Morphettville Racing Tips For June 20 2020

Saturday racing in South Australia is back to Adelaide this week where the main Morphettville circuit hosts a nine race program and rain is predicted on Friday and Saturday.

Soft 6 is the current track reading whilst the rail is out 12m from the 1200m to the winning post and 8m for the remainder.

Holdfast Insurance Handicap Tips (Race 1)

Morphettville Next Best Bet - Race 1 No. 3 Sunshines

Caulfield trainer Nick Ryan is attempting a maiden victory over the border with this filly who was last seen making ground for second up the Flemington straight on June 6.

Following a fourth-placed Moonee Valley effort on debut back in February, she was tipped straight out and on resumption, was a little tardy out of the gates and was ridden colder as a result.

Although the form hasn't necessarily been vintage from that event, there was a prior Melbourne city winner back in that field and overall, she should find this much easier.

The appointment of strong senior rider Shayne Cahill is a big tick for Sunshines who with any improvement off that fresh run, will be the one they have to roll in the opener at Morphettville.


Furphy Handicap Tips (Race 6)

Morphettville Best Bet - Race 6 No. 3 Octane

The sea change to the Adelaide yard of Phillip Stokes worked wonders for this gelding who went undefeated from three outings in his first campaign for the new stable.

A half-brother to group one winner in The Quarterback and dual group two winner Vanilla, Octane is unbeaten from both attempts on the main Morphettville circuit which followed a win in slick time at Murray Bridge.

Arriving here of an outstanding jump-out win on June 9, barrier nine is perfect for this four-year-old and under Kayla Crowther who was aboard in all of them triumphs last time in, he'll be aiming for the middle and outside lanes late on this big track.

To date, Octane has handled all surfaces and in a very winnable first-up assignment, he can keep the picket fence going as the best bet at Morphettville this Saturday.

Zilzie Wines Handicap Tips (Race 7)

Morphettville Roughie - Race 7 No. 6 Break And Enter

He can mix his form hence the big odds but with seven wins and three placings from 30 career starts, the strike rate suggests he's a little more reliable overall than some of them fluctuations indicate.

A Victorian country cups galloper prepared by the Warrnambool yard Matthew Williams, this gelding's prior successes include Western Districts trophies via both the Coleraine and Casterton Cups.

After a fair fresh return, Break And Enter put in a howler at Sandown, albeit it was on a card when nothing made ground and in the last start Aspley Cup effort, he should've finished a little closer after striking some traffic early in the run home.

The stats of Break And Enter read superior on rain affected going and with five weeks between runs going into that Casterton run, he can improve here at a huge quote.
