2019 Balaklava Cup Tips, Betting Predictions & Best Bets

We are racing at Balaklava today for their Cup meeting which hosts a strong nine race program with plenty of depth across the card. 

The feature sprint looks a highlight with city class gallopers taking part as well the Cup which looks to have Group One form lines coming into it.

Race 6 No. 5 Miss Brixton - via BetEasy

It may be a case as usual at Balaklava of just backing McEvoy trained horses if you see them in. 

This mare was very good behind Russian Romeo who is a smart one of Will Clarken's on August 28. She stretched out to a mile last prep and won over 1400m which is what she runs over in this.

She is a mare by Helmet so the extra ground should suit and will likely hit her straps when out to a mile.

She draws barrier three for this event and may be able to settle closer to the speed over the extra furlong, utilising that perfect gate. This looks the perfect race for a horse that should be able to compete in better races.

Balaklava Next Best Bet

Race 7 No. 5 Columbia - $4.80 via BetEasy

It looks a strong race for the feature sprint of the day with many city class form lines coming into the race.

Columbia is the horse to beat for mine after a light freshen up from his fourth placing at Moonee Valley against Usain Bowler and Tavisan. He carried 58kg that day and will drop four kilograms for this.

First up he won over the five furlongs coming home with a powerful finish over the top of Kabini. This horse is a deadset, come from behind sprinter and should get the pace on in front with Arrow Lane and Barood pacemakers. Parsifal also has the tactical speed to add some ignition into the race. 

If this race is genuinely run which it looks on paper, watch out for Columbia over the top of them late.
