Balaklava Tips April 28

Agfert Benchmark 54 Handicap Tips (Race 4)

Balaklava Best Bet - Race 4 No. 2 Sitting Bull

While he was still doing a fair bit wrong over his first three preparations, the ability was clearly there with this gelding who was at the end of his campaign when failing as favourite in a Benchmark 58 at Morphettville in October.

The son of Moshe was thereabouts in his three prior outings, firstly when resuming at Murray Bridge where he was only reeled in by an impressive Another Award (after racing wide throughout), a subsequent city winner who has been very competitive multiple times at Stakes level.

Breaking the Maiden then in September under Dom Tourneur, who takes back the reins on Wednesday, he was also aboard in an April 12 jump out where although narrowly defeated, he looked in complete control, going to the line under a good hold late.

Atlas Event and Party Hire Rating 0-62 Handicap Tips (Heat 14 SA Sprint Series) (Race 7)

Balaklava Value Bet - Race 7 No. 4 Trygve

There's been merit in both South Australian starts from this ex-Victorian, firstly making good ground for third in a Benchmark 70 at Morphettville, recording the fastest last 800m/600m/400m and 200m splits of that March 27 event.

Although beaten further in his next assignment, there was enough to like in that April 10 effort behind in a leader dominated race, making good late inroads from the rear for a midfield finish despite spotting them a huge start.

Alana Kelly now rides Trygve for a third time and from a middle draw, we'd love to see her be a little more positive early on this four-year-old, who can ideally come from a midfield position and swoop late on this big Balaklava circuit.

TPI Association SA Rating 0-62 Handicap Tips (Heat 12 Provincial Super Series) (Race 8)

Bakaklava Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 7 Mustari

It's a handy enough race considering the 0-62 ratings band and while this three-year-old isn't as seasoned as his rivals, he does look the one with the most upside going forward, arriving to Balaklava second-up off a good return at Strathalbyn.

While the 1350m of that April 18 event was short as he wanted it, with a better draw Mustari arguably wins that affair but ultimately was just left with too much to do after being forced back early from a wide alley, being outsprinted late when peaking slightly on the run.

The son of Choisir broke the Maiden over the Balaklava mile back in November prior to being spelled and carrying just 56kg after the Scarlet So claim, they should landing closer over this trip and with a little more improvement, he can go one better on Wednesday.
