Sunshine Coast Preview & Best Bets – 17/09/2023


Sunshine Coast Tips for Sunday, September 17

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



Race 2:  No.2  OBEROI PRINCESS  ($2.20 with BoomBet)

The Chris Munce-trained OBEROI PRINCESS hasn’t missed a podium finish in her five starts to date and with conditions in her favour today, she looks set to keep that record intact. Last start, the three-year-old filly was second-up when she finished third, here in a 1000m Maiden Hcp. Doing her best work late, she chased home the two leaders and took ground off them over the final 100m of the race. She returns to the 1200m today which looks more suitable and has Kyle Wilson-Taylor returning for the ride after steering her into second place at Ipswich two starts back. Third-up and even fitter today, Munce slaps the blinkers on for the first time and with a trouble-free run here, she looks a serious chance of breaking through today.



Race 3:  No.2  BAIYKA  ($4.80 with bet365)

Coffs Harbour trainer, Aiden St Vincent makes the five-hour trek north over the border today and saddles-up BAIYKA who is in great touch this time in and looks well placed to bring up career-win number seven today. Last start, the Dream Ahead mare saw the Corbould Park track for the first time and did well to beat all but one home in a BM65, here over the 1000m sprint. James Orman has his second ride on the mare today who should be at her peak after four starts this preparation. A clear run home today can see her go one better in this contest.



Race 5:  No.11  KWIK AZ HELL  ($4.60 with Ladbrokes)

The Darryl Hansen-trained KWIK AZ HELL is third-up here and having her third start for the stable, looks well placed to go one better in this contest. Last start, the Hellbent mare was unwanted in the market ($31) when she turned heads by beating all but one to the line in a Class 1 Plate against city gallopers over 1200m trip at Doomben. She returns to provincial class today and will strip even fitter after her two starts this time in. Jake Bayliss has been in the saddle for her past two starts and sticks with her here. Formerly with Annabel Neasham, the four-year-old has managed five podium finishes from her eight career starts to date and has the stats here to suggest she is a genuine winning chance today.
