Eagle Farm horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:38) BRC Salutes J Brindley BM80 (1600m)
#4 – Greek Hero @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Greek Hero looks ready to strike after two runs this season and his effort at Newcastle last start was good.
The six-year-old was only 1.9 lengths behind Grand Rumore and we think that’s going to be a good form guide this season.
Ben Thompson rides from barrier four and that’s ideal.
Race 2. (13:13) 168 Qtis Yearlings @ M Million (1400m)
#1 – Artero @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Artero isn’t the most consistent runner going around, but he looked good when winning at Wyong two back.
The three-year-old colt by Flying Artie won by 1.5 lengths before running last at Rosehill, but he didn’t handle the heavy surface.
Being back to a good surface should see his form turn around.
Race 3. (13:52) Eureka Stud Phelan Ready (1000m)
#1 – Palazzo Spirit @ $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Palazzo Spirit scored narrowly on debut at Eagle Farm and having experience on this track is ideal.
The two-year-old son of Spirit of Boom has been primed with a trial win at Doomben, so the talent is clearly there.
Barrier seven could make it tricky, but take the class runner.
Race 4. (14:32) Canadian Club Calaway Gal (1000m)
#1 – Exo Lady @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Exo Lady is looking to remain unbeaten after three starts following wins at Eagle Farm and Doomben.
The two-year-old filly won by a length on debut before paying $1.80 to score last start, so the form checks out.
She has shown good barrier speed in both wins and $4.80 is a value price worth taking.
Race 5. (15:12) Roku Gin The Gateway (1400m)
#8 – Palaisipan @ $8 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old mare owns five wins from seven starts, and although giving away class to the favourite, she’s paying a much better price.
The daughter of So You Think scored by just under a length last start and she didn’t have much luck after getting caught wide.
Take her on an each-way basis at $8 and $1.75.
Race 6. (15:52) James Squire Just Now (1300m)
#3 – Expat @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Winning form is with Expat, who owns six wins from 10 starts, including a win at Rosehill on a heavy surface last start.
The four-year-old daughter of Makfi relishes wet ground, but she also has winning form on a good track.
We’re happy to take the $4 available and those odds should firm, especially if Snapdancer races in Sydney.
Race 7. (16:32) Sky Racing Bribie Handicap (1000m)
#3 – Shooting for Gold @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Shooting for Gold finished two lengths behind Zoustyle fresh up and he is unbeaten from two second-up starts.
The four-year-old is a seven-time winner from 12 starts and he is unbeaten in three starts at Eagle Farm. His stats read well and money should come for him late.
His recent trial was needed after being late scratched at the barriers, but it’s only a minor setback.
Race 8. (17:13) BRC Membership Plus C6 Plate (1200m)
#7 – Garibaldi @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Tony Gollan lines up the five-year-old gelding who is better than what he showed at Sunshine Coast last start.
The son of I Am Invincible needed the run for his fitness levels, and with a win and a placing second-up, he should strike.
The talent is there and some of his best form has come at this track and distance.
Race 9. (17:52) Tab Summer Provincial Final (1300m)
#2 – Hidden Eyes @ $8.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hidden Eyes already owns two wins and two placings this season, so we like his chances of adding another.
The five-year-old son of Sepoy has yet to win at Eagle Farm from seven attempts, but he has notched four placings.
We like his chances of figuring in the finish at generous odds.
