Balaklava Tips December 8


Atlas Event & Party Hire Maiden Plate Tips (Race 3)


Balaklava Best Bet - Race 3 No. 13 Lights Of Broadway

Raw, but eye-catching late in an Oakbank trial, Lights Of Broadway did come from last over the 1250m on debut and that was a much stronger maiden than what she finds here.

There were map queries from a wide draw on the Parks circuit, hence they opted to scratch on Saturday and while she's drawn out again, that's not necessarily a disadvantage at Balaklava.

With natural improvement at start two and a good lead with Jason Holder now taking the reins, there isn't much in the way of opposition, so she gets her chance to breakthrough.

Taylors Wines BM58 Handicap Tips (Race 5)


Balaklava Next Best Bet - Race 5 No. 4 Frankel Star

This gelding has a good second-up record, which includes a BM66 victory over Neodium last prep at Gawler, a galloper that's rated well above any runner in this BM58 field.

Frankel Star was a big drifter on resumption at Balaklava, but stuck to the task well for third and with the benefit of gate two, Anna Jordsjo can potentially take up the running here.

Suited on a firmer surface (all four wins have come on good tracks) and stripping fitter this Wednesday, there's no reason why this six-year-old can't give a good sight in a winnable race.


Adelaide Galvanising Industries BM54 Tips (Race 7)


Balaklava Value Bet - Race 7 No. 7 Fox D'or

Now under the care of Ryan Balfour, the five-year-old wasn't expected to figure first-up over 1200m at Morphettville, but was the eye-catcher from the rear, finishing midfield on November 2.

Fox D'or had trialled up nicely here at Balaklava  versus Azzureous and Canford, two city class gallopers and now gets to the 1600m third-up, with his sole win coming over 1700m.

While he was a little flat second-up, the five-year-old still managed a midfield finish and with the form from his fresh tilt still stacking up in town, he's worth another chance at the price.
