The Sunshine Coast weather forecast has cleared slightly which should allow the track to stay in the Good 4 range.


Sunshine Coast Race 6 | Caloundra Cup | 2400m | 3:17pm

Looks a two horse race between last start Ipswich Cup winner Self Sense and the up and coming Supply And Demand from the Gai Waterhouse yard.

Punting Form describe it as a ‘not a vintage field’ and I agree. It’s impossible to back anything that finished behind Self Sense at Ipswich despite Benzini looking better suited on a big track.

Supply And Demand toughed it out last start to win on the Heavy and I expect a ton of improvement from him fitness wise stepping out to 2400m, but I’m not 100% convinced he’s ready for this grade just yet.

Neverland maps poorly and will be giving her competitors a big head start. She has the class to win and there was enough merit in her lead up to suggest she can improve here. Jye McNeil is a surprise booking and he’ll need to be on his A-Game to win this.

Insider Suggests

 LAY (WIN) Supply And Demand


Sunshine Coast Race 7 | Glasshouse Quality | 1400m | 3:57pm

I line up with Punting Form here in part with Too Good To Refuse was brilliant running on last weekend in the WJ Healy Stakes. He ran strong 1000m and last 600m splits looking across the card for that day and despite never winning at the Sunshine Coast in his career to date he looks primed on the seven day back up.

Punting Form also recommend William Wallace who rates strongly on Vince Accardi’s RSPs with strong mid-race and closing sectionals. Flamboyer is expected to lead and Monsieur Gustave has a mid-draw and looks hardest to run down.

 BACK (WIN) Too Good To Refuse


Sunshine Coast Race 8 | Sunshine Coast Guineas | 1600m | 4:32pm

I’m not usually influenced by barrier draws but on occasions they help rule out chances. My True Love might have to work hard for the first 400m to lead or sit outside the leader. If that’s the case I worry that 1350m at Doomben to 1600m at Sunshine Coast back against the boys isn’t the right set up for her given she’s had three weeks between runs.

While some fillies have placed in the race only Winx has won in the past four years. Looking at Punting Form’s Feature reports she faces a stiff task so I’m prepared to lay her and Vince’s RSPs enhance my confidence.

Either Acatour or Crack Me Up look set to SP as favourite. Punting Form highlight how unlucky Acatour was in the Ipswich Eye Liner, he looked slightly unsuited that day so expect a big performance from Team Snowden if this is Grand Final day. We saw them peak Tycoon Tara last week in the Tiara, amazing aren’t they!

Crack Me Up has really strong figures with his last start second to Religify reading really well for this and the last four winners of this race have started at 1600m or further in their lead up. He’s likely to sit midfield or forward of midfield and prove hard to run down. Damien Browne is the ‘King Of The Coast’ so expect him to time it to perfection.

Zamex has serious upside winning twice in Sydney on rain affected ground. There’s a slight negative back to dry and buried on the fence is a very likely scenario which makes me confident he’s little value at single figure odds.

 BACK (WIN) Acatour

 LAY (WIN) My True Love
