Murray Bridge Tips August 8


Spry Civil Construction Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Murray Bridge Best Bet - Race 5 No. 3 Nasifa

With three runs now under her belt and stepping back to the 1200m looks the right set-up for this six-year-old from the local Kylie Huxtable stable who was unlucky when held up and forced off heels at key stage via her latest outing on July 25.

Although she was only beaten around two and a half lengths fresh at Morphettville, she did appear rather plain to the eye, however, first-up for six months and straight onto a Heavy surface is a decent excuse.

Nasifa was very brave following that performance when she was three-wide throughout here on July 4 and kept fighting despite peaking on the run to only be rolled by Silverhawk who won again last Saturday and four other individual winners have come out of that contest.

Back in grade here to a benchmark 68 against her own sex and only going up 1kg off her last run courtesy of the Sophie Logan claim, Nasifa looks well placed as the best bet at Murray Bridge this Saturday.


Neil Tanner Memorial Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Murray Bridge Value Bet - Race 8 No. 5 Dawn Salute

Despite not being able to put it together with a victory, this four-year-old has always shown some ability and resuming on New Year's Day 2020 over this track and trip, rewarded a good betting move ($9.00-$6.50) when breaking the maiden.

He was tipped straight out following that so there was clearly a little setback there but he hasn't lost much rhythm if his jump-outs are any guide and won his most recent hit-out on July 20 in soft fashion.

That maiden victory rated well for that card in going just under four lengths faster than the Benchmark 62 on that same program which is a stronger grade to what he finds here.

Barrier nine looks bout perfect for Dawn Salute on this big circuit where he can camp off the speed under Kayla Crowther and balance up late at an opening price that represents good value.

Murray Bridge Roughie - Race 9 No. 7 Splash Some Cash

This four-year-old generally takes a few runs to hit his straps and we did support him third-up at fair odds but had to settle for a second placing where he ultimately just found the seven furlongs a little on the sharp side.

Prior to that, Splash Some Cash was himself three and four wide for the entirety of the trip at Morphettville on July 18 but continued to whack away bravely with the two length defeat having plenty of merit.

The knock is that he now goes up in grade a little, however, he drops 1.5kg for his trouble and the step up now to 1800m is a plus off a good body of work so far this preparation.

The honest Splash Some Cash has some upside and as a galloper that's seemingly ticking over well, he can give a good sight on the speed in the last from Murray Bridge this Saturday.

Verdict

It's getting close to D-day for Nasifa in Race 5 who's hard fit now and well placed with the drop in grade along with the step up in trip.

Dawn Salute has caught the eye at the jump-outs and in what isn't a strong Race 8, he should definitely be respected and is a good price first-up.

Splash Some Cash gets the distance he's been searching for in the last from Murray Bridge and despite the rise in the rise in grade, is worth a little each-way ticket.
