The Watchdog says
๐ŸŽค : DR. KNUCKLES (2) is a track specialist, and he can lead from go to whoa. MAC ROOSTER (3) finds himself in a race which lacks genuine early speed, so he should be able to take over soon after box rise, and he will be carving out time.

The Watchdog says
๐ŸŽค : PADDYโ€™S MARVEL (1) is just about back to his best and he is drawn to lead throughout, while KEEP IT BLACK (1) is very well graded and he can make every post a winner also. LEVI BALE (7) has elite mid race pace, and he should be in the top two from the outset.

Grade 5 Final

๐Ÿ“ Ballarat ๐Ÿ Race 5
๐Ÿ“ 450m โฑ 8:12pm

The Watchdog says ๐ŸŽค: ACTION GIRL (3) should lead and score easily. ZARAโ€™S IVAN (7) is the obvious pick for second, however we have included KANJI KILO (1) and PIRATES PATCH (4) for value.

‘Must Watch Raceโ€™ Preview ๐ŸŽค:

Very strong final and the exciting ACTION GIRL (3) is looking to add to her already impressive record. She comes into this having won eight of nine in blistering fashion and she continues to show terrific box manners and excellent acceleration. ZARAโ€™S IVAN (7) is a member of a hot litter and he put everyone on notice with a scorching 24.93sec heat win. This is his toughest test, but a repeat of that run can see him go close. Fingers crossed the two top elects ping the lids and it will be on from the outset.
