bet365 Say From SA: Morphettville – Saturday, 30th December 2023

Analysis and suggested bets for nine-race card at Morphettville on Saturday.

We look to lessen the blow of the Christmas expenses with our two best plays of the day coming in consecutive races.

The bet365 best of the day jumps first and it's Excelleration from the Richard Cully yard.

The lightly raced seven-year-old was ridden quietly second up then made some solid inroads late to finish just shy of the frame at Ballarat after being sent out firm favourite. The rise in trip suits third up and with the drop in grade sees him get a great chance to break a long run of outs.

As for the best value play of the day, I'm keen on the chances of the W Clarken & N O'Shea-trained Shooting For Stars.

The four-year-old Shooting To Win mare has left herself with too much to do in her two resuming efforts but has managed to hit the line nicely. Has further improvement to come third up and is capable of sharp improvement. Expect her to take plenty of stopping if Ben Price can get her settling closer from the low draw.
