Hot Snitzel Works Well Ahead of 2014 Doomben 10,000

Trainer Gerald Ryan is unsure of success for talented sprinter Hot Snitzel in this weekend’s featured Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1400m), despite the five-year-old completing a strong piece of work in Brisbane on Wednesday.

While unable to match the late pace of eventual champion Famous Seamus and sixth in the Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) last time out, Ryan said the talented gelding has pulled up in perfect condition and should be far better for this first-up run north of the border.

“He seems well,” Ryan told Racing Ahead.

“He is a bit of a funny horse because every time we go away his first run is not the best and he seems to kick on from there.

“He seems bright and well, he did a little bit of work yesterday and worked quiet well with a mate and he has been to the beach a couple of times since.

“He sat back off a mate and worked home really good and ran home in really good time.

“He is a horse that to run time you have to make him run time and he finished off his work really well for him.”

Completing two impressive runs throughout Sydney’s Autumn Racing Carnival this time in, Ryan said while unsure if the Snitzel gelding is capable of claiming a victory at the highest level of Australian racing, he is expecting a far-more polished performance than that in May 10th’s feature race.

“He seems well going into it, but whether he is quiet up to weight-for-age Group 1, he is probably a little bit below the class,” Ryan said

“It was hard to get a real guide on him the other day, he over raced and pulled and hung as he can do, but he is fit and well going into it.

“He didn’t know that he had a run and I don’t think that he gave a 110%; when he stopped over racing and pulling he gave up trying.”

Claiming an impressive seven wins and seven places from his 28 competitive starts to date, Hot Snitzel was unlucky to finish second behind Flamberge in the Group 3 Sebring Stakes (1200m) first-up on April 5th, but returned to the winner’s circle with an impressive turn of foot in the Group 3 Hall Mark Stakes (1200m) prior to the BTC Cup.

Allocated the slightly awkward barrier 9, Hot Snitzel is currently featured at generous odds of $21 for success in the 2014 Doomben 10,000.

Three-time Group 1 champion Buffering currently features as sole occupant of the first line of Doomben 10,000 betting, offered at a quote of $4.20, ahead of Rebel Dane ($4.60), Spirit Of Boom ($4.80) and Famous Seamus ($8). is currently offering all new punters the chance to claim a bonus bet of up to $250!
