Doomben horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:42) Tab Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Clairvue Star – Bet Now
Chris Waller lines up the two-year-old gelding that scored impressively on debut. The win came at Doomben on a heavy track, and he looks a better chance on firmer footing.
The son of Sebring was able to sit on the speed and provide a good kick in the straight, which will help him win many more races.
Drawing wide doesn’t help, but respect his ability.
Race 2. (13:22) Millers Swim School BM70 (2200m)
#9 – Lady Solerno – Bet Now
Corsini looked the winner last start after looming to win, but she had to settle for third. The six-year-old is in good form after scoring a win earlier this year.
She followed that up with a couple of good placings, and that form should hold her in good stead for this race.
Carrying 55kg should bring her right into contention.
Race 3. (14:02) Mount Franklin Handicap (2200m)
#5 – Raqeeq – Bet Now
Raqeeq could have easily made it three consecutive wins last start, but he had to settle for second. The Waller-trained gelding missed by a nose, but take nothing away from the performance.
He’s a five-time winner, with all but one of those coming in Sydney. His form this campaign has been excellent and he’s going to love dropping in weight to 55kg.
Punters should be able to get each-way odds.
Race 4. (14:42) Lexus BM70 (1600m)
#11 – La Jument – Bet Now
La Jument took six years to get to the track and after consecutive wins to kick things off, he was entitled to get tired last start.
The son of Fastnet Rock got tired late at Eagle Farm last Saturday, but take nothing away from his performance. He won his first two races in 2020, and he clearly has class.
An apprentice takes the ride here and the weight off his back helps.
Race 5. (15:22) XXXX Dry C6 Plate (1050m)
#9 – Love You Lucy – Bet Now
Love You Lucy was good enough to win five of her six starts when last in work. She scored many of those wins at Toowoomba, but she notched a last-start win at Eagle Farm.
Her two starts at Doomben haven’t resulted in any wins or placings, and drawing barrier 14 hurts, but she’s worth sticking with.
With fresh up form of three starts for a win and a placing, she should go close.
Race 6. (16:02) Chandon BM78 (1350m)
#3 – Sienna Rose – Bet Now
The four-year-old didn’t fire fresh up at Eagle Farm, but we’re prepared to give her another chance.
She is a five-time winner from 20 starts, which also includes seven placings. That record can’t be overlooked, and her form at this track bodes well.
Sienna Rose has had six starts at Doomben for a win and four placings. She goes into the mix because of that.
Race 7. (16:42) Kirin 0MW (1200m)
#5 – Weboughtazou – Bet Now
Punters got the cash when Weboughtazou won at Sunshine Coast last start. The four-year-old has finished in the money in 12 of his 16 starts, which is a great start to his career.
The son of Zoustar scored by 1.5 lengths last time out after sitting on the speed, so we’re expecting similar racing tactics.
Drawing barrier three is ideal and it should run close.
Race 8. (17:18) Ascot Childcare & Kindy BM78 (1350m)
#5 – Lucky Prospector – Bet Now
He’s not the most consistent type running around, but Lucky Prospector is capable of turning his form around.
The son of Smart Strike is coming off a poor run at Eagle Farm where he finished eighth. However, he runs well at Doomben and drawing barrier two is ideal.
Punters should expect each-way odds.
Race 9. (18:00) Nuturf Handicap (1350m)
#7 – Command’n’conquer – Bet Now
He made a big impression when winning midweek last start, but he’ll be tested against this level of opposition.
The three-year-old won by 3.3 lengths and scored in commanding fashion at Doomben last start. He looks a nice type in the making and if he wins this race, he’ll be heading for bigger things.
