Wet tracks are impacting the Carnival and are likely to once again, given the consistent rain in Brisbane over the past week.

At $1.50 via Neds, Zaaki is a red-hot favourite to repeat last year's triumph in the 2022 Doomben Cup.

Doomben Cup 2022 Tips

2022 Doomben Cup Best Bet - Zaaki

He's a triple Group 1 winner and belted them in last year's Doomben Cup.

Zaaki is looking for the 2000m at this stage of his prep after not getting get it all his own way in the Group 2 Hollindale Stakes last run, as Polly Grey and Kukeracha came hard at him in the straight.

When it counted late, he rose to the challenge and fended them off on the line.

He's proven his class many times over and I'm expecting him to produce his best run of the campaign in the Doomben Cup.

2022 Doomben Cup  Next Best Bet - Polly Grey

She's the best wet tracker in the field. with all 11 of her wins coming on soft or heavy tracks.

The Chris Waller-trained mare has arguably put in the best two runs of her career at her past couple, which started with a five length romp via JRA Plate when reveling in heavy going.

Polly Grey followed that up with a great second placing behind Zaaki. keeping him honest in the finish.

If she is to win a Group 1, now is the time as she has the form on the board and conditions in her favour.

2022 Doomben Cup Value Bet - Huetor 

This former French gelding in undefeated at 2000m and did win on a heavy track over 2400m at Longchamp, so should handle the conditions.

His form in Australia has been terrific, recording three wins from five starts and it was a solid fourth behind Zaaki last run, which he'll strip fitter from.

If there was to be an upset over the short favourite, then the progressive Huetor could be the one.

Grand final hoop Kerrin McEvoy will keep Zaaki within his sights, before laying down the challenge in the straight.
