The Group 1 action might be at Flemington and Randwick, but Doomben has some quality racing in the Sunshine State.
Nine races on the card this Saturday and we have free tips, form and odds for every race at Doomben.
Doomben free tips & form
Race 1. (12:27) Lazy Yak C3 Plate (1615m)
#7 – Drumadoir @ $4 – Bet Now
The four-year-old mare has finished first or second in seven of her 10 starts and that includes a last start win at Sunshine Coast.
Prior to that she ran a quality second placing at Eagle Farm and although she has never been tried at Doomben, the track should suit nicely.
Senior rider in the saddle helps and punters are getting nice odds.
Race 2. (13:02) Stav, Abby & Matt BM90 (2200m)
#5 – Vaucluse Bay @ $5 – Bet Now
Chris Waller’s former Sydney stayers have been running well in Queensland this season and Vaucluse Bay fits the bill nicely.
The four-time winner should have won more in Sydney but he ran into some nice types and although beaten last start at Doomben, his run for second had merit.
Having another run on this track is ideal and he should be fighting out the finish. Nice odds on offer for punters.
Race 3. (13:37) IPG The Emerald Jewel Prelude (1200m)
#1 – The Odyssey @ $3.90 – Bet Now
12th in the Magic Millions but that was to be expected and this is a much easier target. The two-year-old colt looked good prior to that when running third at the Gold Coast.
He was a back-to-back winner on this track before that run and one of those wins came by over three lengths. That shows he has enough ability to win and he can return to form in this.
Race 4. (14:12) Winning Edge Quartz Jewel Prelude (1200m)
#5 – Perudo @ $2.50 – Bet Now
Tony Gollan lines up the two-year-old filly by Spirit of Boom, which scored by four lengths on debut and punters should take plenty of confidence from that run.
She was the $1.31 favourite on that occasion and she didn’t beat much in the process, but the early signs are good and the small field should suit nicely.
Tough field but the $2.50 is a fair price.
Race 5. (14:52) G.H. Mumm Ruby Jewel Prelude (1200m)
#1 – Mishani Hustler @ $2.70 – Bet Now
Winner of five from nine and four of those have come at Doomben. The Ben Currie-trained three-year-old was too tough against a similar field last start and we’re expecting that form to stack up nicely.
Taylor Marshall returns to the saddle having won three in a row aboard the colt and that’s going to make him tough to beat in this.
Drifting in the betting but he will likely firm come race day.
Race 6. (15:32) Tatt’s Members’ Cup (1615m)
#5 – Xebec @ $3.90 – Bet Now
Another former Sydney runner for Chris Waller which ran 2.3 lengths behind Sword of Justice last start and he’s capable of turning the tables here.
The seven-year-old scored consecutive wins on this track around this time last year and although he hasn’t won since April, his resuming run for fourth last start was a good effort.
Has form second up and should go well.
Race 7. (16:12) Stella Artois BM75 (1110m)
#15 – Linlithgow @ $3.10 – Bet Now
Talented and lightly-tried mare which has won three of her five career starts as a five-year-old. Trained by Toby Edmonds, the Drumbeats mare scored by 1.3 lengths at her only Doomben run and that will see her go close here.
Her most recent run wasn’t overly impressive and she does need a few trials to get fit, but she had a nice trial placing coming into this and there is confidence in the market.
Race 8. (16:47) Weddings At Tatt’s Club Cup (1200m)
#1 – Cannyescent @ $34 – Bet Now
We’re not sure what has happened to this once promising sprinter which ran second behind Hey Doc at Flemington in 2017, but he has been taken away from the Lindsay Park stables and is now running in Queensland.
He’s a talented gelding which also ran fourth behind Whispering Brook. His form at Doomben includes two placings from three starts and the $34 could be worth taking.
Past his best but there’s value with the odds.
Race 9. (17:27) Hit105 Handicap (1350m)
#3 – Langhro @ $4.40 – Bet Now
Didn’t lose any admirers when running second behind Curdled last start. He was only just beaten on the line and with three runs under his belt this preparation, he looks a good bet in the final race on the card.
The former Victorian is rarely too far away from the prize and punters are getting good each-way odds with the six-year-old gelding.
