Nine races will be run and won at Gatton on Sunday afternoon. The track is a Good 4 and the rail is in the true position. Race 1 will face the starter 12:10pm.
Best Bet: Kobang
Tony & Madi Sears saddle up their maiden galloper, Kobang. The four-year-old son of Spirit Of Boom has placed in two of his six starts, including a narrow defeat at this track and trip last start. Drawn ideally in barrier one, he should land on the bunny under Kyle Wilson-Taylor and be hard to get past.
Kelly Schweida’s Miss Barty has won her last two starts in good fashion and there is no reason why she can’t go on with the job on Sunday. Unbeaten at this track and distance from two attempts, the three-year-old filly will make every post a winning one from barrier two under Alex Patis who can utilise her claim. She is up in grade to Benchmark 70, but should still prove too slick.
Garnett Taylor and Bobby El-Issa combine in the fifth with three-year-old filly, Bold And Lucy. The Sunshine Coast-trained filly has had two career starts, with both runs coming at Rockhampton. She won her maiden on debut and then finished third to Oswana and Soneymar Star. She hit the front a long way from home and just couldn’t go on with the job, so the six weeks between runs and up to 1400m after a trial should bring her right on.
