Doomben horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:43) Tab Venue Mode Handicap (1350m)
#1 – Hinged @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hinged has yet to run worse than second from five career starts and another tidy effort is likely on Saturday.
The two-year-old scored at Ipswich in heavy conditions last start and it bodes well for this level of racing. She could go back-to-back and barrier three is ideal.
$2.80 is a fair price and we like her chances.
Race 2. (12:18) Gallopers Sports Club BM78 (2200m)
#1 – Tavion Prince @ $6 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old mixes his form, but he’s talented at best. He scored a win five starts back and returned to form when running third at Ipswich.
He might have finished 10 lengths behind Caulfield Cup favourite Incentivise, but he got the better of many quality stayers.
The son of Tavistock is a past winner at Doomben and punters get value odds.
Race 3. (12:53) Mount Franklin 0MW (1050m)
#6 – Able Mabel @ $2.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Most of the early money has come for Able Mabel and we’re not surprised. The four-year-old mare owns three wins from five starts and she won her only start on this track.
She prepared for this contest with a trial placing at Doomben and with only 54kg on her back, she gets everything in her favour.
She also gets the inside draw to her advantage.
Race 4. (13:28) Racecourse Village Handicap (1600m)
#6 – Indispensable $2.70 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Coming off back-to-back second placing is Indispensable, which has taken kindly to racing in Queensland and he’s worth sticking with.
The four-year-old son of Akeed Mofeed finished second behind Murless before running behind Prospectus at Ipswich. They were solid efforts in defeat and 55kg on his back is ideal.
$2.70 is worth taking as those odds could firm.
Race 5. (14:07) Sky Racing C3 Handicap (1200m)
#5 – Good Chat @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Good Chat ended his last campaign with four consecutive placings and he’s a past winner fresh up.
The David Vandyke-trained three-year-old has yet to finish outside the placing at the distance and his record at Doomben is solid.
Punters get value odds for a runner dropping in weight.
Race 6. (14:47) Mekka Wed Races BM72 (1600m)
#13 – Two Smokin Barrels @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old is only a two-win type from 14 starts, but he is dangerous on his day. He should be fitter for two runs this preparation and it’s time to strike.
The son of Declaration of War owns a win and placing at Doomben and with only 55.5kg on his back, we fancy his chances of success.
It’s a tough field, but the odds are generous.
Race 7. (15:27) XXXX Dry C6 Plate (1200m)
#1 – Axe @ $2.30 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Axe is a consistent winner of six from 17 starts and despite racing greenly last start, he battled on well for second behind Snitch.
It’s a strong form guide for this contest and the son of Written Tycoon should get every chance to find the front from barrier two.
$2.30 won’t last long, so take the value.
Race 8. (16:03) Tab BM85 (1350m)
#4 – Roman Aureus @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
There is a lot of class with Roman Aureus and he looks like a good bet. The four-year-old is a five-time winner and four of those wins came at Doomben.
His turn-of-foot is electric on his day and he should get everything run to suit. Expect jockey Larry Cassidy to settle him midfield before letting down in the straight.
His odds are firming significantly, so it could pay to lock in the odds.
Race 9. (16:38) Ascot Green Handicap (1350m)
#2 – Redoute’s Image @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
$4.40 for a runner coming off back-to-back wins is good shopping and Redoute’s Image could continue her fine form.
The three-year-old filly defeated a handy field at Eagle Farm last start and we’re surprised that she’s not the favourite to win.
We’ll happily take the each-way odds available in the last.
