Best Bets

Our Balaklava Racing Tips for Wednesday’s meeting.

Sanbuck  (Balaklava Race 5 No. 4)
This four-year-old Reward For Effort gelding trained by Byron Cozamanis has two wins and nine places from 21 starts. He was held up from the turn to the 200m and just battled evenly once clear for 3.1 lengths 5th over 1100m at Strathalbyn on 26 May, then drove through to lead on the rails and kept going for a 2.3 length win over 1100m at Gawler on a soft track on 16 June. That was a dominant win and a repeat of that effort would see him win here.


How to pick a winner

Each Way

Turf Tapper (Balaklava Race 7 No. 4):
This seven-year-old gelding has six wins and 11 places from 48 starts and has two wins over this distance. He sat off the pace before peeling wide between runners to chase solidly and just miss for 0.5 length 2nd over 1100m at Strathalbyn on 26 May, then he never looked likely when 8.7 lengths 7th over 1100m at Gawler on 16 June. He has the speed toovercome the wide barrier draw and might appreciate the extra distance at this stage of his preparation. He is worth an each-way wager.


Best Lay

Zeppa (Balaklava Race 8 No. 4):
This three-year-old Foxwedge gelding trained by Tony McEvoy is the early favourite in this BM 58 handicap over 1609m. He battled steadily for 4.9 lengths 7th over 1500m at Bendigo on 16 May, then ran on strongly from 12th to make good ground in the final 200m and finish 3.1 lengths 2nd over 1800m at Murray Bridge on 13 June. He has only won one of his 11 starts and I’m prepared to risk him.

Horse Racing Tips: NSW Tuesday 18th June 2024

Key Comments The rail is in 2.5 metres from the 950m mark to the 300m mark and in 1.5 metres from the 300m mark to the winning post and true for the remainder. The track is in the soft range. Best Bet Spillify (Lismore Race 6 No. 1) 2/2 on this track and 1/1 over this track and trip. Barrier 10 with the apprentice aboard does pose some risks but this race looks up for the taking and the track and trip stats

Horse Racing Tips: NSW Tuesday 18th June 2024

Key Comments The best bet is in the opening race and has been subject to strong market support. The track is in the heavy range and the rail is +5 metres from the 1100m-450m, and true for the remainder. Best Bet Waterski (Hawkesbury Race 1 No. 9) Good effort when resuming just missing Art Volant who has won again since so the form looks good. Maps well and finds the right race to be breaking maiden in what looks a very suitable field.

Horse Racing Tips: VIC Tuesday 18th June 2024

Key Comments Racing on the synthetic. The rail is in the true position. The best bet looks very hard to beat off the back of a strong run when resuming and looks suited by the drop in grade. Best Bet Corner Off (Ballarat Race 6 No. 10) Great return on the heavy track when running 3rd and the horse in second has won again since so the form has been ticked off. Tricky draw but was never far away in this grade last

Horse Racing Tips: QLD Tuesday 18th June 2024

Key Comments The track is rated good and the rail is back to the true position. Best Bet Sailor's Rum (Mackay Race 1 No. 1) Sailor’s Rum transferred from T & C McEvoy to Nick Walsh back in May and is having his first run for 13 weeks. He’s had 2 trials at Rockhampton and won both by good margins. Leading hope. Check odds on SmartB Analyst: Jo Jackson Each Way Ruby Sparkles (Mackay Race 6
