Eagle Farm Tips – February 15
Race 2 – 1:07PM EVENTS @ BRC BENCHMARK 90 Handicap (2200 METRES)
Can the ‘gravy train’ continue? Yet to taste defeat, TORRENS lines up here to face similar opposition to what he defeated last start, and will carry no extra weight in the process. Two starts back, he made it a hat-trick, beating home a BM58 field at Port Macquarie with 60.5kgs on his back. Ballina trainer Ethan Ensby then chanced a huge class rise and entered the three-year-old in a BM90 at the Sunshine Coast. He relished the soft track, the 2200m and destroyed his opposition that day, winning the event by more than two lengths. Same trip, just a different track and if the son of Cox Plate winner (Adelaide) can handle the Farm circuit, he looks the stand-out again and should remain undefeated.
Race 4 – 2:17PM PADDYFEST MARCH 14 QTIS Three-Years-Old Handicap (1000 METRES)
The Kris Lees-trained WANDABAA has been in good touch of late, finishing top-three in four of her five starts this preparation. After finishing sixth at Canterbury in her only unplaced run this time in, she enjoyed a seven-week let-up before heading north where she tackled a Class 3 here over the 1000m sprint. After sitting behind the leader to the turn, she took over at the 200m mark and looked home until grabbed on the line by Emerald Kingdom. She carries less weight here and drawn ideally in gate three, should again enjoy the run of the race and will take beating here.
Race 5 – 2:58PM FAMILY RACEDAY APRIL 4 OPEN Handicap (1400 METRES)
Our winning tip two weeks ago, IMPASSE looks ideally placed again and will take some beating. The Matty Dunn-trained gelding was coming off a first-up second behind Pennino after a six-month break, where he dropped a little in grade to take on a BM85 over 1400m. Missing the start, the Sepoy gelding settled third-last and showing no signs of panic, Robbie Fradd eased her wide on the turn and had him doing his best work over the final 200 metres to win going away from them in the end. Drawn better here in gate four, Fradd remains aboard and should box-seating on settling. A similar effort to last start should see the five-year-old home in this.
