Doomben Tips - December 15

Tips to be updated on Thursday, December 13.

Previous Doomben Tips:

December 8

Race 2 - 12:57PM COCA COLA BenchMark 70 Handicap (1350 METRES)
Coming off a last-start win, THE SOCIALIST looks well placed again and can go back-to-back here. The four-year-old hit his straps at the end of his last campaign where he racked up three straight runner-up prizes before ending it with a well-deserved win at the Gold Coast over 1400m in BM65. Second-up this time in, he destroyed his class 2 rivals at the Sunshine Coast where he took out the 1200m event by almost three lengths. This looks no harder and from gate two he will enjoy a sit behind the pace and be doing his best in the run home. He looks the goods here.
Result (unplaced) 

Race 3 - 1:32PM JIM BEAM TAB 'Origin' Jockey Series Class 3 Plate (1600 METRES)
The lightly-raced AL’S KINGDOM lines up here a last-start winner and could go on with it here. Three starts back he won his maiden in fine style, putting 3.5 lengths on his opposition. Last start he repeated that effort winning a class 1 at the Sunshine Coast, beating home The Candy Man by 1.5 lengths as he led from barrier to box. The step up to the mile here doesn’t look too taxing plus he drops 2.5kgs to compensate the extra trip. The experienced Brad Stewart will give him every chance here.
Result (3rd)

Race 6 - 3:28PM CANADIAN CLUB TAB 'Origin' Jockey Series Class 6 Plate (2000 METRES)
Drawn to perfection here, the Ben Currie-trained MISHANI VAIDRA is in great touch and is drawn to continue the winning form here. The Show A Heart mare won first-up this preparation in a BM60 at Toowoomba then finished second here behind Impasse and (but ahead of Umberto who was coming off two wins on the trot), in a class 4 over 1350m. The four-year-old couldn’t have been more impressive last start where she beat home Sofie’s Gold Class by more than a length in a class 4 here over the mile. The only concern here is the step up to 2000m but she is racing well and finishing off her races strongly which suggests she will get the trip. Jason Collett jumps aboard for his first ride on the mare and should settle mid-field on the fence. Watch for her in the run home.
Result (2nd) 

December 1

Race 1 - 12:57PM Broncos Team Store BM70 Handicap (1200 METRES)
Several winning chances confront us in the first and one of those is CATALINA MISS who looks overs in this field. The four-year-old mare boasts a very strong resume with three victories and four minor prizes in her nine starts to date. Two starts back she took care of a class 1 over 1200m at the Gold Coast where she drew wide and travelled three-deep without cover the entire trip and safely held off the challenges to score a good win. She then stepped up to class 2 company and was even more impressive where she covered the 1200m in 1:09 when crossing the line more than two lengths ahead of her rivals on the Doomben track. This looks no harder and the Sidereus mare looks outstanding each-way value here.
Result (unplaced)

Race 2 - 1:32PM National Storage Locker Room BM90 Handicap (2000 METRES)
The ever-consistent STANLEY looks right in the mix here and if he has held his form and condition will be hard to toss. Since failing on a heavy track when second-up this preparation, he then found dry ground at his next three starts and finished in the minor spoils in all three events. Last start was a quick back-up after finishing second at the Sunshine Coast, the Stratum gelding went one better at Doomben where he beat home Estikhraaj, leading all the way in the 2200m event. Both horses are up in the weights here and I can’t see the result being reversed.
Result (3rd)

Race 6 - 4:08PM National Storage Winning Rupert Plate (1200 METRES)
The unbeaten ZOUSTYLE looks to maintain that record here with a perfect draw. The three-year-old Zoustar gelding impressed greatly with his first two starts, putting huge spaces on his opposition before being spelled in July. Resuming, he picked up where he left off and leading all the way put two lengths on his rivals over the 1050m trip. He is a forward type who has gone from strength to strength and the rise to 1200m here shouldn’t be an issue. Worth throwing in your multis. 
Result (1st - $1.30)

Race 8 - 5:25PM TAB George Moore Stakes (1200 METRES) 
Former North Queensland galloper TYZONE is second-up and if his first-up effort is anything to go by, he will take a ton of beating here. Last preparation he hit peak form, winning two in good time before finishing a close second in the Listed Eye Liner Stakes behind I’m A Ripper and then third in the Listed Ramornie Handicap. Resuming from a four-month break, the Written Tycoon gelding was a fast finishing fourth behind Most Important in the Listed Keith Noud Quality (Victorem and I’m A Rippa filling the minors). Fitter for that run, he will again be powering home and already a two-time winner second-up looks right in the mix here.
Result (4th)

Race 2 - 12:57PM ROBERT WHITE JEWELLERS BenchMark 70 Handicap (1640 METRES)
Several runners line up here in good form with the Ben Currie-trained MISHANI VAIDRA being one of them. After a successful last campaign, the Show A Heart mare resumed from a five-month break winning first-up at Toowoomba over 1200m. Last start, she stepped up to the 1350m trip here and beat all but Impasse home in a class 4 Hcp. Third-up and even fitter here, the four-year-old mare has drawn well in gate 5 and enjoys weight relief courtesy of Guthmann-Chester’s 2kg claim. This puts her right in contention and she will be there when it counts.
Result (1st - $6.50)

