Doomben 10,000 Tips 2017 & Betting Update

The latest markets at Ladbrokes.com.au on this season’s $700,000 Group 1 James Boag’s Premium Doomben 10,000 (1200m) are all about the three-year-old Russian Revolution.

Peter & Paul Snowden’s recent Group 1 The Galaxy (1100m) winner in the wet at Rosehill has been backed in from $3.20 to $3.10 after the scratching of Sooboog leaves 14 hopefuls.

His latest run was a sixth in the Group 1 TJ Smith Stakes (1200m) at Randwick however, so there is work to be done if the colt is to return to winning form and hand co-trainer Peter Snowden his third Doomben 10,000 title.

Stablemate Redzel is at $7 out to continue his winning ways after success in the Group 3 Hall Mark Stakes (1200m) last time out, while the Bjorn Baker-trained defending champ Music Magnate ($7) also shapes-up as a danger with the 1200m even more suitable than last year’s race distance.

So will the favourite salute for the punters or is there value to be had further down the Doomben 10,000 betting markets?

Earlier we published our exclusive 2017 Doomben 10,000 Form Guide Analysis & Betting Preview, tips based on the facts uncovered found below.

1st

#5 Music Magnate ($7)

This Sydney galloper won last year’s Doomben 10,000 over 1350m and is out to go back-to-back with the race distance dropping to 1200m. Those metres actually suit the reigning champion even better as he boasts an outstanding record over the distance (7-4-2-1). He’s in winning form too having taken out the Group 2 Victory Stakes (1200m) at Eagle Farm a fortnight back. That race was the form to follow into the old BTC Cup, which this race replaces, and it can stack up on Saturday. Barrier seven into six is ideal and Jeff Lloyd rides. Handles a Soft track (2-2-0-0) and will take some beating.

2nd

#8 Start Wondering ($13)

It’s an open race and there’s value in this Kiwi raider in Australia for the first time since last May. The six-year-old is only lightly-raced still having his 20th start and first-up this distance (5-3-1-0) looks ideal. He won the Group 1 NRM Sprint (1400m) in February and was runner-up over the mile back home last start. Record over the summer reads one-two-one-two so he’s in for a win. Goes well on Soft tracks and the 79% Place Rate is the best of this field. Needs to handle the class of these gun Aussie sprinters, but comes into barrier seven which has produced the past two winners of this race. Had a time with Chris Waller in Sydney and has won in Australia previously, just not at this level.

3rd

#1 Fell Swoop ($8.50)

Matthew Dale’s always-honest five-year-old has had zero luck in the Group 1 races and really should have bagged at least one elite level title. He suffered another blow with a wide alley here, but was excellent running third in the TJ Smith Stakes during ‘The Championships’ and has won a subsequent trial. This is his pet distance (9-4-2-2) and he’s out to atone for his unplaced BTC Cup (5th) and Doomben 10,000 (6th) runs in Brisbane last winter.
