BRENT KIELLY MEMORIAL QTIS Three-Year-Old Handicap Tips (Race 2)
Doomben Next Best Bet - Race 2 No. 7 Bleu Zebra
After being prepared to back Bleu Zebra wherever she went first-up, punters were really keen to avoid her late blowing drastically before the start of the race.
The three-year-old daughter of I Am Invincible was a trial star leading into her debut and duly saluted before going down as an odds-on favourite at Eagle Farm behind Mishani Miss.
Trialling extremely well once again, the Tony Gollan-trained filly was completed unwanted by the market first-up at the Sunshine Coast in a massive drifter, running up to market expectations with a disappointing performance.
Drawn barrier three on Saturday, Bleu Zebra gains the services of Glen Boss and has one last chance to make amends from her first-up win.
TAB VENUE MODE C,G&E BM 68 Handicap Tips (Race 4)
Doomben Best Bet - Race 4 No. 11 Platinum Euros
Drawn perfectly in barrier two and gaining the services of Glen Boss, Platinum Euros was desperately unlucky at the Sunshine Coast first-up and looks primed to make amends here second-up.
A dominant winner in his first two career starts, the lightly raced four-year-old gelding trained by Natalie McCall settled midfield on the fence at the Sunshine Coast first-up, charging home to only narrowly go down to Garibaldi by the barest of margins.
Set to step up to the 1200m, the son of Eurozone gains the services of Glenn Boss who can settle in a good spot behind the speed and with even luck will be winning.
Platinum Euros can make amends for his desperately close loss last start as the best bet of the day at Doomben this Friday.
RACECOURSE VILLAGE DOOMBEN MILE Tips (Race 5)
Doomben Feature Tip - Race 5 No. 2 Le Juge
Although there is little denying Ballistic Boy is a well deserved favourite who will prove extremely hard to beat, after a luckless run at the Sunshine Coast behind Ballistic Boy, Le Juge can go very close to turning the result around.
The Chris Waller gelding was desperately unlucky last start behind Ballistic Boy in the Mooloolaba Cup, never seeing daylight down the entire straight to only finish three-lengths off the winner.
An eight-year-old gelding by Dansili, Le Juge has produced his best from at Doomben and especially over the mile, winning five of ten starts at Doomben, three from six over the Doomben mile.
Le Juge will have a positional advantage in running over the favourite under Luke Dittman from barrier three and will prove hard to get past.
NUTURF Class 2 Handicap Tips (Race 6)
Doomben Value Bet - Race 6 No. 16 Adelase
Stepping up to the mile for the first time this preparation, Adelase has been running well without luck but looks primed to run a peak race on Friday night.
A four-year-old mare out of the Barry Baldwin yard, the daughter of Poet's Choice has been screaming out for the mile following two terrific runs over 1400m at the Sunshine Coast, including finishing hard on the heels of See Marie.
Generally a get back run on horse, Adelase has often taken a more prominent run in transit when running over a mile and beyond, and expect Mark Du Plessis to do that once again from barrier one.
Set to step out fourth-up over the mile, Adelase has been building beautifully this preparation and finds the perfect race to breakthrough.
GUINEAS ROOM UNVEILING 12TH DECEMBER Class 4 Plate Tips (Race 7)
Doomben Favourite - Race 7 No. 3 Angus The Black
It was a horror show from the beginning for Angus The Black last start at Doomben and can make amends from barrier five under Ryan Maloney.
After recording a terrific win at Ipswich first-up, Ryan Maloney was forced to take the Tony Gollan trained son of Rothesay to last at Doomben last start where he never saw clear room, charging through the field hard held.
Despite the form guide stating he finished eighth, the four-year-old was never asked for an effort until the 50m mark, where Maloney have him one with the whip and picked up immediately.
Drawn to land in a perfect spot from barrier five, last start was Angus The Black's only run out of the placings at Doomben and looks perfectly placed to return to the winning enclosure third-up under Ryan Maloney.
