What Eagle Farm Races
Where Eagle Farm Racecourse – 230 Lancaster Road, Ascot QLD 4007
When Saturday, November 6, 2021
First Race 12:45pm AEST

Eagle Farm is set to host yet another meeting on Saturday, with just the eight races set to be run and won, and HorseBetting’s Queensland form analyst brings you his best bets and quaddie numbers for the day. The track is rated a Good 4 and the rail is out 8m for the entire course – 4m less than what it was at for Tuesday’s Melbourne Cup Day meeting. The opener is scheduled to start at 12:45pm AEST.

Eagle Farm Best Bet – Go Wandji

If we are brutally honest, it is a very average meeting at Eagle Farm on Saturday, with just 75 acceptors across the eight races, so with a number of small fields, there isn’t much value to be had. In the second race of the afternoon, Go Wandji looks to be a living, breathing certainty should he replicate his last-start win at Doomben. The Tom Dougall-trained four-year-old has only had six starts, winning four of those by big spaces. In those four starts, the son of Wandjina has won by a combined margin of 14.3 lengths, including a dominant 4.5-length romp in metropolitan grade last time out. At the start prior, Go Wandji was defeated at Warwick, and while that doesn’t sound all that flash, he was beaten by Festival Prince, who will go around at Toowoomba on Saturday night at Winx-like odds. Larry Cassidy stays on board from barrier three, so with even luck it should be all over, red rover.

Next Best at Eagle Farm – Rayjen

There is a little bit more meat on the bone here with Rob Heathcote’s filly Rayjen at the $2.30 quote after a good return at Doomben on October 23. The three-year-old daughter of So You Think won on debut in a race that has proved to be a good form reference, before then getting within half a length of Hinged over 1350m in just her second start. First-up over 1200m this time in, Rayjen just couldn’t really go with the speedy Single Dizire early and ultimately knocked up late to run third, a little over a length off the winner, so she should take plenty of benefit out of that, while the rise to 1400m is going to suit her down to the ground. Taylor Marshall takes over the reins from Leah Kilner, which we see as a plus, while in this race from barrier four, Rayjen should be able to get it her own way out in front and take some serious catching. Her form jumps off the page.

Best Value at Eagle Farm – Royal Witness

In the final race of the day, we get the biggest field and the most competitive race, so we are shopping a bit of value with Royal Witness at the $16 odds. The Toby & Trent Edmonds-trained six-year-old has been consistent this campaign, running third and second respectively at his past two starts in Open Quality races, so he should relish the easier competition in a Benchmark 85. While the son of Star Witness does drop a few grades, the handicapper hasn’t missed him, as he rises to 59kg. Although all six of Royal Witness’ wins have been over 1000m, he showed last time at 1200m that the extra trip isn’t too much of an issue. Drawn wide for Brad Stewart in barrier 12, he will most likely get back and be running on, but there is plenty of speed, so we expect a few to stop. Royal Witness’ last win was in July last year, so it has been a while between drinks, but we are confident Saturday can be the day he wins again.
