Gold Coast Gold – January 13

We head to the Gold Coast for their big day being the Magic Millions.

Shogun Sun is value
Shogun Sun is value Picture:Racing and Sports

Think there is fantastic value still in the feature race. Sunlight Horseform has looked brilliant in both runs from a spell.

Unlike the main opponents, she has had the recent experience on the track and carries the same form as Houtzen last season.


Sustained speed wins this race on a good track and she has shown that so far which is no surprise given her breeding. Both parents were fast horses.

The question about the barrier probably just adds to the price. It didn’t hurt Houtzen last year.

The 3yo Guineas race is a fascinating race with the short favourite Pierata drawing the inside which may not be the best.

For that reason, and given outsiders have a good history, taking a value runner with Shogun Sun Horseform.

He was excellent first up around the main chances and then from a poor gate got too far back.

Settling about midfield here, just hoping he can be close enough. Should any rain arrive, that would be a perfect scenario.

R7 GOLD COAST 13 January 2018
G.C. M.M. Guineas 3yo R.L. 3 , 1400m
Race Synopsis: Talented three-year-old Pierata is now the winner of four of his eight starts (with two placings) and he was impressive again in taking out this rich race. He was quickly away before settling nicely for Corey Brown in fifth place on the rails from his inside barrier (1) behind a smart tempo. But he was held up briefly for clear running on turning for home, got a split at the 200m, dashed to the front shortly afterwards and went on to win comfortably. Goodfella showed surprising early pace and settled in third place on the rails. He was crowded when looking for an opening on straightening and then battled on particularly well for a good second. Calculated settled in fourth place but caught deep from his difficult barrier (13). He moved up well on straightening and fought on really well for a good third. Whypeeo was very quickly away from his wide barrier (14) and showed his customary pace in soon crossing to the front. He then did well in holding on for (4 lengths) fourth after working in the early stages.
