Previous Doomben Tips:

July 7

Race 2 - 12:17PM HOTEL BEACH HOUSE Fillies & Mares BenchMark 85 Handicap (1350 METRES)
The Tony Sears-trained DON’T TELL MAMA is coming off a long freshen-up and has very good fresh form. Four starts back, she was coming off a six-week let-up and carried 59kgs to beat home a BM80 field here over the 1350m trip. Her last two starts were in open company over much longer journeys where the distances proved too much for her. This assignment sees her with plenty of boxes ticked. The six-year-old mare is a three-time winner at the track and trip and has similar success on soft tracks. After the claim she carries 56kgs and on fresh legs looks right in the mix.
Result (unplaced)

Race 4 - 1:27PM CASA CIBO BenchMark 80 Handicap (2040 METRES)
Finishing top three at his last five starts, READY FOR DANGER couldn’t be in better form. The More Than Ready gelding has shown a real liking to the longer trips, winning two of his last three. Three starts back he won a class 5 over 1800m on a heavy Gold Coast track then backed that up 10 days later with another victory at the same track over 2200m. Last start he was involved in a three-way photo on Ipswich Cup day where he finished second, nosed out by I Feel Good in a BM80 over 2150m. This will be his first look at the Doomben track but certainly measures up to his opposition, Honey Toast being the exception however the Ben Currie-trained seven-year-old has to carry the grandstand with 65kgs on his back. Ready For Danger looks ready to win again.
Result (2nd)

Race 9 - 4:37PM HERVEY BAY HOTEL & RESORT Colts, Geldings & Entires BenchMark 85 Hcp (1350 METRES)
Unlucky at his last start, NO ANNAMOSSITY gets his chance here to atone. The Mossman four-year-old has returned from a five-month break in top order with top three finishes at all three starts this time in. Second-up, he beat home a BM75 field by almost two lengths over the 1350m trip. Then last start, after a five-week let-up, he took on a class 6 field and with a muddling pace lost his position in running. He was the held up in the run home and had to cross around several runners before finding daylight. He finished strongly to come within two lengths of Manaya. Drawn ideally in gate one here, he should again enjoy a soft run mid-field with cover and could possibly secure a rails run on the turn where he should prove very hard to beat in the run home. Sword Of Justice looks the main danger and watch for Lord Coconuts first-up.
Result (1st - $4.20)

June 23

Race 4 - 1:19PM MATT, STAV AND ABBY Class 6 Plate (1350 METRES)
With most boxes ticked here, NO ANNAMOSSITY has the form and fitness to suggest he is the one to beat. First-up after a five-month break, he finished second behind Wudang Blade (won on Wed at Ipswich) in a class 6 coming from well back. Then second-up went one better in a BM75 here and carried 60.5kgs to victory. Not much harder here and after the claim drops 6kgs from his last win. He will get back but saves ground drawing gate three. He is three from six at the trip with two of those at the track. A winner, third-up last preparation and in fact won three straight from there. Third-up again here and looks the form horse of the field.
Result (3rd)

Race 7 - 3:18PM G.H. MUMM (1615 METRES)
Chris Waller’s promising mare NOIRE faces the mile for the first time here but her previous runs suggest she will handle the rise in trip without a problem. Her latest effort saw her sit back in the field and travelled wide throughout but defied the odds to win the event comfortably in the end. Carrying 60.5kgs on a heavy Randwick track, she responded very well to Tye Angland’s riding and showed another gear when given just one crack with the whip. Scratched from the Dane Ripper (due to a bad draw), she hasn’t fared much better here, drawing the outside gate but if Avdulla can get her to cross early and find a sit with cover, she will be motoring home at the finish. Sheiswhatsheis will more than likely lead and with a solid pace Noire will have the last say. Although lightly-raced, she is a very promising mare.
Result (2nd)


Race 9 - 4:33PM UBET W.J. HEALY STAKES (1200 METRES)
Back in distance and down in weight, the scene is set here for TUMBLER to bounce back from last week’s unplaced effort. Spotting the leaders at least 15 lengths at the 800m mark, the Time Thief mare had it all to do from that point. Still last on the turn and the widest runner, the six-year-old passed half the field in the run home to finish less than four lengths from the winner. She drops back to 1200m here where she is a two-time winner and will enjoy dropping 5kgs from her last run as well. Leading Adelaide rider Jamie Kah jumps aboard for her first ride and the larger Doomben track will suit better as well. Look for a big improvement here.
Result (2nd)

