Eagle Farm horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:15) XXXX Dry C3 Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Tumbler Ridge @ $2.40 – Bet Now
Tumbler Ridge has finished in the money in five of his six starts and he missed by only a nose last time out.
The Steven O’Dea-trained colt couldn’t quite get past Starosa but he’s more than capable of going one better this time out.
His opening odds of $2.90 have been snapped up.
Race 2. (11:50) Ascot Green C6 Plate (1400m)
#8 – Red Chase @ $3.50 – Bet Now
Red Chase is in winning form after posting consecutive wins. The Desleigh Forster-trained runner scored by 4.3 lengths in a one-sided display last time out.
There’s little wrong with that form and drawing barrier six should see him land close to the speed.
Bookmakers have him at solid odds and they should remain steady throughout the week.
Race 3. (12:25) Canadian Club C6 Handicap (1000m)
#5 – Desert Man @ $5 – Bet Now
Desert Man goes hard from when the gates opened and he tries to hold on. However, he has been getting back in the run of late, so a change of tactics could be on the cards.
The seven-year-old is best placed when landing on the speed and given his record on this track, he shouldn’t be far away.
Look for him to show good speed and kick nicely.
Race 4. (13:00) Tab BM78 (1800m)
#3 – Seentoomany @ $5 – Bet Now
Seentoomany is a last-start winner that powered away for a 1.5-length win. The Michael Costa-trained mare has already won three times this preparation and that’s tough to overlook.
She’s a six-time winner in total and although there’s more depth to this field, she has every chance of going back-to-back.
Race 5. (13:40) Tab BM78 (1200m)
#4 – Solar Star @ $9 – Bet Now
Solar Star has yet to win this campaign but she’s classy at best and should be respected in this grade.
The Tony Gollan-trained mare sat on the pace at Doomben last start and held on gamely. She has two placings from two starts at Eagle Farm and a win doesn’t seem far away.
$9 is a cracking value price from bookmakers.
Race 6. (14:15) Moe & Chandon Champagne Classic (1200m)
#7 – Isotope @ $2.25 – Bet Now
Isotope didn’t win as easily as expected last start but she still posted a 2.3-length win. The Gollan-trained filly won by 10 lengths on debut and the hype was set then.
She’s facing a terrific field, which includes Rothfire and Wild Ruler. However, we’re happy to stick with her until she proves otherwise.
Watch the market because if she drifts throughout the week, that won’t be a good sign.
Race 7. (14:55) Lexus Gunsynd Classic (1800m)
#5 – Kinane @ $2 – Bet Now
Kinane is a classy customer and a huge offer was turned down by his connections. The three-year-old gelding scored a big win at Randwick last start but he does drop in distance for this race.
He also draws barrier 17, so he’s going to have to be good to win. However, he could be a Group 1 horse in the future and there are no other superstars in this field.
Profit is the second favourite and he was unable to run down Vanna Girl last start.
Race 8. (15:35) Tab Victory Stakes (1200m)
#8 – Vega One @ $4.80 – Bet Now
Vega One was unable to run them down last start but that was to be expected second-up. He was terrific fresh when he should have won, and punters could get their money back here.
The Gollan-trained gelding gets back in his races and relies on a good tempo up front. He should get that here and with Jim Byrne taking over the riding, that’s a good sign.
Race 9. (16:15) Mittys BM72 (1400m)
#2 – Potro Duro @ $7.50 – Bet Now
Potro Duro is hunting for three consecutive wins and although he’s drawn barrier 20, he just needs luck to win.
The Edmonds-trained gelding scored by one length two starts back before launching late to win by a nose at Gold Coast.
He’s a value runner here and should be respected.
