Previous Toowoomba Tips:

February 16

Race 1 - 5:05PM NEIL MANSELL TRANSPORT Ratings Band 0 - 60 Handicap (1870 METRES) 
Locally-trained by Steve Tregea, KOPELLA now steps beyond the mile for the first time and based on his latest effort here two weeks ago, the extra trip will suit. Three starts back, he won a BM60 over 1400m at the Sunshine Coast hanging on gamely. He then finished just behind the placegetters nest start over the mile in a class 3 contest. Last start, he was caught too far back but finished on to take home third prize in a BM65 here at his home track. He drops in grade here and after the claim, he ends up right on the limit at 54kgs. Over this trip, he should prove hard to hold out.
Result (1st - $2.50)

Race 3 - 6:20PM AG RIGGING Class 4 Handicap (1210 METRES)
A dual acceptor for Doomben, trainer Troy Pascoe has opted to keep his mare STAR ADELE on her home track where she will prove mighty hard to beat. The Jet Spur mare has really hit her straps this preparation, winning two of her past three. A big win in a class 1 here was followed up with a bronze medal at Ipswich where she finished like a train but was caught too far back in the 1200m class 2 event. Pascoe then stepped her up to class 3 level and she showed no signs of stress as she finished best to take that out as well. She steps up in class again here but looks more than capable of testing this field on her home track.
Result (3rd)

Race 5 - 7:30PM JOE WAGNER GROUP Maiden Plate (1640 METRES)
Tony Gollan’s mare RABBIOSA is still a maiden after 10 race starts but is more than capable of breaking through here. The mare finished third behind Consular and The Candy Man four starts back, then next start, went one better finishing second behind The Candy Man who also went one better, winning the 1660m maiden at Doomben. Another unplaced run at the same track was followed by a much improved effort at the Sunshine Coast where she finished third behind Zouzouzalo hitting the line well. Gollan is now trying a different track and putting the mare under lights for the first time. It could pay dividends here.
Result (1st - $2.40)

February 9

Race 2 - 5:50PM TAYLOR BUILDING GROUP Class 2 Handicap (1200 METRES)
Local trainer Kevin Kemp has the promising filly DYNAMISANTE lining up here and looks better than an even chance of winning. The three-year-old is coming off consecutive wins and should have no trouble facing up to class two company here. She broke her maiden status here two starts back over 1100m then franked that form by winning a class one for fillies and mares last start at Warwick over the same trip. She takes on mixed company here and steps up the 1200m as well but will be even fitter from her first-up effort at Warwick. In the mix here.
Result (scratched)

Fresh off a 10-week break, RED PRINCE is a track specialist and is drawn to win. The Red Dazzler entire finished top three in five of his six appearances last time in and has won first-up before. Beat all but Von Richter home here last start over the mile trip. This is a shorter trip however he will be on fresh legs and is yet to miss a top three finish in eight runs here. I’m expecting a bold showing first-up.
Result (unplaced)

Race 6 - 8:15PM MOORE TRAILERS Class 1 Handicap (1625 METRES)
The locally-trained ROCKING OSSIE lines up here knocking on the door for a win after finishing all around it at his past four starts. Last start, the Easy Rocking gelding finished well but fell short and had to settle for third prize in a class one over 1500m at Warwick. He steps up to the mile here which will suit him better. He is a track and trip winner and has Beau Appo back aboard who steered him to his most recent victory. He looms as a big threat in this.
Result (unplaced)

February 2

Race 2 - 5:45PM TOOWOOMBA PLASTICS BenchMark 65 Handicap (1625 METRES)
Local trainer Lindsay Hatch has ADSUM lining up here. After a string of minor placings, the Sebring gelding finally broke his maiden two starts back on this track, winning the 1640m event by a comfortable two lengths. Last start, he wasn’t disgraced when finishing third behind Volomite in a class 2 contest at the Sunshine Coast. Should find this BM65 a little easier and he is back on his home track. 
Result (unplaced)

Race 3 - 6:15PM VALE PETER OVERELL Class 2 Plate (1050 METRES)
Another locally-trained gelding, EIGHT OVER hit a purple patch of form before coming unstuck at the Sunshine Coast last start. Prior to that, he won consecutive races on this track beginning with his maiden win over the short 870m trip. He won that by more then three lengths and franked that win by going back-to-back next start. He stepped up to the 1050m trip and on a soft track, won the BM0-62 by half a length. He then finished runner-up at Ipswich in a class 2 before failing in class 3 company at the Sunshine Coast. The Lonhro gelding drops back to class 2 grade here and back on his home track, will be hard to beat.
Result (1st - $2.20)

Race 4 - 6:45PM FURNEYS Class 3 Plate (1200 METRES)
Out of the Kevin Kemp stables, TISANI MAGIC comes into this nicely at the weights and should prove the one to beat. Three starts back, the Raheeb gelding won a tight finish on this track and distance in class 1 company. He was then runner-up at Dalby in a class 2, beaten a head, then followed that up with another close second at Warwick behind Money Talk in a class 2 event. After the claim, the four-year-old comes into this a kilo under the limit and although up in class will be hard to beat here. 
Result (2nd)
