Sunshine Coast Race 2 is definitely worth getting involved in early during proceedings on Saturday, we have identified 2 runners here that are both good double figure odds in early betting. Royal Hale is 15.0 / 4.4 and 2nd elect Revel is the same price at 15.0 / 4.4. They are 2 of the 3 runners Tony Gollan has engaged in the race and he looks to have the race nailed.
Sunshine Coast R2 #11 Royal Hale 15.0 / 4.4 – very well bred 2yo colt from the leading yard of Tony Gollan by Snitzel out of the Testa Rossa mare Twilight Royale who herself won the G2 VRC Sires Produce as a 2yo over Shamus Award, looked high class on the make in preparation for debut here winning its most recent trial at Doomben over 900m defeating Pure Gusto 2nd with a big 4.2l margin back to 3rd, ran 3-4l quicker time than Blue Book who won the next trial over Revel and Blue Book goes around in this race as an equal favorite on the 4.50 line whilst we are getting double figure odds about Royal Hale, draws reasonably wide but likely to stalk from midfield or thereabouts, if it gets cover during the run it will prove hard to hold out with big closing pars in deep stretch over the long Sunshine Coast straight, goes around at the very good each way odds of 15.0 / 4.4, back each way along with Revel for a result across the race.
Sunshine Coast R2 #10 Revel 15.0 / 4.4 – another one on debut from the astute Tony Gollan yard and a bit of a lead taken with this one getting 1st time blinkers and the services of J Byrne, deceivingly well bred by Epaulette who is doing a very good job with his 1st crop of 2yos in a very strong 1st season sire list, ran 2nd in a trial behind Blue Book beaten 0.1l at Doomben, trial was same day straight after Royal Hale who ran 3-4l quicker, the fact that this one gets blinkers and J Byrne and is also from the Tony Gollan yard suggests this one has its fair share of ability and the trial form aground Blue Book suggests also it can measure up here, goes around at the very good odds of 15.0 / 4.4, back along with Royal Hale for a result across the race.
