Doomben horse racing tips

Race 1. (11:38) Sky Racing Handicap (1200m)

#1 – Nettuno @ $1.55 – Bet @ Neds

Nettuno scored by 4.5 lengths on debut at Sunshine Coast and that form can’t be overlooked.

It came in heavy conditions but the two-year-old colt looks to have a bright future and that’s reflected in betting markets.

$1.55 is short but he should be tough to hold out.

Race 2. (12:23) BRC Carnival Plus Membership C6 (1615m)

#9 – Knight Mariner @ $2.30 – Bet @ Neds

Knight Mariner is a two-time winner from nine starts and he doesn’t know how to run a bad race.

The five-year-old gelding owns a win and two placings from four starts at Doomben, including a last-start placing behind Slow Hands.

It’s good form and carrying 52.5kg brings him right into contention.

Race 3. (12:58) D’ double Dee’ Dawson Farewell (1615m)

#1 – Star Gamble @ $4.40 – Bet @ Neds

Star Gamble owns two wins and two placings from six starts, so we’re not surprised by the market confidence.

The Kelly Schweida-trained gelding comes off a win at Doomben and he showed good barrier speed, which is always an asset.

Punters get each-way odds, so he’s worth backing.

Race 4. (13:33) Cascade BM85 (2020m)

#6 – Sayl @ $2.60 – Bet @ Neds

Sayl was narrowly beaten last time out at Eagle Farm and he could get back to his winning ways on Saturday.

The six-year-old gelding owns two wins from four starts at Doomben and his experience should be enough to get him over the line.

Getting the inside draw is ideal and he gets in with a light weight.

Race 5. (14:08) Caleb Trust Handicap (1050m)

#7 – Putontheredlight @ $3.60 – Bet @ Neds

Tony Gollan lines up the talented filly who owns three placings from three starts at Doomben, so she likes the track.

She comes off a tidy second placing behind Rhapsody Rose and that’s open-class form, which bodes well for this race.

Drawing barrier 13 isn’t ideal but punters get odds worth taking.

Race 6. (14:47) Private Schools Guide BM78 (1350m)

#10 – Dash for Dreams @ $6 – Bet @ Neds

Dash for Dreams doesn’t know how to run a bad race after posting six wins and seven placings from 18 starts.

The four-year-old mare by Dreamscape has yet to fire at Doomben, but she comes off a win at Ipswich and this race is there for the taking.

$6 is worth taking and having Larry Cassidy in the saddle helps.

Race 7. (15:27) Deliveringdental BM72 (1200m)

#9 – Go Wandji @ $3.10 – Bet @ Neds

Go Wandji is shooting for his fourth consecutive win and he scored at Doomben three starts back.

The talented four-year-old has since posted wins at Eagle Farm and Toowoomba, so his confidence levels are sky high.

Barrier 14 could pose some problems, but he’ll head back and finish with a wet sail.

Race 8. (16:07) Tab Venue Mode Quality (1350m)

#12 – Vinco @ $5.50 – Bet @ Neds

Vinco was too good for them at Toowoomba last start and he’s a confidence runner, so he can’t be left out.

The five-year-old gelding is a past winner at Doomben and he owns two wins at the distance. That form is tough to overlook and getting the inside draw is ideal.

We wouldn’t be leaving him out of calculations.

Race 9. (16:43) XXXX Dry C6 Handicap (1200m)

#12 – More Sundays @ $15 – Bet @ Neds

More Sundays is a five-time winner from 21 starts and he comes off a solid trial placing at Gosford.

The six-year-old has yet to race at Doomben, but he’s looking for something slightly easier and this is up his alley.

Punters get value odds, so put him in the mix.
