After an astonishing Sunday, where we cleaned them out on Singapore Cup day, we quickly followed it up with (feast/bonanza) at Happy Valley on Wednesday night in Hong Kong.

This weekend Jig puts his full focus on Victoria's stand alone meeting this Saturday at Ballarat in Victoria, for the running of the Ballarat Cup.

Jig has identified 4 or 5 runners on the support card that he believes are stand out players this weekend, plus one on Friday night at Mooney Valley to build the Saturday kitty!  

Once again, the BetU fans can buckle up and back jig's Best Bets with some real confidence and continue on there winning ways! 🥷👊


🟦 RACE 1.

One of the better bets all spring carnival lines up in this opening race on the card .... The American bred 5YO mare in LIGHTHOUSE for the ever powerful Maher/Eustace stable.

She was outstanding first up on heavy ground at Kyneton, especially when you take into account that her record in America was all on "Good ground"!! God help them if she grows a leg on a firmer surface! They wont get near her!..

FRANKIE PINOT has been in outstanding form this preparation and the obvious danger to the grey mare. He does come into this race 8th up this campaign though and i tend to think the mare wasn't fully screwed down for her first up performance and has far more upside..


#4 LIGHTHOUSE*** win bet ($2.3)

🟦 RACE 3.

I think the Maher/Eustice stable might have a pretty handy filly here in FLY NICE. She jumped out nicely at Caulfield earlier in the month and has no doubt been a long term goal for the horse to kick off her career.. She shows good early pace and looks a lovely, athletic youngster who no doubt is very well educated.

The Maher/Eustace stable could well walk away with 5-6 winners on this program and i envisage this girl being either there 2nd or 3rd winner for the meeting already!!.


#11 FLY NICE win bet ($3.4)

🟦 RACE 4.

I thought DUCHESS OF DORSET went terrific at her first look up the Flemington when running 3rd to the airborne 'It'sourtime'.. That horse ran the quickest closing splits of the entire meeting on Stakes Day, so with that in mind this mare has ran a cracking race. The fact that she looked to get a tad lost up the straight and goes back around a corner here are also big positives along with coming back to mares grade in this. Meech will look to lead and dictate them here and she will take a power of catching if she gets a nice first 600m in the race.


#6 DUCHESS OF DORSET win bet ($2.45)

🟦 RACE 10.

The Maher/Eustace stable can finish off with another winner here in MARINE ONE. This talented 3YO was thrown in the deep end last time in the G1 Coolmore, where he was outclassed, but this is a big drop in class here and he is only 4th up this campaign... The stable have improved this guy lengths since crossing over from the Kennewell stable and he wouldnt be here if he didnt come through his last run well. From gate 3 he will do no work in running and the 1100m trip is ideal for him at this stage of his career/campaign. He looks awfully hard to beat and a good each way bet at the $4.


#7 MARINE ONE each way ($4)
