Two meetings to look at on Tuesday, with my focus at Tabcorp Park Menangle and Shepparton. Down below is best bets for the respective programs.

Tabcorp Park Menangle

Best bet: Race 2, Number 9, Tough Love

One of the better trotting three-year-old fillies going around and all things being equal, she’ll be too good. Two from two this time in, both wins coming at this track when short odds and duly saluting in dominant fashion. Should find the front despite drawing wide and be much too good for them.

Next-best: Race 3, Number 2, Okay Gringo

Only having start three and is a maiden, but he has a fair bit on this lot. If you were on his back two weeks ago, apologies for bringing up the nightmare. He should have won but had no luck in the straight, not helped by an ordinary drive. He is clearly the best horse in the race and hopefully is driven like that and not a drive relying on luck.

Value: Race 7, Number 2, Breivika

Small 1×3 speck at odds. This mare probably doesn’t have the class of some of these, but she gets a kind map, likely getting leaders back and a great chance to run top three. Needed the run fresh at Penrith before spanking them last start at Bathurst. With a soft trip, she’s a definite place chance and a sneaky winning chance.

Shepparton

Best bet: Race 4, Number 7, Locksley Lover

Clean getaway and it should be a painless watch for this four-year-old, who resumed at this track just under three weeks ago where he found the front and from there, he gave nothing else a look in, winning comfortably in an impressive return. Tricky draw, but I think he has a fair bit on these in class.

Next-best: Race 5, Number 1, Mea Culpa

This gelding loves to race from the front so drawn one with Chris Alford to drive, the intentions will be clear to try and lead throughout. Had a clear excuse at Warragul last start, racing with a flat tyre, so he did a really good to finish third. Hasn’t won in a while, but I think he gets a great chance.

Value: Race 6, Number 8, Daylight At Dawn

Great each-way bet. He has had clear excuses his past couple, pulling very hard in the run at Cobram last time and the start prior, he broke stride and lost all hope. Had this draw three back and did no work before getting clear and flashing to win, so hoping something similar can eventuate.
