GOLD COAST | QUEENSLAND RACING TIPS | 7 MAY 2022

Rail Position: True | Track Condition: Soft7

Expect rain, so I’m doing form for a Heavy track. As a result, expect horses to be winning down the middle of the track and wider as the day progresses.

BEST BACK OF THE DAY: Race 6 | #1 Gypsy Goddess (WIN) for 2 units

Class filly of the race that handles the conditions and maps suitable.

BEST LAY OF THE DAY: Race 9 | #6 Shooting For Gold (WIN) for 2 units

Map looks negative to how I anticipate track will play and I have queries on a bog track at 1200m.


Race 1 | Queensland Racing Tips | Shane Ciurleo’s Selections

8. Sibaaq
13. Seleque
6. Mix
18. Snitzify

Difficult to line up Sibaaq having his first start in Australia. Gets James McDonald to ride and has trialled well enough. Not a deep field, so if it fails then any of 6, 7, 13 or 8 could be the beneficiaries.


Race 2 | Queensland Racing Tips | Shane Ciurleo’s Selections

2. Remlaps Gem
1. Usmanov
5. Lyrical Girl
3. Esta La Roca

Expect that Remlaps Gem and Usmanov fight it out as the market suggests. No fat at current prices.


Race 3 | Queensland Racing Tips | Shane Ciurleo’s Selections

4. Le Baol
2. Alakahan
5. Stardome
6. Tavion Prince

Betting Strategy

Going with the Sydney wet-track performers who will likely get the same conditions here. Residual fitness from the 3200m slogfest last start. It will be beneficial late in the race.

BACK (WIN) – Le Baol for 0.5 units

BACK (WIN) – Alakhan for 0.5 units


Race 4 | Queensland Racing Tips | Shane Ciurleo’s Selections

3. Nettuno
4. Robusto
6. Slipper Island

Nettuno has been visually impressive, but those performances have been against average opposition. There’s no data strong enough to bet at the short quote.

Race 5 | Queensland Racing Tips | Shane Ciurleo’s Selections

1. Yamazaki
4. Café Royal
3. Dzsenifer
6. April Rain

No clear opinion here. Very even bunch and with uncertainty on track surface it’s hard to find an edge.


Race 6 | Queensland Racing Tips | Shane Ciurleo’s Selections

1. Gypsy Goddess
4. Gin Martini
5. Canadian Dancer
7. Secret Tales

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) – Gypsy Goddess for 2 units

Class filly of the race that handles the conditions and maps suitable.


Race 7 | Queensland Racing Tips | Shane Ciurleo’s Selections

3. Sword Of State
11. Four Moves Ahead
2. Prince Of Boom
12. Rhapsody Rose

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) – Four Moves Ahead for 0.5 units

Going with the Sydney form here. Seventy-one days between runs but two barrier trials will have her fit enough. Barrier will help in getting to the middle of track in the straight.


Race 8 | Queensland Racing Tips | Shane Ciurleo’s Selections

1. Zaaki
12. Polly Grey
3. Ayrton
9. Huetor

Betting Strategy

BACK (PLACE) – Polly Grey for 1 unit 

An absolute swimmer and kept up to the mark with a recent trial. Expect her to be rock hard fit and in the minor money.


Race 9 | Queensland Racing Tips | Shane Ciurleo’s Selections

9. Salateen
16. Orbisyn
1. Soxagon

Betting Strategy

BACK (WIN) – Salateen for 0.5 units

Big heavy track figures in winning at Listed level on a Heavy10. Map looks suitable.

BACK (WIN) – Soxagon for 0.5 units

Last two starts on wet tracks behind some sharp horses is excellent for this.

LAY (WIN) – Shooting For Gold for 2 units

Map looks negative to how I anticipate track will play and I have queries on a bog track at 1200m.
