Doomben The Roses 2014 Tips

On Saturday a Queensland Oaks-bound field of three-year-old fillies will run in the 2014 The Roses at Doomben Racecourse with the team’s insider tips on the showdown listed below.

A final field of 16 starters will face off in Doomben Race 6 this weekend, the $175,000 Group 2 XXXX Gold The Roses (2000m) due to jump at 3:05pm (AEST).

Red hot favourite in the latest The Roses betting markets at $2.20 is the rails-drawn Arabian Gold who will get the run of the race from the inside alley as she chases her third straight win.

David Vandyke’s grey Dubawi filly won the Group 3 Adrian Knox Stakes – Frank Packer Plate double over the 2000m at Randwick in April and is looking to bring that form to Brisbane over the same distance before tackling the $400,000 Group 1 Queensland Oaks (2400m) at Eagle Farm on May 31.

The other best fancied in the field, and the only other The Roses chance under $10, is then Hera ($4).

Kris Lees’ market mover is drawn in gate four and backs up off a fourth in the Group 3 James Carr Stakes which was her debut run down under, the Kiwi expat with Group 2 winning from back in New Zealand.

So will these two Oaks hopes fight it out and finish top two in The Roses quinella on Saturday?

Or will a roughie steal the show with a double figure chance getting up such as the Rex Lipp-trained Gold Coast Bracelet winner Tinto ($13) or Asadauskaite ($11) who ran third in that same race a fortnight ago on a Heavy (8) track?


#1 Arabian Gold ($2.20)

Think Saturday will be a day for favourite backers including in The Roses with Arabian Gold the one to beat. Her form over this distance is outstanding, she comes off back-to-back 2000m wins in Sydney at Group 3 level and gets the run of the race from barrier one. Hasn’t seen Brisbane but looks ready to make an impact here ahead of the Oaks.


#2 Tinto ($13)

With rain around in Brisbane think Tinto can feature again here after a win in the GC Bracelet in the mud last start over 1800m. She thrived over the extra distance on a soft track after two eighth place finishes at Eagle Farm in April. If you can forgive that form and say she’s been looking for further than the step up to 2000m here is going to suit to a tee so include this Toowoomba-trained Red Dazzler filly who has time to overcome the awkward barrier (13).


#3 Hera ($4)

Lots of money coming for Jim Cassidy’s mount and it’s not hard to see why looking at her consistent form of late. The O’Reilly filly ran top two four times from November to February back in her native New Zealand including a win in the Group 2 Tristam Classic (2000m) on February 8. First run here for new trainer produced a fourth at Randwick over 1400m and so she’ll be ready to finish much closer when going back up to 2000m here.
