Doomben horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:37) Mount Franklin C3 Plate (1110m)
#5 – Howwonderfullifeis @ $1.60 – Bet Now
Punters have to take the short odds around this runner but she should have too much class for them. The three-year-old filly ran fourth in a tough race last start and this is a step down in class.
Her win prior came at Gold Coast and although she is yet to win at Doomben, she should be able to handle this field with ease.
The $1.60 is short but worth taking.
Race 2. (12:12) Tab Long May We Play C6 (1200m)
#3 – Hold The Line @ $2 – Bet Now
The David Vandyke-trained mare finished eighth last start but it came against quality opposition and this is a drop in class.
She is a four-time winner that looks well-placed to win and punters have come for her in the early markets.
Race 3. (12:47) Roku Gin BM80 (2200m)
#10 – Champagne Vega @ $9.50 – Bet Now
Champagne Vega is getting close to a win after posting five consecutive placings. The four-year-old gelding has been threatening to win at a good price and he runs at good odds again.
The $9.50 is a fair price against this level of opposition and he runs his best races over this distance.
55kg on the back helps and senior rider Jim Byrne is in the saddle.
Race 4. (13:22) BRC Members BM90 (1615m)
#7 – Milk Man @ $2.75 – Bet Now
The Milk Man could deliver this Saturday after going close at his last two starts. He was unlucky not to win two starts back before running second behind Gresham last start.
He is becoming an expensive proposition for punters but he owns the ability and he gets conditions to suit.
We’re prepared to give him one more chance to show his best form.
Race 5. (13:57) Mitavite The Phoenix (1615m)
#3 – Outburst @ $3.70 – Bet Now
The Paul Messara-trained two-year-old got off the mark at Scone and he could rise through the grades.
He scored by a half-length after hitting the line with purpose and he should get every chance from a good barrier.
Most of the early money has come his way and the son of Real Impact could win again.
Race 6. (14:37) Gallopers Sports Club BM75 (1350m)
#11 – Maozi @ $2.90 – Bet Now
Maozi lost no admirers when running second behind Command’n’conquer last start and she should go well again here.
The Edmonds-trained three-year-old came from Melbourne with good form and it sits well in Queensland. She scored nicely at Gold Coast two back and a return to winning form looks likely.
$2.90 is a good price and it should shorten come race day.
Race 7. (15:17) Ascot Green Handicap (1200m)
#9 – Euro Belle @ $9.50 – Bet Now
Euro Belle represents good value after finishing fourth at Gold Coast last start. The three-year-old filly scored a win at Sunshine Coast in October and hasn’t been far away since.
She is a daughter of Eurozone that gets into this race nicely with 55kg and James Orman takes the ride.
Each-way odds available and they are worth taking.
Race 8. (15:52) Souths Sports Club Handicap (1200m)
#3 – Iced @ $5 – Bet Now
Iced is coming off consecutive second placings and he is good enough to beat this field. He has finished in the money in 12 of his 13 starts, so that consistency has rewarded punters.
Drawing barrier 12 isn’t ideal but the son of More Than Ready is likely to get back and storm home late.
He opened at $5.50 and money has already started to come.
Race 9. (16:36) Tab Long May We Play Handicap (1110m)
#11 – Jami Lady @ $5 – Bet Now
Jami Lady scored a narrow win at Eagle Farm last start and she is a two-time winner with a run under her belt.
The daughter of Spirit of Boom owns six wins from 18 starts and she looks a good chance to add another to her record.
The light weight on her back will only help her chances.
