Morphettville horse racing tips

Race 1. (12:12) Travis Doudle Racing BM86 (1000m)

#2 – Alleboom @ $5.50 – Bet @ Neds

Alleboom is getting close to a win after running second at Murray Bridge last start and there’s little wrong with that form.

The four-year-old gelding loves racing at Morphettville with two wins and six placings from nine starts, so he’s never too far away.

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

Race 2. (12:47) Springfield Nostradamus BM64 (1550m)

#8 – Kween Kanali @ $6 – Bet @ Neds

Kween Kanali won narrowly on debut at Pakenham and she could remain unbeaten on Saturday.

The three-year-old daughter of Lord Kanaloa is in good hands and punters get value each-way odds.

It could pay to watch for any late betting moves on race day.

Race 3. (13:22) Morphettville Equine BM68 (1250m)

#9 – Obi @ $7.50 – Bet @ Neds

Obi runs some of his best races fresh up with five starts for a win and multiple placings.

The five-year-old gelding is only a two-time winner overall, but he placed at his only start at Morphettville and that’s a good sign.

Punters get each-way odds to scoop up.

Race 4. (13:57) Saroa There for Owners BM68 (1400m)

#1 – Melody Man @ $4.60 – Bet @ Neds

Melody Man owns three wins and five placings from 10 starts, so he is always around the mark.

The five-year-old son of Fiorente won his only start on the track and getting 2kg off his back brings him into contention.

Getting the inside draw is also ideal and the odds appeal.

Race 5. (14:32) Charles Melton Wines Oaklands (1400m)

#8 – Vagrant @ $3.80 – Bet @ Neds

The Mitchell Freeman-trained filly won on debut at Swan Hill before running a good fourth at Flemington behind Thron Bone.

The two-year-old has drifted with bookmakers throughout the week but she gets in with 54kg and has genuine winning claims.

We expect her to be right around the mark.

Race 6. (15:12) Horsemed SA BM80 (1950m)

#5 – Mr Pickwick @ $3.20 – Bet @ Neds

Mr Pickwick is shooting for three consecutive wins after scoring at Morphettville and he should get all favours from barrier two.

The four-year-old son of Magnus has drifted a touch since markets opened but we like his chances more than joint favourite Prince of Helena.

Watch for any late betting moves as we expect money to come.

Race 7. (15:52) Punt Club Support Racing BM68 (1000m)

#2 – Keep Reading @ $4.20 – Bet @ Neds

Keep Reading has yet to finish worse than third from six starts, including two wins.

The three-year-old son of Headwater was only a nose behind Sigh last time out and we expect that form to hold up nicely.

Barrier 12 isn’t ideal but he only needs luck to go close.

Race 8. (16:30) Grand Syndicate New Yearlings BM60 (1000m)

#6 – Deevine @ $4.60 – Bet @ Neds

Ryan Balfour lines up the five-year-old gelding who comes off a win at Gawler and he’s good enough to go back-to-back.

The son of Zebedee has yet to win from four attempts at the track but dropping in weight helps and there has been steady money.

He should be right in the mix against an even field.

Race 9. (17:05) Frano Pleic Memorial BM62 (1300m)

#2 – Toyz on Fire @ $11 – Bet @ Neds

Value is with Toyz on Fire, who hasn’t won for a while but she has always had the ability.

The Robert Hickmott-trained mare owns two wins and four placings from 12 starts, including two placings at the distance.

She is good enough on her day and we’re putting her in our selections.
