Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:55) Furphy BM64 (1000m)
#5 – Strike Award @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Strike Award comes off two solid jumpout wins and the two-year-old could make a winning debut.
The son of Shamus Award is a well-related type that runs at each-way odds and punters could cash in this Saturday.
Take the $4.40 before it drops further in the betting.
Race 2. (12:30) Dominant BM60 (1550m)
#6 – En Francais @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Jake Stephens-trained three-year-old did it easily on debut when scoring by 3.8 lengths.
She is a well-bred daughter of Puissance de Lune and she looks capable of rising through the grades in style.
Barrier six is ideal and $2.30 is a price worth taking.
Race 3. (13:05) Barossa Fine Foods Maiden (1000m)
#14 – Spinola Bay @ $2.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to cap off consistent form is Spinola Bay, which didn’t do much wrong when running second last time out.
The Richards-trained three-year-old owns three second placings from four starts and she deserves a winning turn.
The light weight is ideal and this is her best chance.
Race 4. (13:40) Weslo Security BM64 (1400m)
#3 – Tradewind @ $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Tradewind comes off two disappointing efforts but dropping in class helps and he could show immediate improvement.
The three-year-old owns two wins from eight starts and one of them came at this track and distance.
Getting the inside draw with an apprentice claim helps and we’ll happily take the $8 available with bookmakers.
Race 5. (14:20) The John Rix Memorial BM68 (1950m)
#5 – Exalted Beast @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Exalted Beast has already won three times this preparation and he could add another on Saturday.
The four-year-old son of Good Journey goes well at Morphettville and he’s also tough to beat over this distance, so punters should expect a big effort.
Barrier 11 makes it difficult but it shouldn’t matter too much over this distance.
Race 6. (15:00) Terry Howe Printing Handicap (1300m)
#13 – Fall on a Star @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Fall on a Star comes off a long-awaited maiden win at Gawler and she’s capable of going back-to-back.
The three-year-old by Zoustar had been expensive for punters, but she found her best form when scoring by 4.8 lengths and she could double down.
We expect plenty of money to come for her throughout the week.
Race 7. (15:40) Aramis BM68 (1550m)
#7 – Echo Boomer @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Echo Boomer found the lead last start and battled on well for third, so it was an encouraging display.
The Ryan Balfour-trained four-year-old is rarely too far away from the prize and she scored a win just three starts back.
Barrier 11 isn’t ideal but she shows good barrier speed and she could find the front again.
Race 8. (16:20) Tab BM72 (1250m)
#12 – Echoes in Eternity @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Michael Hickmott-trained three-year-old owns three wins from eight starts and she has plenty of upside.
She comes off a fourth at Murray Bridge and she showed a good turn-of-foot after being slow away from the barriers.
The inside draw is ideal and we’re expecting a big effort from the favourite.
Race 9. (17:00) 36 Degrees South Beef BM60 (1000m)
#1 – Mr Tee Kay @ $2.45 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Balfour-trained three-year-old comes off a win at Morphettville and he looks good enough to rise through the grades.
He broke maiden status with a 3.3-length win and he showed off superior speed. This isn’t the hardest field to beat and expect him to settle close to the speed.
$2.45 is a fair price and we expect money to come for him throughout the week.
