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!

The BTC Cup is the best lead-up race into the Doomben 10,000 producing 7 of the past 10 winners
