Eagle Farm horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:38) Tab Venue Mode C3 Handicap (1500m)
#4 – Ciccina – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Kris Lees-trained four-year-old has already scored three wins this preparation, so we’re not leaving her out of calculations.
She scored by a half-length at Gold Coast last start, and she had plenty of betting support on that occasion. We expect similar betting support this time around.
Race 2. (13:13) XXXX Dry Handicap (1000m)
#3 – Brave Chase – Bet @ Sportsbet
Brave Chase wasn’t asked to do much in her only trial at Doomben, so she could save her best form for race day.
The two-year-old filly by Better than Ready is in good hands, and she’s bred to show early speed.
Barrier five and having Jim Byrne in the saddle is ideal.
Race 3. (13:48) Mount Franklin BM78 (2218m)
#4 – Group Think – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Edward O’Rourke-trained gelding owns four wins and nine placings from 24 starts, so he is rarely too far away from the prize.
He has had only one start at Eagle Farm, but we were impressed with his win at Sunshine Coast last time out.
Punters should expect each-way odds.
Race 4. (14:23) Madison Cleaning BM75 (1200m)
#3 – Able Mabel – Bet @ Sportsbet
Able Mabel looked good earlier this preparation when winning at Sunshine Coast, and her form since has been steady.
She is a five-year-old mare who owns four wins from 10 starts, so getting 3kg off her back bodes well for this contest.
Barrier two is ideal and she can handle this field.
Race 5. (14:58) HMW Group BM75 (1200m)
#11 – Whozyadeeler – Bet @ Sportsbet
Whozyadeeler is a five-year-old gelding who showed plenty of ability when winning his first two career starts.
The son of Dundeel was only fair at Ipswich last start, but he wasn’t too far behind. He was only 1.5 lengths behind the winner, so we’re giving him another chance.
Carrying a light weight could do the trick.
Race 6. (15:33) Liquor Legends Handicap (1600m)
#2 – New Arrangement @ $3.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
New Arrangement scored a win fresh up, and although beaten in four runs since, he meets an even field here.
The Chris Waller-trained gelding owns two wins at this distance and he handles all track conditions, so the soft conditions won’t be an issue.
Punters get a value price, so put him on top.
Race 7. (16:23) Clear to Work St Rita’s Cup (1200m)
#8 – Georgie’s Pride @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Georgie’s Pride is a professional six-time winner from 13 starts, and with five wins coming on the track, she is worth following.
The four-year-old mare by Better than Ready loves racing on a good surface, but she’s also capable with the sting out of the ground.
Carrying 54kg brings her into contention.
Race 8. (17:00) Lexus Quality (1400m)
#1 – Rhapsody Rose @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Rhapsody Blue is nearing a win after consecutive fourths, including one behind Oriential Princess last start.
The three-year-old filly by Star Witness has since won a trial by a half-length, so that should top her off nicely for this race.
Having Ryan Maloney in the saddle is ideal.
Race 9. (17:40) Springsocial C6 Handicap (1400m)
#6 – Ziemba @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old gelding is a two-time winner from three starts at Eagle Farm, so he should get conditions to suit.
He comes off a fair effort for fourth at Doomben, but that was a strong field. This is another strong field, but dropping to 53kg helps.
We’re happy to take the $4.80 available with bookmakers.
Race 10. (18:23) Sky Racing C6 Handicap (1000m)
#4 – Lashes @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Lashes is a five-time winner that scored a win at Doomben last season in impressive fashion.
The six-year-old mare has yet to race at Eagle Farm, which is surprising, but it’s a track that should suit the mare.
She gets 3kg off her back and she is worth backing.
