GOLD COAST & MORPHETTVILLE TIPS & BEST BETS

The big races this weekend take place in Queensland and South Australia where we see a competitive Hollindale Stakes take place on the Gold Coast while the time honoured South Australian Derby takes place at Morphettville.

Weekend Racing Tips

With rain expected in Queensland overnight the Gold Coast track is expected to play in the heavy range whilst conditions couldn’t be better in Adelaide with Morphettville rated to be Good 4 by start time of the first. 

Gold Coast Race 5 - Ranch Hand - $2.70

Resumes here for Chris Waller in the Group 3 Ken Russell Memorial and with Kalashnikov, Cork Harbour and Frontman all scratched looks to have every chance here. 

Won first up last time on soft going at Warwick Farm in a slowly run race and with conditions likely to be the same here. The field doesn’t seem to have much depth and is capable of repeating that performance here.

Back Ranchhand to win.

Gold Coast Race 7 - Marboosha - $4.80

Has been going well this prep for the Snowden team and looks likely to be fighting out the finish again here despite getting a bad barrier draw. 

Last two times out he finished 2nd of 15 in the G3 PJ Bell Stakes over 1200m and 4th in the Listed Derby Munro Stakes. On both occasions he ran on well on slow tracks with soft going. 

Looks to be coming in here ready to win. 

Back Marboosha to win.

Morphettville Race 7 - Explosive Jack $3.10

Maher and Eustace look to have found a real stable star here with Explosive Jack coming into this having already won the ATC and Tasmanian Derbys. 

Really dug deep last month to win the ATC Derby and has real finishing speed and power to get the job done again here. The big straight should suit and John Allen aboard again another plus. 

Back Explosive Jack to win
