Sunshine Coast horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:53) Reed Racing C6 Handicap (1600m)
#8 – Warp Speed @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Robert Heathcote-trained four-year-old comes off a win at Doomben and there is every chance he can win again.
He scored by a half-length and he hit the line powerfully, which is a good sign for the rest of the winter carnival.
Punters get value odds and he’s worth having on the ticket.
Race 2. (13:28) Sunshine Coast Solutions BM75 (1400m)
#9 – Spirit Esprit @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Spirit Esprit has already won twice this campaign and the four-year-old is running well enough to add another.
The son of Bel Esprit is a three-time winner at Sunshine Coast and there is no reason why he couldn’t be competitive in this company.
Barrier 10 is the only worry, but he only needs luck.
Race 3. (14:07) Bruce McLachlan Classic (1000m)
#3 – Sequesay @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to continue her unbeaten run is Sequesay, which scored by 1.3 lengths at Toowoomba last time out.
She faces a rise in class for his race, but the two-year-old has a bright future and she only needs to show barrier speed from barrier 14.
$3.20 is worth the risk.
Race 4. (14:47) Martin Collins Australia Handicap (1000m)
#6 – Totally Charmed @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The six-year-old owns five wins from seven starts at Sunshine Coast and he doesn’t need time to show his best form. He owns three fresh-up wins, which bodes well.
The son of I Am Invincible gets into this race beautifully on the weights at 54kg and we would be surprised if his odds didn’t firm throughout the week.
Race 5. (15:23) Access Insulation Sunshine Coast Handicap (1000m)
#1 – Goldsborough @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old has made a positive start to his career with eight starts for three wins and four placings.
He owns two wins at Sunshine Coast and at the distance, so conditions suit and only the wide draw could trip him up on Saturday.
Look for him to get cover and try slingshot them late.
Race 6. (15:58) Winx Guineas (1600m)
#15 – Meg @ $14 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Meg is a former Kiwi filly that has won her last two starts in Australia. She came over with plenty of hype, and although beaten at Kembla Grange, she kicked back with consecutive wins.
The latest came at Rosehill when carrying a light weight. It was a progressive victory and she handles all conditions, so the odds are well worth taking.
Her opening odds of $20 have already been taken.
Race 7. (16:40) Allchin Caloundra Cup (2400m)
#2 – Wu Gok @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Chris Waller-trained gelding is a heavy track specialist and he should get conditions to suit. He owns eight heavy-track wins, which is a great record.
He is a son of Sebring that struggled in similar company last start, but he did too much early work and it told late.
$6.50 is a price worth snapping up.
Race 8. (17:15) Tab Glasshouse Handicap (1400m)
#12 – Profit @ $11 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Profit scored a good win fresh up at Eagle Farm, and although beaten last time out, he wasn’t far behind some smart types.
The former Kiwi was only three lengths behind Ranier and Kementari, and we’re expecting that form to be too good for this field.
54kg on his back and punters should enjoy the odds.
Race 9. (17:50) Sky Racing Sprinters Final BM80 (1200m)
#9 – Jetski @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Jetski comes off four consecutive placings and the four-year-old son of Lonhro deserves a win.
He owns four wins from 21 starts and he has yet to miss a placing at Sunshine Coast, so the course helps and all four wins have come at this distance.
Barrier three is ideal and he should be right around the mark.
