Morphettville horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:02) Weslo Security BM64 (1100m)
#1 – No Drama @ $2.80 – Bet @ Neds
No Drama scored a win at Riccarton in New Zealand before being sold to Australian interests, which is a good sign.
The two-year-old won by 1.3 lengths as a $1.60 chance, so the money was on and it’s the case again on Saturday as the $2.80 favourite.
We expect to see more money come for him on race day.
Race 2. (12:37) The Junction BM64 (1200m)
#5 – Sacred Amour @ $4.20 – Bet @ Neds
Sacred Amour is another former New Zealand runner who has been racing well enough since arriving in Australia.
The four-year-old son of Sacred Falls owns two placings from three attempts at Morphettville and it’s bred to handle wet tracks.
The each-way odds are worth snapping up.
Race 3. (13:12) Leconfield BM78 (2500m)
#2 – Taramansour @ $5 – Bet @ Neds
Taramansour was only 1.1 lengths behind the winner at Swan Hill last start and that form could stack up nicely in this company.
He had been facing stronger fields in the city but the five-year-old son of Dansili was looking for something slightly easier and he gets it here.
Include in selections off the inside draw.
Race 4. (13:47) George Page Memorial BM68 (1200m)
#10 – Chicago Storm @ $4.80 – Bet @ Neds
The three-year-old gelding comes off a win and we like his chances of kicking on with it this preparation.
He handled the heavy track at Balaklava with ease when scoring by 4.8 lengths, so he’s a swimmer and conditions are right up his alley.
Carrying 55.5kg on his back is ideal punters get each-way odds.
Race 5. (14:22) Fleurieu Milk Company BM60 (1524m)
#11 – En Francais @ $4.40 – Bet @ Neds
En Francais has yet to finish worse than third from four career starts and she should be right in the mix here.
The four-year-old mare by Puissance De Lune wasn’t far behind them at Murray Bridge last start and drawing wide isn’t too much of a negative.
The each-way odds are worth taking in an even contest.
Race 6. (14:57) Happy 40th Ben Arezina BM86 (1200m)
#5 – Sacred Palace @ $3.90 – Bet @ Neds
Lindsay Smith lines up the four-year-old son of Sacred Falls who comes off a placing at Caulfield.
He finished under a length behind Jigsaw and we love that form going forward, so we’re surprised he’s not shorter in the market.
Barrier two is ideal and he only needs clear running room.
Race 7. (15:35) Grand Syndicates BM80 (1600m)
#8 – Eagles Crag @ $3.80 – Bet @ Neds
Eagles Crag is knocking on the door after back-to-back second placings and he is a classy type on his day.
The five-year-old son of Fastnet Rock owns three wins and three second placings from eight starts, so he rarely runs a bad race.
Barrier 14 makes it harder but he has time to find cover and finish best.
Race 8. (16:15) Furphy BM68 (1050m)
#3 – Modear @ $8.50 – Bet @ Neds
Modear goes best fresh up with four starts for two wins and she could hit the ground running on Saturday.
The five-year-old mare comes off a tidy effort at Morphettville and getting 3kg off her back helps with the big weight.
We expect her to be right around the mark.
Race 9. (16:52) Charles Melton Wine Lunch BM68 (1800m)
#6 – Cashin’ Chex @ $9.50 – Bet @ Neds
Cashin’ Chex hasn’t done much wrong this preparation, including a win at Morphettville followed up by a third placing.
The five-year-old gelding runs at generous odds here and they’re worth taking on an each-way basis.
We wouldn’t be leaving him out of selections.
