Meeting: Eagle Farm
Date: 21st September
Rail: +7m entire course
Track Condition: Good 4
Track Expectations: Track should really play perfectly at Eagle Farm. A few showers on Saturday morning will not be an issue as long as they do not over water the track prior.
Smug Satisfaction scratched last week looks very well placed this time around as does Jay Jay D’ar. They look to control this race and look to be the top two rated runners.
Boom Boom Epic will try and hold the front with the apprentice claiming a few kilos. Makdanife likely holds a spot behind the leaders from barrier 1 which will be a bonus while the favourite Ocean Addict faces the challenge of spotting most of them a start.
Profit is still very green but has a stack of ability. Comes down to price but he is without doubt the hardest runner to beat here. Stablemate Guntantes will be up on speed and make his own luck.
Italia Bella will press forward from barrier 1 and rates well here. Tatcee likely to be ridden cold but has enough acceleration to figure albeit we would prefer to be on third or fourth up.
Jagged Edge sure to be in the market here. He won a listed race second-up last preparation. Thought he did enough fresh and deserves top billing. Koonunga more of a place betting proposition given the start he will spot the leaders.
Trevelyan gets the favours here just settling in behind the leaders on what should only be a moderate pace. Well suited after Steph Thornton’s claim. Miss Shanti a runner that I would suggest focusing more on the place or multiples line.
Plenty of runners who like to sit in the front half of the field here making it a tricky speed map. Mail Escort should be each-way odds and should be midfield with some cover off the fence. Sharpamal the blowout if the track is suiting leaders.
Probably the race of the day this one. Kubis maps so well but I would prefer a senior jockey booked. Reckless Choice up in grade a little bit but can figure, would need each-way odds to back. Looks Like Elvis is flying this prep but that sticky barrier is a concern.
Good race to finish with lots of chances. Plenty of speed but the map works itself out pretty easily. Unlikely Story faces a sticky map despite being well placed ratings wise. Raffle the next lot in the market. Suggest you go wide in the quaddie!
