Brisbane Best: Eagle Farm – 13th August 2022

Fresh winner Legal Esprit ticks plenty of boxes in his attempt to salute again at Eagle Farm on Saturday.

The progressive gelding was impressive in his first outing for four months when settling back but running on strongly to win over 5 1⁄4 f at Doomben.

The way he hit the line there suggests Legal Esprit will relish the extra 0 and he has won two of three second up attempts so is sure to have come on.

He races well at this track and Adin Thompson sticks, his 4lbs claim bringing Legal Esprit in well.


A handy drop in the weights gives Top Order each way prospects earlier in the program.

He has been finding the line nicely of late and little went his way when held up last start at Doomben.

He takes a step up in grade but that is offset by the weight drop and the open expanse of Eagle Farm suits his style of racing.



BET OF THE DAY: Race 7 #1 Legal Esprit @ $4.00

EACH WAY PLAY: Race 3 #7 Top Order @ $12.00
