Morphettville Tips April 30

Race 1 - 11:52AM G.H. Mumm Handicap Tips (1400m)

Selections: 1,8,11,5.

1. YULONG PATROL wasn't well ridden at Sale last start in a slightly strongly affair than this, yet got off heels late and found the line nicely. A galloper that generally settles handier, he was a third-up winner in April and off his recent outings, is quite well in here with 59kg after the claim. Is a good each-way chance in a competitive opener.

8. Blood Sweat Tears is an ex-Maher & Eustace runner that will find it much easier in SA.  Wasn't knocked about in a trial behind Morvada, who was preparing for a stakes race and he'll do no work under Vorster.

11. Mr Metrics should be the best from this in time, a three-year-old who went 2/2 in style before getting blown away by Defining. Was that an end of prep run?

5. Going Gaga improved second-up and has won stronger races than this on the Parks circuit. Big price ($35.00 @ BoomBet) in a BM68.

Race 2 - 12:27PM PFD Foods Handicap Tips (1250m)

Selections: 8,10,11,3.

8. SHE'S A TOFF goes 1100m to 1250m, which is a query for the first time, but should get a soft lead and ran fair time in a first-up Oakbank win. This mare was returning from almost a year off, having won a maiden in May, 2021 and that followed a debut where only race experience cost her. She has less convictions than most of this field.

10. Last Girl Love pulled up lame at listed level last start and is well back in grade with Jamie Kah on, who has gate one at her disposal. Always shown talent and certainly respecting if the market warms to her late.

11. L'il Piper was only beaten a pimple in this grade last start, albeit there's a little more depth to this line-up. Racing well though and the extra 150m suits now.

3. Outpost has been poor lately, but plummets in grade and third-up last spring was the start of a winning hat-trick.

Race 3 - 1:02PM Thomas Farms Handicap Tips (1000m)

Selections: 2,5,9,3.

2. HEKA EXPRESS was beaten two lengths fresh in a listed event, a race that included Shamino, Lombardo and Dexelation; sprinters that would give this field a galloping lesson. Drawn out, but will settle off a good speed and won a stronger race over this track/trip in Dec. Many don't handle Oakbank, so forgiving the recent flop.

5. Meteorite was a spruik horse for McEvoy and now has his first start for Will Clarken, who has a great record with tried horses. Won a lead-up trial easily, albeit it was an average heat, so maybe flattered.

9. Full Probe is a genuine on-pacer that has as much upside as anything here and has quickly worked through the grades. Is the five furlongs too sharp first-up?

3. Irish Mint isn't getting any younger, but has found form for the new yard and has a great record over this track/trip.

Race 4 - 1:37PM HC Nitschke Stakes Tips (1400m)

Selections: 2,10,1,3.

2. ILLATION went more than seven lengths faster overall than the filly's maiden at Pakenham on April 14, working through his gears stylishly on debut and maps for the same run here for Zahra. There's no depth to this listed affair and the younger brother to Group 1 winner Inference can start building his stallion resume at start two.

10. Defining Improved over more ground following an 1100m return, with 9.7 lengths the combined margin of her last two victories. Lacks tactical speed, so will need luck in transit, but she has a big turn-of-foot.

1. Hopon Harry arguably should've beaten Mac 'N' Cheese fresh and while disappointing second/third-up, he gets Damien Oliver on and meets Defining 2kg better off.

3. Knightstown found our blackbook second-up then was unsuited to 1100m. Looking for 1400m and maybe the blowout ($81.00 @ Neds).

Race 5 - 2:12PM Breeders' Stakes Tips (1200m)

Selections: 2,5,1,7.

2. EYE OF THE EAGLE briefly loomed as the winner on debut at Caulfield, but the race experience of Cannonball told late, a professional two-year-old that was beaten only a length behind a smart Sejardan in spring. That form should be stacking up in Adelaide and with natural improvement a start two, he's a key chance in an open race.

5. See You In Heaven won on VRC Oaks day up the straight and after somewhat of a plain autumn return, she recorded slick sectionals via a second-up win. 1200m is fine off that run and she can settle forward or back.

