Sunshine Coast Racing Tips For May 20 - Is Youngblood worth another look?

The Queensland Wednesday card will be run at the Sunshine Coast where the track is currently in the Heavy 8 range.

It will be testing conditions with more rain on the radar later on Tuesday and the rail is in the 3m position throughout.

XXXX DRY Maiden Handicap Tips (Race 2)

Sunshine Coast Best Bet - Race 2 No. 1 Youngblood

Up to 1800m now third-up for the Tony Gollan stable, I'm giving this gelding another chance despite going down as favourite in his last two attempts.

A son of Sacred Falls that has always showed some potential, the fresh closing effort over seven furlongs suggested he'd get over a trip and behind the leaders on May 6, lacked the turn of foot to reel in the first two.

Jim Byrne jumping on a Gollan runner is as good as a gear change in Queensland, with the veteran hoop striking at 24% this season for the leading yard.

With the second favourite Adelase perhaps being vulnerable over this longer journey, I'm expecting Byrne to have her and the others chasing a long way out on Youngblood as the best bet at the Sunshine Coast.

BLAKE MACHINERY GROUP PTY LTD QTIS Three-Years-Old Maiden Handicap Tips (Race 3)

Sunshine Coast Value Bet - Race 3 No. 8 Petralia

Without any luck, the Gold Coast debut by this filly was full of merit over the 1100m there on May 8.

After drawing nine of twelve on that occasion, she lacked the early toe over that trip to get in early or press forward, so was forced to cover extra distance throughout there and still continued to make ground late.

A daughter of Tavistock, she should appreciate the step straight up to 1400m on her breeding and on the bigger circuit with barrier five this time, she maps to get more favors this time around.

It's a competitive third race from the Sunshine Coast, however with natural improvement expected, Petralia arrives here as a genuine each way hope at a double figure price.

YALUMBA BENCHMARK 62 Handicap Tips (Race 8)

Sunshine Coast Next Best Bet - Race 8 No. 2 Yeahnah

This mare was off the boil earlier this year but first-up with another stable change, she couldn't have been any more impressive when scoring over this track and trip on May 1.

Strong local trainer Stuart Kendrick is now in charge of this five-year-old and keeping her on this circuit could be the key, as all four of her career wins have come at the Sunshine Coast.

Yeahnah only goes up one kilo off that last start victory and facing similar opposition off a two and a half length romp, is well placed once again.

She did draw out last time, but over the five furlongs on this big track, it's not necessarily a disadvantage and James Orman can keep her comfortable and in rhythm.
