Eagle Farm horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:43) The Conservatory at Tatt’s C3 (1600m)
#2 – Bold Pedro – Bet @ Neds
Bold Pedro has been right around the mark this season, including back-to-back wins at Rockhampton.
The four-year-old gelding has yet to race at Eagle Farm but there are no superstars in this field and he could take advantage.
Punters should get value odds.
Race 2. (12:18) Impressu Print Group BM78 (1200m)
#5 – Never Paid – Bet @ Neds
Never Paid is shooting for three consecutive wins after scoring at Ipswich and Gold Coast and his recent win came easily.
The son of Better Than Ready scored by 4.5 lengths in a one-sided display and that form is worth following on Saturday.
It’s a tough field so punters should get value odds.
Race 3. (12:53) 97.3FM Tatt’s Gold Crown (2150m)
#1 – Our Intrigue @ $1.70 – Bet @ Neds
Our Intrigue is only a five-time winner but she has taken on tough types and the odds aren’t surprising.
The Chris Waller-trained mare went close at Ipswich last time out when going close behind Smart Meteor and she gets the inside draw.
We don’t think she will shorten much lower than her current odds.
Race 4. (13:28) Tattersall’s Cup (2400m)
#2 – Esti Feny @ $2.40 – Bet @ Neds
Esti Feny was good when running fourth behind Numerian in the Q22 and that form stacks up brilliantly for this contest.
The seven-year-old hasn’t won for some time but he owns two wins at the distance and we’re not surprised by the shortening odds.
Carrying 55kg is another positive and we’re in his camp.
Race 5. (14:03) Battle of the Bush Final (1200m)
#1 – Star of O’Reilly @ $4 – Bet @ Neds
The Todd Austin-trained six-year-old is a 12-time winner from 37 starts and he demands attention in the Battle of the Bush.
He is a five-time winner at the distance and his best form comes in these conditions, so we’re happy to take the $4 available.
His odds could shorten on race day.
Race 6. (14:38) Edward Street Brisbane Handicap (1200m)
#8 – Burning Ball @ $3.50 – Bet @ Neds
Burning Ball is shooting for her fourth consecutive win after scoring at Sunshine Coast last time out.
The Edmonds-trained three-year-old needs to handle a different class of field, but she looks to have plenty of upside.
Barrier three is ideal and punters should be happy with the odds available.
Race 7. (15:13) Tattersall’s Life Members (1400m)
#2 – Johnny Rocker @ $5.50 – Bet @ Neds
Johnny Rocker showed some class when winning at Eagle Farm last start and that form should carry over to this race.
The two-year-old colt won by 1.5 lengths against some nice types and he shouldn’t find this race any harder, so the $5.50 is generous.
He should push forward and be tough to run down.
Race 9. (16:37) Eureka Stud W.J. Healy Stakes (1200m)
#8 – King of Sparta @ $2.90 – Bet @ Neds
King of Sparta comes off some solid trial form and the Snowden-trained gelding looks ready to fire.
The son of I Am Invincible won the Magic Millions Guineas, so he’s a big-race winner and his fresh up form reads well.
Carrying 54kg is a steal and we’re not surprised by the weight of money coming his way.
