Ballarat Tips October 22

Interpath: 4cyte Joint Health Fillies and Mares Mdn Plate Tips (Race 3)

Ballarat Best Bet - Race 3 No. 12 Universal Lady

This Exceed And Excel filly has shown plenty of ability so far in her career and gets her chance to breakthrough now second-up after a forgivable fresh run.

Damian Lane takes the ride and his record at Ballarat over the last 12 months is impeccable, riding at 35% with a 14% return on investment.

Our best bet Universal Lady got too far back after missing the start badly first-up and was inconvenienced throughout, so willing to give her another chance on Thursday.

Coming out of a strong form race first-up on October 3 is this daughter of Hinchinbrook who's well placed coming back to a Fillies & Mares Benchmark 64.

Island Joy resumed in a very hot race up the straight at Flemington which was won by the now Coolmore Stakes favourite September Run, and wasn't disgrace albeit didn't handle seem to handle the straight.

She goes back around a bend here, drops massively in class and this is by far the easiest assignment this three-year-old has seen over her short career to date.
