Thursday selections

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

No Wednesday selections but thought there is a couple Thursday at Ballina that may be worth a bet (depending on prices)

*As people know I try to find as much value as possible, however I can’t find any at Ballina, just these three between $2 and $3.


Probably like them in this order below:


Ballina Race 2 No.1- EXCALIBRATOR $2

Been racing in far better company and this a nice drop in grade. Beaten by Prioritise two runs back and the effort was good to finish around some handy horses even though well beaten by the winner. Next start Gatlinburg beat him home 2.2L and again the effort was good in a much harder race. As long as he is black figures I’d be keen to bet from gate 1.


Ballina Race 8 No.4- SNOW FIELDS $2.40

Been racing good company in midweeks in Brisbane, back to a class 2 in the northern rivers and from a good gate should take care of these with even luck. Any of her last few runs would win this so hopefully she chalks another one up.


Ballina Race 1 No.13- CABIERIAN $2.70 (SCRATCHED)

Not sure I’ll bet in the race now but REEF KNOT was $1.80 fav last start and pulled up lame which is a fair excuse. $5 seems ok when the fav is MARK MY WORD who is genuinely scared to win.

Hope I don’t regret throwing this bloke into the selections! Has had a big wrap and not lived up to it. Had gear changes as well as the ultimate gear change (gelding) and down in grade a bit he was a lot better last time. Has a horror gate but good speed to race up on pace. The horse that beat him has won well at the GC since that race. Prepared to think he can keep improving and win here.
