Ballarat Synthetic Tips for August 24


Polytrack Maiden Plate Tips (Race 4)

Ballarat Synthetic Value Bet - Race 4 No. 12 Defining

I am automatically drawn to the McEvoy debutant who best jumpout has been on the synthetic track back in June, and now coming back from what looks like a stint at Morphettville to a circuit that this girl knows.

Leading jockey Jye McNeil takes the reins on Defining with the only negative being this very wide alley of 14.

At the current quote, this filly is the one I want to be siding with on an each-way basis, especially at her home track from the firing McEvoy yard,

Porter Plant BM58 Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Ballarat Synthetic Best Bet - Race 5 No. 8 Universal Lady

This mare had trialled up nicely on this track in July and proved too good first-up over the track and trip when taking a handy spot in running.

What I like about Universal Lady is the placement second-up, as we can often see maiden winners out-graded in 64 class at their next start, but they are happy to take their time with this mare, now contesting a 58.

There are a lot of seasoned horses in this race which is her issue, but a few do not like to win often or string wins together, and this girl showed a will to win last time, so I feel she's ghe one with the least convictions.

Ballarat Synthetic Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 8 Night Passage

Although this mare is going to improve over further as the prep goes on, I just cannot knock a horse of the McEvoy's at this track, especially when they do have a touch of quality on their side.

Celine Gaurdray is riding in some terrific form as well, currently striking at 18% from her last 50 rides, 7% above her career average, while she is striking at 75% when teaming up with the McEvoy's with three wins from four rides.

The main danger looks the favourite Court Deep who has 4kg claiming apprentice Heidi Gillie on, so expect them to go faster than a walk, while this girl can build into her race nicely and run over the top.
