Brisbane Best: Eagle Farm – 21st December 2019

The Summer carnival in Brisbane is well and truly underway as we head to the Magic Millions in a month.

The big move was to bring the Grand Prix to December from the Winter carnival and we're following along the Mark Newnham success.

Mission Phoenix has only had three runs, winning two of them in good style.

Given his breeding, it comes as no surprise that he'd love getting over a journey and all the trials suggest he's needed time as well.

He has shown speed before which will be very handy given the draw and the shortish run to the first turn.

This stable travels horses well and picks the right ones so we're confident he'll run a great race.

Later how can you not love the way Tactical Advantage is going at present?

You therefore think even back 0 off a freshen up that he will be rattling home in the Falvelon Quality and looks an each way special.

An excellent win on Melbourne Cup day was followed by a cracking effort in The Hunter on his home track.

While he is being asked to carry 133lbs here, he was lumping good weights this campaign against superior horses to these.

The barrier looks bad but he gets right back anyway. We suspect Andrew Mallyon will pull to the outside and rattle.


BET OF THE DAY: Race 5 #6 Mission Phoenix @ $3.60

EACH WAY PLAY: Race 8 #1 Tactical Advantage @ $6.50
