Doomben horse racing tips
Race 1. (13:23) Stella Artois C6 Handicap (1630m)
#4 – Destiny’s Own @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The six-year-old gelding is a five-time winner that hasn’t done much wrong from four starts this preparation.
He scored a win at Ipswich three back before notching placings on this track. The latest was a solid run behind some smart types, so he’s in good form and he looks ready to win again.
Race 2. (13:58) Winning Edge Doomben Plate (1050m)
#2 – Conexy @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Chris Waller lines up the two-year-old colt that did enough to finish second on debut at Doomben.
The son of Nicconi started as the favourite, so there was confidence with punters. Despite being defeated, he will learn from that run and it holds him in good stead for this.
Punters are getting fair odds for a talented type in the making.
Race 3. (14:33) G.H. Mumm BM72 (1050m)
#9 – Gin ‘n’ Bitters @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Gin ‘n’ Bitters has looked good winning three of her seven starts and she could add another to her record on Saturday.
The daughter of Sebring has yet to win from three starts at Doomben, but she hit the line nicely for second last time out.
That was a sound effort and she has every chance to go close.
Race 4. (15:08) Select Fire Systems Handicap (1630m)
#9 – Good Soize @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Good Soize ran third on debut Ipswich before improving nicely to score by 1.8 lengths at Sunshine Coast.
The Tony Gollan-trained filly sprinted away from the field late, which suggests that won’t be her last win this campaign.
A light weight on her back and every chance to win.
Race 5. (15:48) Leo Thomsen Memorial C3 Plate (1350m)
#8 – Beachbreak @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Beachbreak faces a much harder field than last start, but her win at Doomben had plenty of merit.
The Edmonds-trained four-year-old does her best racing on this track, with five starts for three wins and two placings.
She has every chance to figure in the money again and punters get each-way odds to enjoy.
Race 6. (16:28) Qld Fire And Emergency BM78 (2030m)
#11 – Populist @ $7.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Populist didn’t fire fresh up when finishing seventh, but he produced a much better run for second last start.
The five-year-old stepped up in distance and ran second behind Windermere. We are expecting that form to hold up well and although back in distance, he has form over the 2000m.
He won’t have to do much work off the inside draw, so put him on top.
Race 7. (17:08) Four Pines Pacific Ale C6 (1200m)
#11 – Baller @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Baller’s form line doesn’t reflect his ability and although struggling to win, we’re giving him another chance.
The Waller-trained gelding finished third at Doomben last start and he is facing much of the same opposition. He is good enough to turn the tables with the run under his belt.
Two of his four career wins have come at this distance, so keep him safe.
Race 8. (17:48) Sky Racing Tatts Recognition (1350m)
#1 – The Harrovian @ $4.60 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Harrovian continues to win and it would take a brave punter to back against the former Cairns-based runner.
He owns 15 wins from 28 starts and he is unbeaten in two starts since transferring to the Team Edmonds stable.
He was tough when beating Testashadow last start and that run is capable of being repeated.
Race 9. (18:25) Spirit of Boom Classic (1200m)
#4 – Jami Lady @ $8.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Value is with Jami Lady, which was only three lengths behind the winner last start and she improves with the run.
Her second-up form consists of four starts for three wins, so with that run under her belt, she should go close.
$8.50 for a seven-time winner is always good shopping.
