Jason Bonnington's Preview for Ballarat

Sat, 18 Jan 2020

The Summer of Glory is finally here and is has never felt bigger with the Oaks heats joining the Derby heats over a traditional long trip to supplement another magnificent addition of the Ballarat Cup. Heat night cards are always a minefield and I expected to play very conservatively with this Game Plan but as it's turned out I'm having a genuine dip. Self Assured and Be Happy Mach have the biggest roles to play here but Pacifico Dream is pretty important as well. Regardless of how the night plays out from a punting perspective you should sit back, soak it in and just relish watching such brilliant horseflesh take to the track tonight.

Track information

The Moral

Race 2 - No. 6 Maajida

She's first up and it's her first time over the long trip but by every other measure this girl looks a gilt-edged lock.

Take On

Race 4 - No. 2 Keayang Livana

There are a few I'd risk tonight but this girl is one; she's just too quirky and inexperienced to be as short as she is a in a pretty strong affair.
