Morphettville Parks Tips 11/11/2023
BEST BET 🏆
Race 2 No. 3 TRUMPSTA – ($8)
Track and distance specialist TRUMPSTA found plenty of favours to win at his fourth run back. They didn’t go overly hard with Sheridan Clarke producing the ride of the day for Phillip Stokes when settling behind the speed. She needed an out as the field began to pack approaching the turn. Clarke found her run back to the inside nearing the 300m with Trumpsta sprinting sharply along the fence. Clarke and Trumpsta set out after Grand Pierro who had gone to the front on straightening, and those two horses put a space on the others inside the furlong. Comes back in grade while staying to track and trip and team Stokes will only need to keep him ticking over at this stage of the prep.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 7 No. 11 APACHE STAR – ($13)
Had the opening market not allowed us to be on Hit The Slopes as our best bet then we would have been more than comfortable siding with JUST JOKING. This horse bucked the pattern of the day when Jason Holder plotted a path from a back position to score first-up on Balaklava Cup Day. Just Joking was a surprise winner, paying as much as $41 when breaking his maiden status that day. That race has been a good form reference with four mins wins coming from that field. Probably should’ve run third at his next start when racing in restricted room in another good form race behind Mavette at Murray Bridge. Pay to forgive when caught three wide towards the back of the field against the pattern in his latest effort over a mile at Balaklava.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 8 No. 4 NASHO – ($8)
We’ll have to take one of these near-even-money favourites on as we look for our roughie Value Bet. We’ll put a target onto the back of talented filly Lovely Lookin’ as she comes back from a tough run over 1400m at Caulfield. Thought NASHO looked a solid bet at Gawler and the market agreed, sending him around as an even-money winner of his 1100m maiden. Nasho showed plenty of pace to sit outside of eventual winner Kinetic Jewel first-up with those two coming away from the rest. Happy to have seen Nasho take a position behind the pace last start before running the 1100m right out. Justin Potter can again give Nasho the gun-run in behind the pace once again.
