Morphettville Tips 10/09/2022   


Race 2 No. 7 RODEO – ($3.80)

Nicola Yuen ensured RODEO was given a fair dinkum jump prior to resumption when last in work. He did enough to beat a quality field in that jump out before having Callan Murray taking care of his race-day riding. The pair jumped cleanly off the inside on the bigger Morphettville track to box-seat behind the leader and stablemate Daring Move. The two in front found a kick with Murray hard at work on his horse who was slowly starting to respond. Rodeo had to dig deep to nose out the tough Calla Dream back to his inside while also holding off a storming Libiamo to his outer. Tipped out following that run and has since trialed in a relaxed manner under stable rider Jake Toeroek. 



Race 7 No. 2 ARKHAM KNIGHT – ($23)

Trainer John Macmillian does like to play around with the head gear of his evergreen 9yo ARKHAM KNIGHT. He came back in a sprightly manner this prep, winning first-up over five furlongs with the blinkers on in Murray Bridge. They hadn’t gone hard, and Arkham Knight appreciated the room to move outside of horses on the bigger Gifford Hill track. Doesn’t get that today, though does find a claim for low-flying apprentice Ellis Wong. He also gets the blinkers off while up in trip after not finishing off when second-up last start. Can forgive that run and he did split Zoist and Morvada over seven furlongs when the blinkers last came off.



Race 9 No. 4 SEA WITNESS – ($11)

Appearing first-up as the only speed on paper, Sea Witness ran along as expected in Murray Bridge. He often takes a run or two to come into his prep and he just felt the pinch late. The strong 5yo often trials well prior to resumption and he arguably trialed the best he ever has when finishing ahead of a Listed class field. There does not appear to be a great deal of early speed engaged again here. Lizzie Annells won’t mind being drawn out around the middle in the last either. If she can hold him together on turning, then Sea Witness might find that winning kick on straightening.
