Brisbane Best: Eagle Farm – 15th August 2020

Talented gelding Rock Beat can end proceedings on a sweet note when he lines up in the final race on the card at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

Rock Beat possessed a 50 per cent strike rate before his resuming effort and was unlucky not to add to settling near the tail before running on for a close third.

That was his first outing for seven months so it should have improved him and while he has been kept fresh with a month between runs he does race well that way.

Rock Beat has strong statistics at the course and distance and if jockey Luke Tarrant can get him into the right spot from a double-digit barrier he has the ratings to win.



Mushaireb has the hoof on the till and looks to have found the right race earlier in the program.

Readied with two runs in Sydney after a spell, the gelding raced just behind the speed and fought well when a close second at this course a fortnight ago.

That outing will have brought him to his peak and he should appreciate the step up to 1 1⁄8 m so gets his chance to win.
