FORM ANALYSIS BY DARREN CLAYTON

 

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

SPONDOOLEY (1)
was angled back for the cheap runs from the 2nd line last start when beaten 10m which followed a luckless effort when looking for gaps and finishing 5m from the winner. From the gate he will get the cosy trip and can land the knock-out blow with his closing sprint.

MONUMENTAL (3) added another minor to his tally last start when grabbing the bronze behind PUNTERS DELIGHT after ending up a long way back in the pack. He is not far away and from this gate might even have a sneaky look to go forward. Wont be far away.

SELECTIONS: SPONDOOLEY (1), MONUMENTAL (3), SHEZABONNYGEM (10), CORPORAL JUJON (2)
SUGGESTED BET: Exotics 1-2-3-10

RACE TWO

OSCARS GLORY (5) was shooting for the hat-trick here last week and his hopes were dashed when starting from the 6-hole. He was sent forward and worked hard but couldn’t see it out. Despite the wide gate again he can take control of this when sent forward and will do his best to fight then off.

SWAFFHAM WATER (1) was a passing lane winner here 3 starts back from this same gate when taking the shot when the gap arrived. That is her go-to pattern and brings success and from the gate again can release the right runner and be ready for the closing sprint.

SELECTIONS: OSCARS GLORY (5), SWAFFHAM WATER (1), ROCKNROLL AMBER (7), WHAT A FLIGHT (2)
SUGGESTED BET: OSCARS GLORY (5) to win

RACE THREE

HERES MY NUMBER (4)
only moves in 1 position from his last outing but that might be enough to see him roll forward to settle closer to the speed. Last start he settled in the running line and was hitting the line late. He is a handy type and can look t cash in here

IPANEMA BEACH (7) will be sweating on the 1 looking to hold up and if that scenario eventuates her chances will rise exponentially. Starting a short-priced fav last start off a long break she justified the quote with an easy win. Just needs the luck here.

SELECTIONS: HERES MY NUMBER (4), IPANEMA BEACH (7), THE FORMULA ONE (9), IM ISABELLA (1)
SUGGESTED BET:  HERES MY NUMBER (4) to win

RACE FOUR

ROYAL TAZ (2)
has slowly worked his way back to fitness after a break and has been battling some tough draws. He hit the line in good order last start to be within 3m of the winner ILLAWONG LIVELY. He gets the good gate here to take full advantage and can go forward to take control and go all the way.

MR MEDDLE (8) claimed the silver last start on the grass at Kilcoy when beaten 4.5m. That followed a tidy effort behind CALCAVADO and with a nice run through in the early stages can settle handy and be ready to issue a challenge.
 

SELECTIONS: ROYAL TAZ (2), MR MEDDLE (8), BONNIE JUJON (5)
SUGGESTED BET: ROYAL TAZ (2) to win

RACE FIVE

JUST CALL ME GOOSE (1) was a winner her 5 starts back in breaking his maiden when able to lead all the way from gate 2. In his 4 runs since that victory he has been no closer than gate 5 and not been too far away in each. He can look to hold them out and with the lack of any pressure looks hard to stop.


CHEYENNE WARRIOR (7) will get the good trail and be poised and ready to strike when the gaps present. 3 starts back he was a 4m 3rd to ZALTA from the pocket trail and last start was 8m from SKYLARHAIN at AP. He is right in the mix.

SELECTIONS: JUST CALL ME GOOSE (1), CHEYENNE WARRIOR (7), IM ROLLING STONED (8), DIABOLO STAR (3)
SUGGESTED BET: Exotics 1-3-7-8


GETOUTNWALK (7) has finished top 2 at her past 3 starts including a win via the passing lane at her 2nd-up run after a long break. Last start she found the front from gate 4 before releasing and was only 3m from COURAGEOUS LEO. With the right luck from the gate she can finish over the top again.

NEVERHAVEIEVER (1) found a handy one last start when finding the front from gate 2 and then releasing at the 1000m to AQUA MISS. That followed successive 2nd place runs from wide gates here and she can look to dictate this time around.

SELECTIONS:  GETOUTNWALK (7), NEVERHAVEIEVER (1), MAJOR GENERALJUJON (3), MAJORDOIT (5)
SUGGESTED BET: GETOUTNWALK (7) to win

RACE SEVEN

MIDLOIN BLUES (4) has been runner-up at his past 3 in succession as he moves closer to a maiden breaking win. Last start he speared out from gate 6 to find the front over the 1780m trip and was grabbed late by IPANEMA BEACH. He can get to the pegs again here and will be looking to fight them off.

WILLSINTOWN (7) will need a slice of luck from this gate as he searches for open space. Dropping down to the pegs last start he hit the line in good order when 5m from TORQUE FEELS GOOD. Placed his previous 2 behind ARK TEAMO and COURAGEOUS LEO he will need some luck.

SELECTIONS: MIDLOIN BLUES (4), WILLSINTOWN (7), WHATA STRIDE (8), TIMETOGETHAPPY (9)
SUGGESTED BET: MIDLOIN BLUES (4) to win

RACE EIGHT

SOUTHERN ALPS (7)
was allowed to walk in front last week and held on to take the win. It was a big class drop for him to secure his maiden Qld victory and despite facing a tricky gate here, can get into open space early and prove too strong.

OLE SUN (3) is a good beginner from the mobile that can look to fire out early here and take an early advantage. Freshened since his last appearance at AP when he couldn’t make late ground he will be better suited here.

SELECTIONS: SOUTHERN ALPS (7), OLE SUN (3), MY DAD ANGUS (2), ILLAWONG BLISS (1)
SUGGESTED BET: SOUTHERN ALPS (7) to win
