2014 Brisbane Handicap Tips & Selections

Both Mouro and Rudy have been scratched from the Listed Brisbane Handicap (1600m) since the field was released on Wednesday, leaving 13 horses to tackle the mile at Doomben Racecourse on Saturday.

Four of the 13 runners are offering single figure odds in the Brisbane Handicap betting market at Ladbrokes.com.au, led by Double Impact at $4.80.

The Jackie Crompton-trained gelding has seen his price rocket from $12 into his current $4.80 following the scratchings of Mouro and Rudy with the majority of the other runners seeing their prices slashed likewise.

Does Double Impact deserve his sudden favouritism or is there a better priced runner to back in the 2014 Brisbane Handicap? Read on to see our tips for the mile race.


#2 Darci Be Good ($6)

Andrew Williamson’s six-year-old gelding benefited from the acceptance of Mouro, which kept his weights down to just half a kilogram above the minimum weight. With the scratching of both Mouro and Rudy, Darci Be Good has benefited even more since his toughest competition has been removed from contention. The gelding scored third place in the Listed Recognition Stakes (1630m) last time out, behind Rudy and Grayson Square, which was on the back of another two minor placings and two wins so he’s got the form to back him on Saturday; will also get a good start from barrier three with Travis Wolfgram in the saddle.


#6 Double Impact ($4.80)

After the scratchings of Rudy and Mouro, the rest of the field saw their prices shorten dramatically in the betting market to even out the odds. None more so than the Jackie Crompton-trained gelding who has seen his price shorten from $12, becoming both the market mover and favourite. Double Impact has plenty of experience on good track conditions and at Doomben Racecourse and has seen his share of success over the 1600m distance, finishing in the first three five of his seven starts. Finished well in the Recognition Stakes last time out in fifth.


#11 Perfect Punch ($21)

Maryann Bronson’s six-year-old gelding is one of just a few Brisbane Handicap runners not coming via the Recognition Stakes. Perfect Punch is instead coming via the Evans Head Cup (1516m) which he won ahead of stable mate and this weekend’s rival War Ends. He has unfortunately drawn wide in barrier 11 but will come into nine following the scratchings however he’ll have a three and a half kilo weight turnaround to aid him. Is available at a good price for punters to round out their winning trifecta.
