Eagle Farm horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:15) Xmas Twilight Raceday (1600m)
#2 – Big Muskie – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Tony Gollan-trained three-year-old has been right around the mark in three starts to date, including a win at Doomben.
He followed the narrow win with a second placing at Eagle Farm when running 2.5 lengths behind Rhapsody Rose, which is a good form line.
We expect him to be tough to beat.
Race 2. (11:50) Tab Venue Mode BM80 (2131m)
#4 – Aswaat – Bet @ Sportsbet
Aswaat doesn’t know how to run a bad race after posting three wins and six placings from 13 starts.
The four-year-old mare owns a win and a placing at Eagle Farm, and her most recent effort behind Youngblood had plenty of merit.
The distance in distance is ideal, so keep her safe.
Race 3. (12:50) Moet & Chandon Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Mishani Warfare – Bet @ Sportsbet
Mishani Warfare is getting close to a win after consecutive placings to open his career.
The Les Ross-trained son of The Mission finished second on debut at Toowoomba before running third behind Palazzo Spirit on this track.
Punters should expect him to be well-backed on race day.
Race 4. (13:10) Harvey Norman Queensland Handicap (1000m)
#1 – Stellar Magic – Bet @ Sportsbet
Class is with Stellar Magic, who did well to finish second fresh up behind Glorious Ruby.
The three-year-old filly has yet to finish worse than second in four starts at Eagle Farm, so she has been a consistent bet for punters.
Barrier eight makes it tricky, but she should go well.
Race 5. (13:50) Canadian Club C3 Plate (1200m)
#4 – Brave Warrior – Bet @ Sportsbet
Searching for three consecutive wins is Brave Warrior, who scored at Doomben before winning at Ipswich last start.
He went forward last start and held on gamely, so that was a tough effort, and it bodes well for Saturday’s race.
It’s a tough field, but getting the 2kg claim helps.
Race 6. (14:36) Padua College Quality (1825m)
#6 – Milk Man – Bet @ Sportsbet
Milk Man returned to winning form for Matthew Smith last start, which was good to see.
The eight-year-old had shown good early promise when arriving in Australia, but went through a rough patch.
He has seemingly come out the other side, and he’s worth sticking with.
Race 7. (15:21) XXXX Dry BM80 (1000m)
#1 – Genzai the Wolf – Bet @ Sportsbet
David Murphy lines up the experience runner, who scored on this track by a short margin last start.
The five-year-old son of Bullet Train has finished in the money in 10 of his 11 starts at Eagle Farm, so he loves the surface.
Barrier three is ideal and we’re confident of another big effort.
Race 8. (16:01) Nova BM75 (1600m)
#1 – Montez – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old is always around the mark, so he has given punters plenty of value throughout his career.
He comes off consecutive placings, and although yet to win from five attempts at Eagle Farm, he shouldn’t take long to get off the mark.
2kg comes off his back, so include.
Race 9. (16:41) Lexus C6 Plate (1400m)
#7 – Champagne Aunty – Bet @ Sportsbet
Champagne Aunty looked good when winning three on the bounce, and we’re prepared to overlook her recent efforts.
She finished ninth at Gold Coast before running third at Toowoomba, but her best form comes at Eagle Farm.
Punters should get each-way odds on race day.
Race 10. (17:22) Sky Racing C3 Plate (1200m)
#8 – Cherry Soda – Bet @ Sportsbet
Cherry Soda comes off a win at Ipswich and punters should get generous odds for her on Saturday.
The well-bred daughter of Fastnet Rock is drawn to get a nice drag into the race, and we’re prepared to take the risk.
Watch for any late betting moves.
