Ballarat Tips & Previews, Monday 16th May

The first race for 2022 on the Ballarat synthetic goes ahead to begin the racing week as the Punter's Prince guides us through all the best bets.

Racing from the Ballarat synthetic surface returns in 2022 with eight races on the Monday program.

The Punter’s Prince has found one a good each-way odds and his best of the day comes up in the opening race. 

ballarat race 1

#5 wild komodo

Mitchell Freedman saddles up his new three-year-old gelding in the form of Wild Komodo.

Being by Unemcumbered, he is bred to be a speedy type of horse and his jump outs seem to suggest he has it in spades.

His two most recent efforts at Ballarat  and Avoca were strong, but it was the Ballarat jump out with the blinkers which really stood out.

As soon as the shades went on, he pinged to the lead and never looked back.

The gear change could be exactly this horse needs to become genuine.

Suggested Bet: Wild Komodo win at $3.2

ballarat race 3

#11 Silent Surrente

There are a heap of horses in this race with far too many convictions to tip.

That is why siding with first starter Silent Surrente is the way to go.

The filly makes her debut after three jump outs with her two most recent ones being the line we will draw.

Her 1000-metre jump out saw her finish last, but it was what she did after the post that gives the sign she is going to love 1400 metres at Ballarat.

She strode the line beautifully without being touched and had a nice stride about her.

Get the inkling she is ready to fire and will have the handlebars down.

Suggested Bet: SIlent Surrente win at $4.80

Suggested Exotic: Boxed Trifecta – 1, 11, 12

ballarat race 5

#5 crystal dynasty

The early money has come for Crystal Dynasty and rightfully so.

She is the one to be with in this race after a solid effort at Mildura in BM-64 grade as she continues to build into her preparation.

She was only third-Up over 2000 metres that day and we know this stable gets them at their peak as the preparation progresses.

Fourth-up now, with a nice fitness platform and Johnny Allen in the saddles make her hard to beat.

Suggested Bet: Crystal Dynasty win at $3

Suggested Exotic: Quinella 5 & 9

ballarat race 8

#5 rebellious lord

Backing Rebellious Lord to get back into winning ways.

He is not in the most amazing form on the turf tracks at the moment but getting on the synthetic is exactly what is looking for.

He handles these type of tracks quite well and his on-pace running style should be favorable here.

Billy Egan is riding well after scoring a handful of winners in Adelaide over the weekend and should land in a plumb spot with this galloper.

Suggested Bet: Rebellious Lord each-way at $8.5 the win and $2.90 the place.

Suggested Exotic: Quinella 1 & 5
