Horse Racing Tips & Previews – Eagle Farm | Sat 18th Dec.

Form analyst, SCOTT MCDONELL, previews Saturday’s Eagle Farm meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 9 races. Good luck, punters!

Track Condition: Good 4

Rail Position: Out 5m entire circuit

Always had an opinion of MCCOVEY COVE. He is a smart gelding who missed start first-up and was never a factor. Better from the outing and he can improve.

VILLA VILLEKULLA started favourite and got the prize at Rockhampton last start. Comes into this ready for city class third-up and must include.

BESTIE knuckled down bravely last 200m and got up on line at Toowoomba. He will never stop coming from back in second half and takes holding out.

BELTARIA finished too well winning in town fresh then should have finished closer last start. This looks no harder and a must for exotics.


DOVETAIL DIVA raced on speed and looked winner last start but was claimed last couple of strides. Third-up and ready to find best form.

MOTOMISS comes to town in super form having won three straight on the provincial circuit. She can measure up to city class.

SUNRISE DANCER relished the heavy to win last start. That made it two wins from three starts this prep. Cannot leave out.

AMIRYKAL had perfect ride and finished too well to win at Ipswich last start. She is never far away in her races and a must for first four players.


Liked the way TAMILAIDE got to the line when placed first-up at Ipswich. Better from the run and he gets his chance to return to winners stall.

JETTY chased home and got the prize first-up at Sunshine Coast. Sure to be better from that outing and he can measure up to this field.

AWESOME LAD has been good when placed in both Sydney runs this time in. Comes into this third-up from spell and from inside gate will get all the favours.

BAD BARISTA comes into this ready to find best third-up from spell. Beaten less than two lengths at Ipswich last start. Include.


WAPITI finished too well winning at Sunshine Coast then had chance when placed last start. He looks well placed to return to winners stall.

HUMBOLT CURRENT comes into this third-up from spell. Battled on well at the one pace last start and 2200m will suit.

FASTNET CYCLONE appreciated the step up to this distance last start, but had chance to win. One for the trifecta.

The run of HAPPY GO PLUCKY was better than finishing position suggests at Doomben last start when beaten less than two lengths. Can surprise.


The exciting GYPSY GODDESS beat a similar field to this with ease at Doomben and made it three from three. She will be short but looks best of the day.

Prepared to forget the last start of CABOCHE when met with trouble and had wide run. He can bounce back in this.

POOL PONY chased home Gypsy Goddess when big odds at Doomben last start. Hard to see him turning tables but he can place.

SERGEANT SILVA battled away at the same pace at Doomben last start and will need to improve off that run. May sneak a place.


XERRI raced up on the speed and was too strong at Sunshine Coast last start. Expect he will go forward and make own luck up in first couple and he can win again.

I DID IT AGAIN resumes from spell. Lining up for seven wins on the trot. Comes off strong trial win and he cannot be left out.

QUEEN SWEEPER has won her last two at Sunshine Coast and brings winning form to town. She cannot be left out.

ALEYSA’S DREAM led them up before being claimed final stages first-up at Sunshine Coast. Fitter and will take catching.


FAR TOO EASY resumed with a staggering win on the Gold Coast then went to Doomben and just as impressive. Looks hard to beat.

RHAPSODY ROSE comes into this off two solid wins. Raced on speed and was just too strong in the Mode Plate. Major player.

ME ME LAGARDE covered extra ground but still proved too strong winning at Doomben last start. Can go on with it here.

MISS HIPSTAR improved out to the 1200m when placed in the Mode Plate last start. Has the talent to be right in the mix.


STAMPE comes into this off a couple of solid stakes race placings. Battled on well in the George Moore and will take catching.

TRICKY GAL was luckless in much tougher Group 3 race at Caulfield last start when untested. Is up to this and winning chance.

PROFIT is resuming from spell. Yet to miss a place in any of his four first-up tries. Has a touch of class. Don’t take lightly.

TUMBLER RIDGE fought the race out strongly in the Recognition and just found one better. Third-up and ready to win.


INDIAN DREAMER started favourite first-up but just found them a bit sharp. Gets out to right distance range.

SPOKESMAN finished too well winning at Ipswich two back before battling on polytrack. Better back on the turf.

DUNE FORTY FOUR was strong winning first-up before getting too far back last start. Third-up and can bounce back.

LETHAL WARNING did plenty wrong first-up but still kept coming and not beaten far. Fitter and looks a place chance.
