Tambora (Ascot Race 6 No. 6)
This three-year-old gelding from the Darren McAuliffe stable has two wins and a place from three starts. He led but faded a little in the final 150m for 2.05 lengths 2nd over 1600m at Ascot on 9 January, then led all the way and hung on for a 0.58 length win over 1400m at Bunbury on 11 February. He drops 5kg from his last run and has the ability to win again.
Indigo Blue (Ascot Race 7 No. 2):
This three-year-old Blackfriars filly has one wins and three places from seven starts, and has shown staying potential. She was a very close 2nd in the Group 3 WA Champion Fillies Stakes over 1600m at Ascot on 14 November before a 12 week spell, then resumed for 3.22 lengths 10th over 1300m at Pinjarra Park on 6 February. She won at Belmont in her only previous second-up attempt and looks a nice each-way bet.
Tommy Blue (Ascot Race 8 No. 3):
This four-year-old Gingerbread Man mare has two wins and five places from 12 starts and is the early favourite in this One Metro Win handicap over 1400m. She just battled to the line for 2.8 lengths 6th over 1200m at Pinjarra, then boxed on for 1.68 lengths 4th over 1200m at Ascot on 13 February. I don’t think the 1400m will suit and am prepared to risk her here.
Our Terang Tips for Tuesday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is true. The best bet comes off a 9 length romping and looks every chance of going one better despite the rise in grade. Best Bet Galloping Guru (Terang Race 7 No.2) Galloping Guru atoned with 2 luckless runs and put a 9 length margin on them. Goes up in grade but looks progressive and can head to the front and prove tough to mow down. Expecting the support to come prior to
Our Kembla Grange Tips for Tuesday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is in 6 metres. The best bet comes up in race 3 and looks very hard to hold out from the good draw with Jennings steering and hailing from the Doyle yard. Best Bet Reigning King (Kembla Grange Race 3 No. 2) Bumped into a good one fresh and was solid in defeat. Its only win came second up in the past so this looks a very suitable race and slightly easier
Our Kempsey Tips for Monday's meeting. Key Comments The rail is true. The best bet has been heavily backed. Best Bet Fools Play (Kempsey Race 3 No. 7) Has claims against this bunch.

The booking of Mc Guren is suitable and this race is ideal. $2.40 Best Each Way Hard To Dismiss (Kempsey Race 7 No.8 ) Doesn't win out of turn
