Murray Bridge Tips October 16

Rural City of Murray Bridge - Make It Yours / SABOIS Maiden/Class 1 Plate Tips (Race 2)

Murray Bridge Best Bet - Race 2 No. 3 Karpool Khan

This ex-Freedman galloper showed ability in three Victorian starts which netted a debut win at a short price before a pair of third-placed finishes in his first campaign.

Although somewhat surprising that he was moved on, the easier South Australian jurisdiction should see him accrue more success and in three outings so far for the new stable, he's been near on faultless.

Karpool Khan has been doing his best work late over firstly seven and eight furlongs before his most recent attempt where he was trapped three-wide throughout on the speed in a race set up for the swoopers and still fought on to only be beaten half a length.

He faces a different challenge courtesy of Oath Of Omerta's inclusion who's coming from a debut city win, but with a soft draw and a senior hoop now engaged on this son of Tavistock, he gets another chance.

Spry Civil Construction / SABOIS Maiden Plate Tips (Race 3)

Murray Bridge Value Bet - Race 3 No. 8 Smart Vision

The astute local stable of John Hickmott now finally steps this mare over some distance with the 1800m journey looking ideal off three runs this campaign which have all had merit.

She was hard to miss first-up at 80/1 when rattling home for third at Gawler and has mostly held her form with a last start fourth-placed finish via that same circuit on October 5 after settling last from a wide gate.

The discrepancy in the market here does appear to be between Smart Vision and $2.90 race favourite Mr Pocket, a galloper that this mare should've beaten two starts back at Murray Bridge if it wasn't for some interference.

With Sophie Logan taking 1.5kg off with her claim and drawing barrier one, we're hopeful of more positive tactics early aboard this four-year-old who's in the mix at a double figure quote.

Burke Urban/ SABOIS Maiden Plate Tips (Race 4)

Murray Bridge Roughie - Race 4 No. 7 Pennyweight

Our rough speculator selection on the Murray Bridge Cup program comes in the form of this ex-New South Wales galloper who's having her first in South Australia on Wednesday.

Now under the care of the Greg Lesnikowski stable, Pennyweight admittedly produced little in her first racing preparation aside from a runner-up on debut but has been plenty of time and the recent jump-out for the new yard was superb.

She led throughout via a September 3 heat at Strathalbyn and cruised to the line under a good hold to take out that trial in nice fashion under Claudia Lyons who remains in the saddle for race day.

Pennyweight has the speed to be handy over this 900m scamper and with a with a few key gear changes, she may one creeping under the guard in a very open line-up.

Carlton Draught Murray Bridge Gold Cup Tips (Race 7)

Murray Bridge Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 12 Wings Of Pastrami

She was ultimately just a run short second-up on October 3 when grinding home for second behind the early 2020 Murray Bridge Cup favourite Aqueduct over 1400m, but does have more in her favour this time around.

Wings Of Pastrami meets that runner two kilos better off from that last start attempt and she was taking some ground of him late there with the top two home clearing out from the rest of the field.

This mare was super competitive at stakes-level throughout the autumn where she was only a stride off a listed victory second-up and was beaten just over two lengths in Group One Australasian Oaks at the back-end of that preparation.

We're continually seeing the form stack up from that fillies feature with a field that included Toffee Tongue, Affair To Remember, Walking Flying and Asiago, which reads superbly for this year's Murray Bridge Cup line-up where outside the top four or five hopes, there's a very long tail to the field.
