Doomben Scratchings – 06/06/2015

Total Scratchings: 19

Race 1 (11:22am) – $100,000 Listed Coca Cola Amatil Hinkler Handicap (1200m)

#13 Discreet (11)

One comes out of the first handicap of the day leaving a dozen hopefuls in a field led by the Robert Heathcote-trained Excellantes carrying 58kg. The markets are firmly led by Kapernick however who is on the 54.5kg minimum and paying $2.90 to keep his good form going following a first-up Rosehill win and then a second over the same track and distance (1200m) with 56.5kg last weekend.

Race 2 (11:57am) – $100,000 Listed James Boag’s Premium Lancaster Stakes (1200m)

#12 Stella Gris (14), #14 Divine Centuri (12)

A field of 13 remains in this two-year-old fillies’ feature where there’s an odds-on favourite in Flippant ($1.75) who is also the market mover. Hugh Bowman has the ride on her who comes off an easy win in Listed company at Scone and should get the run of the race here from gate five.

Race 3 (12:32pm) – $100,000 Listed Ambassador Travel The Wayne Wilson Mile (1600m)

#8 Staviva (6)

The race formerly known as the Strawberry Road Handicap is down to 10 starters and top of the field, weights and odds at $2.40 and firming is the Chris Waller-trained six-year-old Strawberry Boy who doesn’t know how to run a bad race. He’s the one to beat as he comes off a Group 3 WFA win over the same track and distance from a fortnight ago and jockey Zac Purton stays on for the ride.

Race 4 (1:07pm) – $200,000 Group 2 Best Security Dane Ripper Stakes (1350m)

#8 Lumosty (8)

The first of the Group races is this showdown for fillies and mares heading towards the Group 1 Tattersall’s Tiara (1400m) at the Gold Coast on June 20. Lumosty comes out of the race after gaining a start as the first emergency in today’s Stradbroke Handicap leaving all the money in the fourth on the Chris Waller-trained perennial Group 1 placegetter Catkins ($3.30 into $2.30).

Race 5 (1:42pm) – $400,000 Group 2 Sky Racing Queensland Guineas (1600m)

#17e Ulmann (6), #18e Rekindled Power (10), #19e Final Decision (14), #20e Staviva (11), #21e Right Or Wrong (7)

All the emergencies are out of the lucrative Queensland Guineas leaving the original 16 starters to face off in this three-year-old’s set weights classic. Five are under $10 for the win in the latest markets at Ladbrokes including two at $6.50 with Sure And Fast and market mover Miss Cover Girl the equal favourites.

Race 6 (2:17pm) – $600,000 Group 1 BMW J.J. Atkins (1600m)

No current scratchings

There are no two-year-olds out of the day’s opening elite level with a dozen juveniles keen to face off over the Doomben mile in this including the Liam Birchley-trained Group 2 winning filly Blueberry Hill ($4.80) who is the new favourite to improve on her last start second in the BRC Sires’ Produce Stakes, the form race to follow historically into the JJ Atkins.

Race 7 (2:57pm) – $600,000 Group 1 Channel Seven Queensland Derby (2200m)

#10 Master Of Arts (13), #13 Inauguration (3), #19e Lucoblu (5)

Two came out of the 2015 Queensland Derby field on Friday including second pick in the markets Master Of Arts for Darren Weir with injury. The first two emergencies came in so there are still 16 hopefuls in the three-year-olds’ classic, which you can get Best Tote or SP + 20% on through Ladbrokes.com.au, led by the in-form Kiwi Werther ($2.30) shooting for back-to-back wins at the track on successive Saturdays after the WFA Group 2 Eagle Farm Cup success over the older horses here last weekend.

Race 8 (3:37pm) – $2,000,000 Group 1 AAMI Stradbroke Handicap (1350m)

#7 Lord Of The Sky (3), #15 Fast ‘N’ Rocking (6), #18e Rock Sturdy (12), #19e Flamingo Star (20), #20e Riva De Lago (15), #21e Tried And Tired (18)

The big withdrawal from the 2015 Stradroke Handicap field yesterday was Lord Of The Sky, which bought in the first emergency and now $4.60 favourite at Ladbrokes.com.au Lumosty into the line-up in gate 10. This morning a bruised heel also sees Fast ‘N’ Rocking come out so there are just 15 in the mix.

Race 9 (4:17pm) – $300,000 Group 2 Evergreen Turf Brisbane Cup (2200m)

No Current Scratching

There are all 13 original final acceptors for the last here and it is an open market to close the card with four battling for favouritism including the current $4.20 top fancy Let’s Make Adeal who has been backed in from $7.
