Another huge day of Brisbane Winter Carnival action takes place this weekend and one of the card highlights is the Group 2 Eagle Farm Cup (2200m).
The staying test has attracted a field of just six runners but there are some quality horses lining up.
A slight favourite at $2.80 is defending champion Lights Of Heaven, with stablemate Manighar the next best at $2.90.
The only horse close in betting is last-start winner Moriarty ($3.80) who will be out to continue the strong run for Sydney’s leading trainer Chris Waller.
Others lining up to contest the Eagle Farm Cup include Quintessential ($7.50), Voila Ici ($16) and Zabeelionaire ($26).
#5 Lights Of Heaven $2.80
- Defending champion
- Thrives in the Brisbane winter, won this race and Brisbane Cup last year
- Coming off a solid lead-up run fifth in the Doomben Cup
- Handles wet and likely to get a soft track on Saturday
#1 Manighar $2.90
- Class horse, triple Group 1 winner
- Showed glimpses of return to form with Doomben Cup fourth
- Reasonable wet-track form
- Will benefit from first-up run as will jockey Brad Rawiller
#6 Quintessential $7.50
- Loves Queensland, won Oaks here last year
- Coming off a strong win in the Group 3 Chairman’s Handicap at Eagle Farm
