Doomben horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:13) Tulloch House Maiden (1110m)
#1 – Global Citizen – Bet Now
The three-year-old colt by I Am Invincible produced a nice effort on debut at Ipswich. He finished a half-length behind the winner and the form out of that race stacks up well.
Drawing an inside barrier against the big field is ideal and he should be well-backed on race day. We’re expecting a top effort and he should break maidens soon.
Race 2. (11:48) Lexus Handicap (1350m)
#3 – Uncomplicated – Bet Now
The drop back in distance might not suit Uncomplicated, but he could rise through the grades nicely.
He scored an upset win on debut before running third behind Sizzlepel last week. He made good ground late over 1400m and he’s a 2000m horse in the making.
It’s only a small field so he should settle closer and give punters a sight.
Race 3. (12:23) Millers Swim School Maiden (1600m)
#7 – Valet – Bet Now
After back-to-back second placings, it’s about time Valet got home first. The Tony Gollan-trained gelding went close as the favourite at Sunshine Coast and there’s plenty to like about that run.
The son of Not a Single Doubt is in good hands for this run and from barrier five, he’s going to get a nice drag into the race.
Expect money to come for him on race day.
Race 4. (12:58) Roku Gin C3 Plate (1050m)
#6 – Shooting Love – Bet Now
Shooting Love has had nine starts for three wins and three placings. She has had plenty of experience for only a three-year-old and that holds her in good stead.
Her most recent run came in December when she was outclassed behind Alligator Blood, but that’s Group 1 form and it must be respected.
Punters should get nice odds.
Race 5. (13:37) Thank Healthcare Workers Handicap (2000m)
#6 – Kings Full – Bet Now
Kings Full looks to have more ability than most in this race and he’s coming off a win at Gold Coast. He defeated a solid field and although not as experienced as some of these, he has upside.
He has finished in the money in 12 of his 16 starts, so the consistency is there. Two placings have come at Doomben and with 55kg on his back, he gets in nicely on the weights.
Race 6. (14:17) XXXX Dry BM90 (1600m)
#4 – Milk Man – Bet Now
Punters are patiently waiting for Milk Man to show some form. The former European showed ability overseas but has yet to win in Australia.
However, he meets an even field here and the six-year-old should be able to get every chance with 55.5kg on his back.
Watch for any positive betting moves.
Race 7. (14:57) Tab Plate (1200m)
#1 – The Odyssey – Bet Now
Class is on the side of The Odyssey, which has won seven of his 16 starts. The three-year-old colt has been busy this season and he’s coming off consecutive wins.
Kelly Schweida lines up the son of Better than Ready that scored by 1.8 lengths last start and he should have the class edge on this field.
We’re expecting bookmakers to have him safe in the betting.
Race 8. (15:37) Racecourse Village C6 Plate (1200m)
#1 – All Important – Bet Now
All Important got back to winning form last start at Doomben and that bodes well for a good run here. The five-year-old won his sixth race from 26 starts and there’s nothing wrong with that record.
Three of those wins have come on this track and although he rises up in weight a touch, he deserves attention.
Race 9. (16:17) Bernborough Ascot BM78 (1350m)
#4 – Coral Bay – Bet Now
Coral Bay is a horse worth sticking with and he should pay a nice price here. The Stuart Kendrick-trained gelding is rarely too far away from the prize and that was evident last week.
He finished close behind the winner and with more luck in running, he should be able to go close once again.
