Eagle Farm Tips - November 2

Race 1 - 11:13AM TAB Class 6 Handicap (1830 METRES)
Looks a race in three (on paper) with the Chris Waller-trained TATCEE getting the nod from me. The four-year-old has come back in great touch with top-three finishes in three of her four starts this time in. Second-up she was an impressive winner here over the mile. Then last start, the Foxwedge mare finished strongly to grab second prize here in a BM70 beaten a head while carrying 59.5kgs. She drops 5kgs from that run here and has a great record at the track. Drawn the fence, she looks the one to beat.

Race 4 - 1:12PM TONIC DESIGN Colts, Geldings and Entires Class 3 Plate (1000 METRES) 
An open affair with race favourite Flaming Boss stepping up to Class 3 company after just two race starts. I’m running with the Tony Gollan-trained VICTORY POWER to get the job done. After 12 months off the scene, the six-year-old returned to work finishing second in a barrier trial at Doomben, beating home the smart Meet Mr Taylor. First-up, the Snitzel gelding looked good when finishing third behind Shalwa here over 1000m, just running out of condition in the final stages. With that run behind him now, he will strip fitter here and should prove hard to run down this time.

Odds correct as at 7:00AM on 31/10/2019

Matthew Dunn’s three-year-old XANTHUS has returned in great touch and should be there at the finish in this. First-up after a six-month break, he broke through with his maiden win on the Sunshine Coast then followed that up with another victory in three-year-old company at Doomben where he ran 1:09 for the 1200m event. Last start, he found the 1400m trip just a bit far, finishing just behind the placegetters. The Better Than Ready gelding returns to the 1200m journey here and drawn the fence, should prove hard to hold out.

Race 8 - 3:47PM SUEZ RECYCLING & RECOVERY Class 6 Plate (1200 METRES)
Race 8 is a Class 6 over the 1200m journey and TAMBO'S MATE can continue his impressive recent run. The four-year-old has had just the nine career starts and has won five of those, including a last start effort that saw him doing his best work late when getting up on the line ahead of Deep Image and Snitz. Prior to that he was runner-up when resuming at Doomben over the 1110m. He should take benefit from his last start and has drawn to do no work from barrier 1. 
Result (1st - $2.40)

Race 9 - 4:32PM TOMRA OPEN Handicap (1000 METRES)
The sprinters tackle the 1000m journey and TARZAN resumes after a three month spell. The Shaun Kendrick-trained galloper ticks plenty of boxes in this race, despite the hefty impost of 61.5kg. He has won 14 of 35 with three of those coming before his spell. He carted big weights in all of those. He has won three of seven when resuming and comes into this with a trial win at the Sunshine Coast. Luke Tarrant has drawn barrier 5 aboard the son of Drumbeats and with even luck in running he should go very close. 
Result (1st - $6.70)

October 19

Race 7 at Eagle Farm pits some handy types up against one another over the mile and TESTASHADOW can bounce back after being outclassed at Group 3 level in the recent Cameron Handicap (1500m) at Newcastle. The veteran galloper was good prior to that at Eagle Farm when an unlucky 3rd in a similar race to what he lined up in on Saturday and mixed it with some quality runners in Sydney at his runs prior to that. The experienced hoop, Jim Byrne, will look to settle handy to the lead on the son of Testa Rossa and if he can cross over without too many concerns, his mount should be very strong at the business end of the race. 
Result (3rd - $1.90 to Place)

Race 9 - 4:38PM ST RITA'S COLLEGE BENCHMARK 70 Handicap (1200 METRES)
Race 9 shapes as an even betting race and it might be worth sticking with TRAIL OF GLORY, who will be out for the hat-trick of wins when she steps out against the fellow BenchMark 70 gallopers. The Tony Gollan-trained mare is compiling an impressive record, having won five of her 12 career starts and at the most recent of those she ran on very smartly out wide to nail Buffy, while there was a big gap back to the 3rd placegetter. The form out of that race has held up and while she has drawn wide, the race might pan out for her as she likes to get back and there is a solid pace predicted.   
Result (unplaced)

October 12

Race 6 - 3:22PM RAY WHITE ASCOT BENCHMARK 75 Handicap (2200 METRES)
Race 6 is a BenchMark 75 over the 2200m and the progressive Tony Gollan horse, ADVANCE WARNING, can continue to make his mark. The four-year-old has had the nine career starts for two wins and thrived when stepping up in trip last time at Doomben, cruising home to win by almost three lengths from Momentum To Win and Open Road. In that race he settled towards the rear before taking over as they swung for home. Prior to that he had been building up nicely over shorter trips, while his last campaign culminated with a win at Ipswich over the 1700m. He is giving the impression that the further the race is the better at this stage and the wide gate does not hold too many concerns. 
Result (1st - $4.50)

Race 8 - 4:38PM JUICED TV OPEN Handicap (1400 METRES)
Some handy types tackle the 1400m in Race 8 of the day and SCALLOPINI should be hard to beat. The Steven O'Dea-trained galloper has been nothing short of consistent in his career to date, winning seven and placing in another seven out of his 16 starts. He resumed with a narrow win at Eagle Farm before just missing out behind Baccarat Baby in a strong race last time at the same track over the 1200m. He steps up to the 1400m and has won three of five at the trip and was a winner at his only start over the journey at Eagle Farm. He should be nearing his peak at his third run back and he looms as a clear top pick. 
Result (2nd - $1.40 to Place)
