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



Race 7:  No. 6  KHAALIS  ($2  bet365)

With almost half the field scratched here, the Chris Waller-trained KHAALIS has had his chances enhanced to bring up his first win this time in today. Last start, the English-bred galloper was having his fourth start in this campaign when he beat all but one home (beaten a nose) in a BM72 over 2070m at Doomben. He ran his last 600m, 5.3 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best here and posted the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race. James Orman has the reins for the first time today and over a little extra ground here, it just might make the difference. Already a winner on the poly-track, he will take beating in this contest.



Race 9:  No. 10  RELIABLE RUBY  ($4.80  bet365)

The Chris Munce-trained RELIABLE RUBY is in great touch this time in and looks set for a big effort in this company. Last start, the Reliable Man mare finished half a length shy of victory in a Class 3 Hcp over 1000m, here on the turf track. She ran her last 600m, 3.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line-up by more than two lengths. She also recorded the fastest final 800m to 200m for the race. She maps to settle better than mid-field behind all the early pace here and Samantha Collett sticking with her today. This is her first look at the synthetic track but she has the runs on the board and after four starts this preparation, she should be at her peak for this assignment. Down in the weights, she looks the testing material.



Race 5:  No. 4  REGAL EDITION  ($4.80  Ladbrokes)

The Kelly Schweida-trained REGAL EDITION has enjoyed a successful campaign to date and looks well placed here to add another victory to his resume. Last start, the Rubick gelding bounced back from consecutive unplaced runs when he destroyed a BM58 field over 1400m at the Gold Coast. Finishing four lengths ahead of them, he ran his last 600m, 2.3 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this field. He also posted the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race. Runner-up at his only start on the synthetic track, James Orman is back in the saddle today and the gelding is poised for back-to-back victories here.
