Due to run as Doomben Race 8 at 3:57pm (AEST), this year’s $750,000 Group 1 James Boag’s Premium Doomben 10,000 (1350m) features a full field of 16 starters and an emergency awaiting a scratching to get a call-up in the Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival feature.

The latest Doomben 10,000 odds at Ladbrokes.com.au have the Ciaron Maher-trained Victory Stakes winning mare Srikandi, coming off an eighth in the BTC Cup that has produced two of the past three Doomben 10,000 winners, as the easing $5.50 favourite.

She’s got an ace record at the track, last start aside, and a gun barrier five draw but can she atone for her luckless run last time out?

Also at single figures are the likes of Godolphin’s Lonhro gelding Generalife ($6.50), the Team Hawkes-trained sprint start Our Boy Malachi ($7.50), Paul Messara’s young Scissor Kick ($7.50) and the Peter Moody-trained market mover Bring Me The Maid ($13 into $8).

So do the bookies have it right? Take a look below at the must know Doomben 10,000 betting facts and historical stats to sort the genuine contenders from the pretenders before placing your bets at Ladbrokes!
