Granny Red Shoes is the winner of two of her last three starts and will prove hard to beat again if she can repeat her latest two lengths win in the Listed Oxlade Stakes at the Sunshine Coast.

The Bostonian picked up some travelling expenses for Kiwi trainer Tony Pike with his win in the Listed Daybreak Lover at the Sunshine Coast and looks the one to beat again.

Race 6 - 2:38pm
Tradesman did it tough but was still able to win the Ipswich Cup last week and will get the run of the race from a good barrier with Blake Shinn in the saddle. The Darren Weir trained stayer is the one to beat. Anton En Avant is a three times winner over this track and distance and is coming off a last start second in the Group 2 Brisbane Cup over 2200m. Honey Toast will be better suited stepping back up to the 2200m and Coldstone will be chasing some more minor prizemoney

Hopfgarten and Ulmann will clash again after finishing one, two in the Listed Wayne Wilson over 1600m at Doomben last start.

Grand Rosso was beaten less than two lengths when sixth over 1400m in the Octagonal Handicap at Rosehill and will strip fitter for the step up to the 1615m. Sheiswhatsheis will skip straight to the front from an inside gate and will appreciate being back on top of the ground.

Race 8 - 3:58pm
Many chances in a wide betting Group 1 Tatt’s Tiara with the three year old filly Champagne Cuddles being installed the $5.50 favourite with Ladbrokes.com.au when the final field was released on Wednesday. Champagne Cuddles has been knocking on the door with Group 1 placings at her last two starts and gets her chance here against the fillies and mares. Prompt Response was runner up in last year’s Tatt’s Tiara and her recent form indicates that she will be amongst the prizemoney again. Super Cash has found some recent handy Group 1 form but her chances have been dashed with a wide barrier. Shillelagh, Daysee Doom and the Kiwi mares Miss Wilson and Volpe Veloce are all Group 1 winners.

Race 9 - 4:33pm
Spright is dropping back to a more suitable distance and trainer Garry Frazer has opted to put the blinkers on the mare to help her return to the winner’s stall. Calanda will strip fitter following a first up third in the Group 2 Moreton Cup at the Sunshine Coast but his chances have been dashed after drawing the outside barrier in the sixteen horse field. Snoopy will also be fitter for recent racing but will need more than his fair share of luck from a wide gate. Malvern Estate has a perfect first up record and has been fitted for his return with a recent Eagle Farm barrier trial win.
