A few to watch EKKA raceday

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

**I have had a few requests for a preview of the EKKA raceday. Some of the races are not real good betting propositions including a couple of big maidens but I thought I may be able to hand pick a few that hopefully help out. Have a great day if you head out!




Leaning to DARLIN’ JULES here from the gate and with the rail out. Dominant last start and no reason she can’t go on with it after a well-deserved win. FANCIFUL is close to a win and can run well, with the only query the amount of start it may have to give away.



*I will admit it looks a task to beat some of these tough old horses like DOUBLE IMPACT and he may not get in well at the weights but I envisage some speed up front and prepared to have something on CABALLO RAPIDO as he looks the one on the way up. Won’t go silly but he may be the value in the race.


Race 8 No’s  11- QFIGHTER  *I have mentioned both as there may be a heap of scratchings and this race can change quickly depending on how many scratch etc.

I simply think they are the best horses in the race. QFIGHTER is a wet tracker and Cahill gets on top which could be a good lead.



**We also have a couple of BLACKBOOK runners with legitimate chances:

Deb’s Hope – Eagle Farm R6 No.9 (1200m): Leading chance
Dane Princess – Eagle Farm R7 No.12 (1823m): WOuld have liked a race with less speed but is going well.
