM60 (1200m)
#6 – Spelman @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Spelman broke through for his maiden win at Balaklava last time out and he’s capable of winning again on Saturday.
The son of Toronado showed good tactical speed and that should win him many more races throughout his career.
Value odds are available with bookmakers, so include him here.
