Sunshine Coast Preview & Best Bets – 21/04/2024


Sunshine Coast Tips for Sunday, April 21

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



Race 7:  No.3  KALENDS

The Tony Gollan-trained KALENDS is third-up today and back in good touch, looks well placed here for back-to-back victories. Last start, the No Nay Never mare showed plenty of improvement off her first-up (unplaced) effort when she finally shook the maiden monkey off her back and after 12 starts, broke through for her first win in a 1650m contest at Doomben. With James Orman on board, she landed in front and was in control the entire way, winning by more than a length on the line. Drawn out today (gate 9), her early gate speed has her settling in the first half-dozen with Orman remaining in charge. Even fitter for two runs back, she looks set to go on with it today.



Race 8:  No.21  GALLERY MASTER 

With half the field out of this contest, it gives the Chris Meehan-trained GALLERY MASTER a big sniff at victory today. Last start, the Under The Louvre gelding resumed off a six-month absence and he wasn’t disgraced, finishing third in a Class 1 set weights event over 1000m, here on a Heavy 8 that day. He drops 5kgs from that run today and gets the gun-run from gate one as well where he maps to settle better than mid-field. Mark Du Plessis is in the saddle for the third time and with the big drop in weight, he can make a nuisance of himself and give this a real shake today.



Race 5:  No.2  DASHING GEE GEE

Gold Coast galloper DASHING GEE GEE boasts an impressive resume and third-up today looks set to put in another big one. Two starts back, the Al Maher gelding had his first start for new trainer, Ryan Tyrell and enjoyed immediate success as he clobbered a BM68 field over 1200m at Beaudesert, winning that event by more than three lengths on the line. Then last start, he took on city class company at Eagle Farm and couldn’t match it with them in a BM70 over the shorter 1000m sprint that day, finishing down the track. Beaten seven lengths over the line. Jai Williams has had success with the four-year-old previously and jumps back aboard for this contest. He gets the gun-run from gate one today and gets his chance to bounce back in this easier event. He looks well worth an each-way ticket here.
