Ballarat R4 – Mixed 4/5 545m
VICE GRIP (4) is racing in great form with two wins and two minors from his last four starts and in the small field, he should have no problems finding the lead. From there he will dominate the race and prove too strong for his rivals. He jumps off the page! EL CAZADOR (5) won well over 460m at Geelong last start and won over the 545m back in January. He will find the line well for the quinella spot.
Tip: VICE GRIP @ $1.60
Rockhampton R7 – Best 8 407m
SKILLED (3) has won nine of his last 11 over the 407m at Rocky and was a 6+ length winner here last week in good time. He should continue on his winning ways tonight. CRAIG’S REGRET (1) has drawn well in box 1 and will get every chance to find some form in the lead. He is capable of an upset and is the danger.
Tip: SKILLED @ $1.80
Wentworth Park R9 – Grade 5 520m
CONVOLUTED (1) has won her last three at The Gardens, including a best of the night win at her first 515m run last start. With terrific early speed, she is drawn to lead and will be hard to catch. The $3+ on offer is over the odds. LUCKY ACE (8) won well from box 7 at Wenty last start and this race is no harder. The pair can battle out the finish, with the box draw being the difference.
