Doomben free tips & form
Race 1. (12:02) TAB C3 Plate (1050m)
#4 – Sanglier – Bet Now
Sanglier got his new campaign off to a good start with a handy third placing at Eagle Farm.
The Matthew Dunn-trained four-year-old looked good last campaign when winning by over seven lengths at Murwillumbah and backing that up with a win at Ipswich.
Yet to run well in two attempts at Doomben, but punters should expect a turnaround in form.
Race 2. (12:38) Gallopers Membership 0MW (2020m)
#3 – Pleased – Bet Now
Pleased isn’t the most consistent type running around but the six-year-old does have winning claims here.
The son of Street Cry was a winner at Ipswich two starts back by a nose before running sixth on this track last start.
Drawn to get every chance in this off the inside barrier and with only 55kg on his back, he should be competitive in an even field.
Race 3. (13:13) Gallopers Sports Club BM70 (1350m)
#9 – Mr Storm – Bet Now
Mr Storm got the job done nicely at Gold Coast last start and it could go back-to-back.
The Laming-trained five-year-old took his record to three wins and four placings from 15 starts, which is pretty handy in this grade.
He ran as the odds-on favourite when last on track but punters should expect to get a better each-way price in this.
Race 4. (13:48) Souths Sports Club Handicap (1200m)
#1 – The Odyssey – Bet Now
Class is with The Odyssey, which has over $500,000 in the bank and looks awfully tough to beat against this field.
The Kelly Schweida-trained three-year-old has won four of his eight career starts and the colt has a nice future ahead of him.
His only defeats have come behind the likes of Exhilarates and Guntantes, which is red-hot form for a race like this.
Wide draw but punters will likely have to take the shorts.
Race 5. (14:23) Souths 2 For 1 Meal Deal Handicap (1350m)
#4 – The Avenger – Bet Now
The Avenger was hitting the line with real power last start and that holds him in good stead for this.
Chris Waller lines up the six-year-old by Smart Missile, which will enjoy the inside barrier and also carrying only 55.5kg.
He has finished in the money in 17 of his 32 starts and that record shouldn’t be overlooked.
Race 6. (14:58) Gallopers Members Draw Handicap (1200m)
#1 – Gem of Scotland – Bet Now
Gem of Scotland showed just how tough a filly she is when winning at Doomben fresh up last start.
The Rex Lipp-trained three-year-old extended her winning record to five wins from seven starts and she has been taking on tough opposition.
She owns a serious turn-of-foot and although up in weight for this, she has the clear class edge over this handicap field.
Race 7. (15:37) Memberships @ BRC C6 (1110m)
#11 – Tambo’s Mate – Bet Now
Tambo’s Mate has to be respected in this race after winning by 1.8 lengths at Sunshine Coast last start.
The Stuart Kendrick-trained four-year-old has now won four of his seven starts and although he produces the odd poor effort, he’s classy at best.
If he’s able to find the front from barrier two, he’s going to be tough to run down. Expect jockey Matthew McGillivray to be positive from the barriers and ensure a good run from in front.
Race 8. (16:17) BRC Spring Racing Carnival Handicap (1110m)
#2 – Meet Mr Taylor – Bet Now
Another top-line thoroughbred lines up here with Meet Mr Taylor.
The Schweida-trained gelding has won eight of his 10 starts and he dug deep to score at skinny odds last time out.
It was a nice resuming effort following the spell and despite drawing wide in barrier 14 for this, he owns very good barrier speed.
Bookmakers might offer better odds because of that draw, but they should be snapped up early in the betting.
Race 9. (16:57) BRC C6 Handicap (1615m)
#6 – Six Stigma – Bet Now
Six Stigma has found winning form having taken his last two from three starts.
The Tony Gollan-trained five-year-old has finished in the money in 10 of his 14 starts and another top effort should be expected here.
There isn’t depth to this field and he could take advantage of that.
