Two meetings to look at this Tuesday, with Tabcorp Park Menangle and Albion Park the focus. Down below are the best bets for the respective programs.
Tabcorp Park Menangle
Best Bet: Race Three Number 9 Aldebaran Ursula
Hopefully short but sweet watch. Very talented three-year-old trotter that resumed here around a month ago. He was a short priced elect then and once he found the front, the $1.20 might as well have been $1.01.
Hoping for $1.50/thereabouts and if so, I think that is value because he looks well above average and has panels on these. Good multi anchor.
Next Best: Race Five Number 9 Rave On Hall
It’ll be heart-in-the-mouth stuff given the manners have been ordinary of late, but if he does put everything together, he is clearly the one to beat. Last couple of runs, he has pretty much broken at the score up and took no competitive part.
Has the gate speed to lead and should he find the front, I think he wins.
Value: Race One Number 1 Lucky Charm
Bit of a throw at the stumps at odds in the opener. Her manners are hit and miss but she is quite capable when she puts it all together. That wasn’t the case two back after an early error. Much better last time out after sitting near the speed.
Pretty thin race this and she does have gate speed.
Best Bet: Race One Number 1 Leap To Fame
He looks pretty smart this guy and should he do everything right, think he’s a great bet to start the meeting. Made an early error on debut and I think it ended up being the difference between winning and losing.
He was excellent in defeat. Should hold a forward spot from the draw and prove awfully hard to run down.
Next Best: Race Two Number 14 Orlando Jolt
On paper, 30m handicap isn’t ideal for the 2138m start, but he should get good cover and a decent drag up into the race.
That was the case when racing here last week and he surged hard late, just missing out on the win. Has the quality and if he’s within range 400m out, he’ll take holding out.
Value: Race Three Number 5 Kwasii
The start will be crucial for his chances. He is a hit and miss and generally only fires when he finds the front, so I’m expecting an aggressive steer from Trent Moffat.
Sat parked last time and just couldn’t sustain the run. If he finds the front here, at around double figures, he’ll run a positive race.
