We have centred our attention on the Ballarat card from Victoria today where we are racing on a pretty wet surface. That said, we have identified three great chances that we think will relish the conditions including our best bet which is aiming for three straight wins.
Ballarat is a Heavy 9 with the rail out 11m from the 600m-WP, True the remainder.
Lightly raced gelding MR PHENOMENAL looks perfectly placed to break through here today. Beaten by 2.5 lengths at Pakenham three weeks back and sure to strip fitter for that. Drawn to get the run of the race and looks hard to go past in this field. Placed to perfection. Big show expected.
ONE MORE TRY (BEST BET) has won her past two and can make it a hat-trick over a distance she will appreciate here today. Settled near the rear before coming home well despite being wide but ran away to an impressive two length victory to go with her 1.8 length triumph at Kilmore two starts back. Looks hard to beat and sure to have plenty admirers. Key player.
HOLY FREEZE hasn’t had a great deal of racing and is out of the astute Darren Weir stable. He will be out to atone for a narrow defeat last start at Warrnambool a fortnight ago. Has drawn to get the run of the race and has a great record on a rain affected surface. Looks hard to beat and the sure to be very competitive in this class here today. Massive chance.
