Morphettville Racing: 2017 Robert Sangster Stakes Betting Tips

Sangster Racing Tips

The UBET Classic (Robert Sangster Stakes) is one of two Group 1’s on the card at Morphettville tomorrow, with a capacity field of 20 set to line up.

The track is currently rated a Soft 5 but with minimal rain it’s possible that we could see it upgraded to a Good 4 at some point.

In terms of pace it looks to me that Sheidel could get a reasonably comfortable lead despite the big field. She’ll likely be joined by English up on the speed, with I Am A Star box seating from barrier 2.

If Sheidel does indeed find the front and get a cheap sectional or two, I think she’ll be incredibly tough to run down. She ran 2nd in this race last year by a very narrow margin and since then she’s gone on to become a Group 1 winner. She’s better than she was at this stage last year and with Joao Moreira flying in to take the ride I think she’s the one they all have to beat. More than happy to take $5.50 for her.

Her biggest danger could come in the form of Super Cash who has a tremendous first up record. She comes into this on the back of a 56 day let-up, and the last time she ran first up she defeated Group 1 winners I Am A Star and Chautauqua. I do wonder whether she is as good at 1200m as she might be at 1100m.

Egyptian Symbol is another horse with a tremendous first up record, having never lost from three fresh runs. The latest of those first up victories was in the WYong Magic Millions over this distance, a distance she has placed at in seven of her eight attempts. She draws well and has trialled well coming into this so she could be the value in the race at $15.

The best of the local hopes looks to be Viddora who has returned in fine style this prep, with a huge effort first up followed by a Group 3 victory last start.The concern with her is her record at 1200m with just the one placing from four starts. Her best form has come over 1000m-1100m,with all six of her wins falling in that distance range.

I’ll be happy to take on English once again at the price today, and the same can be said about I Am A Star who is better suited over more ground. The big unknown in the race is Now Or Later, who makes her Australian debut here. She’s a Group 3 winner over the mile in Ireland but the Smerdon/Williams combination looks threatening. Miss Gunpowder and Legless Veuve worth including.
