Race One (13:42) : DPMA Handicap 1110m:
Back Me: Punishing (Best Odds: $4.60) debuted over 1050m where he sat on speed throughout and stuck to the task quite gamely when third to impressive winner Dieters. Should get every chance from gate one and has the run under the belt, plus Jeff Lloyd sticks.
Big Danger: Sidereus Attacks (Best Odds: $16.00) ran in that race mentioned above where he got a long way back in the run before getting out and charging late to finish fourth, beaten just under two lengths. Should improve off that experience and stable rider is aboard.
Roughie: Endless Days (Best Odds: $26.00) debuted here a couple of weeks back and never got into the race when finishing down the track behind Criquette, who has clearly been the best city two year old Brisbane has produced so far this season. Easier here I think and the Blinker are on from a good gate.
Race Two (14:17) : Tox Free Handicap 2000m:
Back Me: Quick Snitzel (Best Odds: $3.50) hasn’t won a race for some time, but gee he gets his chance here IMO. He ran over this track/distance a couple of weeks back and worked home very strongly to run second to Lock’s Legend. Should get back from the wide gate and charge late, and with no Lock’s Legend here, he gets his chance.
Big Danger: Perplexity (Best Odds: $5.50) is the one with upside here. This Chris Munce trained stayer ran fourth in that Lock’s Legend race and was one that did make up solid ground from the back. That was his fourth run back from a break, so he should have upside left and this is a very winnable race.
Roughie: Highly Gentle (Best Odds: $7.00) is a horse who has a stack of upside left. He wasn’t too bad last time out over the mile here behind Beatniks. Added trip and fitness is ideal and senior rider back aboard is noteworthy.
Race Three (14:52) : Kartaway Miniskips Handicap (0MW) 1110m:
Back Me: Groovy Gal (Best Odds: $2.30) resumed over this distance over two weeks back at Ipwsich where she showed excellent gate speed to cross from a tricky draw and from there it was painless, with the mare scoring an effortless win. Lloyd sticks with her and should get the gun run from the gate.
Big Danger: Ebony Rein (Best Odds: $9.00) makes her debut for Chris Munce after formerly being with Terry Walshe. She last ran in the Bowraville Cup where she just didn’t handle that track at all behind Power Receiver. She runs very well when produced on the fresh side, draws well and the 3kg claim is vital.
Roughie: Widow’s Walk (Best Odds: $13.00) is a handy mare that has been freshened up. She was caught wide no cover last time out, so forget she went around. Draws much better here and she could be the knockout horse at huge odds.
Race Four (15:28) : IVECO Handicap (0MW) 1110m:
Back Me: Looks a perfect race for Bearskin (Best Odds: $2.70). He could not have been ridden any better by Tegan Harrison last start and he looked home with about 200m to go, but he was bloused late. Colless on and the Blinker are on for the first time. This is D-Day for this horse IMO.
Big Danger: Tralfaz (Best Odds: $5.50) scored a strong win at the Sunny Coast two back before doing a power of work on speed throughout here and dropped out to finish down the track behind Selfie. Gets much needed weight relief here and should lead comfortably from gate one.
Roughie: Florida Fellow (Best Odds: $16.00) is a talented sprinter that resumes for Bryan Guy. He is a two time first up winner and he has looked pretty sharp in a couple of barrier trials on his home track at the Gold Coast. Draws well and should be whacking away late.
Race Five (16:05) : Nugrow Organics Handicap 1110m:
Back Me: Wicked Intent (Best Odds: $3.70) found the class a bit rich last time out in the Roman Consul when finishing near last behind star youngster Exopshere. He did knuckle at the start also, so that sealed his fate. This is his level and if he can overcome the wide gate, he will take some beating.
Big Danger: Big Tree (Best Odds: $5.50) did a mountain of work last time out here when wide early before pressing on to sit outside the speed yet he fought on so well to run a close second to unbeaten sprinter Blue Desert Moon. Draws much better here is a major contender.
Roughie: Madotti (Best Odds: $8.00) trialled outstandingly prior to resuming in that Blue Desert Moon race where she just got too far back on a day where leaders were impossible to get past. Draws better now and she can sit much closer.
Race Six (16:45) : Superiorpak Handicap (Class 6) 1350m:
Back Me: It’s hard to tip against Trubia (Best Odds: $3.00) here. He was given a beaut steer from Brad Stewart, getting cover from the wide gate before peeling out and letting down strongly to win. He has really found a purple patch at the moment and Stewart remains on from gate one. Looks one of the better bets on the program.
Big Danger: Glendara (Best Odds: $4.20) ran third in that race mentioned above and he was gallant in defeat after doing some work on speed. Should get every chance from the barrier now and senior rider back on.
Roughie: Nicked And Court (Best Odds: $17.00) sat near the speed last time out and fought on well when third to the in form Kris Lees mare Danish Twist. Gets a decent weight drop now, Lloyd remains on, draws better and is a chance for sure.
Race Seven (17:28) : Suez Recycling & Recovery Handicap 1200m:
Back Me: Whiskey Allround (Best Odds: $4.80) for me here. He performed very well during the Brisbane Winter in a host of quality Stakes races. He performs very well fresh and despite no barrier trials he should take some beating from the inside gate.
Big Danger: Jumbo Prince (Best Odds: $7.00) is a classy youngster that kicks off his four year old season here. He performed very well during the Brisbane Winter, with his last start being a closing third to Magicool in the Queensland Derby after getting back near last in the run. No trials, but he is an excellent first up performer and races quite well at Doomben.
Roughie: Aimee (Best Odds: $17.00) resumed over this track/distance a couple of weeks back and never really got into the race when third to all the way winner Charge Account. That horse had a picnic in front and then sprinted hard from the home turn which left Aimee flat footed, but her last 150m or so was pretty good. Harder here, but she has the run under the belt now and does run well when produced second up.
Race Eight (18:05) : Driver Recruitment Handicap (80) 1615m:
Back Me: Col ‘N’ Lil (Best Odds: $3.60) is a Toowoomba who didn’t disgrace herself during the Princess Series in the Brisbane Winter. She has had two runs back from a spell, resuming with a closing fifth to Rosenet over 1350m here before stepping up to this distance and running a game third to in form mare Beatniks. Third up now, so she should be ready to show her best.
Big Danger: Cracco (Best Odds: $11.00) ran over 1350m here a couple of weeks back and didn’t get the best amount of luck when a close up sixth to Desert General. He has placed in both runs at this track/distance, has gate one and an in form apprentice.
Roughie: The Thomas Affair (Best Odds: $26.00) was placed in six runs at this distance before running here a couple of weeks back and running just a fair race behind Beaniks, who ran well last week to frank the form. Easier here and should improve/bounce back.
BEST BET: Race Six Number 8 Trubia
NEXT BEST: Race Four Number 11 Bearskin
VALUE: Race Four Number 1 Florida Fellow
