Tattersall’s Members Cup betting preview – February 27, 2021

The Listed Tattersall’s Members Cup is the feature race for this weekend’s meeting at the Sunshine Coast. A field of 12 has been assembled for the $125,000 mile race, with Cody Morgan’s Ligulate the current favourite. Dissolution maps to lead this field ahead of Willo Titto and Wapiti.

Star Of Michelin (#7) has found his go. The big striding four-year-old gelding has won his last two starts at the Sunshine Coast mile and does his best racing on big tracks, so he will appreciate the conditions. Having not had much experience on wet tracks, it is unclear how he will handle the Heavy going, but he did break his maiden on a Soft track in his two-year-old season. Drawn well in barrier four under Sheriden Tomlinson, he can nearly box seat and prove too strong again.

Ligulate (#2) is shooting for a hat-trick of wins on Saturday and gets every chance in this. Drawn out in barrier 11 with Andrew Mallyon in the saddle, he is likely to get back in the run and then storm home. The five-year-old gelding has only had the one run at the Sunshine Coast where he was just nosed out by Tokoriki Lad in November over the 1400m, which was a touch short of his best. He does drop back in trip, but onto the Heavy track will make it feel a touch longer than the 1600m.

Sofie’s Gold Class (#5) was an eye-catcher in the Sunshine Coast Cup a month ago when third behind Emerald Kingdom and Splendoronthegrass. The seven-year-old mare has three wins at the track and is two from two on wet tracks, so she will thrive in these conditions. The daughter of Hard Spun goes great at the mile, and there are plenty of options for Michael Cahill from barrier nine. She is the each-way knockout hope.
