Race 1 - 11:53am
QTIS 3yo Maiden
will strip fitter for one run back from a long spell and looks suited here with
the blinkers on for the first time. Hearts Denied will also be fitter for
recent racing and has the successful combination of trainer Robert Heathcote
and jockey Robbie Fradd on his side. Kusama is on the improve with a last start
second in a 1200m Eagle Farm Maiden and Angus The Black has been placed at his
last two starts in Maiden class at Doomben and Eagle Farm and has the blinkers
back on, but has plenty of weight to carry from an awkward draw.

Race 2 - 12:28pm
Seeker is racing in outstanding form over 2200m with wins at his last two
starts at Eagle Farm and even though he is climbing up in the weights, is still
the one to beat with apprentice Stephanie Thornton’s 1.5kg claim to help. Lucky
Jackson is the winner of his last two starts at the Sunshine Coast over 1600m
and has earned his chance on the Saturday circuit. Ilwendo is a two times
winner over 2200m and will appreciate the drop back in class and Boom Boom Epic
has shown some improvement as he has been stepping up in distance this preparation.

Race 3 - 1:07pm
Ridge was a winner two starts back over 1300m at Eagle Farm and was then beaten
as favourite when third over 1400m at Eagle Farm again but gets his chance to atone
with the blinkers going on. Mishani Epic scored an upset win at huge odds in
the same race as Tumbler Ridge and a repeat performance can see him get a share
of the prizemoney again. First starter Rory’s Reward was an impressive recent
Sunshine Coast barrier trial winner and the betting will be the best guide and
Papaya broke through for her Maiden win at Eagle Farm last start and gets her
chance on the Saturday circuit.

Race 4 - 1:47pm
Sam has been runner up at his last two starts at the Gold Coast and the
Sunshine Coast as the favourite but gets another chance with the blinkers going
on again. Kennedy Terrace also has the blinkers going back on following his
latest fourth in a 1200m Doomben Maiden on a heavy track. Adelase has been knocking
on the door for her Maiden win with placings at her last two starts at the
Sunshine Coast and Doomben and Blackboots would have gained a lot of experience
from her debut second in a 1350m Doomben Maiden on March 4.

Race 5 - 2:27pm
Class 3 Plate
Rock arrived at huge odds in a 1600m Eagle Farm Class 2 Handicap last start and
a repeat performance can see him in the winner’s circle again. Watch The Cat has
drawn out a bit but still strips as one of the top chances coming off a last
start win in a 1500m Eagle Farm Class 3 Plate. Consular has been racing
consistently with a win and two placings over slightly longer distances and is
not the worst and King Mombassa will get the run of the race from the inside gate.

Race 6 - 3:07pm
Gollan trained Niedorp has always shown plenty of potential and has raced in
much harder company than this and looks the one to beat. The filly is having
her first run back after finishing fourth in the Group 3 Red Roses Stakes (1100m)
at Flemington during the 2019 Melbourne Cup Carnival. Hollaback Girl has been
placed at he last two starts at Eagle Farm and Doomben but has drawn awkwardly.
No Doubt Acracker has also drawn a double digit barrier but had solid form
before a break and Tapa will get the run of the race from the rails draw.
5 Units Niedorp
Race 7 - 3:47pm
Glory ran a mighty race to finish third in the QTIS 3yo Jewel (1200m) at the
Gold Coast and looks the goods coming back to this class. Bold Style goes up
sharply in the weights for his win in a 1000m Eagle Farm 3yo Handicap but still
has to be considered as one of the major players. Jeweliana will strip fitter
for her first up second at the Gold Coast and Flame Princess is having her
first run back since winning over 1600m at Eagle Farm on Melbourne Cup Day last
2 Units Oh Five Glory
Race 8 - 4:23pm
In streeted his rivals in a 1500m Eagle Farm Handicap last start and looks the
one to beat again. Magnufighter was rewarded for his consistency with a win
over 1800m at the Gold Coast and is dropping back in distance here. Shogun Sun
is on the improve with a last start second to Get Stuck In and Plitvice has
very good form in restricted grade and is down in the weights.
3 Units Get Stuck In
Race 9 - 5:02pm
Vinnie was narrowly beaten this class and distance last start at Eagle Farm and
gets his chance to go one better here. Moonshine Lady is stepping up in class as
she chases a hat trick after wins at the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast and
has to be considered. Light Up The Room is resuming and has won first up in the
past and Langhro can show some improvement second up from a break.
