Ballarat R1 No.3 - TALES OF WAR
Has been beaten by two average rides of late since returning to the racetrack in early April, will certainly go forward and with that in mind he presents as the horse to beat. Has finished on the heels of better than this and with the map to suit he'll be hard to beat.

Ballarat R4 No.3 - INFERENCE
Went brilliantly on debut at Sandown behind a really good one in Highland Beat, that horse has since come out and gone down narrowly in Stakes company. Fancy from the right draw/leading he'll be mighty hard to beat, anything +$2.50 is value on my book considering he's an improver.

Ballarat R5 No.2 - LITEN PRINSESSA
Lovely filly who won a really slick race at Caulfield in late October of 2015, beat home Anaphora (genuine Group-class filly) and then tried to make ground against the pattern three weeks later here at Ballarat. Flies fresh and secures the inside draw, will position up much handier mid-race and be far too good.

Sunshine Coast R2 No.10 - COUGAR
Gets the gun J.Orman on for her return this afternoon, went around at a short quote on debut in a $60,000 race but failed to fire. She did trial leading in to that performance and the fact she hasn't been seen publicly is no real concern on my end. Will roll to the front and simply be too good/classy. Good horse that will measure up to stakes company this campaign.
