Race-by-race tips and preview for Coffs Harbour on Monday

0

RACE 1 – 1.40PM: SCHWEPPES MAIDEN PLATE (800m)

6. Frivolosophy is a mare having her first start since leaving the Hawkes camp. Only had the two Melbourne starts and was fast enough to lead a metropolitan race on debut. Now with Neil Godbolt, hasn’t been seen for 30 weeks and the Tavistock breed generally love a wet track.

Dangers: 2. Bel Academy showed plenty of speed resuming on a soft track to only be run down in the closing bounds. Back to an 800m scamper looks to lead this field and should be tough to run down. 4. Lost Light’s best two runs have been his two first-up attempts in stronger races than this when in the Hawkes stable. Joins the Peter Ball stable and resumes without a trial – one to keep safe. 9. Charge Perminute is a first-starter who moved well in her only trial on a heavy track. Blinkers on for debut shows intent.
How to play it: Frivolosophy to win.
Odds & Evens: Evens.

RACE 2 -2.15PM: A J CIVIL PROJECTS CLASS 2 HANDICAP (800m)

1.Gangika scored her first win at Taree since joining the Jarvis stable and see no reason she can’t repeat here. Drawn inside so looks to get a comfortable run behind an expected strong speed. Was caught wide the start prior on a soft track and forgiving of that wet track performance and performed on heavy in the past.
Dangers: Ex-Victorian 3. Sugar Baby has the best formlines but hasn’t been since at the races since 2018. Joins the Brett Bellamy yard and trialled well enough to expect a forward showing. 2. Vernazza has good speed and won’t be easy to get past at this distance.
How to play it: Gangika win, quinella 1 with 2/3.
Odds & Evens: Odds.

RACE 3 – 2.50PM: BALLYNESS MAIDEN HANDICAP (1400m)

Kris Lees has two debutants in 2. Kumana and 3. Political and they command respect. Well bred, they both did enough in a recent trial to indicate they are ready for the 1400m at their first trip to the races. Slight leaning to the Snitzel colt Political.
Dangers: 4. Grand Anthem’s best run came third-up on this track, the same conditions as today.
How to play it: Small bet Political and Kumana.
Odds & Evens: Split.

RACE 4 – 3.27PM: KORORA CUP BENCHMARK 66 HANDICAP

Little doubt 2. Bedivere comes through the strongest lead-up runs having contested two Friday night Canterbury races in his most recent starts. He covered ground and was still beaten under two lengths at his latest and runner-up to Dylan’s Romance the start before on a soft track. Distance suits and looks the obvious here.
Dangers: 4. Delayed Response is having his first start beyond a mile but this mare is by So You Think, has raced well recently in a Randwick Highway race and found the line recently at Doomben. 1. Bullet Shot has to carry 60kg on a wet track but can’t be dismissed on recent efforts.
How to play it: Bedivere Win and quinella 2/4.
Odds & Evens: Evens.

RACE 5 – 4.07PM: COFFS COAST CRANES MAIDEN PLATE (1200m)

14. Vivid Fortress was well supported on debut, but not much went right when got back toward the tail of the field and was forced to make a wide run. Gets a much better barrier today and found the line strongly over the shorter trip.
Dangers: 7. Venusian lost all chance when reared coming out of the barriers at Grafton. His effort to work home into fourth was strong and has been performing well without much luck since joining the Bellamy stable. 5. Fergus En Marche is a colt on debut off a good Grafton trial.

How to play it: Vivid Fortress to win.
Odds & Evens: Split.

RACE 6 – 4.53PM: COFFS COMETS CLASS 2 HANDICAP (1200m)

13. Texas Target drops back from an acceptable effort at long odds in Highway Handicap and races well on his home track placing four from six attempts. Looks likely to go around at good odds here.
Dangers: 1. Leshrac had excuses for his last start effort at Doomben with a foot issue found post-race. Can bounce back. 3. Rioli gets some positive gear changes with the blinkers going on and concussion plates coming off.
How to play it: Texas Target each-way.
Odds & Evens: Odds.

RACE 7 – 5.32PM: HOEY MOEY BENCHMARK 59 HANDICAP (1400m)

Kris Lees filly 9. Meyer found the line resuming behind a smart one in Shout the Bar. That filly has franked the form with another good win at Kensington last Wednesday. Meyer was brought
to Coffs Harbour for her maiden victory and looks set to leave with a second victory today.
Dangers: 7. Antilia worked home well in a BM 66 on a soft track at Casino. 4. Salsa Dreaming will improve second-up after resuming on a heavy track.
How to play it: Meyer to win.
Odds & Evens: Split.
