TAB Handicap Tips (Race 3)

Morphettville Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 3 Rogues Point

Whilst he's admittedly been a little costly in recent times, with the blinkers going on now third-up and to a mile, he's worth another chance in what appears to be a very winnable race.

A striking grey son of Mawingo, Rogues Point was last seen on the Ballarat Synthetic when grabbed late by Chase Award on June 28 with them two gallopers clearing out from the rest of the field and that winner has since placed in a Benchmark 70 at Moonee Valley.

This galloper has some genuine city class form around prior efforts which has seen him beat the likes of Florent who was group competitive over the Queensland Winter Carnival along with some other useful three-year-old's.

Barend Vorster takes the reins this Saturday on Rogues Point and he's expected to overcome the gate by rolling forward to give him every chance on the speed with that important gear change.


Adelaide Galvanising Handicap Tips (Race 4)

Morphettville Best Bet - Race 4 No. 4 Sign Of Ussuri

The powerful McEvoy & Vorster combination will be looking to bounce back with this talented three-year-old who was narrowly defeated last Saturday at Gawler as a $1.80 favourite.

Dropping back from a mile to 1500m was ultimately his undoing on that occasion via that tighter circuit which did follow two big victories and he's now attempting this 1950 metre trip for the first time.

The blinkers coming off will aid his chances in running out the extra distance and the manner in which he powered away to score over a mile two starts back suggests the journey shouldn't pose any problems.

Drawing for a soft run throughout from barrier three and has the galloper of this field with the most upside going forward, Sign Of Ussuri makes a strong case as the best bet at Morphettville this Saturday.


TAB Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Morphettville Value Bet - Race 8 No. 8 Wounded Soldier

A big improver in this big and competitive affair could arrive in the form of Wounded Soldier who does finally draw a gate after coming up with wide alleys in both runs this campaign.

Formerly trained by Kris Lees in NSW, Wounded Soldier headed to the South Australian stable of Karen Byrnes late in 2019 where he was spelled after what was no more than a fair effort at Gawler in December.

After finishing on heels in a decent return on July 4, the wide draw just left him with too much to do last Saturday, however, he was only beaten three lengths and comes back in grade off that performance.

The dreaded bar plates have now been removed off Wounded Soldier who can sit closer in transit from barrier six and his Provincial NSW form before coming over would have him in the mix for a race of this strength.
