Morphettville Tips August 28


Fresh Kitchens Handicap Tips (Race 4)


Morphettville Next Best Bet - Race 4 No. 8 Kong

At only start three, this four-year-old was resuming behind a genuine Group class sprinter in Beau Rossa over the 1050m in the Listed Lightning Stakes, which certainly wasn't a winning set up, but he still got home okay behind that dominant winner.

Beau Rossa was only beaten on protest by Behemoth at WFA level in the Spring Stakes, so it's fair to say Kong should found have the BM60 event on August 14 much easier, which he did, but the 1100m was still too short for him to figure.

While this is a little harder at BM68 level, I really liked the way he balanced up late second-up and along with being one of the more progressive gallopers in this field, he's giving every impression this campaign that 1400m-1600m will be ideal.


Spring Racing Carnival at Morphettville - Oct. 9 - Nov 6 Handicap (Race 5)


Morphettville Favourite - Race 5 No. 2 Another Award

This half-sister to dual Group winning stable mate Tequila hasn't exactly been a perennial winner with two victories from 11 starts, but it's hard to knock her honesty and to be fair, she's has been contesting much stronger races than this.

Importantly, both of her career wins have come first-up, with a fresh 1000m triumph last winter before finishing a length off subsequent Group One winner Instant Celebrity two starts later, while her latest came in January when sprinting quickly off a slow tempo.

That short and sharp sprint is always a big advantage on the Parks circuit over these five-furlong dashes and giving only 2kg to second favourite Miss Mucinni, who has been disappointing this prep, she is very well placed, bringing easily the form lines overall.


Terry Howe Printing Handicap Tips (Race 6)


Morphettville Best Bet - Race 6 No. 2 Vongole

Skipping a 50k race at Pakenham on Friday to cross the border with this resuming gelding is Enver Jusufovic, a trainer that generally has his runners firing early in their campaigns, which a 19% first-up career strike rate (13% ROI) does support.

Vongole is no exception, a lightly raced six-year-old who has a win and two seconds from three first-up attempts, but you could easily add another, with his victory in March last year coming off a near eight-week gap and his five subsequent runs have all been in town.

Consistent in three BM78 outings before falling away late autumn, this gelding has been terrific in two jump outs ahead of this return and with the favourite So You Can a little plain in a recent trial when outsprinted by a stayer, this does look very winnable.


Nigel Latham Memorial Handicap (Race 9)


Morphettville Value Bet - Race 9 No. 13 Aadelad

This veteran proved the first-up effort at 30/1 was no fluke when saluting second-up with a rise in grade and despite having the rating to contest easier races and perhaps get over further, the Francis & Kent yard have him firing at present with the same routine.

That pattern has been keeping Aadelad to these five-furlong sprints and mostly on the fresh side with low weights, while following that win over Extra Mile (won two of his next three), he's strung together consecutive placings, albeit he didn't relish a Heavy 10 surface last time.

Receiving some interference in the run home two starts back, but picking up late to finish just off Brimarvi Vehero (a $6 chance here), the eight-year-old arrives off another little freshen-up and even with the wide alley, he has to be a chance here off current form.

Verdict
