Doomben horse racing tips

Race 1. (12:08) Tattersalls Racing Club Handicap (1350m)

#1 – Ping @ $4.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Ping won on debut at Ipswich by a narrow margin and having that experience is ideal.

The Stuart Kendrick-trained two-year-old paid $18 when winning on debut and he didn’t get all favours during the run.

Getting the inside draw helps and we think he should go close in the opener.

Race 2. (12:43) Tattersalls Life Members BM78 (2200m)

#1 – Flambeur @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Punters get value odds for Flambeur, who finished third behind Outlandos at Randwick last time out.

That form is better than most of his rivals in this race and he should enjoy racing in Queensland against slightly easier fields.

He handles wet tracks, so the $7 is a generous price.

Race 3. (13:18) Tab Venue Mode 0MW (1600m)

#8 – Knight Mariner @ $2.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Knight Mariner has talent on his side and he kicked off his last campaign with consecutive wins.

The five-year-old was beaten fresh up at Doomben, but he was only 1.3 lengths behind some smart types, so the form checks out.

Carrying 54kg puts the scales in his favour.

Race 4. (13:57) Girls Day Out BM72 (1600m)

#12 – Next Dimension @ $7 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Next Dimension needed two runs back from a spell and the six-year-old gelding loves racing at Doomben.

The Kacy Fogden-trained has had four starts at Doomben for a win and two placings, so he could improve on that form.

Barrier two helps and punters get odds worth taking.

Race 5. (14:37) Sky Racing Tatts Member’s Cup (1600m)

#1 – Profit @ $3 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Profit has been far too classy for his opposition of late and we’re expecting another winning performance.

The five-year-old gelding won by 2.3 lengths two back before winning by just under a length against strong opposition.

Carrying a big weight won’t be an issue, so put him on top.

Race 6. (15:17) Tattersalls Weddings Handicap (1350m)

#2 – Merimee @ $4.80 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Chris Waller lines up the three-year-old filly who owns two wins at Doomben, so she likes the track.

The daughter of Winning Rupert won by 2.3 lengths against a similar field, including Cool Lad, who is paying $4.20.

Barrier 13 shouldn’t be much of an issue and we’re happy with the odds.

Race 7. (15:57) The Conservatory at Tatts Handicap (1050m)

#3 – Le Palmier @ $3.90 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Le Palmier is a noted fresh up performer with five starts for two wins and three placings.

The Tony Gollan-trained five-year-old owns a win at Doomben, and although it’s not his favourite track, he looked good at the trials on the surface.

Barrier two bodes well and we’re confident of a winning performance.

Race 8. (16:33) Stradbroke Season on Sale C3 (1200m)

#9 – Maybe the Best @ $3.20 – Bet @ Sportsbet

The David Vandyke-trained mare comes off a two-length win at Sunshine Coast and her consistency stands out.

She owns three wins and four minor placings from eight starts, so there is no reason why she shouldn’t be winning on Saturday.

It’s her first start at Doomben, but it shouldn’t make a difference.

Race 9. (17:12) Tattersalls Events C6 Handicap (1350m)

#10 – Charretera @ $9.50 – Bet @ Sportsbet

Charretera returned from a spell with a win at Ipswich and that confidence boost should help.

The Gollan-trained son of Epaulette has yet to race at Doomben, but he’s an adaptable type who has class on his side.

We’re surprised by the odds so back him on an each-way basis.
