Eagle Farm Tips April 20


Youth Empowerment By The Cage Benchmark 85 Handicap Tips (Race 4)


Eagle Farm Value Bet - Race 4 No. 11 Dark Harmony

The pace situation here is interesting with Chris Munce’s gelding expected to get an easy time of it out in front.

While allocated a wide barrier there is no obvious competition for the lead with the pick having regularly raced from the front including in two of his three starts this prep.

The gelding has faded late on in 1400m contests on his two most recent starts including on a soft 6 track in a Benchmark 68 handicap here earlier this month.

However, the pick has won here in the past including twice in his last prep, most recently when contesting a 1400m Benchmark 80 handicap here in October. 

Chris Munce’s horses have been running well in the main of late with a two-year-old winner at Doomben on Wednesday among his recent runners.

Robbie Dolan’s mount gets in off a nice low weight here and he looks value to improve on his 16% strike-rate (9/55) when teaming up with the Munce stable. 

Community Co Benchmark 88 Handicap Tips (Race 7)


Eagle Farm Best Bet - Race 7 No. 2 Lost In Transit

The four-year-old is a consistent sort having finished in the first three in all ten starts since debuting with a sixth over 1000m at Sunshine Coast in March last year.

Those efforts include five wins with three of those coming in his last prep, including when winning by three lengths over 1000m at Sunshine Coast when winning first up.

The pick showed good progression subsequently including when winning by a length in a track and trip contest on a good 4 surface in October.4

The son of Spieth ended 2023 with a half-length second in a 1400m Benchmark 85 handicap at Sunshine Coast in November.

The drop back in distance is no issue here while the forecast good 4 going is in the gelding’s favour.

While Stuart Kendrick’s representative has a wide alley he looks the most obvious pace angle and is taken to get across from barrier twelve to deliver an all-the-way success.

Eagle Farm Feature Bet - Race 8 No. 6 Nettuno

The gelding showed some good form at Group level as a three-year-old including when runner-up in the Group 3 San Domenico Stakes at Rosehill in August 2022.

Notably the pick’s only win since that effort came when successful by two lengths in the Swiss Ace Plate over 1000m when racing first-up at Sunshine Coast in November.

The four-year-old came home two lengths second when contesting the Listed Magic Millions Falvelon over 1200m at this circuit two starts later.

Tony Gollan’s gelding raced on a good 4 track that day and finished a respectable eighth in a $1,000,000 event at Gold Coast in January on his only subsequent start. 

The selection trialled for this event with a fifth over 1000m at Doomben and that effort should have put him spot on for this contest. 

Barrier eight should pose no issues for Vlad Duric’s mount who is selected to record a first-up victory.

Jones & Co IGA Daybreak Lover (Listed) Tips (Race 9)


Eagle Farm Next Best Bet - Race 9 No. 5 Press Link

Robert Heathcote’s gelding is unbeaten in three starts including when debuting with a narrow margin victory over 1200m at Doomben in November.

The selection returned from a spell with a success on a wet track in a 1110m Benchmark 65 handicap at the same venue early last month. 

The son of Press Statement proved that he is more than effective away from Doomben when maintaining his unbeaten record with a 1200m handicap success at this track.

The pick came home two-and-a-half-lengths clear of his rivals that day and has trialled well with a second over 1000m back at Doomben subsequently.

The four-year-old was forced to race wide throughout at this circuit last time out and he has a good barrier here.

Michael Rodd’s mount shapes as if this step up in distance will suit and he is taken to maintain his unbeaten record returning to a set weights contest.
