Sneak peek at Saturday’s features

Print Friendly

It’s a bit quiet on the racing front at the moment so it may be a good opportunity to run our eyes over the fields for a big day at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

The big disappointment is probably the Queens Cup 3200m race which has really fallen away. Booming and Maythehorsebemagic will dominate this market, while Roi D’ Jeu and local hope Spechenka may have a bit of support on the day. I’m sure the club were hoping for more horses to accept, but any 3200m is always a spectacle. Like most two mile races there will be a few who will feel the pinch a long way out and don’t be surprised if they are strung out over 200m at the end of the gruelling test.

Here is the Queen’s Cup field:

1 5508244882 BOOMING (NZ)   1 Chris Munce 59 

2 5×08008108 FANTASTIC BLUE   10 Timothy Bell (a) 55.5 

3 70904×0109 HUME (NZ)   8 Scott Galloway 55.5 

4 x000402084 SPECHENKA   6 Ryan Wiggins 54

6 2112561827 MAYTHEHORSEBEMAGIC (NZ)  7 Jay Ford 54 

7 5212605525 ROI D’JEU (NZ)   3 Eddie Wilkinson 54 

8 0352×32315 SHADOWOFEXCELLENCE   5 —- 54 

9 2×00041163 HANDSOME DANE   9 —- 54 

10 42758×5711 WHITE CITY   11 — 54 

11 5255432541 FAMOUS FORTUNE   4 — 54 

 

 

The other feature on the day is the last of the big QTIS 600 bonus races over 1400m for the two year olds. Saluter, Caliente and Discreet come out of the Listed Lancaster where they ran 2nd, 3rd and 4th to Hoss Amor. The other main formline comes through the Ipswich race that Caldetes won and Fantisha ran 3rd. Add to that  a promising youngster from the Birchley camp Bee Plus and it looks a really competitive race.

1 2×1 CALDETES   5 Glen Colless 57 

2 13192 OBLIVIATE   19 Timothy Bell (a) 57
