Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:01) Leconfield BM72 (1200m)
#1 – Designer Chef – Bet @ Sportsbet
Designer Chef has been in good form in Victoria and that typically stacks up nicely in Adelaide.
The five-year-old gelding scored a win at Pakenham two back before running second behind Paperboy last start.
Punters get each-way odds to enjoy and he could start the first race in style.
Race 2. (13:36) Furphy Maiden Plate (1050m)
#8 – Zoushine – Bet @ Sportsbet
Zoushine isn’t the most consistent runner going around but she will enjoy significantly dropping in class.
The McEvoy-trained filly raced against the likes of Written Beauty and Marboosha at Flemington last start. She has yet to win a race, so dropping to maiden grades is ideal.
Carrying 55.5kg is ideal and she has every chance to break her duck.
Race 3. (14:11) Tab BM58 (1050m)
#1 – Exalted Zoe – Bet @ Sportsbet
The winning run of Exalted Zoe came to an end at Morphettville last start, but not everything went her way.
She tried to find the front but runners kicked up inside her, so drawing the inside barrier is ideal in this situation.
2kg comes off her back and she could get back to her best form.
Race 4. (14:46) Peter Elberg Funerals BM58 (1528m)
#4 – Noname Lane @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Noname Lane is getting close to a win after notching three placings this season. The four-year-old gelding was only a half-length behind the winner last start, so it was a solid effort.
He has been specked in betting markets throughout the week and that confidence is a good sign for punters.
The $5.50 is worth taking in an even race.
Race 5. (15:26) Happy 18th Hank BM64 (1200m)
#3 – Harpuna @ $2.45 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Harpuna looks ready to win after posting back-to-back second placings this preparation, including one at Moonee Valley.
The Peter Hardacre-trained gelding has missed the money in only one of his five starts and there’s plenty to like about that record.
It comes as no surprise to see money coming for it.
Race 6. (16:06) Twilight Races At Morphettville BM68 (1100m)
#1 – Taken Off @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Taken Off has made a positive start to his career after posting three wins from five starts. He scored at Morphettville last start before spelling.
He hasn’t raced in three months, but the four-year-old is stronger now and he has been heavily backed to make a winning resumption.
Drawing barrier three is ideal and we’re confident.
Race 7. (16:46) Adelaide Galvanising BM76 (2034m)
#4 – Ritratto @ $1.95 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ritratto is a winner of three of his last four starts and he can keep that winning form going this Saturday.
The son of Fiorente defeated only a three-horse field last start, but he put 3.3 lengths on the field to score with ease.
He knows how to control the pace up front and this field doesn’t hold many fears.
Race 8. (17:26) Terry Howe Printing BM82 (1050m)
#2 – Li’l Kontra @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The little mare got back to winning form with a win at Morphettville last start and it was a gutsy effort.
She looked beaten at the 200m mark, but she hit top gear late to score in a crowded finish over Port Vale.
She has to beat a similar field here and the run of Port Vale was probably a fraction better, but she holds the class edge and the inside draw is ideal.
Race 9. (18:06) Dominant BM68 (1600m)
#9 – Zoulah @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Zoulah scored two wins last preparation and although poor towards the end of the season, she has been given time to mature.
The McEvoy-trained mare is a two-time winner at this distance and she didn’t handle being in open grade, so dropping to BM68 grade is ideal.
Punters get each-way odds and they’re worth taking.
