EAGLE FARM PREVIEW with Chris Scholtz – June 15

14 June, 2024

Selections and best bets from Chris Scholtz for the Stradbroke meeting at Eagle Farm on June 15.


Track: Good 4; Rail: Out 4.5m entire

Best Bet

RACE 2: (5) PEREILLE – Hard to fault a gelding who has missed a place only once in 15 starts including four wins over this distance. I’m sure this has been a target race for this 4YO after he was sent north to record a resounding first-up win by four lengths under 59.5kg on a heavy track at Caloundra five weeks ago. An impressive trial win back at home at Hawkesbury on June 3 ensures he will be at his peak for his return to Queensland.

Best Value

RACE 9: (3) LIGHT INFANTRY MAN – Classy import was having only his second Australian start when he resumed in the Scone Cup over 1600m with his strong closing surge under 61kg a precursor to what lies ahead. A second up win will not surprise as he is a genuine G1 performer and will appreciate the set weight conditions over this trip. Goes without saying that he’s under the care of a trainer adept at getting the best out of this type of import.

Why They Can Win….

RACE 1: (1) FREEDOM RALLY – Super record at this course. Well placed after his latest G1 effort.

RACE 3: (5) DEPTH OF CHARACTER – Lot of merit in his debut win after a poor start. Track and distance will suit.

RACE 4: (7) MOSTY CLOUDY – Genuine stayer favoured by the weights. Trust his Flemington form to stand up.

RACE 5: (3) RAZORS – Rates to win on his Queensland Guineas second. Excuses last time and strong trial since.

RACE 6: (1) BROADSIDING – Class act with superior form.

RACE 7: (6) COEUR VOLANTE: Excellent closing sectional when resuming over shorter trip. Unbeaten second up.
