Seven TAB meetings are held across Australia on this Sunday at Ballarat, Nowra, Sunshine Coast, Kalgoorlie, Murray Bridge, Devonport and Armidale.
Ballarat: Race 5 @ 3:10pm
Alsvin looks the leader in the small field. This race will become tactical with the small field. COMING AROUND (1) had been in good form this preparation prior to finding Group 2 WFA company too tough last start. He has the necessary turn of foot to figure in the finish if it turns into a sprint home. ALSVIN (2) is the likely leader in the race and could take running down out in front. His form is sound and he could be value. BARRY THE BAPTIST (3) is better over slightly further and is likely to find these too sharp. CAPE RICHARDS (5) is better suited to something easier. SELECTION: Siding with #1 Coming Around to take out the Gold Nugget.

Murray Bridge: Race 3 @ 2:45pm
Strong pace with Eight Over Eight and Boudoir leading the way. ZOIST (12) draws out but they will run along at that shouldn't prove a problem. He presents off two close-up efforts at the Victorian provincials and should be winning this for the leading yard. MUFFLA (8) had trialled well and did a good job placing here on debut. Draws out and will be improved but runs into a good one. BIARCHI (13) resumed for the new yard off a Group 3 and didn't have the best of it racing a bit new. She has more to give and should go much better today. YEELANNA (11) enjoyed the dry track missing a nose at Gawler and long odds and will be right in it with a repeat of that. The outside gate makes it hard today. SELECTION: Backing #12 Zoist to win.
Kalgoorlie: Race 3 @ 4:36pm
Expecting Blooms to find the lead but there will be pressure over this journey. MANHATTAN MONEY (1) seeks the hat-trick and keeps getting better. It was easy this grade the latest and despite the weigh rise and sticky gate she clearly rates to go on with it for the leading yard. DANCE COCKEY (8) was okay resuming in town and then improved again placing at Northam. Draws well and is a player with the extra fitness. LITTLE HERCULES (5) keeps holding his form and won't be far away with a good ride from the 3kg claimer. BLOOMS (7) led and folded up late against Manhattan Money the latest and is a capable galloper who will stick on better over the shorter sprint. SELECTION: Expecting #1 Manhattan Money to prove too good again.
Sunshine Coast: Race 6 @ 3:55pm
Expecting Bohemian Boom, I Am Sumi and I Am Superior to find the lead but plenty of pressure behind them over this journey. YOURJOKINGME RIGHT (16) won't get a better opportunity. He was the lone market threat behind Weona Smartone here last Friday and had his back right until the sprint went on. He was beaten 4L but there was a similar margin back to third. Holds nice scope. Draws pole again and the rise in trip could be what he needs. DANEZEL (1) is on debut for Heathcote/Thompson. He's had three solid trials to learn the ropes. Will get a nice smother from the good draw. Big threat. KARAYER (12) is drawn awkwardly but does have talent. In good hands and watch the market. LET'S BOOM (7) for the multiples. SELECTION: #16 Yourjokingme Right is poised to strike.
Nowra: Race 5 @ 3:45pm
No obvious leader here. A few sit handy but lacks any real early pressure. LAND AHOY (10) bolted in on debut at Scone. Fair to say she didn't beat much but being by Dundeel over that distance it was impressive to see. She resumed at Newcastle three weeks ago and was warming to the task late behind Bucharest. Form out of that has stood up well. She'll lap up this distance and has a touch of class on her side. The testing material. FIRST LADY (3) should be hitting her straps fourth-up. Made strong improvement when beaten a long head by Balonne at Wagga last start. ART OF EXCELLENCE (1) hasn't won for almost four years. He saves his best efforts for this venue. Keep safe. DONNACHIARA (7) and FIRST COURRIER (2) best of the rest. SELECTION: #10 Land Ahoy for the win.
