Doomben horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:47) XXXX Dry 0MW (1200m)
#3 – Lasting Kiss – Bet @ Sportsbet
Shooting for four consecutive wins is Lasting Kiss, who scored a tough win at Lismore last time out.
The Lee-trained daughter of Real Impact owns four wins and three second placings from seven starts, so she is consistent and capable of beating this field.
She won her only attempt at Doomben, so she goes on top.
Race 2. (12:22) Springsocial BM72 (2020m)
#4 – Rapaport – Bet @ Sportsbet
Rapaport is unbeaten after two starts following a win in New Zealand and a win at Gold Coast by a nose last time out.
The five-year-old son of Shamexpress rises in distance and that is ideal. He won over 2200m across the Tasman, so the rise from 1800m to 2020m suits.
We’re not expecting bookmakers to offer big odds.
Race 3. (12:58) Sky Racing BM90 (2020m)
#1 – London Banker – Bet @ Sportsbet
Winning four consecutive races is never easy, but we have been impressed with London Banker and he should go well again.
The six-year-old is a seven-time winner overall, and he is unbeaten in two starts at Doomben. His most recent win came against a nice field, so that form bodes well.
Barrier two is ideal and conditions suit.
Race 4. (13:33) Tab Quality (1350m)
#1 – Prince of Boom – Bet @ Sportsbet
The fresh up run from Prince of Boom was too bad to be true. He finished 2.8 lengths behind Startantes, but he never looked like a winning hope.
It wasn’t the same Prince of Boom we saw win twice last season, but we’re prepared to give him another chance at this level.
The betting will be a good sign, so keep an eye on markets.
Race 5. (14:08) Spring Ladies Raceday C3 (1615m)
#1 – Achiever – Bet @ Sportsbet
Achiever didn’t fire fresh up, but he is always better for the run. The Chris Waller-trained gelding has faced harder fields than this, including a win at Rosehill three starts back.
Anything close to that effort sees him winning this race, which is wide open. He followed that run with a fourth at Eagle Farm, which is another good form race.
Look for juicy odds with bookmakers.
Race 6. (14:48) Bundaberg Rum Doomben Mile (1615m)
#2 – Ballistic Boy @ $2.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The five-year-old is always tough to beat and that was a tidy winning effort at Doomben last start.
He scored by a nose in a driving finish, which will only put him in good stead with a run under his belt.
Three of his wins have come at Doomben and at the distance, so punters should be confident of another top effort.
Race 7. (15:27) Well Groomed Racing 0MW (1200m)
#3 – Rebel Salute @ $3.10 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Rebel Salute ran second at Ipswich fresh up before winning at Doomben by 2.5 lengths on a heavy track.
The five-year-old is a four-time winner and six-time placegetter from 12 starts, so punters have every reason to jump on the $3.10.
We expect those odds to firm throughout the week.
Race 8. (16:07) R.M. Williams Quality (1110m)
#6 – You Make Me Smile @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The seven-year-old gelding has yet to win from four attempts at this distance, but we wouldn’t be ruling him out.
He is a seven-time winner overall, and carrying the light weight is ideal. He also gets the inside barrier, so punters shouldn’t overlook the $5.50 odds.
The $2 to place is also worth locking in.
Race 9. (16:43) Mount Franklin C6 Plate (1350m)
#10 – Dreamreacher @ $3.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Dreamreacher is a consistent six-year-old who has missed a win or placing only once from 13 career starts.
It has every chance of finishing in the money again, and punters have come for it in the early betting markets.
The $3.80 is fair price, so include.
