Two meetings to look at on Tuesday, with Tabcorp Park Menangle and Albion Park getting my focus. The best bets for the respective programs are down below.

Tabcorp Park Menangle
Best bet: Race 4 Number 3 Ball Park
I’m confident he can make it 2/2 for the new camp. the first run for Munday saw him get the dream sit behind the speed here last Tuesday and once he got clear air in the straight, away he went and he was dominant. He has gate speed so think he finds the front and should prove too good.

Next-best: Race 1 Number 2 Florencita
If she puts it all together, she can take this out. She was quite good on debut, but in two subsequent runs, she has galloped and brought her worst behaviour. She has shown enough to suggest she can hold the front and if she does everything right, she can win.

Value: Race 5 Number 1 Vinny Chase
He’s worth a speck each way at the odds. He has had no luck with barriers in recent runs but that all changes here given he draws gate one. He was excellent from a bad spot last time out. He has the draw to use gate speed so with that, he’ll only run well here.

Albion Park
Best bet: Race Five Number 2 General Montana
A former Kiwi who should make a winning account down under at start two for the Graham camp. His Australian debut came here just under two weeks ago and he did a pretty good job in defeat from a sticky draw, far from disgraced in defeat. He draws much better this time around and should come on from the resumption.

Next-best: Race 6 Number 1 Feels Lika Boss
I like him a lot here. HE ran here on Friday night when leading throughout and he was strong to the line in getting the job done. It’s interesting that he backs up so soon, but he comes up with a perfect draw here to use gate speed and overall, the depth here isn’t overly strong to my eye.

Value: Race 8 Number 1 Intransit
We were on this guy when he won back in January at a decent price, getting the suck run behind the speed and for the first time since that win, he comes up with a soft run draw from the pole. He has enough gate speed to hold up and then get the box seat run. If that indeed does eventuate, he’ll run a big race at odds.
