International Racing: Friday 1 May 2020 – Sunshine Coast

International Racing: Thursday 30 April 2020 – Cairns

7 tricky races will get the best out of punters at Sunshine Coast on Friday and it looks a tough card from start to finish. THE GOLDEN HIND lands the tag of best bet on the card, as well as the Jackpot Banker. He ran on like a train in his last start and will enjoy the extra this time. PARIS CRYSTAL should be worth following for a bit of value in the 6th race, but see more about their chances and others here.

Race 1 – 09:15 – 1000m – 2-Year Old Maiden Plate
Selections: 12 – 15 – 13 – 4 – 5
A tricky race kicks of proceedings here and the narrow first selection goes to KHANJAR. The daughter of Sepoy gave a solid account of herself on debut back in January, under Robbie Fradd and she will be looking to follow that up with a win here. She trialled impressively earlier in April without being extended and with the scope for improvement, she should go very close this time. THE ACTUARY followed up that modest debut towards the end of last year with a smart trial recently. With the expected improvement to come, the daughter of Sebring must be included. ONE SHY RUBY and MASTER RED both have their debuts here, but on what they have shown in trials so far, they could go into contention first up.

Race 2 – 09:45 – 1000m – 3-Year Old BM65 Handicap
Selections:  4 – 8 – 9 – 1 – 2
Fillies look to dominate the 2nd race on the programme. CLEVER MISS clearly needed her comeback run in her penultimate start and she bounced back to form with a smart victory last time out. Sitting outside the leading line she shot clear over the final furlong to win impressively and with three wins under the belt from her ten outings so far, she has the credentials to overhaul this relatively inexperienced field. ISA ROCKET has her first run back after a rest, with her last competitive outing coming all the way back in September last year. She has followed that up with two goo trials and if not too in need of this run, she should challenge the top selection. SHEEZASINGA has found some good consistent form since returning to racing this year, with two solid performances since that comeback trial. She has already won from two attempts over this trip and with scope for improvement, she must be included.

Race 3 – 10:15 – 1000m – BM60 Handicap
Selections: 3 – 1 – 8 – 7 – 2
TRU BLU TANGO gave a solid account of himself when returning to racing last time out. He led early and gave a great site before being chased down in the final stages to finish 3rd. That was over this course and distance, taking his record over this trip to three wins and two places from six attempts. The son of Top Echelon will strip fitter here and with Bayliss retaining the ride, he will be one of the leading contenders. LEROYTHECONQUEROR returns to racing for his first start this year and the son of Love Conquers All will be looking to build on that impressive record over this trip. He had excuses in his last start over slightly further when the vet found him to be lame in his near fore, but if over those issues he should bounce back here. He has featured prominently in two previous first up attempts and as such, he cannot be discounted.

Race 4 – 10:45 – 1400m – BM55 Handicap
Selections: 1 – 3 – 5 – 9 – 7
THE GOLDEN HIND caught the eye last time out when making up many lengths from back in the field to finish 6th just 1,6-lengths off the winner. That was over the 1200m and on that effort he is going to relish this step up in trip, having won his only attempt over the 1400m. Boris Thornton retains the ride and they should be tough to beat. KING ALFONSO has been thereabouts in his last three starts at this course. His latest effort happened to be over this course and distance, in Class 1 company and a repeat of that run should bring him right into contention. FEARLESS QUEEN won her last start over the 1200m, when coming from off the pace to put her nose down at the right time. That was in slightly stronger company and with Dale Smith retaining the ride, she must be considered.

Race 5 – 11:15 – 1200m – Class 1 Handicap
Selections: 3 – 5 – 2 – 6 – 10
MUSICMAKER seems to have returned to racing having relished her time off towards the end of last year and she has put up two good performances since. Having won her last start with a fair amount of authority, she returns to the same trip and with scope for improvement the daughter of All Too Hard should be a major contender here. POETIC COICE hasn’t quite made the impression his connections would’ve hoped for in his last two starts, but the 3-year old now gets a 3kg claim off his back which will certainly bring him right into the equation. EFFORT should improve further to feature here, having put up a huge effort to fly home late for second after being so far back in the running. With the scope for improvement after just 4 runs under his belt, he must be considered.

Race 6 – 11:45 – 1800m – BM55 Handicap
Selections: 10 – 2 – 6 – 4 – 3
PARIS CRYSTAL has come from the clouds to finish respectably in her last two starts and one gets the impression that the step up in trip should suit her here. Drawn well, she has her peak run and lands the tag of the value bet on the card. COACH has found some good form in his last two starts and the 4-year old son of Denman was rather impressive in his last start, when running on strongly late. He gets the 3kg claiming Sheriden Tomlinson to do duty this time and if building on his current form, deserves plenty of respect. Both of FILTERS and GALVARINO have scope and must be included in a relatively wide-open race.

Race 7 – 12:15 – 1800m – Maiden Plate
Selections: 4 – 9 – 10 – 5 - 14
Back to maiden plate level to close off proceedings and it’s NEMINGAH who looks the likeliest of taking the lions share of the prize money here. The New Zealand bred son of Nom du Jeu sat behind the speed and narrowly failed in his last start over 1515m and he is certainly going to relish stepping back up to this trip. He has featured over the 1800m before and with this being his peak run back after a rest, he should leave the maidens this time. JERRY ZANDA ran on nicely in his latest effort over further, having settled behind the leaders early on. The firmer going definitely suited on that occasion and if finding similar conditions over this trip, he should be right there at the business end. VALIDAR is yet to find the places in his 6 outings so far, but he showed dramatic improvement when stepping up to the 1640m last time out and if seeing out this trip, he should be involved in the finish.
