Gold Coast Tips August 27
GCTC HALL OF FAME - MIGHT AND POWER RATINGS BAND 0 - 70 Handicap Tips
Gold Coast Value Bet - Race 6 No. 10 Fortified
There's no doubting he will be better suited over a touch further, but I am thinking that he is still holding some residual fitness from the Brisbane Winter Carnival and could well just prove too good for this lot.
Fortified finished a nice second at Sunshine Coast in April at this trip, before going on to win well at both Eagle Farm and Ipswich over much further.
In a race that is not exactly full of depth, this could be the horse that has the most scope to go on and improve from last prep.
MARTIN COLLINS GOLDMARKET Tips (Race 7)
Gold Coast Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 4 Desert Lord
This seven-year-old comes into the race fresh off the back a good run at the Sunshine Coast last month, but we have seen that his turn-of-foot is awesome when fresh.
Desert Lord faces Alligator Blood who everyone will be watching, but I was not impressed with his trial, so I am confident that he will beat the Gator home.
Back to 1200m is a huge tick, a trip he has won three from six over, so he will be afforded every opportunity to salute here.

Gold Coast Best Bet - Race 8 No. 3 Morethannumberone
He was too good at Grafton first-up and did well to stick on for second last start with a less than economical run last time out.
The five-year-old seems to is in a really good vein of form this time around and the Costa stable has been low-flying, so you can always take confidence with their horses, especially at home.
This is not an overly strong affair, so this gelding can be afforded win number three here arriving fit and from an in-form stable.
