Here are our Rockhampton race tips for today.


Second-up today, the locally-trained HINVICTUS looks well placed to bring up his first win for new trainer Bill Weeks. Formerly with the Larry Fairhall stables at Cessnock, the Hinchinbrook gelding was first-up off an 18-week spell last start when finishing third in BM58 company, here over 1100m. He covered that trip, 3.7 lengths slower than benchmark but that was good enough to rank number one here, by 4 lengths. He also managed to run the fastest final 600m, 400m and 200m sectionals for the event. After the claim here, he carries the same weight and fitter for that first-up run, he looks right in the mix today at odds.


Another locally-trained galloper is ALEYSA’S DREAM who has finished top-two at her past six starts and looks just as threatening here. Last start, the Carrara filly lined up in the Jewel Qualifier where she beat all but one home after trying to lead all the way (not an easy task on the big Callaghan Park track). She ran the trip in even time, better than her rivals here managed at their last starts. Today, she draws well again in gate four and has Ryan Wiggins remaining in the saddle. Plenty of early speed here so Wiggins may even decide to take a sit on the filly. Three starts into this preparation now means she will be at peak fitness for this and she looks the one to beat again.


Having her first start for local trainer Adrian Coome, UNCOMPLICATED has only had three weeks off and brings some solid southern form into this event. Last start, she clearly didn’t handle the heavy Corbould Park track at the Sunshine Coast, finishing down the track that day. Ironically, she ran out the 1400m trip, 5.8 lengths slower than benchmark, but ran her last 600m, 4.3 lengths quicker than the mark. Both rate number one in this field. She will drop back here and maps to settle in the back half of the field. Ash Butler takes the reins today and he has the nous to have her in a winning position at the top of the long home straight here. I am expecting the filly to be storming home late and she will give this a real shake.
