Two meetings to look at on Tuesday, with Tabcorp Park Menangle and Albion Park the focus.

The best bets for the respective programs are down below.

Tabcorp Park Menangle

Best bet: Race 3 Number 8 Right Moves
I’m confident she can get back into the winners’ list. She was excellent in defeat two weeks ago here. She also did a power of work in the run yet fought on really well when second to Aldebaran Revani, who was in proper beast mode in winning. No horse of that quality here, so Right Moves can bounce back.

Next-best: Race 1 Number 4 Skyzrclearnsunny
A bludger of a name to type out, but she’s got the ability to take this out. A former Kiwi mare that makes her Australian debut for the Morris camp. She showed good promise when racing across the ditch and has been tuned up for this with a solid trial at the track. Looks a race in two, but I’m keen on this girl.

Value: Race 5 Number 1 I’m Bills Last
I’m giving this colt a shout at a price. I’d be forgiving of his run here last Tuesday. He was forced to sit parked for the trip and that hard run told as he tried to finish down the track. He has a much better gate to use this time around and if he is able to hold a forward spot, he can win this.

Albion Park

Best bet: Race 2 Number 11 Aladdin Sane
If he brings his best manners, he just wins and should be $1.50. The start will be crucial to his chances because his manners are terrible more often than not, feral even. But the engine under the hood is that of a Saturday-class horse, so he’ll just win if he steps away cleanly.

Next-best: Race 5 Number 7 Hemsworth
It took a little while for him to get win number one down under but it finally came here last Tuesday. He bullied his way to the front from the identical draw and he spanked them in a brilliant performance of sustained speed. If he does something similar here effort-wise, he’ll win again.

Value: Race 1 Number 2 Okanagan
A small field but he’s value. He didn’t really fire a shot last prep, but did take on the older horses a few times, which I found odd given he couldn’t beat his own age. But he does have quality about him when right, he is against his own age and if he leads, he’ll take catching.
