Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:01) Adelaide Galvanizing Handicap (1000m)
#1 – Ideas Man @ $2.50 – Bet Now
Ideas Man looked good when winning on debut before running into some stars. The two-year-old colt ran fifth behind Mildred at Caulfield and then 12th in the Blue Diamond behind Tagaloa.
Both Mildred and Tagaloa run in the Golden Slipper on Saturday at Rosehill, so this is a massive drop in class.
He should be able to get back to form.
Race 2. (13:36) Furphy 0MW (1000m)
#2 – Yankee Lou @ $4.40 – Bet Now
The David Jolly-trained four-year-old enters this race having scored nicely at Murray Bridge last time out. It was a narrow but impressive win from off the pace, so it bodes well.
He settled near last over the 900m and to pick up and win was a mammoth effort. It’s better to be on the pace, but they’ll go quickly here and she could adopt similar tactics.
Race 3. (14:16) Tab BM58 (1400m)
#5 – Gougers @ $3.80 – Bet Now
Gougers has been knocking on the door after consecutive placings and it’s not an overly strong field here.
The six-year-old is a three-time winner and he went close at Morphettville last start, which should be a good form line for this race.
It’s an even field and it should be an even market, so expect generous odds.
Race 4. (14:56) 36 South Beef R62 Handicap (1250m)
#3 – Social Media @ $21 – Bet Now
Social Media isn’t the most consistent type running around, but she’s experienced and that could play its part in this race.
She has had 63 starts for nine wins and 18 placings. That record is tough to ignore and she gets a good run from an inside barrier.
The $21 is worth taking.
Race 5. (15:36) Chad Hancock Foundation BM78 (2250m)
#4 – Classic Weiwei @ $2.15 – Bet Now
Classic Weiwei has been settling on the speed and running well this season. However, he needs to find his winning groove.
The McEvoy-trained four-year-old owns three wins and five placings from only 12 starts, so he has obvious ability.
This race looks his for the taking and we’re not surprised to see his odds firm in from an opening quote of $2.50.
Race 6. (16:21) AAMI Handicap (1250m)
#3 – Two Odd Sox @ $3.50 – Bet Now
Early money has come for Two Odd Sox, which hasn’t been racing with good frequency this season. He has been in work for a long time, but he continues to run competitive races.
He scored a win at Murray Bridge in January and backed that up with three consecutive placings. He’s nearing another win and he has found a winnable race.
Expect his odds to remain firm.
Race 7. (17:01) Adelaide Festival Handicap (1550m)
#1 – Perfect Route @ $2.70 – Bet Now
Winning form resides with Perfect Route, which has rattled off three consecutive wins this season.
The three-year-old gelding is unbeaten in two starts on this track and his most recent win came by 1.3 lengths.
He let down nicely in the straight and from the inside draw, we’re expecting another tidy effort.
Race 8. (17:36) Fleurieu Milk Company Handicap (1300m)
#4 – Beauty @ $2.45 – Bet Now
Beauty couldn’t back up her impressive win in February with a win last start, but she could bounce back nicely.
The McEvoy-trained mare ran fifth behind Runson last start, and there’s no Runson in this race. That helps and she’s ideally-placed at the weights.
Carrying only 55kg is ideal and she deserves attention.
Race 9. (18:15) M&J Chickens BM78 (1550m)
#1 – Lieder @ $26 – Bet Now
We are surprised at the odds for Leider, given that he owns a good second-up record. The seven-year-old has won and placed twice second-up, so consider him here.
The eight-time winner is past his best, but he ran well enough for fourth last start in a higher grade.
The $26 is a good price and worth taking in the last.
