Morphettville Tips 18/02/2023

BEST BET 🏆  

Race 1 No. 4 KUSHAN KHANIVALE – ($11)

The opening race on the card shapes as an intriguing battle between the favourite Dunmaghlas and KUSHAN KHANIVALE. Both horses show a deal of promise and we do not have a lot between them. Loved the way Kushan Khanivale hit the line over 1250m here last start. Jessica Eaton followed the good pressure before hitting the front earlier than she may have liked. Kushan Khanivale sprinted sharply to put a gap on them before floating while waiting for the others. Jess can play the stalking role from one-off with Kushan Khanivale who can improve again off the experience.

  

NEXT BEST 🥈  

Race 6 No. 6 TAHNEE TRADITION – ($5.50) 

The gate could work out to be a little sticky for TAHNEE TRADITION; however, we do have Teagan Voorham on. The Peter Hardacre trained mare found form third-up with a dominant win over 1200m on the outer track. Callan Murray brought her with one run up the middle to down Shez Betty while coming away from the others. Slow out last time here when giving the speed a massive head start to finish late for third. There doesn’t appear to be as much pace on here and Teagan can give Tahnee Tradition the sweet run early.

 

BEST VALUE 💰  

Race 9 No. 14 TOAST THE DEEL – ($9.50)  

We did like the barrier trial of TOAST THE DEEL prior to her debut which was run at Oakbank. The market had opened short enough, so we opted to sit out and watch her from that wide draw. She was away evenly with them before Ben Price allowed her to come back in an effort to get in somewhere. She got into that nice low action on straightening with a lot of ground still to make up. Toast The Deel ran through the line okay, which had us backing her in a Strathalbyn maiden. We went oh so close to knocking off the hotpot when hitting the line powerfully and has us wanting to follow.
