Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:02) G.H. Mumm Maiden (1100m)
#4 – Taunting @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Taunting comes off a second placing at Morphettville and the two-year-old colt is capable of going one better.
The son of Brazen Beau finished 2.3 lengths behind the winner, but he hit the line nicely and that form bodes well for this contest.
He only needs a touch of luck from barrier nine to figure in the finish.
Race 2. (12:37) Accolade Wines BM68 (1200m)
#1 – Japery @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Japery comes off a second placing at Flemington and that form stacks up brilliantly at Morphettville on Saturday.
The Patrick Payne-trained three-year-old owns three wins and three placings from 15 starts, so he’s consistent enough to worry them.
3kg coming off his back is ideal and $4 is a value price from bookmakers.
Race 3. (13:12) The Junction Maiden (1200m)
#6 – We Will Remember @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
We Will Remember showed improvement when finishing second at Murray Bridge last start and he could kick on with it.
The Will Clarken-trained three-year-old was only a nose behind the winner and he showed good barrier speed, which helps.
Punters should expect another tidy effort.
Race 4. (13:47) Furphy BM78 (1050m)
#6 – Larimer Street @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Larimer Street comes off a win at Morphettville and he looks good enough to go back-to-back at each-way odds.
The three-year-old son of Brazen Beau turned his form around considerably and he could start living up to expectations now.
Paul Gatt rides and having an experienced rider in the saddle helps.
Race 5. (14:22) Dominant BM60 (1526m)
#2 – My Boy Birmingham @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
My Boy Birmingham got the job done on debut at Ballarat and we expect that form to stack up nicely.
The three-year-old won by three lengths as a $3.10 chance, so we’re not surprised by the short odds this time around.
Our only concern is in the barrier draw, but he gets 2kg off his back and luck takes him close.
Race 6. (15:02) Cancer Council SA BM78 (2032m)
#5 – Lord Bouzeron @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lord Bouzeron comes off a 3.5-length win at Morphettville and we’re not surprised by the weight of money coming.
The five-time winner enjoyed the rise in distance last start and although dropping back to 2032m, he is a two-time winner over the journey.
Barrier four should see him lob into a nice position and be tough to beat in the straight.
Race 7. (15:52) SAJC Achievers BM68 (1600m)
#1 – Sarodec @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sarodec shows good barrier speed and he could be too tough to catch. The Richard Laming-trained son of Kermadec comes off an open-class win at Sandown and that form stacks up nicely.
It was his second win this preparation and although rising in weight, he should be tough to beat against this level of opposition.
His odds should firm on race day.
Race 8. (16:21) Tab BM68 (1200m)
#4 – Frankie Pinot @ $9.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Frankie Pinot is classy at best and he could make a winning start to this campaign. The four-year-old son of Your Song scored consecutive wins last campaign and he goes well fresh up.
He won his only start at Morphettville and although drifting after opening at odds of $6, we wouldn’t overlook his chances.
Barend Vorster rides and that helps.
Race 9. (17:00) Irish Race Day BM60 (1050m)
#2 – The Big Goodbye @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Big Goodbye owns two wins and five placings from eight starts, so he is professional and capable of scoring another victory.
He has yet to finish worse than third in three attempts on the track and the only worry is the wide draw, but he has shown good barrier speed in the past.
3kg comes off his back and that is a bonus.
