Ballarat Tips August 11

AJM Contracting BM78 Hcp - Porter Plant Polytrack Series Heat 4 Tips (Race 4)

Ballarat Best Bet - Race 4 No. 7 No Change

The Reward For Effort gelding has been racing much better than what form reads on paper. He was ridden more prominently last time and nearly pinched a handy race, and can go one better here

Last start No Change was ridden more forward taking up the front runners role opposed to its last few runs where it had been getting back in metropolitan races and hitting the line well. He was only run down in the very last strides of the race by a smart one in Reformist, and was very well backed late in betting which suggests that he is ready to win

The runs prior to that for No Change were all full of merit, attacking the line well in races with enormous depth when beaten by the likes of Walking Flying, Mystery Shot and Lord Bouzeron. He is a proven synthetic place getter, and if they adopt similar tactics of racing more forward again here, he can go one better and get the chocolates.

Ballarat Next Best Bet - Race 6 No. 11 Betty Of Grable (Each Way)

Betty Of Grable's best 2 recent performances have come on this track at Ballarat, but it’s recent form has been on heavy tracks which she does not handle at all. Back on to a surface more to her liking, she can atone at great value 

Last start, Betty Of Grable was unable to handle the wet and heavy conditions at Moe as she finished well back beaten a tad under 15 lengths. The run prior here at Ballarat was superb when finishing off really strongly to run 2nd behind Heljami, who has franked the form by running another good race recently.

Betty Of Grable seems to be a dry track horse with 5 starts on heavy tracks all yet to register a placing. But she gets her conditions in this race.

From gate 3, Jordan Childs has options as to where he would like to place the mare. She’s versatile and can race anywhere. She races as if 2100m will be to her liking, and is tackling a race that seems devoid of depth with the favourite being a horse who only broke its maiden last start at start 24. Betty Of Grable looks a good play at decent odds.
