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



Race 4:  No.2  MOVEITMOVEIT  ($3 with bet365)

Stuart Kendrick saddles-up MOVEITMOVEIT here who is third-up today and shooting for back-to-back victories. Last start, we sent the Maurice gelding out as our Best Bet 🏆 for the day and he didn’t disappoint, finishing too well for them in the BM58 Hcp, here over 1300m. Second-up and fitter that day, he carried the 60kgs well as Ben Thompson drove him to the line to take home the major prize. Today, he has gate six and maps to settle in the first half dozen. Thompson sticks with him and with a trouble-free run again, he looks the goods for two-straight here.



Race 2:  No.7  TOKYO BANDIT  ($2.70 with Ladbrokes)

The Lindsay Hatch-trained TOKYO BANDIT is second-up today and ready to shake the maiden monkey off his back. Last start, the Dissident gelding was first-up after six months in the paddock and did well to beat all but one home in a Toowoomba Maiden over 1200m. Settling back in the field, he ran home strongly to finish within half a length of victory that day. He draws gate seven today but gets back in his races anyway as he maps to settle near the tail in this contest. Stepping up to the 1400m here looks ideal as he is reunited with Jake Molloy who rode him to successive podium finishes last preparation. Runner-up when second-up last campaign, he looks the one to beat in this event.



Race 6:  No.2  GRANITE PRINCE  ($7 with BlueBet)

The Michael Nolan-trained GRANITE PRINCE is high flying this time in and looks a solid chance of rolling the race favourite here today. Last start, the Rothesay gelding made it back-to-back wins when he embarrassed his rivals in a BM60 Hcp over 1210m at Toowoomba. Third-up and ready to rock that day, he landed in front and that was all she wrote as he went on to put six lengths on them over the line. Today, Melita Castle has the reins and after her claim, the three-year-old carries 3kgs less than the topweight and favourite (Just Super) and that could be the difference here. The bagman have the back-to-back winner (currently) at $7 for this race which looks well worth an investment today.
