Buffering Chance in 2012 Doomben 10,000

With so much hype about star three-year-olds Sea Siren and Pampelonne leading in to tomorrow’s 2012 Doomben 10,000, it is easy to forget that just two weeks ago the same hype was being made about Buffering for the BTC Cup.

Buffering

Buffering is chasing his first Group 1 victory in Saturday's Doomben 10,000

The talented Queensland sprinter was cruelly struck down by a stone bruise injury the day prior to the race but gets a chance this weekend to score his first Group 1 victory.

Trained by Robert Heathcote, the four-year-old has reportedly fully recovered from the injury that saw him withdrawn from the BTC Cup and will go into Saturday’s $650,000 event as third bookmaker.com.au favourite ($7.00).

There is little denying the class of the Mossman gelding who has placed behind Black Caviar and Hay List on numerous occasions but there is still some questions over his fitness and whether he can handle the step up to 1350 metres.

Keep reading for all the important stats as well as the reasons for and against the successful gelding’s chances in tomorrow’s exciting feature race.
