Sunshine Coast Tips December 4

PARKLANDS TAVERN Maiden Plate Tips (Race 1)

Sunshine Coast Value Bet - Race 1 No. 13 Marleedoone

If you are against the favourite in the opening race on the night then there is plenty of value to be found, including debutant Marleedoone.

A three-year-old filly out of the Steven O'Dea and Mathew Hoysted yard, the grey daughter of Falvelon trialled well at Eagle Farm and looks a strong chance first-up under the guidance of Stephanie Thornton.

Not to be put off by the wide draw, the three-year-old has shown a get back style at the trials and will be suited with Stephanie Thornton staying aboard over the expansive Sunshine Coast track.

Likely to be pulled back to last and unleash down the outside of the field, Marleedoone has shown she has something under the bonnet in her trials and looks a great each-way play on debut.

DESIGN BY DANNI QTIS Three-Year-Old BENCHMARK 60 Handicap Tips (Race 2)

Sunshine Coast Best Bet - Race 2 No. 4 Dejanova

We were keen on the Natalie McCall trained filly a few weeks ago over 1400m, however, after not running the trip out that day she looks primed to return to the winners circle third-up.

After going down in a photo first-up, the three-year-old filly settled in the box seat last start but received no luck down the straight, with the leader constantly laying in as Stephanie Thornton tried to take a gap along the rail.

Running her 600m-400m-200m splits in 11.85 and 11.14 seconds, there is a strong case to state that dropping back to 1200m will suit the daughter of Better Than Ready after only managing to run her final furlong in 11.96 seconds.

Drawn to land in the first half of the field from barrier five, Tiffani Brooker has been developing a terrific combination with McCall and looks hard to beat here third-up aboard Dejanova.

GLOVERS CONCRETING Maiden Handicap Tips (Race 3)

Sunshine Coast Next Best Bet - Race 3 No. 4 Two Smokin Barrels

Coming off a luckless run around the tight Toowoomba circuit first-up, Two Smokin Barrels looks perfectly placed to breakthrough second-up stepping out over the mile.

A rangey gelding by Declaration Of War, the Ben Ahrens trained four-year-old recieved no luck at Toowoomba last start and will love the wide open expanses of the Sunshine Coast track.

Finishing fifth, beaten just over two-lengths by Wapiti in the Group 3 Winx Guineas (Sunshine Coast Guineas) during the winter carnival, Two Smokin Barrels gains the services of arguably Queensland's strongest rider, Ryan Wiggins.

Drawn to land midfield from barrier eight, Two Smokin Barrels looks well placed stepping up to the mile as one of the best bets on the night.


Sunshine Coast Favourite - Race 4 No. 1 Fort Wayne

A hulking son of Uncle Mo, Fort Wayne is a rangey gelding who performs at his best across the wide expanses of the Sunshine Coast circuit and finds another winnable race here back to the mile.

After failing badly stepping out over 2060m at Doomben on Melbourne Cup day, the four-year-old gelding trained on track by Stuart Kendrick indicated he performs best at home last start, lugging 61.5kg in a narrow defeat behind Silesian.

Settling at the rear of the field that night, he overcame the weight to charge home and make up significant ground not many other horses did on the night, and with a weight relief of four-kilograms this week, can make amends on Friday.

Drawn to land in the second half of the field once again, Kyle Wilson-Taylor climbs aboard Fort Wayne who looks extremely hard to beat over his home track.
