Murray Bridge horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:56) G Edwards Crash & Tow BM82 (2500m)
#3 – Exalted Beast @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Exalted Beast is a four-year-old gelding that went close last start and that form should stack up nicely here.
The Grant Young-trained son of Good Journey owns four wins from 13 starts and we’re not surprised by the money coming for him.
He gets 3kg off his back and that brings him into contention.
Race 2. (12:31) Irongate Maiden Plate (1200m)
#1 – Lomax @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lomax owns three second placings from seven starts and he is getting close to breaking through.
The four-year-old son of Host comes off a second placing at Balaklava where he rattled home to finish a nose behind the winner.
Barrier 13 is an issue but he’s likely to get back and hit the line with power again.
Race 3. (13:06) Terminix Pest & Weed BM70 (1200m)
#5 – Star of Uma @ $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Star of Uma has yet to do anything wrong in her career, which includes two wins and three placings.
The McEvoy-trained daughter of I Am Invincible owns both wins over this distance and she was beaten by only a nose fresh up.
Barrier three is ideal and the $2.20 is well worth taking before she drops to an odds-on quote.
Race 4. (13:41) Edinburgh Hotel Social BM60 (1200m)
#3 – Koruto @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Koruto owns two wins from his last three starts and he fought bravely to win at Balaklava last time out.
The three-year-old son of Written Tycoon hasn’t had much luck throughout his career, so he could have a more imposing race record.
Barrier three is ideal and punters get each-way odds worth taking.
Race 5. (14:21) Elders Livestock & Wool BM60 (1200m)
#7 – Bullet Kid @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Bullet Kid is gunning for four consecutive wins and we wouldn’t be overlooking his chances at value odds.
He might be an eight-year-old, but he’s in career-best form and he showed a nice turn-of-foot last start, which is good to see.
Jeffrey Maund rides from barrier four and we expect another fine effort.
Race 6. (15:01) Mulch N More BM68 (1000m)
#11 – Winning Weather @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Winning Weather has finished first or second in six of her nine starts, so she is worth following this season.
The three-year-old daughter of Night of Thunder comes off two disappointing efforts, but she is much better than that.
The break should have done her some good and her best form comes early in the campaign.
Race 7. (15:41) Ridleys Plumbing BM64 (1600m)
#10 – Crypto Currency @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old owns four wins from 14 starts and he is good enough to go back-to-back after winning at Murray Bridge.
He won easily by 2.8 lengths and although rising in class for this contest, he loves the distance and punters get value odds.
With the weight advantage over the favourite, he could be tough to hold out.
Race 8. (16:21) McKechnie Concreting BM82 (1200m)
#7 – Designer Chef @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Barrier 16 makes it harder for Designer Chef, but we were impressed with his effort at Morphettville last time out.
The Mark Webb-trained five-year-old is rarely far away from the winner and with six wins and six placings from 17 starts, he demands attention.
He would be much shorter in the betting had he drawn a barrier.
Race 9. (17:00) Premi-Air Refrig BM68 (1400m)
#12 – Highly Discreet @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Highly Discreet is only a one-race winner but she should have won more races and this race is there for the taking.
The three-year-old wasn’t far behind Cherry Tortoni last start, which is a Group 1 horse. That form is stellar and punters get value odds.
Expect the $4 to drop considerably on race day.
