Morphettville Tips 23/07/2022  


Race 6 No. 4 MR HAVE A CHAT – ($7) 

Rules of punting tell us to have a swing on MR HAVE A CHAT in the sixth at Morphettville Parks. Showed a stack of speed to be taken on by one off the extreme outside draw in the big field here last week. Classy apprentice Sophie Logan knew there was plenty under the hood as she got stuck into her mount by the 250m. They’ve shaken off the outside horse and appeared all but set for victory, if not for Litchfield County picking his way with cover. Mr Have A Chat had been in front everywhere but the line as Litchfield County got his bib down when it counted. There was a good kick of the footy separating these two from the rest of the field. Mr Have A Chat ran time from the front into the head breeze and will relish fresh ground with the rail back to the true. 



Race 2 No. 5 FRANCE’S BOY – ($14) 

Heir-apparent to Flow Meter FRANCE’S BOY takes to the starter on his stablemate’s big day. Horses for courses as they say and France’s Boy has shown an affinity for this track and trip, often when racing against quality opposition. Raced in good zest here three back when rolling along for Sophie Logan before putting in a brave fight against Noname Lane. We noted some significant fill back towards the inside for that meet with our review noting riders were keen to come off the rail. Didn’t seem to bother France’s Boy as he left a good gap back to his fellow place getters. Has gone around since on the bigger tracks of the course proper here and Murray Bridge. Suited and gets his regular senior Jeffery Maund back in the saddle. 



Race 7 No. 8 THEY CALL ME ALVIN – ($21) 

#SABlackbookers horse THEY CALL ME ALVIN ran fair time to the day when stalking the pace. He was away only evenly with Justin Potter reminding his horse to hold a position off an inside draw. He’s done all his previous racing on the bigger Gifford Hill track, and he showed no concerns stretching out on the Parks. Went to the leaders come the business end, only to be tipped out in a three-way go by a proven winner deep into her own prep. Left a gap back to the rest of the field with They Call Me Alvin ticking some boxes. We’ll forgive the second-up effort when trapped WNC into that North-Westerly and strips fitter to use his inside draw.
