Morphettville Tips May 21


Race 1 - 11:32AM Rexel Handicap Tips (2015m)


Selections: 5,1,8,2.

5. DOES IT is becoming a consistent campaigner for the Richard & Chantelle Jolly yard and has taken it up a few notches this time in. He now carries weight at this level, albeit the drop in grade is still a positive, coming back from a third in the Port Adelaide Cup on a tough meeting to make ground on. He is very deep into this prep, though.

1. Not Usual Glorious bounced back second-up and while blessed here in that May 7 triumph, he's held winning form previously. He carries an extra 3kg third-up.

8. Medieval Miss was only there for a run with 59.5kg at Caulfield, but has prevailed in two of her last three Adelaide visits.

2. Dexter You Devil looked plain last start, but was back in an on-speed dominated race. The blinkers go on.

Race 2 - 12:07PM Thomas Farms Handicap Tips (1050m)


Selections: 11,4,5,7.

11. EXTREMELY LUCKY is one of the more progressive sprinters in SA and could be contesting The Goodwood in 12 months time. Tipped out after a brilliant debut win, he was a good thing beaten fresh and then encountered a walkathon via the Euclase, a race that was gift wrapped for Seradess. He should get his consolation victory here.

4. Full Probe was visually a little plain fresh, albeit the query there was always the 1000m and while he faces similar journey here, the maps is kinder in this smaller field and he strips fitter. He should improve.

5. Magic Max recorded a brilliant return win and after a luckless Caulfield attempt, has been ordinary in two subsequent outings. He may need a colder ride.

7. Secret War was entitled to knock up fresh after being taken on and should find the front here. Perhaps the blowout ($21.00 @ bet365).


Race 3 - 12:42PM Carbine Club Of South Australia Inc. Tips (1200m)


Selections: 13,12,11,2.

13. JEAN VALJEAN has always shown city class potential, having been spelled after an arrogant maiden victory at start three and first-up at Gawler, it was a messy watch when originally losing touch with them and then checked when picking up late. He covered ground when well beaten last start, but can be a big improver from a low draw.

12. Three Tears is the obvious, having just missed I Am Bene who looks stakes class and subsequent winner Rushaway Lad was produced from that May 7 affair. The prior form lines were a little iffy, however.

11. De Thorn looks a forgotten runner in early markets ($57.00 @ BoomBet). After winning his maiden at 150/1, he found the line nicely at starts three and four in that first prep.

2. So You Can is much more capable than BM64 company, but has needed the run via his last two fresh tilts.

Race 4 - 1:17PM David Coles AM Stakes Tips (1200m)


Selections: 4,3,11,12.

4. SEE YOU IN HEAVEN has won three of four, including back-to-back wins via her last two following an underwhelming return. She ticked the 1200m in the Breeders' Stakes when showing a turn-of-foot, with the talented Sires' Produce winner Twin Stars rattling home for second. Is an odds-on fav and she picks herself here.

3. Abrupt is one of two Victorian first starters and from his summer jump-out's, has improved into the autumn and had more to give in a recent Flemington win. This is Robbie Downey's one ride on the card.

11. As Time Goes By is by Deep Impact and out of a dual Group winning mare A Time For Julia. A big filly from the Freedman yard, I wonder if 1200m is a little short.

12. Grey River beat a metro winner in a trial before finding the line well on debut. The extra 200m suits and she's huge odds ($91.00 @ Neds).

Race 5 - 1:52PM Dominant Centaurea Stakes Tips (2015m)


Selections: 2,4,3,9.

2. LA DRAGONTEA was a runner highlighted ahead of the Queen of the South, a Group 2 winning/Group 1 placed mare in Canada and US. In that Australian debut over 1600m, she travelled beautifully and while looking the winner on the bend, the wide run told and fitness gave out. Jamie Kah sticks and she should have improvement.

4. Foxy Frida heads the betting following her luckless second in that Queen of the South, when inconvenienced early in the run home. Classy, but gets back and hasn't won past 1600m, so there's a few queries.

