Conditions have been dry in the Sunshine State and with the track expected to play a Good 4 and the rail out in a true position. The boys have dissected the card based on these conditions.
Eagle Farm Race 2 - Volcanic Rock - $2.40
A Sydney horse for the Bott and Waterhouse team heading across the border to compete in what looks to be a midweek Queensland race.
Volcanic Rock has solid form lines against better company than this and with the scratching of Cape Breton looks to have the run of the race here. Money has come for the 2yo and the barrier draw and booking of Craig Williams both positives.
Back Volcanic Rock to win
Eagle Farm Race 4 - Boomtown Lass - $3.50
First up here and has never finished worse than second first up in the past. If she’s ready to go here should be fighting out the finish.
The price on Usmanov is way too short to back considering Boomtown Lass comes in with some good formlines from last prep and the booking of Boss could be the answer.
Back Boomtown Lass to win
Eagle Farm Race 5 - Splintex - $2.70
The boys both think this is the race for Splintex. Jumped poorly in the G1 Doomben Cup but managed to box on well behind Vega One.
Before that finished 1.5l off Eduardo carrying 58.5kgs. Goes down to 57kgs here and drawn barrier 1 and could lead or sit off the pace. His race to decide as the field doesn’t look to have much depth.
Back Splintex to win.
