I love the winter racing carnival in Brisbane and Doomben 10,000 day was always my favourite day to get to the track. I haven’t been in attendance at the track for a few years but this is always a day that gets the pulse racing for me.
Here are my tips for the day at Doomben (with some commentary):
Can’t go past Agitate (No 1) here. Will be too good for this field and loves Doomben having collected each of its 5 wins there.
Follow the form here and there is no better form in this race than that around Leebaz which means my tip is Wistful (No 13). Has been crushed in the fixed price market so I would get on early.
After my first two tips of the day I went searching for a bit of value in this race and on that score I can not fault Jazz Song (No 14). Has improved markedly this preparation and has been gagging for the increase in distance. Each way special for mine.
Back to the short prices for Race 6 because there is no way I can go past Brazen Beau (No 2). Absolutely smashed a similar field in the Champagne Classic and has a trainer (Waller) who loves this race.
Doomben 10,000 (Race 8):
The big race on the card looked like a race in two between Spirit of Boom and Buffering when the nominations closed and the field was finalised. However when I looked at the form my eyes kept coming back to a runner I was on last start, Knoydart. Everything is pointing to a winning performance with this runner: right training, right jockey and right stable. Add in the right odds and this horse is my pick to take on and best the more fancied runners.
1. Please gamble responsibly and within your means.
2. All care is taken with these tips but no responsibility for losses incurred.
Have an excellent Doomben 10,000 day whether you are at the track or watching from home.
