Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:31) Aramis Handicap BM66 (1000m)
#2 – Karacasu @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old gelding has yet to finish worse than second and we don’t expect that to change on Saturday.
He owns one win and three second placings from four starts, including a second placing behind Heresy in May. He hasn’t raced since then, but he should hit the ground running.
We expect the big bets to come for Karacasu.
Race 2. (13:06) G.H. Mumm Handicap BM68 (1400m)
#5 – Give Me Ten @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Give Me Ten is a three-time winner from 11 starts, and although not the most consistent, she has the form to beat this field.
The former Peter Moody-trained runner scored her wins in Victoria and dropping in grade for this race should be ideal.
She runs well fresh and we’re expecting a big effort.
Race 3. (13:41) EMR Marble & Granite BM76 (2250m)
#1 – Classy Joe @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Classy Joe is searching for three consecutive wins and despite carrying a big weight here, he has the class to overcome it.
The seven-year-old won narrowly on this track last start and he’s good enough to rise through the grades in style.
Punter get each-way odds and they’re worth taking.
Race 4. (14:21) Fresh Kitchens BM68 (1400m)
#5 – Preakness @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Preakness comes off a win at Morphettville Parks and the New Zealand-bred runner could go on with the job now.
The Michael Hickmott-trained son of Darci Brahma owns two wins from five starts and getting a 3kg claim brings him into contention.
$4.20 is worth taking as those odds should firm.
Race 5. (15:01) Spring Racing Carnival BM64 (1000m)
#6 – All In War @ $7.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Consistency is key for All In War, who has rattled off four placings from her last five starts.
The five-year-old mare runs her best races over this distance, which includes two wins and four placings. That statistic is tough to overlook, and punters should enjoy the value odds.
We wouldn’t be leaving her out of selections.
Race 6. (15:41) Terry Howe Printing BM72 (1250m)
#9 – So You Can @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
So You Can is fresh up after a solid campaign that featured two wins and two placings from seven starts.
The son of So You Think is a two-time winner at the track and unbeaten at the distance, so the stats read well, and he gets the inside draw.
Everything points towards a successful return.
Race 7. (16:21) Leon MacDonald Stakes (1400m)
#8 – Beau Rossa @ $2.05 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Beau Rossa comes off a second placing behind Group 1 winner Behemoth, so that form is some of the best going around.
He crossed the line first but caused interference to the winner and was rightfully put back to second. However, it shows his ability, and this is a much easier contest.
We’d be surprised if he didn’t win.
Race 8. (17:00) Grand Syndicates Handicap BM60 (1550m)
#3 – Celestial Illusion @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Celestial Illusion doesn’t know how to run a bad race, and although facing a harder field, he should be competitive.
The four-year-old son of Exosphere scored his only win at the distance, which bodes well and getting 3kg off his back is ideal.
$5.50 is worth the risk.
Race 9. (17:35) Nigel Latham Memorial BM82 (1000m)
#8 – Alleboom @ $8.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Alleboom is a professional four-time winner from 11 starts and he has yet to run worse than third in four attempts at Morphettville.
The son of Spirit of Boom has experience running against hot fields in Melbourne and we expect that form to stack up nicely.
We didn’t think punters would get $8.50, so take the odds.
