Punters have so far rallied around consistent South Australian metropolitan runner Dylanson; seeing the gelding in from odds of $7 to current figure as clear market mover and tied $6.50 favourite alongside Happy As Hell.

Positing seven wins and as many minors through 26 career starts so far, Dylanson posted several typically impressive results for Phillip Stokes through the recent Autumn Carnival; winning each of the Listed CS Hayes Memorial Cup (1600m) and Listed City Of Adelaide Stakes (1400m) most notably.

Having steadily built to the task in placing fifth in the Group 3 Spring Stakes (1200m) and fourth in the Listed Penny Edition Stakes (1400m) so far this time, the Dylan Thomas gelding will be partnered by last start hoop Paul Gatt and is more than worth consideration for a Balaklava Cup bet at current odds.

Happy As Hell ran on for third in the Louis Polgar & Jason Vance Handicap (1400m) first-up on August 8th, and should have taken priceless condition from the hit-out ahead of the 2015 Balaklava Cup.

Claiming five wins and five minors from 22 competitive starts, the Savoire Vivre gelding clearly needed the run when returning this year for tenth in a Flemington minor over 1420m, but almost responded in the best way possible when finishing a close third in the Listed Kilmore Cup (1600m).

Happy As Hell will leave from the ideal barrier 5 in the Balaklava Cup and will carrying a very manageable 54kgs.

Lucky Lucky Lucky is sure to receive a gem of a ride from leading hoop Kerrin McEvoy on Wednesday and currently figures as sole occupant of the second line of 2015 Balaklava Cup betting at a quote of $7.

Running third in the Listed Tattersall’s Cup (2400m) in his last start for Steve Engelbrecht on New Year’s Day, the Lucky Owners gelding charged home to win the Rain Lover Plate (1950m) in his first start for Tony McEvoy on January 31st; progressing to second place finishes in each of the Listed Birthday Cup (2032m) and Group 3 Lord Reims (2600m) most notably.

Having run third in a talent-rich Gawler barrier trial on August 21st, the Lucky Lucky Lucky appears primed for a competitive first-up run but will need some luck in transit from barrier 11.
