WINNO'S WINNERS: GOLD COAST, AUGUST 24, 2019

By Darren Winningham | Thursday, August 22, 2019

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 over the long distance to start the day - we seem to get a different result each week here!

Boom Boom Epic (3) likes to lead and I see that the Anderson-Heathcote Racing team have gone for the “boom” apprentice now and put Nick Keal aboard – his three-kilogram claim will come in handy here.

Miss Shanti (4) is one of the four Chris Waller runners who make up half the field. She has been placed in all of her past four starts – she deserves a win with these consistent efforts.

The top weight Happy Go Plucky (1) goes well here at his home track and Ryan Plumb has a great record on the gelding.

Selections: 3-4-1-5

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

Race 2

The locally trained Astro Boy Toy (2) looks well placed by the Toby & Trent Edmonds team. The colt looks like he will appreciate the 1400 metres as he ran home strongly last start at Doomben over 1350 metres.

The topweight is Scathing (1) from the Munce Racing stables. His run behind the impressive Alligator Blood was very good at Doomben. He steps up to 1400 metres for the first time and gets his look at the Gold Coast track for the first time.

A roughie here is the Gollan Racing trained Spiritual Rose (7) who comes off her maiden win last start over 1400 metres at the Sunshine Coast. That was a strong effort and the stable has been in winning form recently.

Selections: 2-1-7-3

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

Race 3

These 1800 metres races at the Gold Coast can turn up some odd results on occasions.

It is only a small field of eight to face the starter so they all should get their chance to win.

Aqua Vite (6) ran an enormous race last start at Doomben over the mile. He steps up to a distance that he thrives on and is on his home track for Scott Morrisey. Ryan Wiggins is in the saddle and this runner has been smashed in the betting firming from $9 to $4.00 – there seems to be some confidence here!

Morendi (1) has been racing consistently and if there is some speed in the race he will be finishing off the race solidly for trainer Darren Graham.

Vaucluse Bay (2) raced well last start and looks like he will fill a place.

Selections: 6-1-2-3
