Two meetings to look at on Tuesday, with Tabcorp Park Menangle and Albion Park getting my attention. Down below is best bets for the respective programs.
Best bet: Race 1, Number 5, Itsmeandyou
Nice looking trotter for Matty Craven. Debuted at the track last week where her manners were a bit scratchy but lobbed 1/1 and once got she got clear air, she let down nicely and was an impressive winner. She has the gate speed to lead and take running down.
Next-best: Race 4, Number 4, Charli Rose
I like her here. She was very game in defeat on debut at Goulburn given she copped pressure in front and was entitled to drop away but she found and stuck on very gamely when second. Has the gate speed to cross them early, find the front and for an in-form camp, she’ll take beating.
Value: Race 6, Number 1, Master Gouda
I think he is worth a speck each way in what looks a competitive race. Did a stack of work at Goulburn last time and did a remarkable job to stick on like he did when second. Drawn much better this time around, he has gate speed to lead and potentially in front, he’ll give a sight.
Best bet: Race 2, Number 3, Dance In The Sun
Quality filly that I think can resume a winner. Produced some good numbers last prep, ending the campaign with a down the track effort in the Queensland Oaks, which was an end of prep run. Quiet trial to get ready but she has a class edge and I think will be too good for them.
Next-best: Race 1, Number 1, Mark Of Integrity
I think he’ll take beating in what looks a thin sort of race. Resumed here where he drew wide, they took their medicine and dragged back for cover and he wasn’t too far away in a solid return. Drawn much better this time around, he can sit much closer in the run and prove hard to beat.
Value: Race 7, Number 1, Rosehill Magic
The start will be crucial for this mare. If she can get away cleanly, she has the early tempo to lead them up and give a massive sight. Her manners can be hit and miss but with a clean jump, she should find the front, roll along and give them something to chase.
