Morphettville horse racing tips

Race 1. (12:52) Furphy BM86 (1600m)

#6 – Tradewind @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Tradewind should appreciate dropping to 52.5kg after running fifth at Moonee Valley, which is a good form guide.

The four-year-old is a three-time winner who opened at $8 and has been backed into $5, which is a sizable move.

We’re happy with the odds in the opener.

Race 2. (13:27) Adelaide Racing Carnival Maiden (1100m)

#2 – Lord Luker @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet

The second favourite comes off back-to-back second placings and he could make a winning debut.

He also comes off a trial win at Gawler against a nice field, so that’s a good sign going forward this season.

Barrier two is ideal and punters get each-way odds.

Race 3. (14:02) Zilzie Wines BM68 (1200m)

#3 – Sharwin @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Sharwin already owns two wins from three starts and the Freedman-trained filly has plenty of upside.

She won on debut at Kilmore before finishing third at Stony Creek, but she rebounded with a 1.8-length win at Pakenham.

Money has come for her and the $2.70 is a fair price.

Race 4. (14:37) Weslo Security BM60 (1600m)

#4 – Prince of Fences @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Michael Hickmott comes off a six-length win and there is nothing wrong with that form.

The four-year-old son of Magnus wasn’t facing much of a task and this is harder, but he’s a progressive type.

Barrier two is ideal and most of the early money has come for him.

Race 5. (15:17) Lord Reims Stakes (2600m)

#2 – Hasta La War @ $1.95 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Hasta La War is a seven-time winner from 20 starts and he owns a win at Morphettville, so that bodes well.

The six-year-old runs best on good surfaces and there has been a stack of money for the favourite. He is paying $1.95, and although that’s short, he’s worth backing.

Look for a strong betting push on race day.

Race 6. (15:57) Grand Syndicates BM86 (1100m)

#7 – Zorro’s Dream @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Zorro’s Dream is only a four-time winner from 20 starts, but he also owns 12 placings, so we love his consistency.

The five-year-old son of Toronado has yet to race at Morphettville, but he loves the distance and he has faced much harder fields.

Getting a 2kg claimer in the saddle helps and punters should be confident.

Race 7. (16:37) Thomas Farms BM68 (1200m)

#5 – Young Jimmy @ $10 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Young Jimmy got the better of a nice field at Morphettville last start and he could be a runner to follow.

The six-year-old made a late start to his career, but he has won four on the bounce and beating Startup last start is an excellent form guide.

Punters get double-figure odds again and we’re not turning it down.

Race 8. (17:17) Tab Adelaide Cup BM68 (1800m)

#11 – Harleymoven @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet

The three-year-old gelding is a two-time winner from six starts and he does his best racing on this track.

He owns a win and a placing from two starts and the win came two back when winning by two lengths, so it was a good effort.

His turn-of-foot should see him competitive against this company.

Race 9. (17:55) The Junction BM64 (1050m)

#1 – Heyington Station @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Heyington Station wasn’t beaten too far last time out when making a fresh start, so we’re giving him another chance.

The five-year-old runs his best races on good surfaces and getting the inside draw with a 3kg claimer in the saddle is a bonus.

$6.50 is well worth taking.
