2016 Doomben 10,000 Confirmed for Divine Centuri

Sunshine Coast trainer Stuart Kendrick has confirmed his in-form filly Divine Centuri will be thrown in the deep end at Doomben Racecourse on Saturday tackling a gun field of stars in the Doomben 10,000.

The three-year-old daughter of I Am Invincible is a dual nominee on the Doomben 10,000 Day card having also been entered for an easier assignment in the $100,000 Listed Queensland Day Stakes (1200m).

Kendrick won’t shy away from a challenge with the progressive youngster however and will give her a shot in the big time, Divine Centuri to run instead in the $750,000 Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) at weight-for-age.

Two three-year-olds have won the Doomben 10,000 in the last four years with the John O’Shea-trained filly Sea Siren (2012) and Peter Snowden’s colt Epaulette (2013) going back-to-back.

Both were coming off Group 1 lead-up runs however, including Sea Siren who completed the BTC Cup – Doomben 10,000 double that Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival.

It is a far different scenario for Divine Centuri who is yet to race in Group company let alone line-up in a Group 1 field prior to Saturday.

She has won four of her six career runs to date and has never finished worse than third.

Her only Black-Type start came two back at home at the Sunshine Coast on April 23 when she enjoyed a one and a half-length win in the Listed Mick Dittman Plate (1000m).

That was in place of a Group 3 PJ Bell Stakes (1200m) run in Sydney during ‘The Championships’ earlier in the month, a Randwick feature Kendrick withdrew her from due to a wide draw.

She won again at Doomben on BTC Cup Day taking out a three-years-old handicap over 1050m by a length.

Her consistent form and a strong track gallop on Tuesday morning have Kendrick convinced she can be competitive against the likes of Queen Of The Turf Stakes winning mare Azkadellia, the Chris Waller-trained Darley Classic champion from last spring Delectation and Team Snowden’s BTC Cup runner-up Dothraki in the 10,000.

Those three lead the all-in Doomben 10,000 betting at Ladbrokes.com.au paying $4.80, $4.60 and $5.50 respectively.

In an open market the next best fancied in pre-field Doomben 10,000 odds are Bjorn Baker’s distance specialist Music Magnate ($6) and recent Victory Stakes winner Fell Swoop ($6.50).

Divine Centuri meanwhile is a $41 roughie, but Kendrick knows you have to be in it to win it.

“The work was good enough for us to roll the dice and have a go at the 10000,” Kendrick told AAP of the filly’s gallop.

“The winter has always been our aim.”

Kendrick has had two previous Doomben 10,000 runners to date without a top three finish.

To back his roughie hope in 2016 at the right price head to Ladbrokes.com.au and open an account at the bookie rewarding new depositing players (excluding NSW) with up to $500 in bonuses when you quote the code BETBONUS!
