We have found a few standout selections at Balaklava today that look to be winning hopes in their respectful races. Tony McEvoy saddles up today’s pick of the program that looks perfectly placed to give him another winner and add to his impressive year.
Balaklava is racing on a Good 3 with the rail out 3m entire circuit.
DOMINATION is resuming from a spell but has trialed well leading into his return and will be very competitive here for prominent trainer Tony McEvoy. Narrowly beaten at his previous start back in August but looks ready to gets his maiden victory out of the way. Stable and jockey have a great strike rate when combining. Key player.
1st: No5 DOMINATION 2nd: No6 Johnny Johnny; 3rd: No7 Samphire 4th: No10 Bohemian Force
Despite drawing wide EXALTED CRAFTSMAN looks well placed on the seven day back up. Finished less than a length from the winner at Morphettville a week ago so stable must be confident backing him up here today. Has a good record over the distance and looks to be one of the leading contenders. Rates well. Sticking with him
1st: No1 EXALTED CRAFTSMAN 2nd: No6 Super Swoop; 3rd: No5 Samstag; 4th: No3 He’s a Valleyboy
Looked impressive last start and we are sticking with YOUBETCHA to make it successive victories on a track he has had success over in the past. Proved too good for his rivals when streaking away to an impressive 2.3 length victory at Port Augusta last start. Will strip fitter second-up and looks perfectly placed to take out the final event at Balaklava here today. Serious chance.
1st: No3 YOUBETCHA 2nd: No1 Bel Streak; 3rd: No5 Archway To Heaven 4th: No9 Free The Wind
