Murray Bridge Tips August 23


Events @ Bridges Event Centre Maiden Plate Tips (Race 2)


Murray Bridge Best Bet - Race 2 No. 12 Ladymeansbusiness

The three-year-old failed to shine in two barrier trials, however, she took a marked step forward when making her racecourse debut over this course and distance earlier this month.

Racing behind the speed on that occasion, Ladymeansbusiness was beaten less than three-and-a-half-lengths into third with one of her rivals here Enciphering in behind.

While that rival didn’t appear to run her race that day, it was a highly promising debut from the filly on similar going to what is expected here.

Trainer Michal Hickmott is in good form, with the handler boasting a 50% strike rate (6/12) with his runners this season and those winners include a double last Saturday. 

The booking of top New Zealand apprentice Kelsey Hannan is a further positive and she can steer the daughter of Lean Mean Machine to victory. 


Spry Civil Construction Fillies & Mares Maiden Plate Tips (Race 4)


Murray Bridge Next Best Bet - Race 4 No. 10 Pricilla’s Choice

The daughter of Warrior’s Reward performed well in her sole trial effort, finishing runner-up in a four-runner 1000m contest at Strathalbyn last October.

Pricilla's Choice has subsequently been beaten a maximum of two lengths in two starts to date, including when a length third in a Metro contest at Morphettville earlier this month.

The daughter of Warrior’s Reward jumped at odds of $41 on that occasion and shaped as if she would appreciate the extra distance she tackles here.

The wet track here should prove no issue, with the mare having encountered wet tracks on both previous starts while a good alley six off the rail is a further positive. 

Trained by Roslyn Day, she gets a drop in grade here and is expected to salute for the first time at the third time of asking.


Fred Vella Tyre & Crash Repair Benchmark 60 Handicap Tips (Race 6)


Murray Bridge Roughie - Race 6 No. 6 Road To Blue Sky

While the veteran has placed just once from five starts at this venue, it’s notable that those efforts have come this prep and in stronger contests than he tackles here.

The most recent of those efforts saw the gelding beaten nearly eight-and-a-half-lengths into sixth via a 2500m Benchmark on a Soft 5 in August.

Before that, Road To Blue Sky had recorded his second career success in delivering a narrow margin victory in a 2100m Class 1 set weights affair at Gawler.

Both of those efforts came on a Soft 5 surface, the same conditions expected here and the gelding finishing strongly in that Gawler event.

The drop back to 2000m should be fine and that combined with the drop in grade makes him a decent value chance on Wednesday.


Northpoint Murraylands Rating 0-58 Handicap Tips (Race 8)


Murray Bridge Value Bet - Race 8 No. 8 Seafaring

The gelding is a regular at this venue, having made eleven starts here in a 31-race career to date, with those efforts including a third-place finish in a Benchmark 68 over 1800m earlier this year.

Seafaring has been out of form in the main since that effort. including when twelfth over this distance in a Benchmark 68 handicap here at the start of last month. 

While he faded, having raced from the front in each of his last two starts, he was only overhauled late on when fourth over 2000m here three starts back.

Freshened since his latest effort, the six-year-old may get loose on the front end here and there aren't many chasers.

The son of Ocean Park may prove up to springing a shock under Samuel Payne, who will look to cross early from a wide alley.
