Two times in a week!
We are back at Ballarat synthetic surface and the Punter’s Prince is warming to a resuming two-year-old who looks worth a strong bet in the first.
ballarat race 1
#9 water bomber
Touted as a talented horse throughout his first preparation.
Water Bomber returns to the race course having been gelded, and his two jump-outs leading in have been quite slick.
Patrick Moloney booked and draws the middle pin, which should see him ascertain a handy run on the speed.
Suggested Bet: Water Bomber win at $2.30
Confidence Rating: 8.5/10
Ballarat race 2
#9 catching clouds
I am going with the fresh filly on the scene.
Catching Clouds has shown good form at her two synthetic-track jump-outs to date.
She has good gate speed and can settle herself handy enough to the lead, or she may even lead them up.
Great chance either way.
Suggested Bet: Catching Clouds win at $4.4
Confidence Rating: 6/10
ballarat race 4
#6 mio sorrento
A tough race to assess at first glance.
Basing this on the map, Mio Sorrento gets the drop on both Black Bolt and My Boy Birmingham.
In strong winning form and can make it three in a row.
Suggested Bet: Mio Sorrento each-way at $4.80 the win and $2.25
Confidence Rating: 8/10
ballarat race 5
The synthetic-track specialist gets up to 1400 metres.
She always takes a little while to wind her sprint, but a nice 4kg-claim will help her chance.
Hopefully, she can settle a pair or two closer than usual.
Suggested Bet: Ronay win at $4.6
Confidence Rating: 7.5/10
ballarat race 6
#11 grand quill
Becoming a costly venture to punters, but he is at enormous odds now.
Handles the synthetic going and might be out of trouble from the wide barrier.
He has been well backed at his last few starts, and we can have a nibble each way.
Suggested Bet: Grand Quill each way at $14 the win and $3.80 the place.
Confidence Rating: 4/10
