Morphettville Tips May 18


Sportsbet Fast Form Handicap Tips (Race 2)


Morphettville Roughie - Race 2 No. 2 Test The Law

The son of All Too Hard demonstrated good form earlier this season including when winning in an 1800m Benchmark 78 handicap here in December.

The pick came home over a length clear of his five rivals when racing on a good track that day and similar underfoot conditions are expected here.

The four-year-old went on to deliver a three-length success in a 2112m Benchmark 76 handicap held at Gawler two starts later. 

The selection was spelled following a good third over 2050m at Strathalbyn at the start of February however he failed to shine at this track first up this prep.

The gelding jumped from a wide barrier when racing over an inadequate 1250m on that occasion.

Matthew Seyers’ representative has an inside alley here and stepping up to 1550m may prove up to delivering a surprise win having won second up in the past. 

PFD Food Services Handicap Tips (Race 4)


Morphettville Value Bet - Race 4 No. 3 Sioux Warrior

John MacMillan’s gelding registered some good placed efforts earlier this prep including when narrowly beaten into second in a 900m maiden at Murray Bridge in early February.

However, the gelding has shown improved form since being freshened however and he has won his last two starts. 

The first of those wins saw the three-year-old come home two lengths clear of his rivals when taking an eleven-runner Balaklava maiden held over 1050m last month.

The selection went on to complete a double when successful by half-a-length when racing on a soft 5 track at Gawler ten days ago. 

The son of Sioux Nation jumped had to challenge wide around the final turn when successful at Gawler and he will be jump from an inside barrier here. 

While the pick steps up to metro-level racing here he remains open to improvement and looks value to complete a hat-trick with the trip and underfoot conditions to suit. 

Sportsbet Nobody Does It Easier Handicap Tips (Race 5)


Morphettville Best Bet - Race 5 No. 1 Sir Kingsford

The four-year-old has been in great form this season winning five times so far with the first of those victories coming over 1500m at Gawler in October.

The pick came home in front in a Benchmark 56 handicap and has risen through the ranks since then with all four subsequent victories coming at this track.

The third of those wins came on the Parks layout in use here with the gelding coming home over four lengths clear of his rivals in a 1550m Benchmark 68 handicap.

The son of Sir Prancealot jumped from a wide barrier that day and will do once more here having registered a win over 1800m here earlier this month.

The selection defied top weight when winning by half-a-length that day and will again have to concede weight to all of his rivals.

The gelding often front runs however he has won when ridden with more restraint in the past and looks capable of saluting under regular rider Kayla Crowther.  

Sportsbet Handicap Tips (Race 7)


Morphettville Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 4 Lonrodex

The five-year-old has shown a liking for this track in the past including when registering a victory by over a length in a Benchmark 74 handicap here in March.

That success came when racing over this distance and he went on to place second in an 1100m Listed event at Oakbank at the end of that month.

The pick was beaten half-a-length when contesting the Railway Stakes held on a good 4 track that day with that race producing a number of subsequent winners.

While the selection failed to make an impact last time out it’s notable that he jumped at big odds for the Group 3 R N Irwin Stakes over 1100m won by subsequent Group 1 winner Benedetta. 

The drop in grade here is a positive while barrier two is a further positive having jumped from next to the rail when winning here three starts back.

Sarah Rutten’s gelding has forecast underfoot conditions to suit and he looks capable of returning to winning ways.
