Eagle Farm Tips – July 4
RACE PREVIEWS 🧐
Race 1 – 11:43AM DES LAMBART MEMORIAL Class 3 Plate (1200 METRES)
Second-up here, the Lindsay Hatch-trained FOR MY ANNIE looks poised to bring up win number four. Last preparation saw her record a winning hat-trick before hitting the paddock for six months. Resuming, she had no luck when a fast finishing second behind Tullio at the Gold Coast over 900m on a Heavy 10 that day. She missed the jump and lost ground early, then was hampered in the run home before getting clear. Fitter for that run, the lightly-raced four-year-old is back on top of the ground here and should prove hard to hold out.
Race 3 – 12:53PM WINNING EDGE BENCHMARK 85 Handicap (1200 METRES)
Fourth-up and ready to win, ELIXIR looks ideally-placed to break through for his first win on the Eagle Farm track. Last start, he faced similar company here where he stormed home to beat all but Thy Kingdom Come, beaten a whisker on the line. Here, he faces similar company and has drawn the fence. Justin Huxtable remains aboard and after his claim, the Exceed And Excel gelding will carry the same weight. Eight starts on this track have frustratingly resulted in seven minor placings but he ticks all the boxes here to shake that monkey off his back.
Race 8 – 3:58PM STELLA ARTOIS OPEN Handicap (1840 METRES)
The Chris Waller-trained MANGIONE is four starts into this preparation and looks good value here. Two starts back, the four-year-old proved too good for a Class 6 field here over 1815m on a good track. Then last start, he didn’t handle the heavy conditions at Doomben, finishing just behind the placegetters that day against BM90 company. Here he is back on top of the ground and looks much better placed in this company. Sired by 2013 Melbourne Cup winner, Fiorente, he shows the makings of a good stayer and already a track and trip winner, he looks in the mix again in this event.
