Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:01) Furphy BM68 (1250m)
#2 – Jacobite Prince – Bet Now
Phillip Stokes lines up the three-year-old gelding that scored wins at his first two starts. His most recent effort came on this track where he battled on nicely in the straight.
His most impressive win came at Morphettville by two lengths last October, and anything close to that form would be good enough.
He’s a son of Choisir which is bred for speed and that could be on show this Saturday.
Race 2. (13:41) Metal-Link BM64 (1550m)
#7 – Kyshaka – Bet Now
Peter Hardacre has shown enough ability to date to warrant attention. The four-year-old mare has won half her career starts, including a second placing on this track last start.
The daughter of Time Thief faces a harder field here but she looks to have enough ability to win.
She gets some weight off her back via the apprentice claim, and that could be the winning difference.
Race 3. (14:21) Tab Handicap (1000m)
#8 – Enaaya – Bet Now
Team McEvoy lines up the two-year-old filly that scored a trial win at Gawler. That should hold her in good stead for this, and she’s bred to be better than average.
The daughter of Pride of Dubai gets the inside draw for her debut, and the market will be a good indicator of her ability.
Keep an eye on the tote for any positive betting moves.
Race 4. (15:01) Holdfast Insurance Maiden (1300m)
#13 – Intrigue – Bet Now
Intrigue was well-backed to score last start when finishing second, but she shouldn’t have lost many admirers.
The McEvoy-trained filly has placed in all four runs, and her time in the sun will come soon. She just requires a good run in transit and she should threaten.
Expect bookmakers to have her firm in the betting once again.
Race 5. (15:41) Festival of Racing R58 (1000m)
#8 – Pam’s Journey – Bet Now
Pam’s Journey is coming off her maiden win, which took some 13 starts. However, now that she has broken through, she’s capable of stringing wins together.
The Good Journey mare won by a half-length at Bordertown, and staying at this distance looks ideal.
It’s not a tough field to beat and we fancy her chances.
Race 6. (16:21) AAMI BM78 (1950m)
#1 – Master Chum @ $3.30 – Bet Now
Money is with Master Chum and it’s not hard to see why. The five-year-old gelding won three consecutive races before running second last start.
He was a touch unlucky not to win last time out, after settling midfield and coming with a big run down centre track.
He will have to lump around a big weight but he’s the class act of this field.
Race 7. (17:01) Terry Howe Printing BM64 (1250m)
#8 – Miracleofmiracles @ $3.40 – Bet Now
The Stokes-trained mare is coming off a narrow win at Morphettville, and she could go back-to-back.
She has made a good start to her career, which includes two wins from five starts. The daughter of More than Ready gets some weight off her back and that helps for this race.
We’re expecting a solid effort from the second favourite.
Race 8. (17:40) Schweppes Handicap (1000m)
#3 – Li’l Kontra @ $3.40 – Bet Now
Li’l Kontra likely needed the run fresh up, so we’re prepared to give her another chance. The Ryan Balfour-trained filly has missed a placing only once from 14 starts, so her consistency must be applauded.
She owns form behind the likes of Exceedance, Xilong, and Absolute Flirt. That form is hot for this race, which should result in a win.
The $3.40 is a good price and it should shorten.
Race 9. (18:15) Adelaide Galvanising 1MW (1400m)
#3 – Diplomatic Measure – Bet Now
Another quality runner from the McEvoy stable, the four-year-old gelding looks a top chance in the final race.
He owns three wins from five starts, including a half-length win at Port Lincoln last time out. It will be his first run at Morphettville, but it’s a track he should enjoy.
Drawing barrier 10 isn’t ideal but he has time to find cover and go close.
