Brisbane Best: Eagle Farm – 14th March 2020

Promising sprinter Fisticuffs looks well placed to make a winning return at Gold Coast on Saturday.

Team Edmonds' lightly-raced three-year-old resumes after close to five months in the Sunshine Coast Scorchers Benchmark 72 over 1200m.

Fisticuffs showed good ability in his latest campaign winning his first two starts after a spell, both over this distance.

He can be expected to be wound up to fire fresh again after winning a recent trial and has been gelded since last seen so could be set to work through his grades this time in.

If jockey Robbie Fradd can slot him in from a double-digit barrier and gain clear running in the straight he looks hard to hold out.

Classy sprinter Chapter And Verse offers each way odds in one of the day's features, the TAB Goldmarket over 1300m.

The Desleigh Forster-trained gelding will be suited off a seven-week let-up as he races well on the fresh side but has been kept up to the mark with a trial win.

He has had a good campaign, highlighted by a win in the Group 3 George Moore Stakes and jockey Mark Du Plessis has developed a good association with him.

Chapter And Verse's best ratings are good enough to win this if at his best so looks worth an each way bet.
