Eagle Farm horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:33) BRC Membership Maiden (1000m)
#8 – Menazzi – Bet @ Sportsbet
The three-year-old gelding finished second on debut at Ipswich and he could return a winner after the spell.
He has since won a trial at Sunshine Coast by 3.3 lengths, so the class is there, and we’re expecting bookmakers to have him safe in the market.
The inside draw with 52kg on his back makes him an excellent bet.
Race 2. (13:11) Mount Franklin Handicap (1400m)
#4 – Peppi La Few – Bet @ Sportsbet
Peppi La Few is getting awfully close to breaking through for the win after three consecutive second placings.
The six-year-old is a six-time winner from 27 starts who likes the track and loves the distance. He owns five wins and two placings from nine starts over 1400m, so we’re expecting another top effort.
Getting the inside draw only adds to his appeal.
Race 3. (13:46) Spring Carnival on Sale Maiden (1400m)
#10 – Canadian Dancer – Bet @ Sportsbet
Canadian Dancer is a three-year-old filly who finished second on debut at Sunshine Coast last time out.
The daughter of Vancouver was only a half-length behind the winner as an odds-on favourite. We expect that form to stack up nicely this season, so she’s worth following.
Punters should expect short odds again.
Race 4. (14:21) Sky Racing Maiden Handicap (1400m)
#2 – Kirkeby – Bet @ Sportsbet
Chris Waller lines up the four-year-old son of Kermadec, who comes off a handy second placing at Gold Coast.
He finished off nicely behind Whitewater, and it won’t take him long to breakthrough for a maiden win. Barrier four is ideal and having Luke Dittman in the saddle helps.
Punters should get each-way odds with bookmakers.
Race 5. (14:56) XXXX Dry C3 Handicap (1000m)
#2 – Comtemptuous – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old son of Rubick owns three wins and four placings from eight starts, so the consistent type is worth following.
He finished second behind Tramonto at Doomben last time out, which should be a good form guide for spring racing. He might have needed the run, so having race fitness is ideal.
Getting the inside draw is ideal and we’re not expecting long odds.
Race 6. (15:31) Cairns Amateurs Carnival C1 (1200m)
#6 – Brilliantly – Bet @ Sportsbet
Brilliantly lived up to her name at Sunshine Coast last start when beating Canadian Dancer, which could be franked earlier in the day.
The five-year-old daughter of Shamus Award showed a good turn-of-foot to win, which could kick-start a winning streak.
Barrier 12 makes it tough over this distance, but we wouldn’t overlook her chances.
Race 7. (16:06) Tab Venue Mode BM65 (1800m)
#6 – Galaxy Belle – Bet @ Sportsbet
Galaxy Belle is shooting for her fourth win from her last five starts, so she’s the form runner of this field.
The Kris Lees-trained four-year-old scored at Sunshine Coast two back by 2.3 lengths before winning at Gold Coast by 3.5 lengths.
She is unbeaten in two starts at this distance, so we’re happy to put her on top.
Race 8. (16:41) Country Music C2 Handicap (1400m)
#1 – Way Beyond – Bet @ Sportsbet
Way Beyond didn’t fire at Doomben last time out, but the four-year-old should bounce back at this level of racing.
The son of Spill the Beans looked good prior to that when placing at Doomben and Eagle Farm, so that form should be good enough.
3kg comes off his back and punters should get each-way odds.
