Lightly raced three year old gelding trained by Phillip Stokes. He was very good first up at Sandown, lengthening nicely from back in the field in a race that wasn’t run to suit. He should take good improvement from that run and gets in under the minimum here with Alana Kelly’s claim.
Coolth comes through a high rating 1400m race at Caulfield first up. His run was excellent there getting back and hitting the line hard in the fastest closing splits of the race. He ran well second up last preparation and maps to get the right run here for Damian Thornton who is one of the better riders on the program. Note one of our black bookers Vitruvius needs 4 scratchings to get a start. If she does get that start have something on her as well!
Umgawa is currently rated as a $5 chance in race three on the program. He has plenty of weight to carry here and I thought he was very plain through the line last start. Been up for a while now. May need the paddock?

Best Bets Our Randwick-Kensington Horse Racing Tips for this Wednesday. Deep Finesse (Randwick-Kensington Race 8 No.7) This three-year-old colt trained by John Thompson has only had two starts but looks to have lots of ability. He debuted with 3rd over 1000m at Canberra on 30 March where he hung badly from the corner and ended up near the outside rail. Next start he hung out again finishing on the outside fence but won by over 4 lengths on heavy going over 1100m at Warwick Farm on 18
Best Bets Our Sunshine Coast Horse Racing Tips for the 18th of May. Ringmaster (Sunshine Coast Race 6 No. 4) Ringmaster was good on debut when not put into the race until late. Barrier 9 doesn't make things easy but it has plenty of class and will be hitting the line harder than anything. More difficult races await Ringmaster than this so the $2.50 appeals. $2.50 Each Way Red Wave (Sunshine Coast Race 5 No. 2) Red Wave has been racing exceptionally well and
Best Bet Our Mount Gambier Horse Racing Tips for Wednesday's meeting. You can find all of Josh Reed's articles by clicking here. Dothraki | (Mount Gambier Race 6 No. 3) Don't get this runner confused with the Dothraki we knew and loved with Team Snowden, this is a gelding who is merely nine runs into his career. He has had two forgetful runs this preparation and although they were both seconds, he probably should have broken his maiden status by now. First-up he missed the kick by
