    There are three TAB meetings across Australia this Tuesday, with my main focus being at Rockhampton where there are a couple of things worth keeping your eyes on. Here are the five best bets for Tuesday.

    Bet One – Each-Way – Armidale Race Seven, Number 7 Youwaitandsee
    Very even open handicap but given the way the stable went with their resuming runners on Friday at Coffs, this bloke is worth an each-way investment. He’s a quality galloper who is a proven performer in Brisbane at city level who is 2-0-2 from seven fresh runs.

    Resumes with no trials, but in his last three fresh runs he has savaged the line from the back, a pattern which suits Armidale.

    Bet Two – Each-Way – Kilmore Race Four, Number 10 Equilite
    I’ll be very interested to see what they put up as opening price. Simon Morrish trains this runner and she is first up off an average debut run at Geelong in June, but that race has produced four winners. Jumped out at Ballarat a couple of weeks back and made some high-quality Darren Weir runners look like camels. If she brings that here, she goes very close.

    Bet Three – Win – Rockhampton Race One, Number 3 Aetherius
    Still a maiden, but on form, this should be win number one. Overall form from his four career outings just reads far superior to anything engaged here, including a placing at Doomben. His pattern is to get back and wind up, so the Rocky 1100m looks perfect given the 600m straight gives him plenty of time. Only bad luck beats him.

    Bet Four – Win – Rockhampton Race Three, Number 3 Van Winkel
    Another that should win barring bad luck. Stephen Rundle trains this son of Magnus, who resumed over this track/distance a tick under two weeks ago where he got back from the wide gate and motored to the line but just gave away the head start behind Bia Tychie. Will sit much closer in the run from the draw and the 3kg claim for promising apprentice Elyce Smith is an even bigger tick.

    Bet Five – Win – Rockhampton Race Four, Number 1 Drayman
    Garnett Taylor doesn’t come to his old stomping ground too often but when he does, he wins, with a strike rate of 37 per cent last 12 months. Drayman should continue this. He’s been given a five-week freshen up since running a tiring fourth over 1200m at the Sunny Coast behind Dapper One. That form is outstanding given Dapper One went on to measure up in town. Drayman should lead from the gate and it’ll take a good one to beat him.
