Ballarat Tips 19/08/2022


Race 4 No. 4 IN MY FEELINGS – ($4.50)

IN MY FEELINGS can chalk up her first career win when she steps out in Race 4 of the day. The Maher/Eustace galloper wasn’t far off them when resuming with a 6th at Warracknabeal at what was just he second career start. She then headed to the Pakenham Synthetic on July 28 and placed 3rd behind Coaxial. That came over the 1100m and she was a fraction slow out of the barriers before producing the fastest last 400m to land two lengths off the winner. The daughter of Manhattan Rain went 3.6 lengths slower than standard, which is better than what any horse in this race has produced. She should have some improvement to come and has drawn perfectly in barrier 3 with Daniel Moor to ride. 




Race 3 No. 5 RAYZA WARRIOR – ($3.50)

Rolling the dice on the 23-start Maiden, RAYZA WARRIOR, in Race 3. The five-year-old has been in career best form since switching to the Synthetic tracks, placing in four straight races on the surface. His most recent start came at Ballarat on August 9 and he settled midfield before doing all the chasing behind Graham, who pinched a winning break at the top of the straight. Those two put a big gap on the rest. Rayza Warrior went four lengths slower than standard benchmark, which are the best figures that any horse in this race has produced. He sticks to the 1400m and just needs to find a spot early on from barrier 11.
