Eagle Farm horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:48) Tab Venue Mode Handicap (1200m)
#3 – Release the Beans – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Robert Heathcote-trained gelding won on debut at Sunshine Coast before running third at Eagle Farm last time out.
He is a smart type that will be better for the run and drawing barrier four is ideal against this lineup.
Look for a market push on race day.
Race 2. (12:23) Racecourse Village C6 Handicap (1000m)
#2 – Shooting for Gold – Bet @ Sportsbet
Shooting for Gold is a model of consistency with five wins and two second placings from nine starts, so he is well worth following.
The son of Shooting to Win comes off a fresh-up win at Eagle Farm and it came by two lengths, so it was a comfortable outing.
We’re expecting something similar against this field, which is there for the taking.
Race 3. (12:58) Gallopers Sports Club C3 Plate (1000m)
#6 – Ready Babe @ $3.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ready Babe ran well fresh up and she’s capable of handling this class. The four-year-old has yet to race at Eagle Farm, but she rarely runs a bad race.
She is a daughter of Better than Ready that owns three wins and three placings from 10 starts, so we’re not shocked by the odds.
Market confidence is good and she goes on top from the inside draw.
Race 4. (13:33) Cascade Handicap (1200m)
#7 – Peppi La Few @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Peppi La Few returned from a spell in good order when running second at Doomben, so he could kick on with it now.
The Edmonds-trained son of Pierro owns six wins and 10 placings from 25 starts, so he is consistent and good enough to handle this field.
54kg on his back is ideal and that brings him into contention.
Race 5. (14:12) XXXX Dry Handicap (1800m)
#3 – Titled Tycoon @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old owns two wins from six starts and he was an emphatic winner at Newcastle last time out.
He won by 4.8 lengths and although he has yet to race at Eagle Farm, New South Wales form should stack up nicely at this level.
Barrier 10 is the only negative, but it shouldn’t matter over this distance.
Race 6. (14:52) Spirit of Boom BM78 (1800m)
#5 – London Banker @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet
London Banker comes off back-to-back third placings at Gold Coast and Eagle Farm, which is good enough form for this contest.
The well-bred son of Tavistock is a four-time winner from 17 starts and he was only a length behind the winner last start.
$7 is a fair price from bookmakers and we’re happy with those odds.
Race 7. (15:28) Sky Racing C3 Plate (1400m)
#2 – Dreamreacher @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Looking to cap off consistent form is Dreamreacher, which has rattled off five consecutive placings.
The five-year-old owns three wins and seven placings from 11 starts, and he has yet to miss a win or placing in four attempts at Eagle Farm.
Punters should expect a tidy effort at each-way odds.
Race 8. (16:08) Tab Handicap (1200m)
#7 – Shanjomi @ $8.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Shanjomi is a three-year-old filly that comes off a win at Doomben and she is capable of producing the goods again.
The daughter of Dream Ahead gets every chance off the inside draw and with only 54kg on her back, we like her chances of scoring.
Each-way odds are available and it’s a generous quote.
Race 9. (16:43) Mekka Wed Races BM80 (1200m)
#13 – Snow Valley @ $10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Snow Valley hasn’t done much in two runs back from a spell, but the five-year-old mare could be ready to strike.
She is a well-bred daughter of Snitzel that owns four wins from 20 starts, and although she’s a risky bet, punters get odds worth taking.
Include her in selections.
