Murray Bridge horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:15) Bleasdale Wines Maiden (1200m)
#9 – Release The Hounds – Bet Now
Phillip Stokes lines up the three-year-old gelding that ran a good race when fourth on debut.
The three-year-old by Foxwedge was only 1.6 lengths behind the winner at Morphettville. She flashed home late after settling well back and securing the inside draw is ideal here.
We’re expecting her to win a race very shortly.
Race 2. (12:52) Ridley’s Plumbing BM82 (1200m)
#6 – Enough Swagger @ $2.20 – Bet Now
The four-year-old mare has won three consecutive races and the opposition hasn’t come close of late.
A daughter of Love Conquers All, Enough Swagger scored by two lengths two starts back and followed that up with a 2.8-length win at Gawler.
Most of the early money has come her way and we’re expecting her to start around an odds-on quote come race day.
Race 3. (13:27) The Reppucci Family Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Aurman Zou – Bet Now
Aurman Zou scored a breakthrough win at Murray Bridge two starts back. It was his first win from 16 starts and although beaten last start, returning to this track is ideal.
The four-year-old by Zoustar scored her only win on this track and it came emphatically by 3.8 lengths.
That win is going to hold him in good stead for this and we’re expecting another tidy effort.
Race 4. (14:02) Beverley & Trevor‘s 50th 1MW (1000m)
#5 – Silver Lining @ $2.90 – Bet Now
Silver Lining is also nominated at Flemington but we’re expecting her to line up against an easier field here.
The three-year-old scored by just under a length on debut at Gawler and having that experience will only do her good.
Trainer Will Clarken has a fairly good opinion of this runner and the daughter of Akeed Mofeed looks a good bet.
Race 5. (14:47) Premi-Air Refrigeration BM56 (1000m)
#1 – Mum’s My Hero – Bet Now
Coming off a one-length win at Morphettville is Mum’s My Hero. The five-year-old has made a good start to this career and that could continue this Saturday.
The son of Von Costa de Hero dictated the pace throughout most of the race last start, scoring his third win from nine starts in the process.
He has been punished in the weights at 65.5kg but this is only a rating 56 event and he’s miles better than that.
Watch the tote for any betting moves.
Race 6. (15:17) Beverley Curtis 70th BM78 (1400m)
#6 – Jentico @ $2.90 – Bet Now
Jentico owns four wins from 10 starts and she looked like a rising star early on.
She hasn’t quite lived up to expectations since but she won back-to-back races at Morphettville to start this season and that form is tough to overlook.
That included a win over Enough Swagger, so that form could be franked earlier on the card.
He needs a bit of luck from barrier 11 but the odds on offer are good enough to take the risk.
Race 7. (15:57) Don’t Bother Me @ Glenrae BM78 (2000m)
#6 – Pass The Glass @ $8.50 – Bet Now
Pass The Glass turned her form around with a win at Bordertown last start and although this is harder, she scored easily.
She won by 2.5 lengths after settling back in the field and that should hold her in good stead against tougher rivals.
Her form prior had been only fair but with the confidence back up, she could easily kick on with it and win at each-way odds.
Race 8. (16:40) Am&Me Langsford BM64 (1600m)
#1 – Exalted Dee @ $10 – Bet Now
Punters are getting nice odds for Exalted Dee, which hasn’t finished worse than first or second at her last four starts.
The Grant Young-trained seven-year-old recorded wins at Gawler and Morphettville. She has a good record on this track with three starts for a win and a placing, so consider here in this race.
The double-figure odds might not last come race day.
Race 9. (17:25) S Downs Putters Club Handicap (1200m)
#3 – Counter Drive – Bet Now
Punters are getting a little frustrated with Counter Drive this season after recording three placings from three starts.
The four-year-old is a two-time winner from 17 starts but has eight minor placings. There is nothing wrong with that consistency but he hasn’t won since June and needs to pay off punters.
It could come here against a tidy field in the last race.
