We have expert betting tips for the card this Saturday at Doomben that features nine quality betting races.
The Brisbane Winter Carnival might be over, but the excellent racing out of the Sunshine State continues and we have our best value bets available.
Doomben horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:23) Tab Venue Mode Handicap (1615m)
#1 – Hinged @ $1.95 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hinged is a professional winner of four from six starts and she has yet to finish worse than second.
It’s a quality record and the two-year-old filly could extend that record on Saturday with another victory.
3kg comes off her back and punters have launched into her odds.
Race 2. (11:58) Gallopers Sports Club Handicap (2020m)
#3 – Tavion Prince @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Tony Gollan-trained five-year-old comes off a win at Doomben and he’s capable of going back-to-back.
He is a seven-time winner overall and two-time winner on the track. Despite not having form over this distance, the small field will help his chances.
Punters get each-way betting odds and he’s worth including in selections.
Race 3. (12:33) BRC Membership Handicap (1615m)
#1 – Rogue Rocker @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Rogue Rocker was good enough to score three consecutive wins before disappointing last time out at Sunshine Coast.
The three-year-old son of Dissident owns four wins from eight starts and we’re prepared to overlook his most recent performance. It came against a solid field and he shouldn’t find this any harder.
3kg comes off his back and punters get each-way odds.
Race 4. (13:08) Mt Franklin Handicap (1050m)
#6 – Miami Fleiss @ $1.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Miami Fleiss didn’t enjoy the heavy conditions last start but her form prior was excellent and she is the testing material.
The Gollan-trained three-year-old won by 3.5 lengths two starts back and getting back to soft track conditions will suit her nicely.
She has class on her side and carrying 54kg makes her awfully tough to beat. We expect those odds to firm throughout the week.
Race 5. (13:43) Racecourse Village BM72 (2020m)
#13 – The Catch @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Michael Costa-trained gelding owns two wins from his last three starts and he gets the inside draw with a light weight to help here.
He is a well-bred son of Medaglia D’oro that comes off a 2.3-length win at Grafton and there is plenty to like about that form going forward.
$4.20 is worth taking and those odds should firm on race day.
Race 6. (14:18) XXXX BM72 (1200m)
#17 – So Clever @ $2.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
So Clever is looking to remain unbeaten after three starts having won his first two races by over five lengths.
The four-year-old gelding won by 3.3 lengths on debut at Gold Coast before doubling down and winning by 2.3 lengths at Eagle Farm.
He shows good barrier speed and dropping to 52kg is ideal. We expect another top effort from the favourite.
Race 7. (14:57) Sky Racing BM85 (1615m)
#4 – Indispensable @ $1.95 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The four-year-old gelding owns seven wins and 10 placings from 27 starts, so he’s rarely not producing on the track.
He comes off a win at Doomben against a field of five, but he won by 4.8 lengths in a dominant performance and a repeat could be on the cards.
Two wins have come on this track and we’re prepared to take the odds-on quote.
Race 8. (15:37) Tab C6 Handicap (1350m)
#4 – Hard Labour @ $4.40 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hard Labour is a four-year-old mare that owns five wins from nine starts and that record is tough to overlook.
The daughter of All Too Hard comes off a win at Grafton where she scored comfortably by 1.8 lengths, so that was a promising effort.
Barrier nine could make it tricky, but respect her ability and put her on top.
Race 9. (16:13) Mekka Wednesday C6 (1350m)
#1 – Roman Aureus @ $4.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Boasting an impressive turn-of-foot is Roman Aureus, who hit the line nicely for second last start and he looks ready to win.
The son of Red Element owns four wins at Doomben, so he loves the track and all four of those wins came over this distance.
Drawing barrier 14 means he’ll likely settle back, but he has a 3kg claimer riding and that will help.
