Glasshouse Handicap 2014 Betting Tips

One of three Black Type features on the Caloundra Cup Day card this Saturday, the 2014 Glasshouse Handicap is shaping up as a top showdown from some classy middle distance sprinters.

Running as the Sunshine Coast Race 6 at 3:05pm this year’s $175,000 Listed Reed Property Group Glasshouse Handicap (1400m) features a field of 16 hopefuls.

Four of those are under $10 in the latest Glasshouse Handicap odds to win including the Tony Gollan-trained favourite Alma’s Fury ($4).

They carry the 59.5kg top weight but come off a Listed Eye Liner Stakes win at Ipswich last start and could be hard to beat even with those kilos in a race where there looks to be little pace.

The other single figure fancies are then the rails-drawn Jetset Lad ($6.50), Gold Coat visitor Black Cash ($7) and Playitstraight ($7) who has been in ace form including their Eye Liner Stakes third from two weeks ago.

There are plenty of other livewire chances at more generous odds though opening the race right up to the punters including early market mover Startsmeup ($12), 2012 winner Belltone ($13) and the local Len Treloar-trained five-year-old Escoffier.

See below for the team’s Glasshouse Handicap tips so you can sort the pretenders from the genuine contenders before placing your bets online at!


#1 Alma’s Fury ($4)

Deserving favourite from Group 1 winning Gollan’s stables who is after back-to-back Queensland feature race wins. Have 59.5kg to overcome, but it’s only half a kilo extra than the six-year-old carried to victory in the Eye Liner Stakes at Ipswich last time out. That was an improved effort on a luckless (and close) seventh the run before the Group 2 QTC Cup and the step up a little in distance looks good again. In double digit draw (11) so will go across and take up near the front, so if they can slot in and hold on should prove too good.


#2 Belltone ($13)

Kelso Wood’s veteran eight-year-old has great form in this race and will be keen to finally take it out as they drop in class. First-up run at the Gold Coast was a ripper in the wet, so will appreciate the predicted rain this weekend. Next two runs they were well beaten and at the back of the field including their 16th in the Stradbroke, but this is an easier assignment so should improve quite a few lengths. Won the Eye Liner – Glasshouse Handicap double two years ago and then were third in this race last year behind stabelmate Someday carrying 59kg from an outside (barrier 12 of 14) draw. Get in this year with 58.5kg and are drawn wide again but could do a top three run at nice odds without too much drama.


#13 Sptifire Lady ($21)

Has been a trickle of money for Michael Moroney-trained interstate visitor and well worth a look in our eyes. The four-year-old Hussonet mare has run fourth in her two most recent runs including her Aussie debut in the Listed Gai Waterhouse Classic (1350m) on Ipswich Cup Day. She was beaten just over two lengths by Jazz Song there and will have improved form the run down under. Before that she was racing in New Zealand and had a Group 1 run over the mile there. Gets in on the 54kg minimum, drawn midfield in gate eight and has claims.
