Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:12) Happy 60th Grant Jennings BM82 (2000m)
#4 – Exalted Ruth – Bet Now
It was a good effort to score from the back of the field last Saturday and Exalted Ruth could go back-to-back in quick time.
The Grant Young-trained mare finishing over the top of a good field and carrying a light weight is going to help her once again.
She is worth sticking with against this level of opposition.
Race 2. (12:47) AAMI BM68 (2500m)
#3 – Cracksman – Bet Now
Not much went right for Cracksman at Bendigo last start but his win at Morphettville prior is a better form guide.
The four-year-old son of Zoustar has yet to finish out of the money this preparation and he isn’t meeting an overly tough field this Saturday.
Drawing barrier three suits and he is worth a bet.
Race 3. (13:22) Tab BM66 (1200m)
#6 – Deevine – Bet Now
Deevine scored a win at Gawler last start but it’s his second placing behind Hypersonic that measures up best.
The Ryan Balfour-trained gelding ran 2.5 lengths behind Hypersonic, which has subsequently beaten a good field last Saturday.
That form bodes well for this grade and he could go back-to-back.
Race 4. (13:57) Furphy BM72 (1050m)
#8 – Rock Hard – Bet Now
Rock Hard is coming off a couple of poor efforts but he typically needs one run under his belt.
He owns the talent to win a race like this but his confidence needs to lift a touch. He is a winner of over $100,000 and not many BM72 four-year-old horses have that claim.
Having only 55.5kg on the back could bring him into contention at odds.
Race 5. (14:37) Dominant BM82 (1100m)
#5 – Octane @ $2.05 – Bet Now
Octane powered home to record a victory at Gawler last start and he looks good enough to rise through the grades.
The four-year-old is a five-time winner from only 11 starts and we’re not surprised by the short odds available from bookmakers.
The $2.05 could firm into $1.60 come race time.
Race 6. (15:17) Schweppes BM72 (1600m)
#1 – Analytica @ $5 – Bet Now
Travis Doudle lines up the last-start winner that extended his winning record to five wins from 20 starts.
The son of Shocking won by a nose at Gawler and that came over 1500m, so rising to the mile is only going to help his chances.
He will have to carry a big weight but the each-way odds are worth taking.
Race 7. (15:57) Tab Lightning Stakes (1050m)
#9 – Supreme Idea @ $4.20 – Bet Now
Anthony Freedman lines up the two-year-old filly that could go close fresh up. She faced tough fields during her first preparation, including Dame Giselle and A Beautiful Night.
She gets a 5kg weight advantage over Just Zerene and that could be telling over the concluding stages. Carrying 52kg is light and she has a strong rider in the saddle.
Watch betting markets with interest.
Race 8. (16:36) Holdfast Insurance BM64 (1200m)
#10 – The Difference – Bet Now
The Difference ran well for second at Murray Bridge last start and he made up a stack of ground in the process.
Trained by Team McEvoy, the son of I Am Invincible owns a win and a placing from four starts and he should go close in this race.
Barend Vorster takes the ride with a light weight so consider.
Race 9. (17:15) Tab BM58 (1100m)
#10 – Rose Tiara – Bet Now
Each-way money should be with Rose Tiara, which should improve with two runs under her belt this campaign.
The Peter Hardacre-trained three-year-old is a two-time winner and punters should get good odds with bookmakers.
Look for any positive betting moves come race day.
