Australian thoroughbred Tab meetings are today held at Hawkesbury, Ballarat, Gatton and Geraldton.

HAWKESBURY: RACE 8 @ 5:30 PM

HOOVER LUCY (6) failed to fire a shot when returning off a long break last time at Randwick. Fitter this time and steps out to a winning trip. Expecting her to atone. SEMPREINTE (2) battled on gamely to the line fresh despite being no match for the winner. Steps out to a preferred trip second up and has enough pace to offset the draw and race prominently. Should prove hard to reel in. ROSOVO (4) has had mixed form in his four starts. The best of him should see him go very close. STICK TO YOUR GUNS (1) kicked off his prep with an impressive win at Kembla Grange but is yet to go on with it. Wide alley to contest but is worth including in numbers.
SELECTIONS: Backing Hoover Lucy to win.

BALLARAT: RACE 4 @ 2:30 PM

MISS PASSION (8) has been to the races on four occasions and featured in the money at each outing. Looks nicely placed here to break maiden status. Should go close. MISS SASSY (9) has been around the mark in past two starts. Fit for this and looks one of the threats. CHEVAL CHIC (2) bumped into a smart one on debut. Will be improved by the experience and has to be given consideration. EYE KACHING (4) was comfortably held on debut when figuring in the money. Will be better for the experience and cannot be discounted.
SELECTIONS: Back Miss Passion to win.

GATTON: RACE 2 @ 1:45 PM

METZARRO (10) is in a sharp barn and first-up was beaten as favourite at the Gold Coast this trip. Not sure the low barrier will suit but she has the 2kg claim and will take plenty of beating. FAILED TO MENTION (1) didn't finish it off here first-up and will be much better today. Has more to give and should be right in it. BAGUIO (9) is a former Victorian resuming for the Kirkwood barn. She will race over further but won a recent trial suggesting she's forward. The awkward gate is against. HALLSIDE WILDTHING (2) tries hard and is a minor hope.
SELECTIONS: Backing Metzarro.
