Doomben Tips - July 13

Race 3 - 12:48PM BRENT KIELLY MEMORIAL QTIS Two-Years-Old Handicap (1200 METRES)
Tony Gollan has a handy two-year-old on his hands with INGEAR lining up here. The Dissident filly kicked off her career with a blistering trial win at Doomben, putting six lengths on her rivals. On debut at Ipswich, she franked that trial effort, winning that 1200m maiden by more than four lengths, and covering the trip in 1:09.9, which is good time for a juvenile having her first race start. Her trial win was on a rain affected track so the forecast soft track won’t be an issue. Brad Stewart remains aboard and from gate six, he should find a spot on the pace and the filly has the runs on the board to suggest she will take a ton of beating here.

Odds correct as at 8:30AM (AEST) on 11/07/2019

Race 5 - 2:02PM A NGHT IN FRANCE OPEN Handicap (1350 METRES)
Another from the Tony Gollan stables, SNITCH will find this easier than his last two outings and rates highly. Two starts back he finished fourth (beaten less than two lengths) behind Man Booker in the Listed Eye Liner Stakes (1350m) at Ipswich before finishing fifth behind River Racer in the Listed Glasshouse Hcp (1400m) on a heavy 10 at the Sunshine Coast. Already a track and trip winner, the Lope De Vega gelding has finished top three in all four starts on soft tracks and from gate seven, should find a sit just behind the pace with cover. Better suited in this company.

Race 7 - 3:22PM ASTROJUMP FAMILY RACEDAY Colts, Geldings & Entires No Metro Wins Handicap (1200 METRES)
Winning three of his past four starts, SNIPSTREAM faces his toughest assignment to date but has the results to suggest he is up to the challenge. Two starts back, the four-year-old won impressively at Toowoomba where he put nearly four lengths on a Class 4 field over 1200m on a wet track. He then franked that form with another big win in the Kilcoy WP Sprint (1200m) beating home the smart Mr Strachan by almost three lengths on a soft track. Five wins from eight starts, three of those over the 1200m trip, his resume commands respect and he looks a promising type who will show up here.

Race 8 - 4:02PM WWW.BRC.COM.AU Fillies and Mares No Metro Wins Handicap (1200 METRES)
The Stuart Kendrick-trained WINTER PASSAGE gets her chance to break her run of outs over the 1200m trip here and is well placed to achieve that. Two starts back, she was too far back and had no chance of making up the ground when finishing mid-field behind Spirit’s Choice over 1100m at Ipswich. Last start she looked more at home over the 1200m but still came home short, finishing third behind Tambo’s Mate on a heavy 10 at the Sunshine Coast. Yet to miss a top three finish on soft tracks, she has won two from five in the conditions and drawn ideally here in gate five, she won’t be doing too much work early and should avoid getting trapped wide from that gate. Watch for her in the final 200 metres here.

Odds correct as at 8:30AM (AEST) on 11/07/2019

July 6

Race 3 - 12:48PM CHU THE PHAT BenchMark 75 Handicap (2000 METRES)
The ever-consistent MEWSTONE ROCK lines up here against easier company and ticks plenty of boxes as a winning chance. Six starts at Doomben have resulted in two wins and three minor placings to date. Second-up this preparation, he overcame several problems in running to score here in a BM65 over 1350m. Then last start, he stepped up in grade and distance and wasn’t disgraced in finishing third behind the smart Red Colour on a heavy 10 at the Sunshine Coast. Down in grade here, the track forecast is for soft conditions where this Fastnet Rock mare is yet to miss a podium finish from eight starts. This is her first run beyond 1600m but jumping from gate two, she can expect a soft run and with a clear shot at them on the turn, she will be storming home here. 
Result (unplaced)

Race 4 - 1:23PM THE SPORTS HUB OPEN Handicap (1200 METRES)
Ready to peak here, ARMANAAT looks right in his comfort zone and is drawn and weighted to win this. The Per Incanto gelding was impressive first-up when resuming from a 30-week spell. He stormed home in the Listed Lightning Hcp (1050m) at Doomben to finish third, less than length behind Plague Stone. Then last start, with only the one run under his belt, he finished a close-up second to Brave Song in the Group Three WJ Healy Stakes (1200m) at Eagle Farm. He has nine wins from his 16 career starts and four of those were on this track. He is two from two in soft going and boasts the same stats at the track and trip. This is an easier assignment and he looks the testing material.
Result (unplaced)