1. Twin Stars was a debut winner in March, defeating All Sassed Up, who is stakes placed in Melbourne. Lead-up trial was workmanlike, albeit it should bring him on.

7. Hope At Hand brings suspect form, but improved nicely at start two after doing plenty wrong on debut. Has ability.

Race 6 - 2:52PM Chairman's Stakes Tips (2000m)

Selections: 3,4,5,1.

3. JUNGLE MAGNATE won the Mornington Guineas fresh on protest and second-up, wasn't suited staying at the mile where his work late was quite good considering, while Damien Oliver takes back the reins. With a 5kg swing on Son Of Emperor from Caulfield, who did have every favour there, there's a decent price discrepancy this time.

4. Harleymoven will run as easily the top local seed for the SA Derby should he complete the hat-trick on Saturday. Made light work of Daisies on April 9 and he's versatile, so Ryan Hurdle has options early.

5. Son Of Emperor rolls forward under Kah and although has no turn-of-foot, will be suited bowling along over 2000m. Just feel he's a little short off that Caulfield run.

1. Teewater was against older rivals in the Easter Cup and placed in his own age versus Hitotsu and Alegron over spring.

Race 7 - 3:32PM Grand Syndicates Australasian Oaks Tips (2000m)

Selections: 10,8,6,16.

10. GLINT OF HOPE was runner-up to Daisies at her fourth run in her first prep and was spotting 4.5kg to My Whisper via a narrow Sandown defeat second-up this time in, so at level weights and with a further run, this is her chance to turn the tables on the fav. Set to peak at 2000m in the Australasian Oaks, she just needs a cleaner jump.

8. Mamounia won the Galilee Final, albeit did lay-in under pressure. That was her first time racing anti-clockwise, so there's improvement to come, with the wide gate here the main negative for this Godolphin filly.

6. My Whisper appeared less dynamic in Melbourne, but the daughter of Frankel relished the 1800m of the Auraria, which is the main lead-up for this Group 1.

16. Morrissette is an outsider ($47.00 @ BoomBet), a filly who only got warm late in the Auraria Stakes and her spring form was quite strong.

Race 8 - 4:07PM City Of Adelaide Handicap Tips (1400m)

Selections: 5,3,4,1.

5. ROYAL MILE is a talented four-year-old that is having his runs spaced this prep after a below-par effort to finish 2021. A brilliant winner of the Port Adelaide Guineas and Chairman's Stakes over last year's carnival, he's equally adept over shorter trips and has been luckless this year. Jacob Opperman needs to be more positive third-up.

Grand old campaigner 3. Morvada is racing as consistently as ever and Jamie Kah takes Saturday's engagement. Hard fit, goes forward and the Parks 1400m is his pet track/trip. He should be in this for a long way.

4. Countofmontecristo is an ex-Singapore runner that was stakes class when returning for Kris Lees, albeit was hit or miss. This is the weakest race he's seen in Australia.

1400m will test 1. Sansom with 60kg, but the last effort was brave and he'll get a soft run. One for the exotics at a price ($21.00 @ BetRight).

Race 9 - 4:40PM James Squire Handicap Tips (1300m)

Selections: 7,5,4,3.

7. MY BOY BIRMINGHAM won four races in his first campaign and although failed at Flemington, he was at the end of his prep. The bold front-runner beat some useful types at BM70 level in Victoria and has warmed up for this with two solid jump outs. Jamie Kah on for her old boss Tony McEvoy, this is the one to catch in the last.

5. Arkham Knight is ready to win and the blinkers go back on after a narrow third-up defeat. That Morvada and Zoist form reads superbly for this grade, albeit he always needs luck with a negative racing pattern.

4. Left Hand Man stuck on first-up over 1200m and is better placed to 1300m now, where he'll do no work from a low draw with the 3kg claim. Perhaps still a run short.

3. Extra Time drops in grade off two listed runs and was winning these races last prep. Can settle closer from a good draw.
