Balaklava Tips December 6


Coopers Brewery Class Two Handicap Tips (Race 4)


Balaklava Next Best Bet - Race 4 No. 1 Lancelotto

The four-year-old has demonstrated good form in four starts since registering a sixth of 12 in a 1000m Morphettville event when racing first-up this spell.

Two of those four efforts have come when racing at metro level, including when beaten just over half-a-length in finishing third in a 1250m Class 2 handicap at Morphettville Parks.

The gelding is a versatile type, given he raced from the front that day, having been ridden from mid-division when two lengths third over 1050m at Morphettville before that.

Lancelotto heads into this contest on the back of a third in a Benchmark 58 handicap over this track/trip and has a good barrier in six here.

Brittany Wong’s mount usually races prominently, but has performed well when racing from mid-division in the past and he is taken to salute here.  

Barry Flitter 75th Birthday Benchmark 58 Handicap Tips (Race 5)


Balaklava Best Bet - Race 5 No. 2 Pointless Praise

The gelding has acquitted himself well in three starts since breaking his maiden in a 1350m set weights contest at Strathalbyn in October.

Pointless Praise raced on a good 4 track that day and followed that up with a close third when racing at metro level in a 1600m Class 1 handicap at Morphettville just under two weeks later.

The four-year-old has shown solid form when up in trip following that Morphettville effort, including when beaten just over one-and-a-half-lengths in a 2050m contest at Strathalbyn last time.

He shaped as if a step up in distance would prove no issue when keeping on nicely for third, having performed best of those racing from off the pace on that occasion.

Richard & Chantelle Jolly’s representative draws well and looks up to doubling his career tally.

Balaklava Value Bet - Race 6 No. 5 Magic Delta

Trained by Paula Trenwith, Magic Delta has shown a liking for this venue in the past, having placed twice here earlier this prep before registering a narrow victory over this track/trip in September.

The daughter of Better Than Ready contested a similar event to on a Good 4 when successful under jockey Nichola Yuen that day.

The mare has been tried at metro level since, while she finished a good sixth over 1000m in a Port Lincoln Benchmark 58 subsequently.

The six-year-old jumped at big odds for those metro efforts, but did acquit herself well when eighth of 12 in a Restricted 64 handicap over 1050m at Morphettville last month.

The return to this level is a positive and having shown a liking for this venue in the past, she looks value to register a win here.
