Two meetings to look at on Tuesday, with Tabcorp Park Menangle and Albion Park the focus. Down below is best bets for the respective programs.
Tabcorp Park Menangle
Best Bet: Race Five Number 8 Under Worked
Class should get him home. Ran in a similar race here last Tuesday where he drew wide, like he does here. Restrained for cover and he unleashed a powerful finishing burst to win and win well.
This race here is not much harder and despite another tricky draw, is clearly the one to beat.
Next Best: Race Nine Number 2 Titian Raider
Progressive three year old for Harry Martin who will prove hard to beat against these. Did work from the wide gate here last Tuesday and despite being one of the first off the bit, he found plenty under pressure and was too good. Drawn much better this week, he can find the front and give them something to catch.
Value: Race One Number 4 Kyvalley Boomerang
I would want $7-$8 minimum before betting on him because he is running well without winning.
I’d be inclined to back him 1×3 because this is his right level, and he’s generally pretty safe from the stand, a good beginner, so potentially can find the front and on a likely testing track, that’ll be the spot to be.
Best Bet: Race Seven Number 6 The Hervey Bay
Gee I hope it is handle bars down from Pete McMullen at the start. Aggressive steer, he’ll find the front I’d suggest and take a power of beating. Did a good job here on Friday from the second row draw and just missed out on the win. He’s racing well, can press forward and run a super race from in front, hopefully.
Next Best: Race One Number 10 Kraze
He can be hit and miss, but if he does everything right, it’ll be thank you linesmen and thank you ball boys. He was a dominant winner here on Friday, making the mid race move to find the front and from there, it was a painless watch.
You should get a decent price given the 30m handicap over 2138 and not 2647. Still, the one to beat.
Value: Race Four Number 1 Corey William
Can have a small 1×3 bet on him at big odds. The way he has come back, you’d probably suspect he will just about be the rank outsider, but he is a horse who does race best when leading and from the pole, that scenario could well eventuate. If he does hold the front, think he’ll give a sight.
