Eagle Farm horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:13) TAB C6 Handicap (1830m)
#5 – Tatcee – Bet Now
Tatcee loomed to win last start but was only narrowly beaten by a nose at Eagle Farm.
Punters should take nothing away from that effort and she could get back to winning form here.
She’s a Chris Waller-trained runner which has figured in the finish in 12 of her 20 starts and she should add to that here.
Race 2. (12:52) Orthochick Handicap (1000m)
#1 – Rothfire – Bet Now
Rothfire is the only runner with race-day experience and that’s going to help her chances.
The Robert Heathcote-trained two-year-old scored by a nose on debut when beating Gotta Kiss, which has since run very well.
That form bodes well for this and we’re expecting another tidy effort.
Race 3. (13:32) College Plate C6 (1000m)
#8 – The Odyssey – Bet Now
Punters have been burned by The Odyssey this season but we’re giving him another chance.
The Kelly Schweida-trained son of More Than Ready won four races when last in work and returned to solid form when third last time out.
He was only a short head behind the winner, so it was a solid run and this race is there for the taking.
Race 4. (14:12) Tonic Design C3 Plate (1000m)
#7 – Flaming Boss – Bet Now
Flaming Boss is an unbeaten gelding which scored impressively by 4.3 lengths at Ipswich last time out.
The son of Hinchinbrook was a winner on debut at Doomben and he didn’t give them a chance to win at Ipswich.
Anything close to that run sees him winning this, despite being up in grade.
Race 5. (14:52) Hillross Montefiore C3 Plate (1000m)
#3 – Hollaback Girl – Bet Now
Hollaback Girl broke through for an overdue win at Ipswich last start and she could kick on with it now.
Trained by Tony Gollan, the four-year-old has won three from seven starts and she could add another win to that record.
Her only run on this track wasn’t good, but she’s suited by the track and should run accordingly.
Race 6. (15:37) Family Healthcare Centre (1200m)
#4 – Zac Attack – Bet Now
Zac Attack has only been beaten once from four starts and that record should be respected.
The three-year-old filly suffered her first defeat on this track three back but has since rebounded with style.
She scored a 2.3-length win at Grafton before redeeming herself on this track when scoring on October 19.
54kg helps and she has every chance to win.
Race 7. (16:27) Weareco R70 Handicap (1600m)
#9 – My Belly Button – Bet Now
My Belly Button has won his last two starts and could add another here.
The five-year-old gelding scored by a half-length at Toowoomba to start October and he backed that up with another win at Ipswich.
This is much harder but he gets the inside draw with an apprentice claim to help.
Race 8. (17:08) Lite ‘N’ Easy 0MW (1200m)
#9 – Take Tea – Bet Now
Take Tea has been superb this season with consecutive wins and she could win again.
Both wins have come by narrow margins at Gold Coast and Ipswich, so that form should stack up nicely at Eagle Farm.
Dropping down to 54kg here helps and having experienced rider Jim Byrne in the saddle is never a negative.
Race 9. (17:52) Padua College BM75 (1400m)
#10 – Beat The Beast – Bet Now
Five-year-old gelding Beat The Beast is in great form after winning three of his last five starts.
The son of Rothesay scored by just under a length at Sunshine Coast last start and he ran second on this track prior to that.
He loves this distance with 13 starts for four wins and five placings. Good chance at adding to that record in this.
Race 10. (18:32) BRC Memberships Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Belflyer – Bet Now
Belflyer didn’t fire at Randwick last time out but we’re expecting a quick form turnaround from the eight-year-old.
He’s a winner of 14 races and that can’t be overlooked here. He has finished in the money in 28 of his 58 starts, which could see a form reversal here.
Gets some weight off his back to help.
