Daily Racing Tips – Thursday, July 30

Ballarat: Race 3 (2pm)
No. 12 Future Force

The well-bred Future Force will take good improvement into her second campaign task at Ballarat this afternoon and can break her maiden.

The Written Tycoon filly, out of the Group 1 performed Gregers, finished fifth at her only appearance during her debut prep, and worked home well to fill the minors at Moe when resuming this time.

She’s drawn and weighted well, and I think that the booking of Dean Yendall to ride will also prove beneficial.

Ballarat: Race 4 (2:30pm)
No. 8 Flintoffking

Flintoffking has improved for two starts this time and is ready to win at Ballarat today, at a lovely price ($7 at publish).

The Olympic Glory filly finished fifth over 1400m at this venue when resuming and was last seen running a credible fourth over a mile at The Valley.

The rise in trip looks ideal and Lindsay Smith’s horses are flying – this filly can return the stable another winner.

Ballarat: Race 5 (3pm)
No. 3 Secret Vega

Secret Vega failed to fire at Flemington most recently, but this is a big drop in class and he is over the odds at his current price ($7 at publish).

The Lope De Vega gelding continued to improve with each effort earlier this prep, culminating in a lovely win on the Synthetic and in BM78 company at Pakenham.

He has been freshened since his last appearance and is certainly up to the class of this.

Ballarat: Race 8 (4:30pm)
No. 5 Harlem Blues

Harlem Blues was game in defeat at Cranbourne last time and can return to winning form in the last at Ballarat today.

The Your Song colt broke his maiden in style on the Synthetic here two back and took up the running last time out, only being pipped late by The Great Hans.

So long as he doesn’t have to do too much work from a wider draw today, he’ll be tough to catch.
