R1 12.43pm WWW.BRC.COM.AU QTIS THREE-YEARS-OLD BENCHMARK 65 HANDICAP 1350m
DISTORTION won stylishly first-up at the Gold Coast and has scope for further improvement. She also has some soft track credentials, is well-weighted and drawn perfectly.
VIDARR opened his account with a gutsy win at the Sunshine Coast. Importantly, that win was on a wet track, so he must be respected.
SELECTIONS: NO3 RED SCARLET, NO8 DISTORTION, NO4 VIDARR.
VALUE RUNNER: NO 4 VIDARR.
R2 1.18pm COCA COLA CLASS 4 HANDICAP 1650m
ROCK ON IVY signalled last start she was ready to win when she hit the line strongly to finish third at this track and trip. Although she's yet to win in the wet, she's been placed many times and gets in well after Josh Oliver's claim, which will help to offset the tricky outside alley.
RICH REWARD ran well to finish third at the Gold Coast last start. If the predicted rain arrives, her prospects will soar.
KINCAPLE CHIEF ran a much better race last time in blinkers and is another who will enjoy a rain-affected track, with two wins on soft going to his credit.
BUTCHER BLUE has won two out of his three runs this campaign and gets a nice weight drop from a perfect draw.
SELECTIONS: NO2 ROCK ON IVY, NO6 RICH REWARD, NO1 KINCAPLE CHIEF, NO4 BUTCHER BLUE.
VALUE RUNNER: NO6 RICH REWARD.
R3 1.55pm JAMES BOAGS MAIDEN PLATE 1350m
SCENSAY has blinkers on and is coming off a second at the Gold Coast to Hi Harry who, next time out, was runner-up in the race won by Balboa Rocks last Saturday.
HUSSON BOOTS was a bit unlucky when fourth first up at the Sunshine Coast. She's bred to handle the wet, being by Husson.
There's nothing wrong with the form of CLEVER BLAZE, who was runner-up here a fortnight ago and will appreciate the step up to 1350m.
SELECTIONS: NO 14 MEADOW, NO4 SCENSAY, NO13 HUSSON BOOTS, NO12 CLEVER BLAZE.
VALUE RUNNER: NO4 SCENSAY.
R4 2.35pm CANADIAN CLUB MELBOURNE CUP DAY C,G&E BENCHMARK 70 HANDICAP 1050m
TYCOON ACE was runner-up at the Sunshine Coast first up and the winner of that race, Alpen Rose, ran well at Eagle Farm last Saturday.
THOMAS THE TANK has been struggling lately but this is the easiest race he's contested for a while and he's a proven performer on wet tracks. He should zoom across from his wide gate and will take plenty of catching.
ALI MOUNTAIN is drawn gate one and his ability to handle wet tracks brings him right into contention.
SELECTIONS: NO7 GRACIDA, NO2 TYCOON ACE, NO4 THOMAS THE TANK, NO6 ALI MOUNTAIN.
VALUE RUNNER: NO6 ALI MOUNTAIN.
R5 3.10pm UBET FILLIES & MARES CLASS 3 HANDICAP 1350m
The wetter the better for WIGGLE WIGGLE who won last time out on a bog track at the Gold Coast. Although she's drawn out, she'll roll forward and give another great sight.
RED FUTURE hasn't been setting the world on fire this campaign but after two runs back she should be nearing peak fitness and trainer Tony Sears has put the blinkers back on, which is a good sign. It's worth remembering she ran third to subsequent Roses winner Kebede this track and trip last prep.
If there's a downpour then add FLEUR D'ORAGE (Best Roughie) to all your multiples. She's three from three on heavy tracks.
SELECTIONS: NO2 LIGHT SHOWS, NO5 WIGGLE WIGGLE, NO4 RED FUTURE, NO7 FLEUR D'ORAGE.
VALUE RUNNER: NO7 FLEUR D'ORAGE.
R6 3.45pm CHRISTMAS FUNCTIONS @ BRC COLTS, GELDINGS & ENTIRES CLASS 3 HANDICAP 1350m
SELECTIONS: NO1 DANDY ONE, NO7 THE UMBRELLA MAN, NO3 SAGAMAMA, NO9 NEARCTIC CHILLER.
VALUE RUNNER: NO9 NEARCTIC CHILLER.
R7 4.20pm CLEGG MEDIA 20TH ANNIVERSARY FILLIES AND MARES BENCHMARK 70 HANDICAP 1050m
HONEY HOLT creates plenty of interest. She's first-up after nearly a year off but trainer Tony Sears has booked champion jockey Damian Browne, which is a lead in itself. This mare showed last time in that she's up to Saturday grade and she excels on wet tracks.
What you see is what you get with KHALEESI. She jumps and runs and has only been beaten once on a rain-affected track.
ONE IN ONE OUT had a confidence-boosting win last time at the Sunshine Coast. Jockey Luke Tarrant has great options from gate four.
SELECTIONS: NO1 ABRACADASH, NO6 HONEY HOLT, NO7 KHALEESI, NO8 ONE IN ONE OUT.
VALUE RUNNER: NO8 ONE IN ONE OUT.
R8 5.00pm VEUVE SOCIETY CLASS 2 HANDICAP 1200m
