2014 Doomben 10,000 Odds & First Acceptances

Despite not having had a run since an unplaced Sydney effort at the end of April, Gary Portelli’s invitee Rebel Dane continues to lead the Doomben 10,000 2014 odds after first acceptance stage last week.

The Brisbane Racing Club (BRC) recorded 19 first acceptors for this year’s $650,000 Group 1 James Boag’s Premium Doomben 10,000 (1350m), running as the feature at Doomben Racecourse this Saturday, down from 46 at nomination stage.

Easing Doomben 10,000 betting favourite at $3.80 is California Dane four-year-old Rebel Dane who will run on Saturday and then again on June 7 in the $1.36 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm.

Winner of the Group 1 Sir Rupert Clarke Stakes (1400m) in the spring, Rebel Dane has had just the two runs this time in.

The first was a resuming run at Randwick in the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) where he finished a good second to Lankan Rupee in the mud.

A return to the track a fortnight later however didn’t produce the result they were after when the stallion finished fifth behind Japan’s Hana’s Goal in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m).

They start back up on Saturday though in the 10,000 and the bookies are taking zero chances with this interstate raider.

Hot on their heels in the Doomben 10,000 odds though following first acceptances are then Buffering ($4) and Spirit Of Boom ($5), two local heroes that finished third and second respectively in the Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) here two weeks ago.

Rob Heathcote’s Mossman six-year-old Buffering races in their third 10,000 this weekend having run second to Sea Siren in 2012 and then third last year behind Epaulette.

The triple Group 1 champ is after their first elite level win in front of a home crowd after getting run down in the BTC Cup.

It was still a brave effort, beaten only a length in the end, with Buffering found to be suffering from a crook neck and sore head post-race.

They’ve had extensive chiropractic work over the past week and a half then to correct the issue, Heathcote looking forward to getting them back out for 10,000 Day.

Spirit Of Boom meanwhile also put in a cracking BTC Cup performance, Tony Gollan’s William Reid Stakes winner having run second to upset winner Famous Seamus beaten just half a length.

Also high up the pre-field Doomben 10,000 odds are then the likes of the John O’Shea-trained More Than Ready four-year-old Knoydart ($9), BTC Cup winner Famous Seamus ($10) who needs a dry track to prove their Group 1 win no fluke and Gollan’s other runner Temple Of Boom ($14) who beat them home in the Victory Stakes before their BTC Cup fourth.

While there were 19 Doomben 10,000 first acceptors, bookies are paying odds on only 15 runners with subsequent confirmation from a number of trainers that their horses would not be accepted for.

Notable omissions from the race will be the Chris Waller-trained duo of Arinosa and Tougher Than Ever, Sydney’s premier trainer without a 10,000 runners this year.

Waller confirmed this week dual Group 2 winner Arinosa would run in Sydney on Saturday and bypass the Brisbane feature.

Also ruled out are the Kelso Wood-trained Belltone and Heathcote’s other entry Solzhenitsyn who has been retired after injuring themselves during their dead last run in the BRC Sprint last weekend.

The official 2014 Doomben 10,000 field is set for release on Wednesday with updated odds to follow at our preferred online bookie Ladbrokes.com.au.
