Gold Coast horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:47) Radiotab C3 Plate (1100m)
#11 – She Can Sing @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
She Can Sing won three consecutive races before finishing fifth at Doomben last start, and she’s capable of bouncing back.
The Michael Costa-trained four-year-old scored at her only start at Gold Coast, so that experience is always good to have.
Barrier three is ideal, so put her on top.
Race 2. (12:22) Simmons Livingstone BM80 (2200m)
#2 – Honorable Spirit @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Honorable Spirit owns three wins from his last four starts and he can add another win to his record.
The five-year-old is a three-time winner at Gold Coast, so having track experience is ideal. We’re not surprised by the odds, and he only needs luck from the tricky barrier.
Race 3. (12:58) AGP Workforce Handicap (1100m)
#3 – Rubiquitous @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Chris Anderson-trained three-year-old gelding is a two-time winner from three starts and he should add more wins.
He scored nicely at Eagle Farm last time out when paying double figure odds, but punters were never going to get those odds here.
$6 is still a value price.
Race 4. (13:33) Quinn Family Law Quality (900m)
#8 – The Move @ $2 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Move is the justifiable favourite following three consecutive wins. The son of Hinchinbrook won at Warwick Farm before scoring at Doomben, including a 3.5-length win last time out.
He looks a class above this field and carrying 54kg on his back should make him tough to hold out. He also gets the inside draw to his advantage, so take the $2.
Race 5. (14:08) Sci-Fleet Hino BM78 (1800m)
#13 – Aswaat @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Aswaat is searching for her third consecutive win and dropping to 51kg is ideal. She is a three-time winner overall, and her turn-of-foot should be improved with the light weight.
We’re surprised that she has drifted in betting markets, but punters can lock in a value price at the $4.
She should be tough to hold out.
Race 6. (14:48) Birkdecks Jewellers C6 (1200m)
#2 – Weona Smartone @ $1.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old runs at short odds and although $1.40 is short, he should be putting this field to be.
He is a winner of six from seven starts connections weren’t wrong when naming this runner. He is a smart son of Shamexpress, who has open-class racing in his future.
The $1.40 is likely to form on race day.
Race 7. (15:27) Sky Racing Pink Ribbon Cup (1300m)
#4 – Miami Fleiss @ $1.45 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Miami Fleiss is another short-priced favourite who looks to have a mortgage on this race.
The Gollan-trained mare is a three-time winner from five starts and she looked good winning by 1.5 lengths last time out.
Big sprinting features could be in her future, so put her on top at skinny odds.
Race 8. (16:07) Cronin Miller Litigation C3 (1400m)
#1 – Charretera @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Peter and Paul Snowden-trained gelding is out of form, but moving to Queensland racing could help.
He is a three-time winner who also has 16 placings, so he’s rarely too far away from the prize. His confidence levels need to improve, but he has been respected with bookmakers.
Consider at $6.50, which is a value price.
Race 9. (16:43) South Coast Radiology BM85 (1400m)
#2 – Run For Glory @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old owns six wins and six placings from 15 starts, which is an impressive and consistent record.
He is a son of Olympic Glory who likes the track and distance, so there isn’t much going against him with the apprentice claim.
His opening odds of $4.10 shortened quickly, which is a good sign.
