News Corp form analyst Brad Waters runs the rule over Friday’s Ballarat Synthetic meeting.
TOKELAU DRIFT (Race 6 No.3 – $4.20)
Tokelau Drift raced on the pace before scoring well on this track last time. He’s up in grade for this but is a promising type that can win again.
ALPINE ACE (Race 2 No.1 – $5.50)
Had every chance but outsprinted on this track second-up. Back to 1100m for this and could improve ridden further back off the speed.
ZIAVERA (Race 7 No.11 – $3.90)
Ziavera has thrived since getting onto the Ballarat Synthetic track for her last three runs. She’ll get every chance from barrier four and should measure up on Friday.

JUST WISHING (Race 8 No.13 – $7)
Just Wishing raced on the speed and fought on well over this trip last time. She’s drawn to roll forward again and always runs on the synthetic tracks.
Damien Thornton starts the day with the ride on a $1.15 favourite and can post multiple wins at Friday’s meeting. ENGLISH RIVIERA (Race 1 No.5 – $1.15), SPIRIT MAKER (Race 3 No.12 – $34), SHAMANIC (Race 4 No.7 – $23), DESIRED (Race 6 No.4 – $7.50), HEYWOOD (Race 7 No.7 – $5.50), AROUND THE HORN (Race 8 No.5 – $13).
