Brisbane Best: Sunshine Coast – 6th May 2023

Leading jockey James McDonald looks set for a successful day at Sunshine Coast on Saturday with a strong book of rides.

McDonald will be very hard to beat aboard Zaaki in the day's feature the Hollindale Stakes but the quote there will be very short so we're looking through the rest of his book for better value.

One that looks ready to win is Tycoon Evie who is nicely placed in the Silk Stocking.

The Team Snowden mare heads north after two strong runs in NSW since a spell, missing by just a nose fresh in a G3 at Randwick before finishing only 1.8L away in the Hawkesbury Crown.

McDonald is on for the first time and the mare has won three of five third-up attempts so looks ready to strike.


McDonald combines with Chris Waller earlier in the program with the in-form Al Aabir.

The gelding kicked off this campaign with back-to-back Eagle Farm wins before tackling a higher-graded race than this and chasing well for second.

He will be at peak fitness now and looks to have more upside than most of these rivals.



BET OF THE DAY (1): Race 5 #1 Tycoon Evie @ $3.20

BET OF THE DAY (2): Race 2 #3 Al Aabir @ $3.20
