VALE JOHN WILCOCK Maiden Handicap Tips (Race 1)

Gold Coast Best Bet - Race 1 No. 9 Someboy's Girl

Somebody's Girl looks primed to break her maiden second-up for the Kelly Schweida yard after coming out of a hot form race last start.

Settling just outside the leader last-start over this track and trip, the three-year-old Spirit of Boom filly was very strong to the line finishing second on the heels of favourite Magic Delta.

Following that race, Magic Delta ran fantastic to be narrowly defeated on the Sunshine Coast stepping up in grade while Private Universe (3rd) bolted in by three-lengths at Ipswich on Wednesday.

Jumping from the inside barrier, Glenn Colless will hug the rail around the tight Gold Coast track and prove hard to hold out on Somebody's Girl as the best bet at the Gold Coast.


XXXX DRY BENCHMARK 65 Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Gold Coast Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 2 Youngblood

The perfectly named Youngblood is injecting just that as Tony Gollan's three-year-old gelding sparks some life into a race filled with what looks to be an even bunch of stayers.

After narrowly missing Adelase at this track two starts back, the Sacred Falls gelding dominated from the front for a dominant four-and-a-half length demolition over the same track and trip last start.

After settling in the lead, Ryan Maloney took Youngblood to the lead and kicked clear to run out the 2200m strongly.

Ryan Maloney sticks aboard again for the inform Tony Gollan from barrier two and looks to be a progressive stayer primed to go back-to-back here.
