Two meetings to look at on Thursday, with my attention at Albion Park and Penrith. Down below are your best bets for the respective programs.

Albion Park

Best bet: Race Eight Number 2 Skippys Delight
Gets a perfect chance to get a win in this Queensland stint for Rickie Alchin. Hasn’t won a race since arriving from New Zealand but is bursting to win one, having been close up on a number of occasions.

Draws to lead this field up and he’ll prove too good.

Next-best: Race One Number 1 Doolittle Dexter
Looks a race in two, but I’m going with this guy, who has the run under the belt over the first starter, who has trialled well leading in, but this guy did trial well prior to his resumption at Redcliffe where he just looked in need of the run.

He can use gate one to advantage and prove hard to beat.

Value: Race Five Number 1 Just One Good One
Was on him 1×3 last Thursday at Redcliffe and he did the right thing in running third.

He had the suck run behind the speed and battled on well. Gets a similar set up this time around and does have a solid enough record at the track, so 1×3 again looks the option.

Penrith

Best bet: Race Eight Number 3 Sugar For My Honey
Both runs have come at Menangle so dropping a back bit in grade and depth, he should take a power of beating.

Was good in defeat at Menangle last time out when fourth to a smart one in Smaltese. Has the gate speed to find the front and from there, he can dominate proceedings.

Next-best: Race Four Number 2 Marika Springfield
Market watch for sure with this guy, given he is having his first run for Jack Trainor and we know the record has with these cast-offs.

They go from being average to metro class, so with the new camp, it’ll be interesting to see where he lands from the gate, but I’ll bank on the stable getting him right.

Value: Race One Number 1 Ed Mendes
Happy to back this three-year-old 1×3 at double figures. He ran here last Thursday and did a really good job from off the speed to finish second.

If he can use gate one to advantage, he likely lands leaders back and from there, he can be quite dangerous at a good price.

Two meetings to look at on Wednesday, with Tabcorp Park Melton and Shepparton getting my focus.

Melton

Best bet: Race 7, Number 9: Ozzie Playboy
Provided he doesn’t get dragged too far back from the gate, he’s the best on the program. He was massive in defeat last Wednesday at Shepparton after getting a mile back in the run. If he’s within range 400m out, his finale will be too brilliant for his rivals.

Next best: Race 8, Number 1: Duty Bound
Should be on speed throughout and proving hard to beat. Had a suck run behind the speed at Mildura last time out and finished close up when second, beaten under a metre. He’ll be holding the lead from the pole and with that, it’ll take a good performance to run him down.

Value: Race 4, Number 1: Keayang Alex
This lightly raced four-year-old that has only won the one from six, but his recent runs have seen him receive little to no luck. Last time out here, he got copped a bad check and finished tailed off last. Should hold a forward spot from the draw and prove a knockout chance at odds.

Shepparton

Best bet: Race 1, Number 6: Midnight Dancer
I am hoping for handlebars down at the start from the gate in search of the lead because if this filly does find the front, then it is race over. Has done a good job in two career outings and clearly has more scope than her rivals, and has the good recent form. Clearly the one to beat.

Next best: Race 3, Number 3: Barnaby
Fascinating to see what the market does with this first starter. If you’re going off the trials, he should be Winx odds. His recent trials have seen him beat up metro class horses, so for an unraced horse to do that suggests he’s pretty good and if he does run up to the trials, he spanks these.

Value: Race 8, Number 8: Allvictory Hanover
He follows out a fast beginner so should he land leaders back, he’ll take beating at odds. Just got into a tricky spot when racing here just under three weeks ago and couldn’t come on. Gets the suck run this time around and he’s going well. 1×3 for sure at hopefully double figures.
