The Difference (Morphettville Race 5 No. 1)
This five-year-old I Am Invincible gelding trained by Tony McAvoy has only missed the quinella once in seven starts. He won by 1.4 lengths over 1250m at Morphettville Parks on 29 August, then found the winner a touch too good when 0.5 length 2nd in a BM 72 over 1300m at Morphettville Parks on 26 September. He has a 2kg claim and can win again.
Our Benevento (Morphettville Race 8 No. 11):
This six-year-old Helmet mare trained at Murray Bridge resumes here after a 19 week spell and goes well first-up with two wins and two 2nds from five first-up runs. She was improving steadily then didn’t come on as expected when 5.4 lengths 7th over 1200m at Murray Bridge on 23 May and that run should be ignored as she had placed at the 3 starts before that. She finished 3 lengths, a length 3rd over 1200m at Gawler on 3 June before spelling. With her good first-up stats she is worth an each-way bet.
Messerschmitt (Morphettville Race 7 No. 2):
This five-year-old All Too Hard gelding is the early favourite in this BM 72 Handicap over 1100m. He ran 5.75 lengths 11th over 1100m at Caulfield on 29 August, then finished 2.8 lengths 5th over 1100m at Flemington on 23 September. He hasn’t wonfor quite a while and is no value.

Our Newcastle tips for Monday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is in 5 metres. Heavy conditions expected so looking towards runners that are proven on wet tracks. Best Bet Dale (Newcastle Race 6 No. 2) No prizes for finding this runner but put in a solid effort on debut and drops miles in grade. In smartly at the weights here and with no jockey booked yet does look very hard to hold out in this thin maiden. $1.40 l
Our Nowra Tips for Monday's meeting. Key Comments The track is in the heavy range. The rail is true. Best Bet Deni Gal (Nowra Race 7 No. 4) None of these win out of turn but Deni Gal has good claims with a superb record at the track and a good record with Guymer steering. He has won twice from 6 goes aboard which is a very good sign given the horse is 3 wins from 22 starts. Hard to beat and maps

Our Moe Tips for Sunday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is true. The best bet is in the opening race of the day and looks well placed.

Hard to beat and the price is still worth it. $1.75 Best Each Way Virtucon (Moe Race
