Eagle Farm Best Bet: Racing Paradise
Desleigh Forster’s five-year-old gelding Racing Paradise was racing in some very good form in early to mid-autumn with five placings and a win from eight starts. The son of Savabeel’s last start was on April 24th over the mile when beaten half a length by Tavion Prince at Doomben, so we expect he will carry plenty of residual fitness for this first-up assignment over 1400m. While this consistent galloper only won once last prep, it did come at this track when he was able to kick clear in the straight, and from barrier one with Mark Du Plessis in the saddle he should be able to do something similar here.
Next Best at Eagle Farm: Gin ‘n’ Bitters
Billy Healy and Jimmy Orman combine in the second leg of the quaddie with five-year-old mare Gin ‘n’ Bitters. The four-time winner ran fifth when first-up on the Kensington track a fortnight ago and now returns home to Brisbane and drops 100m to the 1000m, which is her pet trip (7:4-0-0). Orman has not ridden this classy mare before, but he is riding in top form and strikes at 16% for Healy. Drawn in barrier three, GnB will get all of the favours in the run in this relatively big field and should prove too good.
Eagle Farm Value Bet: Nordicus
Unlike his parents, Nordicus has not been all that hard to catch, winning only two of his 16 career starts. The gelding is regally bred – by Dundeel out of superstar mare Miss Finland – but hasn’t quite lived up to expectations. Formerly with Bjorn Baker in Sydney, Nordicus managed to break the drought on February 25th with a nice win at Wyong which might have been the confidence builder he needed. Now trained by Barry Baldwin on course at Eagle Farm, this five-year-old proved he had some potential with a 3.5-length trial victory, before going down by a narrow margin at the Sunshine Coast behind Superare. Barrier nine will see Taylor Marshall take him back and set up for a strong finish out wide. This is a good race for Nordicus.
