Sunshine Coast Race 8, 1200m LR 3YO SWP $125,000


Currently rated a Heavy 9 with the Rail in the 4m position, out from the True position at the last meeting. Mostly cloudy Saturday with a chance of further showers which should see a track rated in the Heavy range most likely 8-9. The predicted winds are gentle to moderate which should not impact. There have been 14 meetings with this rail position in the last 1008 days. Based on the predicted conditions, the track could advantage horses racing on pace with the best spot a few off in the straight.

For Sundays race, the R2W Early Speed Map below predicts an Above Average tempo.

Early Speed Map

Mail Escort from a middle draw leads Sun Quan who will hold a spot from the inside draw. Hearts Lifted races on pace. The Bostorian from NZ can race on pace also if desired but may need to use some petrol early to do so. Winter Bride and So Invincible are not far away.

Race Overview

At the time of writing there are no Early fixed odds markets. The likely favourite is Savatiano who won by a big pace in Sydney last start. At this stage I cannot recommend any horse without a guide to the likely prices but will post an updated market on Twitter on Sunday morning.

Advantaged Horses


Neutral Horses

Savatiano – Led and controlled the race before winning by a big 4.37 lengths last start in what was her best speed figure to date. Is a deserved favourite for this race but gets a different setup and will not be able to get control like she did last start. Is most likely to be midfield here and as long as they are running on which should be the case will be hard to beat but may not be any value.

Sun Quan – Comes here from VIC where he has been racing competitively. Races right on the speed and is one of four chances away from the favourite that are hard to separate.

Winter Bride –  won in fast time in a new career peak first up. Races just off the pace here and is a genuine chance in this away from the favourite.

Disadvantaged Horses
