Friday (Doomben)

Gday everyone,

As you’d know we usually have a very detailed look at each meeting but really busy this week and keeping these races a bit short Friday.

Have tipped in a couple of maiden races but you have to be careful  betting on maidens anywhere at this time of year with the Magic Millions maiden not far away…….


NOTE: Ive updated after prices have come out and nearly a waste of time previewing, like most midweek races they completely over do the fav and there are some ridiculously short quotes gone up.



Race 1:

Have backed MAYBE MARKLE every start without a collect yet  but should have won last start. Races on speed and will look the winner at the 50m, just a slight query at the trip but has the run under the belt and race experience against a lot of these.

KIMI has trialled very well the last couple, stable has won 4 of last 10 and think she can run very well on debut.

On Top:  2-KIMI   $5  +++   8-MAYBE MARKLE  $2.20



Race 2:

Bloody handy maiden this and a lot of winners will come from it. Another on debut I feel can run really well is RAMTASTIC, liked his trials last prep and the trial win this time in was very impressive. Just a small bet for me. (Sportsbet were first bookie up and $5.50 into $2.50 in about 15 minutes)




Race 3:

Very ordinary race and a lot of these have a horrible strike rate. Waller has found the right race for KORODON as he gets a nice drop in grade from bm75 and CL3 races back to this CL2 plate. Browne takes the ride and from the good gate is likely to box seat and get every chance

On Top:  1-KORODON $2 (too short for me to back)



Race 4:

Always had a bit of time for VOULAIT and he looks to have found a suitable race. The main hopes here look to settle back but Tarrant should be able to land in front of them and be in about the 3rd pair. VOULAIT does have a nice turn of foot when he can get cover throughout and expect him to be very hard to beat.

On Top: 2-VOULAIT (Has opened $1.85, ridiculously short, won’t bet)

Hardest To Beat:  1-JETSONIC



Race 5:

Bit concerned as to how far back BALLET BABY will get but has been racing in bm70 grade in SYD and that will be more than good enough to measure up here.

On Top: 11-BALLET BABY $5.



Race 6:

Originally I left this race out of the preview as I just wanted to see how a few of them returned, however after looking at the market I feel they have got the price wrong TULLIO $16. You have to forgive the last run and the blinkers come off, his form before that was good and had race fitness on his side. Can have a small bet at that price.

On Top: 7-TULLIO $16



Race 7:

Not sure if SEENTOOMANY will get a run here, 1st emergency at present but if she gains a run she can win, also accepted at Ballina. She was dominant at first start for Costa and then good in a better race than this last start. She is just looking for 1200m and looks well placed in this. Nice drop in grade for ENTERPRISE MARCH who was racing in good quality 3yr old races last prep, Nolen booked helps also.


(SCRATCHED- Runs at Ballina and should win there, Quinella with Al Magico also an option)
