The favourites:
Ben Townley (MX1) – Townley very near won round five in what was his first appearance of the year, so now with more race time under his belt and no pressure in terms of the title, he’s our pick for Sunday.

Caleb Ward (MX2) – Ward has proven a master of the Coolum conditions and should be able to finish the season on a high note. A fifth overall win of the year is definitely within reach.

The threats:
Kade Mosig (MX1) – Mosig has confidence on his side and already has three round wins to his credit. Victory on Sunday wouldn’t be a surprise as he enters the best form of his career.

Jay Wilson (MX2) – Wilson has a 21-point advantage in the standings, so while we expect him to ride in championship mode to an extent, an overall victory to clinch in style would be the icing on the cake. Still, Clout isn’t about to roll over at this point.

The darkhorses:
Lawson Bopping (MX1) – After winning the overall at round five, Bopping hasn’t been able to replicate that result in the second half of the season, but knows what it takes to win at Coolum. If it goes his way again, another round win could be his.

Nathan Crawford (MX2) – It’s been an up and down season to date for Crawford, but he was super-quick at Coolum in May with the second moto victory. A win on Sunday would go a long way to making his season a success.
