Ballarat horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:25) Eureka Concrete Maiden (1500m)
#6 – Cru Classe @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Cru Classe finished fourth on debut at Horsham and she should derive plenty of benefit from that outing.
The three-year-old daughter of Reliable Man is bred to handle the conditions and most of the money has come for her throughout the week.
She opened at $3.10 and she could start as the odds-on favourite.
Race 2. (13:00) Cervus Equipment Handicap (1200m)
#3 – Crazy Ladies @ $1.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Crazy Ladies has faced tough fields to date and she will appreciate the drop in class after running at Caulfield.
The two-year-old daughter of Snitzel finished second on debut at Caulfield before finishing 4.6 lengths behind Arcaded in a tough event.
$1.80 is getting skinny but she should be breaking through very soon.
Race 3. (13:35) Pipe Pro Direct Drilling Maiden (1100m)
#7 – Sabaku @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Phillip Stokes-trained three-year-old has had three starts for three placings and she is overdue a winning turn.
She comes off a second placing at Gawler and her trial form since has consisted of a second placing and a fourth.
Barrier three is ideal and the $2.70 quote is value.
Race 4. (14:10) Evergreen Turf BM64 (1000m)
#1 – Continuance @ $3.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Continuance comes off a win at Warrnambool and she defeated a handy type, so that bodes well for this contest.
The three-year-old filly shows good barrier speed and with two wins and three placings at this distance, she could be tough to catch.
Damien Oliver rides and she could firm on race day.
Race 5. (14:45) Porter Plant BM64 (1200m)
#6 – Sacred Palace @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Lindsay Smith-trained gelding is a former Kiwi that had no luck in his Australian debut at Warrnambool.
He is a son of Sacred Falls that owns a win and a placing from four starts and we’re expecting a big effort this time around.
$3.40 is a fair price from bookmakers and it’s another good ride for Damien Oliver.
Race 6. (15:20) Hygain Winners Choice BM64 (2000m)
#12 – Sir Marengo @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sir Marengo scored a quality win at Moe two back and it came by 4.3 lengths, so he wasn’t tested in the run to the line.
He followed it up with a third placing at Warrnambool and he drops in class for this race, which will help significantly.
$6 for a runner of his class is good shopping and he will give punters a good sight.
Race 7. (15:55) Sportsbet Same Race Multi BM70 (1400m)
#9 – Chief Altony @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Chief Altony comes off a second placing at Ballarat and the four-year-old is capable of beating this field on Wednesday.
The son of Rebel Raider owns two wins and seven placings from 10 starts, including a placing on this track. He has placed in both attempts at the distance, so punters should expect another top effort.
Barrier 12 doesn’t make it easy, but it could be the place to be in these conditions.
Race 8. (16:30) Hygain Winners Choice BM64 (1600m)
#2 – Spring Break @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Spring Break owns two wins from his last three starts, including one last time out at Geelong behind a good field.
The four-year-old son of Tavistock didn’t have much luck in the run, but still managed to put them away by 1.5 lengths.
He draws wide here but Dean Yendall rides and that should make a difference.
