Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:05) Adelaide Galvanising Plate (1050m)
#1 – Gulf of Suez @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Maher/Eustace-trained gelding made a big impression on debut and that form could continue this week.
He scored emphatically by three lengths and that came against only a field of five, but it was a talented field.
The son of Fighting Sun could be in for a nice campaign.
Race 2. (13:41) Tab BM82 (2500m)
#1 – Andrea Mantegna @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Coming off a strong win at Morphettville is Andrea Mantegna, which relished the rise in distance when winning by over a length.
The eight-year-old rises up in distance again to 2500m and although inexperienced over this trip, he should handle it.
Carrying a big weight could be an issue but he’s the class runner of the field.
Race 3. (14:16) Soul Growers BM66 (1100m)
#1 – Alleboom @ $2.25 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Alleboom went boom at Flemington last start and that form is superior to anything else in this field.
The Jolly-trained colt now owns three wins from six starts and scoring down the straight at Flemington is not easy to do.
He gets the inside draw to work with on Saturday and his odds should firm.
Race 4. (14:51) Twilight Races BM72 (1600m)
#5 – Divanation @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Divanation hasn’t raced since failing at Flemington last year, but she looked good winning a recent trial at Murray Bridge.
The McEvoy-trained mare clearly needed the time off and she looks set to show something early. She is a past winner fresh up and despite the layoff, she should go close.
Look for a positive betting move on race day.
Race 5. (15:31) Furphy BM58 (1800m)
#1 – Campobasso @ $11 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Value is with Campobasso, which was good enough to run second last start and that form could carry over.
The Brett Campbell-trained gelding has yet to fire at this track, but his recent form suggests that a win isn’t far away.
The $11 is well worth taking and the 3kg claim helps.
Race 6. (16:11) Accolate Wines BM58 (1100m)
#12 – Four Of A Kind @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Four Of A Kind hasn’t done much wrong throughout her career and she is coming off consecutive placings at Morphettville.
The four-year-old mare has had two starts at this distance for a win and a placing, so there is plenty to like about her form.
After opening at $5, there has been steady money for her throughout the week.
Race 7. (16:51) Roadside Services City of Marion (1200m)
#5 – Too Good Too Hard @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Too Good Too Hard has the form on the board and although it’s not recent winning form, she looked good last start at Flemington.
The five-year-old mare finished second behind Fiesta, which is form that should stack up beautifully this season.
Drawing barrier 13 makes it tough but class takes her close.
Race 8. (17:31) Peter Elberg Funerals BM64 (1600m)
#3 – Li’l Hank @ $8.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Li’l Hank was good enough to score by 1.8 lengths two starts back, and although beaten last start, he rises back up in distance.
The five-year-old has finished in the placings in seven of his 10 starts, so the consistency is there and punters are getting value odds.
$8.50 is a price worth taking and that could shorten throughout the week.
Race 9. (18:07) Winning Edge Presentation BM68 (1200m)
#1 – Tullys Gold @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Tullys Gold has yet to finish worse than second from six career starts and the four-year-old is set to go close again.
The Ryan Balfour-trained gelding scored by 1.8 lengths last start and that was a dominant display. Therefore, he has every chance to go back-to-back and remain unbeaten at this distance.
Punters are getting value odds at the $4.80 price.
