Brisbane Best: Eagle Farm – 11th December 2021

Shooting For Gold is unbeaten at Eagle Farm and looks well placed to maintain that record in Saturday’s Bribie Handicap.

The progressive sprinter made an encouraging return when he closed well to get within 2L of Zoustyle first with that galloper franking the form by winning at Group level since.

Shooting For Gold has trialled since so will have come on and he is unbeaten in three previous second-up attempts.

Shooting For Gold worked through his grades in good style last campaign, heading to the paddock off a string of wins and is three from three at Eagle Farm.

He is also yet to miss a place over 5 f so ticks plenty of boxes.


A brave fresh showing will have Dusty Tycoon fitter and ready to give a sight in the following event.

Robert Heathcote's mare led and fought on to go down by 1.3L first up at Sunshine Coast and she has a 50 per cent strike rate second up so should have progressed.

She is building a good record at 6 f and the low draw can see her in this for a long way.
