First run in 1933, this Group 1 has been taken out by some champions of the turf, including the likes of Might And Power, Juggler and Rough Habit, who was a three-time winner of the event.

At $3.80 via betM, Kovalica heads the market for the 2024 Doomben Cup.

2024 Doomben Cup Tips


2024 Doomben Cup Best Bet - Kovalica

While he's been in a winning drought since taking out last year's Queensland Derby, Kovalica wasn't well placed over shorter trips in his subsequent campaigns.

The Chris Waller-trained gelding was well supported via the Hollindale Stakes on May 11 and while he had to settle for third there, it was strong lead-up for this assignment

He recorded the fastest last 400m and 200m of that 1800m feature, and off that performance, he was looking for drier ground, an extra furlong and a softer barrier.

Now over 2000m on a firmer track and with gate three at Nash Rawiller's disposal, he's ticking plenty of boxes in what isn't a vintage edition of edition of the Doomben Cup.
2024 Doomben Cup Next Best Bet - Fawkner Park

This is harder now at Group 1 WFA level; however, this year's Doomben Cup isn't a strong one and this Annabel Neasham-trained import has well and truly earned his shot

After winning his first five starts in Australia over autumn and winter last year, the 2023 spring came too soon for Fawkner Park, where he was tried over shorter trips.

2000m is the sweet spot for the son of Zoffany and he's bounced back to winning form over this distance via his last two, having recorded an Albury/Wagga Cup double.

While this is his hardest test to date, Fawkner Park still has upside and as in-form galloper who does have brilliance on good ground, he has to among the chances here.
2024 Doomben Cup Value Bet - Vow And Declare

Given some of his long starting prices in Group 1 company and with a lack of fresh winning form, you'll likely get a better quote for Vow And Declare closer to the jump.

The 2019 Melbourne Cup winner has been a terrific campaigner for connections, with the gelding just short of $7.5 million in prize money and he continues to show up.

In a weak Doomben Cup, his most recent Group 1 WFA performances over this trip stand out, having recorded a second in the Caulfield Stakes behind Alligator Blood.

Vow And Declare beat Duais there, a mare who was then unlucky in the Cox Plate, while in the Australia Cup last start, he finished alongside Atishu and she'd be a short fav in this.
