5 Miss Busslinger (Bet Now: $1.40) should appreciate a rise in trip for Kris Lees. This girl debuted two weeks ago at the Sunny Coast where she just found them a bit sharp at 1000m but she picked up and wasn’t too bad to/through the line in defeat when fourth to El Morzillo, who will go around in the Inglis Millennium at Randwick as a knockout hope, so that form should read well for a race like this.

Danger

4 Fields Amour (Bet Now: $8.00) is a key threat. Lee Freedman trained filly that is a few weeks between runs since debuting with an all the way triumph over 800m at Ipswich where she produced sustained speed from the front and gave nothing else a look in. If she can stretch that brilliance to 1110m, then she’ll take beating against these.

Long Shot

1 Aikau (Bet Now: $7.50) is a son of Yes Yes Yes for Lee Freedman that is on debut. He trialled a couple of weeks back at Deagon over 650m when a narrow second in solid enough time. He moved well to my eye and had something in the locker. Stable is going well at the moment and this isn’t a deep race so watch the market.

Race 2. (13:48) Racecourse Village Hcp 1200m

I do like 2 Fukubana (Bet Now: $1.40) for Matty Dunn. He should have won at Doomben fresh but got too far back in a race dominated by those on speed, working home well late in the piece. He can settle much closer in the run this time around and for mine, 1200m is no issue. Think he has the quality to put these away.

Danger

4 Vindicta (Bet Now: $6.00) is a key chance. Jack Bruce trained three year old that has raced over 1000m at the Sunny Coast in his opening two career runs, winning impressively on debut before racing a fortnight back when near the speed and fought on well enough in defeat behind Highbar. The rise to 1200m I find interesting but hard to knock the way he has started his career.

Long Shot

1 Mishani Gangster (Bet Now: $10.00) should appreciate a rise back up in trip. He was 1200m back to 1000m when racing two weeks back at the Sunny Coast where he got back in the run and was never really a factor behind Highbar, beaten just under eight lengths. Maps to settle closer in the run and his best form is good enough to be a threat at odds.

Race 3. (14:23) Drinkwise (Bm85) 2000m

Back Me

8 Galifianakis (Bet Now: $11.00) looks to have come back in outstanding order and third up at 2000m, it all points to him IMO. Jack Bruce trained gelding that ran two weeks ago over 1800m at the Sunny Coast where he got into a good spot near the speed and presented to win the race but couldn’t quite get there when run down late by a nice horse, Sneak Preview. Like him up in trip and strikes a winnable race.

Danger

Back up in trip looks ideal for 9 Southern Stock (Bet Now: $16.00), a Chris Munce trained son of Tavistock that ran in the Sneak Preview race from a fortnight back where he got on speed and seemed to have every chance but couldn’t get the win when third to Sneak Preview. Back up in trip, hard fit, racing well…key chance.

Long Shot

6 Tony Be (Bet Now: $21.00) is an improver for Chris Waller. He ran two weeks back at the Sunny Coast where he pulled up with dehydration so forgive and forget the run when down the track behind Sneak Preview. Prior efforts were sound and is certainly good enough to take this out. Watch the market.

Race 4. (14:58) Stradbroke Season On Sale Now (Bm68) 1600m

15 Smooth Torque (Bet Now: $3.70) is a Matty Dunn trained mare that has found winning form and she can certainly go on with it. Loved the way she let down to win over this track/distance last Thursday, landing big bets in the process as she gave them a start and a beating. She was only third up there so you’d like to think with good room for improvement, she is the one to beat.

Danger

9 O’Miss Behaving (Bet Now: $8.50) is knocking on the door to win for Rob Heathcoate. She has finished runner up her past couple, the latest over 1400m at the Sunny Coast two weeks ago where she got back to near last in the run but she finished off her race with real purpose, just missing out on the win when a narrow second to Corfe Castle. Racing like 1600m suits and strikes a winnable race.

Long Shot

4 Beckford (Bet Now: $31.00) has to be given some level of respect. Stephen Lee trained gelding that ran in the Ballina Cup where he was clearly outclassed on paper but he ran out of his skin in defeat I thought behind Without Revenge, finishing a closing third. Hard horse to catch at times but off last start, he has to be rated as one of the leading chances.

Race 5. (15:33) Cascade Hcp (C1) 1350m

3 Notaclutehoworwho (Bet Now: $5.50) is one of the hardest to beat. He ran at Eagle Farm on Australia Day where he got back off the speed and came with a strong run but had no answers for the finale of Last Chance Saloon. He was a few weeks between runs there and with the 1400m run under the belt, it should hold him in good stead.

Danger

1 Russian Mystic (Bet Now: $6.50) is a key chance for Barry Lockwood. This guy resumed last Thursday at this track/distance where he did work from the wide gate to land near the speed and he tried his guts out but just couldn’t quite get the win when a narrow second to Selling Sunset. Fitter and with a better run in transit, he’s dangerous.

Long Shot

6 Duly Elected (Bet Now: $8.50) has been hit and miss in her six start career but her best is clearly good enough to take this race out. Far from disgraced fresh at Eagle Farm behind a nice horse, Master Maurice, before going here where she seemed to race a bit on the flat side, perhaps second up syndrome, when down the track behind Tikka Ready. Think hard fit, up to 1350m, not a deep race…she’s just about facing D-Day.

