Australian thoroughbred Tab meetings are today held at Canterbury, Port Macquarie, Orange, Cranbourne, Stawell, Sunshine Coast, Mackay, Narrogin and Hobart.

CANTERBURY: RACE 8 @ 9:30 PM

JUNGLE BOOK (8) looks the value runner in this. Will strip fitter third-up from the spell and has placed four from five around this tricky circuit. Has won up to 2000m and on all going and should be right there at the business end. KUTAYHA (3) is an exotics player's dream only missing the top four once in 17 outings and that was a fifth last time out. Strips fitter, gets Bowman and draws low. Plenty of ticks. ATLANTIC KING (4) has been building up towards another win and must be kept safe. MACCOMO (14) has placed four from four over this trip and gets in well at the weights with the claim. In the mix. CANYONERO (5) best of the rest from the low draw.
SELECTIONS: Jungle Book each-way.

PORT MACQUARIE: RACE 8 @ 5:25 PM

MILLENNIUM JEWEL (9) has been thereabouts in all four runs since joining the new stable and strikes a winnable affair here. Gets plenty of weight relief with the 3kg claim and gets her chance to break through in a race like this. SEETHING SEB (7) will be at peak fitness for this and drawn to get a soft run from gate two. Looks a top-three player. SASIL ESROH (11) placed over this journey last time out and is one for the multiples. OPAL GLORY (2) will be rock-hard fit and may earn some minor money. KINGDOM OF GOLD (6) is a massive market watch on debut.
SELECTIONS: Millennium Jewel to win.

ORANGE: RACE 1 @ 1:35 PM

CINQUE TORRI (2) went under by 3.2L as favourite at this track and trip last time out after back-to-back wins prior to that. Back in grade with the blinkers applied first time today. Should go to the front and be hard to run down. THE DROVER (1) finished 1.8L off the winner in the same race as Cinque Torri last start and draws much better today. Goes well this track and trip and Buckley sticks which is a great push for his chances. Blinkers go on again and he'll make his presence felt. MANADRIA (4) won well two back before pulling up with a poor recovery rate after his poor performance last start. Gets in light after the 2kg claim and won't be far away. Dean Mirfin-trained duo SUPERGAZE (8) and KIMMYLEE (5) haven't won for some time but have run well here previously. They're worth keeping safe.
SELECTIONS: Expecting Cinque Torri to bounce back and win.

CRANBOURNE: RACE 8 @ 9:45 PM

MIDWEST (4) has won both runs in and keeps improving. In a top barn and keeps the handy 3kg claim. She will ride the speed and can make the hat-trick. TSUNAMI SAM (5) resumes and is also in good hands. Led and won in NZ his only start bringing two big trial wins. The colt looks to have plenty of ability and the late market will tell plenty. PRINCE OF MERCIA (8) wasn't far away at Adelaide off the 1.3L defeat at Bendigo. Peaks and winning rider Kah is reunited. Gets the blinkers again and weight relief and is a winning chance. ABSEILER (6) has been in need of the two runs in. This fellow was just beaten in a Blue Diamond preview a year ago and is one to include at odds.
SELECTIONS: Midwest sets a decent standard.

SUNSHINE COAST: RACE 3 @ 6:38 PM

THELWELL (1) went a bold race last start at Doomben when racing three wide and coming from seventh at the turn to finish second of nine runners at Doomben in a Group 3 event over 1200m at odds of $10. Will appreciate the easier field here and rates as the runner to beat. Blinkers go on for the first time. YANKEE RIVER (3) was only seventh at Doomben last time out over 1200m after a slow start but gets into a field which suits her better. One of the main dangers. MILANO BOOM (6) is a two year old filly on debut out of a Listed winning mare who can surprise, watch the markets on this runner. Blinkers on for the first time. LICENCED AND READY (5) won a recent trial and although she finished last of five runners here last start when on debut can fall into a place at odds.
SELECTIONS: Thelwell looks thrown in to win here.

SUNSHINE COAST: RACE 4 @ 7:08 PM

WINSIDE (7) fought on strongly when finishing fourth of nine runners here over 1000m last start which followed a neck second at Gold Coast over 900m when trying to lead all the way. Hard to ignore his winning chances based on recent runs. AIR SPIRIT (6) is having his third run back from a spell after coming from 11th at the turn last start to finish fifth over 1000m at this track. Has won four races from 12 starts at this track and is one of the leading hopes. MORT DOYLE (3) is having his second run back from a spell and should strip a lot fitter following a last start third of seven at Gold Coast. Winner of four races from 14 previous starts here and is a strong chance to add to that record. INVINCIBLE LAD (2) is fresh-up following an all of the win over 1000m at Tamworth beating seven rivals home. Smart enough to trouble this field fresh-up.
SELECTIONS: Mort Doyle we like each-way.

MACKAY: RACE 8 @ 5:10 PM

YUAN FEN (6) was beaten a nose at long odds when fresh-up here last start over 1200m after getting checked at the start and again with 100m to run. Will strip a lot fitter today and with a clear run should prove hard to beat. BUSTER MOON (3) is racing third-up today from a spell and following a last start fourth of 10 runners over 1200m when leading into the home straight will strip a lot fitter. Should appreciate the extra 100m in distance today having won once from four starts over that trip. DUSKY DAMSEL (5) wasn't that far away last start at Townsville when coming from ninth at the turn to finish fifth of 14 runners over 1200m. Should be right there at the finish. CHAMPAGNE AT DAWN (1) has won three races and placed three times here from nine starts including a victory two back over 1300m when defeating 10 rivals. Can return to winning form in this field.
SELECTIONS: Yuan Fen we like here.

NARROGIN: RACE 4 @ 3:50 PM

IZZY MAY (4) was out-graded two runs in town before coming here and recording an overdue win. Has more weight today but looks capable of repeating. SAX ON QUE (3) has just gone under the last two as favourite with the latest at Albany in stronger class. Has a handy 1.5kg claim and should go close. BOYISH (1) led here second-up and folded late beaten 2.2L. That was a much improved effort and fitter he can't be ruled out. BRAVE CONTENDER (2) resumes and will use the rail. It's been a long time between wins but he won't be far away if presented forward.
SELECTIONS: Going with Izzy May.

HOBART: RACE 1 @ 11:22 AM

PIIINK BEAUTY (8) made a very promising debut and should be even better for that experience, after the 3kg claim she looks the one to beat. ELMAJAY (6) is another that looked smart on debut and has won a trial since then. Winkers added and she looks the main threat to the top selection. BOLD INSTINCT (1) was fair on debut but would have come on with that run and from the handy draw will be right in the finish. FROLAND (2) didn't really know much on debut and only picked up the bit late to finish fourth. He has had a trial since his last start effort and won't be far away. Include in all multiples.
SELECTIONS: Piiink Beauty win bet.
