Race 7, No. 10 FIT FOR PURPOSE
Has raced in fairly strong Saturday grades and motored late from back in the field to grab third behind Divine Unicorn. Finally draws a gate and McGillvray should position him fifth or sixth in the run and be too strong for them late.
Race 2, No. 3 BRAINS
Brains really hit the line hard last start for second behind Sweet Adaline. Consistent type who can prove he is smarter than these and get up here at good odds of around $11 in the small field.
Trainer Toby Edmonds is striking at 24 % at the Gold Coast this season. Edmonds saddles up 4 good chances today.
Race 1, No. 2 OUR RED JET
Punters are a forgiving lot backing this galloper in from $4.40 to $3.50 after running four seconds in a row as favourite in northern NSW. A couple of others fancied in this market have had support all the same which I would be keeping a close eye on.
Leg 1: 3,7,8
Leg 2: 5,7,8
Leg 3: 10
Leg 4: 1,2,4,10,11,13,15,16
$72 gets you 100%
Race 1: 10,2,12,5 Cincinnati Red was backed at her first start up from Victoria but faded late.Has had a month to settle in now and expect her to go better this time back to a more suitable distance.
Race 2: 3,4,2,1 Value Bet, Brains
Race 3: 7,8,2,1 Interesting that Toby Edmonds has scratched Usmanov which will give Viral a better crack at it. Social Media might go off if he wins on debut.
Race 4: 5,6,3,7 Mr Strachan won easily first up last time in and has won a recent trial in preparation for this. Should be ready.
Race 5: 8,7,3,13 Luna Missile raced some very smart types last time in and was a winner of a Gold Coast trial. Does go well fresh.
Race 6: 8,5,1,2 Hi Harry looks the one in this field who is ready to peak. Good first up run when H was very wide and finished off well behind Chavish then last start third was a forgive run on a Bog track.
Race 7: 10,6,12,4 Best Bet, Fit For Purpose.
Race 8: 2,11,16,1 Takarakka was a forget run when caught wide at the Sunny Coast. Was close up a couple of times to No Annamossity last time in and should loom late.