Race 8 - 4:02PM BOTTLE-O Class 6 Handicap (1110 METRES)
The Tony Gollan-trained EF TROOP only has to overcome his wide draw here and should prove the one to catch. The Spirit Of Boom gelding saves his best for this track, winning three of his four visits to Doomben. He was an impressive winner, first-up from a seven-month break, winning a class 6 here over 1200m. He then drew the car park (gate 14) at Eagle Farm where he did too much work early and faded to finish down the track behind Noble Boy. Last start, he drew the outside gate again, but did well to hang on for second prize behind Smartypy in a class 6 at Ipswich over 1200m. The only concern will be the soft track but he does has plenty of class about him and with three runs behind him this preparation, he looks well placed to take this out.
Result (scratched)

June 1

A winner of five of her past eight starts, WINTER BRIDE looks primed to crack it for her first Group 2 victory. First-up this year, she won the Group 3 Wenona Girl Quality (1200m) at Randwick in a blistering 1:07.7, beating home Spright (third favourite for next week’s Stradbroke Hcp). Second-up, Tommy Berry dropped his whip as the mare finished third behind White Moss in the Group Two Sapphire Stakes (1200m) also on the Randwick track. Last start was her first look at the Eagle Farm track where finished just behind the placegetters in the Group 2 Victory Stakes (1200m) at WFA. The Not A Single Doubt mare finished off well but didn’t look quite ‘at home’ on the day. Back at Doomben here where she has won three of her starts at the track, the set weights conditions will suit her better and she can bounce back in this company.
Result (3rd - $1.55 place)

Tony Gollan’s five-year-old NATCH has hit the ground full of running since returning from a 13-week break. He was a first-up winner at Toowoomba in a class 6 over 1100m then second-up he finished second, within half a length of classy stablemate Ef Troop over 1200m on this track. That’s good form coming into this Listed event which will be his biggest test to date. The Thorn Park gelding is a two-time winner over the 1350m which is something he has over race favourite Intuition who has finished unplaced in four runs over the trip. Brad Stewart has steered him to half of his six career wins and remains aboard here. Drawn ideally in gate three, I believe he is up to this.
Result (2nd - $1.95 place)

Track specialist STELLA VICTORIA is shooting for her fourth win at the Doomben circuit and second-up off a 17-week spell, she looks right in the mix. The Foxwedge mare put six lengths on her rivals in a barrier trial just prior to returning where she then lined-up in the Group Two Victory Stakes (1200m) and finished mid-field behind I Am Excited. Jockey Jeff Lloyd rode the four-year-old at all seven of her starts last campaign and was successful on four occasions. He returns here after riding third-placed Jonkers in the Victory Stakes. The mare is dropping back to Listed company here and in four second-up appearances, is yet to miss a top-three finish. Already a three-time winner at Doomben, she is drawn nicely in gate six and will be running on at the finish.
Result (Unplaced)

Several runners here are coming out of the Doomben Cup, run two weeks ago and after tipping $41 chance TALLY in the Cup, I am sticking with him here. The James Cummings stable thought highly enough of the Street Cry gelding to have him confront the Group Two Hollindale Stakes first-up, then tackle the Group One Doomben Cup second-up. His mid-field finish in the Hollindale was due to the track being a heavy 10 that day, while his unplaced run in the Doomben Cup was a lot better than his seventh placing suggests. Tim Clark rode him a treat and although not a winning chance as they passed the 200m mark, the Godolphin gelding just kept finding something and was only beaten a tick over two lengths on the line. He only other start at Doomben was his first look at the track where he won the Shoot Out Quality over the 2200m. Finishing just over two lengths behind Kenedna in the Doomben Cup when only second-up surely warrants some thought here and at double-figure odds, he looks one of the best each-way chances all day.
Result (Unplaced)
