Eagle Farm horse racing tips

Race 1. (11:38) Members’ Cocktail Night Handicap (1400m)

#5 – Tyresa @ $3 – Bet @ Neds

Tyresa comes off a win at Eagle Farm and we fancy her chances of going back-to-back.

The two-year-old daughter of Written Tycoon got the better of some smart types at $16, so we’re not surprised by her much shorter odds on Saturday.

Getting the inside draw is ideal and punters should be confident.

Race 2. (12:13) Sky Racing BM85 (1815m)

#5 – Namazu @ $3.80 – Bet @ Neds

Namazu is shooting for three consecutive wins after scoring at $1.14 at Rockhampton last time out.

The four-year-old gelding is a professional six-time winner from 20 starts, so he knows how to win on a consistent basis.

Carrying 54.5kg is ideal and we’re expecting another nice effort.

Race 3. (12:48) Stradbroke Ball BM78 (2400m)

#1 – Street Dancer @ $2.45 – Bet @ Neds

Street Dancer comes off a six-length win at Doomben as the odds-on favourite and the rise in distance worked.

Getting up to 2400m shouldn’t pose any problems for the son of Pride of Dubai and he has been confidently backed.

His odds could firm to around $2.10 come race day, so take the early value.

Race 4. (13:23) Happy Easter from the BRC Handicap (1000m)

#4 – Glamborgini @ $2.70 – Bet @ Neds

Glamborgini won on debut at Gold Coast by two lengths before finishing fourth behind a potential star.

The two-year-old filly should find this level of racing more to her liking and dropping to 54kg should make a big difference.

Her odds are holding firm and that’s a good sign.

Race 5. (13:58) Cascade BM80 (1500m)

#11 – Festival Prince @ $2.30 – Bet @ Neds

Festival Prince owns five wins from eight starts and he was close to scoring at Eagle Farm fresh up.

The four-year-old son of Fruehling got too far back in the run and had to make up ground, so settling closer would be ideal.

Carrying 55kg is ideal and we’re happy with the odds.

Race 6. (14:37) Stradbroke High Tea BM72 (1600m)

#2 – Always Sure @ $7 – Bet @ Neds

Always Sure didn’t fire at Rosehill behind Achira, but he should find this easier and we expect a form reversal.

The four-year-old gelding is unbeaten in two starts over the mile and his fourth at Rosehill two back is a better form guide.

Punters should take the $7 as it’s a value price.

Race 7. (15:22) XXXX Daybreak Lover (1400m)

#8 – Green Belt @ $2.30 – Bet @ Neds

We liked the chances of Green Belt last week in Sydney before he got scratched, so we’re really loving his chances in Queensland.

The three-year-old colt is unbeaten after two starts in Melbourne and he only needs to deal with an outside draw to win.

It’s not an easy field, but Green Belt could have the class edge.

Race 8. (16:02) Tab Ascot Quality Handicap (1000m)

#1 – Zoustyle @ $2.90 – Bet @ Neds

Zoustyle owns nine wins from 14 starts, so punters are backing a consistent type.

The six-year-old gelding is a five-time winner fresh up, and although he’s yet to race at Eagle Farm, he won a trial here late last year.

He owns good barrier speed and he should be tough to run down.

Race 9. (16:38) Tab Stradbroke Calcutta BM80 (1200m)

#4 – On the Lead @ $6 – Bet @ Neds

On the Lead has yet to win in eight attempts at the distance, but we like his chances of success.

The son of I Am Invincible was only 2.4 lengths behind Delexo last start and it was a tough race.

Getting barrier four is ideal and punters enjoy each-way odds.
