Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:42) Roadside Solution BM78 (2500m)
#3 – Reflect the Stars @ $1.75 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Reflect the Stars deserves to be at short odds following three consecutive placings in Melbourne.
The Danny O’Brien-trained six-year-old finished second at Caulfield three back before running second at Moonee Valley. Her run at Sandown last start was fair, so she has the class edge on this field.
Punters must take short odds, but she should be winning.
Race 2. (13:17) PFD Food Services BM82 (1050m)
#2 – Alleboom @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
It’s only a matter of time before Alleboom wins another race after finishing second at Morphettville by a nose last start.
He is a past winner on the track and despite his recent form behind below his best, he shouldn’t have many problems in this class.
Expect a bounce back performance.
Race 3. (13:52) Mark Naley Tribute BM64 (1200m)
#7 – Miss Daniel @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Miss Daniel hit the line strongly in defeat at Morphettville last start, and she’s a filly worth following this season.
The three-year-old daughter of Starcraft won on debut by 1.5 lengths, which was a nice way to start her career.
She had no luck last start, so put her on top here.
Race 4. (14:30) Bradley Trade Services BM68 (1600m)
#4 – Hinchpin @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hinchpin doesn’t know how to run a bad race after recording one win and five second placings from nine starts.
The McEvoy-trained five-year-old was only a nose behind the winner last start, which had plenty of merit in the performance.
Barrier four should see him settle closer and be there to strike at the top of the straight.
Race 5. (15:07) Adi Secriean Last Stand Maiden (1200m)
#11 – Tavikat @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Most of the early betting support has come for Tavikat, who owns three placings from four starts.
The three-year-old son of Tavistock ran second at Murray Bridge last start behind Graceful Eagle, and we think that form bodes well.
Punters get better odds this time around, so the value is there.
Race 6. (15:47) Tindall Gask Bentley Law BM64 (1800m)
#8 – Sky Hero @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sky Hero hasn’t shown his best form this preparation, but we’re prepared to give him another chance at the price.
The Will Clarken-trained son of Sebring owns a win and three placings from 16 starts, and the soft track conditions are right up his alley.
Specked at each-way odds, so consider.
Race 7. (16:27) Morphett Arms BM64 (1050m)
#3 – Lohn Ranger @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lohn Ranger comes off a win at Morphettville and he’s capable of stringing wins together at this level.
The son of O’Lonhro does his best racing on this track, including a win and two placings from only four attempts.
Carrying a big weight won’t make it easy, but punters get odds worth taking.
Race 8. (17:05) Tab Supports the NJT BM78 (1200m)
#9 – Lombardo @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lombardo scored an impressive fresh up win at Morphettville before taking on tough opposition at Flemington.
He ran sixth behind Zorro’s Dream, which is a good form guide for this contest, and we’re prepared to overlook his most recent effort.
He’s well weighted and ready to win.
Race 9. (17:40) Happy 40th Mark Bolto BM60 (1200m)
#3 – Hot in Paris @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hot in Paris is a noted fresh up performer with two wins from four attempts. She hits the ground running and she could strike on Saturday.
The daughter of Sizzling does her racing in Melbourne, so she has faced tough fields throughout her career. Racing at Morphettville is ideal, and we’re confident of a good run.
We expect late money to come on race day.
