Morphettville Tips 31/12/2022


Race 3 No. 9 ORACLE SON – ($3.20) 

Kayla Crowther jumped out on Phillip and Tommy Stokes stable horse ORACLE SON here a month ago. He did all the right things for her including being first out of the gates before coming back underneath her. Kayla kept Oracle Sun under wraps on the speed for a couple of furlongs before asking him to quicken again. The pair came away from subsequent winner Whatsanamegeorge. Since been to the trials at Balaklava where he again jumped quickly from out wide. Oracle Son again came back underneath Kayla to settle on the speed before extending into the straight. He raced a little green over the last furlong or so as he came away from the others in fast time to the day.



Race 8 No. 5 DISAGREEABLE MISS – ($5.50)

The BM72 over 1500m was run at such a crawl that they finished two lengths astern of the BM60 run earlier. The speed was so slow that this field ran more than ten lengths faster over the last 600m in a failed attempt to catch up. The eye-catcher finishing with that flourish over the final three furlongs was DISAGREEABLE MISS. She was a little slowly away, which is a common trait of hers, and settled as last of the nine runners. We don’t need sectional timing to tell us that Disagreeable Miss broke the clock inside that final00m as Jess Eaton switched the whip into the left hand. Those two came home at such a rate of knots that they would no doubt have won given another stride.



Race 4 No. 6 MY BOY JETT – ($11)  

John Hyam keeps the in form claiming apprentice aboard MY BOY JETT while sending his 3yo to Morphettville. My Boy Jett finished handy enough at all three runs in his 2yo season and looks close to breaking through this prep. Trapped wide without cover when racing first-up over 1200 metres at Gawler. Didn’t quite catch Charlesfort for third with the other horse enjoying a cosy run back the fence. Two horses in Sipsmith and Fortis In Armis had swept down the outside to claim both late. Since found an economical run at Murray Bridge to run good time over the seven furlongs. No speed in this may see Ellis utilise his claim to control the race off the inside draw.
