2012 Doomben 10,000 Jockeys’ Update – Bowman to Ride Buffering

The Doomben 10,000 2012 jockeys for this Saturday’s Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival feature are becoming clearer with the announcement that Hugh Bowman will partner Buffering so long as the galloper is passed fit to race.

Rob Heathcote’s classy Mossman four-year-old suffered a stone bruise to their near fore-heel a fortnight ago that saw them miss their chance in the Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m).

Making good improvement the galloper looks on track to return in the $650,000 Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) on Saturday, Buffering the current second favourite behind John O’Shea’s BTC Cup winning filly Sea Siren.

While happy with the way they have come on and the work they have been doing, Heathcote knows that with the less than ideal lead-up Buffering will be vulnerable in the Doomben 10,000.

“He’s missed a fair bit of work because of his stone bruise, but I’m confident he’ll get there,” Heathcote said.

“I gave him two laps around Doomben on Saturday and he pulled up great.

“The stone bruise burst out on Friday after he came back from a 60-minute walk at the beach.

“The pain he was feeling dissipated immediately after it burst and there’s no pain at all now.

“The biggest worry is missing so much work.

“He’ll be going into the 10,000 underdone.”

A winner of nine of their 24 starts to date for over $1.4 million in prize money Buffering was last seen running away to beat home subsequent BTC Cup runner-up Scenic Blast by seven lengths over 1200m at Eagle Farm on May 2 when ridden by Jim Byrne.

That was Byrne’s first ride on Buffering but they won’t maintain their association with the horse this weekend.

The Doomben 10,000 will be Bowman’s first time aboard Buffering and he has picked up the prized ride thanks to the suspension of Nash Rawiller.

Rawiller, who rode Buffering to their brave second behind the superlative Black Caviar in last year’s Patinack Farm Classic, was to reunite with them for the 10,000 but will be forced to watch from the sidelines.

One of five hoops to be suspended for rides from Doomben Cup Day, Rawiller has been outed for 10 meetings for his winning effort on the Anthony Freedman-trained Mawingo in the Group 1 Doomben Cup (2000m).

Rawiller and Mawingo were found to have caused interference on hot favourite Manighar, who eventually ran third, but not enough for trainer Peter Moody’s protest to be upheld.

The jockey will return on Stradbroke Handicap Day, June 9.

In other Doomben 10,000 news Saturday’s eye-catching Scone Guineas winner Pampelonne will be ridden by Corey Brown if connections decide to back them up this weekend.

Bowman was aboard Tim Martin’s hugely impressive Rock Of Gibraltar gelding for their three and a half length Inglis Guineas win at Scone.

Brown has ridden the young gun once before when the first-up winner over 1200m at Rosehill on March 24, connections leaving the decision of whether to press onto the Doomben 10,000 with Stradbroke Hopeful Pampelonne up to Martin.
