Doomben Racing Tips For March 11 2020

Wednesday Brisbane racing remains at Doomben where the rail shifts out to the 4.5m position from the 2m spot last week.

The track is currently in the Heavy 10 range, however there's no more rain expected on Tuesday afternoon or on Wednesday, so there could be a slight upgrade.

Doomben Best Bet

Race 5 No. 2 Metson

It was a brave February 21 return at the Sunshine Coast from this four-year-old who wasn't dealt any favors in the run.

He was posted three-wide from the beginning over the six furlong trip on that long straight which had every reason to leave him vulnerable late but he comfortably beat off the other on-pace runners and was beaten just over a length into third.

Both the winner and runner-up who had much softer runs throughout whilst the second placed Weboughtazou has franked the form nicely by stepping up in grade and bolting in last Friday.

Metson has won two from four second-up attempts which includes a victory over this track and trip last time in whilst having not finished worst than second on three heavy track runs, gives him a good case for the best bet at Doomben.

Doomben Next Best Bet

Race 6 No. 6 Prospectus

I'm willing to give this Chris Waller-trained gelding a chance to bounce back third-up following a third placed effort at the Gold Coast on February 22.

He ultimately just left himself with too much to do on that occasion after settling well back from a wide alley and did appear to be a little more dour staying at the seven furlongs following a comfortable maiden victory over that distance.

It's also worth noting that he was around four weeks between runs in that last attempt and now stepping up past a mile, is open to further improvement.

Unknown on a heavy surface which is the obvious query for Prospectus, however that clear career best run was his first look at a soft track and he should be settling much handier from barrier one in this contest.

Doomben Value Bet

Race 8 No. 7 Enterprise Jack

Back to Class 2 level is this son of Pluck who put in nice return over the six furlongs at the Sunshine Coast on February 28.

He was always going to find that a little sharp, especially coming in off just the one trial but if not for being held up for a good chunk of the straight, there's no doubt he finishes about a length closer there.

Although he was a length and a half off the runner-up, he put a three and a half length space on the fourth placed runner and whilst the 1350m here is potentially still a run short, the testing nature on the wet track will bring him further into it.

Jockey Michael Cahill is back on Enterprise Jack who finds himself in a very winnable race versus Maozi who brings handy enough form from Victoria but may be suspect with the gap between runs on this surface.
