It is sunny in Brisbane for Cup Day and with no chance of rain the current Good (4) Eagle Farm track rating is set to stay across the afternoon making for an even surface and opening up the betting markets.

Brisbane racing kicks off this morning at 11:10am (AEST) with the nine-race Eagle Farm program coming to a close at 4:15pm (AEST).

The marquee race on the card is of course the Group 1 $700,000 Kingsford-Smith Cup (1300m) where the original 18 starter field is down to 17 due to yesterday’s scratching of Home Of The Brave due to an elevated temperature.

The powerhouse Godolphin stable are left with two starters in the Kingsford Smith Cup field including the current $6 favourite in betting at Ladbrokes.com.au, Trekking, chasing a third win on the trot.

Check out the full Brisbane scratchings for Eagle Farm below before heading over to Ladbrokes.com.au to place your Saturday best bets at the best odds.
