Ballarat: Race 4 (6:53pm AEDT)
Same Race Multi

Short Pork has been a model of consistency recently, and he can win the first Ballart Cup Heat tonight.

The son of Sulzani has returned plenty of strong efforts in good company this preparation and while there isn’t a lot of value left in his quote, I’m going to select him as the winner in a Same Race Multi, and bolster the bet elsewhere.

For value, I’m also going to select Barooga Dodge and Mahogany Jet to finish in the first four.

Our Same Race Multi selections are:

  • 3 Short Pork (Win)
  • 2 Barooga Dodge (Top 4)
  • 8 Mahogany Jet (Top 4)
Ballarat: Race 5 (7:20pm AEDT)
No. 1 Gotham Duke

Gotham Duke will take winning form into the fifth at Ballarat tonight and looks well placed to make it two in a row.

The son of Walk Hard rarely returns a poor effort, and he has actually won three of his last four, highlighted by his last-start performance at this track and distance.

He can go straight to the lead and will give them something to chase.

Ballarat: Race 6 (7:43pm AEDT)
No. 3 Pirate Pete

Pirate Pete has gone to another level recently, and he is up to winning the third Ballarat Cup Heat tonight.

The son of Dyna Tron tuned up with a couple of competitive efforts in October, and has won each of his last starts, his last three in particularly slick time.

With clear passage, I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish again.

Ballarat: Race 7 (8:04pm AEDT)
No. 4 Do It

Do It has returned some lovely efforts this prep and looks up to winning the seventh at Ballarat tonight.

The son of Fernando Bale has missed placing just once in his last seven starts, winning three times and finding form around some quality chasers.

He’ll have the benefit of an empty box on his outside for this contest and will take beating.
