Murray Bridge Tips May 5

Happy 60th Donnie Amess Distance Maiden Plate Tips (Race 3)

Murray Bridge Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 1 Gimme A Reason

A galloper that just wasn't quite up to it in Victoria, but now getting over these middle distance journeys in South Australia, he should be able to win races for the Kirsten Mooney stable.

Not much has gone the way of this five-year-old in three efforts this year, held-up when resuming albeit found the 1300m too sharp before his first performance for the new yard when caught on the worst part of the track at Oakbank behind Reynolds, who has since won again.

Gimme A Reason sustained a wide run over the mile at Murray Bridge on April 21 when only beaten in the last stride and on Wednesday from barrier one, can get much more economical time in transit under Jason Holder.

Beachy's Mannum Hotel Benchmark 58 Handicap Tips (Apprentice Riders Only) (Race 6)

Murray Bridge Best Bet - Race 6 No. 1 Exalted Beast

While the Grant Young stable isn't necessarily the easiest one to catch, with the short back-up and big drop in grade, this gelding does fit the mould of many successful prior patterns that this yard has produced.

In just his second racing preparation in which he's managed to record three wins, Exalted Beast is clearly no slouch, prevailing in Maiden/Class 1 company on February 28 before going back-to-back on a BM68 in town, defeating Dreamed and Canford in the process, two subsequent city winners.

Off her performance two starts back at Listed level, Biarchi would obviously be a big threat here but she was poor following that and the recent trial was only fair, which gives us more confidence with this four-year-old, especially from barrier three.

FibreTrack Benchmark 54 Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Murray Bridge Value Bet - Race 8 No. 4 Power Glen

This rising ten-year-old was a useful galloper in his younger days as a fringe Saturday class runner in 2017 before a big setback put him out of action for nearly two years, and was tipped out after solitary outings in both 2019 and 2020.

Although well held in four performances to begin this campaign, they've finally been able to get racing into Power Glen who has improved via his last two outings, catching the eye for second in a fast run mile last start where he was spotting 7kg to the winner.

Prior to that attempt, he was on heels late at Penola and should've at least placed in that April 4 contest while here in the same Benchmark, is an each-way hope off those most recent runs, albeit needs a pinch of luck from a wide draw.
