Next Best Bet:  R3 - 2 .RANCHO MONTOYA

Best Roughie: R6 – 10. LASCAR

R1 - 11.37am. Eloise Gannon Foundation Rating Band 0-70 Hcp - 1050m.

No4 MISHANI EL LOBO This is far easier than last start when well beaten in a class field. Has drawn well and placed behind some very smart horses last campaign.


No6 IMPREGNABLE Didn't have a lot of luck when fourth in a harder race last start. Won two on end previously and another with a good barrier here.


No1 MR HENNESSY Speedy type who engaged in a speed battle when dropped out in a far harder race last time. Drawn well which is a must from this start.


No8 NAKANAI Old timer who can win a race at big odds when he is in the mood. Good third at the Gold Coast last start gives him a chance here.



R2 - 12.12pm. The Big Chop Benchmark 75 Hcp - 1050m.

No6 LIVE FAST Form was very good before last start before unlucky run at Doomben in a similar race to this. Has drawn to get the run of the race here.


No12 PUFF'S GIRL Speedy mare who hasn't raced since April. Has a good fresh record and not disgraced in Sydney last campaign.


No13 TRUE PASSION Has plenty of pace but has been tiring quickly of late. Drawn well here and should be fitter.


No7 GRACIDA Ran brilliant time when won a race at the Sunshine Coast over 1000m. Has since won a trial with the only problem here being a bad barrier.



R3 - 12.47pm. Moda Events Portside Three Year Old - 1350m.

No2 RANCHO MONTOYA (NEXT BEST BET) Classy horse who won his first start at Ipswich and then second to a Hong Kong bound horse his only other run. Has been freshened up and won a recent Doomben trial in nice fashion.


No4 UMBERTO Unlucky when second this track two runs back when protested unsuccessfully. He then won at the Gold Coast. This harder but on the up.


No5 FRANCISCA Won a maiden and then took the step up to win a race against older mares at the Sunshine Coast. Definite star of the future and well placed here.


No6 DANSEZ Was a consistent placegetter before strong win at the Gold Coast last start. This harder but each-way claims.



R4 - 1.22pm. Eaton Services Group Open - 1600m.

No3 SHEISWHATSHEIS (BEST BET) Loves this track and distance where she has won five times from nine goes. Loves to roll along in the lead and looks the leader again here. She has not been harshly weighted.


No8 PINDAN PEARL Has been a model of consistency without winning since coming to Queensland. This looks an ideal race for her and has strong each-way hopes.


No5 ALPHA BEAT Has won in stakes company over this distance and much better run last start when third this track. Wants some rain but still a hope.


No1 RULING FORCE Getting up in the weights but good fourth this track behind a smart horse last start. This distance suits.



R5 - 1.57pm. Brisbane BMW Open Hcp - 1350m.

No2 FLAMBOYER Probably at best on soft tracks and won't get that here. But is down in the weights after a 3kgs apprentice's claim and looks the likely leader here. Looks ready to break his duck at this track and distance.


No7 L'ENTRECOTE Only fair first-up but has a very good second-up record and should be fitter now. Always an each-way hope these races.


No1 CHARLIE BOY Hasn't won for 18 months but has a great record this track and distance in stakes races. No luck last start when fourth this track and looking for 1350m now. Gets his chance to win again here.


No4 STEEL ZIP Old timer who loomed to win last start but peaked to finish fifth. Likes this track and starting to get down in the weights. Each-way here.



R6 - 2.32pm. Northside Women's Health Benchmark 75 - 2200m.

No6 STANLEY Won two aces on end and then a fighting second this track last start at 2200m. Gets in here very well at the weights after a 3kgs claim and should run this trip right out.


No10 LASCAR (BEST ROUGHIE) Forget last start when saw plenty of the outside fence in a similar race to this. Previous form was solid and should get a much better run from a handy barrier.


No3 DEVIL HAWK Related to some top horses and showed a good turn of foot when won his first start this area. This is no harder and is another who is very fit.


No1 LOVING HOME Racing well under big weights and has plenty of kilos again even after an apprentice's claim here. But he is rock solid fit and an each-way hope again.



R7 - 3.12pm. Clayfield Jewellery Class 3 Plate - 1600m.

No6 NATURAL BLACK Has had a few chances but suited in a race like this. Gets 1.5kgs claim and two recent minor placings have been behind some handy horses.


No7 PLEASED Former Godolphin horse who is now trained in the northern rivers. Strong winner this track last start and should go on with it now.


No12 ZOFF OF THE WORLD Looked winner everywhere but the line last start at the Sunshine Coast when second. Racing well enough to trouble most of these.


No13 GYPSY MISS Good effort when second this track and distance last time when had no luck. Has a top jockey and good barrier. Each-way here.



R8 - 3.52pm. Chemist Warehouse Class 6 Plate - 1200m.

No12 TREVINDER Has been a long time since he won but if he is ever getting back in the winner’s circle it should be today. He is well drawn, down in the weights and last start was third to two in form and classy horses.


No13 KHALAMA A class mare who has won her past two starts this track. Has had a freshen up and looks most promising. The only worry is the barrier.


No6 KHALEESI Honest galloper who scored an impressive win here at last start. Has a few issues but on his day is up to winning this race.


No1 EL SASSO Has shown form in much stronger races in Sydney but struggling this time in. Won a Doomben trial last week in very good fashion which indicates he may be getting back to his best.



R9 - 4.32pm. Got It Covered Benchmark 75 - 1350m.

No13 AHNDRAS Class mare who is probably better at a longer distance. But she has trialled twice for her comeback and rates highly in a tricky race.


No14 MANIAS Good winner two starts back and then a handy third last time when struck some trouble. This looks suitable race and is one of the few chances drawn well.


No9 ELJETEM Has not been racing up to his best but showed some form last time when no luck at midfield in a 1600m race this track. Back to a better distance for him now.


No5 CONSTANTINE Back in his right grade here after running in the Grafton and Sunshine Coast Guineas. Has won four races and looks nicely placed.
