JOHN McLeod looks for Eagle Farm tips with an ominous weather forecast for the return to Eagle Farm on Saturday.
Brisbane’s number one venue has been out of action while undergoing a multi-million dollar renovation since August 2014.
Despite the threat of rain TopBetta’s Brisbane Carnival $250,000 Tournament with a 1st Prize of $100,000 will continue and you can join now by clicking below to enter.
Despite just 4mm of rain falling in the seven days to Friday morning, up to 100mm is forecast for Saturday.
With further downgrades expected to the Soft 5 track, McLeod is hoping to use the conditions to his advantage when betting and preparing Saturday’s set for his subscribers.
“There’s going to plenty of rain tonight and throughout the day tomorrow so it’s going to be a bit of a slog fest,” McLeod said on Friday.
“Very fit horses, good trainers and good jockeys – that’s what you have to be looking for.
“I won’t be frightened to bet there. You just have to find the right horses on these types of tracks and look for wet trackers.
“It becomes like a maiden where you can rule out three quarters of the field and you can play around with four or five horses. That’s what I’m going to be doing.”
With the event the seventh race scheduled on the day, punters will almost certainly be looking for the fittest fillies on a potentially bottomless track.
McLeod revealed that was the sole concern he has over the Chris Waller-trained Sebring Sally, which is currently a $19 chance for the race.
John McLeod's set earned followers a guaranteed profit for the day at Doomben last Saturday after only race one.

“She’s a nice horse and put in a big run (in The Roses) but doesn’t fall into the category of a very fit horse,” McLeod said.
“That’s the only proviso on this horse. I thought she went really well the other day.
“She’s had an 1800m and 2000m run but I’d prefer her to have had another 2200m run leading into this race.”
McLeod is also keen on another prominent Oaks runner and has found a number of other value plays on the day. See where his money will be going in the video below.
