IN-FORM DUO AIM TO GO BACK-TO-BACK AT SUNSHINE COAST

Jun 16, 2018

Last start winners ZEGOTA and DISTROYIA will be aiming for back-to-back victories when they line up at the Sunshine Coast tomorrow.

ZEGOTA comes off a dominant front-running win at Gatton a fortnight ago, while DISTROYIA is backing up after a fast-finishing victory at Beaudesert on June 5.

The consistent HELLAROO is also entered at the Sunshine Coast tomorrow, giving the stable three strong chances at the meeting.

Trainer Chris Munce previews our three runners below:

Race 5 - 2:50PM Parklands Tavern Class 5 Handicap (1200 METRES)
6. Hellaroo (5), Ron Stewart, 54kg

TRAINER COMMENTS: "It looks to be a very solid Class 5 1200m. It's a race that has got quite a bit of depth to it for a Sunday meeting and I was a bit surprised at how strong it was. However she's come on well since her first-up effort and if she can get the right sort of run just off the speed, I've got no doubt she'll be competitive and should figure in the finish."


Race 6 - 3:25PM Brightwater Hotel Class 1 Handicap (1000 METRES)
10. Zegota (4), Ron Stewart, 55kg

TRAINER COMMENTS: "A nice barrier draw here which I'm sure is going to be a bonus particularly up the testing Caloundra straight. She's done really really well since her first-up win, obviously she's up in grade and they don't often go from a Maiden to a Class 1 but she's a fit and happy filly and I expect her to be competitive once again."


Race 9 - 5:05PM Iron Jack Class 3 Handicap (1600 METRES)
8. Distroyia (12), Mark Du Plessis, 54.5kg

TRAINER COMMENTS: "It looks a nice race for him after a very strong win last start at Beaudesert against the speed and the bias of the track. He looks a million dollars going into this race, obviously this is a bit of a step-up in grade but he does like Caloundra and we look like getting a nice track too which I also think is a bonus."
