The feature event for the fillies in Queensland takes place with the Queensland Oaks to run and won this weekend.
The Wizard of Odds has gone through the card at Eagle Farm to provide us with the best bets.
Eagle Farm Race 2
#9 Volcanic Rock
Volcanic Rock returned with a laudable first-up effort over 1300 metres at Rosehill last start.
The two-year-old gelding attempted to lead all the way when resuming from a 161-day spell and did a a fantastic job to battle away for third.
He was only beaten by just under a length and will derive a big fitness benefit from that resuming effort.
Looks to get complete control of the front in this race and Craig Williams has been booked to guide him around the Eagle Farm track.
Step up to 1500 metres is ideal and he will make his own luck out in front.
Suggested Bet: Volcanic Rock win at $2.5
Eagle Farm Race 5
This is arguably the easiest race Splitnex has competed in for a while and he gets a massive chance to make it career victory number seven.
Loved his effort in the Doomben 10,000 back on May 15 when running sixth to freak front-runner Eduardo.
He was only one-and-a-half lengths away from the winner that day and that form is the way to go here.
Josh Parr should able to afford him a trouble free run from barrier one with this sprinter’s ability to score up and settle on the pace.
Suggested Bet: Splintex win at $2.6
Suggested Exotic: – Trifecta 1/ 4, 5, 8/ 4, 5, 7, 8
Eagle Farm race 7
She may not be the best horse in the race but Fabric gets a much kinder set-up than what she had to deal with last start.
She is a mare that loves good ground and she copped a slightly rain-effected track last start which hindered her chances.
The Danny O’Brien-trained galloper did a good job to stick on for fourth and we should see her improve back on top of the ground.
Her win at Morphettville two starts is the type of horse we should see in this race.
Craig Williams will give her the run of the race from barrier six and at double figure odds she is definitely worth an each-way play.
Suggested Bets: Fabric each-way at $14 the win and $4 the place.
Suggested Exotic: – Quinella 1 & 6
Eagle Farm race 8
#6 Grace and Harmony
Going with James McDonald and Chris Waller to make it two three-year-old Group 1 staying contest victories in a week.
We landed the cash wth Kukeracha in the QLD Derby and Grace and Harmony looks set to repeat the feats of her stablemate.
She drew wide in The Roses after starting a $3.8 elect and rattled home to finish sixth.
The three-year-old filly was beaten by nearly four lengths but McDonald effectively conceded the race by restraining her at the start.
From barrier three she will much closer to the leaders and the rise in distance to 2200 metres looks perfect.
Suggested Bet: Grace and Harmony each-way at $5 the win and $2 the place.
Suggested Exotic: Boxed Trifecta – 1, 3, 6, 8
Eagle Farm Race 9
Kisukano had been bursting at the seams for a victory and finally broke through last start.
The three-year-old filly from the Michael Nolan stable has had a wretched time of it this preparation in unsuitable races that have seen either carry too much weight or draw terrible barriers.
She got the stars to align for her a fortnight ago after darting clear to win a set weights and penalties race at Doomben.
Mark Du Plessis takes the ride off Kerrin McEvoy which is not the most ideal situation but from barrier seven the instructions should be simple; jump cleanly, be positive and find some cover.
If that eventuates she should be able to make it two wins in a row.
Suggested Bet: Kisukano win at $3.9
