Balaklava Tips December 9

Taylors Wines Benchmark 54 Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Balaklava Best Bet - Race 5 No. 5 Aussie Sojourn

We were with this mare second-up at Balaklava where despite ultimately being a run short, they did perhaps miss the boat with the winner Boomer Beach out and hitting top gear whereas Aussie Sojourn was cuddled until a little later in the run home.

The daughter of Good Journey resumed over the 1200m at Gawler and in that affair, which was completed in class record time, she was doing her best work late and was evident in that second preparation, the step up past the sprint trips is a plus (beat Zouly over 1500m who was coming out of a strong Maiden).

Stepping up to a mile suits and along with deriving further fitness with that 1400m effort under the belt, our best bet also gets Dom Tourneur back in the saddle who was aboard for her victory third-up last time in.

McArdle Pty Ltd / SABOIS Maiden Plate Tips (Race 6)

Balaklava Value Bet - Race 6 No. 8 Victory Club

Trainer Matthew Seyers and jockey Anna Jordsjo have combined for four winners so far this season and team up again this Wednesday with this three-year-old who is set for his debut assignment over the 1200m following a strong jump-out.

At his home base of Murray Bridge, Victory Club was bustled out to lead early on December 1 and strode out for a comfortable victory in the end whilst here, he doesn't look to have found the strongest of Maiden's. and has been specked at a longer price in the early markets.

They've showed their intent in not only that recent piece of work but also with the application of blinkers for race day and from barrier eight which can be advantageous on this big Balaklava circuit, he does look forward enough to figure straight away.
