2019 Ballarat Cup Tips - Can the Japanese claim one more race?

It's Ballarat Cup Day as the country club hosts a stacked ten race card this Saturday.

The card across the board looks strong with many contenders from the Flemington carnival backing up here.

The rail will be true and the track will race in the good condition.

Ballarat Cup Best Bet - Suzuka Devious @ $15

This Japanese galloper is a level below his fellow raiders, but he looks a nice horse based off his two Australian runs.

Last-start he was seventh in the Mackinnon Stakes, beaten five lengths when coming home from last.

He was only 1.5 lengths off Ballarat Cup favourite Fifty Stars in that race and he gets a 1.5kg weight swing on him.

He has drawn barrier 14 but this would not worry his racing pattern as he will drop out to last.

Having Runaway in the race should make this race genuinely run which will certainly give him the chance to run home hard.

Ballarat Cup Value Bet - Hang Man @ $11

This galloper has had two nice runs since his win in the Benalla Cup.

He comes into this race with the minimum weight, but will have to jump from a wide gate.

The form from the Herbert Power clearly is good enough from this and he has just been topped off with a nice third in the Bendigo Cup.

This looks an even race on paper and if he can find luck when other do not in the run, he may be very hard to hold out.
