Doomben horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (14:27) Paddyfest 14 March Maiden Plate (1350m)
#4 – Hard Currency – Bet Now
Hard Currency ran fifth on debut at Gold Coast and we could see immediately improvement. The three-year-old has since had a trial and ran third, so that form is going to stack up nicely for this race.
It’s not an overly tough field and with a senior rider in the saddle, he should be fighting out the finish at each-way odds.
Race 2. (15:03) Moet & Chandon Chairman’s Maiden (1350m)
#9 – Beachbreak – Bet Now
Beachbreak is getting closer to a win after posting four placings from eight career starts. The three-year-old filly went close at Doomben last start and the form out of that race should stack up nicely.
She’s trained by Team Edmonds and with Robbie Fradd in the saddle, we’re expecting the results to start coming her way. She gets only 55kg on her back, which is going to help.
Race 3. (15:38) Souths Sports Club Maiden (1110m)
#4 – Sunlander – Bet Now
The form of Sunlander might not read that well, but he’s a quality type that should break through soon. He is coming off a good run for third at Sunshine Coast, and that followed a strong effort on this track in January.
Drawing barrier 14 won’t do him any good here, but it should give punters a better price with bookmakers. He does need luck but he’s capable of springing the gates and settling in a handy position.
Race 4. (16:13) Memberships @ BRC C5 Handicap (1615m)
#2 – Ocean Waves – Bet Now
Ocean Waves should be respected against a field that doesn’t have much recent form. The four-year-old scored at Sunshine Coast by a half-length last start, which was a solid effort.
It was his third win from 10 starts and that’s a good record to take into a race like this. Ryan Maloney is coming off a Group 1 win on Alligator Blood and his confidence will be sky-high.
He looks like the best bet in this race.
Race 5. (16:48) Family Raceday 4 April C1 (1200m)
#3 – My Boy Sam – Bet Now
The three-year-old showed good speed during his first campaign, so we’re expecting something similar here. He scored his first win at Doomben in a strong maiden field and he backed that up with a closely-run fourth.
He has been tuned with a trial win last month and that should have him in good order for his return. A betting lead would be ideal for punters, but we’re confident that he has the goods to take this race out regardless.
Race 6. (17:23) BRC Events C1 Handicap (1200m)
#5 – Krakatoa Eruption – Bet Now
The four-year-old mare showed her explosive turn-of-foot when winning two starts ago and anything similar would see her winning ago. She won by 5.8 lengths at Gatton after leading throughout, and although beaten last start, she didn’t lose any admirers.
She tried to lead throughout the race again but was run down in the shadows of the post. It was a good effort up in grade and this race isn’t any harder. Stick with her here.
Race 7. (18:00) Tab BM65 (1615m)
#7 – Mother to Race Her – Bet Now
She’s no saint but she is handy on her day. The five-year-old isn’t the most consistent type running around but she did win two starts back at Murwillumbah.
Her most recent run came at Doomben where she was only 4.2 lengths behind the winner. Anything close to that run would see her running well again.
Punters should get each-way odds and they’re worth taking.
Race 8. (18:40) Gallopers Sports Club C3 (1350m)
#5 – Rest of the World – Bet Now
Matthew Dunn lines up the four-year-old that has plenty of ability and could show it on Wednesday. The four-year-old won by a length last start and it was a nice effort after getting well back throughout the run.
His best form is good enough to race at higher levels than this, so put him on top and watch for any market leads.
