Gold Coast Guineas Day Tips For May 16 2020

The Group Three Gold Coast Guineas and Ken Russell Memorial Classic headline the big Queensland card this Saturday.

Good 4 is the current track reading (chance of showers over the next two days) whilst the rail is in the 1m position from the 1000m to the 400m and true for the remainder.

Gold Coast Guineas Day Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 7 He's Imposing

He's Imposing is technically up in grade, but in a rather thin race, this doesn't appear to be all that much harder for this gelding who bolted into score at the Sunshine Coast on April 29.

By Redwood and out of the outstanding broodmare Imposingly who's a dam to five individual stakes-winners which includes Bonneval (three time group one winner), the move north looks to have worked a treat as it so often does for these lower rated New South Wales gallopers.

This event does fall away in terms of quality with his main market threat in Pay With Cash going up 3.5kg and needing luck from a wide alley whilst this five-year-old drops a whopping 5kg off that last start romp.

That fresh win could be the catalyst for He's Imposing to now build off and he looks more than capable of notching up a few more victories in these weaker Queensland races.

WE ARE GOLD COAST Class 6 Plate Tips (Race 6)

Gold Coast Guineas Day Best Bet - Race 5 No. 7 Soxagon

I felt ideally that he was searching for a little further now off that six furlong fresh win, however there's still improvement to come in this talented four-year-old.

The form around Vega One, Tambo's Mate and Snitz from his last preparation is reading even better now with the latter winning his last two in Sydney, which included a Listed scalp last Saturday at Randwick.

Soxagon pulled out enough late to hold off Maslow on May 1, a runner he meets here 3kg better off under the set weights conditions and whilst Thine Is The Power is flying, the map here is awkward for that mare in a race with a suspect tempo.

The ability is there for Soxagon to potentially play a part in some stronger races later in the carnival and if that's the case, he needs to be putting a field like this away as the best bet on Gold Coast Guineas Day.


Gold Coast Guineas Day Value Bet - Race 9 No. 4 Resin

This is a competitive Listed affair for the fillies and mares to end the Gold Guineas Day Card and with that, this Godolphin representative has come up at nice each way odds.

A superbly bred five-year-old, she's admittedly a while between drinks since scoring via the Group Three Nivision back in 2018 although hasn't necessarily campaigned a whole lot since then.

The placement here by James Cummings with a run under belt from a freshen-up could be the key, as she generally needs one to to tune-up and had no favors when covering ground throughout in only a two length defeat at Rosehill on April 25.

We only need to go three starts back to see Resin finishing almost next to I Am Excited, a subsequent group one winner, which is great form for this at a value quote.
