2015 Doomben Cup Betting Odds: Pornichet vs Leebaz

Two horses are currently battling for top spot in the Doomben Cup 2015 odds ahead of the opening Group 1 race of the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival on Saturday with Pornichet narrow favourite over Leebaz.

The money has been steady for the Gai Waterhouse-trained French import Pornichet to back up on successive Saturdays in the $650,000 Group 1 The Bundaberg Rum Doomben Cup (2000m) and score his maiden elite level after winning the Toowoomba Cup last weekend.

A four-year-old Vespone stallion, Pornichet was forced to carry the 60.5kg top weight in the Toowoomba Cup (2150m) and run in that as his Doomben Cup lead-up after the Neville Sellwood Stakes winner was balloted out of the AD Hollindale Stakes at the Gold Coast on Anzac Day a fortnight ago.

In the Doomben Cup he may be on the short turnaround but dropping back to 59kg under weight-for-age conditions is going to suit the spring-bound star who Waterhouse hasn’t been shy to declare the early winner.

Pornichet also came up trumps with barrier four, Blake Shinn booked for the ride, and in the latest Doomben Cup odds on the 15-starter final field he pays $4.20 for the win through Ladbrokes.com.au.

There are four other single figure hopes to score an upset Doomben Cup result this weekend including the Team Hawkes-trained Leebaz at $5, in from $5.50, who was runner-up to the late Guy Walter’s top mare Streama in the Doomben Cup 12 months ago.

Since then the progressive Zabeel five-year-old has been in top form, especially in his two latest lead-up runs when second in the Group 3 JRA Plate (2000m) in Sydney and then winning the Group 2 A.D. Hollindale Stakes (1800m) on April 25, which is the traditional Doomben Cup preparatory race.

Leebaz is drawn in double-digits for the weekend with gate 11 and Jim Byrne staying on but has the right form to get the better of the favourite.

The others under $10 for the win are then Chris Waller’s veteran nine-year-old I’m Imposing ($8) coming off a Hollindale Stakes third, four-time Group 1 winning mare Silent Achiever ($8.50) looking to go back-to-back for the female gallopers and Gypsy Diamond ($9).

The early market mover, the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained Not A Single Doubt mare Gypsy Diamond beat home Leebaz by a half-length to win Randwick’s JRA Plate two back before running third just over a length behind the winner Landlocked in the listed Wagga Wagga Gold Cup (2000m) on May 1.

She’s an intriguing edition to this year’s Doomben Cup field and Craig Williams jumps aboard as she looks to be become the second winner of the race from barrier one in three years following the success of Beaten Up (2013).

Outside the single figure fancies the best of the rest include Waller’s fourth-past-the-post in the Hollindale Foreteller ($10), his stablemate and former Queensland Derby champ Hawkspur ($15) in gate two for jockey Tommy Berry, and another from Sydney’s best stable Moriarty ($16) who is on the drift out from $12.
