Form analyst, SCOTT MCDONELL, previews Saturday’s Eagle Farm meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 9 races. Good luck, punters!
Track Condition: Good 4
Rail Position: Out 3m entire circuit
TYRESA sprinted away last 200m to win with something in hand here last start. Drawn to get the ideal run in transit and she can win again.
GREEN SHADOWS finished too well and got his maiden out of the way on debut. Will be better from that race experience and can measure up to these.
COCOBREW EXPRESS raced up on the speed and got the job done here two starts back then he just went too hard here last start and tired. He will be the one to catch.
NAMAZU has been racing in super form in easier races up north. Dominant at Townsville then just as smart at Rockhampton last start. He can measure up to city class.
REGGIEWOOD proved too strong at Kensington two starts back then failed on the heavy ground last start. Should get firmer ground and can bounce back in this.
STAR OF MICHELIN won similar race here three back then just battled in last couple. Back in right race and can bounce back to best form.
STREET DANCER gave them a galloping lesson when he cleared away to win at Doomben last start. Drawn perfectly and can go on with it here.
LUNASNIT should have finished a little closer here last start after being held-up final stages. Drawn to get all the favours in the run and just needs to get run at right time.
RATIONS is a model of consistency. Won two straight then was only claimed final stages here last start. She gets chance to return to winners stall.
Tip: STREET DANCER
ACCEBER relished the heavy ground and got the prize at Newcastle on debut. Will be better from the race experience and can measure up to this.
GLAMBORGINI won from the front at Gold Coast on debut then she battled on well last start and just missed placing. Will go forward and take catching again.
INVINOVICH resumes from a spell. He was placed in both Sunshine Coast runs at first prep and recent trial placing will have him ready for this.
FESTIVAL PRINCE is ready to win again and will not get better chance than this. He was claimed last stride here last start and gets chance to go one better.
BULLFINCH made a winning Queensland debut when finished too well here last start. He can go on with it here and win again.
ENTERPRISE PRINCE just missed in a driving finish here first-up then forget last start when never got a clear crack at them. Third-up and drawn to get ideal run.
Tip: FESTIVAL PRINCE
Going to have something each way on SIENNA’S CHOICE third-up from a spell. Made some good late ground at Doomben last start and if she sits bit closer can figure.
GAVE US UP won with something in hand at Sunshine Coast two back then never put in the race last start. Nice race for him here.
ALWAYS SURE was not beaten all that far in nice race at Rosehill two starts back before battling on the heavy ground last start. He will be competitive in this.
Tip: SIENNA’S CHOICE
DARK DESTROYER is a Kiwi crossing the Tasman first-up from a spell. Looks a class above most of these having won at Group 2 level before break.
GREEN BELT is the big watch resuming from a spell. Won both starts in Victoria at first campaign and if forward enough he can get away with this.
RELEASE THE BEANS looked the unlucky runner here when placed first-up from break. Missed the start then was held-up in straight. Drawn ideally and will go close.
Tip: DARK DESTROYER
ZOUSTYLE resumes from a spell. He flies fresh having won five of seven first-up runs, most recent at Sunshine Coast when dominant. Top chance.
WRITTEN BEAUTY is another fresh from a break. She was not beaten all that far in some nice races during the spring. Battled in two trials since but must consider.
SHOOTING FOR GOLD was placed behind Zoustyle when fresh at Sunshine Coast last campaign. Won trial leading into this and must consider.
SIR WARWICK started favourite at Sunshine Coast first-up and finished the race off strongly to just miss. Sure to be better from the outing and can go one better.
ON THE LEAD comes into this ready third-up from spell. Should have finished closer after finding some trouble here last start and expect he will be in finish.
PLATINUM EUROS is another who did not have the best of luck when beaten less than a length here first-up. Will strip fitter and can go one better.
