4:03pm Sunshine Coast Race 8
#9 Vitesse Francais $3.50 with TopSport

The Tony Pike runner Bentayga came up favourite here and while it might be the best horse in the race, it’s aimed at bigger races than a Sunshine Coast Poly Track BM70 I’m sure. Is short of his best distance here and has to be question mark on the synthetic surface for the first time as well. Doesn’t have a great fresh record and I can’t see it starting as favourite. Vitesse Francais is the obvious pick to beat it. Comes off of a 4.5L fourth over 1800m at Eagle Farm in a Saturday metro BM75 last start when went around as the $4.4 equal favourite. Prior to that was an impressive winner over a mile at Ipswich in an extremely high rating race. Has run on this track prior, running 3rd in a 3 horse race over this distance. Wasn’t a run to write home about but was probably lacking a bit of fitness and the rating out of it was solid enough. Is from the Schweida stable with KWT on board and both trainer and jockey perform well at this track. Should be rock hard fit with the drop back to the mile and maps to settle midfield and off the fence which should be a decent spot here.
