Gold Coast Tips 10/09/2022

Our form expert provides Gold Coast tips for today’s horse racing at Gold Coast Racecourse and gives his best bets.



Race 7:  No.5  DIASONIC  ($4.20 with Palmerbet)

The Richard Laming-trained DIASONIC sheds the blinkers today and from an ideal draw, gets his chance to bring up win number for this campaign. Last start, the Reset gelding wasn’t far away when finishing fourth in a Class 3 over 1825m at Eagle Farm. He ran that out, 6.3 lengths quicker than benchmark, a new personal best and the best in this line-up by more than 3 lengths. He should find this a little easier as he maps to be box-seating on settling and have the first crack at them in the run home. Rock-hard fit after five runs this time in, he can give this lot a real fright today.



Race 5:  No.4  SWANSTON  ($2.60 with bet365)

Grafton galloper SWANSTON heads north of the border for his third look at the Gold Coast track where he is a good chance for back-to-back victories today. Last start, the Smart Missile gelding registered his first win for the year when he surprised punters by taking out a BM0-72 over the mile at Doomben. Sent out a $21 chance, he put almost two lengths on them, carrying 59kgs that day. He covered the trip, 7.3 lengths quicker than benchmark, a new personal best for him and the best here by 3 lengths. It appears he has found his mojo again and already a two-time winner over this trip, he can give this contest a real shake today.



Race 6:  No.3  HODGSON  ($5.50 with BlueBet)

Local galloper HODGSON has hit the ground running this time in as he shoots for the hat-trick today. Last start, the Hinchinbrook gelding clobbered a Class 4 field when he put 3 lengths on them over 1100m at Gatton. He ran the last 600m, 4 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this field. He also posted the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race. After the claim, he carries just 55kgs for this assignment and already a winner here and a two-time winner at the track, he looks a genuine contender today at good odds.
