MONACO PLAYBOY backs up from Eagle Farm last Saturday while two-year-old duo GALVARINO and DREAMACE also line-up at today’s Sunshine Coast meeting.

MONACO PLAYBOY returns to the track where he has recorded four of his six career wins and on his preferred soft going.

GALVARINO resumes in the QTIS 2yo Maiden Handicap (1000m) having last contested the Listed Phelan Ready Stakes in December.

Fellow two-year-old DREAMACE makes his career debut in the other QTIS 2yo Maiden (1000m). 

Trainer Chris Munce previews all three runners below:

Sunshine Coast: Sunshine Coast Turf Club Sunday 05, May 2019 | View race field

Race 1 – 12:25PM IGA SUNSHINE COAST QTIS Two-Years-Old Maiden Handicap (1000 METRES)
Colours No. / Horse Name / Barrier Jockey Weight Status
5. Galvarino (8)                      Larry Cassidy          57kg

TRAINER COMMENTS: “The 1000m looks a nice race for him to kick off in even though the 1000m is probably well short of his best. Hopefully the track dries out a bit and I want to see him hit the line strongly and I’m sure he’ll improve on whatever he does.”

Race 2 – 1:00PM IGA SUNSHINE COAST QTIS Two-Years-Old Maiden Handicap (1000 METRES) 
Colours No. / Horse Name / Barrier Jockey Weight
2. Dreamace (4) Matthew McGillivray     58kg

TRAINER COMMENTS: “I’ve really been happy with this guy this preparation, his trials and jump outs have been very good so he’s ready to go to the races. He’s still a bit new to it all and learning his trade but if he’s good enough, he’ll hit the line for us.”

Race 7 – 4:00PM IGA SUNSHINE COAST BM75 Handicap (1600 METRES)
Colours No. / Horse Name / Barrier Jockey Weight
2. Monaco Playboy (1) Ryan Wiggins      57kg

TRAINER COMMENTS: “He’s on the quick back-up from Eagle Farm but he’s done really well during the week. He is race fit and stays at the mile with a good draw and a senior rider that knows him well. The wet track is another positive and it looks a nice race for him.”
