Doomben horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:33) Help a Neighbour Maiden (1640m)
#5 – City Smart – Bet Now
City Smart has been around the mark in every run this campaign and he won’t take long to win a race.
The Robert Heathcote-trained gelding went close when fourth at Sunshine Coast last start. The form out of that race should stack up nicely and he meets an even field.
We’re expecting him to be right on the money.
Race 2. (12:08) Millers Swim School BM90 (2220m)
#1 – Quality Seeker – Bet Now
Quality Seeker was a big disappointment last start and the betting drift told the story. The Maher/Eustace-trained runner looked much better prior to that run when winning back-to-back races.
He’s a five-year-old that owns five wins from 19 starts and he could get a good run throughout and get back to winning form.
Race 3. (12:43) Healthcare Workers Handicap (1350m)
#4 – Uncomplicated – Bet Now
Uncomplicated made a big impression when scoring an upset win at odds of $41 on debut. The two-year-old should get confidence from that effort, so stick with her.
The daughter of Akeed Mofeed will start at much shorter odds this time around and we’re liking her chances to go back-to-back.
Watch for any late betting moves.
Race 4. (13:18) Tab Maiden (1350m)
#2 – Angus the Black – Bet Now
Tony Gollan trains the gelding that is knocking on the door after three consecutive placings.
The son of Rothesay finished just behind the winner at Doomben last start and he looks likely to win a race soon.
It’s his sixth start and although punters haven’t come up with the goods to date, he looms as a major winning threat on Saturday.
Race 5. (13:53) Bernborough Ascot Handicap (1640m)
#2 – Get Stuck In – Bet Now
Get Stuck In has got stuck in this campaign with back-to-back wins. The five-year-old scored easily by 4.3 lengths two back and it scored another top win last start.
He scored by 2.5 lengths at Doomben and he led throughout the race. Against a small field, those tactics are premium here and he should be right in the thick of the action.
Race 6. (14:32) Lexus C3 Plate (1110m)
#7 – Gin ‘N’ Bitters – Bet Now
Looking to maintain her unbeaten record is Gin ‘N’ Bitters, which owns three wins from three starts.
The daughter of Sebring recorded all three wins at Sunshine Coast and her debut win came by 3.8 lengths.
She owns good barrier speed and that’s going to win her many more races.
Race 7. (15:12) Roku Gin Handicap (1110m)
#2 – Sugar Boom – Bet Now
Sugar Boom could go boom and fresh up record is impressive. She has won two of her three fresh starts and she was good enough to win three in a row last preparation.
Her most recent run at Eagle Farm wasn’t great but she rebounded with back-to-back trial wins at Doomben.
It shapes up for a good campaign and she should be the one to beat.
Race 8. (15:52) XXXX Dry BM85 (1200m)
#8 – Solar Star – Bet Now
Solar Star is getting close to a win after running second at Eagle Farm last time out. The mare is a professional six-time winner that rarely runs a bad race.
Her two starts on this track have been only fair but she loves this distance and that’s going to help.
She handles all track conditions and the jockey is riding well at the moment.
Race 9. (16:32) Racecourse Village BM72 (1350m)
#8 – Amicitia – Bet Now
Amicitia owns four wins from 10 starts and that’s a record that should hold up nicely at this level.
The Gollan-trained mare comes into this race having scored by 1.3 lengths last start. It was a nice effort going forward and she could win again.
Punters should get each-way odds.
