The weather trackside in Brisbane today is for a partly cloudy but otherwise fine day and, without any rain on the radar, the current Good (4) Eagle Farm track rating looks set to stay across the card.
Brisbane racing gets underway this morning at 11:34am (AEST) and the exciting nine-race program continues through until the fillies and mares face off in the Listed $150,000 Magic Millions Helen Coughlan Stakes at 4:34pm (AEST).
The first Group race on the line-up is scheduled as Race 3 when the undefeated Ayrton is at short-odds to salute in the Group 3 Fred Best Classic (1400m) before tackling the 2021 Stradbroke Handicap in a fortnight.
The richest race on the card is the Group 2 $1 million BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes (1400m) for the J.J. Atkins-bound two-year-olds and it is another undefeated youngster in the Robert Heathcote-trained Prince Of Boom tipped to take out the million-dollar feature.
Elite level racing kicks off with Race 7 at 3:18pm (AEST) and it is a class field gathered for the Group 1 $600,000 Queensland Derby over the mile and a half.
The 2021 Queensland Derby odds online at Ladbrokes.com.au favour the gun three-year-old of the season, the ATC Derby – SA Derby champion Explosive Jack who dominates the markets on the capacity field.
The meeting’s marquee race follows with the Group 1 $700,000 Kingsford-Smith Cup over 1300m set to run as Eagle Farm Race 8 at 3:58pm (AEST).
The Kingsford-Smith Cup field is down to 15 starters with the withdrawal of the widely-drawn Imaging for Chris Waller who had the outside alley.
Kingsford-Smith Cup 2021 betting at Ladbrokes.com.au is tipped to be a two-horse affair between Godolphin’s classy mare Savatiano and South Australian star Gytrash who is out to atone for his first-up third in The Goodwood.
