Sunshine Coast (Friday) Betting Preview & Tips
Betting tips for every race at Sunshine Coast. Today’s best bet is in race 7.
A Friday at the Sunshine Coast with reasonable size fields and some value in most races. One thing about the Sunshine Coast is it has been something of a favourites graveyard of late so be careful taking short odds. Once again it will suit those getting to the crown of the track first. Yet again watch out for sudden storms which will see a track down grade.

R1 - 6.45pm. HIGGINS COATINGS Colts, Geldings and Entires Maiden Handicap - 1200m.
No1 TATOI Dreadful field and the top weight has the best form by a long way which isn't saying much. Second-up here and should be improved on first-up fourth at Dalby.
No2 SO YOU WISH
No5 NIGHT WHISPER
VALUE RUNNER: No2 SO YOU WISH
R2 - 7.15pm. TOD CONSULTING PTY LTD Fillies and Mares Maiden Handicap - 1200m.
No1 GAMBLING DOLL All three runs have been very good including a last-start second this track. Not much depth here, so will be very hard to beat.
No5 WHERE'S THE RING
VALUE RUNNER: No8 GINGO
R3 - 7.45pm. CONSTRUCTIONS 161 QTIS Three-Years-Old Maiden Plate - 1600m.
No1 DELAGO EDITION Two runs since a spell have been good in similar races to this with a second at the Gold Coast and a fourth last time this track. The one to beat.
No2 GRANVILLE ISLAND
No11 ROCK DANCER
VALUE RUNNER: No11 ROCK DANCER
R4 - 8.15pm. SWEET CHARLOTTE STUDIOS Class 2 Handicap - 1200m.
No2 KING RAGNAR Looks a promising type and although didn't appear to fully handle the wet track was a good winner here last time. This isn't much harder and a horse on the up.
No3 PINCH MOUNTAIN
No5 MADLUCE MISSILE
VALUE RUNNER: No1 CLIVEDEN
R5 - 8.45pm. QIMR BERGHOFER OPEN Handicap - 1400m.
No3 SPUR LE JOUER (NEXT BEST BET) Has a fair record at other tracks but his record this track is eight wins and 10 minor placings. Also very good this track and distance and was third here behind two very good horses last time.
No2 PUNTA NORTE
No5 FLAMING ACES
VALUE RUNNER: No5 FLAMING ACES
R6 - 9.15pm. GR FLEET SERVICES Class 1 Handicap 1 - 1000m.
No1 ALL PICKLED (BEST ROUGHIE) Form before a spell was solid enough but we did like his two recent trials. Should be good odds here and looks ideally placed first-up.
No9 PRINCESS SNOWY
No6 I REMEMBER YOU
VALUE RUNNER: No1 ALL PICKLED
R7 – 9.45pm. ST JOHN'S COLLEGE NAMBOUR Class 4 Handicap - 1600m.
No1 LOCUS (BEST BET) Racing very consistently with a win and two minor placings past three starts. Should be able to race on the pace and be hard to beat.
No4 HIDDEN GOLD
No5 LAVINGTON STAR
No3 LIKE A RULER
VALUE RUNNER: No4 HIDDEN GOLD
