Race 3 - 1:38PM KURRAWA SURF CLUB Class 1 Handicap (1400 METRES)
Best Bet 🏆No. 1 ROMAN REPUBLIC $1.45 Bet Now!
Rating lengths above this field, the David Vandyke-trained ROMAN REPLUBLIC looks a good place to start your multiples and is our best for the day. Last start, the Roman Emperor gelding came off a big Maiden win at Doomben when he a sharp rise in grade, taking on a Class 2 at the same track. He ended up second in a tight finish. He ran the 1200m, 2.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, which is 10 lengths better than any other in this contest. He also posted the fastest final 800m, 600m and 400m sectionals for the race. He draws gate six here and maps to settle on pace. Back to Class 1 company here, he looks the whole package.
Race 4 - 2:13PM MOO MOOS BENCHMARK 75 Handicap (900 METRES)
Next Best 🥈No. 4 BEWARE $8.00 Bet Now!
The locally-trained BEWARE looks well placed here as a genuine winning chance. Last start, the Exceed And Excel gelding finished second in a BM70 at Toowoomba over the 870m sprint. He ran that trip, 2.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this line up. Drawn the fence here, he maps to be with front runners on settling and already boasting a solid home-track record, he looks one of the main chances in this contest.
Race 6 - 3:33PM MAGGIE CHOO Class 3 Plate (1800 METRES)
Best Value 💰No. 5 TOUCAN SAM $4.40 Bet Now!
The Tony Gollan-trained TOUCAN SAM has been in consistent form this preparation and gets another chance here to bring up his first win for this preparation. Last start, the Tavistock gelding led a BM65 field, here over 1800m and fought like a caged tiger before finishing third in a three-way go to the line, beaten less than a length. He ran the trip just half a length slower than benchmark, still the best in this field. He faces similar company here and should have little trouble finding the front from gate six. He is now four starts into this preparation and should be at his peak now. After the claim, the five-year-old carries 2kgs less than last start which may prove the difference in the end.
