Track Condition: Soft 5

Rail Position: Out 5m entire circuit

MONACO DELUXE only just missed at Sunshine Coast last start. He has had plenty of chances to win a race but will not get much easier than this.

BURN THE BOATS has been racing in consistent form without breaking through. If he can hold that form here he can sneak a minor spot.

BORA BORA is an interesting runner from the Annabel Neasham stable. She has shown nothing in two Gosford starts but must respect when stable bring them north.


MEXICAN STAR is screaming out to win her maiden. Placed in all three starts this time in and although drawn wide she goes on top.

ECCENTRIC is a debutant from the Kelly Schweida stable. Was well beaten when placed in on Deagon trial but this not tough at first start and she can figure.

KERRISDALE started favourite at Sunshine Coast first-up but just looked in need of the run and did not finish well enough. Drawn ideally and will be better from the outing.


A CALL FROM HEAVEN was well supported at Doomben on debut and just found one better final stages. Improves off the race experience and she can go one better.

MY SHAMANA resumes from spell. She was not beaten all that far in either run at first campaign and if she can bring that form into this fresh she will go close.

AVENUE OF HEAVEN is a debutant. In astute stable and if there is any money about for her must respect.

TE JINA ROSE resumes from spell. She was not beaten all that far in any of her starts last time in work and although drawn wide would not leave him out of chances.


ROMAN HEIR has been racing consistently and although had few chances looks close to a maiden win. Will not get a better chance than this.

HINSON had nice run in behind the speed and chased home soundly when just missed at Kilcoy on debut. Better from the race experience and would not leave out.

CONSTRUCTIONMASTER comes into this off a last start placing at Warwick. If he can produce that form here he would be right in the mix.

LUCKY EXCHANGE is a debutant that was placed in recent Doomben trial. This not a difficult affair at first start and from ideal draw he can figure.


BEAUCHAMP raced up on the speed and just proved too strong to win at Kilcoy last start. This a tougher affair but he can measure up.

COUP comes into this ready third-up from spell. He has not been beaten all that far in either run back from spell and he can sneak into a placing.

DEJANOVA won two in a row at Sunshine Coast then last start was better than finishing position suggests last start. Drawn to get right run and cannot leave out.

ROYAL PERFORMANCE resumes from a spell. He has been placed fresh and in what looks an even affair he can figure in exotics.


ZA HIDDEN DRAGON resumes from spell. Close up when placed at Gold Coast in two runs before going for a break. Two sound trials will have him fit for this.

MISHANI BANDIT was placed on heavy ground at Sunshine Coast two starts back then went to Doomben and was not disgraced. Drawn ideally and can win.

DRAMMATICA battled on well enough when just out of placings on debut. She will be much better from the race experience and cannot dismiss.


MIX has come back in super form having won all three starts this time in. Working through his classes with authority and from ideal barrier he can win again.

VINASTA comes into this ready third-up from spell. She has not been beaten all that far and he is another that has perfect barrier and must respect.

PRINCESS TENKO was too strong winning at Sunshine Coast two starts back then she battled on well enough at Doomben last start. She can sneak a place.

Tip: MIX

Going to have something each way on BURY ROAD. He just missed here two starts back then went to Doomben and just got too far back last start. Drawn ideally and back to Ipswich winning move.

GULLFOSS is another that was beaten by barest margin this track two back then went to town and held her ground. She gets chance in this.

LOVYOUANYTIME has been a model of consistency. Comes off last start Doomben placing and if he brings similar form into this will be in the mix.

SO YOU’RE MAGIC did some work early stages at Ballina last start and just did not finish race off well enough. He can sneak into exotics.


ASHERLA chased home a couple of smart ones at Doomben last start. Looks in right race here and should finish the day on a high note for favourite punters.

DRIZZLE took on a better race at Gold Coast last start. Drawn to get the perfect run in transit and she should improve enough to be in finish.

PIVOTAL MOTION looked like he needed the run at Warwick first-up. Strips fitter and may sneak into a place.
