Back to a Wednesday at the Gold Coast with small field sizes but some tricky races. The track has been playing lightning fast and there has again been little rain. But as we say every week, be alert for storms as the track can deteriorate quickly.

Skinny Play:  1/1,4,9/4,14/2,7

Wide Play:  1,2,3,4/1,4,9,10/4,5,10,14/1,2,7,9

Next Best Bet:  R2 – 6. DARKTOWN STRUTTER

R2 - 2.07pm. CHINESE NEW YEAR RACEDAY 17 FEB Benchmark 75 Handicap - 900m.

No6 DARKTOWN STRUTTER (NEXT BEST BET) Unbeaten this track and unbeaten at this distance. Forget last-start failure at Doomben when found the 1100m too far. Very fast and has the top jockey to overcome the outside barrier.

 

No5 BRAT ATTACK winner this track and distance three starts back and no luck in a harder race this track last time. Should be running home hard off a hot pace here.

 

No1 I AM THE GENERAL Had some good form in Victoria before coming north and showed plenty of pace to win at Gatton last start. Has an each-way hope here.

 

No2 LIFE'S LIKE THAT Has been running well at short course races at the provincials of late. Won a feature race at Kilcoy three runs back and not a bad effort when third at latest start at Kilcoy.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No5 BRAT ATTACK

R3 - 2.45pm. MARCH TO THE MILLIONS QTIS Three-Years-Old Maiden Plate - 900m.

No1 ALLEVIATOR First starter who has had four trials, winning two of them including his most recent at Doomben. This is very weak and on trial form should be hard to beat.

 

No7 HOLLYDEEN from an in-form stable and has been placed at only start in a Murwillumbah maiden. Would have to improve only slightly to win this.

 

No10 MOTHER TO RACE HER Game second at only race start at Murwillumbah when she didn't have a lot of luck. Looks a big chance here.

 

No3 LOVESON Well beaten last start at the Gold Coast but previously was third behind a very smart horse at the Sunshine Coast over 1000m. Not the worst here on that run.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No3 LOVESON

R4 - 3.25pm. UBET OPEN Handicap - 1800m.

No1 DANCE ON HEROES (BEST BET) Once looked like being a stakes horse but never lived up to that. Nevertheless has won six races including one at Lismore two runs back. No luck in a much harder race last time. Has a claim and has won up to 2000m. Gets plenty of ticks.

 

No2 EXOTERIC Is a good Sydney stayer having his first run since a break at 1800m. This is very weak for an open company race and should be respected.

 

No4 QUEEN OF WANDS Form has been okay without being anything brilliant. Battled away at 1350m last start when fifth and out to a distance which suits here.

 

No3 COURT'S STAR Form in tougher races has been poor. But has a good record this track and distance and should lead here. Could win without shocking.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No3 COURT'S STAR

R5 - 4.05pm. DOME PACKAGE RESUMES 17 FEB Colts, Geldings & Entires Maiden Plate - 1200m.

No4 FAME THREEANDSEVEN Much better run at second start this area when second at Murwillumbah. Has a 3kgs claim here and a good barrier so looks to be one of the best hopes.

 

No1 BETAJET Has been placed three of past four starts and has the top jockey here. Another race which is just average and looks to be one of the main chances.

 

No10 RIVER BOY Has to be a hope here on last-start third in a Sunshine Coast maiden when probably could have won. Each-way claims look strong.

 

No9 NEVER IN DOUBT Placed only once from seven starts but wasn't far away last time at Doomben in a similar race to this. Ready to race well now.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No10 RIVER BOY

R6 - 4.45pm. JEWEL OF THE COAST RACEDAY 17 MARCH Fillies & Mares Maiden Plate- 1200m.

No14 SPLITTER Ran four seconds in a row at Ipswich before failing in a far harder Magic Millions Maiden this track last start. Had little luck last start and looks the one to beat here from the inside barrier.

 

No4 FAST SUN Has had a few chances but is building up to a win. Last-start third at the Sunshine Coast was a good pointer for this. Looks a very good each-way hope.

 

No10 SWEET CAVIAR Has had a stable change and now trained this track. Has been placed twice this track and has had a career with little luck in most of her races. Caught the eye when second in a recent Gold Coast trial.

 

No5 FATZ Placed past two starts in this company at Beaudesert and Doomben. This no harder than last start and in a weak race looks a strong hope.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No4 FAST SUN

R7 - 5.20pm. GIRLS ON TOUR EVENT 17 MARCH Class 1 Handicap - 1100m.

No2 SCORCHA If she could reproduce her trial track - she has won two impressively - she would be a top-class horse. Hasn't run since August but on recent trail win can also win this.

 

No1 PRIDE OF DESTINY Loomed to win at the 250m but ran out of puff when fourth first up at the Sunshine Coast last time. Fitter now and well drawn. A chance here.

 

No7 ALASTRIONA Has been placed at her past three starts in similar races to this. Has handy form this track and looks major player.

 

No9 SPLASH OF CRISTAL Can go fast in her races and has won this track. Last 100m may be a worry here but good last-start second in Toowoomba gives her a good chance.

 

VALUE RUNNER: No7 ALASTRIONA
