Ballarat Tips February 14


The Courier Maiden Plate Tips (Race 2)


Ballarat Next Best Bet - Race 2 No. 7 Grouse Mountain

It was a terrific debut without luck, with Grouse Mountain being back and green in that Seymour attempt on January 3, where she was forced to come wide in a small field.

The daughter of Vancouver was runner-up in that first race day appearance and behind a winner who has since saluted again, she recorded the fastest last 200m of the meeting.

With a gap between runs, the Ciaron Maher-trained filly has won a tick-over trial at Bendigo and importantly, she did jump a lot cleaner in that January 23 workout.

Power Fm Class 1 Handicap Tips (Race 5)


Ballarat Best Bet - Race 5 No. 6 Pondalowie

We were with her on debut when she backed up strong lead-up work to win a Bendigo maiden by two lengths and Pondalowie was tipped out after that September 27 win.

The time of that event stacked up well for the meeting, with her maiden rating stronger than the BM64 taken out by Celui, a colt who won a metro race at his next outing.

The three-year-old looks at least city class and arriving here off two jump-outs, including a Cranbourne win in decent time, she'll get every chance on the speed under Blake Shinn.

Hygain Winners Choice BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 6)


Ballarat Roughie - Race 6 No. 6 Rising Sun

He landed good bets on debut at Horsham when saluting by two lengths and while Rising Sun was disappointing at Donald following that, there were excuses for that flop.

The Henry Dwyer-trained galloper covered ground in that November 19 attempt over 1200m and with an irregular heart rhythm detected post-race, he was spelled as a result.

Although a sole quiet jump-out on January 30 was inconclusive in regards to his first-up chances, the gelding has tactical speed and from gate three, he should be able to lead.

Hygain Winners Choice BM70 Handicap Tips (Race 8)


Ballarat Value Bet - Race 8 No. 6 Shove Over

This son of Nicconi ran a cracker of a race fresh at 30/1, with the five-year-old managing fourth in a BM78 up the Flemington straight and he was then unlucky second-up.

Sent out as a $9 chance in a BM78 on January 27 off the back of that promising return, Shove Over was held-up at key stages when finishing sixth-of-ten over 1200m.

He's looking for something a little easier over 1400m, which Shove Over gets here third-up at BM70 level and his last two victories have come in this benchmark via city races.
