Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:17) Wills and Daniel Maiden (1100m)
#3 – Keep Reading @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Keep Reading comes off a second placing on debut at Gawler and it came behind Taunting, which has since looked impressive.
The Jolly-trained son of Headwater looked good at the trials prior to that run and he gets every chance off an inside draw on Saturday.
We’re not surprised by the odds available so include.
Race 2. (12:52) Dominant BM78 (1600m)
#8 – The Dec @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old gelding already owns two wins from four starts and he battled gamely to score by a nose at Geelong last start.
Victorian form lines up nicely in this company and the son of Kermadec only has to carry 54kg, so he should be tough to beat.
The $3.40 could firm on race day, so take the odds available.
Race 3. (13:27) Furphy BM78 (2500m)
#3 – Mahis Angel @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mahis Angel returned to form when scoring two weeks ago and that should give him confidence going forward.
The Travis Doudle-trained five-year-old won by 5.3 lengths at Gawler and his class was on his display. He enjoyed the rise in distance and stepping up to 2500m shouldn’t hold any fears.
$3.60 is a fair price and we’re expecting another tidy run.
Race 4. (14:02) Tab BM86 (1200m)
#5 – Pindaric @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Pindaric has yet to do anything wrong from five starts and he could remain unbeaten once again on Saturday.
The four-year-old son of Fastnet Rock had to fight for the victory last start and it came after sitting three wide, so it was a tough effort.
He is a risk here but punters get odds worth taking.
Race 5. (14:37) GH Mumm BM60 (1050m)
#13 – Honey Go Lightly @ $9.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Honey Go Lightly owns only one win from 16 starts, but the four-year-old mare comes off a second placing at Murray Bridge and that looms large.
The daughter of Wandjina scored the win on this track and she could get back to that level of form on Saturday.
Punters get odds worth taking and she won’t have to do much work off an inside barrier.
Race 6. (15:17) Fleurieu Milk Company BM62 (1050m)
#5 – Heroic Chief @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Heroic Chief is a three-year-old gelding that finished second on debut at Werribee before running third at Kyneton.
The son of Rubick was only a length behind the winner last start and it’s only a matter of time before he gets off the mark.
His opening odds of $6.50 have been taken and we’re not surprised.
Race 7. (15:57) The Junction BM60 (1200m)
#3 – Preakness @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Preakness is a former New Zealand runner that could have immediate success in Australia.
The Michael Hickmott-trained three-year-old comes off a fifth at New Plymouth, which followed a run at Sale in his Australian debut.
The ability is there and it could pay to watch betting markets.
Race 8. (16:32) Irish Race Day BM68 (1200m)
#6 – Star of Uma @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The McEvoy-trained three-year-old was disappointing at Flemington last start but she’s better than that.
She is a three-time winner from nine starts and two of those wins have come at Morphettville. The wins also came at this distance, so conditions are ideal.
Barrier 12 isn’t ideal, but the 3kg claim helps and we’re expecting a big bounce back effort.
Race 9. (17:10) Pike & Joyce BM68 (1800m)
#1 – Tibetan @ $10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Tibetan is knocking on the door after consecutive placings and the four-year-old pays generous odds with bookmakers.
The Hickmott-trained son of Shocking performed well at Morphettville last start and the wet track conditions are of no concern.
Barrier two should see him roll forward and be tough to catch.
