There are two meetings to look at on Tuesday, with Menangle and Albion Park getting my focus.

Below are the best bets for the respective programs.

Menangle

Best bet: Race 7, Number 4, Watchmedazzle
I am keen on this three-year-old to bounce back. He was super in defeat here two back behind a progressive animal in Vincent Van Gone. Then he went to Bankstown and he was disappointing. He is better suited on the bigger track, should find the front and prove hard to get past.

Next best: Race 9, Number 8, Teddy Feels Good
This horse is a talented animal for Jason Grimson and I am confident can make it two from two for the stable. The first run for the stable came here, where he showed really good gate speed and from there, it was a painless watch if you were on. This horse should press forward again, find the front and prove too sharp for them again.

Value: Race 8, Number 4, Mustang Milly
This mare is certainly capable with her best. Her recent efforts in similar races have been more than sound without winning. It is interesting with the draw and what Cameron Hart does. He’ll try and push forward to hold a spot in the first four and with a cheap run in transit, she’ll be dangerous.

Albion Park

Best bet: Race 6, Number 3, Tommy Lincoln
Class will get him home. This horse is a NZ pacer that makes his Australian debut. His last run came on Jewels Day at Cambridge when he was excellent in defeat behind South Coast Arden. He has elite NZ form, proper Group 1 form, and here he is on a Tuesday program. It should be a painless watch.

Next best: Race 9, Number 1, The Rocknroll King
This horse is a former Kiwi who has done little wrong since coming to Australia. He has won two of three, his last two starts being the wins, and each time he has been impressive from off the speed. He showed gate speed first up from the pole, so he holds a forward spot. If he leads and cops no pressure, it’s race over.

Value: Race 2, Number 14, Jansson
I am happy to back this bloke each way at double figures. He has a 30-metre handicap to overcome, but is a brilliant beginner and will be near the lead before too long. His recent runs in similar races have been strong and should he find the front, he’ll run a big race.