Race 6 - 3:28PM HIT105 Class 3 Plate (1350 METRES)
One who excels at the distance here is CADOGAN who has finished top three at seven of his ten starts over the trip. Coming off two successful trials, the five-year-old resumed from a four-break finishing just behind the placegetters in a class 4 field over 1200m at Ipswich. Last start, the Smart Missile gelding stepped up in class and distance and left an impression when finishing second behind Show ‘Em in a solid class 3 field. Third-up and fitter, he looks well placed in this field and after the claim comes in at 56kgs, 3kgs less than his last start. Drawn nicely in gate 4, he should be mid-field with cover on settling and has a good turn of foot which puts him in the firing line here.
Result (1st - $6)

 A possible start in the Group Two Villiers is on the line for stablemates from the Steve Tregea camp is they perform well here. Both NICCANOVA and Prioritise could earn themselves a trip to Sydney month if things go well for them here. Both horses are coming off lengthy freshen-ups with Prioritise out to add to a four-race winning streak while Niccanova looks to add to near perfect career stats where the Nicconi gelding has missed a top three finish just once in his 11 career starts which also boast six victories. Last start he smashed his rivals over this trip in heavy going, putting more than two lengths on the talented Fiery Heights. If he hasn’t lost condition and brings that form here, he will prove extremely hard to beat. I favour Niccanova here as he is two from two at the track and trip whereas Prioritise is yet to place at the trip from five attempts and will be looking for further as he progresses this campaign. 
Result (1st - $3.60)

November 17

Race 3 - 1:02PM SUNFRESH LINEN QTIS Three-Years-Old Handicap (1350 METRES)
A race where the girls appear to have the edge on the boys. Tony Gollan’s filly LIGHT UP THE ROOM has won three of her four races to date and looks set to continue on her winning way here. Two starts back she proved too good for her age group on a soft Doomben track over 1200m. She then stepped up to the 1350m trip and won with just as much authority. This looks no harder and with a two from two record in the saddle, Brad Stewart will be looking for a forward spot and cover from his wide draw and should prove too strong in the run home.
Result (3rd)

Race 4 - 1:37PM DIONYSIUS TRANSPORT Class 3 Plate (1630 METRES)
All boxes look ticked here for MYMMING to return to the winner’s circle. The Stuart Kendrick-trained mare has been a model of consistency this time in and has finished top two at her past six starts. Two starts back, she beat all but Bryneich home in a class 3 over 1600m. Then last start, she stepped up to the 2020m journey and was nosed out on the line by So You Wish in similar company. Here, she comes up against Bryneich again but meets him better at the weights and far better at the barrier as well. Damian Browne remains aboard and after drawing the fence, he should enjoy the run of the race and dropping back to the mile will suit the mare even more. She looks exceptional value here.
Result (unplaced)

Race 5 - 2:17PM LIMOSO R2G QTIS Three-Years-Old Plate (1050 METRES)
More than half the field are resuming including the unbeaten ZOUSTYLE who looks the pick of the day. On debut, the Zoustar gelding made it look easy, winning his maiden by five lengths then backed that up by putting more than three lengths on his opposition at the Sunshine Coast in a QTIS two-year-old Hcp. He lines up at set weights looking the winner. Brad Stewart is two from two with the three-year-old and remains aboard here. From gate three he maps perfectly and should enjoy a trouble-free run on the pace. Should win.
Result ($1.60)

November 3

Race 6 - 2:39PM HILLROSS MONTEFIORE & CO OPEN Handicap (1050 METRES)
The very talented Amanaat resumes here and is a three-time winner first-up. However, he has to concede a lot of weight to the rest of the field which may tell in the run home. The Tony Gollan-trained JUST ORM comes into this a track and trip winner and after the claim carries just 51kgs. Last start he finished a respectable third behind I’ve Gotta Nel where he conceded the Sequalo gelding 3kgs that day. A three-time winner at the journey and three victories on the Doomben track as well, Just Orm lines up here a solid each-way chance.
Result (3rd)

 Coming off a first-up win here, LIGHT UP THE ROOM has shown plenty of ability in her short career and looms as the one to beat again. The lightly-raced So You Think filly has had just the three starts and has looked impressive in winning two of them. Her last start victory was most impressive where she sat mid-field (on the fence) then in the run home, had to check off the heels of runners in front of her before gaining the upper hand and ran away with the race. Drawn ideally in gate two here, she maps perfectly and will take a ton of beating.
Result (Won - $3.30)

Race 9 - 4:52PM BAC FRIENDS OF SAM Class 6 Plate (1615 METRES)
Looking for her fifth-straight victory, MADAM SHAZAM lines up here a track and trip winner and looks the testing material. The Sebring mare has climbed quickly through the grades and is in faultless form of late. A win in BM65 company was followed by a victory in a class 3 at Murwillumbah. Next came a big jump to class 5 company at the Gold Coast over 1400m which she also won. Then her last start win was even more impressive where she jumped awkwardly and settled near the tail of the field. Then she was held up in the run home and didn’t see daylight until the 200m mark where she was spotting them four lengths. She won that by more than a length, going away from them with 57.5kgs. She drops a little in weight here and drawn the middle of the field should enjoy a mid-field run with cover. She steps up to class 6 company here and has been showing her best when coming off let-ups which is the case here. Jeff Lloyd returns to the saddle looking for his first win on her after four previous attempts. Scratched from Toowoomba on Wednesday to run here, only bad luck will beat her, surely.
Result (Unplaced)
