Doomben Tips - September 14

Race 2 - 12:22PM SPICERS RETREAT No Metro Wins Handicap (1600 METRES)
A bit of a lottery as the market suggests with half the field under double figures. The Michael Costa-trained LA PULGA is in great touch of late and is shooting for a hat-trick here. Two starts back he beat home a BM65 field at the Gold Coast over 1800m then franked that win with another victory next-up at Ipswich winning a Class 3 over the 1690m trip carrying 59kgs. He drops 5kgs here from that win and has drawn ideally in gate two and will give a ton of a cheek at good each-way odds in this.

Race 4 - 1:33PM KESTREL SOLUTIONS Colts, Geldings and Entires Class 3 Plate (1200 METRES)
Promising four-year-old MACEWEN has had two starts this time in and should be ready to fire. First-up, on this track, he finished a close third to stablemate Six Sigma (who won again at Ipswich on Wednesday). Last start, he finished fifth, coming from well back on the turn, behind The Tenor in a BM0-75, with Brad Stewart claiming the horse is looking for further. The Rothesay gelding has three career victories, all over the 1200m trip and Jim Byrne is reunited with him here. Drawn the fence, he is third-up and has won third-up previously. He should give a bold sight in this company.

Odds correct as at 7:00AM (AEST) on 12/09/2019

Race 6 - 2:43PM ROSTRON CARLYLE ROJAS Fillies and Mares Class 3 Plate (1200 METRES)
Spirit Of Boom mare FRANGIPANI MOON is a lightly-raced four-year-old but has already shown a solid level of consistency in her efforts to date. Two starts back, she was second-up at Doomben and came from well back on the turn to dead-heat for a win with Justify in a Class 2 over 1110m. Last start, she stepped up to BM70 company over 1200m and hit the lead inside the last 200m only to be swamped on the line, leaving her a length back in third place. She comes back to race against her own sex here and drawing ideally in gate two, she will give this a real shake.

Race 8 - 4:02PM BENTLEYS Colts, Geldings and Entires Class 6 Handicap (1350 METRES)
Chris Waller saddles up topweight AUERBACH here and his resume has only one blemish on it this preparation. After winning a BM85 on this track three starts back, he then took on Open Class horses at Eagle Farm and found them a little too sharp on the day. Last start, Waller put him in a Class 6 at the Farm where he looked the winner inside the final 200 metres but was run down late by Oink. He jumps from gate seven here but has enough early gate speed to be well-placed just off the pace. Yet to miss a top-three finish from four starts at the track and trip, the Denman gelding looks right in the mix here.

Odds correct as at 7:00AM (AEST) on 12/09/2019

Previous Tips:

August 10

Race 4 - 1:13PM AQWA CONSTRUCTION QTIS Three-Years-Old Handicap (1200 METRES)
With the barrier draw again a favourable one, GINGER ROCK looks poised to go back-to-back here. The well-bred filly (by Rothesay out of a Sequalo mare) was impressive on debut at the Sunshine Coast where she finished third over 1000m on a wet track. Last start, she was stepping out for her second race start and the step up to 1200m proved a winning one where she box-seated in a slowly run race and finished too strongly for the rest. Champagne Jet ran third in that race and Ginger Rock meets that filly better at the weights and enjoys a far better draw. From gate four, she should box-seat again and fitter for her first two runs, should be too good again.
Result (unplaced)

Race 5 - 1:48PM EUREKA STUD Fillies and Mares No Metro Wins Handicap (1200 METRES)
Boasting an impressive resume, TARDIS gets the opportunity to make amends for latest run of minor placings. After winning back-to-back BM75 events, the Nicconi mare was then trapped wide at the Sunshine Coast but still finished a close-up third behind Tisani Magic in the BM80 Provincial Sprint Final (1200m) on a heavy 10. Last start, new rider Ryan Maloney took her out to lead but she weakened over the final stages to finish third again, this time behind Adoradancer who met her much better at the weights that day. She jumps from gate six here and has plenty of speed drawn either side of her. Baylee Nothdurft jumps aboard for the first time and with a little luck in running, the mare should be hard to hold out in the run home.
Result (2nd - $1.70 to Place)

Race 7 - 3:07PM MUNCE RACING BenchMark 70 Handicap (1630 METRES)
Premiership winning trainer Tony Gollan has GALTERO engaged here and after four runs this time in, looks ready to win. After a string on runs on unsuitable wet tracks, the Snitzel gelding found a dry track last start and wasn’t disgraced in finishing fifth in Class 6 company on this track over the mile. He was caught wide most of the way (from a wide draw) but still finished well enough to be just 1.5 lengths from the winner. He draws the fence here and with two speed horses drawn next to him, he should enjoy an easy sit behind the pace. Already a track and trip winner, he looks ideally placed in this field.
Result (1st - $7.50)

The Gary Duncan-trained MAGNUFIGHTER will be out to seek revenge for his last-start third behind Silvera in the Listed Tatt’s Mile at Eagle Farm. Two starts back, the five-year-old finished hard to grab third prize behind Snitch over the shorter 1350m trip. Then last start, he found Silvera a little too good on the day, finishing 1.5 lengths behind the Gollan-trained gelding. Here, he meets Silvera 2.5kgs better and has drawn much better than last start. From gate two, he should enjoy a sit just behind the early pace and being ahead of Silvera, with the weight advantage should prove a bit harder to run down. By Magnus out of a Bel Esprit mare, he comes from good blood and after five starts this time in, will be at his peak for this.
Result (1st - $3.30)

August 3

Race 4 - 1:38PM TBQA QLD BREEDERS Class 6 Handicap (1050 METRES)
The well-bred CRUSHER resumes from an 18-week break here and taken on trust, should give this a real shake. By Snitzel out of a Flying Spur mare, the lightly-raced five-year-old has made an impact on the track, winning six of her ten starts and has an impeccable first-up record. She won her last three straight, the latest being a 1.5 length victory in a BM70 at Toowoomba on a heavy 10. Unbeaten at the trip, Jim Byrne in the saddle and a winner of 4 of her 5 first-up runs, she will take tossing here.
Result (unplaced)

Race 7 - 3:37PM PERFORMER AT AQUIS Class 3 Plate (1200 METRES)
They don’t come any more consistent than WINTER PASSAGE who has three wins and no less than 13 minor placings from her 18 career starts. Her last win was 11 starts back where she beat home a Class 3 field on this track. More recently, her last two runs ended in minor placings here. Her latest effort saw her beat all but All Important home in a Class 4 over 1200m. She drops back to Class 3 company here and is overdue for a win. Weighted well and rates highly.
Result (unplaced)

Race 9 - 4:52PM DIVERSITY DASH BM85 Handicap (1350 METRES)
One at great value in the last is the Kris Lees-trained TAWFIQ BOY who boasts an excellent fresh record. Resuming from a 10-week break, he chased hard when finishing third at Grafton in a Class 6 over 1200m, beaten less than half a length. All boxes are ticked here with the I Am Invincible gelding already a track and distance winner, and a two-time winner when second-up. With his resume, he looks way over the odds here.
Result (scratched)

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.
Result (3rd - $1.20 to Place)

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.
Result (1st - $4.40)

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.
Result (2nd - $2.70 to Place)

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.
Result (3rd - $1.40 to Place)
