Sunshine Coast Preview & Best Bets – 19/01/2024


Sunshine Coast Tips for Friday, October 13

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



Race 7:  No.9  KWIK AZ HELL  ($3.10 with Neds)

Trained at the track by Darryl Hansen, KWIK AZ HELL has done everything but win in four starts this preparation and tonight she gets her chance to break the shackles and bring up win number one on home soil. Formerly trained by Annabel Neasham, the Hellbent mare has had four starts for her new stable now where she has found the podium on three occasions. Last start, she sat parked behind the leader who snuck away on the turn. The four-year-old chased strongly but drifted off the track and was then found wanting and had to settle for fourth place, beaten 1.5 lengths on the line. Back to 1200m tonight where she is already a winner at the trip, Jake Bayliss is back for his fourth ride on the mare where after three runner-up finishes, he will also be looking for a change of luck tonight.



Race 6:  No.9  WILLNOTQUIT  ($7.50 with Ladbrokes)

The locally-trained WILLNOTQUIT has found his mojo recently and despite a bad draw, still looks a worthy contender in this contest. Last start, the daughter of Our Vespa gave them a galloping lesson here in a Class 1 Hcp over the mile. Ridden a treat by Ben Thompson that night, she settled midfield on the fence, then approaching the turn, Thompson eased her off the fence where she gathered them in and raced away for an easy win in the end, crossing the line two lengths clear, eased near the line. This looks no harder, however she has drawn the car park and will need some luck to cross from gate 16 and find cover early. James Orman is the pilot tonight and already a winner at the track and distance, she is still considered a winning chance at odds.



Race 5:  No.2  RONLEE GAL  ($23 with BoomBet)

Here’s one for the each-way enthusiasts with the Kelly Schweida-trained RONLEE GAL stepping out third-up tonight and despite the lack of support with the bagman, still rates a solid both-totes chance in this contest. Last start, the Zoustar mare was second-up and showed plenty of improvement when she finished just behind the placegetters in a BM65 Hcp over 1350m at Doomben. Angela Jones is the pilot tonight where the mare gets all the favours from gate one as she steps up to the 1400m here which looks ideal now. Already a winner at the track and placed twice when third-up previously, she is down in grade and at (currently) double-figures, she looks sensational value tonight.
