The Coast Form Guide & Tips
1. Nimalee (Best Bet – $6.50) Bet @ Sportsbet
Nimalee is coming off a run for ninth at Randwick and dropping back from Group 1 level will be a help.
The four-year-old mare looked good prior when winning back-to-back races and that form will be good enough for this race.
Punters get value odds and she should give a good sight.
2. Brandenburg ($10) Bet @ Sportsbet
He comes off two disappointing efforts and he seems to have lost his zest for racing. His best form would be good enough, but take on trust at the moment.
$10 is a touch short for our liking.
3. All Saint’s Eve (Best Each Way – $6.50) Bet @ Sportsbet
We’re expecting All Saint’s Eve to bounce back after a disappointing run at Randwick last time out.
The four-year-old gets the inside draw and punters get each-way odds, so she is a value runner in this field.
Expect her odds to drop on race day.
4. Arapaho ($8.50) Bet @ Sportsbet
He comes off a sixth behind Rocha Clock and his odds are a touch short for our liking on Saturday.
We rated him as a double-figure chance and although he has ability on his day, he hasn’t shown that for some time now.
5. Game of Thorns ($23) Bet @ Sportsbet
Form doesn’t do its ability justice but she doesn’t help herself by getting back in the run and needing space.
She gets in with only 54kg on her back and that’s a positive. We wouldn’t leave her completely out of selections.
6. East Asia ($51) Bet @ Sportsbet
Nothing wrong with her two starts this preparation but we question the level of opposition she has faced.
She is drifting with bookmakers and that’s not surprising.
7. Wheelhouse ($6) Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old didn’t have much luck in the Doncaster, but he was always going to struggle in the Group 1 company.
He looked good against age-group opposition, but this field isn’t easy. He goes into first-four selections, but we wouldn’t have him as favourite.
8. Charmmebaby ($34) Bet @ Sportsbet
She hasn’t shown much this season and a win here would be a big surprise. Her odds should drift on race day so there is no value at the $34.
9. Nudge ($7) Bet @ Sportsbet
The Chris Waller-trained mare has shown ability in the past and we’re not surprised at the odds available.
She comes off a second placing behind Rocha Clock and we’re expecting that form to hold up well enough.
52kg on her back is ideal and she enters trifecta calculations.
10. All Hallow’s Eve (Best Roughie – $15) Bet @ Sportsbet
A two-time winner this preparation, All Hallow’s Eve is good enough to beat this field with only 52kg on her back.
She comes off a half-length win at Randwick and although facing older horses here, she has plenty of upside.
Consider, especially at the price.
11. Electric Girl ($23) Bet @ Sportsbet
Yet to win from four starts this time in and we don’t see that changing here. It would take a career-best effort to score.
12. Brutality ($10) Bet @ Sportsbet
His opening odds have been cut in half and the four-time winner is capable of scoring an upset in this company.
He could continue to firm throughout the week and with his good tactical pace, he could be the smokey of the race.
13. I Say Hello ($12) Bet @ Sportsbet
She owns three wins from five starts and she deserves a chance at the prize. Her win at Hawkesbury was good and she was only a half-length behind All Hallow’s Eve.
Chance at the double-figure odds.
