Doomben Racing Tips For May 13 2020

Doomben Best Bet

Race 6 No. 4 Empire Games

We specked this gelding second-up on April 29 after a forgivable fresh attempt and he was only a stride off reeling in Mitta Merry over the mile at the Sunshine Coast.

By Adelaide and out of a Redoute's Choice mare who's only race wins came over a staying journey, the breeding suggests that the trip should be ideal now and he is one of the better weighted runners in the field.

With a 2.5kg weight swing on Mitta Merry and 1.5kg advantage on Don't Despair (third in that same race),  Empire Games is well in off that last start contest and now has the services of Jim Byrne in the saddle, one of Queensland's best riders.

A peak performance is closing in for Empire Games and providing they can make use of barrier two early, he's found a nice race to bring up victory number two as the best bet at Doomben.

Doomben Next Best Bet

Race 8 No. 9 Zoucara

Fitter and from a kinder map than her main threats have, I'm giving one more chance to this Chris Munce-trained mare who's been knocking on the door all preparation.

She resumed off a five week freshen-up to reel in all bar Gee Tee Tee on April 29, a handy galloper who had won his prior start by a massive five and a half lengths.

This doesn't appear to be any harder and step up to the 1350m appears favorable now where jockey Ryan Wiggins can slot her midfield or potentially a shade closer from barrier four.

Zoucara was only narrowly defeated by Goodonya Sonya first-up, a mare that's rated well above anything in this field and off that sort of form, she should be hard to beat in the last from Doomben.
