Our Morphettville Horse Racing Tips for the weekend.

Octane (Morphettville Race 5 No. 5)
This I Am Invincible gelding has won 4 of his last 5 starts, and two of those wins have been at this track. He got well back last before running on strongly out wide to finish 1.5 lengths 4th over 1050m on a heavy track on 20 June, after giving away an impossible start. Last outing he got well back in the field again before running on strongly and gathering in the others late for a 0.4 win over 1100m at Gawler on a soft track on 11 July. He will get well back in the field again but I think he can run on strongly again for another win.


How to pick a winner

Each Way

Jacobite Prince (Morphettville Race 3 No. 1):

This Choisir gelding is coming back in distance here, which looks like it will suit him. He jumped awkwardly and got much too far back before working to the line for 3.6 lengths 4th over 1400m at Murray Bridge on 23 May. Last start he jumped badly again but worked hard to lead to the turn. He weakened in the final 250m to finish 5.6 lengths 6th over 1600m at Murray Bridge on 13 June, and the shorter distance makes him look a solid each-way prospect.


Best Lay

The Difference (Morphettville Race 8 No. 10):
The early favourite in this 1200m BM 64 handicap is this Tony McEvoy-trained gelding. He started favourite and finished 5.3 lengths 10th over 1100m at Morphettville on 21 September before spelling. He resumed with 0.8 lengths 2nd over 1000m at Murray Bridge on 4 July . There ae many last-start winners in this race and he doesn’t represent value.
