Morphettville Racing Tips For April 18 2020

The Adelaide Autumn Carnival continues to warm up on Saturday with the Group Three Schweppervescence and RN Irwin Stakes headlining the Morphettville program this Saturday on what is currently a Good 4 surface.

The rail is out 10m from the 1200m to the winning post, 5m from the 2000m to the 1800m and is in the 8m position for the remainder.

Morphettville Favourites

Race 6 No. 1 Gytrash

The Group Three RN Irwin Stakes is one of the key lead-up races for the Adelaide Autumn Carnival and a strong nine horse field has been assembled for the 2020 edition.

Racing fans are in for a treat with the super consistent 2020 Lightning Stakes winner Gytrash taking on the returning star mare Sunlight, a three time group one winner and earner of over $6.5 million in prize money.

The residual fitness of Gytrash sees him as the narrow market elect off the back of an excellent Melbourne campaign where he's fast becoming one of Australia's premier sprinters.

If I had to pick one, I'd be ever so slightly leaning his way with the race fitness on his side, but it's a tough dual to split and it should be great battle.

Morphettville Best Bet

Race 3 No. 1 Charossa

This honest five-year-old gets his chance to bring up win number six with a solid grounding of three hit-outs this campaign.

He was just there to go around fresh over the 1100m which is too sharp but making the big rise straight to the mile at listed level following that, Charossa was brave for third in the CS Hayes Stakes.

The runner-up Caulfield performance on April 4 should top him off perfectly now and whilst he has the 61kg to carry, this gelding is a proven weight carrier having lumped this impost to victory over longer distances.

Second favourite Gigglon meets him much better at the weights from that CS Hayes but has to make up almost seven lengths on a fitter Charossa who's well placed in this company as the best bet at Morphettville.

Morphettville Next Best Bet

Race 8 No. 15 Silent Sovereign

It's a competitive Group Three Schweppervesence Stakes but with a lot of key threats drawing out, this filly maps for more favors from barrier five.

Prepared by the powerful father and son training combination of Tony & Calvin McEvoy, she was supported late ($15-$9) when resuming in Laelia Stakes on April 4.

She was unlucky on that occasion where after jumping superbly, was shuffled well back in the field throughout the run where besides Realm Of Flowers, found herself as the pick of the chasers for an eventual fourth placed finish.

Looking for Barend Vorster to be more positive in them early stages on Silent Sovereign and with that, is a good chance on an each way basis.

Morphettville Value Bet

Race 9 No. 4 Aiguilette

A winner of five from twelve starts overall is this son of Epaulette who should find this easier than his fresh attempt via listed company.

He certainly wasn't disgraced there when making some inroads from the rear in a midfield finish and was less than two and a half lengths off the winner Shamino.

Aiguilette is well down in class coming all the way back to a Benchmark 78 and only goes up one kilo courtesy of the Sophia Logan claim who'll look to drop him out early.

Undefeated from both second-up attempts and with two wins and two placings from five goes over the Morphettville 1200m, Aiguilette is ticking plenty of boxes for a $13 pop in the last from Morphettville.
