FORM ANALYSIS BY DARREN CLAYTON- @DASHMAN01

 

Speed maps are based on recent and anticipated racing patterns. For important changes of tactics which may affect the accuracy of this speed map follow @QRICstewards on Twitter. 

RACE ONE

MAYWYN TOUGH (3)
ran 2nd to his stablemate SPRIGFIELD DESIRE in the first 2YO of the season last week after looking to take them all the way. He did everything right and with the race experience and natural improvement can score victory here.

MAYWYN NO REGRETS (2) is on debut for Graham Dwyer and is a filly by Sportswriter out of the un-raced Western Regret that hails from a strong family. Her only trial was a tidy effort and she can feature.

SELECTIONS: MAYWYN TOUGH (3), MAYWYN NO REGRETS (2), LEFT A TERROR (5)
SUGGESTED BET:

Insufficient exposed form to determine.

 

RACE TWO

FOURSHARESMOREBEERS (5) will find this easier than what he has been meeting, running strong races in the open class trotting ranks. Only beaten a head 3 runs back he was attacking the line strongly 2 starts back when 1.5m from the winner. He looks too strong in this line-up

MAYBETOTHEMAX (3) made his Qld debut at stand start conditions from a 20m impost when sent forward in a rapid-fire move with 600m to run and found the front and powered away to an impressive win. His mobile start record is good and from this gate can look to find the pegs and go back-to-back.

SELECTIONS: FOURSHARESMOREBEERS (5), MAYBETOTHEMAX (3), LANSBURY (1), BLUE DON (6)
SUGGESTED BET: FOURSHARESMOREBEERS (5), to win

RACE THREE

COURAGEOUS LEO (1) shoots for the hat-trick after successive Redcliffe victories at his only 2 Qld starts. Sent straight to the front from 2 runs back he started in red figures in scoring a 2m victory and the latest win was a solid effort from gate 6. With the gate advantage he gets every chance.

SEVEN RIPPIN ACES (3) was beaten by the draw behind a smart type in the Tamworth Star Maker 2 starts back. Returning here to AP last start he again was luckless when landing gate 12 behind LISA LINCOLN. He sees the front for the 1st time in 4 starts and can be much sharper.

SELECTIONS: COURAGEOUS LEO (1), SEVEN RIPPIN ACES (3), GETOUTNWALK (6), ARK TEAMO (5)
SUGGESTED BET:  COURAGEOUS LEO (1) to win

RACE FOUR

ANOTHER BROADWAY (3)
has ordinary numbers next to his name but has been no closer than gate 5 in a long time. Sent back to the trials last start he earned his return with a trial when never bothered. From this gate he can look for the pegs and taking control can turn it all around.

BATTLE BORN (2) will take benefit from his latest outing which was his 1st run back from a freshen. Angled down to the pegs he ran to the line in good style to be 6m from the winner FRANKIE ROCKS. He can find good position from this alley and is in the mix.

SELECTIONS: ANOTHER BROADWAY (3), BATTLE BORN (2), LEXUS ON THE BEACH (1), REDS JET STAR (6)
SUGGESTED BET: ANOTHER BROADWAY (3) to win

RACE FIVE

CHERISH THE MOMENT (3) has now started 2 times since returning from a break and strikes the right type of field to breakthrough. From gate 7 when resuming she returned a strong effort from the 7-hole when under 4m from the winner. Too far back last start look for a sharp effort from the gate.

MAYWYNS BEST (2) settled in the running line on Sat night and was hitting the line in good style when beaten 5m. He is racing well and just needs the breaks to go his way to feature and with the suitable conditions that present here can challenge.

SELECTIONS: CHERISH THE MOMENT (3), MAYWYNS BEST (2), JANGO FETT (1), CHANTREY (8)
SUGGESTED BET: CHERISH THE MOMENT (3) to win

RACE SIX

MOHEGAN SUN (5)
sat in the running line last start with COMPLY OR DIE carving out strong fractions from the front and made it hard for anything to make ground. The start prior he was buried away on the pegs and flashing home late when 5m from OUR MELS DREAM. He gets his chance in this line-up.

BIO MARINUS (1) showed no early speed at all last start and with that in mind, looks likely to be buried away in the run here. 4 starts back he was sent forward from gate 4 to press his way to the front and once in control held them all off. He is in the mix.

SELECTIONS: MOHEGAN SUN (5), BIO MARINUS (1), COMPLY OR DIE (8), RAESAWINNER (7)
SUGGESTED BET:

RACE SEVEN

PSYCHEDELIC (7) has the tough gate to overcome but this looks a good race for him after meeting much stronger types in recent outings. A winner here 3 starts back, he was luckless next time out behind CLINTAL DO and last week was strong after working when 5m from the winner. He can take this.

INVINCIBLE LOXTON (9) returned a huge effort in victory 2 starts back when pressing ahead from gate 4 and running a strong closing 800m. He should benefit from his latest run on Fri which followed a 4 week break after working in the run and from the gate can challenge.

SELECTIONS: PSYCHEDELIC (7), INVINCIBLE LOXTON (9), TOMEARA (5), ELMAUR JOY (3)
SUGGESTED BET: PSYCHEDELIC (7) to win

RACE EIGHT

BANGKOK BRAVADO (9)
was a long way back in the run last start from gate 11 and after stalling 3-wide when trailing into the contest was hitting the line in good order. He was beaten by the leader controlling the speed 2 back and although the 2138m poses a query, he can get the job done.

THE HARLEM HAMMER (3) was a real eye-catcher last start when attacking the line strongly in the closing stages. That followed a 2nd to MARETTI in a Rising Stars final after a strong win in the heats. She is right in contention here.

SELECTIONS: BANGKOK BRAVADO (9), THE HARLEM HAMMER (3), JACKS AT THE BEACH (7), MISTA NATURAL (1)
SUGGESTED BET: BANGKOK BRAVADO (9) to win
