Doomben Racing Tips For March 4 2020

Brisbane racing heads to Doomben again, this time for an eight race midweek card following Saturday's meeting.

The rail shifts out to the 2.5m position and the track is currently in the Soft 5 range.

Doomben Best Bet

Race 8 No. 11 Zoucara

This Chris Munce-trained mare didn't come up last campaign and after her second-up flop, was subsequently tipped out.

She looked a different galloper resuming here on February 19 as runner-up behind the in-form Goodonya Sonya who's rated well above anything here and would've picked her up in a few more strides.

The step up to the 1350m is a big tick off that performance and they put more than a three length gap on third in that fresh attempt, a good sign coming back to a Set Weights Class 3.

Gets in very well here as one of the equal top raters where she carries just 55kg with the Justin Huxtable claim and with a bit of luck from the gate, can win the last as the best bet at Doomben.

Domben Next Best Bet

Race 5 No. 1 Sco Mo Eagle

In a stronger race, we had this gelding as our best value bet here on February 19 when resuming and at the double figure price, was honest as runner-up.

Has admittedly had chances in all three Australian starts to date has this ex-Kiwi gelding but coming back to a Class 1, he should find this much easier and the low draw offsets the slight increase in the weights.

He did run into some useful horses when in NSW when under the care of Danny Williams before making the move north to the Dwayne Schmidt yard at Grafton.

We have to again respect the three and a half hour commute with Sco Mo Eagle, especially given they had a home meeting at Grafton on Tuesday.

Doomben Value Bet

Race 4 No. 1 Le Dude

He isn't necessarily the easiest horse to catch for punters, however this honest seven-year-old looks to find his most suitable race this campaign.

We specked him as a roughie over this track and distance on January 16 where he proceeded to race wide throughout that journey and certainly wasn't disgraced considering.

He was excellent first-up prior to that at huge odds and despite the fluctuating distances, it's been hard to completely be against his last two efforts.

Back up to a suitable trip from barrier one and with the 2kg claim of Jackson Murphy, Le Dude is well among the each way chances in the fourth from Doomben.
