|When||Tuesday, August 10, 2021|
|First Race||1pm AEST|
An eight-part is scheduled for Tuesday afternoon on the Ballarat synthetic, and HorseBetting’s Victorian form analyst presents his best bets and quaddie selections with odds from Australia’s leading online bookmakers. With clear skies forecast, it is set to be a great day for racing, and the meeting is set to get underway at 1pm AEST.
Ballarat Best Bet: Young Hostess
Our best bet on the program comes up in the last event of the day when the Jamie Edwards-trained Young Hostess steps out over 2100m. Having won and finished second at her last two starts over this track and distance, the eight-year-old mare has been racing in consistent form and should prove too good for this field. She chased home Heljami last start on June 25, and this race looks to be easier than that. With six weeks between runs and with a genuine tempo expected, the daughter of Host should be able to go through the gears with a sustained run from the rear of the field as she makes it two wins from her last three starts.
Next Best at Ballarat: Glamzelle
Anthony & Sam Freedman send Glamzelle to the Ballarat 1200m following a runner-up performance at Pakenham on July 31. Having started as a $2.10 favourite on that day, she led the field up but ran into one better, although she managed to put a length on her rival back in third. From barrier eight, we anticipate Zac Spain will have the four-year-old Headwater mare settled outside the likely leader, Victoria Falls, and with a little bit of class on her side, Glamzelle should kick clear at the top of the straight and bring up a deserved maiden victory having had five placings from nine career starts.
Ballarat Value Bet: Roddandtodd
In the second leg of the quaddie, the Barry Goodwin-trained Roddandtodd presents great value despite needing to lug 63kg over 1200m. Mikaela Lawrence hopes back on board, and her 2kg claim will benefit his chances considering he will go forward from barrier seven. The seven-year-old gelding is rock-hard fit, and on the seven-day back up he is expected to give them something to catch. He showed two starts back when finishing third that he can carry the big weight, and at $20 it is hard to ignore his chances on Tuesday.
