Doomben horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:08) Gallopers Sports Club Handicap (1050m)
#2 – Pomade @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Pomade comes off two solid trials and the colt by Star Turn could make a winning debut.
The Kris Lees-trained runner trialed at Newcastle and Gosford, so coming to Queensland should suit him better.
The early betting support is there, which is a good sign.
Race 2. (12:43) BRC Membership Plus C3 Plate (1600m)
#4 – Tamilaide @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old son of Adelaide is a three-time winner from 10 starts and he also has six placings to his name.
It’s an impressive record, and although yet to win at Doomben, he owns three placings on the track.
Drawing barrier four is ideal and he handles all surfaces, so any moisture won’t be a problem.
Race 3. (13:18) Racecourse Village BM90 (1600m)
#1 – Cloak @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Cloak runs at value odds after showing little this season, but we’re keeping the faith with the six-year-old.
He is a seven-time winner and three of those have come at the track and distance, so he’s overdue a winning performance.
2kg comes off his back and that could make all the difference.
Race 4. (13:53) Cascade BM78 (2000m)
#2 – See Marie @ $2.45 – Bet @ Sportsbet
See Marie kicked off her preparation with consecutive wins before taking on some tough fields in two subsequent runs.
The four-year-old mare by Sebring was only 2.5 lengths behind Wheelhouse last start at Gold Coast, which is an excellent form guide.
Barrier two helps and the money is starting to come for the favourite.
Race 5. (14:32) Girls Day Out Handicap (1200m)
#11 – Kipsbay @ $3.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kipsbay turned his form around with a second placing at Canterbury last start and that form bodes well at Doomben.
The Chris Waller-trained three-year-old was under a half-length behind the winner and they don’t take long to break maidens from this stable.
We expect the $3.30 to firm throughout the week.
Race 6. (15:18) Stradbroke Season on Sale Soon (1200m)
#7 – Amity Gal @ $2.35 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The David Vandyke-trained three-year-old led them a merry chase on debut when racing on a rain affected track.
She scored by 1.3 lengths as a $1.20 favourite, so there is plenty of hype with this runner. Punters get better odds here, but she faces a much harder field.
The early signs are good, so put her on top.
Race 7. (15:52) XXXX Dry BM72 (1200m)
#3 – Mix @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
It’s not easy to win three races on the bounce, and despite rising in class, he is a nice type in the making.
The four-year-old scored by 2.5 lengths at Kilcoy last time out and he had plenty in hand, so he’s worth following again.
Money is coming for him and he could start much shorter.
Race 8. (16:32) Sky Racing Handicap (1110m)
#13 – Kingston’s Here @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
It’s another favourite selection, but Kingston’s Here is tough to overlook following his recent success.
The four-year-old scored at Sunshine Coast before winning at Doomben as an odds-on favourite last start, so punters get better odds here.
Carrying 54kg is a steal and we’re confident of a big effort despite the wide draw.
Race 9. (17:12) Tab Venue Mode C6 (1350m)
#5 – Roman Aureus @ $9.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Roman Aureus is better than advertised and he’s getting back to his best form with two recent placings.
The five-year-old gelding owns four wins and seven placings from 12 starts, so racing at Doomben is right up his alley.
Punters get lovely odds and they’re worth taking.