5 Naval Trader (Bet Now: $8.50) is a son of Merchant Navy for O’Dea/Hoysted that resumes. This guy is first up, having not raced since Sep 30 over 1400m at Eagle Farm when back near last in the run and made up solid headway to finish third to Drammatica. Trialled up really well at Doomben in readiness for his return and although he will spot them a start, he should be strong at the end.

Danger

7 Clover’s Prince (Bet Now: $11.00) has run well at 1200m previously and is racing really well so he commands respect. He ran over 1000m at Eagle Farm three weeks back in the race won by Blue Spinel. He was on speed and chasing from the outset but he kept finding the line in a good effort behind the Gollan runner. 1200m is no issue, good racing style, leading chance.

Long Shot

6 Carribean King (Bet Now: $17.00), I think, will be okay at 1200m, and he strikes a race where the overall depth isn’t great. He ran in the Blue Spinel race from a few weeks back here where he was having his first run for Matt Dunn. He seemingly had every chance but he was solid enough and kept chasing in a solid effort behind the Gollan sprinter. Not sure I could back him to win but is a must for exotics.

12 Jayanthi (Bet Now: $4.20) can run a much improved race here for O’Dea/Hoysted. Thrown in the deep end to start the prep, resuming in the Nudgee and then contesting the Magic Millions F&M where each time she finished down the track behind Lady Laguna, who bolted up last Saturday, so the form reads very well and back to 85 grade, back to a track she loves, hard to beat.

Danger

11 Crazy Train (Bet Now: $7.00) is three weeks between runs for Matty Dunn since racing over 1200m at Eagle Farm where he had the back of the winner and stablemate Emperor but just lacked the change up speed to go with him late but stayed on well enough to finish second. Good track/distance record and there is no Emperor here.

Long Shot

1 Constant Flight (Bet Now: $7.00) is an improver at a price. Lindsay Gough trained gelding that ran two weeks back in the Sunny Coast where he did too much work to land on speed and that early burn just told late in the piece, finishing down the track behind Kinloch. Not sure he wins, but with a better run in transit, can pinch a first four spot.

Race 8. (17:27) Xxxx (Bm78) 1600m

8 Pentito (Bet Now: $8.50) is flying for Jason Edwards and for mine, rates as one of the hardest to beat. Thrown in the deep two weeks ago in the Sunny Coast Cup and while he was never threatening to win, he was far from disgraced in defeat behind a very good horse in Kinloch. Like him up in trip and the depth here is clearly not as deep.

Danger

6 Cocobrew Express (Bet Now: $7.00) has found winning form for Ryan Tyrell and he can certainly go on with it. That win came two weeks ago a the Sunny Coast where he led throughout and credit to him, he was there to be beaten but he found under pressure to fend them off and win. Harder here, but with his racing style, he’ll give himself every chance.

Long Shot

2 Wairere Falls (Bet Now: $31.00) gets a much better set up this time around so for mine, he can run an improved race. He ran over 1400m at Eagle Farm a few weeks back where he was first up and just needed the run, especially the way the race panned out, finishing down the track behind Substantial. Fitter, his best is good enough to be dangerous.

Race 9. (18:10) Become A Member Hcp 1350m

3 Boom Torque (Bet Now: $2.35). Bless his heart. He won the Magic Millions QTIS at the Gold Coast after covering ground but still finished best to win and win well. Creeps back up in the weights but off last start, with good upside to come, he’s easy to like against these.

Danger

9 Hatchet (Bet Now: $3.90) should prove hard to beat for Rob Heathcoate. He ran a fortnight back at the Sunny Coast over 1200m where he seemingly had every chance but that said, I thought he was good in defeat when third to Heroic Miss, beaten just under two lengths. He’s racing like a rise to 1350m will be ideal and he does tend to save his best for Doomben. Hard to beat.

Long Shot

13 Hot Spring Gold (Bet Now: $19.00) is three weeks between runs for Rob Heathcoate since racing over 1200m at Eagle Farm where he got back to near last in the run and while he did make up solid headway, he wasn’t really threatening behind On The Lead. He has won up to 1500m and while he is a big track horse, he’s going well enough to be considered a threat.

4 Viminele (Bet Now: $3.30) is bursting to win a race for Lindsay Gough and he gets a great chance here IMO. He was backed with confidence at the Sunny Coast two weeks ago and he tried his guts out but just couldn’t quite get there when a narrow second to Heroic Miss. He is a track/distance winner previously and is racing like 1350m will be ideal.

Danger

12 Hellavadancer (Bet Now: $3.60) will land on speed and prove hard to run down. She was on speed at Eagle Farm three weeks ago and she was trucking before being clicked up by Mallyon and away she went, drawing clear to win well. There is depth to this line up but hard to knock how well she is racing.

Long Shot

14 Petunia (Bet Now: $20.00) can run an improved race at odds. She was ridden far too warm when racing three weeks back at Eagle Farm, chasing the hot speed and just couldn’t sustain the run, finishing down the track behind Substantial. I think ridden to her normal pattern, ridden with a sit and a bunny to chase, she’ll be far more effective.

BEST BET: Race Two Number 2 Fukubana

NEXT BEST: Race Nine Number 2 Kinloch

LONG SHOT: Race Three Number 8 Galiafanakis
