Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:06) Stuart Nunn’s 70th Maiden (1000m)
#4 – Three Kings @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The two-year-old colt comes off a stellar trial effort at Oakbank where he scored by 4.8 lengths.
He is a well-bred son of Sebring that has a bright future and they don’t often take much time to win from this stable.
Money is coming and he could start much shorter in the betting.
Race 2. (13:41) Dominant Maiden Plate (1000m)
#2 – Jonquest @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Jonquest scored back-to-back second placings this kick off his career and he should breakthrough shortly.
The three-year-old son of Rebel Raider gets the inside draw and although not the favourite, his odds should shorten throughout the week.
$4 is well worth taking.
Race 3. (14:16) Barossa Fine Foods BM64 (1550m)
#6 – Echo Boomer @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Echo Boomer has figured in the finish in 14 of her 18 starts and that record shouldn’t be overlooked at this level.
The Ryan Balfour-trained four-year-old gets a 3kg apprentice claimer in the saddle and that could make all the difference.
Getting the inside draw won’t do his chances any harm either.
Race 4. (14:56) 36 Degree South Beef BM72 (2400m)
#4 – Stan The Caddy @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Will Clarken-trained four-year-old owns a win and two placings at Morphettville and he scored back-to-back wins earlier this preparation.
He finished fourth at Morphettville last start and that form should be good enough to compete at this level.
Each-way odds are available and we’re expecting a top effort.
Race 5. (15:36) Tab Adelaide Cup Day BM62 (1250m)
#4 – Annika @ $2.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Annika comes off a win at Morphettville and she is capable of going back-to-back with the right run in transit.
The four-year-old mare owns three wins from 14 starts and she won her only start over this distance, which bodes well.
Punters should expect short odds on race day.
Race 6. (16:16) Adelaide Galvanising BM62 (1400m)
#2 – Mr Raikkonen @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lloyd Kennewell lines up the three-year-old colt that didn’t fire at Sandown, but he has the ability to take this out.
He scored a brilliant maiden win four starts back and with the aid of a 2kg claimer, his chances seem high.
Barrier two is ideal and punters get value odds.
Race 7. (16:56) Chapel Hill BM78 (1400m)
#10 – Angaston @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Angaston fired up at Pakenham when scoring by 1.5 lengths and he comes off a nice effort for fourth at Morphettville.
The four-year-old gelding gets in with an ideal weight of 54kg and he should be tough to beat against this level of opposition.
He has been well backed and expect that trend to continue.
Race 8. (17:31) Furphy BM60 (1400m)
#1 – Viduka @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Coming off five consecutive placings is Viduka, which gets some help with the big weight via a 3kg apprentice claim.
The five-year-old gelding owns two wins and 10 placings from 16 starts, which is a supremely consistent record.
Punters get value odds and he should be right around the mark.
Race 9. (18:11) RDC Partners BM60 (1000m)
#1 – Larkham @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Larkham comes off a win on this track and the four-year-old gelding could go back-to-back.
He scored by 3.3 lengths in a dominant display and if he gets a good run from a wide barrier, he will be the testing material.
3kg comes off his back, so put on top.
