ACCESS INSULATON SUNSHINE COAST QTIS Two-Year-Old Handicap Tips (Race 2)
Sunshine Coast Next Best Bet - Race 2 No. 2 You'll Be Mist
Following a breakthrough over this track and trip last month, You’ll Be Mist was brave finishing third at Doomben over 1200m and will be suited coming back to 1000m on his home deck.
After failing on debut from a wide barrier, the Darryl Hansen-trained filly was extremely brave leading all the way here two starts back on Saturday class.
Stepping up to the 1200m at Doomben a fortnight ago, it is fair to say the two-year-old didn’t run out the trip, running consistent 11 second sectionals before producing a 12.66 second last 200m.
Drawn well to find the lead, she will find the rail on her home track and prove very hard to run down.
BEACH TO BUSH CONCRETING QTIS Three-Year-Old Fillies Maiden Handicap Tips (Race 3)
Sunshine Coast Favourite - Race 3 No. 1 Country Showgirl
After mixing it with Kisukano last preparation, Country Showgirl finds the right race to breakthrough on Friday.
A get back, run on horse out of the Kevin Kemp stable, the three-year-old Spirit of Boom filly has run consistently well throughout her career with only one blemish last start at Doomben.
Subsequently sent for a spell following that run, she is one of the few Spirit of Boom progeny who seem to handle the wet, finishing in the placings behind Kisukano and Fleet Dove on bottomless tracks.
Drawn well in barrier four post scratchings, Country Showgirl gains the services of Michael Rodd first-up and will be hard to beat.
SCORPION SHEDS RATINGS BAND 0 - 58 Handicap Tips (Race 6)
Sunshine Coast Best Bet - Race 6 No. 8 St Just
Although she's drawn wide, this daughter of Showcasing will be better suited steeping back to the mile now fully fit.
After being heavily backed last start over 1800m, the David Vandyke-trained three-year-old was luckless, seeing little clear room as he bolted on the heels of runners in front of him.
Drawn wide may look a negative on paper, however, as the inside of the circuit becomes chewed up, St Just will be able to find the right part of the track via a long and swooping run.
Already a winner in wet conditions and gainingt the services of Kyle Wilson-Taylor, she'll will be very hard to beat as the best bet of the night.
