Doomben horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:33) Tab Long May We Play C3 (1350m)
#3 – Bubbles Ball – Bet Now
Bubbles Ball gets one last chance to impress having not won for some time now. The Kris Lees-trained mare ran third at Eagle Farm last start and that was a solid effort in defeat.
The daughter of Zoustar was formerly a consistent runner in Sydney and if she gets back to that class, she won’t be beaten here.
Race 2. (13:08) BRC Membership Renewal Maiden (1660m)
#3 – Elgin – Bet Now
Elgin is a consistent six-year-old that has scored three consecutive placings this campaign. The son of Rip Van Winkle has yet to win but owns eight placings from 16 starts.
Drawing barrier 16 isn’t going to help her chances here but she handles all track conditions and should be a factor here.
Each-way odds should be available for punters.
Race 3. (13:43) XXXX Dry Maiden (1200m)
#4 – Ready to Chase – Bet Now
Desleigh Forster lines up the three-year-old gelding that has finished second at his last two starts.
He ran second at Sunshine Coast before going within a neck from the winner at Ipswich last time out.
It is good form coming into this race and with Mark du Plessis in the saddle from barrier six, he should get every chance to win.
Race 4. (14:18) Tab Long May We Play Maiden (1100m)
#12 – Shooting for Gold – Bet Now
There was plenty to like about the debut effort from Shooting for Gold, which ran second at Gold Coast.
The Steven O’Dea-trained son of Shooting to Win was only a neck behind the winner and he hit the line with good authority.
His recent trial win came by seven lengths and that is a good form guide.
Race 5. (14:53) Cascade C4 Handicap (1660m)
#4 – Sayl – Bet Now
Sayl is a last-start winner at Doomben and he could go back-to-back. The four-year-old won by a length as a $16 chance and his odds should be shorter here.
The son of Iffraaj has finished in the money in eight of his 19 starts and carrying 55kg should take him close in this contest.
Michael Cahill is a good rider to have in the saddle and he should go well.
Race 6. (15:28) Millers Swim School BM70 (1050m)
#3 – Aheadoftime – Bet Now
Aheadoftime kicked off his new campaign with a win at odds and that was generous from bookmakers, but they might not be as generous this time around.
The four-year-old Deep Field is a four-time winner, including three at this distance. He also owns a win at this track and he is a good chance of going back-to-back.
Race 7. (16:03) Kirin C1 Handicap (1200m)
#6 – Zoofari – Bet Now
Zoofari has made a great start to her career, which includes a win and two second placings. The Tony Gollan-trained mare won by 2.3 lengths at Sunshine Coast last start and that is a good form guide.
The daughter of Zoustar scored at odds of $1.40 and after drawing barrier five for this run, her odds could be similar.
Jim Byrne takes the ride and she should be awfully tough to hold out.
Race 8. (16:38) The Village Kitchen Ascot Handicap (1200m)
#2 – McCovey Cove – Bet Now
McCovey Cove is fresh up after winning at Doomben last year and although he hasn’t been seen since October, he has obvious talent.
The son of Husson made good ground from midfield and despite drawing barrier 11 here, he has winning claims.
Punters could get each-way odds given the time off the track.
