SOUTHS SPORTS CLUB QTIS 3-Y-O Handicap Tips (Race 4)

Doomben Next Best Bet - Race 4 No. 3 Scathing

Chris Munce trained Scathing finds another winnable race over the 1350m at Doomben where he already boasts a strong record of two wins and three minor placings from six starts.

The only time Scathing has been unplaced at Doomben was when finishing strong behind black-type performers Dawn Passage, Hightail and Subpoaned.

After scoring back-to-back victories to begin his preparation, the three-year-old son of Trusting performed admirably in the Gold Coast Guineas and Group 3 Fred Best races at Doomben.

Since his last run at the end of May, Munce has given Scathing a strong 1000m trial at Doomben which will have him primed to strike, and from barrier nine with Justin Huxtable aboard looks hard to hold out.


Doomben Feature Tip - Race 5 No. 2 Le Juge

Chris Waller will look to strengthen his vice-like grip on middle distance races down the east-coast with the five horses in the Group Three Premiers Cup, led by his ulta-consisten gelding in Le Juge.

After enjoying an unbelievable run during the 2019 Winter Carnival, Le Juge went 16 races without a win before dominating the Group Three Chairman's at Doomben two starts back.

Last start the seven-year-old was strong through the line behind Brimham Rocks at Eagle Farm, but returns to Doomben where he boasts five wins from eight starts.

With Michael Cahill aboard from barrier five, Le Juge should get a lovely smother behind the leaders which will allow him to produce his electric turn of foot.

CANADIAN CLUB Class 6 Plate (Race 6)

Doomben Best Bet - Race 6 No. 6 Soxagon

After being nabbed on the line by the airborne Red Chase last start, Mark Currie's four-year-old gelding looks primed to bounce back to the winners circle.

An ultra-consistent performer, Soxagon has finished in the quinella ten of fifteen starts so far in his short career including placings behind Alligator Blood and Vega One.

From barrier seven, Brad Stewart will find a perfect run in transit one-off the fence and looks primed to return to the winners circle.

Soxagon gets in very well under the set weights condtions of this 1350 metre event and gets his chance to bounce back as the best bet at Doomben.


Doomben Value Bet - Race 8 No. 6 Krone

Since joining the Tony Gollan stable Krone has been great touch and looks set to breakthrough for a well deserved victory stepping up to the mile.

Forced to settle last from barrier twelve, the four-year-old mare charged home behind Love You Lucy in the Group Two Dane Ripper at Eagle Farm running her last 600m in 33.80 seconds.

Although she hasn't won over the mile, she has strong form around Mystic Journey, Amphitrite and Verryy Elleegant, finishing on the heels of the Group One performers as a three-year-old.

Jumping from barrier six, Brad Stewart will be able to settle just behind the speed, holding a lovely run in transit where she can charge over the top.


Doomben Favourite - Race 9 No. 2 Pinnacle Star

After two strong performances already this preparation, the David Vandyketrained Pinnacle Star finds a suitable race to breakthrough for another victory to close out the day.

After jumping from the inside barrier last start at Eagle Farm, Ryan Maloney was held up for a run at a vital point before charging home to narrowly go down.

Stepping out third-up over the 1200m where she hasn't missed a placing, the daughter of Starspangledbanner will have reached peak fitness third-up and looks set to produce her peak performance for the prep.

Jumping from barrier nine, Maloney stays aboard and will have the opportunity to settle behind a strong speed and produce her powerful finish.
