Several prominent Toowoomba trainers will float their horses north-east on Friday in search of success on the eight-race program at the Sunshine Coast.
Lindsay Hatch holds a strong hand, as do Tony & Maddysen Sears, and they feature prominently in the Sunshine Coast best bets below.
Royale Return kept all of his best work for late when resuming here at the Sunshine Coast earlier this month and he looks well placed to return to winning form on Friday.
The Charge Forward colt stamped himself as a runner to follow when he recorded a comfortable win on debut at Ipswich, but a race in town proved to be a bridge too far at that point of his career and he was sent to the paddock.
I’m expecting plenty of improvement into this race and he is drawn to receive a lovely run under Georgina Cartwright.
Rhyme Time has raced well around some above-average gallopers recently, and she gets her chance to return to winning form at the Sunshine Coast on Friday.
The Lindsay Hatch-trained mare recorded a bullish win in BM64 company at Toowoomba three starts back, and there has been a lot to like about her two subsequent runs on the Gold Coast, including one behind Getyourgreyon last time out.
She is at peak fitness for Friday’s assignment and needs only even luck in running to be in the finish again.
This is a rise in class for Spiritomo, but she has been a consistent performer since resuming this time and is worthy of her chance in a better race.
The Spirit Of Boom filly returned an eye-catching performance to score in Class 2 company at Gatton in April, and trainer Lindsay Hatch has spaced her runs since, resulting in a credible third placing over 860m last time.
These short, sharp sprints are her bread and butter, and we can have an each-way play at the price.
Former Godolphin galloper Jetski has found an ideal home with Tony & Maddysen Sears, and he looks beautifully placed to salute on the Sunshine Coast this evening.
The four-year-old son of Lonhro returned the stable plenty of pleasing performances and results last time in, and he picked up where he left off with a sharp run to finish second behind a fit The Move at Doomben.
With improvement and even luck, I can’t find a reason why he won’t be in the finish.
