SKY RACING QTIS Mares Class 6 Handicap Tips (Race 2)
Eagle Farm Value Bet - Race 2 No. 3 Splendoronthegrass
After a strong win first-up at Ipswich, Splendoronthegrass was very brave last start in the Listed Just Now and can return to the winners circle over the wide Eagle Farm track.
Transferred to David Vandyke's Sunshine Coast stable prior to this preparation, the former Victorian mare has produced two strong runs for her new camp.
Settling handy in barrier six, the four-year-old daughter of So You Think was brave crossing the line alongside a wall of runners including black type winners Krone and Exhilarates, much stronger form than any other horse in this race.
Although Splendoronthegrass has drawn wider in barrier seven under Stephanie Thornton on Saturday, this may well be a positive after her best runs in Melbourne were when ridden quieter.

Eagle Farm Each-Way Bet - Race 4 No. 6 The Astrologer
Following the same path as stablemate and fellow James Herron owned colt King's Legacy, Astrologer looks primed to run a strong race at odds from a terrific draw.
After receiving no luck behind Shaquero on debut in the Breeders Plate, the two-year-old by Star Turn was once again luckless in the Wyong Magic Millions, climbing over runners' backs in search of a run.
A get back, run on type who boasts a neat turn of foot, Queensland's premier rider Ryan Maloney was on radio earlier this week giving a strong push for Astrologer, stating how he had been booked to ride one of the Snowden's best juveniles at Eagle Farm.
Drawn to land around midfield, the long straight will only suit Astrologer who can break his maiden and stamp himself as a Magic Millions contender on Saturday.
MULLINS LAWYERS GRAND PRIX STAKES Tips (Race 6)
Eagle Farm Roughie - Race 6 No. 10 Dune Forty Five
After three strong runs to begin his career, Dune Forty Five's preparation looms as the perfect set up leading into the Group 3 Grand Prix Stakes over 2200m.
Finally stepping up to 1820m for the first time in his career, the son of Americain was very brave finishing on the heels of highly touted filly Good Soize, sticking on strongly as one of the few horses to survive on speed.
With the blinkers applied that day, the step up in trip suited the three-year-old gelding down to the ground and will only improve the further he goes.
Drawn to land midfield from barrier seven, Justin Huxtable gains the ride aboard Dune Forty Five and facing a group of horses with question marks surrounding their staying credentials, will no doubt be strong at the end at each-way odds.
MAGIC MILLIONS BERNBOROUGH PLATE Tips (Race 7)
Eagle Farm Best Bet - Race 7 No. 4 The Harrovian
After ten wins straight and with Brad Stewart electing to stay aboard after riding four horses in the race last start, north Queensland gelding The Harrovian looks well placed to record yet another victory.
Since taking all before him in north Queensland after arriving from Victoria, the Fastnet Rock gelding has made the strong step up to metropolitan grade since arriving in Brisbane, highlighted by his dominant last start win at Doomben.
Bursting through the pack down the straight, Brad Stewart stated following the race that he will only be better over further and his work through the line indicated that the mile might just be his best trip.
Drawn to land right on speed from barrier one, The Harrovian already boasts a win from his only attempt at Eagle Farm and can continue his winning streak under Brad Stewart.

Eagle Farm Next Best Bet - Race 9 No. 1 Baller
A horse which seems to always find trouble no matter where he draws or what distance he runs, this is the last chance for many punters as he steps out over Eagle Farm.
Following a monstrous finish first-up in his debut for the Chris Waller stable at Doomben, the five-year-old gelding was desperately unlucky at Doomben second-up, struggling for room before once again charging home when getting out late.
Stepping out over the Eagle Farm track for the first time, the High Chaparral gelding gets his final chance to make amends over 1400m where he can settle back and be saved up for one last challenge.
Although he is drawn wide in barrier ten, it will only suit Luke Dittman who can keep Baller out of trouble and come home with one massive run late.
