Gold Coast free tips & form
Race 1. (11:38) Remembrance BM85 (2200m)
#6 – Makdanife – Bet Now
This isn’t an overly strong field to open the card but Makdanife brings in Sydney form and that stands out.
The Chris Waller-trained gelding is struggling to win a race but has been knocking on the door after three placings from his last four starts.
Gets in beautifully on the weights at 54kg and won’t spend a penny off the inside draw.
Race 2. (12:13) Jaymac Racing Supports Handicap (1400m)
#3 – Defactor – Bet Now
The three-year-old mare huge ground on debut when third and did the same when winning last time out at Gold Coast.
Michael Costa lines up the three-year-old which will likely adopt similar tactics here and the rise from 1200m to 1400m is only going to help his chances.
Plenty of nice types in this field but he looms as a major contender.
Race 3. (12:48) Lucky Star Tavern Handicap (1800m)
#9 – Kuttamurra Al – Bet Now
Kuttamurra Al gets in nicely on the weights at 54kg and that brings him right into contention.
The seven-year-old got back to form when running second at Toowoomba last start and it could continue that form here.
Punters should be getting a value price and bigger upsets have happened on the race track.
Race 4. (13:23) Cooper Reeves C6 Handicap (900m)
#1 – Boom Chicka Boom – Bet Now
It was Boom Chicka Boom last start at Doomben when the five-year-old scored and he could stay in winning form.
The son of All Too Hard isn’t often far away from the winners and with five wins and six placings from 16 starts, he’s an underrated type.
Drawn the rail here so he can use the rail to his advantage, which is key for the 900m distance.
Race 5. (13:58) Business Insurance Group 0MW (1100m)
#2 – Snipstream – Bet Now
The obvious negative is barrier draw 20, but with some luck the five-year-old could push them close here.
He’s a talented winner of six from 11 starts and that includes a win earlier this month at Ipswich. That was a nice bounce-back effort after running 13th at Eagle Farm prior.
Punters will need to take the risk from the draw but he’s smart on his day.
Race 6. (14:37) Coolphase Communite C3 Plate (1200m)
#3 – Langhro – Bet Now
Langhro is a highly-talented type which scored wins at Bendigo and Wangaratta in 2018 before running some good races in Melbourne.
He finished second behind Star Fall at Caulfield and third behind Just Hifalutin at Flemington. That came before some solid efforts at Doomben and that form reads well for this.
There are some smart types in this field but he looks a good chance with the aid of the inside draw
Race 7. (15:17) MacLean Fellowship BM70 (1800m)
#11 – Twilighter – Bet Now
Punters should always respect the Chris Waller-trained runners in Queensland and Twilighter looks a nice chance.
The five-year-old mare finished second on this track last start as a long-odds chance but we’re expecting shorter odds this time around.
She scored a win third-up last campaign and with two runs under the belt here, she should be able to strike.
Race 8. (15:57) J Morrisey Hall of Fame (1400m)
#1 – Scrabble – Bet Now
We love a bit of Scrabble and the seven-year-old could score another win this campaign. He’s shooting for his fourth win from his last six starts and that’s good form for this.
Stuart Kendrick has a high opinion of the son of Nom Du Jeu and although beaten at McKay last time out, he owns two placings from four starts at Gold Coast.
Likely to be at juicy each-way odds and they should be taken.
Race 9. (16:37) C Small Hall of Fame Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Care To Think – Bet Now
Care To Think used to be a top type and although his form has been average for awhile, we’re keeping the faith.
The Matthew Dunn-trained six-year-old is a winner of over $870,000 and that should be respected against a field of this nature.
He has a trial win and placing coming into this and he could show some cheek from an inside draw.
