Gold Coast horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:25) Play Gold Coast BM78 (1800m)
#13 – Olympic Class @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Michael Costa-trained three-year-old is a two-time winner from four starts and that is solid form for this contest.
He comes off a 1.3-length win at Sunshine Coast and he has yet to finish worse than second in two starts on the track.
The inside draw and a light weight are ideal.
Race 2. (12:04) Gold Coast Bat Out of Hell (900m)
#4 – Sugar Boom @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sugar Boom is a speedy mare that won’t be worried about running over the short-course distance.
She is a four-year-old that owns seven wins from 16 starts and one of those came over this distance, which is ideal.
James McDonald rides and we’re confident of a big effort on Saturday.
Race 3. (12:39) Heineken Gold Coast Cup (2400m)
#7 – Traduce @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Traduce comes off back-to-back wins at Eagle Farm and he demands attention based on those efforts.
He is a four-time winner that defeated a quality field by over a length last start and the rise in distance shouldn’t worry him in the slightest.
Carrying 54kg is ideal and he has upside.
Race 4. (13:14) Hot Tomato Goldmarket (1200m)
#11 – Wisdom of Water @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Wisdom of Water has been facing tough fields and running well, so he will appreciate the drop in class.
He comes off a sixth behind Wild Ruler and prior to that he ran second behind Signore Fox at Rosehill. That was a nice run and getting into this race at 54kg is ideal.
Punters should expect a competitive effort.
Race 5. (13:49) Ken Russell Memorial (1200m)
#6 – Cork Harbour @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Chris Waller-trained two-year-old comes off an impressive maiden win at Canterbury and he defeated a subsequent winner.
He scored by a length and he showed good barrier speed, which is ideal over this distance and it will be hot tempo.
Barrier 10 is the only worry but he demands respect.
Race 6. (14:24) Gold Coast Bracelet (1800m)
#1 – Tycoon Evie @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Tycoon Evie is a consistent three-year-old that has missed a win or placing in only one of her 10 starts.
The daughter of Written Tycoon was beaten a half-length by Easifar, but rising in distance should help and she can’t be overlooked.
Punters get value each-way odds and drawing wide won’t be an issue over this distance.
Race 7. (15:04) Brandons Gold Coast Guineas (1200m)
#2 – Rocketing By @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
David Pfieffer lines up the three-year-old colt that scored three consecutive wins before finishing fifth behind Wild Ruler.
We’re expecting that to be a quality form race and the son of So You Think has plenty more wins in store this season.
James McDonald rides and punters get juicy odds.
Race 8. (15:44) A. D. Hollindale Stakes (1800m)
#2 – Avilius @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Avilius is a professional 11-time winner that has the class to beat this field. He ran fifth at Group 1 level last start and that’s excellent form for this race.
The James Cummings-trained runner will likely get back in the run, but he should appreciate rising in distance to 1800m.
$5.50 for a runner of his class is good shopping.
Race 9. (16:24) Attwood Marshall Silk Stocking (1400m)
#9 – Euro Belle @ $8.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Euro Belle has finished out of the money in only five of her 15 starts, which includes three wins and a last-start second placing.
She was only narrowly beaten behind a smart type last start and with Robbie Fradd in the saddle, she should get every chance in the run.
Expect another tidy effort.
