Our Murray Bridge Horse Racing Tips for the weekend.

Royalty (Murray Bridge Race 2 No. 4)
This Fastnet Rock gelding impressed at this track last start. He raced keenly early but didn’t come on in the straight for a disappointing 6.6 lengths 4th over 1400m at Morphettville Parks on 27 June, then worked over to lead and fought off challengers for a 1.3 length win over 1200m at Murray Bridge on 22 July. That was a dominant win and he drops 1 kg in weight here. He should win again.


How to pick a winner

Each Way

Aristocratic Miss (Murray Bridge Race 7 No. 3):

This Foxwedge mare doesn’t win very often but is rarely far from the winner. She finished 2.2 lengths 5th in the Listed City Of Adelaide handicap over 1400m at Morphettville Parks on 25 April, then jumped awkwardly and was held up more than once and still managed to finish 2.9 lengths 5th in the Group 3 R A Lee Stakes over 1600m at Morhettville on 16 May. She has had a 12 week letup and goes well fresh and this is a big drop in grade from last start. She should finish in the trifecta here.


Best Lay

Nicconi Poni (Murray Bridge Race 8 No. 7):
The early favourite in this 1000m BM 58 handicap is this Nicconi mare. She started favourite and finished 0.6 length, 0.8 lengths 3rd over 1200m at Wagga on 10 December, then finished 4.1 lengths 7th over 1200m at Wagga on 24 December. She is first-up after a 32 week spell and has changed trainers to Will Clarken. Others in the race look closer to a win and I will just watch her go around.
