Morphettville horse racing tips

Race 1. (12:42) Adelaide Carnival BM76 (1200m)

#2 – Calypso Reign @ $2.70 – Bet @ Neds

The David Jolly-trained five-year-old comes off a tough run at Caulfield, but that was a very tough race.

He is a four-time winner and two-time winner at Morphettville, so he knows the track well and punters have climbed into his opening odds.

It’s not an easy field but we expect him to bounce back.

Race 2. (13:17) Thomas Farms BM72 (2032m)

#7 – Prince of Fences @ $2.25 – Bet @ Neds

Prince of Fences owns a win and three second placings this preparation, so he’s a runner with plenty of upside.

The four-year-old son of Magnus has yet to fire in two starts at the track, but he’s an adaptable type that should enjoy the rise in distance.

Dropping to 53.5kg is ideal and punters have rallied around him.

Race 3. (13:52) The Junction BM68 (1050m)

#1 – Elite Icon @ $2.80 – Bet @ Neds

Elite Icon is a speedster who ran second at Flemington on debut before posting a win and two placings at Moonee Valley.

The three-year-old gelding comes off a 1.5-length win at The Valley and we’re expecting that form to stack up nicely in this company.

Getting the inside draw is ideal for a runner that loves to ride the rails.

Race 4. (14:27) Happy 60th CP BM76 (1600m)

#3 – Fulton Street @ $8 – Bet @ Neds

Fulton Street is a 15-time winner with experience on his side, so punters should include him in selections.

The son of Street Cry comes off a fifth at Morphettville, but he was only 1.8 lengths behind the winner, so it was a nice effort.

He gets weight off his back and we’re taking the risk.

Race 5. (15:07) Dequetteville Stakes (1050m)

#2 – Bistro @ $3.10 – Bet @ Neds

Bistro is a two-time winner from three starts and the only time she didn’t win came at Caulfield.

The two-year-old won on debut at Sandown before finishing two lengths behind the winner. However, she bounced back with a win at Morphettville by three lengths.

It was an easy victory and we like her chances of winning again.

Race 6. (15:47) M’s Fabulous Birthday BM60 (1526m)

#1 – Café Rizu @ $5 – Bet @ Neds

Café Rizu was too smart for them at Morphettville last start and that form bodes well for this level of racing.

The four-year-old mare is unbeaten in two starts over the distance and getting an apprentice in the saddle helps with the weight.

Punters should be confident of another top effort.

Race 7. (16:27) Auraria Stakes (1800m)

#2 – Mac ‘n’ Cheese @ $3 – Bet @ Neds

Mac ‘n’ Cheese is unbeaten in two starts on the track and her form has been excellent since coming south.

The McEvoy-trained filly scored by three lengths last time out and that was a terrific turn-of-foot shown.

She’s classy and good enough to win her third on the bounce.

Race 8. (17:02) Port Adelaide Guineas (1800m)

#10 – Daisies @ $2.10 – Bet @ Neds

Daisies was too classy for a quality field at The Valley last start and that’s the best form guide coming into the Guineas.

The three-year-old filly ran fifth in the Victorian Oaks last preparation and that form is always going to stack up nicely.

55.5kg on her back helps and she’s the class factor.

Race 9. (17:40) Grand Syndicates Now BM60 (1100m)

#4 – Star of Manhattan @ $5 – Bet @ Neds

Star of Manhattan comes off a second placing at Ballarat and there’s little wrong with that form.

The daughter of Zoustar has yet to race at this track, but she loves the distance and getting 1.5kg off her back helps.

Punters get each-way odds and they’re worth taking.
