2013 Gold Coast Guineas Odds and Tips

With the 2013 Brisbane Winter Carnival just around the corner the talented horses are beginning to arrive in Queensland and on Saturday one of the key events is the Group 3 2013 Gold Coast Guineas (1200m).

Heading the market and a deserving favourite is classy Kelso Wood-trained colt Sizzling ($3) who shone as a two-year-old at the winter carnival.

But the son of Snitzel faces some tough competition in his first-up test including taking on the likes of Darley’s Academus ($4) and Magic Millions Guineas winner Saluter ($7.50).

Well performed Perth galloper Luke’s Luck ($9) has joined Kelly Schweida’s Brisbane team for the winter while Sydney’s Dances On Stars ($9) makes his second trip north after a consistent two-year-old campaign.

Not sure who to back in this big field of three-year-olds? Need some help deciding your selections? Then keep reading as the Races.com.au experts have been hard at work to bring our very best Gold Coast Guineas tips.
