Ballina Tips March 1


Headroom Hair Class 1 & Maiden Plate Tips (Race 4)


Ballina Next Best Bet - Race 4 No. 10 True Fairy

The chasing effort last time out behind a tearaway leader would've flattened any horse, so it's no surprise to see True Fairy freshened right up ahead of her fourth outing.

It was a much-deserved breakthrough from the three-year-old, who has always shown ability and she arrived to that January 7 attempt off a third in a strong Lismore maiden.

With a kinder draw, she would've won a December 22 event that's produced multiple winners and resuming in a weak Class 1, True Fairy looks the progressive horse here.

Ballina Roughie - Race 6 No. 5 A Deel Of Humour

Although she didn't salute in 2023, the daughter of Dundeel was competitive throughout most of that calendar year and that included multiple runs in Brisbane metro grade.

The 1590m is as short as she wants it, however, it's likely to be a more testing affair on wet ground and the six-year-old has saluted first-up on a heavy track (over 1700m).

Her trial was okay without the blinkers on, but they go back on for race day and in an open race where the more fancied runners all have decent queries, a blowout wouldn't shock.

TAB Country Boosted BM58 Handicap Tips (Race 7)


Ballina Best Bet - Race 7 No. 3 Shaggy Rogers

Aside from a debut flop in 2021 when thrown in the deep end via the Wyong Magic Millions, Shaggy Rogers has been a consistent galloper and he finds a winnable race fresh.

Spelled after three placings and a fifth in his second campaign, he was an eye-catcher first and second-up last prep, and he could've won either of those had he drawn kinder.

After breaking through, Shaggy Rogers was then competitive at midweek level and along with the Matthew McGuren engagement being a good lead, the gelding also maps well here.

Lennox Hotel Class 1 Handicap Tips (Race 8)


Ballina Value Bet - Race 8 No. 2 Seventies Hit

He's also accepted for a Class 1 at Eagle Farm on Saturday, however, this is a far softer option and with regular hoop Jag Guthmann-Chester aboard, he's a chance should they come here.

Off a big freshen-up and after getting back/covering ground, his last start on the Gold Coast Synthetic can be forgiven and interestingly, Seventies Hit was well-backed there.

The four-year-old had decent form from his spring outings, with seconds behind a few gallopers who look city class and a switch to wet ground won't worry the son of Your Song.
