Eagle Farm Racing Tips For March 7 2020

Brisbane racing heads back to headquarters at Eagle Farm this Saturday with a nine race program awaiting punters.

The rail is in the 6m position and the track is rated a Good 4 currently.

Eagle Farm Best Bet

Race 9 No. 2 Star Of Michelin

It was hard to miss the return of this Stuart Kendrick-trained gelding here on February 1.

Rattling home to just miss as runner-up behind Baroda who was going for a hat-trick of victories, the form has been franked from that event with both Ingear ($1.70 chance in Race 2) and last week, Naval Strike also winning.

He does arrive off a freshen-up/five week gap and staying at seven furlongs, however he did have spaces between runs in his first preparation which worked, so this could be by design.

Big plus here is barrier three this time around, where if Star Of Michelin can settle a few pairs closer in the run, he can take out the last as the best bet at Eagle Farm.

Eagle Farm Next Best Bet

Race 6 No. 7 Penshurst

On an each way basis, this son of Fastnet Rock makes appeal around the odds-on favourite in Quality Seeker.

Prepared by the Matthew Smith yard in Sydney who has a good record when he takes them north, this import who's now in his second Australian campaign resumed with a hard finishing third at Canterbury on February 21.

As is generally the case, many of these ex-European gallopers acclimatize more with that preparation under their belt and from barrier four, he draws for a soft run in transit.

Over an extra 300m that looks ideal now, Penshurst is the fresh horse on the scene to a staying field that lacks quality.

Eagle Farm Value Bet

Race 8 No. 7 Auerbach

This Chris Waller-trained gelding is backing-up from a midfield finish over the Doomben 1350m last Saturday.

Whilst his racing pattern doesn't allow himself to have a great winning strike rate, he rarely puts in a bad run and dropping 5kg with the Handicap conditions, will suit in chasing on a testing seven furlongs at Eagle Farm.

The seven day turnaround isn't completely foreign to this seven-year-old either, with his one attempt on the back-up (December 2018) resulting in a win.

Outside of Emerald Kingdom who's perhaps the obvious but is awfully short, it's a rather open race and Auerbach can certainly be in the mix somewhere at a big price.
