Parkes is the feature event of the day but Ballarat has one runner we think is bursting to win a race.

Parkes has a very good card of racing for their Cup meeting today which has attracted some talented trainers, jockeys and horses. We think we have found a few good things on the card. As for Ballarat, punters should be looking for wet trackers as we are playing on a very heavy surface.

 

Ballarat is a Heavy 9. The rail is out 9m from the 600m to the winning post and true for the remainder.

 

Parkes is rated a Soft 5 with the rail in the true position the entire circumference.

Race 1 (Ballarat) – 12:30pm E-Cycle Solutions Maiden Hurdle 3200m

EPSOM HILL (BEST BET) is definitely the one to follow. He was sensational in running Cougar Express to a short margin in the opening event on day one of the Warrnambool carnival. There were three maiden hurdles run that day and Epsom Hill’s one saw it run nearly four seconds quicker than the other two. He also has Self Sense form which is sensational as that horse ran second to Life Less Ordinary in the Wagga Cup. A heavy track doesn’t worry this guy either. Top pick!

Race 2 (Parkes) – 1:05pm Parkes Farm Centre Benchmark 65 Handicap 1300m

We are going with DELIVERED here. The gelding is going better than his recent numbers suggest and from barrier one is set to get a gun run in transit. Last start at Wagga he couldn’t find clear running at the right time and had to settle for eighth but prior to that he was a fast-finishing fifth in a TAB Highway at Randwick behind the smart Nic’s Vendetta. Drops 2kgs for this assignment today and gets experienced Grant Buckley.

Race 7 (Parkes) – 4:05pm Parkes Services Club Parkes Cup 1600m

CLASS CLOWN is a great chance to win his hometown Cup. The Chris Heywood-trained runner has been lumping big weights around recently and been performing well. His last start win at Wagga was very good, albeit in easier company, because he still had to carry 62kgs. The distance is definitely his go with two wins from three starts. Five starts back he finished fifth to O’So Hazy in a Country Championship Qualifier – that horse then ran third in the final to the smart Victorem. With just 56.5kgs on his back, Class Town is worth a bet for us.
