Early market selections

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This is our regular early market selections article where I go over some horses that may be worth looking at in early markets. This morning on RadioTab with Steve Hewlett I mentioned four horses at Eagle Farm that are worth serious thoughts.





*Simply got too far back last start.

*Form prior to that was very good.

*The big question is tactics with her? There is no pace engaged and I’d hope they ride her positively as that seems the key to the race.


Race 4 No.12 EMPRESS ME

*Returns from a long layoff.

*Trialled like a ‘bomb’ a fortnight ago in readiness for this.

*Great win on debut last prep and then ran soundly in a hot race 2nd up behind TRUMP, BIGGLES and co.


Race 5 No.1 ALL THAT

*Gate the main concern, but some of the main dangers have drawn even wider.

*Was specked in the Bat Out Of Hell (quality) at the Gold Coast where he had no luck at all!

*Drops to a No Metrop Win race here.

*Gets in with 57kg after the claim for Looker.


Race 6 No.9 TOMBOY ($2.60 on TattsBet is about as good as you will get)

*Third up into this suits.

*Looked as though she was looking for the 1500m after last start.

*Gets a cushy run from gate 2 and just needs luck on straightening  to get a clear run at them to win.


**Remember to check in for the big Brisbane preview ‘The Punt’ tomorrow!
