Eagle Farm Tips August 1

TAB LONG MAY WE PLAY QTIS Three-Year-Old Handicap Tips (Race 1)

Eagle Farm Best Bet - Race 1 No. 3 Igor

This Kacy Fogden-trained gelding was massive last start at Ipswich when making a stack of ground from last on the turn at Ipswich.

Jumping sharply in trip from 1200m to 1666m that day, the son of Holy Roman Emperor settled at the rear of the field, rattling home in 34.4s for the last 600m.

Start before that, he was very impressive first-up at the Gold Coast when settling closer to the speed from a good draw.

In the small field of five, Andrew Mallyon takes the ride and from barrier two, can stalk the favourite wherever he goes and launch late as the best bet at Eagle Farm.

TAB LONG MAY WE PLAY QTIS Three-Year-Old Handicap (Race 4)

Eagle Farm Each-Way Bet - Race 4 No. 4 Xerri

Just like his rugby league namesake, this three-year-old has speed to burn and looks to have come back in outstanding order off two very impressive trials.

Given a little squeeze to power away in his latest trial, the Snitzel colt was very impressive in showcasing an instant turn of foot when asked a furlong from home.

Last preparation he was fair when stepping out on debut behind Kisukano despite being well beaten, but broke his maiden with a strong performance second-up at Doomben.

Drawn barrier ten, Andrew Mallyon climbs aboard for the Edmonds stable where he can take a sit and looks an outstanding 1/3 each-way play.

NATIONAL JOCKEYS CELEBRATION DAY Colts, Geldings & Entires No Metro Win Handicap Tips (Race 5)

Eagle Farm Favourite - Race 5 No. 12 Chico Milagro

Backed as if unbeatable last start at Ipswich, this Tony Gollan-trained gelding didn’t run out the 1350m as strong as expected and looks primed to return to the winners circle now stepping back in distance.

After trialling very impressively leading into this campaign, the I Am Invincible three-year-old ran into Roman Aureus first-up at the Gold Coast before breaking his maiden in a five-length demolition at Ipswich.

In his last couple of starts, he has been unlucky finishing on the heels of Euro Belle and Quantico at Eagle Farm, before disappointing at Ipswich as favourite.

Stepping back to 1200m looks a major bonus, and drawn perfectly in barrier five, Jim Byrne can sit on the pace and give him every chance.

RANDWICK TIPS: Best Bets & Full Preview for Royal Randwick

MOUNT FRANKLIN Class 3 Plate Tips (Race 6)

Eagle Farm Next Best Bet - Race 6 No. 14 Euro Belle

A very talented filly out of the Gillian Heinrich yard, the rising four-year-old has been very impressive this preparation and looks well placed to breakthrough for another victory on Saturday.

After chasing Say Haya at Doomben, the daughter of Eurozone dead-heated alongside Quantico at this track over 1200m before chasing Stuttering last-start.

Held up for a run slightly in the straight, James Orman was forced to pull off heels before powering through the line into second, with the race rating identical to the Listed Gai Waterhouse Classic on the same day (Euro Belle: 1-20.17/35.63, Gai Waterhouse Classic: 1-20.02/35.72).

Drawn perfectly in barrier four, James Orman stays aboard for Heinrich where he will land in the gun spot on Euro Belle who's perfectly placed.

BRC MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL Fillies & Mares No Metro Wins Handicap Tips (Race 7)

Eagle Farm Value Bet - Race 7 No. 12 All Shiraz

A inform mare, this daughter of Love Conquers All chased home the very talented Maddi Rocks last start at Ipswich and looks perfectly placed to breakthrough for another victory.

After winning early in her preparation, she has been racing in outstanding order finishing on the heels of Naval Strike, Howwonderfullifeis, Broken Arrows and Maddi Rocks, hitting the line well each time.

Settling towards the rear of the field at Ipswich, the Rex Lipp-trained mare was extremely strong powering through the field, and will only be suited by the long Eagle Farm straight.

Drawn perfectly in barrier three, it will allow Dale Smith to find cover and to unleash her down the straight.

ASCOT GREEN BENCHMARK 72 Handicap Tips (Race 9)

Eagle Farm Roughie - Race 9 No. 10 Our Fun

New South Wales gallopers have been dominating when heading north to escape wet tracks, and it looks a set plan for this Richard and Michael Freedman-trained mare.

After a fantastic last preparation culminating in a fourth-placing behind Primitivo in the Magic Millions Trophy, the rising five-year-old mare battled it out with The Candy Man, Man To Match, Kubis and Black On Gold.

Since returning, the daughter of Dundeel has failed to fire a shot this campaign when striking wet tracks each run, but looks primed to bounce back on top of the ground at Eagle Farm.

Drawn well in barrier seven, there doesn’t look to be much speed engaged in the race on paper, allowing Ryan Maloney to go forward and control the pace.
