Murray Bridge horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:17) Magic Millions BM76 (1000m)
#8 – Spanish Heirloom @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Travis Doudle-trained mare is a four-time winner from six starts and that’s a healthy way to start a career.
She is unbeaten in four starts over 1000m, so she’s staying at the sprint distances and that bodes well for a big effort on Saturday.
2kg comes off her back and carrying 53kg is a steal.
Race 2. (12:52) Spry Civil Construction BM68 (2000m)
#5 – Hostar @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hostar doesn’t have excellent form leading into this race, but the field is weak and he could return to his best.
The seven-year-old son of Host is tough to beat on his day and looking at a new track could spark him into gear. His most recent outing came at Sandown, so racing at Murray Bridge is a step down in class.
Jessica Eaton rides and he’s worth keeping safe.
Race 3. (13:27) Jockey Celebration Day BM86 (1400m)
#8 – Stuck By @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Stuck By is another talented runner from the Doudle stables and he was good enough to score four wins last season.
The four-year-old gelding comes off a disappointing run on this track behind Zoushine, but that was a tough open-class field and he should find this easier.
54kg on his back is ideal and we’re expecting a bounce back effort.
Race 4. (14:07) In Memory Caitlin Forrest Maiden (1200m)
#1 – Castle of Kings @ $2.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Will Clarken lines up the four-year-old son of Castledale and he looks ready to break through after two placings.
He finished second on debut in New Zealand before coming to Australia and running third behind Victory Club at Murray Bridge. Having experience on this track helps and we’re expecting a big effort.
The betting support is there and he only needs luck from the draw.
Race 5. (14:47) Adrian Pederick BM68 (1200m)
#6 – May’s West @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Most of the money has come for May’s West, which scored an impressive win on a heavy track at Gawler last time out.
The four-year-old daughter of Helmet scored emphatically by 5.5 lengths and it suggests she could rise through the grades with ease.
Her opening odds of $4.60 have been taken, so follow the money.
Race 6. (15:27) Congrats Grant Young BM60 (1600m)
#3 – Fighter @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
It may have taken Fighter seven starts to score an overdue win, but the McEvoy-trained gelding is worth following.
He scored at Ballarat by a narrow margin as the $1.50 favourite, but it should give him confidence and he’s capable of winning back-to-back races.
Punters get value odds and he only needs luck from the barrier.
Race 7. (16:07) In Memory Simone/Melanie BM60 (1000m)
#1 – Mutinous @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Doudle stable is worth following on Saturday and it lines up Mutinous, which scored consecutive victories at Balaklava and Gawler.
He scored easily by 3.8 lengths last time out and he likes to push forward and run them into the ground, which always helps at Murray Bridge.
Barrier six is ideal and we expect a big effort.
Race 8. (16:45) Riverscape Food & Wine BM68 (1200m)
#3 – Yulong Code @ $2 – Bet @ Sportsbet
That was an impressive win at Sale from Yulong Code last start and we expect that form to stack up nicely in Adelaide.
He is a four-year-old that owns two wins from seven starts and he handles all conditions, so the wet track shouldn’t be an issue.
$2 is getting short, but he is the hardest to beat.
Race 9. (17:20) Congrats Michael Hickmott BM64 (1400m)
#1 – Crypto Currency @ $7.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Crypto Currency didn’t enjoy the heavy conditions at Ballarat last start but he should enjoy the easing of the surface at Murray Bridge.
The five-year-old gelding is a five-time winner from 18 starts and he owns winning form on the track, which is always a bonus.
$7.50 is well worth taking and the odds could firm on race day.
