Australian thoroughbred Tab meetings are today held at Tamworth, Pakenham, Pinjarra Scarpside, Warrnambool and Rockhampton.

TAMWORTH: RACE 4 @ 3:05 PM

Former Godolphin galloper AMULET STREET (1) has done everything but win with eight placings from nine starts and deserves to break through here. Has placed over this journey and will strip fitter second-up from a long spell. Rates highly and expected to be right there when the whips are cracking. ALMORAH (10) improved sharply in her first run for the new stable when a close-up fourth at Gosford. Will find this easier and looks a top-three contender. CIVIL WAR (7) gets 3kg off and drawn to get a soft run from the inside alley. In the mix. ANSELMO (2) has placed five from seven overall and is a must for exotics players. JUST IN REACH (3) has placed three from three and deserves consideration in this.
SELECTIONS: Amulet Street to win.

PAKENHAM: RACE 2 @ 6:15 PM 

SHALILY (11) goes wet and dry and there was a lot to like about her Cranbourne placing racing 2-1. She draws better today and fitter will take beating. FLAME OF VENICE (10) was only beaten 1.9L on debut chasing solidly. Has a soft draw and can improve into the finish. OCEAN CHIEF (3) has been competition in stronger in town and they stack right up. A chance if he can kick-up from the rail. CARLISLE BELLS (9) is an improver from a leading barn and has the blinkers applied first time.
SELECTIONS: Backing Shalily to win.

ROCKHAMPTON: RACE 7 @ 4:50 PM

AERIAL COMBAT (5) won the 60 easily and then was well-backed again and didn't have the best of it this grade rising to the mile. He's trialled well since and fitter can bounce back with the in-form McMahon sticking from the trial. SCENT OF FEAR (7) brings a string of placings this distance range and has the blinkers applied first time. Sits well in the weights and gets another chance. PLANET WARRIOR (2) is a stablemate who resumed in good order in Open grade. He goes well second up and gets Stanley for Swell who goes onto the above. CROCKETT (3) ruins along and has been racing in better company at Doomben. Was a big winner three back this grade at the Sunshine Coast and keep very safe. SELECTIONS: Backing Aerial Combat.

WARRNAMBOOL: RACE 7 @ 4:30 PM

TUVALU (4) is coming off a break. Has excellent fresh credentials and did chase home I'm Thunderstruck when resuming last time. Looks well placed against this lot. Should be hard to beat. ZOLTAN (6) came across from New Zealand and didn't have a lot of luck at Australian debut. Will be better for that run and has to be treated with respect. LORENTE (5) is resuming. Has a good record and did perform well at only previous fresh outing. Worth keeping in mind for multiples. PRINCE OF EAGLES (8) is a lightly-raced newcomer to the Lindsey Smith stable with a good record in the UK. Is certainly one to keep an eye on at first start in Australia.
SELECTIONS: Back Tuvalu to win.

WARRNAMBOOL: RACE 8 @ 5:00 PM

ANGEL ROCK (6) was a Geelong winner in November and two subsequent outings in town were solid efforts for this type of race. Back on home track and should be hard to beat. NORDIC SYMPHONY (3) scored here in late November and hasn't been too far from the money in recent efforts. Narrowly beaten last time and should make a bold bid. THE NEPHEW (9) has had his races well spaced of late. Wasn't that far away in town last time and a forward showing is on the cards. CUBAN STATE (4) followed a Balaklava win with a narrow defeat at Morphettville before disappointing at Sandown last time. Can bounce back in this grade.
SELECTIONS: Back Angel Rock to win.
