Doomben Tips August 12

BRC MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL Maiden Plate Tips (Race 3)

Doomben Best Bet - Race 3 No. 8 Tayella

Second-up for Toby and Trent Edmonds, this I Am Invincible mare was backed as if unbeatable on debut when disappointing at Eagle Farm.

After opening $2 on that occasion, she was truckloaded into $1.35 on race morning then drifting late in the piece to jump as $1.70 favourite.

Slow away from the gates, the whole race didn’t go to plan for the four-year-old, forced to run three wide the trip and jockey Robbie Fradd stated post-race that the hard Eagle Farm surface didn’t suit.

After a three week break between runs and now on a surface with genuine give in it, Tayella can breakthrough as the best bet at Doomben.

TAB LONG MAY WE PLAY Class 3 Handicap Tips (Race 6)

Doomben Value Bet - Race 6 No. 4 Hearts Lifted

Another trial star who failed to deliver first-up, this Michael Costa-trained six-year-old looks perfectly placed to return to the winners circle second-up.

After an excellent performance in her trials leading into this preparation, everything went wrong from the jump for the lightly raced Hinchinbrook mare.

Well supported on the day, she missing the start and failed to pick up at any stage of the race, with the Soft 6 conditions a likely contributing factor.

Stepping back onto drrer ground suits where she has only missed the placings once from five starts including two wins and Jag Guthmann-Chester takes the ride.

MOUNT FRANKLIN Class 1 Plate Tips (Race 7)

Doomben Next Best Bet - Race 7 No. 6 Still Invincible

Narrowly going down in his stable debut for Tony Gollan, the former Victorian was heavily supported in betting on the day, jumping at $2.10 after opening at $6.

Formerly with the McEvoy stable, connections had a strong enough opinion of the five-year-old I Am Invincible gelding to run in the Listed Hilton Stakes as a three-year-old.

Jumping from barrier ten at Ipswich, Ryan Maloney was forced to cross the field to take up the lead, hanging on bravely to only go down by half a length.

Drawn perfectly to find the lead from barrier two, Maloney combines with Tony Gollan once again and with any improvement, he looks hard to hold out.


Doomben Favourite - Race 8 No. 8 Centrefire

The Chris Munce trained four-year-old finally broke through for a well deserved victory after a frustrating run of outs last start, and looks perfectly placed to make it back-to-back wins at Doomben.

Taking up the lead last start at Eagle Farm, Larry Cassidy rated the Shooting To Win mare perfectl and easily held  off Stylish Saga who franked the form with an extremely unlucky second behind Run For Glory at the Sunshine Coast.

The clock also backed up Centrefire’s win at Eagle Farm, smashing the other 1300m race on the day by over a second (1-16.96 vs 1-18.16), also easily running a stronger last 600m (34.72 vs 35.44s).

Drawn to find the lead once again from barrier four, Larry Cassidy stays aboard Centrefire who should get every chance to continue her winning ways.
