Eagle Farm horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:37) Princeline Pharmacy Ascot Handicap (1300m)
#5 – Poupee – Bet Now
Poupee lived up to expectations last start when scoring by a length at Sunshine Coast. The two-year-old sat just off the speed and was too good for them in the straight.
It came after two solid runs against good opposition and she shouldn’t find this race any harder. It all bodes well for another good effort.
Race 2. (14:12) Trump Flooring C4 Plate (2212m)
#6 – Etheridge – Bet Now
It was a return to form for Etheridge last start and she’s capable of notching another success this Saturday. The John Thompson-trained four-year-old won pulling away at Warwick Farm and heading to Queensland won’t dent her chances.
She’s a three-time winner from 15 starts and we expect to see that record improve with some confidence installed.
Race 3. (14:47) Princeline James Street Handicap (1815m)
#1 – Badoosh – Bet Now
Badoosh scored a good win fresh up and anything close to that form could be good enough to see him winning.
The Matthew Dunn-trained gelding was a touch disappointing when fifth at Eagle Farm but we’re prepared to forgive that run and go on prior form.
Seeing Robbie Fradd in the saddle is ideal.
Race 4. (15:22) Foundation 1MW (1600m)
#2 – Mawaany Machine – Bet Now
Kris Lees lines up the seven-year-old that is struggling to return to his best form, but did enough last start to warrant attention.
The son of Teofilo was only four lengths behind the winner at Eagle Farm last start and this isn’t the strongest field around.
He does have to carry a big weight but the former Victorian is good enough.
Race 5. (15:58) Trump Flooring BM70 (1000m)
#4 – Weboughtazou – Bet Now
Weboughtazoo is yet to win from three starts this campaign but it’s only a matter of time. He owns three wins and seven minor placings from 14 starts, so he’s a consistent type.
Trained by David Vandyke, the four-year-old led the field at Doomben last start and couldn’t quite keep up the strong gallop.
This race is there for the taking and he should prove tough to beat with the right run in transit.
Race 6. (16:38) Mullins Lawyers Handicap (1000m)
#7 – Boom Chicka Boom – Bet Now
Boom Chicka Boom ran second at Doomben last start and he’s capable of turning that form into winning form. The son of All Too Hard is a proven winner of six races from 19 attempts, which also includes seven placings.
He’s a nice type and getting the inside draw with only 54kg on his back should bring him into contention.
Punters could get value odds for this runner.
Race 7. (17:18) Tab BM75 (1400m)
#4 – Epic Rant – Bet Now
Epic Rant found form quickly last preparation and there’s no reason why he couldn’t start this campaign with a win.
The five-year-old son of Snitzel won by 1.3 lengths at Sunshine Coast on that occasion and he backed it up with a win at Ipswich.
There is good talent in this field, so punters should get juicy odds around him winning.
Race 8. (18:00) Tanqueray Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Profit – Bet Now
Profit didn’t cash in last start but he’s better than that and we’re prepared to give him another chance. The three-year-old had previously won three of his five starts, which also included two second placings.
It’s a tough record to overlook and considering his seventh placing last start came behind Alligator Blood, we’re prepared to forgive it.
The market will be interesting but we’re not expecting huge odds.
Race 9. (18:40) Midori and Koyomi C6 Plate (1200m)
#2 – Macewen – Bet Now
Macewen is looking to bounce back from a last-start defeat and he has the ability to return as a winner.
The four-year-old had previously won his last three starts, including a 2.8-length on this track. Form like that should take him close and although drawing wide isn’t ideal, he just needs some luck.
Each-way odds should be available.