3. Starelle has a terrible winning strike rate, but prior to her second-up run, had placed in her last four starts at group level, including a 2000m third over the spring.

9. Deny Knowledge stepped to 1600m third-up and kicked late to score a brave win at Caulfield. Will she run out 2000m?


Race 6 - 2:27PM SA Fillies Classic Tips (2500m)


Selections: 8,5,1,10.

8. MORRISSETTE was competitive on a VRC Oaks path and then won her maiden first-up in March despite a wide run. Second-up in the Auraria, she only got warm late after being held-up and in the Australasian Oaks, was honest in a midfield finish, albeit a little one-paced. Blinkers go on and I suspect this has been the target all prep.

5. The Amazonian put the writing on the wall second-up at Caulfield with a runner-up over 2000m and beat Yaphet in the process, who was second in last Saturday's SA Derby. That's good form for a filly's race.

1. Douceur had her chance in the Australasian Oaks, although it was still a solid run and pulled up lame the start prior. Narrowly beaten in the VRC Oaks over this trip.

10. Prefer Us could well be the pick of the locals at longer odds ($35.00 @ BoomBet). She'll stay all day and should've won again third-up.


Race 7 - 3:07PM RA Lee Stakes Tips (1600m)


Selections: 7,4,1,5.

7. DALASAN hasn't won for over two years, but has placed in four of 17 Group 1 attempts since taking out the 2020 Chairman's & reunites with Jason 'Stubby' Holder, who has been on for his last two wins. Competitive in the Sydney Autumn, this is a huge drop in grade and he's well weighted under the set weight + penalties conditions.

4. Royal Mile was building well without luck before an April 30 flop, where he was again ridden way too cold. At his peak, he was a genuine galloper that could sit on the speed and sustain a run. Winkers go on.

1. So Si Bon fell just short of a VOBIS Gold Mile hat-trick second-up at Caulfield and the veteran still has plenty of zest for racing. This is about his level these days.

5. Struck By won the Morphettville Guineas over this track/trip last autumn and wasn't disgraced last start. He may lead.

Race 8 - 3:47PM The Furphy Goodwood Tips (1200m)


Selections: 4,2,14,11.

4. THE INFERNO is set for a peak performance over 1200m and off what will be a fast run six furlongs. Mark Zahra will just need a pinch of luck in transit to be in the finish. The DC McKay is generally a strong Goodwood reference (produced three of the last four winners) and the ex-Singapore champion has recorded the run of that event.

2. Savatoxl didn't defend his DC McKay Stakes title, but was only pipped in the last stride and was taken on early there. Aiming for back-to-back Goodwood victories. he arrives here third-up and is now back in form.

14. Outlaws Revenge is bolters odds ($81.00 @ BetDeluxe), but after a slow start to the campaign and then an improved second-up showing, he is well on track for a career best showing.

21. Manhattan Times has been unsuited in slow run races, but gets a fast sprint now and could really produce off this set-up.


Race 9 - 4:25PM Proud Miss Stakes Tips (1200m)


Selections: 14,5,1,3.

14. I AM BENE faces a massive class rise, but versus mostly out of form Victorian turn-takers, it's not a strong edition of the Proud Miss and this is an exciting filly. Spelled after running good time on debut, she was ridden to an on-speed bias fresh and was vulnerable in that return, so the win had more merit than the margin suggests.

5. Miss Albania comes out the DC McKay and was an unlucky runner in that key Goodwood lead-up, when held-up on the rails until the 100m. Is now back against her own sex and Jamie Kah takes the reins.

1. Seradess defeated handy males in the Euclase when leading and this a little easier. She was gifted that on a platter and this a very different set-up on the map.

3. Another Award was honest in the Group 1 Sangster, which followed back-to-back wins. Was that an end of prep run?

Verdict

Dalasan (Race 7) gets a perfect opportunity to record an overdue win, while La Dragontea (Race 5) is open to improvement off a good Australian debut.

The Inferno (Race 7) is a great each-way price in The Goodwood, with Jean Valjean (Race 3) is another chance at decent odds.
