2018 Doomben 10,000 nominations: Redzel set to defend his title

Brilliant sprinter Redzel is set to defend his title after being listed among the nominations for the 2018 Group 1 $700,000 Kirin 2018 Doomben 10,000 (1200m) at Doomben on May 12.

The Peter and Paul Snowden trained Redzel claimed his first Group 1 win in last year’s Doomben 10,000 and the five year old has been included among the thrity-four nominations for this year’s weight for age sprint.

Redzel then went on to be crowned the country’s best sprinter with wins in the inaugural running of the $10m The Everest (1200m) at Randwick on October 14 and a second Group 1 win at Flemington during the 2017 Melbourne Cup Carnival in the $1m Darley Classic (1200m).

The Snowdens have tuned Redzel up for his return to Doomben with a second in a 1050m Randwick barrier trial on Tuesday after finishing second to Trapeze Artist in the Group 1 $2.5m Darley T J Smith Stakes (1200m) on the first day of The Championships at Randwick on April 7.

Co-trainer Paul Snowden said that Redzel did what the stable had wanted him to do and wasn’t pushed out in the trial by Kerrin McEvoy to run one and a half lengths second to the Gai Waterhouse and Adrian Bott trained English who was pushed to the line by comeback jockey James McDonald.

“It was only a blow-out, a half a mile fitness gallop. Kerrin kept a hold of him,” Paul Snowden told AAP.

“There’s no need to empty a horse like him out in a trial. When he has to do it, he does it.”

English is also among the thirty-four nominations for the Doomben 10,000 and is also coming off a last start in the T J Smith Stakes that resulted in a sixth placing.

In Her Time is also heading to the Doomben 10,000 as a Group 1 winner after scoring a decisive victory two starts back in the $700,000 The PFD Food Services Galaxy (1100m) at Rosehill on March 24 before finishing third in the T J Smith Stakes while the James Cummings trained Impending, also nominated for the Doomben 10,000, will have a great chance to carry the Godolphin royal blue colours to a Group 1 victory again after gaining the spoils in last year’s Group 1 $1.5m Stradbroke Handicap (1350m) at Doomben during the Winter Carnival.

Other Group 1 winners to appear among the Doomben 10,000 nominations are Le Romain, Terravista, Lucky Hustler and The Mission.

Victoria’s premier trainer Darren Weir has stacked the nomination’s list with eight sprinters and as well as Lucky Hustler, has entered Danon Liberty, First Among Equals, Stella Collision, Ulmann, Holy Blade, Voodoo Lad and Whispering Brook.

The Tony Gollan trained Most Important and Toby Edmonds’ Magic Millions winner Houtzen have the job of flying the flag for the Queenslanders in the Doomben 10,000.

The final field for the 2018 Doomben 10,000 will be released on Wednesday, May 9 making now the time to check out the latest all-in odds open online through Ladbrokes.com.au.
