Here are our Gatton tips for today.


Toowoomba trainer Kevin Kemp saddles up two runners here with LINTHORPE LAD being the prominent one who is shooting for back-to-back victories today. Last start, the Mahisara gelding broke through for his maiden win in a 1200m contest at Toowoomba. With Nozi Tomizawa aboard, he sat in the one-one and then pounced in the run home to take the honours that day. Today, he sees the Gatton track for the first time but has Tomizawa sticking with him and from gate four, should settle better than mid-field with cover. Yet to miss a top-four finish, the three-year-old looks well placed here.


The Mark Currie-trained MAEVILA RULER has come back a much stronger horse this time in and will take beating today. After finishing second in a Dalby Maiden two starts back, the Tycoon Ruler gelding went one better last start. On his home track (Toowoomba), he came from well back to take out the 1300m contest by almost a length on the line. Today, he draws to do no work in gate four and will most likely settle in the back half of the field as he steps up to the mile here. With Bobby El-Issa jumping aboard for the first time, the lightly-raced four-year-old looks a force in this line up.
