Check back on Thursday to see our updated best bets.

Previous Morphettville Tips:


July 6

Race 1 - 12:01PM MARK HALL'S MEMORIAL HANDICAP (1800 METRES)
This race looks tailor made for BLING DYNASTY and he should simply be winning. His benchmark (BM) figure of 11 length above BM over 1800m at Flemington three starts back is far superior to Saturday’s rivals, and he also ticks other boxes. He then went to Casterton where they went 13 lengths below BM to the 600m, and while he ground it out for a credible 3rd placing over 2000m, it was nearly impossible to get past those in front of him after the slow early pace. Last start over 2050m at Morphettville, he came from just off the pace and mowed down the tearaway leader Brown Ben, but in turn, Blind Dynasty was claimed in the last strides by Bea Tempted who had strong Sandown form with a win over No Money No Honey and Tata da Goose. Bling Dynasty now drop back to the distance he ran a PB, and at his sixth run this time in, he should be at peak fitness.
Result (3rd)

Race 4 - 1:51PM AAMI HANDICAP (2000 METRES)
KING RED is low-level flying in Adelaide and he looks to back up here following another super-impressive victory at Gawler on Wednesday. He’s won all four runs this time in and Wednesday’s effort was a 12-length thrashing. Admittedly, his BM figures don’t rate as well as some of his rivals, but he has the speed to lead this field and is yet to really be tested this time in. This is the acid test and he deserves his shot in the city.
Result (unplaced)


June 29


Race 1 - 12:01PM AAMI HANDICAP (1250 METRES)
Richard Lamming send HARD PRESS to Adelaide following an impressive debut performance over 1000m where he had no luck and was caught five and six wide without cover for the trip yet still managed to run the quickest 600m, 400m and 200m of the entire meeting at Sale. They went 10 lengths below benchmark (BM) to the 600 which gave front runners the advantage, but Hard Press’ overall BM figures of 1.6 lengths below BM are three lengths superior to what any of his rivals have done, and he did it tough. Second-up improvement is expected, leading rider Raquel Clark take the ride, and I’d expect Hard Press to be too good for these. 
Result (Won - $1.50)

Race 2 - 12:36PM HUGHES LIMOUSINES HANDICAP (1550 METRES)
DEBT COLLECTOR has been costly for punters but has had excuses. His last start at Flemington was a clear personal best as he went 11.3 lengths above BM and was flying later over 1400m behind Bad Wolf. His last start figures are more than five lengths superior to his rivals best, and with five runs under his belt this time in, there’s no better time to step him up to 1550m which it appears he’s looking for. He beat home Five Kingdom last start and that galloper finished 2.4 lengths from Com On Carl in a 1600m BM90 at Flemington last Saturday so the form looks good. 
Result (3rd - $1.20 place)

Race 4 - 1:46PM HEINEKEN 3 HANDICAP (2400 METRES)
I’m keen to take on Super Swoop who has won three in row but faces an entirely different beast stepping up to 2400m and jumping from BM70 grade to a BM80 against rock-hard-fit stayers. My favourite mare, MELI MELO, is just so honest and I think she can turn the tables on Sasko who defeated her last start with 2kg less. There’s only one kilogram separating them this time which equates to something over the staying trip, but it’s the timing of Meli Melo that is most important. She was coming off a four-week break and may have been a bit vulnerable late, and last time she came off a four-week break, she finished 3rd going 1.7 lengths below BM before spiking next start and winning at Oakbank where she went 12.9 lengths above BM. She ran 0.2 of a length below BM last start at her first attempt on Heavy ground, and I’m expecting another spike performance on Saturday as she gets back to a more suitable Soft track.
Result (3rd - $1.85 place)

June 22


Race 3 - 1:11PM EDDY NUNN'S 60TH HANDICAP (1050 METRES)
The form around TERRIFYING’s last win has been franked with the 2nd placed Miss Scalini finishing runner-up again, and the 4th placed Starspangledmagic winning next start at Ballarat. She now needs to take that synthetic form to the turf track at Morphettville, but she’ll be up on the speed making her own luck and is fit enough to tough it out again and fend them off.
Result (scratched)

Race 4 - 1:51PM AAMI HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
TEQUILA TIME turned his form around after two disappointing runs with a 2nd placing in a strong rating race. First-up he went a shocking 22 lengths below benchmark (BM) before improving at Flemington where he went 1.8 lengths below BM. He sat just off the pace last start but was pressured to protect the inside on the bend and probably went a bit early as he went 5.7 lengths above BM and was nailed late by Cashed. He won the Group 2 Sires’ Produce (1400m) at Morphettville when fourth-up last campaign, and he now steps up from 1000m to 1200m at his fourth run this time in. Looks well placed from the inside gate and is ready to peak. 
Result (2nd)

Race 8 - 4:30PM TAB HANDICAP (1200 METRES)
MYSTIFIED comes out of the Cashed and Tequila Time race and finished a very credible 3rd. After looking at his lacklustre barrier trials, I was keen to steer clear of Mystified first-up, but he ran above expectation going 3.7 lengths above BM. This ultra-consistent daughter of Wanted has posted positive BM figures at her past eight starts, and she also improves second-up which makes her appeal on Saturday.
Result (unplaced)
