Four TAB meetings are held across Australia on this Tuesday at Armidale, Geraldton, Hamilton & Mackay.  

 

Newcastle Race 2 @ 1:30pm

 

Men In Tights to run them along at a decent clip. FARETTI (1) raced handy and battled on well to finish a close 3rd when resuming over 1300m at Warwick Farm last start. Was only beaten 1.4 lengths in the Listed Brian Crowley last prep so he has the class to take care of this field. DIVINE ELEVEN (3) made a sustained run to score a comfortable maiden win over 1400m at Kembla last time out. Starting to put it together now and another win would not surprise. FULMINA (5) will be better for the run but has the ability to play a big role first up from a 19-week spell. Boasts a win over subsequent Oaks winner Colette over 1600m at Kembla at the end of last prep. HIGHJACKER (6) wasn't beaten all that far when resuming over 1200m at Kembla recently. Second up form is far better so watch for sharp improvement. SELECTIONS: Load up on #1 Faretti.

Mackay: Race 5 @ 1:25pm

 

Flying Kass can lead from the handy gate. IFYOUKNOWHATIMEAN (8) races handy and improved again winning at Townsville and it was deserved. Races well here and clearly rates to repeat on the 5-day return. FEATHER YOUR NEST (5) settles back but hits the line and go on the nose defeat here two back. Just found the longer trip a touch far the latest. CORPORAL (1) was very plain against Absolute Artie in better grade but the lip defeat prior at this trip was good in stronger than this. Needs a good ride but is a chance to bounce. PAIBLE (11) next best at a price, building on the Maiden win. SELECTIONS: #8 Ifyouknowhatimean is well-placed to keep things rolling. In Race 9, #2 Santisimo should be winning at a much shorter quote and will play both in an all up.



 

Hamilton: Race 2 @ 1:30pm

 

Soleil De Lune gets the opportunity to run them along. SOLEIL DE LUNE (10) was okay as favourite on debut and then was on-pace again placing as favourite at Donald. Peaks for a leading yard with Egan going on and he should be winning. HANDSOME FIGHTER (4) got a lot closer at Werribee two back and was caught deep well-backed here the latest. Draws wide but looks a good hope first go at the mile. AMERICAIN TYPHOON (1) resumed in good order in the same race and has more to give. NUMBER ONE STAR (6) resumes with some gear changes and has shown enough to suggest he's a chance. SELECTIONS: Keen on #10 Soleil De Lune.



 

Armidale: Race 7 @ 4:10pm

 

St Anton will slide over from a wide gate to take it up. LORD MAGNUSSEN (6) flashed home to just miss in a Class 2 over this distance at Grafton two starts back. Wasn't beaten far at Coffs Harbour last time over this trip in a Class 2. Looks very hard to toss today dropping back in grade. ROY'S COMMAND (3) has hit the line well and been beaten narrowly at his last two appearances, both over 1600m. Genuine gelding who doesn't win too often but will be hard to hold out again despite coming back in trip. ST ANTON (4) just whacked away to finish midfield when resuming over this distance at Tamworth recently. Might need more ground at this stage but could sneak a top-three finish with added fitness. I'M JACKO (13) was ridden closer to the speed and fought on gamely to win by a long neck over 1300m at Lismore last start. Not a regular in the winner's circle so treat with caution. MICK'S REGRET (15) has been about the money of late and is worth each-way consideration. SELECTIONS: #6 Lord Magnussen looks an inviting bet at the each way quote.
