RACING WRAP: today's Ballarat gallops selections

MISSED out on the quaddie at Flemington yesterday, but it was a blow out.

One of our best bets Lord of Brazil did get up – favourite but still paid $5.50. Great value.

The Jim Mason-trained Snow Cover is one to follow after excellent fifth in the same event.
