Ballarat R6 – Grade 5 450m
IVORIA BALE (1) broke through for a much deserved win at Geelong last start after a frustrating run of placings. Drawn box 1 tonight, she can ping the lids and be hard to catch. She has won at her only Ballarat 450m run and can get the prize. GOLD DRILLER (6) has been racing consistently and steps up in distance tonight. He is the danger.
Tip: IVORIA BALE @ $2.8
Wentworth Park R6 – Grade 5 20m
MOTOR CITY MOSSY (1) had no luck last start when falling, but her three other runs have been full of merit and she looks well placed tonight. Expect her to punch through from the good draw and be too strong in the run home. IVY CONNIVING (4) is an experienced chaser with a good record who is capable with a clear run from the tricky draw. The pair should fight out the finish.
Rockhampton R4 – Best 8 407m
SKILLED (4) is a prolific winner who is airborne at the moment with six wins from his last seven starts. His last four wins have been in best of the night time and he will be finding the line strongly. Bad luck is his main danger. Ex-NSW chaser BLACK MAXIE (1) won well on his Rocky debut last week and can handle the step up to top grade. He should fill the quinella spot.
