In the wet Ballarat meeting, the heavy track form will be prominent, but Group 1 champion jockey Damian Thornton will shine in the gloomy days.
Brad Waters, an analyst at the Herald Sun, set the rules for Thursday’s cards in Ballarat.
the best choice
JUST JAKE (Game 5, Game 2-$4.80)
Just Jake is a consistent galloper, always near the target. He was stable when he came back from Cranbourne and will only improve as a result. I hope he can get to the next level.
Miss HAILEYBURY (Race 6, Game 10 – $6.50)
Miss Haileybury had a good track not far away when she was out last time. This time she has made progress in the game and will be difficult to beat again on her home circuit.
Under my spell (Game 7 and Game 6-$3.80)
After an arduous outing in Adelaide’s staking course last time, Under My Spell returned to the Class 1 company. Before that run, her condition was good enough, and she finished second in another re-run at Caulfield.
Ivy Field (Game 8-Game 8-USD 2)
Fields Of Ivy ran violently, and her opponent flashed past when the heavy ground here scored first. She will only improve and can end the day at a high price for the punter.
If you can, please kiss me (Game 1, Game 8-$8.50)
Kiss Me If You Can is ready to stay ahead in Cranbourne’s first game. He will be improved as a result, and can bring another wonderful in Ballarat.
