Morphettville Tips 14/10/2023 

BEST BET 🏆   

Race 9 No. 5 ALPINE FLYER – ($4.60) 

Murray Bridge trainer Michael Hickmott prepared ALPINE FLYER to win her first two starts this prep. Those races seemed to be over a distance short of her best and yet Alpine Flyer won both with a bit in hand. She was no match for her stable mate Lord Vladivostok as Hickmott gave her another run over a sprint trip before accepting in the Listed Balaklava Cup over 1600 metres. The winners were mostly coming from on the speed that day and Kelsey Hannan duly fired Alpine Flyer up to sit on top of a good speed. This tactic was against her usual pattern somewhat and the mare ran a brave race in finishing behind the placegetters. Should be the testing material while coming back to 1500 metres in benchmark grade on Saturday.


   

NEXT BEST 🥈   

Race 8 No. 3 FEARENTLESS – ($3.35) 

The Victorian stayers are often hard to beat when they come to Adelaide, as witnessed recently when the lightly raced visitor Insulation beat some of SA’s finest over 1950 metres. That horse has since come out to run another good race at Flemington, this time running second over this trip to FEARENTLESS. Insulation had his chance as he followed the victor throughout into the run. Fearentless hit the front a long way from home and seemed vulnerable as Insulation attempted to range alongside nearing the furlong. The tough mare dug deep though and drew clear again to grind out a gutsy win. Stays to trip and looks well placed back to Adelaide grade as the current No.1 local rider Jake Toeroek gets on board.

  

BEST VALUE 💰   

Race 4 No. 1 JENKINS – ($8.50)

Pakenham trainer Phillip Stokes sent JENKINS over to the Morphettville stables last prep where the horse ran a massive race first-up. We were keen to follow up with him as he resumed over 1200 metres on the outer track this prep. Jenkins found himself back the fence as expected before grinding home okay. He was only beaten just over a length in the run by Saturday’s rival and current #SABlackbookers horse Arugamama in that race. There is a big price difference between which presents us with some value for Jenkins. That gap is surprising given that Jenkins is a proven winner, which is what he did again when finding the line best to score last start.
