Race 1 - 12:23pm

QTIS 2yo Handicap (1200m)

Way Beyond has race experience with a debut third over 1000m at Eagle Farm followed by a second over 1000m at the Sunshine Coast and gets his chance to breakthrough for a win here. Look for improvement from Mass Destruction after the colt finished in the runner’s up stall on debut. Lady Lancaster comes to town after a debut fourth at the Gold Coast and Thrasher will have taken some benefit for her first up fifth at the Sunshine Coast.

Race 5 - 2:48pm

Class 3 Handicap (1200m)

Astro Boy Toy was the winner of two of his three race starts before a spell and looks well placed here to add another win to his record. Phobetor had some handy form before a break and has won two barrier trials in preparation for his return but has to overcome a wide barrier.  She’s Furline is resuming with the blinkers on and has drawn the rails and Stylish Saga is looking to keep his winning record intact after scoring at his two race starts to date.

3 Units Astro Boy Toy

Race 6 - 3:28pm

1MW Handicap (1350m)

All Important scored a solid win over this course and distance last start and looks to get a good cart across from a wide gate with plenty of speed drawn inside of him and can figure in the finish again. Snitch is fitter for two runs back from a spell and is facing a large drop in class and apprentice Nick Keal’s 3kg claim will come in very handy. Park Chinois hasn’t been far off the mark of late and Ruling Dynasty can run well fresh.

2 Units All Important

Race 7 - 4:08pm

Bribie Handicap (1050m)

 Tycoon Ace beat Tarzan at the Sunshine Coast and is certain to get another nice run after drawing the rails. Whypeeo is resuming from a short break and has won first up in the past. Spurcraft loves the short sprint courses and races well fresh and Spirit’s Choice is suited dropping back to 1050m after a close up fourth over 1200m at Doomben last start.

3 Units Tycoon Ace

Race 8 - 4:48pm

Brisbane Handicap (1600m)

The Candy Man was back in the winner’s stall over 1600m at the Sunshine Coast and will be hard to beat again over the same distance in the Brisbane Handicap. Le Juge made up good ground from the back when fourth to The Candy Man and meets him 2kg better at the weights. Kubis has finished second at his last two starts at Eagle Farm and Doomben and Spectroscope is fitter for recent racing  

4 Units The Candy Man

Race 9 - 5:25pm

Fillies & Mares Handicap (1350m)

Skate To Paris is fitter for one run back from a spell and has a handy second up record of three wins and a second from five attempts and is at good each way odds. Jadentom has strong recent form with a win at Grafton followed by a third at Doomben and will get a nice run from an inside gate. Epic Girl will also strip fitter with one run under her belt and has a two from two second up record and Snow Valley is not the worst.
