BALLARAT R1 #7  CAPRICCIO $4.65

This filly looks to have returned well if her recent jump-out is any guide. She was ridden a bit to win but beat home a few with above average ability, including Heptagon, Moor Wanted and Wentwood. Can give #9 Pride of Jenni another chance after running 3rd on debut, jumped out okay prior and is worth including in a quinella.

BALLARAT R2

Tough race with a few chances. Will be boxing up some wide exotics. #3 He’s A Balter went around in a handy maiden first up, Singing Sword has subsequently bolted in and I think the 3rd placed horse goes pretty well. #5 Master Ryan is a very interesting galloper making his debut as a ten-year-old.  Has jumped out sound enough to include at big odds. #7 Sense of Doubt is the one to beat, bumped into some handy types and was not disgraced in a jump-out with the smart Tofane. #14 Street Baby and #16 Flash Freddie are good enough to place and last but not least I thought #15 Magnetic Dash is the other winning hope at good odds. Was good late in a jump-out behind Alfo Oro and was heavily backed late on debut. Worth another chance.

BALLARAT R3 #7  PELLIE $29.00

Tipped a few times now but looks big odds again for a horse who ran 2nd last start.

BALLARAT R4 #7  JOCAT  $4.15 #11  SHADOW PREY

I still think Jocat is better than maiden grade but lacks a turn of foot. The extra distance should help and hopefully Walker can be positive and get her rolling along on the speed. Shadow Prey ran a big race at Flemington when getting out to the 1800m. 2000m should be ideal. #5 Unharmed seems to be able to pull out the odd, good 0run at big odds from time to time.

ARMIDALE R2  #6    SWAYSIR

Went forward last time out and gave a much better showing. If they do the same here should be hard to run down.

NOWRA R2 #1  WESTGROVE    #9  THE EMPIRE $2.75

Really liked the recent trial of The Empire. Blinkers are a new edition and looked to do everything in first gear. Westgrove can run a drum after a sound debut.

NOWRA R3 #8  NO COMPLAINTS $5.80

Very frustrating galloper but can win a weak maiden.
