Seven TAB meetings are held across Australia on this Wednesday at Warwick Farm, Sandown, Stony Creek, Townsville, Ascot, Gawler & Launceston.  

 

Warwick Farm: Race 4 @ 1:10pm

 

Hallelujah Boy to run them along at a good clip. GAULOIS (3) settled a long way back last start in the 1400m Listed Carrington before storming home late to get up for 3rd. Third up form reads three wins from five starts. Loves it wet and his mile stats are rock-solid so he has the perfect profile. SHARED AMBITION (5) is a very promising stayer from the Waller camp resuming from a spell. Raced three times last prep on arrival from the UK for three wins, including a soft first up victory over 1800m at Caulfield. Two recent trials will have him ready to run very well. SMARTEDGE (8) has been freshened up since an eye-catching 4th over 1400m on Magic Millions Day on the Gold Coast. Smart gelding - the ability to run a strong mile in this going off a month-long break is the query. ATTENTION RUN (9) is a handy stayer resuming. Will be better for the run but she is an each-way hope as she enjoys a heavy surface.  SELECTIONS: #3 Gaulois with the race-fitness edge on a heavy track to knock over the favourite.

Gawler: Race 4 @ 4:00pm

 

In The Fast Lane can lead from Free Hand. IN THE FAST LANE (1) led and scored the deserved win in the Oakbank BM58. Has to carry top weight but the claim helps and he looks well-placed again back a bit in trip. FREE HAND (2) peaks and prepared to forgive her latest effort as favourite. Just missed the two before in provincial grade and she’s feared drawn low with the handy claim. RAPID RAISER (3) has been around the mark and was favourite the latest. Needs a good ride from the apprentice. ICE HUNT (9) may be best of the rest.  SELECTIONS: A tough program. # 10 In The Fast Lane represents some value at the each way early quote in an open contest.

 

Townsville: Race 5 @ 5.30pm (AEDT)

 

WALK THE TALK (3) was strong when winning by 2.8L at Bowen last start. Deserved that after placing at his other three runs this time in. Could go on with it. BONDAGE (12) missed by just a head last start after kicking off this campaign with a hat trick of wins. Respect. EXCEEDING ASSASSIN (5) is going well winning his past two outings. Chance again. CHEVAUX (4) didn't really fire at his first North Queensland campaign but may be better acclimatised now. SELECTIONS: Backing #3 Walk The Talk to win.

 

Sandown: Race 6 @ 6:30pm

 

Ellis Park may lead and there are a number behind who can provide some pressure. SHUSH (13) resumed off a Group 3 with a big Maiden win and then went to Caulfield and was a bit unlucky just beaten in stronger than this. Comes to peak and she’s the one they have to beat. GINA LOLA (6) is a Team Hayes improver drawn to advantage and Zahra replaces the apprentice. Rates a hope at a good price. BONS ABROAD (14) resumes for a leading yard and has shown plenty. Owns a trial win and expect a bold return. ELLIS PARK won comfortably here on debut racing on-speed. Keeps Williams who will use the low gate and the early market suggests he's capable of repeating. SELECTIONS: #13 Shush looks a solid wager at the each way quote

 

Launceston: Race 7 @ 8:30pm

 

Geegee Trendsetter to lead from a wall of chasers at a slick tempo. KWAI (7) flew late but just failed to pick up Geegee Trendsetter over 1100m at Hobart last start. Has a fine record here and over a slightly longer trip this evening is perfectly placed to turn the tables. GEEGEE TRENDSETTER (5) had been building to a win and it came last start at Hobart over 1100m. Form at this trip equally as good. Might not get a lot of peace in front but is a fighter. DEBSERAA (3) did a his best work late when runner-up over this course and distance recently. Boasts a 10/16 win record, and 2/2 third up. Strong contender. PERFECT AWARD (4) won last time out but is an each-way chance only dropping back in trip. SELECTIONS: Strong push for #7 Kwai.
