RACE ZONE RACING SUPPLIES QTIS Two-Year-Old Maiden Plate Tips (Race 1)
Sunshine Coast Favourite - Race 1 No. 4 Rubiquitous
In an open maiden to start the program, Rubiquitous looks the best of the unraced horses from the trials and should be suited by the Sunshine Coast track.
After a very green trial at Doomben on December 1, the two-year-old gelding by Rubick returned to the trials three weeks later with much improved racing manners.
Crossing to take up the lead in his latest trial, the Chis Anderson trained gelding travelled beautifully throughout, holding on to win the trial by a length as the other horses were scrubbed up behind.
Gaining the services of Matthew McGillivray, he looks to be a progressive juvenile who can cross and lead here.
SUNSHINE COAST DAILY QTIS Three-Year-Old Maiden Plate Tips (Race 2)
Sunshine Coast Value Bet - Race 2 No. 2 Happisburgh
With two recent runs on tight tracks at Ipswich and Beaudesert, Happisburgh looks hard to beat third-up stepping out to the 1400m on a big track.
After being slowly away on debut, the Barry Lockwood trained gelding charged through the line from the rear of the field, crossing the line alongside Keeta and Enolaba Lass.
Stepping up to 1300m last start, the three-year-old son of Domesday didn't quite balance up on the tight circuit of Beaudesert.
Drawn to land in a fantastic spot from barrier two, Happisburgh will be boosted by the key booking of Brad Stewart and stepping out over the Sunshine Coast for the first time.
BUTLER MCDERMOTT LAWYERS Class 1 Handicap Tips (Race 4)
Sunshine Coast Next Best Bet - Race 4 No. 8 Magic Delta
A speed machine out of the Nat McCall yard, Magic Delta looks hard to beat once again stepping out over 1000m on her home track.
After a strong first preparation, the three-year-old old filly produced a head scratching first-up run at the Gold Coast, never looking likely in a run that was too bad to be true.
With the stable boasting a place strike rate of 46% on their home track, the daughter of Better Than Ready returned to the Sunshine Coast where she was nailed on the line by Aviemore who has since gone on to win impressively at Doomben last week.
Although it is hard to argue against Toorooloo being the best horse in the race, the race favourite may find the 1000m too sharp and there isn't many speedier horses in the race than Magic Delta.

Sunshine Coast Best Bet - Race 8 No. 3 Doomani
After receiving no luck on debut and coming off a strong run last start, Doomani looks well placed to breakthrough from a good draw third-up.
Stepping out on debut behind Microwave Jenny, Sean Cormack was forced to pull the three-year-old filly back to last from the wide draw and although initially making headway up the rail, was baulked for a run and lost all momentum.
Landing in a beautiful position behind the speed second-up, the daughter of Tavistock relished the step up in distance, charging through the line late to be beaten under half-a-length.
Tackling his easiest task to date, Cormack stays aboard Doomani where from barrier four, he maps to land in a beautiful position as the best bet of the day.
