2012 Doomben 10,000 Day Tips

Doomben – Saturday May 26, 2012

Race 1 – 12:15pm Oztronics Class 6 Handicap (1615m)

  • 1st – #3 They Won’t Last ($5.50)
  • 2nd – #16 Angusroy ($5)
  • 3rd – #5 Horoscopes ($15)

They Won’t Last comes off a good third at the Gold Coast in the wet and can handle the rain if it comes here. Anugsroy gets the draw (barrier four) and was impressive last start winning over 1500m on a Heavy Eagle Farm track, while Horoscopes to improve on their last start effort at Ipswich and run a place but is drawn too wide for the win.

Race 2 – 12:50pm Ambassador Travel QTIS Three-Years-Old Handicap (1200m)

  • 1st – #4 Longshoreman ($7)
  • 2nd – #5 Viking Heart  ($7)
  • 3rd – #3 Run With Me ($13)

Longshoreman rises in class here but are undefeated with three wins from as many starts to date, see Brisbane for the first time, Galloway stays on and they get a draw in five, if it rains they’ll be near impossible to beat with their trio of wins being on Slow – Heavy. Viking Heart is a definite improver, lots to like including their record at the track (6-2-2-1) and their back-to-back wins over 1350m at Doomben in Feb. Run With Me has the right lead-up but rises in the weights and is drawn in double digits.

Race 3 – 1:25pm Sita Australia The Phoenix (1350m)

  • 1st – #1 Choice Bro ($5.50)
  • 2nd – #10 Hoss Amor ($2.30)
  • 3rd – #5 Courtz Boy ($16)

Find out why Choice Bro is our tip to win in our The Phoenix 2012 Tipping Guide.

Race 4 – 2:00pm Ticketek Class 6 Plate (1350m)

  • 1st – #9 Hour Of Peril ($8)
  • 2nd – #17 Supreme Affair ($81)
  • 3rd – #1 Dusty Gold ($5)

Hour Of Peril the market mover for a reason, their Gold Coast win in the wet last time out was good and they know how to win at Doomben as well, plus Cassidy stays on, won’t get them at $31 odds again. Supreme Affair gets a run with an early scratching and if they can step it up and back up from their recent win at the Sunshine Coast on a Slow rated track will be competitive at the best odds of the day. Dusty Gold was impressive when fourth over this track and distance last start when fourth and will improve on that

Race 5 – 2:40pm Mullins Lawyers Grand Prix Stakes (2200m)

  • 1st – #2 Brambles ($4)
  • 2nd – #3 Vatuvei ($6.50)
  • 3rd – #1 Isopach ($5)
