Autumn Racing Carnival at Morphettville (May 1st-15th) Handicap Tips (Race 3)
Morphettville Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 3 Beau Rossa
With 11 winners so far this year at a strike rate of 29%, the Will Clarken stable is in very good form and he'll be looking to build further on that record this Saturday with this three-year-old who's found a very winnable first-up assignment.
Beau Rossa improved with racing throughout that first campaign, where he was heavily supported at start three and saluted by a big margin over the 1200m on the main circuit, with that Maiden bettering the time of the Benchmark 62 later on that November 3 program.
They thought enough of him to attempt to attempt a rich Vobis race across the border on Ballarat Cup Day, where he did fail but was at the end of his preparation and looking sharp in two jump-out wins ahead of this return, he's ready to strike fresh.
South Adelaide Panthers Football Club Handicap Tips (Race 4)
Morphettville Best Bet - Race 4 No. 1 Casino Seventeen
Narrowly defeated at his first two starts, they elected to geld Casino Seventeen before his second campaign where he resumed in a Gawler Maiden last October and bolted in fresh on a Soft 7 over the 1500m.
He was thrown in the deep end following that when contesting the Listed Hill Smith Stakes but was safely held behind the very smart Ain'tnodeeldun and Victoria Quay, who were both winners over the 2020 Melbourne Cup Carnival and was sent for a spell as a result.
The smart play for now with this three-year-old is just to take him through his grades and with a big first-up kill at Balaklava under the belt, he finds a small field that jockey Paul Gatt should be able to control from the front, a position that's always advantageous on the Parks circuit.
Fleurieu Milk Company Handicap Tips (Race 7)
Morphettville Value Bet - Race 7 No. 1 Alsvior
Although seven furlongs with 60kg to carry is probably right at his limits, it is a big drop in grade third-up for this gelding who continued to whack away second-up behind Second Slip, who was runner-up in the Listed Matrice Stakes on Adelaide Cup Day.
He worked through the grades sharply last winter, putting together a stretch of four victories in a five-start period which saw him rise from Benchmark 58 level in June, to defeating The Difference at Benchmark 72 grade in late September, a galloper that won his next start before a third-place finish in a Benchmark 90 on Melbourne Cup Day.
Getting some relief after the 2kg claim, Alsvior is a big and hulking type, so is well built to carry this impost while ahead of this step up to 1400m on Saturday, they have applied the winkers in a bid to sharpen him up as he has appeared a little one-paced over the shorter trips this preparation.
