Doomben 10,000 2023 Tips


2023 Doomben 10,000 Best Bet - Giga Kick

I’m not sure there is a chink in his armour, although he does now have to drop back to 1200m after his recent All Aged triumph when stepping to 1400m for the first time.

He won the Everest in the Spring, while he was runner-up in the Group 1 TJ Smith this prep, where he didn't relish a heavy track.

The Group 1 races he’s been tackling look the strongest form line to go by, where he’s had the better of a few of these that he’s up against here.

From barrier four. Craig Williams has the opportunity to settle a pair or two closer and then chime in late off what looks a hot tempo.

2023 Doomben 10,000 Next Best Bet - Mazu

He didn’t see out the 1400m of The All Aged Stakes, so will welcome coming back to his preferred 1200m trip, where he ran Giga Kick to three-quarters of a length.

Mazu was under a length behind Giga Kick in the Everest also, so with even luck, he's arguably the one to beat if the fav finds trouble.

While he loves a rain affected track, the Team Snowden gelding is adept on all surfaces and he handled the Queenlsnad trip last year.

From just off the leaders, he looks to get a soft run in transit and at Doomben, the four-year-old will want to pinch a break on Giga Kick.

2023 Doomben 10,000 Value Bet - Prince Of Boom

After streeting his opposition first-up over 1000m, he was entitled to race a little flat second-up, but he put in a huge effort.

Prince Of Boom was gradually worn down by Rothfire and King Of Sparta over the final 50 metres, however, he put up a great fight at WFA level.

He will contest the lead with Eduardo and if he can settle early enough under his own steam, that will give him the chance to dash late.

Queensland’s leading rider James Orman will get the best out of him at this top level and he can give some of these a real scare at long odds.
