Doomben horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:53) Welcome Back to BRC Handicap (1200m)
#2 – Acrobatic @ $2.80 – Bet Now
Acrobatic is coming off an impressive 2.8-length win at Doomben and he could go back-to-back this month.
The two-year-old gelding led from the front last time out and we’re expecting him to land on the speed from barrier 10.
Having Mark du Plessis in the saddle helps and the odds are worth taking.
Race 2. (12:28) Quincy Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Kisukano @ $2.30 – Bet Now
Kisukano is the class runner of this field after putting away a solid field by 2.8 lengths last time out.
She gets punished with a big weight of 63.5kg but the apprentice claim from Alex Patis will help with that.
She has won over $500,000 and she is the testing material in this race.
Race 3. (13:03) Tab Long May We Play Handicap (1600m)
#2 – Right or Wrong – Bet Now
Right or Wrong will appreciate running in this grade after running fourth behind Wren’s Day at Ipswich last week.
The eight-year-old returned to his best form when winning at Doomben in May and he does his best racing on the track. It was his third win from six starts and he has yet to miss a cheque at Doomben.
Each-way odds should be available for punters.
Race 4. (13:38) XXXX Dry C6 Plate (1200m)
#7 – Malahat – Bet Now
Malahat is struggling to find his best form but we’re giving him one more chance. The five-year-old won at Tamworth earlier this preparation at odds of $50, so the ability is still there.
The former Sydney runner has won over $267,000 to date and is facing a field that is there for the taking.
Punters should get value odds for Malahat.
Race 5. (14:17) BRC Membership Renewal BM78 (2000m)
#12 – Brando – Bet Now
Tony Haydon lines up Brando, which comes into this race having won at Eagle Farm as a $40 shot.
The five-year-old could score back-to-back wins with some luck from a wide barrier and we’re sticking with him.
He rises only slightly in grade and there are no superstars in this field, so he could take advantage and provide punters with value again.
Race 6. (14:57) Kirin BM90 (1050m)
#3 – Piracy @ $11 – Bet Now
Value is with Piracy at the double-figure odds following his win at Eagle Farm. The five-year-old led throughout the 1000m race and rising up 50m isn’t going to hurt his chances.
The former Sydney-based runner has experience against quality fields and although yet to register a win or placing at Doomben, he could turn that around here.
He is worth backing at the price and those odds could drop.
Race 7. (15:37) Tab Long May We Play Handicap (1200m)
#8 – Maozi @ $4.40 – Bet Now
Maozi has plenty of talent and although beaten at her last two starts, she has been taking on highly talented fields.
The former Victorian made good ground at Doomben last start and having that track experience holds her in good stead for this race.
She is drawn ideally in barrier two and carrying 55.5kg should see her fighting out the finish.
Race 8. (16:13) Moet & Chandon 0MW (1350m)
#10 – Arthur in Charge @ $4.40 – Bet Now
Chris Munce lines up the three-year-old gelding that battled strongly last start and punters should take encouragement from that effort.
He is rarely too far away from the prize and with 11 starts for three wins and four placings, Arthur in Charge could be in charge on Saturday.
$4.40 is a respectable price and he represents value.
Race 9. (16:49) Bneraces Handicap (1600m)
#1 – Stuttering @ $6.50 – Bet Now
Stuttering continues to fight gamely and win races, which is why he goes on top for the final race on the card.
He is a winner of five races from 11 starts and he has placed in another five races. That is a good record for a young horse and it should continue to improve.
Drawing barrier 14 makes it harder but he is good enough to overcome any bad luck.
