There are two meetings to look at on Tuesday, with Albion Park and Menangle getting my focus.
Best bet – Race 8, No. 7: Uncle Shank
He’s a very smart colt that bolted up here last Tuesday, and I’m confident he’ll repeat the dose despite the outside front line draw. He led from gate four last Tuesday, and once he found the front, it was a pretty painless watch. If he finds the front, which I suspect he will, he wins.
Next best bet – Race 6, No. 5: Kashed Up
He’s similar to Uncle Shank – a smart three-year-old that should prove too good. He looked in a bit of trouble early on last time out but found the box seat eventually. It’s just a matter of getting clear air – once he got it, he was too good. He needs luck from the draw, but if he gets it, he’ll be too good.
Value bet – Race 2, No. 4: Spiders Devil
It’ll be heart-in-mouth stuff given it’s a standing start, but if he gets away cleanly and finds the front, I think he’ll run a cheeky race. His recent form hasn’t been too bad, but I would suggest this is one of the easier races he has contested in some time, so I’m happy to speck at each-way odds.

Best bet – Race 2, No. 8: Aldebaran Ursula
She’s a smart filly that I’m confident can win again. She finished a narrow second at Group l level fresh at Kilmore before returning here to a stand two weeks ago, and she was an impressive winner. She will likely concede a start from the gate, but she has the change-up speed to round them up and win.
Next best bet – Race 5, No. 4: Feels Lika Boss
This is a tricky race, but this guy comes up with a good draw and a significant driver upgrade, with Cam Hart taking over. He’s been plagued by bad gates in recent times, but that all changes here with gate three, and with the driver change, I think he can press forward, sit handy and prove hard to beat.
Value bet – Race 4, No. 2: Full Brother
Overall I don’t think this is a strong race, so I’m happy to speck the first starter for Paul Fitzpatrick. This colt has had had three trials to get ready for start one and each time has looked solid enough to suggest he can run well on debut. He comes up with a soft gate to use too.
