Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:47) Twilight Races BM62 (1250m)
#3 – Totally Discreet @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Totally Discreet is searching for another win after scoring impressively on this track last start.
The Phillip Stokes-trained filly won by a length to break maiden grades, which followed two second placings.
She’s a progressive type who should use the inside draw to her advantage.
Race 2. (13:22) Furphy BM78 (1950m)
#2 – Noname Lane @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Noname Lane has finished in the money in 11 of his 13 starts, so we can’t leave him out of calculations.
The five-year-old son of Shamus Award scored a win at this track last start and we like his chances of going back-to-back.
Getting a 3kg claim adds to our confidence levels.
Race 3. (13:57) The Junction BM72 (1250m)
#7 – Addictions @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Addictions owns four wins from her last five starts and that form is tough to overlook.
The five-year-old mare has two wins from three starts on the track, and despite facing a tough field here, she can measure up.
Getting the inside draw is ideal, so take the $4.
Race 4. (14:32) Boxing Day Races Maiden (1300m)
#13 – Lights of Broadway @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lights of Broadway did enough to impress when running fourth on debut and she could improve.
The three-year-old daughter of Rebel Raider will improve over longer distances, so the rise to 1300m is ideal.
She’s from a good stable and there has been solid betting support.
Race 5. (15:12) Wills & Daniel BM64 (1550m)
#1 – Lake’s Folly @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Michael Hickmott lines up the five-year-old gelding who prefers rain around, but we’re sticking with him.
He owns four wins and 10 placings from 27 starts, so he’s rarely too far away from the prize. Running in this class should result in a win shortly and 3kg comes off his back.
$4.60 is a fair price from bookmakers.
Race 6. (15:52) The Phoenix BM60 (1250m)
#7 – Grey Whisper @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Grey Whisper returned this season with a win at Wangaratta and we like her chances of winning again.
The four-year-old scored by 1.8 lengths to break her maiden status and she showed a good turn-of-foot to run them down.
The inside draw is ideal and she has good upside.
Race 7. (16:32) Grand Syndicates BM82 (1000m)
#3 – Alleboom @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
We’re surprised Alleboom isn’t shorter in the betting after showing excellent consistency throughout her career.
The four-year-old son of Spirit of Boom owns six wins and seven placings from 16 starts, which is a record that can’t be overlooked.
Getting a 3kg claimer in the saddle helps, so put on top.
Race 8. (17:12) Leconfield BM68 (1400m)
#10 – Around the Horn @ $7.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Around the Horn could score a home run on Saturday. The four-year-old returned from a long break with a fifth at Bendigo, which was a nice effort.
He won on debut at Murray Bridge in 2020 before going over a year without a run. With that run under his belt, he should be improved.
We’ll take the generous odds on offer.
Race 9. (17:52) Peter Elberg Funerals BM60 (1000m)
#9 – Squizzy Mizzy @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Squizzy Mizzy scored a fresh up win on the track and she could get back to her best form.
The four-year-old daughter of Squamosa got back to this track last start when running third behind Larkham, which is solid form.
Most of the early betting support has come for the favourite.
