Previous Gold Coast Tips:

November 17

Race 3 - 1:53PM GCBA QTIS Three-Years-Old Maiden Handicap (1800 METRES)
Drawn to win here, TOP LUCK has been knocking on the door lately with two minor placings at his last two outings. Two starts back, the three-year-old filly finished a close-up third behind Mishani Roman over 1300m at Toowoomba. Then last start she sat right behind the leader all the way and finished a game second, chasing hard all the way home. The winner was Coastal Prince who we tipped last week at the Sunshine Coast where he won again. Going on that form, the Ben Currie-trained filly looks very hard to beat here.
Result (3rd)

Race 5 - 3:08PM HANSON IMAGECRETE 0 - 60 Handicap (1200 METRES)
In good touch since resuming from a two-month break, GRANDIOSO can measure-up here. Two starts back, the Sebring gelding was an impressive winner at Kilcoy over 1200m in class 2 company where he put nearly two lengths on his opposition. Last start, he missed the jump and had to chase hard over the 100m trip but wasn’t disgraced in finishing third behind Aggravate. Drops in grade here and looks well placed among these.
Result (unplaced)

Race 7 - 4:28PM McINNES WILSON LAWYERS Class 4 Handicap (1400 METRES) 
Set for a second crack at class 4 company, TIME TO PLAY is now fit enough and ticks the boxes that suggest she can get the job done here. Two starts back she took her first shot at a class 4 (fillies and mares) but found Boiling and Dapper One a little too slick on the day. Last start she dropped back to class 3 company and made easy work of that, beating home Whack’em by more than a length on the line. Ryan Plumb has had two rides on the Jet Spur mare and is yet to taste defeat as he remains in the saddle for this. Drawn the fence, she maps perfectly and will be on the speed from barrier rise. No Boiling or Dapper One here, she looks right in the mix.
Result (1st - $2.50)

November 10

Race 4 - 12:38PM ROSIE'S Class 4 Handicap (1200 METRES)
Sunshine Coast visitor ZOFF ‘N’ OFF looks more at home here as the five-year-old boasts two wins from three starts at the track and trip. He is in good touch lately as he comes off a win at Beaudesert in a class 2 over 1200m then jumped to class 4 company here and made that look even easier, winning that 1200m event by 2.5 lengths. Racing against similar class here and rising just 1.5kgs from that last start win, the Zoffany gelding looks the goods again.
Result (Unplaced)

Race 7 - 2:38PM LJ HOOKER NERANG QTIS Three-Years-Old Maiden Handicap (1200 METRES)
Second-up after five months off the scene, the David Vandyke-trained SECRET SPIRIT will be out to break his maiden here. Finishing just behind the placegetters prior to his spell, he returned to the track with a solid effort when finishing third in a 1000m maiden at Ipswich. Rising to the 1200m trip here, he should strip fitter for that first-up effort and jumping from gate one, Ryan Plumb will give him a gun-run and could take catching here.
Result (Won - $1.70)

Race 9 - 4:05PM LJ HOOKER PACIFIC PINES Class 1 Handicap (1200 METRES)
One at good odds here could be the Ben Ahrens-trained MISS AMANDA who ended her maiden status past start when breaking through at Beaudesert first-up off a nine-month spell. She jumped and led and sprinted well on straightening and held off the challenges on a wet track. Back on top of the ground here, she looks well placed to hold her own again and will take catching.
Result (2nd)

November 3

Race 2 - 1:33PM 1029 HOT TOMATO Class 3 Handicap (1800 METRES)
Track and distance specialist STRAIGHT HOME looks well placed here to make two from three this preparation. Resuming, the five-year-old proved too good over 1400m here in class 2 company. Stepping up in class and distance next-up, he found that class 3 field a little sharp finishing mid-field that day over 1600m. He looks much better suited here in this company and should enjoy a mid-field sit with cover. Should prove hard to beat in the run home.
Result (2nd)

Race 5 - 3:43PM SIMON CAREY BenchMark 75 Handicap (1200 METRES)
Third-up here, the locally-trained DIAMONDS ARE should strip fit enough to give this a real shake. Although the five-year-old’s stats suggest he handles wet conditions, his last two starts on heavy tracks certainly contradicts that and I am banking on him appreciating a return to dry-track racing here. Resuming from a six-month break, he put in a solid performance to grab second prize behind Just Orm (our tip for race 6 at Doomben today), in a BM75 at Doomben on a good track. I suggest we forget his last start at Doomben in the heavy going where he finished well back behind Hingus Rose over the 1200m trip. Back on top of the ground here he looks ideally placed. Drawing gate three, he will enjoy a perfect sit in running and fitter for those two runs back, he will be powering home at the finish.
Result (Unplaced)

Race 7 - 5:07PM LIV AT NIGHT Class 3 Handicap (1400 METRES) 
On a quick turnaround here, the Ben Currie-trained GREYWOLF will be out to go one better than his last start second at the Sunshine Coast last Sunday. He gave a great account of himself at Corbould Park, coming from well back to beat home all but Sky Lake in a class 4 over 1400m, beaten a lip. He drops back to class 3 opposition here and if he brings that last start form with him, he will prove very hard to hold out.
Result (Won - $6.00)

October 20

Race 3 - 12:28PM ATTWOOD MARSHALL LAWYERS Class 1 Handicap (1800 METRES)
Third-up here, the Chris Waller trained IT’S CHOUX TIME should be ready to take on the extra trip and the conditions will suit. Resuming this campaign, the mare finished a respectable third in a class 2 here over an unsuitable 1400m, then next up was fifth (beaten half a length) in a blanket finish where five runners crossed the line together. The Jimmy Choux mare climbs to a more suitable 1800m here and will be nearing her peak after two runs back. She will be there at the finish.
Result (3rd)

Race 4 - 1:03PM ATTWOOD MARSHALL LAWYERS Class 1 Handicap (1800 METRES)
Another who is third-up and ready to win is LAST LIGHT who recently transferred to the Gold Coast from the Simon Zahra stables in Victoria. Resuming from six months off the scene, the Casino Prince mare ran a bold first-up race here to finish just behind the placegetters in a class 1 over 1200m. Second-up, in class 2 company at Lismore, she beat all but one home, after trying to lead all the way over 1516m. Those two runs should have her primed for this. Wet track form is a mystery but take her on trust here.
Result (1st - $5.50)

Race 9 - 4:19PM REVELSTONE STUD BenchMark 75 Handicap (1400 METRES)
Locally-trained by Helen Page, SHARPAMAL ticks most boxes here and looks a big threat. Five of the Jet Spur gelding’s past seven starts have been on wet tracks and he has managed to win two of those. Since resuming from a spell, the five-year-old made his mark first-up finishing second in class 4 company at Ipswich over 1100m. Second-up, he wasn’t disgraced when fourth behind Beau Isa in a BM70 over the longer 1300m journey run on a wet track. Yet to finish unplaced over this trip, the gelding has solid wet track form and looks right in the mix among this company.
Result (2nd)
