Doomben horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:48) Souths Sports Club BM70 (1110m)
#1 – Mort Doyle @ $4.20 – Bet Now
Mort Doyle has rattled off three consecutive wins and although facing a harder field here, he could be too quick for them.
The son of Denman won by 2.5 lengths at Doomben last start and he never gave them a chance. It was an impressive outing and punters should be confident of another good run.
The $4.20 odds are worth taking and he could get punters off to a good start.
Race 2. (12:23) Tab Long May We Play C2 (1200m)
#7 – Amiche @ $1.80 – Bet Now
Winning form is with Amiche, which has scored wins at her last four from four starts. The David Vandyke-trained mare won by over a length last start, and that came on this track.
She owns good tactical speed and being able to run down Ingear was a tremendous effort. It will strengthen her up nicely for this race and the short odds are justified.
Race 3. (12:58) Gallopers Sports Club BM80 (1200m)
#7 – Parko @ $4.80 – Bet Now
Parko scored from in front at Doomben last time out and we’re expecting similar tactics this time around.
The five-year-old gelding scored by a half-length over Snowzone, and although there is more depth to this field, he could handle it.
His opening odds of $7.50 were quickly taken, but punters are still getting value.
Race 4. (13:33) Tab Long May We Play Quality (1350m)
#1 – The Actuary @ $6.50 – Bet Now
There is little wrong with the form of The Actuary, so we suggest taking the $6.50 before those odds shorten.
The three-year-old filly has scored back-to-back wins at Doomben, including a 1.3-length victory in June. She hasn’t raced since, but she looked solid in a recent trial.
She likes Doomben and there is each-way value with The Actuary.
Race 5. (14:08) BRC Like Nowhere Else Handicap (1350m)
#7 – Snowzone @ $4.40 – Bet Now
Snowzone brings in good form to this race after finishing second behind Parko at Doomben.
The Kris Lees-trained gelding owns five wins and six placings from 21 starts, so he’s a consistent type with plenty of upside.
Three of his wins have come at Doomben and punters typically get value odds when he wins, which would be the case on Saturday.
Race 6. (14:48) BRC Carnival On Sale BM78 (1600m)
#9 – Top Me Up Again @ $5.50 – Bet Now
There is nothing wrong with the form from Top Me Up Again, and punters are getting better odds than expected.
The six-year-old weaved his way through the field to score at Eagle Farm last start, and he got the better of a quality field.
Drawing barrier two is ideal and a senior rider in the saddle helps.
Race 7. (15:27) Tab Brisbane Quality (1600m)
#6 – Supergiant @ $4.40 – Bet Now
The run of Supergiant last start was too bad to be true, so we’re giving him another chance.
Trained by Michael Costa, the four-year-old travelled wide, but never looked like getting into the race. However, he will be better for the run and his best form comes second-up.
Carrying 54kg for this race is ideal and he shouldn’t cover any extra ground from barrier four.
Race 8. (16:07) XXXX Dry Quality (1110m)
#1 – Alligator Blood @ $1.80 – Bet Now
It would take a brave punter to bet against Alligator Blood, given his record of nine wins from 12 starts.
The Group 1-winning four-year-old didn’t fire at his most recent effort, but he was bound to get tired at the end of a tough campaign.
$1.80 is a good price for punters and he should be around $1.50 on class alone.
Race 9. (16:43) Cascade Handicap (2000m)
#6 – Aliferous @ $3.40 – Bet Now
Aliferous is finding it tough to win races but she hasn’t been facing easy fields and this is a drop in class.
The Lees-trained mare ran third at Randwick two starts back, which was against quality opposition. She then ran third at Eagle Farm behind Kaonic, so it’s good form for this race.
$3.40 is a fair price and punters are getting value.
