Eagle Farm horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:30) Mekka Races C6 (1835m)
#5 – Champagne Aunty @ $1.55 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Champagne Aunty is shooting for three consecutive wins after scoring at Eagle Farm in back-to-back starts.
The five-year-old mare is a five-time winner from 14 starts and she has yet to finish worse than third from four attempts at Eagle Farm.
$1.55 is short, but she is the one to beat.
Race 2. (12:05) Racecourse Village BM72 (2206m)
#8 – Fu Ni @ $9 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kris Lees lines up the five-year-old mare that is getting close to scoring a breakthrough win after running second at Tamworth.
The daughter of Adelaide owns two wins from 13 starts and she scored at her only start at Eagle Farm, which bodes well.
The inside draw and dropping to 51kg helps.
Race 3. (12:42) Mount Franklin C3 Plate (1200m)
#4 – Lasting Kiss @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lasting Kiss is making a lasting impression with punters after winning at Grafton and Doomben, and she’s worth following again.
The daughter of Real Impact scored narrowly by a nose last start and having her first start at Eagle Farm shouldn’t pose too many problems.
$4.40 is a value price from bookmakers.
Race 4. (13:18) BRC Membership 1MW (1400m)
#5 – Svindal @ $6.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Svindal is already a two-time winner this preparation and he’s good enough to score three on the bounce.
The Prizeman-trained gelding is a five-time winner overall, and although his best form has come in easier grades, he’s worth backing here.
Punters get each-way odds and they’re worth taking.
Race 5. (13:57) Sky Racing C3 Plate (1200m)
#9 – Whozyadeeler @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old son of Dundeel kick-started his career with consecutive wins before running third at Eagle Farm last time out.
Tony Gollan knows how to line up a talented type and we’re confident of a good run. His odds have drifted from an opening quote of $2.15, which is only a mild concern.
Barrier four is ideal and he should go well.
Race 6. (14:37) Country Music Weekend Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Release the Beans @ $2.15 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Release the Beans defeated a strong field last time out and he looks set to rise through the grades.
The three-year-old produced the goods when winning by 1.3 lengths at Doomben, and we like his chances of winning again.
59kg doesn’t make it easy, but there is early market confidence and we’re not surprised.
Race 7. (17:17) XXXX Dry BM78 (1600m)
#9 – Adelase @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Searching for three wins in a row is Adelase, who should be tough to beat with only 55.5kg on her back.
The Barry Baldwin-trained five-year-old has figured in the finish in 12 of her 18 starts, so the consistency is there and drawing the inside barrier is ideal.
$3.10 is well worth taking and those odds should firm.
Race 8. (17:57) Tab Venue Mode 0MW (1000m)
#11 – So Clever @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet
So Clever was a touch disappointing last time out, but he hasn’t finished worse than second from four starts.
The five-year-old has posted two wins from four starts, and he won at his only attempt at Eagle Farm, which bodes well.
Dropping to 51kg helps and his best form comes on good surfaces.
Race 9. (18:33) Spring Carnival on Sale Now BM90 (1000m)
#9 – Le Palmier @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Gollan-trained gelding loves running fresh up with four starts for two wins and two second placings.
He is a two-time winner at Eagle Farm and three-time winner at the distance, so the statistics are in his favour.
We’re not surprised by the odds available and 55kg on his back works. Take the each-way odds before they drop.
