CrownBet Bookie report – EAGLE FARM Saturday 4 February
Race 1 – MORENDI $4.60, won from THREE POINTS, COURT’S STAR
Morendi opened $4.60, was well supported into $3.40 but drifted to start at $4.60 as the late money came for runner up Three Points who was well supported from $10 into $5 to narrowly miss out.
Race 2 – RED HOT MISS $13, won from PINSTRYKE, BERAHT
The market suggested this would be a one horse affair with Trestrail supported from $3 into $1.80 to disappoint quite a few punters. Red Hot Miss never had much support drifting from $8 top $13.
Race 3 – QUATRONIC $3.60, won from HI I’M BACK, ALL TROOPS
Quatronic was too good for them in the third race despite the late drift from $3 out to $4. Second placed Hi I’m Back had plenty of friends coming in from $13 to $8.

Just Racing Week End Overview:
Horse to Follow: Formality, smart 2 year old who got home 8 lengths quicker than unbeaten 2 year old Jukebox on the same day admittedly over a shorter distance.
Ride of The Day: Have to give it to the Gauch on his last day in the saddle on Goodwill.
Run of The Day: In Her Time who sat wide with no cover the trip to win the Group 2 Breeders Classic.
Forget It Ran: Mystic Opal who was given an absolute B Grade ride by former Group 1 jockey L Cassidy. Will be making amends very shortly.
