  • Guide to Saturday's best chances

Read our complete guide to the best bets for January 6, racing at Gold Coast, Randwick, Toowoomba and Wyong.



GOLD COAST TIPS (Adam Cusworth)


Race 2 - 1:02PM FOLLOW @AQUISFARM ON TWITTER QTIS Two-Years-Old Handicap (1100 METRES)

She might be at short odds, but Sunlight should make it two wins on the trot early on in the day against the fellow two-year-olds. The Tony McEvoy filly blew away her rivals at the Gold Coast over 900m recently and the experience of racing on the circuit should hold her in good stead. She meets a number of her rivals from her five-length win on similar terms, while the only contender near her in the market, Terminology, is running at the track for the first time, coming off a 4th at Wyong in the Magic Millions (1100m) lead up. The daughter of Zoustar has drawn beautifully in barrier 3 and is clearly the one to beat. 
Race 5 - 2:52PM FOLLOW @AQUISFARM ON FACEBOOK QTIS Three-Years-Old Handicap (1200 METRES)

In Race 5 of the day I am pretty keen on an unbeaten galloper, Bella Occhi. The Ben Currie-trained three-year-old has had three career starts and her three wins have come at an aggregate of 12 lengths. Her latest effort saw her jump to the lead and cruise home at Ipswich on December 27 and while this is a jump in class, she appears to be one that is going places. She has the speed to overcome her wide gate and the slight step up in distance does not appear to be a concern. Take the $3.90 on offer. 
Race 8 - 4:50PM AQUIS FARM PRE-TRAINING AND AGISTMENT OPEN Handicap (1200 METRES)

Race 8 of the day features a number of handy gallopers and one worth considering at the odds is Mighty Like, who lines up at his first start since switching to the Kelly Schweida stable. The former Victoria struggled at his last start, finishing 10th in the Seymour Cup (1600m) but ran a series of handy runs before that during the course of the Melbourne Spring. The eight-year-old has had six fresh runs throughout his career for three wins and two runner-up performances. At his last campaign, he finished 1.5 lengths behind Ability, when tracking in the slower part of the Flemington straight. The son of Host has drawn well in barrier 5 and provided the trainer has him ready, he can produce a very sneaky run at nice odds.

RANDWICK TIPS (Ross Aylward)


Race 1 - 12:40PM ATC OWNERS BENEFIT CARD HANDICAP (1400 METRES)

Six runners and a very good six at that. But SCREAM PARK looks to be going places. He can roll along near pace and accelerate and is getting faster and stronger every start. Probably will drop into the one one then unleash in straight. Hughie is riding and what a welcome return for him if he can land winner first ride back.
Race 4 - 2:30PM TAB HIGHWAY HANDICAP (1300 METRES)

This could be a mini Country Champs final. The Frick is very smart and working the house down and so is this AWESOME PLUCK, Again we have Hugh Bowman doing the steering on a big green animal who has a ton of talent. He was good first up this grade when 3rd and must be fitter now.
Race 8 - 5:00PM TAB.COM.AU HANDICAP (1400 METRES)

Gee this looks a perfect race for COOLRING, especially now that he's had a few runs this time up, is finding form and gets a wonderfyul 2kg weight relief. that all makes him look the best placed horse on the program.

TOOWOOMBA TIPS (Jackson Oldham)


Race 1 - UBET Class 1 Handicap (1300m) 5:00pm 

We have just a six-race program for Saturday Twilight racing at Toowoomba. I’m confident we can kick the night off on a winning note with DELANEY’S DESIRE. The three-year-old Drumbeats Filly has had four career starts and has only been out of the money on one occasion. That was as a two-year-old being Bring It Home Pop who has since run second to Pierata who is the firm $3 favourite for the Magic Millions 3YO Guineas. That form reads well for a class 1 t Toowoomba. Delaney’s Desire showed promise first-up as a three-year-old, running a close-up second behind Last Armageddon here at Toowoomba. Last start she finished third at the Sunshine Coast on Boxing Day behind two smart ones in Saint Patrick’s Day and Mishani Bullet. I don’t think she really handled the soft track and getting back on a firmer surface here will suit. 1400m back to 1300m is the only slight query but she looks the one to beat. 
Race 6 - MOORE TRAILERS BenchMark 75 Handicap (1300m) 8:00pm 

Just a small field of five contesting the final race of the night. I’m expecting age to be a factor in this race. We have two four-year-olds, a seven-year-old, an eight-year-old and a nine-year-old. I think the the four-year-olds will be fighting out the finish. I’m with ATOUCHMORE ahead of Real Mystique. Atouchmore ran a terrific race first-up for 25 weeks here at Toowoomba a fortnight ago. He jumped out of the ground late and just missed behind Burning Mountain and Iron George. Second-up and the rise from 1200m to 1300m can only be positives. He has a great record here at Toowoomba, with two wins and three placings from six starts. He also has two wins and four placings from eight starts on Good tracks. Real Mystique is coming out of the same race as Atouchmore. She was very one-paced, finishing back in sixth. 1300m is probably still short of her best distance, which looks closer to a Mile. Another factor that pushes me in the Atouchmore camp is there doesn’t look to be much speed in this race, making it a sit sprint affair. Suiting the sharpness of Atouchmore. He looks a moral. 

WYONG TIPS (Ross Aylward)


Race 1 - 1:40PM RYAN'S METAL ROOFING MAIDEN HANDICAP (1600 METRES)

Chad Lever rides the Chris Waller runner AUERBACH in this and it looks a lethal combo. He jumped and led until the shadows of the post last start. This isnt any harder and must be fitter now. Big show.
Race 4 - 3:25PM SHARP DS CENTRAL COAST CLASS 2 HANDICAP (1600 METRES)

I was all over MO THE GREAT last start and he got the chocolates and I think despite the big weight, he looks the play again here. Is suoper fit now, has talent, can accelerate but the biggest thing: it's his home track. Big show.
Race 7 - 5:24PM SEA FM CLASS 1 HANDICAP (1100 METRES)

KETTERING for Aaron Bullock and trainer Kris Lees was a pretty good thing beat last start in this very company. Start before that he was a close 2nd to a subsequent city winner. Drawn well and everything suggests he can atone for his luckless effort last start.
