Eagle Farm horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:53) TAB Plate (1000m)
#5 – Lady Grazier – Bet Now
Lady Grazier is on debut after posting an impressive trial win at Eagle Farm.
The two-year-old filly by Not A Single Doubt scored by 1.3 lengths and ran a good time on a good track.
Tony Gollan doesn’t often go wrong with his debutantes so punters should expect to see plenty of money coming for the filly.
Race 2. (12:28) South Sports Club Plate (1000m)
#3 – Market Trader – Bet Now
Market Trader could run well on debut and there was plenty to like about his trial win.
The two-year-old colt scored by two lengths over 800m and the well-bred son of Snitzel ran it in a quick time.
That bodes well for a top debut effort and he only needs a touch of luck from barrier eight.
Race 3. (13:03) Gallopers Sports Club Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Scallopini – Bet Now
Steven O’Dea lines up the professional five-year-old which has won almost half of his career starts.
The son of Snitzel has won seven from his 15 career attempts, including his last two starts. His most recent win came at Eagle Farm when scoring by a half-length.
There are some slick sprinters in this field but he has the form on the board and should prove tough to beat.
Race 4. (13:38) Melbourne Cup Day @ Eagle Farm (1800m)
#2 – Profit – Bet Now
Profit was beaten by Guntantes last start but he’s capable of turning the tables.
Trained by Chris Anderson, the three-year-old gelding was only a head behind the winner on that occasion and he didn’t lose any admirers.
Prior to that he scored consecutive wins to open his career and he’s good enough to get the better of this field.
Drawn better than Guntantes and that could make the difference.
Race 5. (14:17) Hamilton Hotel BM70 (1800m)
#9 – Amicitia – Bet Now
Amicitia has hit top form this campaign with three wins from four starts. The Gollan-trained mare looked like a quality type when winning by 1.8 lengths last start.
She’s a three-time winner from six starts and that’s a nice start to any thoroughbred’s career.
Jake Bayliss takes the ride from barrier six and she should be hitting the line with real authority here.
Race 6. (14:57) Chairman’s Club C3 (1200m)
#5 – Pinnacle Star – Bet Now
Pinnacle Star was a beaten favourite last time out at Doomben but the four-year-old could rebound.
Trained by David Vandyke, the son of Starspangledbanner looked good prior when scoring by a length at Sunshine Coast.
Gets the inside draw here so expect Ryan Maloney to settle closer to the pace and give a good kick in the straight.
Race 7. (15:37) BRC BM85 (1600m)
#3 – Get Stuck In – Bet Now
Tony Gollan lines up the five-year-old gelding which has looked good winning six from 13 starts.
The son of Lucas Cranach comes into this having scored at Doomben last time out and he’s good enough to go back-to-back.
This isn’t an easy target but he runs better with some fitness under the belt and he should go close once again.
Race 8. (16:17) Lexus Spring Cup Quality (2225m)
#1 – Kubis – Bet Now
Kubis could bounce back from a disappointing effort on this track last start but he has the potential.
Prior to that defeat he was a back-to-back winner at Eagle Farm and it’s a track he has won at on four occasions.
Gets the inside draw and if he gets back to his best form, he’ll be tough to beat.
Race 9. (16:57) Events @ BRC C6 (1400m)
#5 – Lonhro – Bet Now
Langhro is a five-time winner from 14 starts which is going for three consecutive wins.
The O’Dea-trained seven-year-old has been lightly-tried throughout his career but really turns it on when right.
The penny might have dropped this season and he could continue with his winning ways.
