Race 4 - 1:11PM THE MORETON HIRE MAIN EVENT C,G&E RB 0 - 70 Handicap (1110 METRES)
Best Bet 🏆No. 8 SKINS $5.50 Bet Now!
The David Vandyke-trained SKINS is second-up looks ideally placed here to get the job done. The lightly-raced Sepoy gelding spent more than a year in the paddock before resuming last start where he made a successful return to racing. Spotting Sugar Boom five lengths on straightening, the five-year-old chased Tony Gollan’s mare all the way home and got within 2.5 lengths of her to take home second prize. Fitter for that run, he draws nicely in gate two here and with the extra distance, should figure in this.
Race 5 - 1:51PM AUSTRANS BENCHMARK 90 Handicap (2040 METRES)
Next Best 🥈No. 3 SO YOU WIN $4.40 Bet Now!
The Chris Waller-trained SO YOU WIN lines up here for his first start at Doomben in over two years but drops sharply in grade and looks a solid winning chance in this company. The So You Think gelding resumed from a 13-week spell two starts back and jumped straight into the deep end, taking on the Group 2 Shannon Stakes, finishing unplaced that day. Then last start, the six-year-old lined up in the Spring Mile at Randwick where despite running the best 800m-400m sectional, didn’t threaten and finished down the track. This looks a lot easier and with two runs under his belt looks better placed here. A three-time winner on wet tracks, he should figure in the finish.
Race 7 - 3:23PM MR SUEZ JIM CAHILL OPEN Handicap (1350 METRES)
Best Value 💰No. 7 GREY MISSILE $7.00 Bet Now!
Former North Queenslander, GREY MISSILE is second-up here and his resume suggests that’s when he is at his most dangerous and with that in mind, looks ideally-placed here. Last preparation, his last five starts ended in top-three finishes before he hit the paddock for a lengthy 22-week break. Resuming, he lined up in Open company, here over 1200m. Settling worse than mid-field on the fence, he had no luck at all in the run home, blocked for a run several times. A new rider here sees Ben Thompson take the reins for the first time. Drawn the fence, he should enjoy a cushy run just behind the pace. Five second-up runs have ended with four wins and with a little more luck than last start, he can keep that record intact here.
