Horse Racing Tips & Previews – Gold Coast | Sat 8th Jan

Form analyst, SCOTT MCDONELL previews Saturday’s Gold Coast meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 9 races. Good luck, punters!

Track Condition: Soft 6

Rail Position: True entire circuit.

STARMAN fought the race out strongly to win at Rosehill first-up then just found the 1400m a little beyond him last start. Back to the 1200m ideal.

MANHOOD jumped to the front and demolished them here on debut. He looks above average and can make it two in a row.

FROSTY MANGO made run with eventual winner first-up and just missed in a driving finish. Fitter and she will be right in the mix.

SHAJAEA has been bit costly for punters of late being beaten when favourite last couple. Drawn touch wide but yet to run a bad race this campaign and cannot dismiss.


SIR ROCKET finished too well and got the prize here two starts back then powered home but found one better last start. Looks well placed and can win again.

ONLY WANNA SING is a star up North and he deserves his chance back in metro class. Three wins from last five starts and cannot leave him out of multiples.

SHAJAEA has been bit costly for punters of late being beaten when favourite last couple. Drawn touch wide but yet to run a bad race this campaign and cannot dismiss.

GETYOURGREYON comes into this off a couple of solid placings. Will get back from his awkward gate but if leaders stop he will be hitting line hard.


STUPENDO started favourite at Flemington on debut and after racing up on the speed sprinted clear and was too strong. Drawn touch wide but he looks good enough to win again.

SWISS EXILE was placed behind Coolangatta in the B.J.Mclachlan last start. That form good enough to get away with this.

HELL I AM started favourite in the Wyong Millions but he missed the start and that made his task too hard. Better from the experience and if he jumps he can win.

ZASCEED was not pushed out when well held in Tuesday trial but he had won a trial back in Victoria and from ideal barrier on debut would not be surprised to see him run well.


EXO LADY has not been given any favours with her barrier draw but she showed her versatility when came from behind last start to win and that made it three from three. She can win again.

UNCORKED looks a real danger. Looks the likely leader and if she can steal a break from the corner is sure to take catching.

PERFECT MISSION showed an exciting turn-of-hoof to put the race beyond doubt in a couple of strides here last start. If she produces that burst of speed she will be in mix.

MOUETTE was impressive winning her maiden on debut then she just battled after leading in the Calaway Gal. Looking for her to bounce back.


SHE CAN SING was strong winning this track two starts back then she chased home into placing in nice race at Doomben. Drawn bit wide but happy to have something each way on her.

LADY OF LUXURY weaved a passage last 200m and finished too well for an impressive win at Randwick last start. She will need some luck but has the ability to be right in finish.

BOOMNOVA looks one of the leaders. Only run down final stages by the smart Mass Destruction last start and beat the others with ease. She will take catching.

FALL ON A STAR started odds on at Ipswich and after jumping to the front she was just too speedy for them. Drawn perfectly and if she gets own way will be in this for a long way.


HEAD LEGISLATOR was well supported first-up at Wyong and he finished the race off hard beaten less than a length. Strips fitter and the extra 100m looks ideal.

PALLADAS had little luck first-up from spell but stayed on and only just missed minor spot. Strips fitter and he is up to winning this.

SUPER GORGEOUS comes into this third-up from spell. He has not been beaten all that far in both runs this time in and he will be right in the mix again.

THE RITZ started this prep with a couple of dominant wins. He took on Listed class last start but just fell short. Back in right race here.


WHEELHOUSE was placed on heavy ground three starts back. He loomed to win at Randwick last start but just found one better late. He can mix his form but his best is big enough.

TAMILAIDE looks ready to win this prep. He has been close up in both his starts this time in and watch for him to be making late ground.

STARELLE just keeps running consistently down in Victoria. If she can bring that form up North she will take some holding out last 200m.

ALWAYS ON SHOW is screaming out for a win. She has not been beaten all that far in last three starts and cannot leave her out of exotics.


THE MOVE looked in need of the run when did not finish the race off well enough first-up at Sunshine Coast. Strips fitter and if he finds best will win.

2020 Stradbroke winner TYZONE resumes from spell. He has a solid first-up record (10:4-0-1) and although will get back watch for him to be hitting line hard.

RACECOURSE ROAD is another first-up. His first-up record (7:2-2-1) suggests he cannot be left out of multiples.

KING KLAUS has a super fresh record (4:3-1-0). He beat Le Palmier at Eagle Farm when first-up last time in work and if he found that form would be right in the mix.


Going to finish the meeting with a bit of each way value in ROMAN AUREUS. Been racing consistently this time in but just finding it hard to win. Drawn ideally and can see him giving this a shake.

MASS DESTRUCTION did a lot of early work at Doomben last start but still finished too well for tough win. Third-up from spell and he can win again.

DON’T STOP is racing in super form this time in. Good tough win at Doomben two starts back then followed with a placing last start. Barrier a concern but cannot leave out.

FISTICUFFS is a hard gelding to follow but if he can find his best form will be powering over these last 200m and may surprise.
