Sunshine Coast Cup 2024 Preview

Track: Soft Weather: Fine

Open race. Kinloch was a good last start winner and has claims in this field. Essonne maps for a kind run and looks the one to beat against this lot. Chatty Lady has strong form lines and maps well from the barrier. Hollywood North has hit its straps and looks a contender in this. Master Jamie should lead these up and give a bold sight.

Sunshine Coast Cup 2024 Runner by Runner

1. Master Jamie (14)

Have him on top in this. Has the pace to offset the draw and the form around Rothfire is good enough for this. Classy runner that Tilley knows really well.

2. Ef Troop (8)

Mixes form and yet to show much over this trip. Should give this a sight and Orman is an eye catching booking.

3. Kinloch (4)

Good win last start and maps well from barrier 4. Has some good form lines and looks well placed in this field.

4. Legal Esprit (15)

Classy runner that has quality. Yet to show much over this trip.

5. Chatty Lady (7)

Runner on the up who loves racing here and KWT has a great record aboard. Can give this race a shake.

6. Essonne (5)

Needs luck and gaps but has the turn of foot to run over this lot. Barrier 5 will ensure a good run in transit and is 1/1 on this track so has plenty of claims.

Can’t have.

Needs easier.

9. Constant Flight (13)

Prefer in something else.
