Brisbane Best: Eagle Farm – 18th December 2021

Two eye-catching runs since a spell will have Tumbler Ridge ready to peak in Saturday’s Lough Neagh Stakes at Eagle Farm.

The O'Dea-Hoysted stallion settled back but closed to within 1.5L of the winner when resuming then again found the line well when missing by just a head in the Recognition Stakes last start.

That will have brought Tumbler Ridge to his peak and the 7 f on the big track looks ideal.

Boris Thornton sticks through the latest run and is building a good association with Tumbler Ridge so the pair looks tough to hold out.


Indian Dreamer is another that falls into the "last-start eye-catcher" category and goes around in the final race of the program.

The gelding settled last when resuming but ran on over 7 f at Gold Coast to finish just 0.7L off the winner.

He will relish the extra 1 f with a win and a placing from two attempts at the mile and with added fitness on his side he has strong claims.
