After the flooding and heavy rain of last Friday night that would have seen a washout in Brisbane, it is sunny skies and zero chance of precipitation at Doomben this afternoon making for a perfect day’s racing.

As of 7:30am (AEST) this morning the course proper at Doomben was rated a Soft (5), a possible upgrade on the cards as the track continues to dry out as the day proceeds.
