Ballarat Synthetic Tips May 21


Global Turf Maiden Plate Tips (Race 2)


Ballarat Synthetic Value Bet - Race 2 No. 4 Supersonic Legend

Danielle Chapman’s gelding has demonstrated ability in all three starts to date including when five lengths fifth over 1000m at Camperdown on debut.

That effort came on a soft 5 surface in January after which he was spelled by connections.

The pick took a step forward when returning with a fourth, beaten under four lengths in a maiden over the same distance on a good 4 track at Seymour last month.

While that race hasn’t produced any subsequent winners the selection again performed with credit when following that effort up with a fourth in a fourteen runner 1000m maiden at Werribee earlier this month.

The fifth and sixth from that Werribee contest have both placed second subsequently and the son of Deep Field is set to make his synthetic track debut here.

The gelding will jump from widest of all here however he looks value to deliver a victory with the blinkers worn on his last two starts again in place for this contest.  

Martin Collins Maiden Plate Tips (Race 3)


Ballarat Synthetic Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 8 Golden Warrior

The son of Snitzel cost connections $100,000 as a yearling at the Australian Easter Yearling Sale held by Inglis in 2023.

The selection demonstrated improvement with racing in his jump outs registering a win over 800m on a wet track at Sandown Hillside in his third effort April 18.

While the pick was beaten over twelve lengths on debut at Warrnambool subsequently that doesn’t tell the whole story with the front running winner coming home nine lengths clear.

The juvenile raced from off the pace from a wide barrier that day and having taken a keen hold in the early stages kept on nicely in behind to finish sixth.

Anthony & Sam Freedman’s colt is expected to have improved for that debut experience with the switch to the synthetic track unlikely to be an issue.

The two-year-old has an inside barrier here and with John Allen up looks capable of saluting at the second attempt. 

Race 6 Hygain Winners Choice BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 6) 


Ballarat Synthetic Roughie - Race 6 No. 4 Cosmic Rhapsody

The gelding has demonstrated a liking for this track in the past with three of his seven previous wins coming here.

Those three wins have come from eight starts finishing out of the first three just once with that effort coming when fourth over 1000m in August last year.

The selection hasn’t been seen in action on the synthetic track here since finishing held in three starts on the turf course here this prep.

The most recent of those saw him jump at $41 prior to being beaten just under three-and-a-half-lengths in a 1200m Benchmark 64 handicap April 28.

Melody Cunningham is no stranger to surprise results here with her Devil Dan’s $81 win at the track last July one of her five winners from 34 runners here in the last twelve months.

The selection has a good barrier four from the rail here and with Jarrod Fry a positive jockey booking is taken to return to winning ways. 

Hygain Winners Choice BM64 Handicap Tips (Race 8)


Ballarat Synthetic Best Bet - Race 8 No. 3 Miss Magnifico

Ciaron Maher’s filly ticks plenty of boxes on her return to action including having gone well fresh in the past.

The four-year-old has won once and placed second once from two first up efforts including when runner-up over this track and trip in June last year.

The pick went on to salute over 1200m in a Benchmark 58 handicap here two starts later and ended that prep with a second over the same course and distance. 

That latest effort came when racing at this Benchmark 64 handicap in August and the selection arrives here on the back of a fourth in a jump out at this track May 9.

The daughter of Magnus has an inside alley for this event and she is expected to track the early speed in this contest.

Jockey John Allen, on board first up last prep takes the ride and the pair look capable of recording a win in the finale.
