The focus might be on the big action from Warwick Farm and Caulfield this Saturday, but Doomben has a terrific nine-race card as well.
We have form and free tips for every race on the card which includes competitive fields and some smart types in action.
Doomben free tips & form
Race 1. (12:37) Mount Franklin 2YO Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Bigboyroy @ $1.95 – BET NOW
Bigboyroy has attracted some big bets in the early going. The Chris Waller-trained colt ran a good second on debut and has been backed in from $2.40 to $1.90.
That’s a significant move for a juvenile having its second start but it’s a good market lead and the son of Dissident looks to have plenty of ability at this level.
Race 2. (13:12) Coca Cola Plate C3 (1600m)
#2 – Reckless Choice @ $2.60 – BET NOW
Dropping back from a tough race at Randwick to this at Doomben bodes well for the current favourite, which finished only 1.6 lengths behind Brazen last start.
His form prior included a second placing at Gold Coast and a two-length win at Sunshine Coast. That came last preparation and after two runs this time in, he looks a good chance to break through here.
Drawn the rails and his opening price of $3 has been taken.
Race 3. (13:47) Canadian Club BM75 (2200m)
#2 – Evolo @ $3.60 – BET NOW
Doesn’t always run up to the best of his ability but he faces an easier task this time around after running 10th at Gold Coast last time out.
The Toby Edmonds-trained four-year-old was a winner at Gold Coast by a nose prior to that and it’s a better showing of his true talent.
Jeff Lloyd continues to ride the son of All Too Hard and he should be hard to beat.
Race 4. (14:22) Jim Beam Handicap (1050m)
#4 – Sanglier @ $3.70 – BET NOW
Form appears average at first glance and it is but he’s a former Sydney-trained colt which should show quick improvement in this grade.
Now with Matthew Dunn, the three-year-old colt has run behind the likes of Sunset Watch and Long Leaf in tough races in Melbourne and Sydney.
Since arriving in Queensland, he has scored a trial win by 2.8 lengths and this could be perfect. His odds have also dropped from $4 to $3.70.
Race 5. (15:02) Cascade BM70 (1050m)
#4 – Whycatchim @ $4.20 – BET NOW
Looked good running five times last preparation for one win and three placings. The Ben Currie-trained gelding finished close behind the winners in three consecutive starts and that form looks good for this.
His most recent win came in January of last year but he has been primed with a recent trial win and he looks a solid each-way play.
Race 6. (15:42) Canadian Club C6 Handicap (1200m)
#10 – Langhro @ $2.70 – BET NOW
Lightly-tried six-year-old which has been narrowly beaten at Caulfield and Flemington prior to making the switch to Queensland.
The three-time winner scored by 5.5 lengths at Wangaratta three back and it’s those kinds of wins which will make him tough to beat here.
He’s suited to the 54kg and considering he carried over 58kg for all three career wins, he should go close in this.
Race 7. (16:22) Coca Cola Handicap (1350m)
#6 – Boomtown Lass @ $3.30 – BET NOW
Chris Anderson was able to get the filly to perform at her highest level when scoring by 6.5 lengths at Ipswich last start.
The dominant victory capped off some solid form in behind the likes of Terminology and Dream Serenade. She steps up in grade now but drops nicely in weight to 54kg and that should take her close here.
$3.30 is a fair price.
Race 8. (17:00) Cascade Handicap (1350m)
#6 – Star Reflection @ $2.75 – BET NOW
Kris Lees lines up the six-year-old mare which ran close behind Snoopy at Eagle Farm last start and that looms looks good for this.
The well-travelled mare was a winner on Gold Coast and Randwick prior to that defeat and she beat some nice runners in the process when scoring an upset win at odds of $67.
Much shorter odds here but they’re warranted at the weights.
Race 9. (17:40) Tab C6 Handicap (1600m)
#9 – Saxton Rock @ $6 – BET NOW
Always a dangerous proposition when down in weights and it faces a similar field to last start when he carried 56kg.
The Dunn-trained runner is a three-time winner from 21 starts and although he hasn’t won as many as he could have, his consistency often rewards punters.
Stick with him at the each-way odds.
