Dylanson ($5) has continued to experience huge attention from punters in 2015 Balaklava Cup markets at Ladbrokes.com.au and remains outright favourite ahead of Happy As Hell ($6.50).

Will Dylanson justify favouritism and win the 2015 Balaklava Cup, or will one of his talented rivals find the line in the clear?


Eigelstein ($9)

Posting six wins and eleven minors through only 39 career starts so far, Eigelstein has returned to racing in competitive condition this time, has been charged with carrying only 55.5kgs and offers great value for money at $9 for success in Balaklava Stakes betting markets. Running fourth amongst notable company in the Perfection Fresh Handicap (1500m) on June 27th, the Dubawi gelding progressed to third in the Shoot Out Mile (1600m) before boxing on for a credible fourth in the Listed Winter Challenge (1400m) at Rosehill on August 1st.


Dylanson ($5)

Dylanson has returned to racing in typically competitive form for Phillip Stokes this year and remains a great chance of success in the 2015 Balaklava Cup, and at good odds. Allocated the ideal barrier 4 for this afternoon’s race, the Dylan Thomas gelding posted two black type wins through the recent Autumn Carnival; returning this time for fifth in the Group 3 Spring Stakes (1200m) and fourth in the Listed Penny Edition Stakes (1400m). Confirmed to be partnered by last start hoop Paul Gatt, Dylanson is more than capable of overcoming 59kgs.


Lucky Lucky Lucky ($7.50)

Lucky Lucky Lucky has not been seen at the races since failing to get the trip and ninth in the Group 2 Adelaide Cup (3200m) on March 9th, but has taken huge benefit from his time in the paddock and should lay a great account for himself in the 2015 Balaklava Cup. Having won the Rain Lover Plate (1950m) first-up this year, the Lucky Owners gelding finishing second in each of the Listed Birthday Cup (2032m) and Group 3 Lord Reims (2600m) leading into the Adelaide Cup.
