After all the festivities of Christmas Day are done and run all eyes turn to action packed day of sport and racing on Boxing Day. The sports enthusiasts day of choice.

Boxing day is the perfect day for sport. You can wake up to the NBA or NFL Christmas day games over breakfast. Turn on the cricket mid morning and hopefully catch the Aussies getting on top of the Melbourne test. Early afternoon pop on Sky Racing or Racing.com and watch a fine day of group racing at Caulfield, Randwick and Eagle Farm.


Tomorrow we will see the Christmas Stakes, Summer Cup and Magic Millions Bernborough Plate all run and won. 

For us our best bet on Boxing Day is in the latter of those, The Bernborough plate, running at Eagle Farm Racecourse over 1600m. 

In a race which has last year's winner Niccanova running we can’t look past the favourite The Harrovian. 

This 7yo gelding by Fastnet Rock has found a new lease of life since moving from Victoria to Queensland and is well worth the $2.45 available. 

In the past 2 years since moving to Queensland the Tony Edmunds trained runner has had 14 starts for 12 wins and 2 placings. Even more impressive, 5 of those wins were in black type races. 

You could argue that the majority of those wins have come from the country tracks like Cairns and Townsville however more recently The Harrovian has had trips to town and won again convincingly including winning by over a length in the listed Tatts Recognition Stakes.

The drop back in weight to 57kgs and top Queensland hoop Brad Stewart booked to ride are all pluses. He has the speed and as shown here in the QLD Newmarket he can sustain long runs to overcome. 

Top Pick For Boxing Day - The Harrovian
