Last year’s seven-length champion Zaaki returns...
Peter & Paul Snowden’s spruik three-year-old Mazu is clear all-in favourite to win the 2022 Doomben 10,000 this winter in Brisbane following nominations for the opening elite level race of the carnival.
Racing Queensland took early entries for a host of the upcoming Brisbane Winter Racing Carnival features on Tuesday including those for the Group 1 $1 million Doomben 10,000 (1200m) on May 14.
The Doomben 10,000 nominations attracted 26 entries and including five three-year-olds looking to take on the older sprinters.
Sea Siren (2012) and Epaulette (2013) are the last three-year-old Doomben 10,000 winners and the early money suggests Team Snowden’s in-form Maurice gelding Mazu could be the next.
Post-nomination Doomben 10,000 odds online at Ladbrokes.com.au have the youngster at a short quote of $2.60.
To date Mazu has won six of his 10 career starts including his past five straight, the latest being the Group 2 $1 million Arrowfield 3YO Sprint (1200m) in the mud at Randwick on April 9.
Co-trainer Peter Snowden chases his fourth Doomben 10,000 win this winter following previous victories with Beaded (2011), the aforementioned three-year-old Epaulette (2013) and most recently subsequent dual The Everest hero Redzel (2017) in partnership with his son Paul.
The other three-year-old Doomben 10,000 nominees for this year are: Snitzel colt Generation for Ciaron Maher & David Eustace, the Godolphin-raced TJ Smith third place-getter Paulele, the Chris Waller-trained Ranch Hand and Mark Waller’s Kiwi-raced Sword Of State.
Following Mazu in all-in Doomben 10,000 betting at $7 is Robert & Luke Price’s Group 2 Victory Stakes winner from last weekend at Eagle Farm, Count De Rupee.
The Real Impact four-year-old was impressive returning to winning form when celebrating his first win since last November’s $1 million The Gong (1600m) ahead of his major target in a fortnight.
Three other runners are also currently under double-figures for the win with: Tony Gollan’s Magic Millions Sprint winning mare Isotope ($8), Group 1 Railway Stakes winner in New Zealand from the start of the year Entriviere ($9) now back with Mark Waller down under and Rob Heathcote’s former JJ Atkins champ Rothfire ($9).
Other notable hopes in the mix include the autumn’s Futurity Stakes winner Sierra Sue, the James Cummings-trained seven-year-old stalwart Kementari, dual Group 1 winning mare for Chris Waller September Run and the summer’s Magic Millions Cup champion Eleven Eleven.
