A busy day once again around Australia and Adelaide metropolitan racing takes place at headquarters after a week off. Morphettville Parks Tips for the 15th July below.
Rail Position: Out 9m 1000 to WP; 6m Remainder. Sectional 612m
Dual Track Meeting: N
Track Type: Turf
Track Condition: Soft 6
The inner track at Morphettville traditionally races a little bit more leaderish than the outer track and with the rail out we anticipate it will favor those racing in a handy position once again.
At this stage, there isn’t any more rain predicted for Friday night or Saturday pre-race ensuring the track should race in the ‘perfect’ range between a four and a five.
Race 1 #3 Bris Vegas @ $6.00
Small fields here at Morphettville which is often the case at this time of the year and when the rail goes out. Expect that Bris Vegas improves sharply from his first-up run where he was well supported and ran fairly. Jamie Kah is as good as jockeys in South Australia get and she’ll put the horse into a prominent position and he looks well over the odds at six dollars.
Race 2 #1 Irish Mint @ $6.00
Irish Mint drops in grade and comes back to 1000m which is a positive. Drawn the pegs he will press on and settle in the first two or three runners. For a 1000m race with the Rail out there really isn’t a whole lot of speed in the race and he only needs to hold the likes of Showpero and Nodoubtaboutit to look the winner at the 200m here.
Race 8 #8 Grumpy Guru @ $7.50
He’s not built an overly impressive winning record but does look well in here. The run last start was very good and this is a soft race on paper. The inside draw should prove to be a positive thing because we are anticipating it ensures he settles in the first four or five runners. If he does, he’ll be awfully hard to beat and give us a great go for our money each-way.
