Flamboyer Heads 2016 Tattersall’s Mile Odds

Running as Doomben Race 7 at 4:12pm (AEST), this year’s $100,000 Listed Tattersall’s Mile Handicap (1600m) originally drew a final field of 11 hopefuls.

The line-up is down to 11 milers following the scratching of the Robert Heathcote-trained Bewhatyouwannabe (5).

Sitting top of the Tattersall’s Mile betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au is the in-form Gold Coast galloper Flamboyer, the Clang five-year-old at a current quote of $4.20.

Already he has been backed in from $5 to post his third straight win following victories in a Class 6 over 1400m at Eagle Farm late last month and the Listed Glasshouse Handicap (1400m) at the Sunshine Coast on July 2.

He rises notably in weights from 54kg in the Glasshouse to 57kg this weekend, but is still the one to beat according to the bookies drawn the inside alley with Jeff Lloyd retaining the ride.

In an open Tattersall’s Mile market this season there are five other single-figure hopes for the win including Heathcote’s remaining runner, Lauterbrunnen ($5) in barrier nine with veteran hoop Jim Byrne in the saddle.

Not A Single Doubt five-year-old Lauterbrunnen won at Rockhampton last month before a close third when defeated just a length on July 9 in a Doomben handicap over 1630m.

He returns to the same track and distance this weekend and drops from 55.5kg that run to the 54kg minimum in the Tattersall’s Mile.

Drawn the outside alley is Ciaron Maher’s Victorian visitor Akavoroun who occupies the third line of betting at $5.50 even with the wide barrier.

Local Queensland hoop Damian Browne comes aboard the six-year-old who comes off a second in the same Doomben lead-up as Lauterbrunnen that was won by Harada Bay.

Akavoroun was also wide that day (barrier 10 of 10) and carted 59kg, three kilos more than his Tattersall’s Mile rematch with the John & Chris Meagher-trained Harada Bay.

Drawn one inside of Akavoroun on Saturday, the flying Harada Bay has won two of his past three starts both at Doomben Racecourse and also drops a kilo down to 55.5kg on Saturday.

Harada Bay has a strong record over the Doomben Mile (8-2-2-3) that the Haradasun six-year-old pays $6.50 to add to with success in the Tattersall’s Mile.

Rounding out the single-figure fancies are Feltre ($7) and Brettan ($8.50) drawn in barriers six and five respectively.

Brian Smith saddles-up Show A Heart five-year-old Feltre who also comes off a win having taken out Eagle Farm’s Listed Spear Chief Handicap (1830m) over more distance on June 25.

He is back down to a mile this weekend, but has won just one of his five previous starts over the 1600m that he was last seen finishing a disappointing 15th over behind Hopfgarten in the Listed Wayne Wilson on June 11 as a $41 roughie.

The Doug Roberts-trained Commands gelding Brettan meanwhile comes off back-to-back Brisbane seconds firstly behind Flamboyer at Eagle Farm and then behind Angel Dancer on July 9 over 1350m at Doomben in a Class 6 showdown.

He returns to a mile this weekend and has a solid record over the distance (7-2-1-1) and will also enjoy the drop back from 56.5kg last start to the 54kg.
