Exactly why this metropolitan standard meeting is at the Gold Coast a week before the rich Magic Millions day is anyone's guess. No one can give us a real answer.
The Gold Coast has been hit by heavy rain but has had some drying conditions as well. The problem is heavy rain is predicted for Saturday. Weather forecasts in south east Queensland are wildly inaccurate at this time of the year because for some reason one part can get 200mm while two kilometres away gets nothing.
So be very careful although the track should be in some stage of wet which means horses getting wide late in the day have an advantage here. In other words a day for caution especially as the fields get bigger as the day wears on.
