A quick look at Doomben Wednesday

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It’s not the worst Wednesday meeting Brisbane has seen and a few good horses are engaged.

We head to DOOMBEN and Rail Position: 7 metres 1000-375; 5 metres Remainder.

We have had rain in the south-east of QLD but the track should be in ok knick.

NOTE- This preview is done on a Good/Dead track rating.


Race 1– Not keen here.


Race 2– Another not too inviting but see 3- LOVE ROCKS, 4-QUANTUM SHADOW and 8-GALLINARI as the three most likely. This doesn’t look any harder than they have been racing in. LOVE ROCKS will improve off debut, while GALLINARI bumped into Tiger Dimijan and Beach Babe etc and was game last start.



Race 3– Most likely prohibitive odds but this looks BEACH BABE’s race for the keeping.

(What Price?)




Race 4- Very even fillies and mares race. Happy for them to go around without me.



Race 5– Happy to think MOMENT OF IMPACT can race well after running 2nd to Caldetes 1st up last prep. CRACKERJET was well in the market for the leading stable on debut and I’d be forgetting that run. CRACHING has trialed well leading into this and can trouble them.  WEHRMAN and HARD TICKER some chance in a tricky affair.

On Top- 10-MOMENT OF IMPACT  from 6,5


Race 6– Just too hard to go past MATABRAHMA here. The problem is horses like this can drop in grade to a midweek race like this of a good Saturday run and start far shorter than they should! MY QUILTER is the hardest to beat and will run well.


Hardest To Beat: 1-MY QUILTER


Race 7- Too many questions and horses mixing form. STARDON is the best horse in the race but 1000m is short of his best distance. Class will carry him a long way and he is the only horse that would make me consider betting here if he is a decent e/w price. HOLLYWIERD gets the gate and back to 1020m but I just want to see her put it together before I back her.




Race 8- VOLKHERE will probably start prohibitive odds here but is possibly a ‘blacktype’ horse kicking off in a benchmark 75. I’d be very surprised if he wasn’t the one winning. EPIC TERRA is more than up to a race like this and will be fitter from the 1st up outing. It represents the danger. VIKING HEART and INDUBIOUS are worth thoughts for those playing tri’s first 4’s late in the day.


Hardest To Beat: 12-EPIC TERRA



*Good luck if you have a bet!
