Ballarat Tips April 3


Porter Plant 2yo Maiden Plate Tips (Race 3)


Ballarat Best Bet - Race 3 No. 6 Snack Bar

It was a big debut performance from this Godolphin colt, who ran the fastest last 800m/600m/400m and 200m of the Ballarat program on March 11 when runner-up over 1000m.

Snack Bar put a big space on third via that maiden, where the half-brother to Bistro (Listed winner) was eased to the rear from a wide draw and he now jumps from gate two.

The step to 1200m also suits the son of Frosted and with his breeding suggesting that softer ground shouldn't be an issue, he's well placed to breakthrough on Wednesday.

Sportsbet Loves Ballarat BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 5)


Ballarat Roughie - Race 5 No. 9 Naval Force

He was a touch disappointing when fifth-of-ten last time out at Kyneton, however, Naval Force was completing his second run following a freshen-up, so he'll strip fitter.

The three-year-old was also good the start prior at Terang, where he should've finished a little closer after being held-up at key stages before working home in restricted room.

Naval Force did bounce back off a poor second-up performance in his first campaign when taking out a maiden on wet ground and he maps for a soft run under Jake Noonan.

Hygain Winners Choice BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 6)


Ballarat Next Best Bet - Race 6 No. 8 Sacred Bull

Although he's yet to salute outside of maiden company, the son of Sacred Falls has been mostly consistent in seven starts and the gelding shouldn't be far away now third-up.

Sacred Bull ran good closing splits fresh at Bendigo in a race that's produced two subsequent winners and he was again doing his best work late when up in trip at Yarra Valley.

That last outing over 1968m should top him off nicely, while he split Hoops and Dublin Journal over a similar distance in spring before a spell, and that form reads well for this.

Ballarat Value Bet - Race 7 No. 10 Refreshing

In a bunched finish via a race that suited the off-speed brigade, Refreshing had excuses first-up at Cranbourne, where the mare missed the kick and was hunted up early.

That work took its toll in the finish, however, the four-year-old was only beaten just over two lengths in the finish, while she has a win and a second from two second-up attempts.

The daughter of Star Turn is suited on a surface with more give, having won a metro maiden on heavy ground last winter and she followed that with a third in a Sandown BM70.
