Here are our Eagle Farm tips for today.
Race 4 - 1:23PM CANADIAN CLUB BENCHMARK 78 Handicap (2200 METRES)
Best Value 💰No. 9 BOLD EXECUTIVE $4.00 Bet Now!
Down in the weights here, the Garnett Taylor-trained BOLD EXECUTIVE looks well placed to give this a real shake. Last start, the Top Echelon gelding led from barrier to box in a Three-Year-Old Hcp, here over 2206m. He ran the trip, 7 lengths quicker than benchmark, the best in this field. He also posted the fastest final 400m and 200m sectionals for the event. This is a little harder but he drops 2kgs here and with regular rider Ryan Wiggins suspended, he has the services of the experienced Jim Byrne for the first time. Ideally drawn on the fence, he should have no trouble leading here again and will take beating.
Race 5 - 1:58PM JAMES SQUIRE DAYBREAK LOVER (LISTED) (1400 METRES)
Next Best 🥈No. 2 MASS DESTRUCTION $4.40 Bet Now!
The Tony Gollan-trained MASS DESTRUCTION is fourth-up here and in the small field, looks poised to strike. Last start, the Spirit Of Boom gelding wasn’t too far away when finishing third in a Three-Year-Old Hcp behind Tycoon Evie, here over 1200m. He ran his last 600m, 5 lengths quicker than benchmark that day, just 2 lengths slower than Wolf Moon who won his last start at the Sunshine Coast. Michael Rodd takes the reins for the first time today and from gate five, he maps to settle behind the early pace. A winner when fourth-up last preparation and a track and distance winner as well, he looks right up to this contest.
Race 8 - 4:02PM TAB ASCOT HANDICAP (LISTED) (1000 METRES)
Best Bet 🏆No. 8 LE PALMIER $4.50 Bet Now!
Coming off a first-up win, LE PALMIER has a second-up record just as impressive and looks ideally placed here to make it back-to-back victories. The Spirit Of Boom gelding had it on a platter last start and he took full advantage of the situation. Ridden a treat by Jim Byrne, he sat just behind the pace and timing his run to perfection, Byrne drove him home to get there right on the line. He ran the trip 5.5 lengths quicker than benchmark, the second best here behind Vega One (who is resuming from almost a year off the scene). Drawn in gate four again, Byrne gets the opportunity to run a similar race here and despite being up in grade, should still be considered a winning chance. One of our blackbookers from two weeks back, he is two from three when second-up and two from three at the track and trip. He will give us a good sight for our money.
