Race 1 12:15pm MAGIC MILLIONS GRAND Tips

Most of the money has come for Eagles Crag, who owns three wins from five starts. He was too good for them at Benalla last start, and we expect that form to stack up nicely for this company. His odds have been smashed into $2, so there is good market confidence, and he should handle the wet track. 
Seiners Express is the only other runner at single-figure odds.


We are keen on Kapalua Sunset, who scored an incredible seven-length win last start. The Danny O’Brien-trained filly relished the rise in distance and her breeding suggests she won’t be worried about the wet track. She could be heading for bigger places, so we’re happy with the odds available.

We wouldn’t rule out Stalking or Glint of Hope, but they are maiden runners facing a strong last-start winner.

Race 5 2:35pm NEDS CLASSIC Tips

Gunstock has form around some smart types, including finishing third at Flemington last time out. He didn’t have much luck after hitting the line strongly, so the extra distance looks ideal for this race. He scored a strong win at Cranbourne two back, so there is value with his odds.

Gundec ran well to score at Flemington last start, and punters get each-way odds. He’s one to have on your ticket.


Race 2 13:05pm THE STAR MILE Tips

It’s an open field but High Supremacy is the one to beat. He won impressively at Randwick two back and found trouble last time out. He should have finished closer, so we’re prepared to forgive that effort and go again.

Money has also come for New Arrangement, who won’t be worried about the conditions. Both runners should go close.


There is good value with Decent Raine, who scored impressively fresh up before meeting some tough fields in Melbourne. She will need to carry a big weight, but punters should be confident of a top effort at each-way odds.

The early money was with Fangirl for Chris Waller. She is a nice type, so we wouldn’t leave her out of selections.

Eagle Farm

Race 1 12:38pm TAB VENUE MODE C3 HANDICAP Tips

We’re not surprised Ciccina has taken plenty of bets. The Kris Lees-trained mare owns three wins from four starts this preparation, including a half-length win at Gold Coast last start. That form bodes well, and she could continue her winning ways.

Punters should also respect Vendidit and The Dark. They are capable of producing the goods on any given day.

Race 7 4:23pm CLEAR TO WORK ST RITA’S CUP Tips

Georgie’s Pride is a six-time winner from 13 starts, so she is a mare worth following. Dropping to 54kg with Jim Byrne is ideal, so his experience should do her the world of good. After opening at $3.10, most of the money has come her way.

Royal Witness is good enough to cause an upset at double-figure odds. He is a past winner on the track, so keep him safe.



Jaazeb finished second behind Philonize last start, which has since won again in fine fashion. It’s a good form guide for a maiden race, and he has been primed with a trial effort on this track. He shouldn’t take long to break maiden status, especially against this field.

The only danger is Arran Bay, who has been backed in from $13 to $5, so respect the betting push. He won a recent trial by 13 lengths, so keep safe.

Race 5 3:21pm ALLEGION BM68 Tips

Brownie is shooting for her third consecutive win and we don’t think these grades will hold her for very long. She looks to have plenty of ability, as shown when winning by 2.3 lengths at Kilmore last time out as the odds-on favourite. Punters get a better price here, so put her on top.


Race 1 3:36pm HAPPY 70TH REG BARTLE 1MW Tips

We expect Devoted to remain unbeaten after two starts. The Williams-trained gelding won on debut at Northam by a short margin, but he had too much class for that field. William Pike sticks with the son of Xtravagant, and punters get better odds.

Hardly Ever is another debut winner that has been respected in markets. She’s worth a play at the price.
