Ballarat - Race 3 2:00pm AEDT
Payoff looks like a horse that will develop into a genuine 1000 metres specialist and she returned to the races with a close third at Pakenham. A repeat of that performance would make him very difficult to beat this afternoon and she makes her own luck right on the speed.
Ballarat - Race 4 2:30pm AEDT
Paradise Cove has been sent to Melbourne after performing fairly without winning in his first two race starts in Sydney. This is a horse that Gai Waterhouse has clearly had some issues with, but her stable is flying in Melbourne at the moment and Beau Mertens is arguably the form jockey in Victoria.

Volatile Mix returned to the races in what has already been a fairly strong form race and this is a genuine step-back in class. He really should be able to improve off that first-up effort and if he does that he will be incredibly tough to beat.
Ballarat - Race 6 3.35pm AEDT
Go Public raced in better company than this last preparation and he is a horse that looks to have a fair amount of talent. His recent jump-out suggests that he is very forward for his return to racing and it really would not surprise if he goes to another level this preparation.
