Warren Huntly’s Wednesday Ballarat Preview

Race 1

IGOTCHA is quite promising, he ran well first up on firm ground and will appreciate the rise in trip. MAWHERA is another with upside, he gets blinkers on and had the tempo against him last time. GREENHILL PRINCE hit the line well in a strong race last start. VIVIDEEL has trialled well to resume.

Selections: 6,5,3,2

Suggested Bet: Igotcha to win

Race 2

GROUSE MOUNTAIN caught the eye finishing off strongly on debut and has jumped out well since. PURE RAIN was well supported chasing a promising galloper first up and shapes as the main danger. TREZZAMINA has shown speed and talent at the jumpouts and may have improved since her debut when  she was well supported.

Selections: 7,8,9,4

Suggested Bet: Grouse Mountain to win

Race 3

SUNSHINEINMYPOCKET has trialled and jumped out well in NZ and Australia. RANK’N’FILE has a fitness advantage on a few key rivals and looks suited at 1200m. LIBERTY STATE showed good speed on debut and has jumped out in similar fashion to resume. SANZENO has trialled well to resume with MAXXIE, who also trialled well and makes his debut. SALSITA has also been jumping out in good style.

Selections: 8,5,9,7

Suggested Bet: Sunshineinmypocket each way

Race 4

CHICA CON SUERTE has run well at her two runs to date and looks suited stepping up to 1400m. GYPSY BEAUTY made her encouraging debut in what may prove to be a strong maiden at Sandown and also appears suited at 1400m. INTO YOU is another that should appreciate 1400m based on her strong finishing debut over 1300m. SKELMORLIE had trialled nicely going into her debut and stepping up to 1400m should also be in her favour. SAWBAY worked home well on debut in NZ.

Selections: 2,4,5,9

Suggested Bet: Chica Con Suerte each way

Race 5

Good race with some promising gallopers resuming. PONDALOWIE impressed winning on debut and has jumped out in similar fashion to resume. DE BERGERAC also impressed winning on debut as a well supported favourite. He’s trialled well to resume and the form around his debut victory has held up well. MOUNT OLYMPUS has shown promise in his career to date and has trialled impressively to resume as a gelding. ROCK THE BAR has also trialled well to resume following his debut victory and has a case.

Selections: 6,4,2,3

Suggested Bet: Numbers 6,2 & 4 for the quaddie

Race 6

RHAPSODY CHIC has shown talent in NZ and Australia in his brief career to date and has trialled quite well to resume. GIRL competed well in some strong races last prep and has been jumping out in good style. SQUAMI is capable on his day and strikes a suitable race. MISS TITELINE is hard fit, consistent and gets blinkers back on.

Selections: 5,7,3,9

Suggested Bet: Rhapsody Chic to win

Race 7

ELLENMAC is sure to strip fitter for her return in a strong form race and has jumped out nicely since and gets a visor on. GARGANTUAN had excuses first up and generally improves second up. EL CORDOBES has been consistent in his career to date and has jumped out well for the new stable. MERE MORSEL should be at peak fitness now and had excuses (lame) last start.

Selections: 6,4,1,3

Suggested Bet: Ellenmac each way

Race 8

Even finish. CAPITAL ASSET will strip fitter third up, he comes through a strong race and maps well. KINGS CONSORT also comes through a strong race first up and will be suited by the extra 100m. SHOVE OVER can make his own luck and drops in grade with a claim. SIR ATLAS has obvious upside and has jumped out ok without his race day blinkers. SIRUIS BACK has jumped out ok to resume gelded. VAN ROY, NORTH CHANNEL and TIFFANY VALENTINE are in the mix should they secure a start.

Selections: 12,5,6,7

Suggested Bet: Capital Asset each way
