Sunny coast Boxing Day 2019

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Just about my favourite day of the year! Ordinary meeting at the sunny coast nearly every year but it’s a great day to catch up with mates for a few sherbets, a bet, watch the cricket and do bugger all!

I don’t like the card as mentioned but here are a few I’ll be having something on. (If we don’t get the 3 inches of rain they said we might get)

Race 4 No.4- SINGLE STORY $8

Simply feel this is over the odds at $8/$2.80. He’s no star but comes off a win in the provincials down south and the run before that was pretty good without all the breaks also. Just seems to be improving this time in and really well placed heading north. He’s been good from the back without tempo’s to suit, he may not get great speed again but he’s an e/w bet for me at the price.


Race 6 No.1-KALIK $3.10 +++ 5-MISHANI ROMANCE $14

No big plays here. Feel KALIK is well suited back in grade. Jumps in weight which might not be ideal, Fradd takes the ride and he should be able to land in the first four settling. Up on a hot speed in a hot race last time out (5L quicker than benchmark to the 600m), this is easier. MISHANI ROMANCE may well be better at 1400m, just feel she gets a really good run behind the speed, can be nursed and let have last crack at these at a good price.


Race 7 No.8- FOXPACK (place $2.90)

That’s right, don’t think I’ve ever backed a horse place only! (Sure way to make her win?) Anyway, just feel she might get back to last and need luck/good ride which means I don’t want to invest a lot on the race. She will be suited by the hot tempo, Fradd has been on her in her two nice trials and I’d be surprised if she’s not the strongest late. Just depends on how much start she spots them.
