Japanese import Ambitious is the favourite to claim his first win in Australia in Saturday's Group 1 Doomben Cup (2200m).

Anthony Freedman's best effort of three starts Down Under was his second place in the Group 1 Tancred Stakes (2000m) at Rosehill in March and bookmaker CrownBet make him the one to beat having posted Ambitious as their $4.00 favourite.

The Mick Price-trained Oregon's Day, winner of the traditional Doomben Cup lead-up when taking out the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes (1800m) two weeks ago, is the $6.00 second favourite to follow up on Saturday.

Popular for all the wrong reasons, Chris Waller's Tom Melbourne, the horse beaten into second in the Hollindale Stakes, is $8.00 to turn around the form and finally get his head in front.

Ahead of him in the betting is stablemate Satono Rasen ($6.50), who was fourth in the Hollindale on what was only his second start in Australia having been imported from Japan.

Waller has a strong hand in the Doomben Cup with Comin' Through ($9.00), the hat-trick seeking Life Less Ordinary ($11) and Egg Tart ($13) all prominent in the betting ahead of the final field and barrier draw.

Darren Weir's challenge for a Queensland Group 1 prize looks set to be led by Tradesman at $11.
