Race 3 No. 6 Rippin’ Tomahawk
With the quick beginning Honey Hush in box 5, the 6 only has to step reasonably to muster up and take over here. By far the best dog in the race, a clear passage is all that’s required to reel off a 22.5 and victory. Best bet.
Race 5 No. 4 West On Soho
Looking for the 4 to bounce back to some form here. Been racing quality dogs and has a very consistent record here. Map not that bad for her and is a threat.
Race 7 No. 3 West On Brae
The 3 is a weapon and he can assert his superiority here with a good step at box rise. Accelerates quickly and has a lethal record here track and trip. Hard to beat.
Race 8 No. 2 Garrio, No. 6 His Stop It and No. 8 Forced Entry
Going to play 3 runners here. The 2 and 8 will be the main threats with the 2 being perfectly boxed and the 8, who we are now on for a 4th consecutive time, also enjoying a good draw to muster up. The smokie is the 6, who can surprise late with a strong closing section and loves racing here. Market will determine how we play but these 3 should get attention.
Race 9 No. 6 Mystify and No. 4 Chasing Jason
The 6 gets one more chance to show she can get this middle trip. Racing ok at Cannington against good 600 dogs, she goes well here and will enjoy being back. This is her time to show what she’s got. The 4 wins if he’s fit and sees the arm. He can run time and relishes this tack and trip.
Race 11 No. 4 Shirakaba and No. 6 Yunderup Sheila
Last, very last chance for the 4 here. Has the talent to win and drawn to get a nice run so there will be no excuses tonight. Must insert herself up the back and descend late. The 6 had no luck at all last week and she is more than capable of figuring here. Can run time and just needs to offset the box to get into it.
Race 3 No. 4 Werina Express and No. 3 Ferdinand Boy
Looking for the 4s early speed to play a part here at odds. Can step and accelerate very quickly when he does. The 3 will go with him as he is a first split weapon. Loves it here and hard to beat.
Race 4 No. 8 Ultimate Avenger and No. 6 Zachary
The 8 is well drawn and can muster into this. Track and trip stats enormous and runs time. The 6 is the smokie. Has yet to race here but burns the clock at other tracks and can surprise.
Race 6 No. 3 Shima Punga and No. 8 Indy Fido
Ridiculous quote about the 3 who ran 2nd to Aston Rupee last time. Has got himself back into form and can shock this lot if he gets a chance to accelerate up the back. Massive overs at a track he excels at. The 8 is the one who can also surprise here. Enigmatic but good, look for him to go quickly out wide and stick on late.
Race 7 No. 1 Black Avenger and No. 7 Zivon Bale
The 1 is boxed to perform here. A four-time winner track and trip and breaks 25. Will get every chance to show his talent off the ideal draw. The 7 also goes well here and can present late at odds. Handles the box and rarely misses a hole here.
Race 8 No. 7 Snapper Smith and No. 8 Just Like Mick
The 7 is a monster price and while she will give a start, she can descend late and run a race here. May need some trouble in front but she showed at Horsham she can step up to these if given luck. Spec hope at the huge odds. The 8 is a talent and if he brings his A game to Ballarat, he will charge outside to the first turn with his pace and put himself right in this. Can run time. Couple of smokies to round out.Market Market
