Snowden Duo Confirmed for Doomben 10,000 Field

Saturday’s 2016 Doomben 10,000 field is beginning to take shape with co-trainer Peter Snowden confirming stablemates Dothraki and Charlie Boy for the weight-for-age Brisbane clash.

This year’s $750,000 Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1350m) drew 14 nominees, but the attrition rate at acceptance stage on Wednesday will see a smaller final field announced.

John O’Shea is more likely to run Ghisoni in the Group 3 Glenlogan Park Stakes (1350m), while a number of other hopefuls are in doubt.

Snowden, who trainers in partnership with his son Paul, on the other hand will accept for both of the stable’s entries with Dothraki and Charlie Boy officially in the mix.

When head trainer for Darley Australia (now Godolphin) Snowden prepared two Doomben 10,000 winners with Beaded (2011) and Epaulette (2013).

He chases his third success then on Saturday with Mossman five-year-old Dothraki the best fancied of the duo to score the upset in Doomben 10,000 betting markets led by the Ciaron Maher-trained Azkadellia.

After a Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) third in March, Dothraki ran fifth to Chautauqua in the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) at Randwick and then headed to Brisbane on May 14.

He was beaten by the barest of margins crossing second to Malaguerra in the Group 1 BTC Cup (1200m) at Doomben and hardly needs to improve at all heading into Saturday according to Snowden.

“Dothraki won’t have to improve much, he was beaten half an inch in the BTC Cup,” Snowden told The Daily Telegraph.

“His run was good last start, he is in great form and is thriving in Brisbane.

“The 1350m probably as far as he want to go but if he draws a barrier it will be help.”

Stablemate Charlie Boy is also a BTC Cup graduate having finished second last when 12th at his fourth Doomben assignment.

He had previous won the Group 3 BRC Sprint (1350m) at the track last winter before a brave second to Boban in last year’s Doomben 10,000 and the failed 14th to Srikandi in the Stradbroke Handicap that ran at Doomben in 2015.

Despite his nice 10,000 performance 12 months ago, for this year’s edition Charlie Boy is at double-figures to win and Snowden expects an improved run with the pace to suit.

“Charlie Boy he will run a much better race in the 10,000. The tempo of the BTC Cup was against him, it took him out of his comfort zone, but he will appreciate getting out to 1350m,” he said.

“A good draw will also be a boost to his chances but his work has been very good since his last start and he is ready to run well.”

As for the dominant favourite, Queen Of The Turf Stakes winning mare Azkadellia is a confirmed runner on the weekend leading up to the $1.5 million Group 1 Stradbroke Handicap (1400m) at Eagle Farm on June 11 that she is also leading betting in to win.

“The way she is doing it will be pretty nice timing to have her right for the Stradbroke,” Maher told RSN.

“I think a run two weeks out will only bring her on.”
