Gold Coast Tips for January 8


Ken Seymour Handicap Tips (Race 3)


Gold Coast Best Bet - Race 3 No. 3 Swiss Exile

Expecting the form around Coolangatta to stand up here after finishing third, beaten just under three lengths.

Thinking she maps right here from gate five, with Ryan Maloney able to dictate where she lands, hopefully a little closer than midfield and within striking distance.

A repeat performance of her McLachlan Stakes run sees Swiss Exile finish at least top two in this event with even luck.

THE TAB WAVE Tips (Race 7)


Gold Coast Value Bet - Race 7 No. 5 Tamilaide

This son of Adelaide is a wet track specialist, unbeaten on heavy ground and not missing a place in four starts on soft ground - so whatever shape this track comes up in he will be suited.

He is yet to record a win this prep in two starts, but ran well on soft ground first-up in a strong race over 1200m while his last start 1400m run on good ground was also very good.

Tamilaide jumps quickly up in grade and up in trip to the 1800m, but he is a type that will flop out the back and not spend a penny of energy, saving it all for one final burst.

Gold Coast Next Best Bet - Race 9 No. 7 Mass Destruction

On a wet deck, I am more than happy to side with this gelding with Ryan Maloney on, boasting a record of five starts for a win and three placings on soft ground.

Mass Destruction was a strong winner at Doomben last start with James McDonald aboard, but Ryan Maloney is no negative, having had six starts for two wins and three placings aboard.

His Gold Coast form still has a question mark next to it, but if he gets around the circuit, then he certainly deserves favoritism.
