Racing is at Eagle Farm on Saturday June 22 for a nine race programme that includes the Group 1 Tatts Tiara (1400m). 

We have looked through the fields and picked out the best three roughies to back for the day, each-way. 

Race 4 - 12:55PM STELLA ARTOIS 3YO Plate (1400 METRES)
Race 4 at Eagle Farm is for the three-year-olds and the short priced favourite in the race is Vega One. One that can trouble the hotpot is USMANOV, who was a terrific all the way winner at Doomben last time in an easier affair. The Toby Edmonds-trained galloper has had three runs this time in and missed out when 3rd in a strong Class 1 at Scone back on May 10 before dominating his rivals at his latest. The son of Choisir is likely to push forward from the draw and is a chance to enjoy a cheap time of it in front. He has had one start over the distance for a win and is the one they have to run down. 

The feature is the Tatts Tiara for the fillies and mares and PRINCESS POSH gets her chance to break through at the highest level. The Kris Lees-trained galloper has placed twice in Group 1 races this preparation. She worked home very nicely to finish runner-up behind The Bostonian at her last start, which was in the Kingsford Smith Cup (1300m) and earlier on she was an excellent 3rd in the Coolmore Classic (1500m) behind Dixie Blossoms. Those runs were punctuated by some luckless efforts in Sydney. She will get back from the gate but there looks to be a stack of pace ahead of her. That will play into her ability to run some slick sectionals later on. She represents value at the $17.

We close out with the Group 3 Healy Stakes and I am keen on ALASSIO at her first run back in over three months. The Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott-trained galloper dropped out of it in the Coolmore Classic at her last start but may have been at the end of her tether that day and didn't seem to appreciate the Heavy track. Prior to the break she claimed the Guy Walter Stakes (1400m) ahead of Dixie Blossoms. Her first up form has been excellent in the past, winning two of three. She has had the benefit of a trial in the lead up to this and can make her presence felt at the each-way quote.
