Doomben horse racing tips
Race 1. (12:07) Gallopers Sports Club BM72 (1630m)
#5 – Magic Conqueror @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Magic Conqueror is better for two runs back from a spell and the four-year-old is nearing a win.
The son of Love Conquers All owns two wins and two placings at Doomben, so this is his favourite track.
We expect money to come for him on race day, so lock in the $3.90.
Race 2. (12:42) Cascade BM72 (1630m)
#3 – Tamilaide @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Tamilaide has yet to win from four starts this preparation but it shouldn’t take him much longer.
The four-year-old son of Adelaide owns three placings from four starts at Doomben and his best form comes over this distance.
Barrier three sees him land on the speed and show a good turn-of-foot.
Race 3. (13:17) Girls Day Out C6 Handicap (2030m)
#1 – Our Candidate @ $3.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Most of the money has come for the second favourite who should enjoy dropping in class after running at Randwick.
The Kris Lees-trained gelding was only three lengths behind Toomuchtobear last start, which should be an excellent form guide.
His opening odds of $4.50 have been taken, so watch for further betting moves.
Race 4. (13:53) Stradbroke Season 0MW (1350m)
#5 – Caffrey @ $2.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Caffrey made a good impression when running second at Sunshine Coast last start and he probably should have won.
The six-year-old looked to have plenty of talent in Melbourne before changing stables to Queensland, so he has the form on the board.
Most of the early money has come his way, which is a good sign.
Race 5. (14:33) Qtis Yearlings 0MW (1350m)
#3 – Capri of Tuffy @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Capri of Tuffy is searching for three consecutive wins after scoring at Ipswich and we like her chances again.
The five-year-old daughter of Zoffany won at short odds last start, so getting $7 is a price well worth taking.
Dropping to 55kg is another positive and we’re expecting her to be right in the mix.
Race 6. (15:13) Sky Racing C3 Handicap (1110m)
#2 – Boomnova @ $5 – Bet @ Sportsbet
The Chris Munce-trained four-year-old still has plenty to offer and she has been close on numerous occasions this season.
She finished second at Gold Coast last time out behind Wisdom of Water, which is an excellent form guide.
She owns two wins at Doomben and she will take some catching in front.
Race 7. (15:53) Tab Venue Mode Handicap (1200m)
#4 – Self Indulgent @ $5.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Self Indulgent defeated a quality field at Doomben last start and we like her chances of going back-to-back.
The Tony Gollan-trained three-year-old has done all her racing at Doombem, so she loves the track and she can handle this field.
Look for her to settle back and come with a big late run.
Race 8. (16:32) XXXX Dry Handicap (1630m)
#1 – Profit @ $4 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Profit was far too good for them at Sunshine Coast last start and the son of Dundeel has the class advantage.
The Chris Anderson-trained five-year-old has yet to win at Doomben, but he owns two placings and dropping to 57kg is ideal.
He maps well and we’d be surprised if he wasn’t fighting out the finish.
Race 9. (17:12) St Pat’s Day Festival C6 (1200m)
#14 – Tramonto @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet
Tramonto owns six placings over the distance and he could score an overdue 1200m win on Saturday.
The four-year-old gelding is a three-time winner overall and the quality of opposition was too tough in the Silver Eagle last start.
He’ll find this much easier, so put him on top.
