Tamilaide (Gold Coast Race 5 No. 5)
This four-year-old Adelaide gelding trained by Les Kelly has three wins and four places from seven starts and won his only previous start at this track. He was a 1.4 length winner of the Grafton Guineas over 1600m at Grafton on 7 July, then fought hard but couldn’t run down the leader and finished 0.2 lengths 2nd over 1615m at Doomben on 24 July. Resumes from an 18 week spell and is the one they have to beat.
Miami Fleiss (Gold Coast Race 8 No. 7):
This four-year-old Spirit of Boom mare has four wins and a place from six starts. She drew clear at the 200m for a 1.5 length win over 1200m at Doomben on 28 August, then took over at the 150m for a 1.3 length win over 1300m at Gold Coast on 18 September. Resumes from a 10 week let-up and won a recent Doomben trial. Looks a great each-way chance.
Morethannumberone (Gold Coast Race 6 No. 10):
This five-year-old More Than Ready gelding trained by Michael Costa is the early favourite in this Class 6 Plate over 1400m. He ran on best out wide for a 1.3 length win over 1400m at Gold Coast on 18 September, then was slowly away but ran on out wide for 0.4 length 3rd over 1350m at Doomben on 13 November. This is his first race at Class 6 level and he offers no value.

Our Pakenham Horse Racing Tips for Monday's meeting. Best Bets Prince Of Mercia (Pakenham Race 6 No. 1) This does look the right race for Prince Of Mercia. It carried this identical weight in a stronger grade last run. Maps kindly and should be getting the right run in transit.

Our Swan Hill Horse Racing Tips for Sunday's meeting. Best Bets Joe's Giggle (Swan Hill Race 4 No. 3) Joe's Giggle ran really well for the new stable and wouldn't have to improve much to be taking this out. Barrier 2 and Harry Grace aboard are both positives and the gate can be used to advantage. The $4.60 is healthy odds and hopefully it leaves Joe giggling. $4.60 Each Way Gleaming Legend (Swan Hill Race 2 No. 2) Gleaming Legend has
Our Dubbo Horse Racing Tips for Sunday's meeting. Best Bets Rhythm Is A Dancer (Dubbo Race 5 No. 2) Rhythm Is A Dancer just needs a pinch of luck from the wide draw to be taking this out.
