Balaklava Tips July 29


Royal Exchange Hotel, Kadina / SABOIS Two-Year-Old & Over Maiden Plate Tips (Race 2)

Balaklava Roughie - Race 2 No. 3 Pindaric

The late betting could be interesting with this well-bred gelding who's on debut in a very weak maiden.

By Fastnet Rock and out of a stakes-winning mare in Champagne Cath, Pindaric was last seen going through his work easily for a Murray Bridge jump-out win on July 23.

Prepared by the Michael Hickmott stable who's striking at 18% this year, he certainly had a lot more to give in that recent hit-out where he did show early speed and the winkers have been applied for this.

As already mentioned, there's a lack of quality in this line-up via the exposed runners and it wouldn't be a shock to see this three-year-old produce straight away.

Balaklava Best Bet - Race 5 No. 3 Domination

Admittedly the Grant Young yard can be a hard one to catch but with this gelding finding his pet track and distance here, he's well placed to return to the winners stall.

A noted front-runner who has won three of four attempts over the Balaklava 1050m journey with his only defeat being a third in the feature $50,000 sprint on Balaklava Cup day.

His last victory on May 20 came in the same Benchmark he faces here and with the 3kg claim of Jacon Opperman, drops 3kg off that win which sees him superbly in for this event.

Ideally he'll be looking for a small upgrade on the current Soft 5 surface and making his own luck on the speed, Domination should take some catching as the best bet at Balaklava.

Coopers Benchmark 64 Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Balaklava Value Bet - Race 8 No. 3 Splash Some Cash

This four-year-old generally takes a few runs to hit his straps and whilst he will eventually get over more ground, he can be forgiven for what was a brave second-up attempt for fourth.

After drawing barrier 10 at Morphettville on July 18, Splash Some Cash found himself three and four wide for the entirety of that seven furlong trip but continued to whack away bravely with the two length defeat having plenty of merit.

Versus many of these that have poor winning strike rates, that's not as big an issue for this son of Good Journey who's saluted six times from twenty six starts and he was forced to lump 61kg in that last start performance.

The honest Splash Some Cash has upside and on the big Balaklava circuit which will give him ample to wind-up from a prominent position, he's certainly capable in a race of this nature.
