Ballarat Tips for August 29

Hygain Winners Choice Maiden Hurdle Tips (Race 2)

Ballarat Value Bet - Race 2 No. 7 Zedstar

He is a prolific place getter and although he is probably nearing the end of his campaign, but he again looks an each-way bet.

This is not an overly strong field and he will be right up on the pace trying to lead them a merry dance and he could well do that in this field.

If he can find the form from two and three starts back, he would just about be starting favourite in this event.

Sportsbet Gotta Take Care Hurdle Tips (Race 3)

Ballarat Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 4 Rolland Garros

This galloper could not have been more impressive last start at Coleraine after a bit of a flop at Sale when sent around as short priced favourite, blundering a hurdle.

Now with that confidence boosting win under the belt, he is the type of horse that can now go through his grades and reach some greats heights in jumping next season.

Expect him to roll to the front and just keep going under the urgings of champion hoop Steven Pateman.

Ecycle Solutions Grand National Steeplechase Tips (Race 6)

Ballarat Best Bet - Race 6 No. 1 Social Element

This guy is a freak of the caper and although he needs to carry 69kg to win, the way he has won his last five races have been nothing but dominant.

He could well be one of the best jumpers we have seen since the days of Black And Bent, rarely making a mistake, yet possessing superior flat ability.

If this guy jumps cleanly once again, he will show them a fresh set of heels and romp home as he has done all prep long.
