Betting on this Saturday’s 2014 Goldmarket Handicap on the Gold Coast is now open with local galloper Morning Captain heading the markets.

One of two entries for Gold Coast trainer Kelly Doughty, Danbird five-year-old Morning Captain pays $3.40 as the top fancy for this year’s $100,000 Listed Carlton Draught Goldmarket (1300m).

Drawn on the rails in gate one with regular rider Jim Byrne staying on, the gelding is equal 59kg top weight with Facile Tigre.

That’s one kilo more than the 58kg they carried last start at Doomben on December 21 when three and a half lengths away fifth to Love Rocks in the Listed Lough Neagh Stakes (1350m).

Before that they were beaten just a long neck when runner-up to Lucky Hussler in the Group 3 George Moore Stakes (1200m).

It’s that form the bookies are banking on this weekend, Morning Captain tipped to improve on their last run having now stepped up to further than 1200m this prep.

There are then three other Goldmarket Handicap hopes under $10 in the latest markets with:

  • #8 King Cobra ($4.20) – One of two last start winners in the mix, Gai Waterhouse’s Sydneysider makes their interstate debut here with Chris Munce to ride them from gate two, narrowly won over 1400m at Kensington on December 14 carrying 57.5kg and will appreciate the drop back to the 54kg minimum here
  • #6 Signified ($6) – Another galloper with a gun drawn set to jump from barrier three with Ric McMahon aboard, Kelso Wood’s Brisbane six-year-old was a luckless 12th two back in the Keith Noud Handicap but their last start second over the 1200m at Doomben was better and have form over the distance
  • #5 Mishani Warrior ($7.50) – Early money coming in for this Show A Heart five-year-old despite their outside barrier 11 draw and last start ninth when first-up in the Listed Lough Neagh Stakes over 1350m at Doomben last month, can improve on that however and should be fitter for the run, winning form over 1300m at Eagle Farm before the break defeating Tokamak

Also in the mix at more generous odds are the likes of Barry Baldwin’s eight-year-old De Dozen Stars ($12), Morning Captain’s in-form stablemate Little Brown Horse ($14) after their third win from four starts and Sue Grills’ rising 12-year-old Ollie Vollie ($14) who was fourth in Sydney’s Razor Sharp Handicap behind Aeronautical last time out.
