Ballarat Racing Tips: Wednesday June 12th 2024

June 11th 2024, 3:31pm, By: Adam Page

Ballarat Racing Tips

Ballarat will play host to an eight-race card to headline midweek racing in Victoria. The first race gets underway at 12.25pm AEST with the last race scheduled for 4.30pm AEST. The forecast is for rain on Tuesday, potentially 4-10mm, so with the track rated a Good4 as of Monday night, that rating could head into the Soft range if the rain does arrive on Tuesday.

Find Adam Page's best bets for Ballarat below, and be sure to head over to our Racing Tips page for more free tips from the key meetings this week.


Ballarat Racing Tips: Wednesday June 12th 2024

Race 2: Pipe Pro Directional Drilling Maiden Plate 1400m - 1.00pm AEST

(13) Sea Of Lights is a Team McEvoy trained filly that looks to have come back in beast mode following three impressive jumpouts, the latest being a win over 900m at St Arnaud where she led throughout and seemingly was jogging throughout in a lovely piece of work. Looks to have had an ideal grounding for 1400m first up, maps perfect from the inside draw and does bring strong form lines from the Summer. Best bet on the program, by some distance IMO.

(6) Rapido Expresso is one of two runners for Moody/Coleman and he looks to have talent. He had jumped out well prior to debuting on the home track at Pakenham where he sat last in a slowly run race. He tracked up and for a few strides, looked the winner, but the mid race spending of petrol tickets just found him out late in the piece when fourth. Better for the run, can settle closer and has race fitness on his side.

(1) Aqua Storm should be kept safe. Stablemate of Rapido Expresso that is on debut off the back of extensive jumpout work on the Pakenham Synthetic. The latest jumpout saw him ran fourth and he seemed to move really nicely under Blaike McDougall, who rides here at start one, so he knows the horse and what is under the hood. I think he has talent so watch the market and see what it does.

Race 7: Sportsbet Set A Deposit Limit Handicap (64) 1400m - 3.55pm AEST

It does look a lovely race for the Team Hayes trained (2) Rackemann. I was keen on him last time at Cranbourne and in the run, he did look the winner, but once he peeled three wide with the horse in front of him going nowhere, Truffle Finder was able to get clear and given it had the more economical run in transit, it was too good late for Rackemann. Pretty thin 64 race IMO and I do think this guy is a borderline Wednesday class metro horse. He's better than these.

(6) Mr Trafficanti resumes for Gavin Bedggood and although 1400m is on the short side for him, the grounding is sure there with a couple of 1000m Cranbourne jumpouts under the belt to get him ready for the return. Sat on speed and won the first jumpout before getting back in the latest jumpout and was pushed out, but did find the line well enough to run third. I think if he can sit on speed and roll, make it a truly run 1400m, he becomes dangerous.

(1) Prevailed should welcome a drop back in grade/depth. Bit to like about the first up win at Geelong before racing at Sandown just over two weeks ago. He sat on speed and tried hard but just lacked the quality and class to go with them late, tiring to finish down the track behind a talented animal, Lady In Pink. Back to Provincial grade, on speed, he can run a much improved race.

Race 8: Hygain Winners Choice Handicap (64) 1100m - 4.30pm AEST

(7) Pharari looks a good horse for Ciaron Maher and despite the wide gate, I think she'll produce sustained speed from the front and be too sharp. She resumed over 1000m at Cranbourne where she was able to use the inside gate to advantage to land on speed and once that eventuated, it was race over and she gapped them in an impressive return. Has a bit on these IMO.

(13) Stokke is a short course type so stepping out to 1100m is the query but will be on speed and giving a sight. Did that when bolting up on debut at Mount Gambier over 900m before going to Sandown and 1000m when giving a sight and tried hard but couldn't quite see it through behind Heart Of Glass. I am sure she'll give cheek on speed...just the end of 1100m is the slight query.

(11) Miss Sunshine is finding it hard to greet the judge first but she's an honest type for Team McEvoy that has home track advantage. Beaten as favourite last time on the Synthetic track here where she seemingly had her chance but was close up in defeat. Maps to do no work from the gate and hard fit, she is one to be entertained for exotics.
