Four TAB meetings are held across Australia on this Tuesday at Gosford, Quirindi, Ballarat & Broome.  


Gosford: Race 8 @ 4:55pm


They will sizzle early on here with four or five flyers engaged. SEBRING EXPRESS (5) will enjoy a lovely trail behind the crackerjack tempo and she is ready to fire after three runs back. Finds this a lot easier than her last start 6th over 1200m at Rosehill. Twice a winner here from two visits, and is at her best over today's journey. ADVANCE PARTY (14) won her maiden over 1000m here two runs back then didn't have the turn of foot required over this same trip at Goulburn last time when coming off a one-month let-up. Fitter today and a lightweight hope. MAROCH (2) is a new acquisition for the Mark Newnham stable, resuming from a 21-week break. Didn't miss a cheque in four Tasmanian runs during the maiden prep. Hard to line up but is trialling well so has to be respected. EVER SO NATURAL (1) has a tremendous first up record so don't leave him out of calculations. SELECTIONS: #5 Sebring Express an each-way special.

Quirindi: Race 3 @ 2:10pm


A muddling pace early without a noted leader in the race. CHAMBERMAID (8) copped a check and lost momentum before coming again to be beaten just half a length over 1400m at Tamworth last start. That run followed a five-week let-up so strips fitter this time. Crying out for the mile and will be extremely hard to hold out. VEGAREIGN (7) was easy in betting and did a fair job to be beaten just 3.5 lengths on debut over 1300m at Scone last time out. Will benefit from that experience and over more ground in a weaker maiden comes into calculations. LORD BYRON (5) worked home well to finish 3rd at Cessnock recently over 1350m. Will be more effective at this trip. TAROBA (6) was a better run last time and is worth considering. SELECTIONS: Very keen on #8 Chambermaid. The 2nd, 3rd and 4th picks have raced 31 times for just four placings between them.


Ballarat: Race 3 @ 2:30pm


Inverary Castle and Aandenking look the speed. INVERARY CASTLE (5) led here on debut missing a nose. Didn’t get it easy and should be winning this with the extra fitness and John Allen replacing the apprentice. GATSBY'S GIRL (9) finished the race off on debut and will be better for it. Gets the rail and expect the rise in trip to suit. GRACIOUS GARCON (2) improved his figures at Sale over the mile. Back 200m, but has claims. AANDENKING (8) will run along and no surprise if she sticks on better today. SELECTIONS: #5 Inverary Castle impressed on debut and maps well. Like #6 Design Rouge in Race 7, but he’s a but short to tip. 


Broome: Race 6 @ 6:30pm


Jelani Express to lead from Jackanory, Realise Potential and Well Spoken Man. JELANI EXPRESS (6) just keeps winning heavily-backed. It was comfortable the latest and he rates to keep things rolling with the weight drop. JACKANORY (4) peaks off Darwin form and go on the close-up effort this grade two back. He draws to run along and is an each way chance racing first time the venue. WELL SPOKEN MAN (8) rates well and is knocking on the door. He should clear the gate okay and gets another chance. GONE AND GOT IT (3) is also going well, and he equalled his best effort winning third-up. ROGER THE ROMAN (1) should be ready to fire third-up and has the ability. SELECTIONS: #6 Jelani Express should see out the extra 100m and win again.
