Eagle Farm: Race 3 (3:55pm AEDT)
No. 5 Scottish Mist

Scottish Mist will take good improvement into her second campaign start at Eagle Farm today and can return to winning form.

The Rothesay mare won three consecutive races towards the tail end of her last preparation, and returned a nice effort to fill the minors at Doomben when resuming this time.

She shouldn’t have too much of a problem finding a nice position in this small field and she’ll be hard to hold out.

Eagle Farm: Race 4 (4:35pm AEDT)
No. 10 Think Glory

Think Glory is another horse that looks well placed to win second-up at Eagle Farm this afternoon.

The So You Think filly didn’t show a lot during her first preparation, but the time away from the track looks to have brought her on, and she charged in to finish third at Doomben when resuming.

With natural improvement and from the good draw, this looks to be a nice opportunity for her to begin her rise through the grades.

Eagle Farm: Race 6 (5:45pm AEDT)
No. 5 Miss Gem

Miss Gem has returned some eye-catching efforts this preparation, and she can return to winning form at Eagle Farm today.

The Michael Costa-trained mare recorded wins on the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast in the latter part of spring, and she was four weeks between runs into a credible fourth placing at Ipswich on New Year’s Day.

I think she’ll strip fitter for that effort, and she has options today from the rails draw.

Eagle Farm: Race 8 (6:50pm AEDT)
No. 3 Mosshiki

Mosshiki only just missed at the Sunshine Coast last start, and he can go one better at Eagle Farm this afternoon.

The Mossman gelding has improved with each start back from a spell and was beaten only by the classy Steinbrenner last time out.

He’s rock-hard fit and this looks a lovely race for him.
