Eagle Farm Betting Preview | Horse Racing Tips

The rail is out six metres the entire circuit but the track should play relatively fairly.

The rail is out six metres the entire circuit but the track should play relatively fairly. However, on some days speed bias plays a major role at Eagle Farm and in particular if the track is rock hard.

The reason is the winners run great sectionals and it is usually those up on the pace who win. This is a typical off-season meeting with some ordinary races but a good two-year-old and an excellent three- year-old races.

R1 – 12.27pm ANN NUGENT@R&W WILSTON/WINDSOR QTIS Two-Years-Old Handicap - 1000m

TEN FOOT TALL We have gone for value here on a horse who was well beaten at her only start. But she has won two recent jump outs and is by champion sire I Am Invincible. She has reportedly been working well this week.

PARADIS IMPERIAL She has won her only four races in Rockhampton and Mackay. Can run on the pace or lead. Central Queensland has a record of producing top two-year-olds who can race well in Brisbane.

CRUSHER Demolished an ordinary two-year-old field at Toowoomba at his only start. From a strong Darling Downs stable and should be in the finish here from handy barrier.

ZUKAZ Missed a run in the Magic Millions Classic last week and then scratched on Wednesday for this. Each-way hopes are strong.

SELECTIONS: NO 9 TEN FOOT TALL, NO 1 Paradis Imperial, NO 5 Crusher, NO 6 Zukaz

VALUE RUNNER: NO 9 Ten Foot Tall

R2 – 1.02pm R&W WILSTON/WINDSOR FOR PROPERTY MANAGEMENT BenchMark 75 Handicap - 2200m

GAME PIE Is a plodder but so are the rest of this field. Didn't run a bad race last time when fourth in a Metropolitan standard race at the Gold Coast. He is nicely placed here at the weights.

CITATIONS From an astute Sydney stable and has been around the place his two starts this area. He is fit and ready to win one of these.

SCOTTY BE GOTTI Usually races his best at the Gold Coast where he looked certain to win on the home turn before being run down in final 150m last start. Each-way claims here.

QUICK SNITZEL He is yet to win at the distance but gives every indication he can be a handy stayer. Nice run last start and looks well placed here with a claim.

SELECTIONS: NO 10 GAME PIE, NO 5 Citations, NO 4 Scotty Be Gotti, NO 2 Quick Snitzel

VALUE RUNNER: NO 2 Quick Snitzel

R3 – 1.37pm RANDW.COM.AU/WILSTON-WINDSOR No More Than Two Metro Wins Handicap - 1200m

NO 7 KHALEESI (BEST BET) There are few more consistent mares racing in Queensland and she was very strong at her last-start win. She was once ridden for pace in her races but now being ridden from behind and finishing hard. The stable has the knack of keeping their mares racing in top form and she will be hard to beat again.





EXECUTED Prolific winner who won last year's QTC Lightning. Good effort when second first-up under a huge weight and has a perfect barrier draw here. Looks very hard to beat as he should get the run of the race.

ESPIRITU (Best Roughie) It has been a while since she has won but on her day would be right in the finish here. Has a very good second-up record and didn't have a lot of luck first-up in a tougher race.

EL SASSO Smart Sydney performer on his day although he probably wants the sting out of the track. Has class on his side.

HARD STRIDE Has usually been about the place in this type of race. He has a 3kgs claim here which brings him right into the race. Wide barriers are not always a disadvantage from this start.

SELECTIONS: NO 2 EXECUTED, NO 8 Espiritu, NO 5 El Sasso, NO 1 Hard Stride



DYLAN'S LUCK If ever a horse needs to live up to his name it is Dylan's Luck who has had no luck his last few runs. A very good second last time gives him a top chance here.

ALWAYS SACRED He is smart on his day and had no luck first-up before being ordinary last time at the Gold Coast. If he strikes form he will be hard to beat.

PAJADOS Has been racing very well in the northern rivers which usually isn't good enough for this type of race. But might be slightly above average so should be respected.

JETSONIC He has always shown potential and is in the right type of race here. Didn't have much luck last start and fitter now.

SELECTIONS: NO 4 DYLAN'S LUCK, NO 1 Always Sacred, NO 8 Pajados, NO 5 Jetsonic


R6 – 3.32pm ASCOT CHILDCARE & KINDY - DROP & RIDE THE TRAIN QTIS 3-Y-O Handicap - 1200m

NO 1 RINGO'S A ROCKSTAR (NEXT BEST BET) This is the best race of the day but Ringo's A Rockstar does appear to have a lot going for him. He has a 3kgs claim and a good barrier. He has never finished worse than fourth and there is no reason to think he will start now.




R7 – 4.12pm ASCOTCHILDCARE.COM.AU OPEN Handicap - 1600m

L'ENTRECOTE He has been racing well for a long time and seems to go best when he gets a good barrier and can sit on the pace. Drawn barrier one here with a top jockey so should be hard to hold out.

SHOREHAM He was very well backed at the Gold Coast last start and ran a very good second after having no luck. On his old form would beat these by lengths but not getting any younger.

LORDAG Has been a disappointment this campaign as he has failed to run a place in five starts. Hasn't been far away in stronger races so must be considered here.

BLUE LION Another who has been disappointing at last couple of runs. This is his best distance and he is down in the weights. Not without a knock out chance in this.

SELECTIONS: NO 3 L'ENTRECOTE, NO 1 Shoreham, NO 6 Lordag, NO 9 Blue Lion


R8 – 4.48pm ASCOT CHILDCARE & KINDY OPENING SOON Class 6 Handicap - 1400m

FORGOTTEN YEARS We keep tipping him, he keeps running great races but something usually goes wrong and he is just off the winner at the finish. It was the same story last time when nosed out of third by a 50-1 shot. This is his last chance with us but has everything going for him here.

DENARIUS He is a very promising horse but never has any luck. Once again he has drawn off the track here but with any luck can be in the finish.

PRINCESS CHARM How she is an emergency after her last start storming win is anyone’s guess. But if she gets a run will nearly win this from good barrier with no weight.

HOTEL DRIVE If he can get an easy lead he will be hard to beat here. But that is a big if. Still rates highly from excellent barrier.

SELECTIONS: NO 6 FORGOTTEN YEARS, NO 4 Denarius, NO 19 Princess Charm, NO 10 Hotel Drive

VALUE RUNNER: NO 10 Hotel Drive
