Morphettville Parks Tips 22/04/2023

BEST BET 🏆  

Race 1 No. 1 JENKINS – ($4.40)

We’ll pick on the opener of the card where JENKINS tops the list in a thin race with few chances. Received strong market support from a wide opening quote first-up as he flopped out of the gates as usual. They ran along under a controlled tempo over the 1250m here with early leader Two Time Twice able to fight back and win. Gary Lo gave Jenkins a treat once recovering from the tardy get away to thread the field for second. Followed with a similar performance in restricted 64 grade over 1400m at Pakenham second-up. The winner Sheer Class gapped them with Jenkins finishing amongst the placings again. Should be ready peak over the 1550m third-up and prove hard to hold out.  

  

NEXT BEST 🥈  

Race 4 No. 4 YURI ROYALE – ($9)

Morphettville Trainers Richard & Chantelle Jolly sent YURI ROYALE over 1300 metres on the Parks track first-up. The quality field just jog-trotted early to set it up for those in front while Yuri Royale had settled near the tail. Jake Toeroek had him off the bit once they sprinted and Yuri Royal continued to build into the bridle on turning. He really found his rhythm late, particularly as another quality galloper in My Khalifa ranged outside him. Those two horses went to the line together with the former finishing amongst the placings. Disappointed as our Best Bet last start with the field walking up front after Yuri Royale bombed the start. Not a typical trait of his and we’ll stick for another run as senior rider Todd Pannell gains the ride.

 

BEST VALUE 💰  

Race 3 No. 1 RITRATTO – ($19.20)

Lachlan Neindorf will have RITRATTO in a perfect one-out position somewhere handy to the speed. We don’t expect the big field to be going overly hard as there won’t be many attacking the leader Rialtor. Trainer Mick Huxtable steps Ritratto out to a suitable trip as he strips fitter for two runs this prep. He was okay from the back in the fast run 1400m race behind My Khalifa as Struck By kept the field strung out. Would never have expected Ritratto to handle Oakbank with that big awkward stride of his. We’ll forget he went around last time, and he will still have taken plenty of benefit from the run. The one-time SA Derby favourite typically races well on the Parks and will appreciate the step back in grade.
