Doomben Racing Tips For 01.01.2020 - Is Amorita ready to progress?

Brisbane will hold a New Year's Day meeting at Doomben where warm conditions are expected.

The rail is in the 9m position and there should be good chance of an upgrade from the current Soft 5 reading.

Doomben Best Bet

Race 5 No. 1 Amorita

This mare had been screaming out to get past six furlongs for what seemed like an eternity and second-up, was able to prevail at the Gold Coast 1300m on November 27.

After a first-up victory at Grafton last time in, this daughter of Foxwedge gave the impression in the three starts in Sydney following, that she was looking for more ground in all of them attempts.

The gap between runs is the query but has had a trial here on December 17 and all of her better runs have been early in preparations, so the freshen-up could be by design.

Well placed staying against her own sex again and Amorita can win again as the superior horse in the race and the best bet at Doomben.

Doomben Next Best Bet

Race 6 No. 4 One For Betty

There's a little more depth to this event but the Ballina victory on December 12 had a touch of arrogance about it.

In her second attempt at the mile there and appreciating being ridden colder, she was able to storm over the top of them late and go to the line under a hold over the last half a dozen strides.

Her main dangers in the market is the favourite Seat Of Power (talented but was ordinary fresh) and Trainspotting (freshened-up, down in trip and generally needs luck).

Drops 1kg off that last start and could be the safer option here being fit and bringing in winning form against many opposition that have queries.

Doomben Best Value Bet

Race 3 No. 1 Beau Arrow

Our value bet at Doomben will round yet another tip representing the Matthew Dunn stable.

It was a fair effort when resuming at Eagle Farm on December 21 where he held his ground but ultimately just found that city race a little sharp over 1000m.

This is a big drop in class coming all the way back from a Saturday Class 6 behind a smart Rock Beat to a midweek Class 4 where he is the highest rated runner in the race.

His last two attempts at the Doomben 1200m have seen him run fourth behind Removal (since stakes competitive) and prior to that he beat Yamazaki (twice city placed since then) which is good enough for this.
