Doomben horse racing tips
Race 1. (11:48) Tab Long May We Play BM75 (1200m)
#5 – Golden Mean – Bet Now
David Vandyke lines up the five-year-old mare that runs best fresh up, but her form stacks up nicely for this race.
She is a four-time winner from only eight starts and she is coming off a gutsy win at Ipswich where she had to dig deep.
She is unbeaten at this distance and another win looks likely.
Race 2. (12:23) Bro-Like Nowhere Else Handicap (1600m)
#4 – Miss Cabaret – Bet Now
Miss Cabaret finished off stylishly to win on debut at Gold Coast and she could remain unbeaten.
The Michael Costa-trained three-year-old was coming off a trial win to prepare for that race, so there is plenty of ability in the legs.
The rise in class shouldn’t worry her too much and punters could get value odds on race day.
Race 3. (12:58) Mount Franklin C3 Plate (1350m)
#8 – Starla – Bet Now
Starla has been a model of consistency this year and the Chris Waller-trained mare is worth sticking with.
She owns two wins and two placings this preparation, with one of those wins coming at Doomben three starts back.
There are many nice types in this field but she races well here and the daughter of Snitzel could score a minor upset.
Race 4. (13:33) XXXX Dry 1MW (1350m)
#5 – See Me Exceed – Bet Now
See Me Exceed is a four-win mare that is coming off a tidy effort at Gold Coast. She scored by 2.3 lengths and although rising in class now, she scored easily.
The daughter of Sebring drops in weight to 54kg and that could be the winning difference on Saturday. She hasn’t carried that weight for a long time, so stick with her at each-way odds.
Race 5. (14:08) Cascade C6 Handicap (1600m)
#3 – Cloak – Bet Now
Cloak has won his last three races and the five-year-old looks a good chance of winning again.
The Vandyke-trained runner scored by a length at Doomben last start and has since been primed with a soft trial.
That was his first start at Doomben and he came through it with flying colours. It’s a good sign and drawing the inside barrier adds to his appeal.
Race 6. (14:43) Millers Swim School Quality (1200m)
#6 – Malahide @ $2.80 – Bet Now
Malahide is a proven fresh-up performer, with three wins from four attempts. The Costa-trained mare is a four-time winner and all four wins came at this distance.
She enters this race with an impressive record and dropping down in weight to 54kg is ideal. That should see her finishing the race with plenty of power.
The $2.80 should hold steady throughout the week.
Race 7. (15:22) The Village Kitchen Ascot BM72 (1600m)
#3 – Superbowl Sunday – Bet Now
Superbowl Sunday is coming off an upset win at Doomben and he is capable of producing the goods again.
The Chris Munce-trained five-year-old has won two of his last three starts, and he always goes well at Doomben.
Punters will be getting value odds again and they are worth taking.
Race 8. (16:02) Tab Long May We Play Handicap (1050m)
#2 – Spirit One – Bet Now
The Sears-trained filly brings in good form lines and she should be respected with bookmakers.
She is a daughter of Spirit of Boom that finished third behind The Drinks Cart at Gold Coast in May. That form is top-quality for this race and she only needs luck from the draw.
Alex Patis takes weight off her back and that will help over this distance.
Race 9. (16:38) BRC Spring Carnival BM75 (1200m)
#2 – Snowzone – Bet Now
Snowzone is a five-win gelding that owns three wins and two placings at Doomben. The four-year-old scored on this track three back and a repeat of that effort would take him close.
He is a son of Snitzel that rarely puts in a bad run and against this quality of opposition, his chances shouldn’t be overlooked.
Bookmakers will offer each-way odds.
