Murray Bridge horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:22) In Mem of Caitlin Forrest Maiden (1200m)
#4 – Ice Symphony @ $2.50 – Bet @ Bet365
Ice Symphony didn’t have all favours when running fourth on debut and we’re expecting a better effort this time around.
The three-year-old gelding wasn’t too far away from Eros, which looks like a nice type in the making and he should find this easier.
$2.50 is a fair price after opening at $2.80.
Race 2. (12:57) Adelaide Event Catering BM72 (2500m)
#5 – Stern Idol @ $4.20 – Bet @ Bet365
Stern Idol is shooting for three consecutive wins after scoring at Warrnambool and Pakenham.
The Maher/Eustace-trained six-year-old won a hurdle by 15 lengths last start, and despite it being a jumping race, he has winning claims.
He has been backed in heavily and that’s a good sign.
Race 3. (13:32) Spry Civil Construction BM82 (1000m)
#8 – Quietly Discreet @ $2.25 – Bet @ Bet365
Quietly Discreet has drifted a touch in betting but the Clarken-trained runner comes off a tidy win.
The five-year-old daughter of Exceed and Excel owns five wins from 14 starts and carrying 54kg puts her right in contention.
We’re happy to take the odds available.
Race 4. (14:07) Northpoint Murraylands BM68 (1600m)
#3 – Bolt By @ $3.60 – Bet @ Bet365
Bolt By is already a two-time winner this preparation, including last time out at Morphettville.
The five-year-old son of Night of Thunder is a two-time winner on the track and having track experience here is ideal.
We expect another tidy effort from the loose favourite.
Race 5. (14:47) Marshall & Brougham BM78 (1400m)
#7 – So Say Angel @ $3.10 – Bet @ Bet365
So Say Angel owns four wins and four placings from 15 starts, so she’s rarely too far away from the prize.
The five-year-old daughter of So You Think has yet to finish worse than third at Murray Bridge and she owns two wins in soft conditions.
Getting the inside draw is ideal and the odds are fair.
Race 6. (15:27) Fred Vella Tyre Repairs BM60 (1800m)
#1 – Dirt on Harry @ $6.50 – Bet @ Bet365
Dirt on Harry won two back at Warracknabeal by five lengths before running well enough at Ballarat last time out.
The six-year-old son of Cluster owns three wins from 11 starts and if he’s anywhere near his form two back, he wins this race.
The odds are juicy and they could firm.
Race 7. (16:07) Jockey Celebration Day BM68 (1000m)
#3 – Taunting @ $3.40 – Bet @ Bet365
Taunting showed good consistency during his first campaign when posting two wins and a placing from five starts.
The Michael Hickmott-trained four-year-old ran fourth at Moonee Valley two back and fifth behind Extreme Flight last time out.
That’s slick form and he’s good enough to win here.
Race 8. (16:42) Carlton Draught R62 (1400m)
#13 – My Khalifa @ $5 – Bet @ Bet365
The four-year-old gelding is getting close to posting his second win after four starts this preparation.
He has yet to fire in two starts at Murray Bridge but he’s a past winner at the distance and this isn’t a strong field.
Punters get each-way odds to enjoy.
Race 9. (17:20) In Memory of S Montgomerie BM60 (1200m)
#9 – Rose Tycoon @ $3 – Bet @ Bet365
Rose Tycoon has yet to finish worse than third from five starts, including a win at Ballarat in May.
The five-year-old mare owns a second placing at Murray Bridge and having experience on the track helps.
$3 could shorten on race day.
