BEST BET 🏆
Race 3: No.3 EARLY THOUGHTS ($3 with Ladbrokes)
The Stuart Kendrick-trained EARLY THOUGHTS is in sensational form this campaign and looks the best of the day in this contest. Last start, the Vancouver gelding made it seven-straight podium finishes when he clobbered a BM70 field on the synthetic track at the Gold Coast. With apprentice Bailey Wheeler on board, he led from barrier to box, putting 1.5 lengths on them in the 1900m event. He also posted the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals as well. He is already a two-time winner at the track and distance here and after the claim here, he carries a half kilo under the limit today. A track specialist on a roll, he looks the testing material here.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 6: No.1 MOUETTE ($3.50 with Ladbrokes)
Gold Coast galloper MOUETTE looks a real promising type and ticks almost all the boxes here to warrant serious consideration today. Last start, the Better Than Ready filly led from go to whoa in a BM62 Hcp over the 800m sprint distance at Ipswich. With Yvette Lewis in the saddle that day, she gave nothing else a chance, putting 2.5 lengths on them across the line. She a new personal best, covering the trip, 1 length slower than benchmark, still the best in this line-up. She also recorded the fastest final 600m, 400m and 200m sectionals for the event. Lewis maintains the ride today and after her claim, the filly carries just half a kilo more than her last start win. Already a winner at the track and distance, she will strip fitter for two runs back and looks right in the firing line for back-to-back wins today.
BEST VALUE 💰
Race 4: No.6 PEARLS ‘N’ PIMMS ($8 with Palmerbet)
Toowoomba galloper PEARLS ‘N’ PIMMS is in career-best form this preparation and looks outstanding value in this contest. Last start, the Spirit Of Boom mare gave her Maiden rivals what for as she crossed the line 3.5 lengths ahead of them over the 1350m at Ipswich. Coming from well back in the field, she finished too well for the 13-strong field, posting the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals as well. Jim Byrne was aboard that day and is sticking with the mare for this assignment. After three-straight top-two finishes this time in, she will be at peak fitness today and take a ton of beating here at odds.
