Free Racing Tip from expert Ben Bare
Morphettville Race 1 Tip #7 Volum $2.25
His last start second over the Mildura 1209m had plenty of merit to it and a repeat of that showing will see him more than competitive in this race.
The Tony McEvoy trained gelding is now third-up off a 342-day spell and should be at the peak of his fitness.
Blessed with plenty of early-toe, this three-year-old by Stratum will look to spear across from barrier ten and make every post a winner.

Sandown Race 8 Tip #2 Demolition $3.40
Off the back of two solid runs this preparation, the gelding by Street Cry has his hoof on the till.
His last start over the Moonee Valley 1200m was luckless after Jockey Craig Williams found himself at the back of the field due to an awkward barrier.
Williams found plenty of traffic in the run and before he could find a striking position, the leader was off and gone at the top of the straight.
The run was impressive considering the circumstances and given clear running, he would have won comfortably.
The move onto the spacious Sandown track will ensure he gets every chance to run down the leaders this time.
Grafton Race 6 Tip #4 Chalmers $4.40
With two wins and two seconds this preparation, the Kris Lees trained gelding heads north in search of a Grafton Guineas win.
His last start win over the Warwick Farm 1600m was very impressive and a repeat of that will see him go close in this race.
Drawn well in barrier five, the gelding by Mossman drops 1.5kg off his last run and has an impressive record of two wins from two starts at the distance.

Warwick Farm Race 2 #8 Song and Prayer $6.50
The filly by Stratum gets back to the races off a solid first preparation.
At her first two starts, the three-year-old trained by John Thompson showed above average ability, which saw her sent out a $1.55 favourite third-up over the Kembla 1600m.
It proved to be one run too many that preparation, with the filly running a disappointing 2.3 lengths third.
Off the back of a spell and two nice trials, punters should expect the real Song and Prayer to show up on Wednesday.
In a field of eight, expect jockey Tim Clark to ride patiently at the back of the pack, before unleashing the filly's strong sprint to race over the top of them late.

Free Racing Tip from expert Josh Reed
Warwick Farm Race 4 #7 Sweet Scandal $3.50
The Chris Waller trained three-year-old finds a weak filly and mares race here.
Coming off a strong maiden win, this filly by Sepoy is set to take the next step on a dry surface.
Her two career starts have been on Heavy and Soft surfaces and it wouldn't surprise to see her show further improvement on top of the ground.
An in-form Blake Shinn is set to ride from the nice draw and the 1300m shouldn't pose an issue.
Sweet Scandal looks to have a bright future and is well placed to make it two wins on-the-trot.
