Saturday Horse Racing Tips Morphettville – 2011 Birthday Cup Field

In Adelaide today, Saturday February 5, Allan Scott Park Morphettville is set to host to host a massive nine-race programme and here we provide Races.com.au readers with the best Saturday Horse Racing Tips for Morphettville.

The action at Adelaide kicks off at 12:59pm (AEDST) with Race 1 – the $32,000 Holdfast Life & Investment Handicap (1800m) featuring a top field of eight three-year-olds.

Our race tip for race one to kick start your winning wagers at Adelaide is #2 Our Iridium to cause an upset over the favourites and win at generous odds through Luxbet.

Highlighting the Morphettville programme this Saturday is the $80,000 Listed Birthday Cup (1800m) running as Race 8 at 5:38pm (AEDST).

The 2011 Birthday Cup field features 11 runners following the early scratching of #3 Lady Avacan.

We are tipping another upset in the headline race and have #2 Bonindi rated special to win, Luxbet currently paying double figure odds on the six-year-old.

For the placings in the Birthday Cup Movie Mogul and Rockwood are two other longer-priced outsiders with the talent and recent form to finish in the money.
