Gimmie Par returns to the races after a nine week let up. We made her a black booker following on from a terrific debut performance up the Flemington straight where she was beaten half a length by the talented Ingratiating. The times were strong and there were good margins back to third and fourth. She has looked good winning a recent Pakenham jump out, draws perfectly and with natural improvement can take a power of beating here.
Riddle Me That is another we have added to the black book in recent times. He was terrific against the pattern first up at Moonee Valley and then luckless last start at Caulfield. He looks set to peak here third up and should be able to lob in a lovely spot from barrier five.
Winsum has come up as the early favourite in race number five. I thought he was disappointing last time given he received a fairly economical run in transit and he is yet to prove himself away from his home track of Cranbourne where both of his wins have come. I also think the step to 1200m suits some of the others here more than him.

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

Drawn perfectly and should give this race a shake from the kind barrier. 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
