Eagle Farm Race Fields & Program – Saturday March 3, 2012

While much of the attention this weekend will be focused on Australian Guineas Day at Flemington and Sydney’s Group race card at Rosehill, Eagle Farm Racecourse in Brisbane is also set to host a top day’s racing headlined by a double-shot of black-type action.

Racing at the Tattersall’s Racing Club at Eagle Farm this Saturday March 3 is due to get underway at 11:30am with the $50,000 Hamilton Hotel QTIS 2YO’s Handicap (1200m), a smart field of promising youngsters to face off for the lucrative QTIS600 bonuses.

It is a bumper line-up of nine races running at the meeting due to the addition of the $100,000 Listed Falvelon Handicap (1200m), rescheduled after last Saturday’s Eagle Farm race day was a wash-out.

The 2012 Falvelon Handicap will now run as Eagle Farm Race 5 at 2:10pm this Saturday, the field featuring 11 exciting sprinters.

Two gallopers are currently installed at the top of the Falvelon Handicap odds at Luxbet with the now Toby Edmonds-trained Redoute’s Choice five-year-old Essington, a stakes winner when under the preparation of Darryl Hansen, and John Thompson’s last-start winner by 3.5 lengths at the track and distance Mr Armstrong paying $4 each.

Other early fancies in the feature include Tony Gollan’s consistent Sequalo mare Cariad ($7 Luxbet), local six-year-old The Sixties ($8.50 Luxbet) coming off a second to Mr Armstrong and the Brian Smith-trained #6 General Purple ($9.50 Luxbet) who was another first-up winner over 1200-metres at the Farm from Feb 11.

Following the Falvelon Luxbet punters are advised to keep a close eye on Eagle Farm Race 6 – the $50,000 Southbank Insurance Brokers Handicap (1000m) at 2:50pm.

While seemingly a low-key race it will be host to the return of Norm Hilton’s Toowoomba galloper Bold Glance who resumes after a lengthy spell.

Last seen finishing ninth to Sincero in the Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) in June, Sequalo gelding Bold Glance earlier enjoyed lucky during last year’s Sydney Autumn Racing Carnival when finishing third behind Sacred Choice in the Group 1 Doncaster Mile (1600m) at Randwick.

The now six-year-old is preparing for a second shot at the $1 million Doncaster Mile Handicap, to run this year at the Royal on April 21.

Out for so long, Bold Glance is only rated a $101 roughie in the futures 2012 Doncaster Mile odds at Luxbet which are led by Atlantic Jewel ($6).

“He’s come back bigger and stronger than ever,” Hilton said of Bold Glance.

“I think you’ll see a better horse this campaign.

“He’s beefed up and should carry weight better this time in.”

The other headline event at Eagle Farm on Saturday will run as Race 8 at 4:10pm when the $80,000 Tattersall’s Members’ Cup (1600m) takes place.

Following the early scratching of #14 Lemieux, the 2012 Members’ Cup field is down to 15 gallopers with the Luxbet markets led by $3.90 favourite Star Of Octagonal.

Todd Howlett’s Octagonal five-year-old has been in great form throughout the summer starting with their first-up third behind Joe Pride’s exciting sprinter Rain Affair in the Listed Carrington Stakes (1100m) at Warwick Farm.

They were last seen putting one and a half lengths on Praecido to win the Rosehill Gardens Handicap (1500m) on a Slow track on February 11.

There are three other runners under $10 in the betting with Encosta De Lago seven-year-old Mystical Grey ($5 Luxbet), Rob Heathcote’s consistent mare Tomboy ($5.50) vying for her third straight win and the Pat Duff-trained Sunshine Coast Cup winner Steel Zip ($9 Luxbet).
