Gold Coast horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:03) Coastal Tipper Hire (1100m)
#6 – Lady Laguna @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lady Laguna scored a good win on debut at Eagle Farm and she can go undefeated here.
The two-year-old filly scored by a half-length, and although she meets a harder field, she gets in with only 55kg on her back.
$3.90 is a fair price.
Race 2. (12:38) Tattersalls Life Members BM80 (2200m)
#4 – Shebringzit @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Tony Gollan-trained mare comes off a win at Sunshine Coast and we like her chances of going back-to-back.
She is unbeaten in two starts at the distance and her two-length win over 2200m last start is an excellent form guide.
54kg on her back and $3.60 is a fair price.
Race 3. (13:13) Tattersalls Members BM75 (1800m)
#14 – Becandleni @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old mare scored consecutive wins at Gold Coast before running third last time out at Eagle Farm.
Her most recent on this track came by 6.3 lengths on a good track, and her best form comes on wet tracks, so that bodes well.
Carrying a light weight is ideal and we can’t believe the odds.
Race 4. (13:48) The Tattler Handicap (1300m)
#6 – Wardaddy @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Wardaddy won on debut at Taree on a heavy surface by 4.3 lengths, which is an excellent form guide.
The Kris Lees-trained gelding then ran second at Port Macquarie and Doomben behind some smart types. He has the best form in this race and his future looks bright.
2kg comes off his back to add confidence to his chances.
Race 5. (14:28) Tattersalls Functions C3 (1200m)
#5 – Tamilaide @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Tamilaide has yet to finish worse than third from seven starts, so there is no reason to jump off his back.
The four-year-old son of Adelaide is unbeaten at Gold Coast and he won his only fresh up start, so the statistics read well.
He opened at $4.40 and has firmed into $3.50, which is a solid move.
Race 6. (15:08) Tattersalls Weddings C6 Plate (1400m)
#10 – Morethannumberone @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Michael Costa-trained gelding is in good form with three wins and two placings this season.
He won at Gold Coast in consecutive starts and he has yet to suffer defeat here. His effort last start at Doomben was tidy, so we’re confident of another good run.
Money is coming for him and that’s not surprising.
Race 7. (15:48) Sky Tattersalls Recognition (1400m)
#3 – The Harrovian @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Class is with The Harrovian, who owns an incredible 17 wins. The eight-year-old has been facing tough opposition of late, but he will find this much easier.
He doesn’t mind the sting out of the surface and with three wins over this distance, he should have no problem with it.
Four of his wins have come fresh up, so the $3.50 is well worth taking.
Race 8. (16:28) Eureka Stud Classic (1200m)
#1 – Wandabaa @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Wandabaa loves the sting out of the surface and the five-year-old mare has the class edge on this field.
The Lees-trained daughter of Wandjina owns four wins on a rain-affected track, and carrying only 56.5kg brings her right into contention.
She finished second behind Lost and Running last start, which is Everest form lines.
Race 9. (17:10) Tattersalls Arcade BM80 (1200m)
#10 – Ingear @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ingear can be tough to follow at times, but she is firing on all cylinders in three starts this season.
The five-year-old mare owns two wins from three starts this preparation, including a last-start win at Eagle Farm.
She gets the inside draw and we like her chances.
