Doomben horse racing tips & form
Race 1. (13:18) 4 Aussie Heroes Foundation Maiden (1110m)
#2 – Capital Tower – Bet @ Sportsbet
Capital Tower looked the goods when winning a trial at Eagle Farm and that form stacks up nicely on debut.
The two-year-old only narrowly won by a nose, but being from the Tony Gollan stable is ideal, so punters should expect a quality effort.
Barrier three is ideal, so watch for a market push.
Race 2. (13:53) Drs Project Maiden (1640m)
#11 – Kittykittybangbang – Bet @ Sportsbet
Kittykittybangbang owns two placings from her last three starts and the four-year-old deserves a win.
The Chris Munce-trained four-year-old ran third at Eagle Farm last start behind Enterprise Mia, which is a solid form guide.
Barrier 12 is our only worry, but she should handle it over this distance.
Race 3. (14:28) 4 Aussie Heroes Foundation Maiden (1640m)
#1 – Ashgrove – Bet @ Sportsbet
Ashgrove has recorded consecutive third placings from two starts, so he’s getting close to breaking through.
The three-year-old colt by Dundeel was only 1.2 lengths behind the winner last start and he should improve on that position.
Punters should be confident of a big effort.
Race 4. (15:03) Jordan Allen C1 Handicap (1050m)
#2 – Debussy – Bet @ Sportsbet
A winner on debut before running seventh at Gold Coast, Debussy could return to his best form on Wednesday.
The three-year-old colt won at odds of $1.75 on debut at Eagle Farm and although beaten last start, it came behind Subterranean and subsequent group winner Ranch Hand.
He has won two trials to prepare for this race, so we’re confident he can return a winner.
Race 5. (15:38) 4 Aussie Heroes Foundation C1 (1050m)
#9 – Single Memo – Bet @ Sportsbet
Single Memo hasn’t done anything wrong from two career starts, including a win on debut at Eagle Farm.
The three-year-old filly by Not a Single Doubt scored by 2.3 lengths before finishing second behind Blackjack Boom as a $1.50 favourite.
She gets the inside draw and a 2kg claimer to ride, so everything is in her favour.
Race 6. (16:13) Sky Racing C4 Handicap (1640m)
#4 – Danezel – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Robert Heathcote-trained five-year-old has been in consistent form this season, including a win at Doomben in September.
He scored an emphatic three-length victory and he has followed it up with two placings from three starts. The son of Sizzling wasn’t far behind the winner last start and that was a strong but small field.
2kg comes off his back, which could make the difference.
Race 7. (16:48) Tab Venue Mode Handicap (1200m)
#4 – Coat of Arms – Bet @ Sportsbet
Coat of Arms is looking to go back-to-back after scoring at Gold Coast in heavy conditions last time out.
The four-year-old son of I Am Invincible has yet to win from three attempts at this distance, but he has placed twice.
Having Robbie Fradd in the saddle is a bonus.
Race 8. (17:25) XXXX Dry BM68 (1350m)
#3 – The Driller – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Driller owns a win and two placings from three starts this preparation, so he’s the form runner of the field.
He scored narrowly at Gold Coast two back before running second at Sunshine Coast behind Smooth Move last time out. That form is good enough for this level of racing.
Punters should get each-way odds on race day.
