Gold Coast Race 6: Carlton Draught Tattersall's Cup 2400m

19/06/2015: In the last fortnight I have had both Banca Mo and Epingle run seconds for me at good each way odds (I hope you followed me)when both have seemed the winner with ten metres to go and I don’t see any major reason why I shouldn’t “ask” them to repay me with a quinella effort! Just the same I have a sneaking suspicion Surpass could upset the duo if the track stays wet though he is third up over a testing 2400 metres. Faust is a concern over the distance but he beat subsequent Brisbane Cup winner Jetset Lad last start on a soft 5 and with the right run could overcome the issue. Escado is not my type of horse but he does seem to relish the heavy tracks and if able to be close early I suspect he is going to give quite a bit in the finish.

Gold Coast Race 6. RaceTime: AEST 15:17, 20/06/2015

Front Runners (9) Faust, (10) Zoomania.
On Pacers (2) Epingle, (6) Banca Mo.
Mid Fielders (1) Holly Holy, (3) Escado, (4) Surpass, (8) Monaco Doll.
Get Back (5) Bachelor Zeel, (7) Pop 'N' Scotch, (11) Major Major, (12) Shoreham.
PACE COMMENTS It's just going to be a leisurely jog once the first few settle and even though I have Banca Mo and Escado as mid fielders don’t be surprised if they kick up early as well. This race will be more about distance ability than the pace.
