The Professors Guide to Roughies!

Eagle Farm today sees a lot of good races, anyway, just thought I would share my opinions on the best outside chances running around in all 8 races.

They are somewhat rough, so I may come up with nothing, but if you are like me - this is how you like to invest.

Race 1:
Not too interesting in terms of roughies, I think Lancaster Park ($26) can improve. There seems to be enough of a wrap on it and this is an easy race.

Race 2:
Again, wish I had of started this preview with Race 3, however lets lock in Our Jangles ($21).

Race 3:
Looks to be a race in two - High Rollin' WOman and Black Minx. I will be betting on High Rollin' to turn the tables but a good outside chance is Cloudcatcher at $13.

Race 4:
A horse that lost to El Cambio by 2.5 lengths - whilst carrying equal weights. Comes in on 53 kgs. Paying $51??? Take Frosty each way and call it your roughie of the day.

Race 5:
Three roughies to like here.
1) Alverta ($17) - last first up run was a nose behind Takeover Target. Good enough for me here.
2) Sir Monashee ($13 allegedly will be more like $30)- owner of the hottest 1000 metre times in this field. That was three starts back. Last start looked like he was back - length behind your favourite Sectagonal. Has a good gate and could be too good.
3) Nessuno ($26) Owner of a 56.85 1,000 metre time with 62,5 kgs on his back!! Has 53 here and looks like he is coming back into form as well.

Race 6:
Will probably go with Riva San here, personally. However if you want some juicy odds, you could go worse than Rainbow Styling who has been solidly working through the classes to get here.

Race 7:
All of my favourite roughies here have shocking gates.
- Helideck
- Swiss Ace
- Snipers Bullet (now its dry)
- Absolut Glam
They could all go well though.

Am actually leaning towards Swick in the big one now..

Race 8:
Chevron Island ($26) - Country form around some decent horses. May stack up here.
By this time big Frosty will have made this all academic anyway.
