EXPERT RACING TIPS: DOOMBEN

DOOMBEN PREVIEW AND TIPS | EXPERT TIPS | SATURDAY JULY 13TH 2024

RAIL: +0.5m entire TRACK: Soft 5

Best Bets

Linton Chataway

LAY: 2. Economics (WIN) for 1 unit (Rated at $7.00)

Has been disappointing so far this prep and although had excuses last start when wide the trip he faces a similar task here from the wide gate and I expect it will be too difficult for him to overcome.

Linton Chataway

BACK: 6. Invincible Shield (WIN) for 4 units (Rated at $1.50)

Getting short in the market now due to early scratchings, he looks extremely well placed here third up from a spell and dropping in weight. The figures produced have been impressive and he has looked like he has had more to offer at each start this prep.

5. Goodlucktome
1. Savour The Dream
6. River Rogue
2. Miss Trustful

Betting Strategy

BACK: 5. Goodlucktome (WIN) for 1 unit (Rated at $2.30)

Willing to forgive the last start performance where likely did not handle the heavy track. Gets an improving surface today and if can reproduce the debut performance he will be very hard to beat in this.

5. Brereton
4. Plundering
7. Mr Galazi
2. Economics

LAY: 2. Economics (WIN) for 1 unit (Rated at $7.00)

6. Invincible Shield
4. Bohemian Lad
1. Defiant Spirit
7. Allow Me

Betting Strategy

BACK: 6. Invincible Shield (WIN) for 4 units (Rated at $1.50)

Getting short in the market now due to early scratchings, he looks extremely well placed here third up from a spell and dropping in weight. The figures produced have been impressive and he has looked like he has had more to offer at each start this prep.

1. I See You Coming
3. Russian Sub
10. Living Free
2. Mintaka Lad

No interest in this race.

11. Aqua Alta
6. Start Stuttering
5. Motell
4. Chasing Jackey

Betting Strategy

No interest in this race.

3. Maid To Fit
1. Nanagui
2. Liquor
5. Amore Veloce

Betting Strategy

BACK: 3. Maid To Fit (WIN) for 1 unit (Rated at $3.00)

Drawn perfectly for the drop right back in grade and with blinkers going on again I expect she can find some of her best form which included placing behind the likes of Lady Laguna last prep, which is excellent form for a BM78.

1. Atmosphere
10. Warby
13. Deep Respect
4. Ivan’s Hero

Betting Strategy

No interest in this race.

13. Rising Pacific
9. Cinque Torri
5. Tidal Creek
8. Rogue Bear

Betting Strategy

BACK: 13. Rising Pacific (WIN) for 1 unit (Rated at $4.00)

Had no luck last start when never clear and he had the SP over key danger Cinque Torri there who has since won by a big space on the synthetic. From gate 4 I expect Rising Pacific to be given every chance to bounce back.

10. Crazy Train
4. Pizarro
3. The Vowels
5. Devil’s Throat

Betting Strategy

LAY: 14. Atlantic Ocean (WIN) for 1 unit (Rated at $6.00)

This is a much stronger race than last start and although he maps well he is currently under the odds considering he was a much bigger price last start in an easier race.

When you place a lay bet, you are betting on something not to happen. Let’s think about the Melbourne Cup again. Remember: there can only be one winner. But what about the others trailing behind them? If you place a lay bet in a “Win” market, you can celebrate if the runner tails off at the back of the field.

Doomben TIPS | Overview

SUMMARY

Like the adjacent Eagle Farm Racecourse, Doomben is owned and operated by the Brisbane Racing Club (BRC). Located in the suburb of Ascot, 7km north of the Brisbane CBD, Doomben and Eagle Farm are considered Queensland’s premier racetracks and between them host eight Group 1 races during the Queensland Winter Carnival. To find Doomben tips and race previews for each meeting, head to the Betfair Hub.     

KEY EVENTS

The Doomben 10,000, run in May, is Queensland’s most prestigious sprint. Originally called the Doomben Newmarket Handicap, it was renamed in 1946 after the prize fund was increased to $10,000, which at the time was a record for a sprint race in Australia. The 1200m contest has been won by such luminaries as Manikato, Chief De Beers, Apache Cat, Takeover Target and more recently Redzel and Eduardo. It is followed one week later by the Group 1 Doomben Cup, which was first held in 1933 and counts Zaaki amongst its most recent champions. Like the Doomben 10,000, the Doomben Cup (2000m) is now worth $1 million. For expert analysis and tips on the feature races as well as Doomben best bets throughout the year, the Betfair Hub has you covered. 

TRACK PROFILE 

Doomben’s oval-shaped, kikuyu turf track can handle a heavy schedule, as witnessed when it hosted all Eagle Farm meetings when that course was undergoing extensive renovations. The width of the track at Doomben measures 27m, whilst the course circumference is 1715m. Both the front and back straights are 320m long with a 2% camber, while the turns are steeper with a 5% camber. The Doomben track can cope with a fair degree of rainfall, but its drainage system is not nearly as efficient as at Eagle Farm. Heavy rainfall can lead to a choppy surface which makes it difficult to make up ground on the leaders, and our team of experts takes into account all track variables and weather conditions when bringing you their Doomben race tips.    

HISTORY

Doomben hosted its first race meeting in 1993, and underwent its most recent major renovation – which cost $3.3 million – in 1996. The land on which the racecourse is built has been passed between crown title, purchasing syndicates and registered racing organisations, and was used as a World War II army base between 1941 and 1945. Nudgee Road, which separates Eagle Farm and Doomben racecourses, was formerly nicknamed the ‘Gaza Strip’ in reference to the historical rivalry between the two venues.
