Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:22) G.H. Mumm BM68 (1400m)
#3 – Metro Legend @ $4.20 – Bet @ Neds
Metro Legend comes off a win and his confidence levels should have risen, so we’re prepared to follow him.
The four-year-old son of Redoute’s Choice won by three lengths and he could follow up the emphatic win with another.
It could pay to follow any positive betting moves.
Race 2. (12:57) PFD Foods BM60 (1250m)
#8 – She’s a Toff @ $3 – Bet @ Neds
David Jolly lines up the four-year-old mare who scored by Oakbank by two lengths last time to the races.
The daughter of Zebedee is unbeaten with apprentice Sophie Logan in the saddle and her 2kg claim goes a long way.
The odds are a touch short, but she could be the best horse in the race.
Race 3. (13:32) Thomas Farms BM78 (1000m)
#9 – Full Probe @ $4.50 – Bet @ Neds
Full Probe is a proven fresh up performer and he owns a win and a placing from two starts on the track.
The four-year-old son of Deep Field was only 1.7 lengths behind the winner last time out and rising in grade shouldn’t be a much of a problem.
The each-way odds are worth taking.
Race 4. (14:07) H C Nitschke Stakes (1400m)
#2 – Illation @ $2.70 – Bet @ Neds
Illation is a three-year-old colt who won on debut at Pakenham by 4.5 lengths, so we’re surprised at the odds.
The son of So You Think won at $1.40, so the $2.70 is a value price despite facing a much stronger field this time around.
Getting the inside draw is ideal and he has massive upside.
Race 5. (14:42) Breeders’ Stakes (1200m)
#5 – See You in Heaven @ $2.50 – Bet @ Neds
The Jolly-trained See You in Heaven owns two wins from three starts and she could add to her record.
She won by 1.5 lengths at Morphettville last time out when paying $12, but she won’t pay those odds again this season.
Getting in with a light weight helps and she’s our top pick in a tough Breeders’ Stakes race.
Race 6. (15:22) Chairman’s Stakes (2000m)
#5 – Son of Emperor @ $7.50 – Bet @ Neds
Son of Emperor owns three wins from his last four starts, including a last start win at Caulfield.
The three-year-old colt by So You Think defeated a good field last time out and that form stacks up well in Adelaide.
Drawing barrier 14 doesn’t make it easy but we’re backing him at the value odds.
Race 8. (16:37) City of Adelaide Handicap (1400m)
#2 – Groundswell @ $7.50 – Bet @ Neds
Groundswell didn’t fire at Bendigo last start but we’re expecting a bounce back effort on Saturday.
The six-time winner was much better when running fourth at Flemington behind Corner Pocket and he won his only start on this track.
He will push forward and try run the field into the ground.
Race 9. (17:10) James Squire BM78 (1300m)
#7 – My Boy Birmingham @ $3.90 – Bet @ Neds
My Boy Birmingham owns four wins from seven starts and we wouldn’t be betting against him.
The four-year-old didn’t fire a shot at Flemington last time out, but it came in a tough race and this is much easier.
He should be better for the spell and it’s good to see solid betting support come for him since markets opened.
