We have found a few standout selections at Balaklava today that will be key players in their respective races and should prove hard to beat.
Balaklava is racing on a Soft 7 with the rail True.
TROUBLESOME LAD just missed as a favorite last start and is on the seven-day back-up here today. Chased hard to just miss when narrowly defeated by Burning Man at Murray Bridge a week back. Has the form and looks perfectly placed to breakthrough. Should be winning.
1st: No4 TROUBLESOME LAD 2nd: No2 Last One Named; 3rd: No6 Brakefoot Bling; 4th: No8 Poetic Diva
DIVER is resuming from a spell and looks well-placed after two trials leading into his return here today. Did race in a handy 120K race at Caulfield back in October behind the likes of Qafila and Sacred Sword, before going to the paddock for a break. A win won’t surprise here today and the perfect draw goes in his favour.
1st: No6 DIVER 2nd: No2 Ciroc; 3rd: No7 Grey Frog; 4th: No1 Brother Darkness
Sticking with DATURA to atone her last start defeat at Gawler and bounce back into the winner’s circle here today. Beaten by a neck at Morphettville two starts back and will be the one flashing at them late. Sticking with him, his next victory isn’t far away.
1st: No7 DATURA 2nd: No2 Bolt I Am; 3rd: No4 Get in the Bowl; 4th: No1 With a Bit of Dash
