Brisbane Best - Sunshine Coast - July 14

Brisbane’s feature raceday will be run at the Sunshine Coast on Saturday which offers up an intriguing nine race card.
Our two bets come late in the day with Pressway (Race 8 #11) the first in the FC Lawyers (70) Handicap over 7 f.
The Steven O’Dea-trained runner has been terrific this campaign, featuring in the placings all four runs which includes a win two starts back over 6 1⁄2 f at Toowoomba before running second to Shogun Sun last start over this C/D.
Fifth up now would expect Pressway to be at peak fitness and he seems to do his best racing at this course with two wins and five placings from eight attempts.
Drawn wide in barrier 11 would expect Paul Hammersley to push forward and put Pressway in the race and based on recent efforts he certainly looks the one to beat.
The current price of $3.60 looks a decent bet and won’t get many better opportunities than this to bring up a Saturday city win.
The final race of the day will see a fairly large field line up in the Rps Open 3yo Handicap over 7 f where Chapter And Verse (Race 9 presents as a very good each way chance.
The lightly raced three-year-old is yet to miss the placings from all five career starts and going up in grade last time out ran on very well from back in the field to finish runner up to The Bostonian.
Stepping up to the 7 f today for the first time and also fourth up from a spell, the long straight should really suit the likes of Chapter And Verse who ran on very strongly last start at Doomben.
Expect there to be enough speed up front and down on the limit weight he will be getting to the line very strongly.
Whilst I have no knock on the favourite Shogun Sun who was terrific when winning last start over this C/D the current price of $9 looks a good each way bet for Chapter And Verse.
With just the five career runs to his name he is open to further improvement and based on his eye catching run last start would not be surprised to see him go one better today.
Good luck!
Bet of the day: Race 8 #11 Pressway @ $3.60
Each way play: Race 9 #8 Chapter And Verse @ $9.00
