Doomben horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (14:25) Anzac Day Races 25 April Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Mishani Rebel – Bet Now
Mishani Rebel was too good for them at Gold Coast last start and rising from 900m to 1200m shouldn’t be an issue.
The son of Jet Spur had taken on tough opposition at his first two runs, and dropping back in grade worked the oracle last month. We’re expecting another top effort and he could pay each-way odds in the first.
Race 2. (15:03) Caleb Trust Maiden (1350m)
#5 – Adelase – Bet Now
Adelase is coming off a tidy second placing at Sunshine Coast, and she should be better prepared for this race. The Barry Baldwin-trained filly handled the heavy conditions well, and although she was six lengths behind the winner, it was a good effort.
Seeing jockey Mark du Plessis retain the ride is a positive and with only 55.5kg on her back, we’re expecting her to be finishing off stylishly once again.
Race 3. (15:38) Family Raceday 4 April BM65 (2040m)
#12 – Corsini – Bet Now
The Matthew Dunn-trained mare owns five wins and her most recent came in January when scoring at Gold Coast.
She rose on grade two starts back and felt the pinch, but her run for fourth last start was much better and staying in BM65 grade is ideal.
Getting the inside draw should be enough to see her fighting out the finish.
Race 4. (16:13) Olivia’s Raceday 28 March C4 (1050m)
#2 – Starvirgo – Bet Now
Four-year-old gelding Starvirgo didn’t win last campaign but his overall form reads extremely well for this race. The former Victorian finished behind the likes of All Cylinders, Rebel Miss, and I Am Incredible.
Since heading to the Robert Heathcote stable, he has won two trials. The most recent was a 3.8-length win at Eagle Farm, and we’re confident that will translate to race day.
He could run over the odds with bookmakers, so anything above $2 is value.
Race 5. (16:48) Pink Picnic 19th April BM70 (1640m)
#9 – Fairy Me Home – Bet Now
It always pays to take notice of Chris Waller-trained runners and Fairy Me Home showed why last start. The four-year-old made an immediate impact in Queensland when scoring at Sunshine Coast.
His racing prior had come in New South Wales, where he won once from 12 starts. However, he has been consistent throughout his career and he could go back-to-back.
He gets the inside draw and Robbie Fradd takes the ride.
Race 6. (17:23) Ranvet C2 Handicap (1200m)
#5 – Fisticuffs – Bet Now
Team Edmonds lines up the talented gelding that owns two wins and two placings from five starts. The son of Redoute’s Choice won at skinny odds last campaign, including wins at odds of $1.18 and $1.67.
Punters should get better odds here, but after winning at trial at Gold Coast, he’ll likely be an odds-on quote.
It’s another top ride for Robbie Fradd.
Race 7. (17:58) Tab Handicap (1350m)
#12 – Iamican – Bet Now
Iamican owns a win and a placing from four starts, which is good enough form for this race. The three-year-old filly won by a length at Sunshine Coast two back, before running second at Gold Coast.
Her only run at Eagle Farm was disappointing, but it came against a hot field, so that run should be given some merit.
With only 54kg on her back, we’re expecting a return to winning form.
Race 8. (18:33) National Jockeys Trust BM68 (1350m)
#3 – Plenty – Bet Now
Plenty is another Waller-trained runner that has moved from Sydney to the Sunshine State. The gelding didn’t fire at Doomben last start, but he should find this race more to his liking.
He’s good enough to give another chance, so include him in selections at each-way odds.
