Brisbane Best: Gold Coast – 17th September 2022

Gold Coast hosts the metro meeting this week with the Pink Ribbon Cup the main race.

In that feature, it is very easy to like Me Me Lagarde despite drawing the outside in the field of 10.

This mare is a drop out, run on horse anyway but with this field size, it shouldn't be as stark an issue.

Happy to ignore the one run during The Championships earlier this year on one of those very heavy surfaces when she was well supported but plugged on a few lengths back.

Her prior form including the Magic Millions second was an enormous effort. Hopefully they focus on a few of these down in the weights who don't have her credentials.

Since his move into training, Jack Bruce has had plenty of luck and we think he can win a metro race here with Matowatakpe.

The former Sydney galloper enjoyed success there but has gone north and just missed first up at Eagle Farm three weeks ago.

He handles all surfaces, likes to take up a position so the gate is perfect and might just get a little advantage in track position too over some of the main rivals.

The 6yo deserves to win another metro race and this looks like the right one to be doing just that.
