Form analyst, SCOTT MCDONELL, previews Wednesday’s Eagle Farm meeting, with horse racing tips and analysis for all 8 races. Good luck, punters!

Track Condition: Soft 5

Rail Position: Out 9m entire circuit

CHARM BRACELET gets a nice maiden to finally breakthrough for a win. Drawn to get the ideal run in transit and she looks the one to beat.

SHE’S AN EAGLE resumes from spell. She is yet to run a bad race in any of her four starts and recent trial should have her ready for this.

SPILL QUEEN comes into this ready third-up from spell. She has not been beaten all that far in both runs back and from ideal barrier she gets her chance.

YESMEENA should have won at Scone first-up from spell when hampered final stages. Strips fitter and she will get her chance last 200m.


FRONTMAN resumes from spell. Two solid Victorian runs at first prep including a close second at Sandown on debut. Drawn ideally and this looks right race for him.

KIPCHOGE led them up for a long way at Doomben first-up and was only claimed final stages then he was not beaten all that far last start. If he gets a cheap lead he will take catching.

VANTAN EXPRESS fought the race out tenaciously here on debut and held on for solid placing. He will be better from the race experience and would not leave out of place chances again.

MOONSHINER was sent out favourite at Sunshine Coast first-up but after racing up on the speed fitness told last 200m and tired. Better from the outing and will be in this for a long way.


ALIGNMENT was sent out favourite here first-up from spell and after racing on the speed was headed final stages. Drawn to drive through and sit on the speed again and can win this.

SOKUDO resumes in new stable. He has been placed in three of his four first-up tries and would not leave him out of place chances.

FLYING EUROS chimed in at the right time and sprinted clear for tough win at Grafton last start. That was well deserved win and he can go on with it here.

IRISH THUNDER looked little bit unlucky not to have finished little closer in the small field here first-up. Strips fitter and with ounce of luck can surprise these.


DUBAI TYCOON comes into this third-up from spell. He has not flattered in his two runs back but in saying that has not been too far away. This right race and going to have something each way.

JAY JAY D’OR was beaten just on 2 lengths here two starts back before one paced effort last start. Looking for him to bounce back in this field.

SAFADO was placed in town in Sydney two starts back then did not finish the race off at Kembla Grange. This looks little easier and would not leave out of place chances.

BONAPARTE has been racing in consistent form having not been beaten all that far in last couple. Drawn to get the perfect run in transit and he will be right in the mix.


DUNE FORTY FIVE demolished them in maiden company at Gold Coast first-up from spell. He will be better from the run and can measure up to these.

LINTHORPE LAD sat on the speed at Ipswich last start before taking over straightening and proving too strong last 200m. Makes own luck rolling forward and takes catching.

DESIGNS comes up from Victoria for Queensland debut. Took no part after blowing start last start but her previous form down south good enough to win this.

FORTIFIED comes into this ready third-up from spell. Placed in both runs leading into this and from perfect barrier he should get perfect run.


SAKURA STAR was dominant at Ipswich two starts back then she was placed behind the smart Georgie’s Pride here last start. Racing in super form and she looks tough to beat.

HIDDEN HAIL resumes from spell. Raced in consistent form when last in work. Comes off a strong Doomben trial win and looks ready for first-up tilt.

SPIRIT HOUSE should have finished a touch closer at Ipswich last start when held-up from the corner. Barrier a concern but she can sneak into a place with right run.

BOLD HUNTER resumes from spell. He has the speed to drive through and sit up on the pace from his inside gate and if he can find the front may take some catching.


PIZONIE comes into this ready third-up from spell and he was not disgraced in Listed company last start. Drawn to get the perfect run in easier company here and he goes on top.

WEBOUGHTAZOU resumes. He has won two of his four first-up starts and raced in better races last time in work. Drawn touch awkwardly but would respect fresh.

DESERT MAN jumped to the front and held on for all the way win at Gold Coast first-up from spell. Strips fitter and he will be up front for a long way.

BLUE ODYSSEY strung together a couple of clear wins before fading into minor spot at Ipswich last start. He makes his own luck sitting in first couple and would not dismiss.


Really like WOWSERS to finish the program with a win. Been close up in all four starts leading into this and although drawn touch awkwardly is top pick.

DESIGNS comes up from Victoria for Queensland debut. Took no part after blowing start last start but her previous form down south good enough to win this.

TOP ORDER won by a big space at Sunshine Coast two starts back then he worked home soundly when placed in small field last start. Will get ideal run and a must for place chances.

QUEEN LEAR showed a nice turn-of-hoof to win at Dalby last start. Going to need an ounce of luck from wide gate but in winning form and a must for multiples.
