Laure Me In
Laure Me In Picture:Racing and Sports

Major Australian TAB meetings are held today at Flemington, Randwick Kensington, Beaudesert, Bunbury and Murray Bridge.

Flemington: Race 3 @ 5:35pm


Pace from Wetakemanhattan, Silverhawk, Heir To The Throne and Bad Wolf. LAURE ME IN was a touch unlucky at Caulfield on Boxing Day and backs up quickly here looking to make amends. Win two back was very sharp and think that he has more to come on what we saw there. SILVERHAWK is certainly up and firing and have to think that he poses a strong winning threat once again. PURE SCOT is a frustrating horse but she ran well last time and her best efforts do rate highly at this level. Bad Wolf best of the rest. SELECTIONS: #3 Laure Me In can atone for a luckless Caulfield run.

Randwick Kensington: Race 6 @ 4:40pm

Sprint with not a great deal of early pace evident. FUCHU comes here chasing a hat-trick of wins after successes at Newcastle and Wyong. Deserves his chance at this level and should be peaking fourth run from a spell. 3kg claim helps offset the big weight. SEAHAMPTON drops back in grade after making no impression first up at Rosehill. Won what proved to be a solid form race on the course proper here during the winter. Might be able to regain some confidence against this sort of opposition. SNITZEL DAY the best of the rest. SELECTIONS: #1 Fuchu looks well placed. Back accordingly.

Inverell: Race 6 @ 4.24pm

One of the better bets on the card is BULLSEYE SCORE. Led all the way to win his maiden with ease over this trip at Taree two runs back then worked overtime to find the lead only to be swamped close to home over 950m at Moree last time. Draws beautifully today at his home track and looks set to return to the winner's list. JAZZEE NICC drew the car park and couldn't figure first up over this trip at Gunnedah. Has a much better second up record and from the perfect gate this time is capable of a sharp form reversal. Distance specialist MELLORE scored first up at Texas over 900m. Races well here and generally holds the good form second up. NEW ALLIANCE and RED DRAMA are other last start winners with claims. SELECTIONS: Confident win bet #1 Bullseye Score.

Murray Bridge: Race 4 @ 3.51pm (AEDT)

KARLOVASI enjoys a big drop in grade having taken on Listed races at his past two and he wasn't far away in both of them. Had won in the city before that and steps up to a trip where he won his only attempt. Rates on top. THIS KID ROCKS was only beaten 3L in Melbourne last start and had a win and two placings from his other three runs this campaign. Danger. LAST WITNESS was placed when resuming and has won twice when second-up so can progress. SELECTIONS: #1 Karlovasi is the class runner. Backing to win.

Beaudesert: Race 6 @ 5.27pm (AEDT)

SPEAKING BAD was an eye-catcher first up when she was slow out but made ground for a close second. Will be improved by that and is suited stepping up to the distance that produced her lone career win. Could be hard to hold out second up. ODDFELLOW broke through with a 5.5L romp in his maiden at this track and trip last time. The penny may have dropped now. Could go on with it. GOOLBURRA GUY is another coming off a maiden win last start. Lightly raced and has some upside. RAYMAX is getting close to a win after placing at his past two. SELECTIONS: #8 Speaking Bad to win off an eye-catching return.

Bunbury: Race 6 @ 6:55pm (AEST)

Looks a race of forgiveness. SNOW BLOSSOM ran 10th last time but in far superior grade in town and had no luck at all. Huge class drop and expect to see sharp improvement. FRIAR'S GIFT was fifth latest but not far away in town too. Looks hard to beat here. SCANDAL MAKER is racing well and has to be included. Expected to take catching. MY LAINA was well below best last time but has a great record here. Rates well and can bounce back. SELECTIONS: #5 Snow Blossom will go close this class.
