2014 Doomben 10,000 Betting Update – ‘The Buff’ Still Favourite

Local hero Buffering remains favourite to take out the big one in Brisbane today, the Robert Heathcote-trained galloper heading the Doomben 10,000 2014 betting markets

When betting on the 11-horse field for this year’s $650,000 Group 1 James Boag’s Premium Doomben 10,000 (1350m) opened earlier in the week, Mossman six-year-old Buffering was at $3.90 to win.

That was a price that had firmed in from the ante-post markets where Gary Portelli’s Sydney visitor Rebel Dane, to make their first Queensland appearance here, was the top fancy.

Buffering, last seen running third as the beaten BTC Cup favourite but with neck and head issues to explain away the performance, got out to as long as $4.20 before firming back into their current quote of $4.

A three time Group 1 winner last spring – summer season after many years of trying to win an elite level, if successful today Buffering will be saluting in a major in front of a home crowd for the first time making this a special one should they get the job done.

Second favourite is now California Dane stallion Rebel Dane, drawn out in barrier 10 and looking to overcome the poor record of four-year-olds in the 10,000.

Like Buffering, Rebel Dane has also eased out in their price from $4.40 to $4.60 as they look to emulate last year’s Doomben 10,000 winner and atone for an unplaced effort in the Group 1 All Aged Stakes (1400m) in Sydney a month ago with a win here.

Tony Gollan’s William Reid Stakes winner Spirit Of Boom is then third pick out from $4.50 to $4.80 to go better than their fourth in the 10,000 last year and their nice second in the BTC Cup last start.

Upset BTC Cup winner Famous Seamus meanwhile remains steady at $7.50 to win again for their Hawkesbury-based trainer Noel Mayfield-Smith who will be thrilled with the Good (3) track and clear skies in Brisbane today.

The definite Doomben 10,000 market mover meanwhile is the Gai Waterhouse-trained Driefontein who has come into $15, equal with John Thompson’s Husson mare Peron.

Drawn well in barrier five with Nash Rawiller to ride, four-year-old Fastnet Rock mare Driefontein won the Group 1 Robert Sangster Stakes (1200m) in Adelaide two back.

She went for a Morphettville double then on May 10 but failed badly when finishing 15th, beaten eight lengths by 40-1 winner Smokin’ Joey in the Group 1 The Goodwood (1200m) where she failed to let down on the Slow (7) track.

The money however is now coming for her with track conditions perfect for those that thrive in the Dead – Good range like Driefontein.

“She has been everywhere and if she gets firm footing, she is right in the race in Brisbane,” Waterhouse told the Mandurah Mail on Friday.
