Eagle Farm Best Bets & Value Tips For Saturday, October 5

Eagle Farm stages a nine race program from Brisbane this Saturday with the $150,000 Spring Cup feature coming up in Race 8.

The track is currently rated at a Good 4 and warm conditions are expected.

Eagle Farm Best Bet

Race 3 No. 2 Scallopini

Five-year-old gelding from the strong local stable of Steven O'Dea that is quietly putting together a tidy record of seven wins from fifteen career starts including a first-up victory over this track and trip on September 7.

Never demolishes a field but consistently just knows where the post is and given the crawling nature of the tempo he faced fresh where the leader had every favor, it was a stronger victory than the end margin suggested.

There is more depth to this but he is still improving and has the benefit of a strong track record where barring an unlucky runner-up finish on September 7, he's won every other attempt.

Deploy will try and break their hearts up front but he's been vulnerable late in proceedings for a while now and Scallopini can finish over the top of him.

Eagle Farm Next Best Bet

Race 9 No. 5 Langhro

Another Steven O'Dea prepared galloper and this son of Lonhro is aiming for a winning hat-trick in the last race of the card.

There's a few more variables here in that he'll have to run out seven furlongs and also tackle a bigger circuit, however it's impossible to fault the way he's returned and did have enough in hand at Doomben over 1350m on September 14.

Under the set weights conditions, he's still well in and meets a main threat in Enterprise Prince 2.5kg better off from that last clash whilst Auerbach who's the best weighted horse from that event, has drawn out and will need favors.

Langhro makes his own luck up front and will be the one to run down.

Eagle Farm Best Each Way

Race 8 No. 7 Outraged

This honest and fit veteran from the astute Kelly Schweida yard has been ticking over well all campaign and back in on the minimum with senior hoop Jim Byrne to steer, is well placed in the $150,000 Spring Cup.

He returned to winning form on August 24 at the Gold Coast over 2200m when reeling in the consistent Boom Boom Epic late before unsuitably coming back down in trip at his last two attempts, potentially with this race in mind.

There's some contenders in this field that admittedly shade him on class although the two specific culprits in that regard via Winning Ways and Kubis, do have to carry 5kg more for this staying affair.

Draws for a soft run in transit and at a double figure quote, he can give a good sight.

Sticking with the consistent Scallopini to go on with it, despite the added depth to the small field.

Langhro will look to make every post a winner in the last under Michael Cahill.

Outraged has good each way claims in the main race.
