Morphettville Tips – April 4


Race Previews

Race 1 – 12:06PM HIT107 HANDICAP (2500 METRES)
I can’t understand the odds in this opening event. The John Hickmott-trained Turf Man is the $3 favourite while the stablemate FLOW METER is a $17 chance. Turf Man defeated Flow Meter last start but Flow Meter meets him 3kg better at the weights and that’s worth a lot over 2500m. Flow Meter has raced since and finished 7.3 lengths from Grand Crown who was an impressive winner. Despite finishing a fair way back, Flow Meter still went 4.5 lengths quicker than standard BM, and that’s the strongest last start figure in this weaker race. He has no problem getting the trip, he’s just one-paced, and if Sairyn Fawke lets him roll forward or sits just off the speed and gets going early, he can win this. His last four runs over this trip have been in BM80 to BM82 grade and he’s finished no further back that 4th. Drop in grade here should see him finishing in the placings and potentially challenging for the win.

If you ignore the unplaced run on a Heavy track three starts ago, then BAJAN has won four of his past six and finished runner-up in another. He simply doesn’t go in Heavy ground and is much better with firm footing. With a couple of weeks between runs, Bajan went to Murray Bridge for a very soft barrier trial where he cruised to an effortless victory over Lope De Wolf who was hard ridden and Ritratto who won three in a row before going for a spell. Kayla Crowther takes 1.5kg off his hefty 64kg impost for dropping in grade, but he’s carried 60kg in his last two runs, so I’m not concerned about a big extra in a weaker race.

Surely this is DALASAN’s race to lose. He clearly has the best form having finished 1.5 lengths from Regal Power in the All-Star Mile (1600m), he’s unbeaten in two starts at this track, he’s at peak fitness fifth-up and has drawn perfectly in gate 4. His last start effort rated 13.8 lengths quicker than standard BM and is double that of Perfect Route who is flying, and I can’t see that galloper improving his PB by 100 percent. Dalasan’s two previous runs also rated much higher than anything in this field, and he could literally run a shocker for his standards and still win. Of course, this is horse racing, and anything can happen, but Dalasan looks a special if I’ve ever seen one.
