Morphettville Tips April 20


Triple M Handicap Tips (Race 1)


Morphettville Favourite - Race 1 No. 9 Runaway Belle

She was stakes placed as a two-year-old, although Runaway Belle had to wait another 12 months before breaking through and she brought up win number two first-up this prep.

The daughter of Pariah has held form in two subsequent runs, with the mare catching the eye in a strong Class 2 second-up before a fourth-place finish when stepping up to 1200m.

While she was honest behind a flying Delightful Shecky, six furlongs does see Runaway Belle out and back to 1000m, she's dangerous here down in the weights from a soft draw.

Winning Edge Presentations Handicap Tips (Race 3)


Morphettville Best Bet - Race 3 No. 13 A Samurai Mind

I've got plenty time for A Samurai Mind, a talented three-year-old who looks one of the leading local hopes for the South Australian Derby and he's suited out 1950m here.

A galloper who freshened right up after an impressive debut win, A Samurai Mind lacked a turn-of-foot in the Adelaide Guines fresh, but he picked up again late in that feature.

That winner (Air Assault) has won his next two and with a confidence booster completed last start, the son of Shamus Award looks ready to make a statement against older rivals.

Murray & Barb Stewart's 66th Anniversary Tips (Race 7)


Morphettville Roughie - Race 7 No. 10 Bellavardo

She will improve from this second-up showing, especially once the distances increase, however, Bellavardo ran a cracking race first-up at Oakbank over 1400m.

Her work through the line was particularly impressive in that fresh effort and along with technically being a little easier at BM68 level, the extra 150m is another positive second-up.

They should run along in this contest, especially with many of the speed influences drawn out and with a suck run through late, Bellavardo makes some each-way appeal at big odds.

H C Nitschke Stakes Tips (Race 8)


Morphettville Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 6 Material Dreams

This is very good placement from Victorian trainer Nick Ryan, who is aiming to get a black-type win for this three-year-old and the filly should be right at her peak for this Listed tilt.

Material Dreams has performed well in Melbourne stakes races and she was unlucky in the latest of those when back/held-up via the Group 3 Typhoon Tracy Stakes at The Valley.

Now with two runs completed following a freshen-up, she's ready for the return to 1400m and with an economical run in transit from barrier three, she should get her chance.

Sportsbet Adelaide Carnival Handicap Tips (Race 10)


Morphettville Value Bet - Race 10 No. 4 Anjopin

I'm always prepared to forgive Oakbank form, as it's a horses for courses circuit that many gallopers don't handle and this gelding still managed a midfield effort on that track.

The form that does stand out for a BM68 was his performance two starts back at Listed level, where Anjopin got home with the fastest last 200m of the Manihi Classic.

Had he arrived to this event off that stakes attempt, then Anjopin is probably a $5-$6 chance in this and while he has 61kg to carry here, barrier five will help offset that impost.
