Eagle Farm horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:01) Millers Swim School Maiden (1800m)
#8 – Victoria Park – Bet @ Sportsbet
Victoria Park is improving with every run and the three-year-old gelding comes off a second placing at Sunshine Coast.
The son of Spirit of Boom has enjoyed rising in distance and staying at 1800m shouldn’t worry him. He hit the line nicely last start and that’s always a good sign.
Ryan Maloney rides and punters could get each-way odds.
Race 2. (12:36) XXXX Dry Maiden (1400m)
#5 – Millward – Bet @ Sportsbet
Millward comes off back-to-back second placings and the colt was only a nose behind the winner last time out.
He is a son of Al Maher that is getting close to a win and although there are some nice maiden types in this field, he’s capable of handling it.
Look for positive late betting moves.
Race 3. (13:11) Sky Racing C3 Handicap (1400m)
#9 – Safeeya – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old filly should have won more than one of her 11 starts, but she gets another good chance on Wednesday.
She comes off consecutive placings, including a second placing behind Nikau Spur at Sandown. That form bodes well for midweek racing in Queensland and she gets in with only 54kg.
We expect plenty of money to come her way on race day.
Race 4. (13:46) Mullins Lawyers Maiden (1200m)
#2 – Chaperone – Bet @ Sportsbet
Chaperone is on debut for Team Edmonds and he looks well-placed to make a winning start to his career.
The three-year-old son of Rubick owns two trial wins from three attempts and he went close behind a smart type at Gold Coast last start.
Having Ryan Maloney in the saddle helps and he should be right in the thick of the action.
Race 5. (14:21) Souths Sports Club BM78 (1600m)
#4 – I Could Do Better – Bet @ Sportsbet
Chris Waller lines up the five-year-old gelding that comes off a win at Gold Coast and he could kick on with the job.
The son of Canford Cliffs scored by a length in this grade and he has since been primed with a trial win a Gold Coast, so he’s running.
Dropping to the mile is a slight concern given his distance statistics, but his confidence levels have risen.
Race 6. (14:56) Gallopers Sports Club BM75 (1200m)
#5 – Lashoni – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lashoni is more than capable of handling this field and the five-year-old mare goes well at this distance.
She owns three wins and three placings over 1200m, so she is a solid sprinter and she doesn’t often take long to find her best form.
The daughter of Shamus Award owns a win at Eagle Farm and she could add another.
Race 7. (15:31) Tab Venue Mode C2 Handicap (1000m)
#1 – Rotator – Bet @ Sportsbet
The David Vandyke-trained four-year-old has changed stables and racing in Queensland could help the enigmatic type.
She has promised a lot throughout her career and the two-win type does her best racing fresh up, so she could strike.
She looked good winning a recent trial and the betting will be interesting.
Race 8. (16:06) Spirit of Boom BM65 (1200m)
#4 – Hey Big Splenda – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Edmonds-trained three-year-old didn’t do much wrong last preparation, which included a win and two placings from four starts.
He has yet to race at Eagle Farm but the lengthy straight helps and it should give him time to warm up and hit the line with purpose.
Betting will be a good indicator, but we expect a tidy performance.
Race 9. (16:41) Ekka Wednesday Races C1 (1200m)
#3 – Sacred Zim – Bet @ Sportsbet
Punters should stick with Sacred Zim despite two defeats this preparation. The three-year-old comes off a third placing at Sunshine Coast and he was under a length behind the winner.
He looked good winning three back before heading for a spell, so he might have needed the race fitness.
Barrier four is ideal and he should prove tough to handle.
