EXPERT RACING TIPS: BALLARAT

BALLARAT PREVIEW AND TIPS | EXPERT TIPS | TUESDAY JULY 16TH 2024

RAIL: True TRACK: Synthetic

Expect the track plays relatively evenly, with a slight leaning towards horses on-speed.

Best Bets

Jackson Oldham

BACK: 7. Galath (WIN) for 5 units (Rated at $1.28)

The on course ambulance will need to carry me out of Ballarat on a stretcher if Galath gets beaten in this race. He has jumped out like a rocket, possessing an abundance of early speed and a high cruising speed, he was scratched from Bendigo last week to come here instead.

The only danger according to the market, Toola looks like she is knee high to a grasshopper, a little pony who to my eye, lacks substance and if she beats Galath, I’ll be shocked.

8. Kezza’s Legacy
4. Bellagio Queen
1. Attaboom
2. Bower Boy

Betting Strategy

No surprise to see the early market support for Kezza’s Legacy, a double figure opening price was far too big for some sharp recent jumpout work.

Attaboom will be on-speed and surely finds a race to win soon. Bellagio Queen jumped out very sharply prior to an underwhelming debut on a wet track, maybe on the poly will suit.

3. Trevenson
6. Wolf Club
5. Truth I Fear
7. Magnate Girl

Betting Strategy

No prizes for finding Trevenson at the short odds but he should win. He was beaten by Azeelzle on debut this track and distance and they streeted the others, running far quicker time than the BM58 won by Lady Dumont over the same distance later in the meeting.

8. Miss Xtravaganza
12. Winning Toast
1. Dhanush
10. Nasrin

Betting Strategy

Miss Xtravaganza is another who put a big margin to third behind a possible smart one last start, she looks the one but by the same token, 2.20 on raceday morning looks short enough to my eye.

7. Galath
12. Toola
4. Limb Runner
1. Chocolate Isle

Betting Strategy

BACK: 7. Galath (WIN) for 5 units (Rated at $1.28)

The on course ambulance will need to carry me out of Ballarat on a stretcher if Galath gets beaten in this race. He has jumped out like a rocket, possessing an abundance of early speed and a high cruising speed, he was scratched from Bendigo last week to come here instead.

The only danger according to the market, Toola looks like she is knee high to a grasshopper, a little pony who to my eye, lacks substance and if she beats Galath, I’ll be shocked.

9. Sontay
1. Magwazi
13. Brazen Bon
2. Scream

Betting Strategy

Sontay won first-up with plenty of style, Magwazi was ok first-up at Pakenham, fitter for that and the map is good.

2. Chester Warrior
1. Rosalia
5. Frenchmans Bay
3. Cripps Tonite

Betting Strategy

Very little between the top six in the market for mine, a tough race. Chester Warrior just on top, off the back of a sharp jumpout under a strong hold.

7. Russian Summer
3. Mr Trafficanti
1. Sir Domigo
5. Miss Bariloche

Betting Strategy

No opinion in this race.

3. Accending
2. Platinum Field
1. Capper Thirtynine
15. Donation

Betting Strategy

A tough race to finish, forgiving Accending but with no real confidence.

When you place a lay bet, you are betting on something not to happen. Let’s think about the Melbourne Cup again. Remember: there can only be one winner. But what about the others trailing behind them? If you place a lay bet in a “Win” market, you can celebrate if the runner tails off at the back of the field.