June 9

Drowned with bad barriers of late, SONY LEGEND has finished just behind the big money at his last four starts and deserves a break. Two starts back he came from last on the turn to be a fast finishing third behind Miss Iano while carrying 60kgs over the 1200m trip. Last start it was a case of déjà vu as he drew wide and dropped back to find a sit and cover. Storming home from the rear again, he finished fourth less than two lengths from Tyzone. He has drawn wide again here but welcomes back Larry Cassidy who has ridden him to victory twice previously. A two-time winner at the track and trip, watch for an improved run at double-figure odds.
Result (3rd)

She loves to jump and run and four starts into this campaign, SHEISWHATSHEIS will be primed to lead this lot a merry dance. Two starts back she hung on to beat home Aqua Vite over 1600m here in the Member’s Hcp, leading all the way. Then last start she tried to take out the Lord Mayor’s Cup in similar fashion only to be beaten to the line by Ducas Valentinios. She spent the first half of the race pulling Lloyd out of the saddle and then finished off the race turning her head to see who was passing her. If she can settle earlier here, and stay focussed on what’s in front of her, she will prove mighty hard to run down in this. 
Result (unplaced)

Plenty of depth here will fight out the $350,000 Group 2 Guineas with MISHANI BULLITT looking for a change of luck. Trainer Chris Anderson had originally planned a start in the Stradbroke for his Show A Heart colt however with Eagle Farm still under repair he opted for the longer trip here. The three-year-old has come back in top form and has met with bad luck at his last two starts. Third-up from a spell, he spotted Perast six lengths before the turn and took four lengths off him in finishing third over 1350m which appeared to be too short for him. He followed that up by finishing third behind Perast again, only this time his chances were taken from him when he nearly fell at the 600m mark. He lost at least a length and plenty of momentum that day but still managed to hit the line hard. The 1600m here looks ideal for him and although drawn wide, there is little early pace inside him which gives jockey Jeff Lloyd an opportunity to cross and look for a sit with cover. He’s been set for this and will at his peak after four starts into this preparation. Long odds with the bagmen but expect a forward showing here.
Result (unplaced)




What Bets To Place at Doomben Races

There are a number of ways to bet on horse racing this weekend from a standard win or place bet to quadrellas and multibets. 

SINGLE: The most common bet. The single bet involves betting on your selection to win, place, or both (each-way). If betting each-way (see our guide for what an each-way bet is), the stake is doubled as you are betting on your selection to win, and also to place.

QUINELLA: A Quinella bet is available on every thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least three or more runners. To win a Quinella, you must successfully predict the 1st and 2nd placegetters in any order

EXACTA: An exacta is exactly the same as a quinella. However, you must successfully predict the 1st and 2nd placegetters in the correct order

TRIFECTA: A Trifecta bet is available on every thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least four or more runners. To win a Trifecta, you must successfully predict the 1st, 2nd and 3rd placegetters in a given race. 

FIRST4: A First4 bet is available on most thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race provided there are at least four or more runners. To win a First4, you must successfully predict the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th placegetters in a given race. 

MYSTERY BET: A Mystery Bet takes the guess work out of picking a Trifecta and is generated by the betting agency’s computer. The computer system will randomly select three runners and if they fill the placings you win the Trifecta. 

QUADDIE: A Quaddie bet, or Quadrella bet as it is fully known, is available on most thoroughbred, harness and greyhound race meetings. A quaddie is betting on the winners of four nominated races, which are typically the last four races of any meeting, and is a very popular bet. 

MULTIBET: Multibets offer a great way to secure big winning returns on your bets as you combine various bets into one, and are proving to be an extremely popular way to bet. A multibet combines any number of bets from two to 25 into one single bet and dramatically increases the odds. 

PATENT BET: A Patent bet is similar to a three-leg multibet but is made up of seven separate bets: three singles, three doubles and a trio. Where a multibet requires all selections to win for a return, a patent bet will yield a return from just one winner.

ALL-IN BETTING: All-In betting involves a bookmaker offering fixed odds on selected feature races prior to the declaration of the final field. All-In betting on the Melbourne Cup, for example, is available for the better part of 12 months leading into the event. The risk with All-In Betting is that you will not receive your stake back if your horse is scratched.
