WINNO'S WINNERS: SUNSHINE COAST, SEPT 22, 2018

By Darren Winningham | Friday, September 21, 2018

Sunshine Coast racing. The track is rated as “GOOD” and the weather is warm for the coming days.

The rail is in the true position this weekend. Looks like an even program at the Sunshine Coast while the action is certainly hotting up in Sydney and Melbourne with some good quality races scheduled each weekend now down south.

NB: As this form assessment was made prior to race-day, please check final fields and track conditions for any changes on the day.

Race 1

A small field to start the day.

Not a fan of the race. Throw a dart at the board and see what you come up with.

Pegapus (7) trained at Murwillumbah by Matthew Dunn was scratched from the Lismore Cup on Thursday for this race – maybe that is a lead?

Rob Heathcote has Pinch Passion (2) and Monaco Snob (4) going around. They both have been racing well. Monaco Snob (4) won here last start over the distance with Michael “Muppy” Hellyer aboard – I am placing him on top!

Selections: 4-7-2-6.

**************************************************************************************************

Race 2

Chris Munce and Jeff Lloyd combine here with last start winner Smartypy (6). She is only a lightly raced mare and she won well at Ipswich. I think she shows some promise and should cut the mustard and be competitive in Saturday grade.

Intrinsic (9) is a Kris Lees runner making her debut in Queensland. His strike rate has been great in recent months – you must respect this runner.

Selections: 6-9-1-7.

**************************************************************************************************

Race 3

From Within (9) is trained by the Toby Edmonds team who are flying now! This week they claimed the Lismore Cup on Thursday with Ryan Maloney doing the honours in the saddle. This runner has Jeff Lloyd aboard and is looking for a hat trick of wins.

Progression (13) is another Kris Lees runner. Her last run at Randwick midweek was better than it appears in the form guide – she may be some value and a knock out chance.

As for the rest take your pick!

Selections: 9-13-7-3.

****************************************************************************************************

Race 4

Chris Munce has another good chance here with Racecourse Road (5) who was solid first up from a spell when he ran second here over 1000 metres. Mark Du Plessis is in the saddle this weekend and, from barrier 4, he should race handy.

The Tony Gollan runner Shamurt (2) is resuming from a spell with Jim Byrne aboard. She raced in some good races over the Winter Carnival. The trial the other day was nothing too flash – however, she does race well fresh.

Les Ross trains Defence Missile (1) - the naughty colt that threw apprentice Sheriden Tomlinson off at the track a few months ago. Sheriden is going well by all accounts and should be back riding soon. This colt has been racing well and posted a solid win a fortnight ago at Doomben. He has won previously at this course. He will be in the finish.

Spending My Time (4) won here first up and, to be honest, was impressive. He may just continue on his winning ways!

Selections: 5-2-4-1 rough chance 10.
