Murray Bridge Tips 20/08/2022   


Race 4 No. 6THE MAGISTRATE – ($11)

Dom Tourneur sent THE MAGISTRATE out to chase after the tearaway leader Saint Olga on debut at Balaklava. Sam Burford’s charge made the successful chase before tracking wide at his next start in town. Resumed this time in with just-a-run over 900m here when failing to make any headway behind Magic Phantom. Ran time over this track and trip as Ben Price managed to find some cover while tracking the speed. The Magistrate chased gamely as Taunting drove through along the fence with Wotuwant and Glacius running on out wider. Lachie Neindorf provides some weight relief here as The Magistrate finds one to chase in Sea Witness whilst racing back in class third-up.



Race 8 No. 4 FOX GEM – ($11)

FOX GEM attracted good support throughout betting leading up to the second-up win at Balaklava. This was off the back of a promising return at Gawler and not even an inside leaders’ dominated track could keep the punters at bay. Todd Pannell allowed his big striding mount to settle near the tail as expected off a good speed. Fox Gem then promptly rounded them up from out in the middle of the track to come away and win as the good thing of the day. Made a fool of us by staying in the gates when we backed him here last start and may pay to forgive.



Race 2 No. 7 BEAR ARMS – ($12)

Probably not going to be as wet as we would usually like to see for BEAR ARMS on Saturday. We tend to associate this mare with the heavy tracks which is what she received at Morphettville last start. Had been in good form going into that run, only missing the top two once at her past five starts. Rocked back as the gates opened which saw her slowly away in a field strung-out by Rising Renown. Bear Arms was doing her best work late with Eran Boyd struggling to pull the horse up past the post. Extra trip suits and there should be some pace on again in this.
