Brisbane’s Eagle Farm Racecourse is host to the 2013-14 season’s final Group 1 race meeting this Saturday with Tattersall’s Tiara Day 2014 lighting up the track, the Races.com.au team’s best bets of the day found below.
Racing kicks off at 12:10pm and goes through until Race 8 at 4:15pm when the $100,000 Listed Centenary Classic Mercedes Benz Open Mile (1600m) takes place.
The action is of course headlined by Eagle Farm Race 7 – the $500,000 Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) for the fillies and mares.
Sydney raiders dominate those markets with the Gai Waterhouse-trained Dane Ripper Stakes winner Cosmic Endeavour and Chris Waller’s reigning champ, who won the Dane Ripper – Tiara double last year, Red Tracer sharing top spot in the markets.
The two other highlights on the card are then the $175,000 Group 3 W.J. Healy Stakes (1200m) where Grahame Begg’s mare Bennetta is favourite to beat the boys, and the $200,000 Group 2 Tattersall’s Cup (2200m) featuring Queensland Oaks winner Tinto up against older rivals.
To ensure you finish this year’s Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival on a high here are our Best Bets for the meeting so you can clean out the bookies.
In the Big One (Race 5) – 2014 Tattersall’s Tiara
#1 Red Tracer ($4.80)
She won the race last year on the back of a Dane Ripper win, and while she ran 10th in the Stradbroke in the lead-up this year, think Red Tracer can bounce back and continue the good record of Straddie runners in this race. Wide again (14) but overcame 16 12 months ago and is all class.
Better Than Bank Interest (Race 3) – 2014 Breakfast Creek Hotel Stakes
#2 Limehills ($2.80)
Third career run for Paul Messara’s maiden who has run second in both their starts so far. Firming in the markets to break through with a win here on the back of a good second to Sports Edition in the Listed Hampden Stakes (1200m) at this track last time out. Over-raced there and will have learnt a lot.
Best Upset To Win (Race 8) – Tattersall’s Open Mile
#8 Belle De Coeur ($5.50)
Favourite in the last of the day at $2.90 is the Gai Waterhouse-trained Queenstown. While taking nothing away from Berry’s mount who was an eye-catching third first-up on May 31 in Sydney and set to appreciate the extra distance here, think Luke Price’s hope in the race is ready to peak after a second behind Srikandi in the Glenlogan and her last start third to Cosmic Endeavour (favourite for the Tiara) in the Dane Ripper.
