Ballarat R8 – Group 2 Ballarat Cup 450m
With the scratching of original favourite MR AUDACIOUS, the Group 2 Ballarat looks set up for HENNESSEY (1). Drawn to get all the favours in the run from box 1, he can find a great spot early before powering to the line. FERDINAND BOY (7) is the Cup’s king in regional Victoria and is searching for back to back Ballarat Cups. He is not going as well as this time last year but must be respected.
Tip: HENNESSEY @ $2.70
Gosford R9 – Grade 5 388m
DOUBLE THREAT (1) was an all the way, best of the night winner at Gosford two runs back and was narrowly beaten at Wenty last week. He jumps, leads and wins! KAIDEE DIXIE (5) is better than her recent form suggests and can make a race of it with clear running from the squeezebox. She is the danger.
Mandurah R6 – Open 405m
EINSTENIUM (1) has led all the way at two of his last three Mandurah runs and will get every chance from the cherry tonight. If he can find the lead the $4 on offer looks HUGE! RAGE ON ZATARA (4) is racing in terrific form and will pour on the early pressure. He will be hard to run down if he can find the front. The first 50m of the race will tell the tale!
