Australian thoroughbred Tab meetings are today held at Wodonga, Muswellbrook, Bathurst and Belmont Park.
WODONGA: RACE 3 @ 1:30 PM
JOHNNY WATTS ON (5) was well supported last start when making his debut and went a bold race to finish second over 1000m. Will appreciate an extra 100m in distance today and looks the obvious choice. IMA GURU (4) resumes from a spell and should go well fresh-up as she finished second on debut here two starts back. Should be finishing in the top-three. SUNSET LADY (9) could only finish eighth last start when making her racing debut, starts for a new stable and in a fresh-up state can fall into a place. FIELDS OF FRANCE (7) has been thereabouts recently and is a place chance.
SELECTIONS: Johnny Watts on to win.

MUSWELLBROOK: RACE 5 @ 4:40 PM
FINAL STATEMENT (1) finds the right race to win after finishing in the minor money at his last two outings. Used up early from the wide gate when a fighting second over 1400m at Tamworth on January 19. At his top now and drawn to get every chance from the gate. The one to beat. MANGOOLA (2) resumes today and goes well this track and trip. Up in trip when a plugging second over 1800m at Bathurst on September 25. Looked strong through the line when fourth in a 900m trial at Scone on January 27. Claim helps and expected to sprint well fresh. GIRRAGULANG (3) ran a better race after being freshened up when closing off late for a solid third over 1400m at Tamworth on January 19. Looks close to a win. ZORIA'S HERO (5) returned from a lengthy break with a well-deserved maiden win over 1280m at this track on January 16. Even fitter now and has the ability to figure in the finish.
SELECTIONS: Final Statement to win.
BATHURST: RACE 5 @ 3:40 PM
BIAS (5) has shown good early to in his first two runs when leading them into the lane but has lacked a kick to finish them off. Strips fitter and faces an easier assignment this time. Blinkers go on first time to help him focus. The one to beat. ITSAGOODDEEL (8) got too far back fresh but managed to make some in-roads late to the line. Up slightly in the weights but strips fitter second-up and is drawn nicely. Main danger. GALLIC FOX (7) has been thereabouts this prep without striking the killer blow. Form from his races has stuck up well with a handful of subsequent winners. Warrants respect on best efforts. CATARATAS (1) best of the rest.
SELECTIONS: Bias to win.
BELMONT PARK: RACE 2 @ 1:27 PM
ROMANTIC RULER (4) was a beaten favourite in both his starts last prep and has been gelded since. He returns from a spell that would have done him the world of good and after a recent quiet trial, he looks ready to rumble. Hard to beat. WHO'S ME DADDY (1) has gone close to winning on a couple of occasions but has just lacked strength. He is fresh up today off the back of an impressive trial win and should be in for a good campaign as a six year old. He will be the main threat to the top selection. SLAVICA (10) has had plenty of trial experience and her connections have been patient. A bright start to her career can be expected. Include. DIVINE JUDGEMENT (5) nearly led all the way at Pinjarra Scarpside fresh up and will be even sharper today. He has the perfect inside gate and might try similar tactics today. He should be hard to peg back again.
SELECTIONS: Romantic Ruler to win.
