Murray Bridge Racing Tips May 23 2020

Metropolitan Saturday racing in South Australia heads to Murray Bridge this week where a competitive nine event card awaits punters.

There is a chance of showers of Friday and race day on what is currently a Good 4 surface where the rail is in the 5m position from the 1200m Chute to the 800m, out 4m from the 800m to the winning post and true for the remainder.

Gold Cup Friday 16th October Handicap Tips (Race 4)

Murray Bridge Value Bet - Race 4 No. 8 Mabel Josephine

Prior to her group two attempt via the Queen Of The South Stakes on May 2, this mare was ticking over very well for a race of this nature.

A striking grey by Dalakhani, she was working home strongly over six and then seven furlongs when beginning her campaign and although outclassed last time, she certainly wasn't disgraced on what was a tough card to make ground on.

Mabel Josephine has drawn well out in barrier fifteen, however they have been riding her cold of late and on a circuit here where they can generally run on, it's not the worst place for her to be.

It's big drop back to a Benchmark 64 and with that mile run now under her belt, Mabel Josephine represents the each way value in the fourth from Murray Bridge at a double figure quote.

IronGate Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Murray Bridge Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 11 Manzala

This gelding was in the worst part of the track at Morphettville when trying to pick-up with 61kg on his back on Derby Day.

If he had the benefit of that preferable outside position in the run for home, I suspect Manzala takes out that event where he still managed to find a second wind late and get within half a length of the winner.

Admittedly the benchmark here and overall depth is a little stronger, however there's queries on most of his opposition and after lumping around some big imposts, he won't know himself with 54.5kg after the Lachlan Neindorf claim.

With that weight relief and coming up with gate three this time, I suspect they'll be positive on Manzala early who's in-form at the right time for a race like this.

Magic Millions Handicap Tips (Race 6)

Murray Bridge Best Bet - Race 6 No. 4 Lakhani Rose

She broke our hearts when missing out by the narrowest of margins as our best bet on May 9 at $8, however in something a little easier, this four-year-old is worth another chance.

Prepared by the astute David Jolly yard who has given followers an impressive 53.3% return on investment from seven winners at Murray Bridge this season, the form through Star Hills from two starts back reads well against the favourite in Symphonette here.

Although Symphonette was unlucky last week when not getting clear air until the 100m, I'm not sure she necessarily exploded when out anyway and this mare can tag her home.

The draw and slightly smaller field are both in the favour of Lakhani Rose who is flying and if they're able to rattle home out wide, she'll be launching late as the best bet at Murray Bridge this Saturday.
