Track Condition: Soft 5

Rail Position: True entire circuit

LICENCED AND READY was placed on the heavy ground at Sunshine Coast first-up from spell then led them up in better race here last start before tiring. Finds easier race.

SUENITO had support at Eagle Farm on debut but did not finish race off well enough. Comes off solid trial placing and from inside gate should get his chance.

REDVEDEV makes his debut. Looked impressive winning his most recent at Deagon 1050m (1:05.06) 25/1. Drawn ideally and watch for any market support.


LARAINA is overdue for a win. Placed in all four starts this time in and although she has drawn a little wide she still goes on top.

WHODAT chased home strongly when placed first-up at Doomben. Sure to strip fitter and would not be surprised to see him go one better in this.

OFF ROAD comes into this ready third-up from spell. Two solid Ipswich placings leading into this and he will not be maiden for much longer.

TURN ME OVER had support at Sunshine Coast on debut and he was not beaten all that far when ran into minor placing. Better from the experience and from ideal barrier will go close.


Going to have something each way on SERENE AFFAIR. She showed enough last time in work when not beaten all that far in a couple of Eagle Farm maidens. She gets her chance in this.

BAKUHATSU sat up on the speed and stayed right in the race until late first-up. Sure to be better from that outing and although drawn in car park cannot leave out.

GOOD BEAN is a debutant from the Baldwin camp. Looked impressive winning recent Doomben trial by a space and like his chance in this.


KIPPAX won at Sunshine Coast two starts back then got going late when found one better here last start. Drawn ideally and gets chance to return to winners stall.

SCARLET PIMPERNEL held on for good tough win at Sunshine Coast last start. He hit front long way out but held them all off. He will go close again.

OSTERMEIER came from well off them with withering run to win here last start. Perfect barrier draw and he will take holding out last 200m.


PETUNIA resumes from spell. She was placed when first-up last time in work and from ideal barrier she can get away with this.

MILIARENSE raced on the speed and proved too strong here last start. Looking for her to roll forward again and she will take catching from the corner.

BELLA ROYALE was sent out favourite here last start and she finished too well for impressive win. No reason he will not be in the mix again.


SNAZZ ‘N’ CHARM comes into this ready third-up from spell. Beaten less than 2 lengths here two starts back then went to Doomben and was placed last start. This nice race for him.

CORVO was dominant winning at Sunshine Coast last start. Drawn to get the ideal run in transit and he can win again.

APACHE BLUE is overdue for another win. Three placings from his last four starts and he looks well placed in this field.


LINTHORPE LAD chased home soundly when placed at Doomben two back then did not have much luck when favourite last start. Drawn perfectly and can bounce back.

PRINNY’S SUCCESS fought the race out solidly at Doomben last start and held solid minor placing. Finds a similar race and he will be right in the mix.

JETTY was luckless when always wide from horror barrier and entitled to tire. Drawn to get much better run and he will bounce back in this.


FALL ON A STAR jumped to the front and gave nothing else a chance here two starts back then forget last start when she never handled heavy ground. Back on firmer suits.

CHARRETERA resumes from spell. He has solid first-up record (6:1-2-1) and if he can find that form in this field should be right in the mix.

LE HEROS was too good for them winning here first-up from spell then showed pace at Gold Coast before weakening. He will be up front for a long way.


17:50 (local time)

SANZERA did plenty wrong on debut but she won on raw ability. Will be better from the race experience and from ideal barrier he can make it two in a row.

SALTOREE chased home gamely and beaten less than 2 lengths at Sunshine Coast first-up. Will strip fitter from the outing and she will be in the mix.

HI HI HI was not too bad when just missed placing at Sunshine Coast first-up. Needs ounce of luck from a wide gate but cannot leave out of place chance.
