Neil Evans' Tips For Coffs Harbour (Monday)

By Neil Evans

Rail is in the True position with the track rated a Heavy 9.

Race 1 - 1:35pm TEAM BAILEYS CLASS 2 HANDICAP (800m)

Tricky and even opener with a few resuming, and two of them can fight it out. Local four-year-old 3. Moonhawk ($3.50 equal favourite on TAB) returns without publicly trialling, but comes to hand quickly and stable has found a suitable race.

Dangers: Rival home four-year-old 2. Venusian ($4.40) is not a known fresh performer, but draws well with a claim and has a liking for soft ground. Keep safe four-year-old 1. Qadira Star ($3.50 eq fav) who will find this a lot easier than a Highway, especially back to this short course where she can utilise her early speed.

How to play it: Moonhawk to win
Odds and Evens: Split

Race 2 - 2:15pm GRAHAM PAYNE MAIDEN HANDICAP (1400m)

Smallish field again for the maidens and keen on home four-year-old 1. All Too Holy ($3.90) breaking through at his fourth start. Hit the line from a long way back here last time and suitably placed up in trip from a softer draw.

Dangers: Local three-year-old 2. Full Press ($2.50 fav) has had a little freshen-up since working home here three weeks back over a little further. Draws to park right behind the speed, with blinkers going on. Honest 5. Flying Euros ($3.30) has been up for a long time and seems to always find one or two better, but gets in well at the weights.

How to play it: All Too Holy to win
Odds and Evens: Split


Local topweight 1. A Million Dreams ($2.80) can make it two from his last three coming back a shade in trip. Drove late to miss by a head here three weeks back and just starting to sneak back down in the weights.

Dangers: Gold Coast-based three-year-old 4. Apache Blue ($2.15 fav) made a flying start winning the first two on heavy tracks before outclassed in much tougher grade at Doomben. Back to where he belongs and importantly, carries that same metropolitan weight after the rider's claim.

How to play it: A Million Dreams to win
Odds and Evens: Split


Back we come to the scamper course and I doubt they'll see which way resuming filly 12. Superel ($2.60 fav) goes. Looked strong winning a provincial trial in heavy ground and has the tactical speed to put this lot to the sword.

Dangers: Big watch on local filly and first starter 11. Name's Jane ($2.90) who has been strong through the line in two trials, while including in exotics both the filly 10. Golden Fantasy ($4.20) second-up and home three-year-old 4. Newitt ($11) who debuts off a quiet trial.

How to play it: Superel to win
Odds and Evens: Split


A trio of runners can dominate here headed by improving four-year-old 1. Fire In The Hole ($4) who should have nearly won third-up at Ipswich when luckless in the straight. Back to his best distance and even fitter can break through.

Dangers: Local filly 11. Time To Target ($2.30 fav) has only missed a place once across five runs in her first prep. Drops in weight from a cosy inside draw and her trainer has tinkered with the gear. If local three-year-old 6. Hypertension ($3.90) can get over and find a spot from the wide draw, he'll be in the finish. Went down narrowly here third-up and this looks a shade easier.

How to play it: Fire In The Hole to win and quinella 1 and 11
Odds and Evens: Odds


Handy depth here for this grade although not much speed about. Progressive four-year-old mare 2. Jaja Chaboogie ($1.95 fav) is ready to win again fourth-up in the thinnest race she's tackled all prep. Didn't finish off under a big weight two runs back at Gosford before working home to miss narrowly behind a smart one at Scone.

Dangers: Improving local mare 4. Yarrinup Flyer ($8.50) is over the odds third-up after defying a betting drift to win a deeper race at Port. Up in weight but draws even better and should find a nice trail just off the speed. Tough local six-year-old 7. Ballybrack ($6.50) has had a very long prep but still keeps turning up. Won a thinner BM 58 four runs back and has never been far away since. Watch the market too on three-year-old 9. Borlotti ($8.50) who hasn't for a while, but if he runs anywhere near the latest effort in a stronger race behind Camp Rifle, must be included.

How to play it: Jaja Chaboogie to win
Odds and Evens: Split


We finish over the sprint trip and this sets up nicely for four-year-old provincial mare 2. Cool Missile ($2.70 fav) dropping back in distance and from a tougher metro BM 72. Previously had scored consecutive on-speed wins in weaker grades at Port and can box seat from an ideal draw.

Dangers: Big watch on local six-year-old 1. So Shy ($4.20) who resumes off a long break and two progressive trials.

How to play it: Cool Missile to win
Odds and Evens: Split
