Eagle Farm Tips Saturday May 14

Looking for Eagle Farm race tips and best bets?  Our QLD form expert previews racing from Eagle Farm Racecourse and gives his top selections.

Here are our Eagle Farm tips for today.


Toowoomba galloper WINSIDE (best odds currently $14 with Palmerbet) ticks enough boxes here to be considered a genuine each-way chance in this contest. Last start, the Sidestep mare made it seven-straight podium finishes when she claimed third prize in a BM90 on a Heavy 8 at Doomben. She ran the trip out, 6 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this field. She has drawn wide here but her early gate speed has her settling mid-field. Larry Cassidy sticks with her here and boasting three wins and four minor placings from eight starts on wet tracks, conditions look ideal for her here. Currently at double-figure odds, she looks well worth an each-way ticket.


Formerly with the Michael Costa stable, DERULO (best odds currently $6 with Palmerbet) has his first start for David Vandyke here and looks well placed to make it a winning one. Last start, the Spill The Beans gelding beat all but one home in the Listed Tails Stakes Hcp over the mile at Doomben. He ran a new personal best that day, covering the trip, 7.1 lengths quicker than benchmark, also the best in this line-up. Ryan Maloney is aboard for the first time and already boasting strong wet track form, the four-year-old looks set for a big finish in this contest.


The Maher and Eustace-trained VERONA (best odds currently $7 with Palmerbet) is the lone filly in this event but looks a genuine chance to give these a fright. Last start, the three-year-old showed plenty of improvement when she took out the Group 3 Frank Packer Plate (2000m) on a Heavy 8 at Randwick. Despite the wet conditions, she still ran a new personal best, covering the trip 8.8 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best here by 3 lengths). She also ran the fastest final 800m to 200m sectionals for the race. Already a Group 3 winner, William Pike sticks with her and with a trouble-free run, she can give this a real shake.
