Ballarat horse racing tips – February 21, 2021

Ballarat will host eight an eight-race card on Sunday, as the Victorian racing cools down from a blockbuster day at Caulfield. The track has come up a Good 4 and with the rail out 2m from the 1600m-800m and then 4m the remainder we should see it race fairly. A perfect summer’s day is forecast so there should be no excuses for fancied runners on the day.The first is set to jump at 1:20pm AEDT.


Best Bet: Pal D’Oro

It was a basically a match race when Pal D’oro was first up over the 1400m here at Ballarat on February 7 when half a length second behind Ironedge. Pal D’oro managed to hit the front in the final furlong but was left vulnerable late for the favourite to finish over the top of him. The Maher and Eustace colt steps up to the mile for the first time and looks like he will appreciate the extra 200m here second up. In his debut campaign his second up run saw him finish three quarters of a length behind Embolism and is the clear strong form we want to be with on Sunday. From barrier four expect to see him settle in a midfield position and when asked for an effort at the top of the straight should be too good for this field.

Next Best: Kingstar Amber

We were with the Shane Nichols trained Kingstar Amber at her last start at Sale on February 12 when outmuscled by a $101 chance in the final stages. She hit the lead with a furlong to go and it looked like she was just going to go right past her rivals. Having peaked on her run in the concluding stages, you would assume dropping back to the 1000m would suit her perfectly fourth up from a spell. All three runs this campaign have seen her finish second, but she has been knocking on the door to break her run-of-outs and Sunday looks to be that day.

Best Value: Makimak

The Matt Laurie trained Makimak was a touch unlucky in her fifth-place at Caulfield on January 30 when beaten by just over a length and a half. With barrier 13 expect Dan Stackhouse to settle Makimak towards the back of the field and have her savage the line late at the end of the mile. Having won on the Sunshine Coast two runs back she is in good enough form to lob in the third leg of the Ballarat quaddie.
