Late Mail Doomben 10,000 Tips 2014

The sun is shining in Brisbane today and conditions look prime for the favourite Buffering to get the job done in the 2014 Doomben 10,000.

Earlier this week were behind Sydney’s Rebel Dane to emulate last year’s Doomben 10,000 winner Epaulette and back up off an unplaced All Aged Stakes run at home and take out the $650,000 Brisbane Group 1.

They led Doomben 10,000 betting pre-field and barrier announcement, but eased out to second pick after coming up with gate 10.

New favourite then is Robert Heathcote’s local six-year-old Buffering who has drawn to perfection in barrier eight, exactly where there trainer wants them.

To Win:

#1 Buffering ($4)

Buffering has contested the past two editions of the 10,000 for two top three runs, but today they’re looking to finally win the race and add a Brisbane Group 1 to their elite level tally that currently sits at three.

They were however beaten by two fellow 10,000 runners when third behind the Noel Mayfield-Smith-trained outsider Famous Seamus and runner-up Spirit Of Boom in the BTC Cup last time out.

Heathcote however believes they are spot on for today after being treated by a chiropractor over the past two weeks, and so long as they get a clear run, are the one to beat today.

We were pretty confident that Rebel Dane could upset the local with their top win rate (43%) and excellent record over the 1350m (5-3-1-0).

However with Doomben rated a Good (3) and no rain predicted, Buffering should be thriving and ready to salute for the favourite backers.

Forgive their BTC Cup loss, look at their experience and cheer ‘The Buff’ home.

Big Danger:

#2 Spirit Of Boom ($4.80)

Drawn near the inside in barrier two, the day’s first winner having had a gun run on the rails over this distance, is BTC Cup runner-up Spirit Of Boom who never runs a bad race.

Tony Gollan’s William Reid Stakes champ has run second in their two lead-up runs and is gunning to go one better.

Not quite sure if they can finish first past the post but they are in ace form, ran a luckless fourth last year and are another that will enjoy the firm going today over the extra distance.

Roughie Shot:

#11 Peron ($15)

While money is coming for the other mare in the mix, Driefontein, it is John Thompson’s four-year-old daughter of Husson who has caught our eye.

She’s out to break a drought on the back of some pretty average form, but she was beaten under three lengths when fifth in the BTC Cup last start and has improvement in her.

Best win rate of the field and a top 69% place rate.

Also tipped to relish the step up to 1350m over which she’s got an ace record with four wins from six starts, and a good record her at Doomben (4-2-0-1).

And she’s the only previous winner over the track and distance in the race.
