R1 12.17pm Two-Year-Old Maiden 1200m
BELOSO trialled well and had one handy start before a spell. At first run back was good and looks a top chance here.
SHARP SPEEDO was good on her only start when third in a small field.
CLANG AGAIN is bred to be very good in the wet and trialled okay at Deagon recently.
SELECTIONS: NO10 TAY SWIFT, NO1 BELOSO, NO9 SHARP SPEEDO, NO3 CLANG AGAIN.
VALUE RUNNER: NO3 CLANG AGAIN.
R2 12.52pm Two-Year-Old Maiden 1200m
SHUDA KNOWN BETTER was fourth behind a top filly before a spell and then lost her rider when going forward at next start. No trial but reportedly has had a jump out.
QUEEN CORA trialled very well before only start when third in an Ipswich maiden. Fitter now.
ATTILLA has had four trials, winning the last one a week ago. On home track and is very well bred, so demands respect.
SELECTIONS: NO1 DOUBT DEFYING, NO7 SHUDA KNOWN BETTER, NO8 QUEEN CORA, NO2 ATTILLA.
VALUE RUNNER: NO2 ATTILLA.
R3 1.23pm Maiden Plate 1800m
JAM WITH THE DUKE was third in a maiden on a heavy track two runs back and drops in class for last start failure.
FASSLER started a short priced favourite at last start and was only fair, but a handy effort when fifth in a tougher Doomben race two starts back.
GOTTA GOODIE usually races okay on this track and against this lot has a chance.
SELECTIONS: NO9 LAST MOMENT, NO2 JAM WITH THE DUKE, NO5 FASSLER, NO6 GOTTA GOODIE.
VALUE RUNNER: NO6 GOTTA GOODIE.
R4 1,53pm Maiden Plate 1200m
POLSKIE LADY is from the top stable and trialled well before fair first up run. Has been back to the trials and again has gone okay.
SHAWL had some handy form last time in work and although has not had an official trial is reportedly working well.
BIDZIL is on the comeback trail from a serious injury. She has had two starts back and should be a lot fitter.
SELECTIONS: NO6 UH OH, NO7 POLSKIE LADY, NO9 SHAWL, NO1 BIDZIL.
VALUE RUNNER: NO9 SHAWL.
R5 2.23pm Three-Year-Old Fillies Maiden 1200m
CHOOSE THE MOMENT will be a lot fitter for her first up fourth and she was placed at her three runs before a spell. Looks the obvious danger here.
CAPITAL CITY has been a consistent place-getter since coming from Victoria.
RUBY FIRE was terrible first up at Eagle Farm but a lot of horses are just not handling the new surface there. Give her another chance on previous form last campaign including a placing on a heavy track this course.
SELECTIONS: NO3 OPINIONATED, NO2 CHOOSE THE MOMENT, NO4 CAPITAL CITY, NO5 RUBY FIRE.
VALUE RUNNER: NO5 RUBY FIRE.
R6 2.53pm Class 3 1200m
SKY LIMIT has been racing well in Queensland without regaining his best three-year-old form. Looked like winning at the 250m last time but was in the wrong part of the Eagle Farm straight and got run over. Gets his chance to atone here.
MY COUSIN BOSSY was a good winner two months ago at last start and a repeat performance would see him in the finish here.
KHALEEQ was a lot better last time when second behind a much improved horse at Ipswich. Does handle soft going.
SELECTIONS: NO4 REDSSON, NO3 SKY LIMIT, NO2 MY COUSIN BOSSY, NO7 KHALEEQ.
VALUE RUNNER: NO7 KHALEEQ.
R7 3.23pm Fillies and Mares Class 3 1200m
Forget that FLO JO SNIP went around her past two starts. She has had no luck at all and is suited here.
KATELETTE also had no luck first up and on best form could win this.
STRATA LADY doesn't look well off at the weights but has a touch of class.
SELECTIONS: NO2 QUEEN TARA, NO3 FLO JO SNIP, NO6 KATELETTE, NO1 STRATA LADY.
VALUE RUNNER: NO6 KATELETTE.
R8 3.53pm Class 5 1400m
OLD HABITS has been racing much better than it looks on paper. Came from a mile back last start and should have been right in the finish after having no luck when sixth.
ROMANARMA was terrible last time after having the run of the race on the rails. But usually gets better with racing and should be fitter third up now.
GOOD JOB BRO got home well at Toowoomba last start and is reportedly working very well. He is ready to win.
ROYAL SCRIBE is not racing well since a spell but getting out to a more suitable distance and did trial very well last month.
SELECTIONS: NO1 UMGENI, NO9 OLD HABITS, NO4 ROMANARMA, NO2 GOOD JOB BRO.
VALUERUNNER: NO10 ROYAL SCRIBE.
R9 4.23pm Class 1 1300m
BOUND FOR LOVE is very well bred and loves this track.
ROB ROY is racing well enough to be in the finish here.
ROSE OF WOORIM doesn't win many races but can get home hard if the pace is on as it should be here.
CAVIAR GIRL is resuming here but a nice trial winner and gets in well at the weights after the 3kgs claim.
SELECTIONS: NO1 HALLS CREEK, NO6 BOUND FOR LOVE, NO2 ROB ROY, NO10 ROSE OF WOORIM.
VALUE RUNNER: NO11 CAVIAR GIRL.
