Ballarat racing tips

Race 2. (13:15) Eureka Concrete Maiden (1200m)

#3 – Sign from Above @ $2.35

picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Bet 4 places

Sign from Above is getting close to a win after posting three second placings from four attempts.

The only run that wasn’t a placing was last time out at Caulfield, but the four-year-old found that level of opposition too tough.

Take the short odds before they firm on race day.

Race 3. (13:50) Whitford Liquid Waste Maiden (1400m)

#2 – Governor King @ $3.80

Governor King was only fair on debut when running fifth as a $5.50 chance, but the spell should have done him some good.

The three-year-old son of Fiorente gets all favours from barrier three, and there has been solid betting support throughout the week.

We’re happy to stick with him for another run.

Race 5. (15:00) Porter Plant BM64 (1600m)

#8 – Subrising @ $3.00

betrBetting Brand for Racing Fans!Check odds

Subrising turned her form around when finishing second at Ballarat last start, which is a good form guide.

The three-year-old daughter of Needs Further was only 1.5 lengths behind the winner, and getting the inside draw adds to her appeal.

Take the $3.00 odds before they firm on race day.

Race 6. (15:35) Hygain Winners Choice BM64 (1400m)

#3 – Le Messager @ $3.80

betrBetting Brand for Racing Fans!Check odds
picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Bet 4 places

Looking to score consecutive wins is Le Messager, who was too good for them at Ballarat last time out.

The five-year-old loves racing on the track with four starts for two wins and two second placings, so we’re not betting against him.

He only needs luck from the draw to put this field away.

Mudgee racing tips

Race 1. (13:10) Eduardo Cojuangco Maiden (1400m)

#4 – Taipan Legend @ $2.50

betrBetting Brand for Racing Fans!Check odds
picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Bet 4 places

Taipan Legend has been right around the mark throughout his career, and he owns two second placings from seven starts.

The three-year-old son of Written Tycoon gets all favours from the draw, and that could see him get the better of the favourite.

Money is expected to come for him late.

Race 3. (14:20) Your Song at Gooree Park Handicap (1100m)

#1 – Thundering Soul @ $2.40

Thundering Soul couldn’t have been more impressive on debut when winning at Scone before struggling in Sydney.

The two-year-old colt by Spirit of Boom ran eighth at Randwick behind Fully Lit, which is open class form.

He’s not at that level, but he’s good enough to handle this field.

Race 5. (15:30) Gooree Farm Accommodation C2 (1400m)

#1 – Piggyback @ $2.40

betrBetting Brand for Racing Fans!Check odds
picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Bet 4 places

Looking to remain unbeaten is Piggyback, who won at Gosford and Orange.

The three-year-old filly by Trapeze Artist won by a half-length as the favourite last start, so we’re not surprised to see money come for her again.

Getting barrier two adds to her appeal.

Race 6. (16:05) Gooree Cup (1400m)

#4 – Lockdown Gamble @ $4.40

betrBetting Brand for Racing Fans!Check odds
picklebetUse Referral Code: 'GOBET'Bet 4 places

Lockdown Gamble is already a two-time winner this preparation, so he doesn’t need to improve much to win.

The son of Casino Prince won at Wellington last time out, and that came against a tidy field at open-class level.

We’re happy with the each-way odds available for the loose favourite.
