Doomben horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (12:33) Tab Venue Mode Maiden (1350m)
#1 – Jakkalberry Finn – Bet @ Sportsbet
The David Vandyke-trained four-year-old made a positive start to his career when finishing second on debut at Sunshine Coast.
He was only a nose behind the winner in a field of 16, so he should love this level of opposition and be tough to hold out.
Rising in distance holds no fears and we’re expecting a big run.
Race 2. (13:08) Mullins Lawyers Maiden (1350m)
#6 – Kipchoge – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kipchoge has been backed and beaten numerous times, but we’re sticking with the three-year-old.
He owns four placings from seven starts and although only battling at Eagle Farm last start, he’s much better suited to this contest.
Getting a 3kg claimer in the saddle is ideal, so consider.
Race 3. (13:43) Alcyone Hotel & Residences Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Warrior Hero – Bet @ Sportsbet
Warrior Hero comes off a win at Sunshine Coast where he got the better of Jakkalberry Finn, so Race 1 could be a good form guide.
The Freedman-trained colt showed good speed throughout before holding off a late charge, so that should do him plenty of good.
Punters should expect him to start as favourite.
Race 4. (14:18) National Jockey Trust C1 (1350m)
#5 – Le Heros – Bet @ Sportsbet
Le Heros comes off a tidy effort for fourth at Gold Coast and that followed a win on this track in February.
The Duncan-trained three-year-old is rarely out of the mix and his maiden win on this track came by over four lengths, so he’s classy at best.
3kg comes off his back and that should see him run close.
Race 5. (14:53) Sky Racing BM68 (2020m)
#9 – Palaszczuk – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Michael Costa-trained three-year-old scored a maiden win at Gold Coast three back and we’re giving her another chance.
Her last two starts haven’t resulted in much, but she faced harder fields than what she runs against on Wednesday.
Punters should get value odds and running with 54kg on her back helps.
Race 6. (15:28) Ranvet National Apprentice C3 (1200m)
#2 – Hidden Hail – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Barry Lockwood-trained four-year-old has rattled off three wins from his last four starts and only the wide draw is a concern.
He has finished in the first two in six of his seven career starts, so he is a professional thoroughbred with a bright future.
Getting a 3kg claimer helps and we’re expecting a big run.
Race 7. (16:03) Spirit of Boom C4 Handicap (1615m)
#6 – Sacred Suite – Bet @ Sportsbet
Sacred Suite is taking his time to get back to winning form, but his recent form bodes well.
The Chris Waller-trained four-year-old has figured in the finish in seven of his 13 starts, which includes two wins.
55kg on his back is ideal and although punters are getting frustrated, this race is there for the taking.
Race 8. (16:34) Mount Franklin BM75 (1350m)
#10 – Hard Labour – Bet @ Sportsbet
Hard Labour owns four wins from seven starts and there was nothing wrong with her run at Eagle Farm last time out.
The four-year-old finished fifth behind Fender and Garibaldi, which is Saturday-level form. She is unbeaten at Doomben and she could be the best of the card.
Punters should expect a short price from bookmakers.
