Formerly the BTC Cup, which is now the Kingsford-Smith Cup held a fortnight later, this year’s $700,000 Group 1 Doomben 10,000 (1200m) is run over a shorter distance and it is a cracking field of sprinters.

Heading the latest Doomben 10,000 betting markets at Ladbrokes.com.au at $3.20 is the Peter & Paul Snowden-trained The Galaxy winning colt Russian Revolution.

The three-year-old ticks plenty of boxes, but was somewhat disappointing last time out when sixth to Chautauqua in the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) in Sydney.

There are three other single-figure fancies in the Doomben 10,000 odds including the TJ Smith Stakes third placegetter Fell Swoop ($8.50).

Defending champ Music Magnate is at $7 to win the shorter-distanced feature this year, while stablemate to the favourite Redzel ($7) could be the better value of the two Snowden runners in the race.

Below we take a look at the full Doomben 10,000 form guide, betting history and statistics to uncover value in the markets before you head to Ladbrokes.com.au for the top Group 1 racing odds.
