Morphettville Racing Tips 9th November 2019 - Can The Pugilist break his maiden?

South Australian racing is from Morphettville, but this time we are racing on the Parks track so the straight is shorter.

This may give the leaders the opportunity to put a margin on their rivals on the bend that they simply cannot make up.

The track should race Good for the entire meeting which is perfect conditions.

Morphettville Best Bet

Race 2 No. 6 The Pugilist

This galloper's form lines look even stronger on paper now that Pancho beat a very promising horse on Thursday at Flemington. This horse finished under five lengths away from Pancho two back and has been placed at Flemington previous to that effort.

He has had two trials from a 17 week spell, the latest saw him winning by three and a half lengths in strong style over 1000m.

That trial should have him ready for the 1400m first up where her certainly looks the one to beat.

Race 7 No. 1 Zalmona

You only have to look at this horse's form to see that he is high class and these odds of $5.50 are overs.

Last campaign he was beaten by Despatch three times, twice being a half length or under. 

Now that horse then went to win the Goodwood and prove competitive during the Spring Carnival in Melbourne.

Although this guy did not fire in the Goodwood, his lead up runs were fantastic.

He comes into this off the back of two trials on October 17 and  31, and holds a first up record of five starts for a win, two seconds and a third.

If this guy shows up to this race fit and sound, I do not think these horses have the ability to beat him.
