Gold Coast // 7th May

Some nice featured races at Gold Coast today. Let’s have a look at the biggest few.

R4 Jaguar Xe Gold Coast Bracelet 1800m

Imposing Lass backed up a very impressive 4 length win with another victory in a higher grade race. Flying at the moment and will be hard to beat. Queen Of Wands has strung together some good races of late. 1.3 Lengths behind He’s Our Rokkii two starts back and then a close second last time out. Drawn wider than would’ve liked but a great each way chance. Falkenburg was only 2.2 lengths behind Imposing Lass last start, and turns around 1.5kg here. With a bit more luck than last time it can win. Circular was too strong last time out. Back up in grade but not out of this by any means. Lyricist has been working through well in the grades from its first three starts so far. Could cause a shock here.

Prediction: 6-9-1-8

One To Watch: Queen Of Wands

R6 Bruce Lynton Jaguar P.m’s Cup 1400m

Worthy Cause ran half a length behind Hopfgarden last start. Meets him 1.5kg  lighter here and is one of the best chances. Hopfgarden not without a chance here though, showing that it can beat the fave in it’s previous race. Coolring was impressive behind Malaguerra a few starts ago, however was mildly disappointing last start. If at its best it can win. Keep handy. Snippet’s Land ran well behind Havana Cooler last start, however does gain some weight. Not without it’s claims and wouldn’t surprise if it won. Akavoroun loves it first up and has had a nice break here. Is a good horse and could steal this.

Prediction: 2-1-6-4

One To Watch: Akavoroun

R7 Jaguar F-pace A.d. Hollindale 1800m

Hauraki hasn’t won in a while but we all know his quality. A great horse and should be hard to beat here. Old North has a 2.5kg advantage on him here and with a bit of luck jumping from his inside could snatch it. Volkstok’n’barrell was disappointing last start on a soft track. Was impressive before that in NZ and not without a chance here. Sir Moments is a nice horse who has been consistent this prep. Flew home last start and should run well. It’s Somewhat has been pretty good this prep. Outclassed last time in a huge race but was long odds. Looks a good each way bet.

Prediction: 14-2-5-1

One To Watch: It’s Somewhat

R8 Jaguar Xf Gold Coast Guineas 1200m

Takedown is a very good horse who hasn’t been able to win lately. Ran very well in the Arrowfield last start and looks ready to get the job done. Santa Ana Lane has been unlucky in his last few, finding himself wide and too far back. Is a good up and coming horse and has a claim here. Sold For Song has some serious potential and has been showing that of late. Not without a chance here and will be interesting to see how she goes against some big boys. Big Tree is an honest horse who has been super consistent of late. Loves this distance and will give it a real crack.

Prediction: 1-4-13-2

One To Watch: Sold For Song

 

Best Bet:

R6 – #2 Worthy Cause W @ $4.00
