Race 10, No. 2 TAWFIQ BOY
Was hampered in the straight then worked home nicely from the 100m behind Mr Marbellouz in what looks a strong form race. Has previously shown he can mix it with some of the top Queensland sprinters and expect Larry Cassidy to have him in a better position behind the speed from the gate. Is a nice price and should be too good for this field.
Race 5, No. 11 SCORCHA
Was close up in this grade two starts back and got a little caught out of position last time. Draws in a bit closer and can make a real play if she doesn't get too far out of her ground. $9.50 each way.
Freddie Fox Trot has 5 wins from 6 starts at the distance and has 3 wins from 4 starts at the Gold Coast. He is first up in this and has 1 win from 3 first up runs.
Race 8, No. 12 SPIRIT'S CHOICE
Is going for 4 straight wins and has been smashed. $12 into $5.
Leg 1: 2,3,4,6,10
Leg 2: 1,3,4,12
Leg 3: 1,2,5
Leg 4: 1,2
$60 gets you 50%
Race 1: 10,6,4,8. Drumadoir is ready to eat up the 1800 metres. Reiby The Red who beat her last run won again on Wednesday.
Race 2: 8,7,3,2. Jeff Lloyd may have made the wrong call jumping on to a scratched runner. Wu Gok was strong through the line and they all now step up to 2400 metres.
Race 3: 3,8,7,4. Bonsho led them up last time and may get the cheap seat behind them on the rail here. Has a good second up record.
Race 4: 6,2,4,10. Cool Drafts is a strong finisher and can get over them here.
Race 5: 11,12,3,14. Value Bet. Scorcha
Race 6: 6,11,4,5. Xebec third up looks cherry ripe.
Race 7: 4,6,2,10. Xanthus was caught wide behind The Odyssey on what was a mad leaders track. Big improver.
Race 8: 12,4,1,3. Spirit's Choice has been winning by big spaces in fast time. Can take the next step.
Race 9: 5,2,3,1. Mr Marbellouz has found winning form again and should go on with it.
Race 10: 2,1,11,15. Best Bet. Tawfiq Boy.
