Despite an awkward draw, Ray believes Bel Diablo has the necessary early speed to register his second win from six starts for Mudgee trainer David Smith. Ray also suggests punters save a little for Spinning Dawn, while at Taree he says Nais Ko meets an easier field this time around and appears hard to beat. Bel Diablo and Nais Ko are Ray Thomas’s best bets for Tuesday afternoon. Picture: Simon BullardSource:News Corp Australia ORANGE BEST BET: BEL DIABLO (Race 5, No. 6) Comes off a very good, albeit unlucky effort when fourth to Equal Balance in a Rosehill TAB Highway. Was held up for a run at a vital stage in the straight before finishing strongly. Awkwardly drawn but has gate speed to negate it. Promising and just needs luck to win. NEXT BEST: SPINNING DAWN (Race 7, No. 2) Had to make a long run and still loomed up to win but tired late when a close fourth at this track last start. Fitter three runs in and is ready to win. TRAINER TO FOLLOW: SCOTT SINGLETON Scott Singleton can bookend the meeting with Madam Juror (race 1) and Spinning Dawn and Celtic Diamond (race 7). Singleton also saddles up Oakwood Lady (race 6). TAREE BEST BET: NAIS KO (Race 7, No. 4) Romped home to win her maiden over the Taree 1250m trip by more than five lengths when resuming but then struggled to run out 1400m at Newcastle last start. She drops back in distance today and this is an easier race. Back her with confidence. NEXT BEST: ONEMORE FOR WILSON (Race 1, No. 2) Chased the speedy Soolaimon at Cessnock and closed to a half length from the winner. Improved by recent racing, suited getting out to 1600m and should break his maiden. JOCKEY TO FOLLOW: JOSH ADAMS Has been riding in very good form and his four rides on Tuesday should make the trip to Taree worthwhile. His mounts are Aristograts (race 2), I Am Baymax (race 5), Kopite (race 6) and Nais Ko (race 7). BEST EXOTIC: QUADDIE: 1st leg: 6,8,13 2nd leg: 7,9 3rd leg: 2,3,4,10 4th leg: 3,4 Trainer Kris Lees is confident Nais Ko can bounce back for her last-start defeat.
