|Wednesday, December 13, 2023
Eagle Farm will be the destination for Queensland mid-week metropolitan racing this Wednesday afternoon, with a competitive seven-race card set down for decision. Warm weather is forecast for Tuesday and Wednesday, so we expect the track to stay in the perfect Good 4 rating for the whole meeting. The rail will be pushed out to the +7m position for the entire circuit, which will most likely play favourably to on-speed runners. The first race at Eagle Farm is set to jump at 1:37pm AEST. Here are our free Eagle Farm tips for Wednesday, December 13, 2023.
Best Bet at Eagle Farm: Already A Star
Already A Star returned for his second racing preparation in a strong Class 3 Handicap at the Sunshine Coast on November 18, where he finished seventh of 10, but was only beaten 2.7 lengths by Standing Order. The Natalie McCall-trained gelding settled worse than midfield first-up and took ground off the leading pack of runners in the final 200m, suggesting that a step up in distance would be needed second-up. This son of Better Than Ready will get that on Wednesday as he rises to 1400m and drops in grade slightly. The booking of James Orman signals intent from the stable, and with even luck, Already A Star will prove hard to hold out.

Next Best at Eagle Farm: Fly With You
Adam Campton appears to have found the race that will see Fly With You breakthrough for his first win of his career at his fifth start. This four-year-old gelding has finished in the placings at all four starts. Last start, this son of Denman finished third over 1200m at Ipswich but didn’t seem to handle the heavy ground. Stepping up to 1400m for the first time should be seen as a positive for this guy, as he continues to run well but keeps finding one better on the day. From barrier nine, Elione Chaves will push forward and find the lead or settle outside the leader before upping the ante on the home turn to give his rivals something to chase.
