Horse Racing Tips

Eagle Farm Tips & Previews, Saturday 18th December

The build up towards the Magic Millions in just under a month continues as we get set for the best bets on a nine-race card from Eagle Farm.

The Magic Millions event in the Gold Coast creeps closer with host of lead-up races set to be run at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

The BetDeluxe racing crew is all hands on deck to get ready for another set of best bets.

Eagle Farm Race 3

#5 Tamilaide

Absolutely licking the lips to get stuck into backing Tamilaide after a very good first-up run when drifting in the market.

The four-year-old gelding trained by Les Kelly went from $3.3 to $4.2 in what was clearly a big fitness run to get him ready for an assault over 1400 metres second-up. 

And here we are; the perfect barrier and a dry track.

He will find himself landing in an ideal spot, hopefully, one off the fence, so he can be in a clear galloping room at the top of the straight. 

Samantha Collett knows the horse well having ridden him last start and will know exactly when to press the button to get this horse sprinting at the right time. 

Suggested Bet: Tamilaide win at $2.10

eagle farm race 4

#3 tears of love

A smaller field, a better jockey, and a better barrier should give this galloper the ultimate chance in this race.

He gets the services of Samantha Collett as well as barrier two, which should see him find the front without burning too much energy in the lead. 

The horse is fit and had a big platform to able to make the most out this galloper.  

Suggested Bet: Tears Of Love each-way at $5 the win and $2 the place. 

Suggested Exotic: Quinella 1 & 3

Eagle farm Race 7

#5 rhapsody rose

Rhapsody Rose strikes a race that can easily notch up a third win in a row.

The Chris Munce-trained three-year-old filly has together two good runs of late with the most recent of those being a winning effort after drawing wide and press towards the lead. 

This race looks to shape in a much kinder manner than a fortnight ago. 

Ryan Maloney will not have to use too much petrol from the barrier and he can save the supreme effort for late in the home straight. 

The other major factor that enhances her chances is the fact she has had a winning run at the course meaning she can clearly handle the corners and surface, which is a huge for a juvenile galloper.

Suggested Bet: Rhapsody Rose win at $3.3

#9 Profit

Hopefully we live up to his namesake on the day, but Profit can definitely produce a winning run when resuming from a spell.

He has two wins and two placings from four first-up attempts highlighting how well he goes when racing fresh. 

The two trials leading into this resuming run have been enough to have him screwed down to run well enough to be winning a race of this calibre. 

He is already winner over 1400 metres first-up having done so last preparation. 

Ticks the boxes here and we can back him each-way with confidence. 

Suggested Bet: Profit each-way at $6.5 the win and $2.35 the place.

Suggested Exotic: Boxed Trifecta – 3, 9, 10
