Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:51) Schlid Estate Handicap (1000m)
#6 – Sghirripa @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The two-year-old gelding is on debut after winning at trial at Gawler and it came easily for the son of Lonhro.
He scored by 2.3 lengths in dominant fashion, and although these races can be hard to predict, he demands attention.
Barrier four is ideal and it could pay to watch market moves.
Race 2. (13:27) The Junction BM66 (1300m)
#7 – Scampton @ $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Scampton showed nothing on debut at Kilmore but she quickly improved to win at Kyneton last time out.
The Peter Moody-trained three-year-old was heavily backed to win, so the $8 available here is a value price.
She showed a good turn-of-foot and that should win her many more races.
Race 3. (14:02) Weslo Security BM86 (1000m)
#1 – All Banter @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
All Banter has yet to finish worse than second in three fresh up starts and that is an excellent sign.
The four-year-old mare also owns two wins and two placings from four starts at Morphettville, so she has every chance to win.
3kg comes off her back and we’re confident of a big effort.
Race 4. (14:37) Adelaide Cup Day BM68 (2250m)
#1 – Oath of Omerta @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Oath of Omerta is shooting for three consecutive wins after scoring on this track last time out.
The four-year-old son of Roman Emperor is unbeaten on this track from two starts and the future looks bright for him at this level.
$3.20 is a fair price and we don’t expect those odds to last long.
Race 5. (15:17) Terry Howe Printing BM64 (1550m)
#4 – Sky Call @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sky Call comes off a 1.3-length win at Morphettville and we like her chances of going back-to-back.
The six-year-old mare went forward and didn’t give the opposition a chance in the straight, so we’re hoping for similar tactics.
Getting a claimer in the saddle helps and punters should be confident.
Race 6. (15:57) Thomas Farms BM68 (1000m)
#4 – Philonize @ $2.45 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Philonize comes off three consecutive wins and we’re excited to see what the three-year-old filly can achieve.
The daughter of Reward for Effort has been primed with a trial win at Gawler and she has yet to finish worse than second on the track.
She could firm into an odds-on quote.
Race 7. (16:37) Adelaide Galvanising BM60 (1250m)
#4 – Fields of Ivy @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Fields of Ivy is a talented five-year-old mare who has won twice in a fresh state.
The McEvoy-trained daughter of Deep Field runs her best races on good tracks, so she should get conditions to suit on Saturday.
Getting 3kg off her back helps and she’s another smart type that should run well.
Race 8. (17:17) Furphy BM86 (1400m)
#3 – Embolism @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Embolism is better than advertised and if he’s anywhere near his best, he should be too good for them.
The Danny O’Brien-trained son of Shamus Award comes off a trial win at Geelong and that should get his confidence levels going.
Our only worry is where he’ll be placed from the draw, but include in selections.
Race 9. (17:55) Team Grand Join a Syndicate BM60 (1400m)
#4 – Frankel Star @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Frankel Star has yet to fire in three attempts at this track, but the six-year-old gelding owns two wins at the distance.
He is a son of Frankel who gets every chance off the inside draw with a 2kg claimer, so punters should be confident.
Punters get excellent odds and he’s worth having on your ticket.
