Midweek racing in Queensland continues at Doomben, which is offering an eight-race card for punters on Wednesday.
With quality fields throughout the day, we have free tips and form for every race at the meeting.
Doomben free tips & form
Race 1. (12:43) Maiden Handicap (1100m)
#1 – Aengus – Bet Now
The lightly-tried five-year-old gelding is having just its second start and first since running second on debut at Morphettville in 2016.
The lengthy break is a concern for punters but seeing Jeff Lloyd take the ride is a good sign of what this gelding could provide on race day.
Betting will be a good guide so watch for any late betting moves.
Race 2. (13:18) QTIS Handicap (1350m)
#5 – Shooting Love – Bet Now
Ben Currie might be in hot water off the track but his team is firing on race day. He lines up Shooting Love here, which ran third on debut as a well-backed elect.
The filly by Shooting To Win ran under a length behind the winner on this track and getting the inside draw here is going to suit nicely.
It’s another ride from Jeff Lloyd and it should be right around the mark.
Race 3. (13:53) C1 Plate (2060m)
#7 – William – Bet Now
Comes into this on the back of a last-start win at Grafton where he burst down the outside to score by 1.5 lengths.
That was a strong performance and indicative of a three-year-old gelding that has more wins in store this season.
He’s a well-bred son of Fastnet Rock which will benefit from the inside draw and Jeff Lloyd in the saddle once again.
Race 4. (14:28) QTIS Maiden (1110m)
#12 – Vega One – Bet Now
Tony Gollan lines up the three-year-old gelding which should have won from his eight prior starts but he has looked good with three placings.
He finished second behind subsequent Saturday winner Millard Reaction at Doomben last start and that has been franked very nicely in a tough race.
Stays at a good weight in this and he should be a well-backed proposition come race day.
Race 5. (15:03) QTIS Maiden Plate (1100m)
#2 – Boom County – Bet Now
Tony Gollan has plenty of nice juveniles on his hands and Boom County could be another one of them.
The filly by Spirit Of Boom comes into this with a trial win at Doomben and she ran a good time over the 840m.
Drawing barrier 11 makes it awkward but she should be able to show good pace on debut and the longer distance will help.
Race 6. (15:38) C3 Plate (1350m)
#9 – Six Stigma – Bet Now
Drawing wide could make it tough for the Gollan-trained runner but he’s coming off a tidy two-length win at Doomben and that bodes well.
The son of Pierro has finished in the money in six of his nine career starts, including two wins and three second placings.
The former Victorian has adjusted nicely to life in Queensland and another win could be on the cards.
Race 7. (16:13) BM65 Handicap (1650m)
#10 – Leftkas Island – Bet Now
Five-year-old mare which is getting better with every run this campaign after running second at Doomben last time out.
The three-win mare isn’t the most consistent around and bookmakers should be offering good each-way odds here, but she can pop up at this level.
We wouldn’t be ruling out her chances of producing a good effort.
Race 8. (16:52) C2 Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Dinnigan – Bet Now
Dinnigan is another quality runner for Tony Gollan which comes into this having scored by a half-length as the $1.50 favourite.
That came on the back of running 13th behind Houtzen in a tough race at Randwick and her form in Sydney stacks up beautifully for this.
We’re expecting her to win more often than not when running in Queensland.
