Closing the BTC Cup Day card as Doomben Race 8 at 4:41pm (AEST), there are 13 three-year-olds left in the line-up for this year’s $125,000 Group 3 Rough Habit Plate (2000m) after the early withdrawal of Trafalgar (9).

Top of the updated Rough Habit Plate betting markets paying a firming $3.30 for the win through Ladbrokes.com.au is a stablemate of the scratched galloper, the fellow Chris Waller-trained Mackintosh.

Drawn nicely in gate four for his hoop Blake Shinn, the Pins gelding comes off a 1500m win at Hawkesbury from April 30 and is out over further than a mile for the first time here.

Despite his inexperience at the distance, the bookies are taking no chances and have the youngster as the market mover followed closely by Cylinder Beach ($3.50) for Brisbane’s Desleigh Forster.

Last start the in-form Showcasing gelding Cylinder Beach won the Group 3 Gunsynd Classic (1630m) at Doomben narrowly, the traditional Rough Habit lead-up.

That made it two from five at the track where he also has run third twice and from gate three this weekend and the blinkers off, Cylinder Beach is being given every chance to handle the extra metres on way to next month’s Group 1 Queensland Derby (2400m) at Eagle Farm.

So will the top two battling for favouritism in the Rough Habit Plate odds be running the quinella on Saturday or is there value tipping an upset from the likes of Peter & Paul Snowden’s filly Tap This ($7.50) or the consistent John O’Shea-trained Eschiele ($13) drawn wide but coming off two wins on the trot?


#2 Cylinder Beach ($3.50)

Gunsynd Classic winner last start needs to handle the extra distance, but is Derby-bound and Forster is confident he can get the job done here from the nice gate second-up after the confidence boosting victory.


#8 Eschiele ($13)


#4 Multifacets ($10)
