Punters are often behind the eight ball when it comes to their perennial battles with the bookies.
But bettors may have the ‘satchel-swingers’ snookered at Ballarat tonight.
Right on cue, if you’ll excuse the pun, The Watchdog has selected Eight Ball in a Mixed 4/5 over 450 metres.
Prepared at Pascoe Vale South by Philip Smith, Eight Ball looks poised to chalk up his seventh win (with three seconds and four thirds) at his 19th start. The powerful chaser has exited from the ‘check’ alley on three occasions for one win and two thirds.
