There are two meetings to look at on Thursday, with my attention at Redcliffe and Ballarat.

These are my best bets for the respective programs.

Redcliffe

Best bet – Race 1, No. 1: Doolittle Dexter
He’s had a host of chances to get the maiden win out of the way, but I think he’ll get the perfect opportunity here. He ran at Albion Park on Tuesday and just missed when second after getting the box=seat sit. He’s drawn the pole, and I think he’ll lead and prove awfully hard to run down.

Next best bet – Race 3, No. 1: Kurahaupo Gambler
If he can get a cheap time of it in front, he’ll take beating. He was an impressive winner here two back before racing here again. He just went too hard in front, clocking a 58 first half and tiring late when fourth. He’ll lead from the gate, and if he can go a second or two slower in front, he’ll be hard to get past.

Value bet – Race 4, No. 1: Blackjewel
She hasn’t set the world on fire this time in, but I thought her last-start effort at Marburg had merit. She was forced to do it the hard way on speed outside the leader – she only just felt the pinch late. She’s drawn the pole, and I’m hoping she can land the box seat. If that eventuates, she’ll be in with a shout.

Ballarat

Best bet – Race 2, No. 4: No Win No Worries
I’m pretty keen on her here. She flies off the mobile, so I think she can find the front comfortably, which is a great spot to be at this track. She sizzled home when winning three back at Maryborough. Last start at Horsham she was forced to work and battled on strongly when second. She should find the front and a take a power of beating.

Next best bet – Race 8, No. 3: Rocco Americano
It was a big win from him first up at Swan Hill, and I suspect he’ll repeat the dose. He led at a good speed and just kept running, clocking a fast mile rate for what was an ordinary race on paper. He looks like he will go through his grades, and despite a bit more depth here, he should be too good.

Value bet – Race 3, No. 1: Calypso Mistress
I reckon she is worth an each-way ticket, especially if she is able to hold the lead, and with Chris Alford booked to drive, I suspect the tactics will be positive with this girl, who hasn’t set the world on fire in recent times but has drawn well and will likely be leading. She’ll give cheek.

Two meetings to look at on Wednesday, with Shepparton and Tabcorp Park Melton getting my focus.

Shepparton

Best bet: Race 1, Number 2, Delightful Nikky
Thought this was a tricky meeting to sort out with confidence so getting the best bet out of the way in the first via this filly, who has been contesting some strong races in recent times and for the most part has been far from disgraced. This race is very much on the weaker side, should press forward and prove hard to beat.

Next best: Race 2, Number 5, Patsy Valentine
Bit of speed drawn on the front line here, but she looks the best horse in the race on race day form. Ran in the Group ll Home Grown Final last start at Bendigo and ran a super race in defeat when fourth. If she can land on speed, ideally in front, and not spend too many petrol tickets, she’ll take beating.

Value: Race 4, Number 1, Atlantas
Definitely worth an each-way ticket in what looks an even race. He was big odds at Kilmore last time. Got back on the pegs but the gaps appeared and he loomed as a big threat at the top of the straight. Just couldn’t quite finish it off when fourth, but still a game effort. Lands box seat from the draw and only runs well.

Tabcorp Park Melton

Best bet: Race 1, Number 3, Mister McLintock
Former Kiwi that didn’t raced in New Zealand but instead debuts here, and it will be a winning debut. Hasn’t had a trial in Australia but did trial back in August at Winton, a South Island track in NZ, and closed off strongly. Looks a good type and strikes a winnable race.

Next best: Race 3, Number 2, Lalibela
Bursting to win her first race and she gets a golden chance here. Has placed at her last four starts, last three being runner up. Last start led from the pole at Kilmore and was grabbed near the peg. Depth here isn’t as strong so think she leads comfortably and from the front, can dominate proceedings.

Value: Race 2, Number 1, La Bella Figura
Even race on paper with a few chances so I’m happy to back each way the likely leader. Yet to win in five starts but has shown good promise and one thing she does have is gate speed, so from the pole, she’ll have little trouble holding up and running a bold race – hopefully from the front.
