Doomben 10,000 2012 – Preview and Tips

The Brisbane Winter Carnival has delivered plenty of exciting racing action so far and it won’t be stopping this Saturday when the race-going public will flock to Doomben Racecourse for the Group 1 2012 Doomben 10,000 (1350m).


Buffering is the tip to win the Doomben 10,000

A quality field of 16 horses have been named to contest the $650,000 feature that will run as the seventh race on a bumper eight-event program.

Rain is currently pouring in Brisbane and is expected to do so throughout the day but fine weather is predicted tomorrow in the Queensland capital.

Current favourite to take top honours is John O’Shea-trained filly Sea Siren ($4.00) who is fresh off an impressive 1 1/3 length victory in the Group 1 BTC Cup.

But history is against the Fastnet Rock three-year-old with no filly having won the event since it began in 1933.

Next best in the betting is fellow three-year-old Pampelonne ($4.80) while star Queensland sprinter Buffering returns from a stone bruise injury and is third favourite at $7.00.

Not sure who to back in the Doomben 10,000? Don’t worry, the work has been done for you, the team have been slaving over the form to bring you our best winning tips.

The Winner

#4 Buffering $7.00

Questions remain over how much fitness the Robert Heathcote-trained star has lost due to the stone bruise injury but if he is anywhere near his best he is simply the class horse in the race.

The son of Mossman has shown his ability when placing behind Black Caviar on several occasions and missed out by a head earlier this year when runner-up to Hay List in the prestigious Newmarket Handicap.

The other question mark on this gelding is whether he can step to 1350 metres? We think yes. He’s a far more seasoned horse than this time last year when he was able to run fourth in the Stradbroke Handicap (1400m).

Brisbane is currently being soaked with rain and if the track gets into the slow or heavy range tomorrow this will play in to Buffering’s favour.

He boasts a record of three wins from five starts on wet tracks including last start when he beat Scenic Blast by seven lengths.

With experienced Sydney rider Hugh Bowman in the saddle, look for him to sit with Adebisi who will set the early speed and if he is anywhere near 100 percent he will be too strong for the rest of the field and hang on at the back end of the race.

The Placings

#12 Pampelonne $4.80 and #7 Pinwheel $12.00

Whether or not Pampelonne is ready for Group 1 racing yet is still up for debate but what isn’t is the fact that this horse is flying.

From three starts this year, the Tim Martin-trained gelding has produced three dominant victories including a 3 1/2 length win in the $500,000 Scone Guineas last start.

He showed the distance will be no concern when flying home over 1400 metres at Scone and has drawn a plum barrier three position.

Lohnro gelding Pinwheel hasn’t raced since being beaten by a head in the Hall Mark Stakes a month ago but the six-year-old always delivers.

From 30 career starts, the Peter Snowden-trained horse has won ten times and placed on another 13 occasions and has drawn nicely to come out of barrier eight with Kerrin McEvoy in the saddle.

The Roughie

#15 Ladys Angel $31.00

Placing a lot of emphasis on the weather here but if as much rain falls today as expected then this mare becomes a great betting prospect.

Joseph Pride is gaining a reputation for being able to train quality sprinters and this one is no different.

The Arena five-year-old finished third in the Group 1 Galaxy at Randwick and has won three times and finished runner-up twice from five wet-track starts.

Agree and think Buffering will be too good tomorrow? Whether you do or not, head to today to back a winner at great value odds.
