Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:50) Barossa Fine Foods Maiden (1000m)
#6 – Taunting @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Taunting is an expensive sales purchase that could make a winning debut. The two-year-old colt won a trial at Morphettville and he showed a good turn-of-foot.
He is a well-bred son of Brazen Beau that draws barrier 12, but he will likely settle back and hit the line with power.
$3.10 is worth taking in the opening race.
Race 2. (12:25) 36 Degree South Beef Maiden (1000m)
#11 – Royal Obsession @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Royal Obsession didn’t fire on debut at Geelong but she had good betting support and it’s the same case here.
The Corstens-trained three-year-old has been heavily backed into $3.40 and dropping to 52.5kg is a primary reason for that.
We’re confident she can give punters a better sight and we wouldn’t leave her out of calculations.
Race 3. (13:00) Fleurieu Milk Company BM68 (1550m)
#1 – Jaguary @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Jaguary is a former Kiwi runner that made a good impression when winning at Morphettville last time out.
It was the five-year-old’s second win on the track and although it came by a nose, it was a tough outing and he’ll be better for it.
3kg comes off his back and any weight relief is a bonus.
Race 4. (13:35) Weslo Security BM60 (1300m)
#4 – Ambidazzle @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ambidazzle ran second behind Jaguary last start, so Race 3 could be a good form guide for this contest.
The Phillip Stokes-trained five-year-old owns only one win from 11 starts at the track, but she also owns six placings.
She doesn’t have to do much work off the inside draw and punters get fair odds from bookmakers.
Race 5. (14:15) Furphy BM68 (1250m)
#5 – Kenobi @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kenobi couldn’t have been more impressive on debut and we’re surprised his odds aren’t much shorter.
The Ryan Balfour-trained three-year-old rampaged the field by five lengths and he kicked clear on the turn and never looked back.
We expect his odds to firm to around $2.40 come start time, so take the value odds available.
Race 6. (14:55) Chalk Hill BM68 (1000m)
#7 – He’s Exclusive @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Will Clarken-trained four-year-old scored a win fresh up last campaign and he could repeat the dose on Saturday.
He is a former New Zealand runner that comes off a trial win and placing in Australia, which should have him prime and ready to go.
The Kiwis are running well in Adelaide and he could be the next cab off the rank.
Race 7. (15:35) The Junction BM60 (1300m)
#2 – Greetings Ned @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The six-year-old gelding is having his first start at Morphettville but there have been solid betting moves come his way.
He comes off a second placing at Strathalbyn and it was his fifth placing from his last six starts, so he’s knocking on the door.
3kg comes off his back and it could pay to take the each-way quote.
Race 8. (16:15) Tab BM72 (1950m)
#4 – Not Usual Glorious @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Not Usual Glorious is another former Kiwi that won at his first Australian start for Travis Doudle. The four-year-old scored by 1.3 lengths on this track and he carried over his form from across the Tasman.
He is now a four-time winner from 10 starts and rising in distance is only going to help his chances. He won over 2000m at Matamata two back, so the 1950m looks ideal.
Barrier one helps and we’re expecting another top effort.
Race 9. (16:55) Nigel Tippett’s 60th BM72 (1250m)
#1 – Flying Award @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Flying Award has the class edge and although his last two starts were poor, he is a quality type that could bounce back.
He finished behind Crosshaven and September Run at his last two starts, so dropping out of Group 1 grade could have instant results.
The change of stable is interesting, but we wouldn’t overlook his chances, especially at the odds.
