Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:07) Barossa Fine Foods BM64 (1000m)
#2 – Lombardo @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old owns two wins from four starts and he’s capable of kicking off this campaign in fine style.
He scored a win at Morphettville by three lengths last start and it came in this grade, so only the rise in weight goes against him.
$1.90 is short but it’s worth taking.
Race 2. (12:42) Irish Race Day BM68 (1550m)
#8 – Jaamint @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Jaamint is shooting for three consecutive wins after scoring at Morphettville and Gawler. She is a professional winner of nine from 41 starts, so she’s used to crossing the line first.
The five-year-old daughter of Mint Lane has had a busy career and although her form on this track is only fair, she is worth backing here.
$3.50 is a fair price from bookmakers.
Race 3. (13:17) Tab BM82 (1000m)
#10 – Aadelad @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The seven-year-old comes off a win at Morphetville and we wouldn’t overlook his chances of going back-to-back.
He handled the heavy conditions well and he’s better on the soft tracks with three wins from nine attempts.
It bodes well for a good run on Saturday and carrying only 54kg brings him right into contention at each-way odds.
Race 4. (13:52) South Beef BM62 (1250m)
#1 – Harpuna @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Harpuna only has one win to his name, but he’s a consistent type that has figured in the money in six of his eight starts.
The four-year-old wasn’t far away when finishing second at Murray Bridge last start and punters should be expecting another tidy effort.
The inside draw helps and he is the testing material.
Race 5. (14:32) Oaklands Plate (1400m)
#9 – Mac ‘n’ Cheese @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The promising filly scored back-to-back second placings to start her career and she’s capable of scoring her maiden win here.
She ran second in a tough field at Sandown last start and connections must be confident to bring her to this race.
54kg helps and she hasn’t been missed in betting markets.
Race 6. (15:12) The Junction BM60 (1400m)
#1 – Lake’s Folly @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Michael Hickmott lines up the son of Pierro that comes off a sixth at Gawler, but he should find this much easier.
He has looked talented on his day and his best performances have come on rain-affected ground, so the conditions are ideal.
2kg comes off his back and most of the early money has come for Lake’s Folly.
Race 7. (15:50) Schild Estate BM72 (1950m)
#4 – Spring Break @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Spring Break is already a two-time winner this preparation and the Victorian is good enough to handle this class.
The son of Tavistock won narrowly at Casterton last time out and although rising in grade, he looks promising and he rarely runs a bad race.
Barrier two is ideal and we’re confident of a big performance.
Race 8. (16:27) Furphy BM76 (1400m)
#5 – Frankie Pinot @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
A winner of three from eight starts, Frankie Pinot should be tough to beat on Saturday. The four-year-old has finished in the money in six of his eight starts, so he’s always around the mark.
Getting a premium run from barrier three is ideal and he should be able to peel off the leaders turning for home.
$4 is a value price for a progressive type.
Race 9. (17:05) Weslo Security BM68 (1300m)
#3 – Zoist @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The McEvoy-trained three-year-old has won half of his six starts and that record is tough to overlook.
He is a well-bred son of Zoustar that is unbeaten on the track and he comes off a win at Murray Bridge by just under a length.
He’s reliable and worth backing.
