Located 40 kilometres east of Rockhampton, the coastal town of Yeppoon holds a handful of meetings per year.

Here are our Yeppoon tips for today.


Four top-two finishes from five starts this preparation spells trouble for the opposition as BELZU lines up in this contest. The local galloper has the scene well covered with recent wins at Bundaberg and here on this track. Two starts back, the Bel Esprit gelding beat home a BM65 field, here over the 1000m sprint with Sonja Wiseman in the saddle. Then last start, he dropped back in trip but rose sharply in grade as he took on the Lightning Open where he put in a huge effort in running second behind Absolut Bonza, beaten just half a length on the line. Today, he steps back up to the 1000m and drops significantly in grade with Sonja Wiseman returning to take the ride. He maps nicely from gate five and will is right in the mix at great each-way odds.


The Angela Stephens-trained JAY JAY is a second-up specialist and after one run back this time in, looks well-placed to give this a shake at odds. The Star Witness gelding finished off his last campaign well, finishing top-two in two of his last three runs. A win over 1050m in a BM69 was followed by a close-up second over 1200m against similar company. He then ended that campaign finishing a respectable fourth in the MM CC Qualifier in Open company. All three of those runs were on his home track at Rockhampton. After a lengthy nine-month stint in the paddock, he returned to work trialling twice before lining up in Open company over the 1050m trip at Callaghan Park. He missed the jump and settled near last. Turning for home, he was spotting Master Jamie ($1.75) at least six lengths and in the run home was hampered several times by Raiden (whom he beat home), but still took ground off the placegetters over the final 200 metres. He will strip fitter for that run and is ideally drawn on the fence today. Sonja Wiseman rode him in that first-up effort and she retains the ride here. Six second-up runs have resulted in three wins and a minor placing which suggests the six-year-old will line up ready to gallop. He is a dual acceptor today (also listed to run in race six) but he looks much better suited in this contest and provided this is where Stephens decides to run him, he looks super value in this line up.
